Xolo Q1000 review: value for money, thy name is Android
8 March 2014
Conclusion: Personally I hate Micromax for their awkward designs and bad UI. The Karbonn S5 Titanium has better feel to the body but it lacks an HD screen, which I feel is vital these days due to excessive amounts of internet/multimedia content we feed on. So, I would choose the Xolo Q1000 anyway over its competitors due to better all-round specifications, performance and good looks.
Summary: Priced at Rs 14,990, the Xolo Q1000 seems a little high-priced as compared to the Xolo Q700 , which sports almost the exact hardware and is available for Rs 9,999. So the Rs 5,000 premium that the Q1000 is charging is only for a half inch bigger display, a slightly higher resolution camera and a better looking phone. The core performance does not justify the high price. We suggest opting for the Xolo Q700 and save on the dough.
Summary: Smartphones with 5 inch displays are flooding the market and the Xolo Q1000 Opus is not a bad choice if you are looking for a budget smartphone under 10k with a decent performance and good set of specifications.
Pros: Quad-core SoC in budget, Good gaming experience
Cons: Low display resolution, Camera performance is not very good
Summary: The Q1000 offers a good build, impressive display and a smooth touch experience. Apps and games ran well on the smartphone except Real Racing 3. On the downside, the camera is average and the device is fingerprint magnet and you get a mere 4GB built-in storage. If you are in the market to pick up a 5-inch quad-core budget smartphone such as the Canvas HD, Lava Iris 504q, Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro along with the Gionee Elife E3 before making your purchase decision.
Pros: Well-built, Good display, Smooth multitasking
Cons: Lacklustre camera, Real Racer hung the device
Summary: With the smartphone market growing rapidly, smartphone manufacturers, especially the Indian vendors are competing hard by lowering their price point. But does that affect the quality of the smartphone experience? The Xolo Q1000 Opus, is one such example of the company’s sub-Rs. 10000 smartphone. The Xolo Q1000 Opus, is part of the company’s popular Q-Core range which features smartphones with quad core processors.
Summary: After its first Intel partnership for the X Series phones, Xolo partnered with Broadcom to launch the Q1000 Opus last month that features the latest quad-core Broadcom chip. Most of the Xolo phones in the Q CORE series uses a MediaTek chip and the Xolo Q500 uses a Snapdragon 200 processor.
Pros: Decent build, Decent performance, Dual SIM smart on feature

Conclusion: Xolo Q1000 is a strong competition to its rivals under this price bracket. It has good build quality, a very good display, and facilitates sturdy and swift performance. So for a top notch experience with decent features and an affordable price, this phone should definitely be on your list.
Summary: Xolo is one company among the herds that is making amazing products for a lower price but crucially without compromising the quality. Their new device, the XOLO Q1000 is a brilliant example for the other budget smart phone makes on how Xolo Q1000 has been made into a powerful yet a fair priced device. It fancies a Mideatek 1.2GHz Quad Core processor along with 1GB of RAM. It also has a decent 8MP primary camera and a 1.2MP secondary camera.
Summary: Available as a featured smart phone, Xolo Q1000 comes as an affordable Jelly Bean device from the homegrown brand. A dual-SIM mobile phone, it has been included with quad-core processor and possesses a premium design, giving other expensive handsets run for their money. • Bright display • Runs on Jelly Bean 4.2 • Good build quality • Smooth multitasking • Lacklustre camera motion • Battery not up to the mark • Average loud speaker Xolo has come out with its new smart...
