Xolo Q700S launched for Rs 9,999: is it the best quad core below Rs 10,000?

By January 22nd, 2014 AT 5:23 AM

Xolo, the premium brand of Lava has emerged as one of the best manufacturers of smartphone in the budget segment in the country. The company has just launched a budget smartphone, the Xolo Q700S in India for Rs 9,999 which we believe might just be the best budget handset in the sub Rs 10,000 range which comes with a quad core processor. Let us have a look at its specifications:


  • It has a 4.5 inch capacitive display which has a resolution of 854×480 pixels. You can’t really expect more in this price range because a 720p display would raise the price.
  • Under the hood is a 1.3 GHz quad core Mediatek MT6582M processor which has already proven its worth in the budget segment
  • It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and seeing the fact that the Indian companies are moving towards upgrading their devices, it might just get 4.3 treatment as well.
  • It gets a 1GB RAM for multitasking, a 4GB internal memory and you get a microSD card as well to expand the memory by 32 GB
  • There’s an 8MP snapper at the rear which supports 1080p video recording and there’s a VGA camera as well up front for video calling
  • Its a Dual SIM device and supports two GSM cards.
  • To ensure you remain connected at all times, you get 3G,  WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS
  • Giving it the juice is a 1,800 mAh battery
  • It comes in a metallic finish which gives it a premium look.
  • It will be available in golden and silver colours at a price of Rs 9,999

 If I were in the market for a budget quad core device in the sub Rs 10,000 range, for me, the buck stops here. What about you?

I am also waiting for MOTO G, I am ready to buy MOTO G even if it costs 13-14k as it is worth paying 40% more for its speed, display and front cam of 1.3MP(as I am a regular skype video caller). When doing video calls it will be better if we have 1.3MP rather than VGA.
Last but not the least battery must be more than 2000MAh to stay tunned for 16hrs minimum. so that we can come back home with some battery juice left without any tension of battery dead.
