XOLO has recently launched its new handset, XOLO Q3000 which comes with a powerful battery of 4000 mAh and 5.7 FHD touchscreen display, Handset is powered by Mediatex MT6589T processor which is clocked at 1.5GHz. Its a dual sim handset and is priced for INR 20,500 in India market, though you can get good deals from different eCommerce website. The processor is the same which is used in Micromax Canvas Turbo, Gionee Elife E6, Intex Aqua i7 and Karbonn Titanium X. Lets check how this new handset of XOLO is different from others.

Let see what we find while we open the box of this handset.

  • Extra Scratch Guard
  • Flip Cover
  • Micro USB Cable
  • Xolo's branded headset with mic
  • USB Travel Charger Plug
  • Micro USB OTG Cable

Display, Looks, Connectivity and Features
Handset weighs 202 grams (with battery) and is 9.69mm thick. It is 151 mm in long and 81.66 mm in width. This handset comes with a bigger screen and a bigger battery of 4000 mAh capacity.

Display of this handset is 5.7 inch IPS screen which supports 1080 full HD resolution. Pixel density is of 386 pixels per inches. Its touch is smooth, responsive and with good viewing angles. Handset has proximity, light, accelerometer gyro and magnetic sensors.Handset runs on Android 4.2.1 OS.

Wish this handset, you will get 3 touch sensitive back-lit buttons on the front bottom; sensors / in call speaker and 5MP front camera on the front top. On right, Power button, on left volume rockers and on the top side you will find USB power and 3.5 mm audio jack.

Memory and Storage
Q3000 comes with 2GB RAM and has a inbuilt memory of 16 GB which can be expanded up to 32 GB using micro SD card. Out of the total inbuilt memory of 16 GB, 12 GB is allocated as phone storage and 0.98 for apps. Balance space is allocate for the system. It supports OTG and users can install apps on the external storage.

Q3000 Performance
This dual SIM handset is using the MT6589T MediaTek quad core chipset clocked at 1.5GHz with PowerVR SGX 544 MP GPU. It is with the same hardware that powers the Micromax Canvas Turbo A250. Performance is near about the same. Benchmark scores of Q3000 were not impressive as compared to today's high end phones available in the market.

In terms of videos, our expectation were not matched. Device was able to run various formats up to 720 p resolution, but 1080p formats were not watchable. Few files did'nt play even.

Benchmark scores
AnTuTu – 15438.
Quadrant Standard – 5730.
Nenamark 2 – 34.0 fps
Vellamo – HTML5 1554, Metal 584.
Multi touch : 5 points.

Its rear camera of 13 megapixel was good, but we believe you can get even betters camera results in other available phone in market. If you compare the result with Micromax Magnus A117, you will find Magnus will deliver better result. Even front camera of 5 megapixel delivered average results.


Devise is packed with a powerful battery of 4000 mAh, for which company claim will deliver talk time up to 21 hours on 3G and 33 hours on 2G. We believe users can play games continuously for 4 to 6 hours after charging the handset. In this price range, its battery definitely has an edge over other competitors.

3G(42Mbps), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth worked well. The GPS is with EPO and A-GPS support. It GPS looks very attractive, Sound is clear and loud.

The XOLO Q3000 features looks good as compared to other quad core handset available in market. However it seems to be price on a higher side. At the same price you can get option to select from the below octa core smartphone.It will definitely have competition against the recently launched Intex Octa Core Powered smart phone.
