There were great expectations from the Xolo Q800, and it has performed up to its expectations. Micromax Canvas HD still remains unavailable and out of stock, and Xolo Q800 is its competitor and will take advantage of no stock of the Micromax Canvas HD. During our testing we found that the Xolo Q800 performs well and is at par with the Micromax Canvas HD. Our Xolo Q800 review covers up everything that is there in the mobile.The Xolo Q800 comes in India at Rs. 12499, which is about Rs. 2000 less than Micromax Canvas HD. Box Pack The Xolo comes with normal accessories including 2100 mAh battery, handset, earphones, manual, user guide, micro USB and adapter. Other than these accessories the Xolo Q800 box also includes screen protector that fits perfectly on the screen. Xolo Q800 Design The design of the Xolo Q800 is very good, and in look and feel its truly great. The Xolo Q800 feels like a very expensive mobile. The Xolo Q800 has 3 soft buttons on the front side. It also has volume buttons on the sides, as well as a sleep button. On the rear side of the Xolo Q800 there is the logo and 8 Mega pixels camera. The front side also includes a small 1 Mega pixels front camera. Display The Xolo Q800 has 4.5 inch qHD screen which has crystal clear display. The display is very sharp and bright and the handset also performs very well in low light. When tested we found that it has 5 point touch screen display which is quite enough. The Xolo Q800 display looks much more sharper than the Micromax Canvas HD, probably because it has smaller screen. Memory and Storage The Xolo Q800 has 1GB RAM, in which we found around 700MB free for user. Other than the RAM, it also has 4GB internal storage in which 1.7GB is user accessible. Micro SD card was also supported in the mobile. Processor and performance The Xolo Q800 is powered by Quad Core MT6589 Processor along with PowerVR SGX 544 GPU. The performance of the Xolo Q800 was very good and there were no lags whats so ever. The Xolo Q800 was capable of playing Modern Combat 4. As it can play Modern Combat 4, we also expect that it will also play other high end games. Benchmarking AnTuTu – 12560 Quadrant – 4051 Nenamark2 – 58fps Multi touch – 5 point Cameras The Xolo Q800 has 8MP back camera along with 1MP front camera. We found that the back camera was capable of capturing videos in 1080p too. The front camera also performs well. The Xolo Q800 also was able to capture images in low light. Entertainment The Xolo Q800 easily played 1080p videos, so in movie watching it performs well. We tried YouTube streaming and found that it performed well, and was capable of streaming 720p videos too. In gaming the Xolo Q800 is capable of playing high end games like the Modern Combat 4 and Need For Speed Most Wanted smoothly. Sound Quality The sound quality of the Xolo Q800 was at par with other handsets similar to it. The headphones provided with it are also very good, and you can hear the sounds very clearly. The speakers of the Xolo Q800 are also loud enough for normal usage. Battery Life The Xolo Q800 has 2100 mAh battery, which lasts easily for 1 and half days. The battery lasts easily for 1 and half day in normal usage. But heavy gaming consumes too much battery and during heavy gaming we found that the battery lasted for just about 4 hours. Xolo Q800 Review The Xolo Q800 is really a good device in this price range. For Rs. 12499 you get great performance, good looks and great display. The only bad side of the Xolo Q800 was that it has only 2100 mAh battery. The battery doesn’t run for long if you are a heavy gamer. So be sure to carry the adapter if you are keen on gaming. Other than this the Xolo Q800 deserves a thumbs up, and it is the best quad core mobile currently with the Micromax Canvas HD unavailable.

Reply Bryan January 20th, 2014 Hi, Not all 3.5 mm headphones work with this mobile. Only the headphones that came bundled with the pack works well. My other Samsung and HTC headphones works but a lot of music quality loss. Importantly, the headphones that came with Q800 is not of a great quality and the build is very poor that the diaphragm started coming out just in few days. Is there any way we can sort this issue out? Reply Sachin Antony January 20th, 2014 Try using headphones of mp3 players or common earphones.not one that is part of a mobile brand,try something like the earphone of ipod or any other mp3 player.
