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.

My other Samsung and HTC headphones works but a lot of music quality loss.

And btw the internal memory is less, but you can move apps to sd card.5. My age is a secret, but I can say that I am younger than you ! 😛 Thanks a lot for your feedback ! I will try my best to continue the good work.

Mr. Shubhrajit Chakraborty If you have any solution regarding my problem so please help me. Reply Arvind May 10th, 2013 Thanks for all your great reviews and info. The Q800 is a super phone overall and I have been using it since the last three days trying out all options and specs. I faced a problem with GPS, but was able to rectify this with the amazing free app “GPS Status & Toolbox” by MobiWIA. However I am facing a peculiar problem. For SIM 1, if I choose Network Mode as “GSM/WCDMA (auto)” it shows that the SIM is on Roaming! If I choose “GSM only”, then it shows as normal. But to get 3G data, I guess one requires to choose “GSM/WCDMA (auto).”, isn’t it? But since this shows up as “Roaming” it also gives the warning that data charges will be high on roaming etc etc. Also no “3G” symbol is being displayed on this phone. Same SIM card (Idea) on other phone shows as 3G and not roaming, and I have used it freely for data. Can anyone help me with this problem, please. Thanks. – Arvind Reply Brahmnoor Singh Chawla May 10th, 2013 Hi Arvind ! Thanks for your feedback. I have “GSM/WCDMA (auto)” chosen and for me 3G and 2G both work fine. I think that what you are having is a software problem. You may try to factory reset, or the problem may be with your carrier company.

IMHO you should buy the Xolo Q800 is you like 4.5 inch mobiles, or else the Micromax Canvas HD if you like 5 inch displays. 1) Browsing – Xolo Q800, Micromax Canvas HD and the S5 all perform the same. 2) Battery – Xolo Q800 lasted the longest because of smaller display. 3) Games like this run great on all of these devices. 4) The display of Micromax Canvas HD is the sharpest with the best pixels. While the Xolo Q800 has smaller display, the S5 has bigger display with same resolution as Q800. 5) All have same radiation level. 6) Micromax has the best service between the 3 in New Delhi, but still it’s not the best.

No it doesn’t have Corning Gorilla glass. Reply Gaurav April 12th, 2013 Dear Harcharan ji, Thank you for your replies. I am planning to purchase Xolo Q800 in a day or two. I want to get some clarity on two issues: (1) Does it has good quality rear camera with good auto-focus..? (2) Does it deliver good & loud music as we have in Nokia C6-00. At present I have Motorola FireXT and its earphone volume is very poor thats why for last 12-13 months I have lost interest in music. This is a very important issue for me. Please reply about these 2 points…specially about delivery of music through earphone. I am ready to purchase a good quality earphone, if it can produce clear and loud music. Thank you sir. Reply Brahmnoor Singh Chawla April 13th, 2013 Hi ! Thanks for your feedback ! 1) Yes the camera quality is good. But not as good as Nokia. 2) Yes, the music quality is great when you use headphone, but not good if you use speakers. If you have good quality earphone, if it can produce clear and loud music.

So I can’t say anything. Reply Gopal April 16th, 2013 Hello, I am also considering the same, so would wait for your review on S5. The pricing point, features look same except the battery backup. But the availability of Xolo Q800 makes me to consider Tit’ S5. Please let me know your valuable inputs. Thanks for your time and all the hard-work for the user community! Reply Brahmnoor Singh Chawla April 18th, 2013 Hi Gopal ! Thanks for your feedback. I will be writing the Titanium S5 review soon, so do check it. Also IMHO the Xolo Q800 is better than the Titanium S5. Thanks again for your kind words !

Xolo Q800 is better b/w the two, as it has much better looks and good performance. For USB OTG you need support in the kernel so no third party app won’t do. Reply Anonymous April 9th, 2013 Sir,piz suggest me.iam from a poor family.if buy this phone,i have to use it for atleast 4 years until i get a job.iam looking for music quality and want to play normal game,xolo q800,xperia arc s,xperia j.which one is better?.i know it depened how we use.still suggest me piz sir Reply HARCHARAN SINGH April 9th, 2013 Hi ! I respect your sentiments, and if you ask me, I would suggest that you go for Sony and other reputed companies for a mobile which you have to use for 4 years. This is because the Xolo customer support is not that good, so if you run into any trouble you might have to change your mobile.

Reply HARCHARAN SINGH April 1st, 2013 Hi ! Ever phone has some defects, but believe me if you buy Xolo Q800 from FlipKart, then you wouldn’t have any problems. But, the Micromax Canvas HD has its own advantages like better display ( bigger and sharper ), better customer support etc. I think that if you buy the Xolo Q800 from Flipkart then you can claim the 30 day warranty from Flipkart itself for replacement, so its a good deal. The rest depends on you ! Reply murlidhar mishra April 8th, 2013 This comment has been removed by the author.

Believe me there are both 2G and 3G options in both SIM 1 and SIM 2 but you can use only one SIM at a time. The touch response is good but not the best, during heavy gaming it lags just a little bit, which is noticeable if you observe very closely, other than that it works good.

NexGTv etc. ) Reply Anonymous April 1st, 2013 I got Xolo Q800 from a shop in hisar, after couple of hours I noticed screen is getting black from bottom, I called XOLO care and they got the phone picked and sent it to service center, I got the phone back in 3 days but ISSUE still persist, I again got a ticket opened to get the phone replaced, but they told me there is not replacement policy, they got the phone picked and I got it back without being done on the phone, this is pathetic customer service, now if I am calling their support, all I am getting is, we can only replace the handset if the backend team confirms that the phone cannot be repaired. What should be done with this kind of company. Reply HARCHARAN SINGH April 1st, 2013 Hi ! I agree that Xolo must improve its service to be successful, but you should try to email them and post a written complaint to them, so that your issue is resolved. I did not have to claim warranty yet so I don’t know about their after sales service. Reply Mathivanan Ramachandran March 31st, 2013 Good review, I’ve reviewed in http://www.mindsbuilding.com. I bought thus phone for 12299/-. But I’m bit disappointed with the touch response. Takes two, three touches, may be due to scratch guard they fixed. Does anyone experience the same? Reply Anonymous April 1st, 2013 Hi ! No I did not have any such problems, I have this headset and it is very good. I guess that your headset may be faulty so you should claim warranty.

Reply Anonymous May 30th, 2013 there is one difference between these two phones………..in xolo q800 you can store the apps directly into SD card but in canvas hd apps will be stored in internal memory due to which huge space demanding games will not work properly and this is the only reason in which canvas hd lacks Reply SVSagar March 31st, 2013 hai, i liked your review very much, but please tell me about the music playback clarity of this phone. for me music is very important mostly i use earphones Reply SVSagar March 31st, 2013 hai, i liked your review very much, but please tell me about the music playback clarity of this phone. for me music is very important mostly i use earphones Reply HARCHARAN SINGH March 31st, 2013 In earphones the sound quality is really good, but in speaker the sound is not very loud.
