Xolo, the company which is popularly known for the inbuilt quality of its devices recently launched their first budget device with Android 4.4 Kitkat out of the box. However, the company is not the first to join the budget smartphone lineup running with Android Kitkat but still they are not too late. Earlier Motorola and Micromax had already introduced their Moto E and Unite 2 Kitkat devices respectively.

Xolo launched the device officially in India with latest Android kitkat due to the demand of the consumers for a powerful OS with good amount of specifications and Xolo has never compromised with quality and specifications when it comes to powerful Android budget device. However, the device is decent enough to be priced at Rs. 8,499 and lower according to the retailer’s price.
So, let’s jump into my quick review of the device and see what specifications sheet Xolo has added to into its work to compete with already existing key players.
- The device comes with 4.5-inch (960 ×540 pixels) qHD capacitive touch screen IPS display.
- The device is powered with a powerful processor which is clocked at 1.2 GHz quad-core Broadcom BCM 23550 processor with 312 MHz Video core IV GPU.
- It runs the latest version of Android i.e. Android 4.4 (KitKat).
- Device also supports Dual SIM (GSM + GSM) with Dual Standby.
- Device is added with 5MP rear camera with LED Flash which gives direct competition to Unite 2 by Micromax.
- 0.3MP (VGA) front-facing camera is also added for decent enough selfies.
- 3.5mm audio jack, FM Radio
- Memory management arrives with 1GB RAM, 4GB of internal memory, expandable memory with microSD
- Connectivity options like 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS are available.
- Device is powered up with 2000 mAh battery inside.
The most interesting fact about the display on Xolo Q600s is that it is added with One Glass Solution technology which is not present in any other budget devices with Android 4.4 Kitkat. The qHD display on the device performs the decent job when it comes to high pixel density and good color reproduction.The 4.5 inch display doesn’t seem to be falling off when compared with rest of the devices in this segment.
Processor on the device is as much powerful as on Micromax Unite 2 or Motorola Moto E. The processor is clocked at 1.2 GHz and is quad-core Broadcom processor which performs exceptionally well at multi-tasking and gaming. However, no GPU has been specified for the device so, this can make some trouble for those who are willing to lay high graphic intensive games on it.
Camera on the device gives parallel head to head competition to Micromax Unite 2. The camera on Moto E is far behind than Unite 2 or Xolo Q600s because of the absence of LED flash light. The device is added with a 0.3 MP VGA camera which is OK for selfies or video calls but this feature is absent on Moto E which makes the Moto E to lose in the camera segment for the race.
This was my first review about the first hands on with the device. Will be coming up with full review soon, stay tuned with us for more fascinating stuff and reviews.
