XOLO Q2500 Review

Xolo is pushing the envelope now. They do not have that marketing power of Micromax, but they make amazingly brilliant phones. This is a classic HTC-Samsung kind of thing worldwide, the marketer wins. XOLO Q2500 seems to be a phone out in desperation. It is really amazing but we feel Xolo added some of the stuff in pressure. Let us take a closer look at the Xolo Q2500.


Design

Xolo Q2500 has a very nice round body. It is not round around but the curves are in such a way it seems like a pebble in your hand. The metallic built and cold lustre gives this phone that wow factor when you hold it. It is just above ordinary and you would not feel like holding a chunk of something. The built quality is pretty awesome. The only problem is the phone would not sit flat on the desk because of the lens that gives it a small plank but that is okay. The phone is quiet large though.

Display

The phone has a really crisp HD display. It is 6 inches long diagonally and has a resolution of 720×1280 pixels. It is an HD display over 6 inches so it is not as sharp as that of a 5 inch HD display. Xolo Q2500 has a good looking display. You sooth your eyes looking at it and there are warm colours with sharp detailing, sharp enough to make you think it is a quality display which it actually is. The 6 inch gives you an additional reason to go out and carry all your entertainment over the smartphone. Watching movies and gaming are really cool on board.

Camera

The 8MP camera on the back of the Xolo Q2500 takes amazing photos. It has good shutter speeds and it catches your subject pretty quickly and then the shutter does the job. The up side is you take photos quiet quickly and there are less blurry images. In low light conditions the camera performs really poor and you should avoid it. The full HD video recording looks brilliant but the lack of image stabilization is evident. The voice quality could have been better too.

Software

This is interesting right here. Out of the box you get Android v4.2 Jelly Bean which is upgradable to up to v4.4 KitKat. So yeah you get KitKat on the Xolo Q2500. This is a huge bonus that Xolo Q2500 gives you over all other budget smartphone. The basic user interface is quiet normal and I would say boring, but that is something others are not exceptional at anyway.

Performance

With the 1.3GHz Quad Core processor and 1GB RAM you get a nice smooth response from the phone. Xolo Q2500 has moderate battery life, one or one and half day of battery backup on moderate usage. You also get 4GB of internal space storage expandable to up to 32GB. Xolo Q2500 is one of the faster phones and you should not be afraid of anything known as lag.
