Update – (10/02/2015)
This is just to notify you all that Xolo Q1200 is a defective phone and has manufacturing defects. The battery has issues and DEFINITELY WORTH THE BUY. Read the whole story here.
Xolo Q1200, the next smartphone added to Xolo’s arsenal, seems to be catching a trend. After Moto G this smartphone may be the that smartphone taking rounds around your ears. The only deficit the Mediatek processor, which not many tech freaks prefer.
- Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- 293ppi pixel density with 720p resolution
- Dual Window
- Xolo Safe Tracking
- Upgradable to Android Kitkat v4.4
- Gesture Control
- Rear end heats up
- Sony Exmor lens gives decent images
1.3 GHz Quad Core MT6582 mediatek processor seems to do a pretty decent job along with 1 GB of ram coupled with the Mali 400 MP2 GPU which soothes the Graphical interface. The 2,000 mAh battery does a day’s back up but is expected to jump up by couple of few more hours when this device gets kicked in with the Android 4.4 Kitkat version.
The Q1200 flatters the external microSD memory slot over Motorola’s Moto G. It has dual rear speakers capable of Dolby digital technology and it is pretty loud, but when it’s rear is faced to an surface the loudness gets suppressed to an great extent.
The display is quiet vivid, saturation of color may be a minor issue but there is no such noticeable change. This device has a 5 inch IPS Display which is protected with damage resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It has an resolution of 1280 by 720 which is decent and also has a pixel density of 293ppi which is a little less compared to the Moto G’s 323 ppi.
The camera focuses pretty quick you have dual LED flash to back it up during low lighting but under cropping you notice huge pixelation, the images blur out even when you zoom, but this is only during low lighting conditions. This device flaunts it’s Exmor RS lens provided by Sony, but this does not do wonders with it.
The rear end is the one with the Sony Exmor RS Lens which is an 8MP one while the front one is a 2MP one.
I personally own the Xolo Q1200 Smartphone and I have found this device to be pretty slim but it’s on the slightly heavier side due to it’s metallic uni-body back cover. The device is pretty slim though measuring a mere 6.85mm.
The problems that one may face with this device is getting used to the left sided volume rocker and power button, for the lefty’s this is a blessing in disguise. The other issue with this device is that it gets heated up quickly around the camera region and temperatures soar up to 41 degrees.
The other thing that I did not like in this Xolo smartphone needs a pin to remove the micro slim slot and memory card slot, so in case you loose that pin, inserting a new memory and a sim card is an issue. The battery is also non removable on an positive note this device has almost everything to compete with the current reigning champion in that budget range.
The device has dual window functionality which is thumbs up along with that the gesture control does work smoothly, it may take time to get used to it though.
If you want a device with the high end processor and you do not need much of memory the Moto G is recommended. But if you need something with an additional storage then the Xolo Q1200 is preferable. Both devices have a similar price tag of 13,999 Indian Rupees.
