Xolo Q1010i review


Published on

The sucessor to the XOLO Q1010, the Q1010i offers near-identical specs, but sweetens the deal with an 8MP primary camera with a Sony Exmor R sensor. Priced in the sub-Rs 15,000 segment, the Q1010i has its work cut out for it in terms of competition, and will have to contend with big names like the Moto G and Nokia Lumia 630. Here's a quick review in pictures.

Xolo Q1010i review

  1. 1. XOLO Q1010i Review in pictures
  2. 2. Quality finish in a sleek frame • Encased in an 8.3mm frame, the phone is a sleek, rectangular slab with a chrome strip running along the edges. • It skips the onscreen controls for Android navigation buttons below the display • The matte-finish back panel is removable • There’s also a free flip cover included in the box
  3. 3. Vibrant, responsive display • The dual-SIM handset sports a large 5-inch IPS display with 720p resolution, with Asahi scratch-resistant protection • The screen is vibrant and great for watching videos • There’s also a glove mode, and support for gesture controls too
  4. 4. The snapper is the heart of the phone… • The Q1010i features an 8MP primary camera with a Sony Exmor R sensor, f/2.0 aperture and 5-element lens • The camera app is quite basic, offering HDR, Panorama, Scene Modes and Smile detection • You can also choose colour effects, white balance, ISO and exposure • The 2MP front camera can capture decent selfies, but lags when it detects movement
  5. 5. …with good results that lack the wow factor • The primary camera can capture videos in 1080p • Macro shots are sharp with a nice depth of field effect, but landscapes lack detail when zoomed in
  6. 6. Almost stock Android with minimal bloatware • The dual-SIM smartphone ships with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, with a KitKat update on the way • Runs an almost stock version of Android, with barely any bloatware • Includes the XOLO Power app to keep a check on battery and CPU usage
  7. 7. Fine for routine tasks, but not intensive games • The Q1010i is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek 6582 processor that can handle routine usage and mutitasking • The Mali 400-MP2 GPU is fine for light gaming, but not ideal for heavy graphics • There’s 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage
  8. 8. Battery that gives you a day’s worth of juice • The phone is fuelled by a 2,250mAh battery • It easily lasts a day on a single charge • You can configure a Low Battery Mode or Night Mode from the XOLO Power app • Our standard video loop test gave us eight hours of juice
  9. 9. At a glance • 5-inch, 1,280 x 720 pixels (294 ppi) • 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MTK6582 processor • Mali 400-MP2 GPU • 1GB RAM • 8GB inbuilt storage with microSD slot • 8MP primary camera with flash, 2MP front camera • Android 4.2.2 (upgradable to KitKat) • 2,250mAh battery • Dual-SIM 3G (micro-SIM, 3G support only on the primary slot), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and USB OTG
  10. 10. - • Average front camera • Not great for intensive gaming • Non-backlit navigation keys Pros and cons + • Premium build quality • Vibrant display • Good primary camera • Day-long battery life • Near-stock Android
  11. 11. Price: Rs 13,499 Pricing and verdict “The XOLO Q1010i offers commendable features and build quality, and the prospect of an Android KitKat update is the cherry on top. The lauded primary camera isn’t all that it’s made out to be, but is still better than a majority of smartphones at this price range.”
