About a year ago, XOLO launched the Q1011 smartphone at the price of 9999 Rupees that featured some really cool specs. After one year, the price of the phone has been dropped to 6499 Rupees, but it is still a good phone to buy.
The camera enthusiasts might love this phone because of its capability to shoot 1080P videos with a 8MP rear camera. The specification that this phone packs, making it a piece of attraction, but is this phone capable of giving a tough competition to the popular brands like Motorola and Xiaomi? Let’s find out.
Design and Display
The XOLO Q1011 just looks like any other budget smartphones with not much attractive design. The cheap plastic body with the glossy finish makes this phone a fingerprint magnet. However, the inside of the phone is really sturdy and durable.
5 inch displays on a budget level phone have become normal these days, but what really matters on a display is the pixel resolution. The resolution of 1280 X 720 pixels gives this phone a pixel density of 294 PPI, which is not bad in any sense.
Auto focus Camera with 1080P Recording
The 8 MP rear camera is auto-focus and able to record FHD video along with some stunning crispy images with great level of details. As mentioned earlier also, the rear camera is capable of shooting 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. The videos shot in low lighting conditions pack much detail, thanks to the BSI sensor that captures more light compared to other sensors on budget smartphones.
While it comes to consider a selfie smartphone, the 2MP front page shooter is not far behind. You will get a good experience of video calling and selfie session.
The XOLO Q1011 performs great in processing of the low intense tasks. 1.3 GHz MediaTek processor and Mali 400GP2 GPU are neatly integrated and best suited for in adherence to the multitasking. It features 1GB of RAM and 4GB of on-board storage that can be expanded up to 32 GB using a micro SD Card.
It is powered by a 2250 mAh battery that according to the manufacturer gives power back up of 26 hours on 2G network and 13 hours on 3G networks.
It is a dual SIM phone that supports the following bands- GSM: 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 HSDPA: 900 / 2100. 2100 MHz band smooth network connectivity gives it a fast network speed optimization. Other connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and micro USB.
The XOLO Q1011 also comes equipped with the sensors like Accelerometer, Proximity sensor and Ambient light sensor.
The phone runs a stock version of Android 4.4 KitKat, which is why the whole interface happens to be quite smooth. You will not find a single stutter, no matter how much processing the phone is loaded with. However, upgradability to the Android Lollipop would have been appreciated.
- HD IPS display with a pixel density of 294 PPI
- 8 MP rear camera with BSI senor with full HD recording capability. Another 2 MP camera on the front
- Long battery life
- The interface is very smooth
- The build material feels cheap
- Only 4GB of internal storage
The strongest point of this phone is its camera. The BSI sensor does its job well by capturing as much light as possible. The high density display gives an immersive experience and the gaming on this phone is just awesome. However, the cheap plastic body and unattractive design make this phone look bad.
