Xolo recently announced its two new Smartphone’s in two different budget segments. Xolo Play 6X-1000 has been released for high end market with price tag of around 14000Rs where as Xolo Q500s has been unveiled to tackle the mid range market priced around Rs 5000. Both the Smartphone’s have been priced at attractive rates. Let’s check whether they are worth the money you spend or not.

Xolo - The next level

Xolo Play 6X-1000: This Smartphone is a next generation speedy Smartphone at this range with a hexa core processor. It flaunts a 5inch large display with 720p resolution an runs on a hexacore Mediatek’s Cortex A7 processor clocked at a lightning fast speed of 1.5GHz quite enough for the Smartphone under this price tag. A Mali 450 GPU is also added for enhancing the graphics of this Smartphone. This monstrous processor has been rightly united with 2GB of RAM to exploit the power of 6 cores flawlessly. Besides the best processing combination it has also got an 8MP primary camera with auto focus and is capable of recording 1080p videos. 8GB of internal storage is also present. To run this beast, it has been provided with 2100mAh battery which can rightly give you a good day of usage. The network and connectivity features are same as other Smartphone of this range. It is compatible with 2G, 3G networks and is granted with Bluetooth v4.0, WIFI and GPS. This Smartphone will be soon available in stores and is currently available on eBay and will be available in colour options of black and white to choose from.

Xolo Q500s: This mid ranger features a 4.0inch WVGA IPS display. It operates on Quad core 1.3GHz Mediatek’s cortex A7 processor along with Mali 400 GPU. This high speed processor has been coupled with a 512MB RAM which is just an average RAM specification at this price. However, the processor speed is up to the mark. It houses a 5MP primary camera which is also capable of recording 1080p videos. A 4GB of internal storage is present which is expandable via micro SD card. 2G and 3G networks are supported by this Smartphone and connectivity options include WIFI, Bluetooth v3.0 and GPS. This Smartphone is packed with a 1500mAh of average battery backup.

Both these Smartphone’s are launched with Android Kit Kat 4.4.2 operating System and they have expectedly arrived to compete Moto E and Unite 2 which were recently released under low range Kit Kat Smartphone’s. The Xolo Play 6X 1000 has got the specs to win the heart of customers and can give Xolo a good kick start in Kit Kat range of Smartphone’s. But it is also noticeable that except a bit of extra speed achieved via Quad core processor is the only show off thing for Xolo Q500s while the rest of the features are expectedly average just like the Smartphone’s produced by other developers. Xolo Play 6X 1000 can be regarded as the worth for money Smartphone but for Xolo Q500s we can say that it is also a good one but the identical range from different developers must be taken into account before carting it.

It is that time again when the battle of the Indian manufactured smartphones is back. This time it is the battle of the latest flagships from our very own Micromax, Karbonn and Lava owned Xolo. The phones battling it out for them are the Micromax A240 Canvas Doodle (will be mentioned henceforth as Doodle), Karbonn Titanium S9 (Karbonn S9) and the Xolo Play T1000 (Xolo Play). These latest offerings are the newest and best phones in their respective stables, so flagships as you may also like to call them by. We are going to pitch them all against one another to find out which phone is the most superior among the three.

Build and Design:
Build wise all three phones are equally sturdily built. Though you cannot actually compare them with Nokia, HTC, Samsung, etc. but for the price point that they are available at, they are excellently built phones. All the phones have the same buttons that is the volume rocker, power/lock button and the three capacitive buttons on the front for home, back and menu. The S9 only has a physical home button at the centre. The bodies of the phones are all made of plastic and have the One Glass Solution glass screen. Point to be noted here that Doodle and S9 are Phablets whereas the Xolo Play is a proper phone.

Budget phone

The Doodle has a 5.7” IPS LCD capacitive screen with 1280×720 pixel resolution at 258 ppi. The S9 has a 5.5” IPS LCD capacitive screen with 1280×720 pixel resolution at 267 ppi. The Xolo Play has a 4.7” IPS LCD capacitive screen with 1280×720 pixel resolution at 312 ppi. The Xolo Play having a smaller display has a greater pixel density and hence has a higher screen clarity and sharpness among the three.

The Doodle is powered by a Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 and PowerVR SGX544 GPU which is the same specs as that of its previous flagship, the Canvas 4. The S9 is powered by a 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor and the Xolo Play is powered by a 1.5 GHz Quad core processor with the Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset having a 5th battery saver core and is coupled with ULP GeForce 12 core 500 MHz GPU for all the graphics purposes like gaming. So comparing the hardware, the Xolo Play has the best hardware and the biggest powerhouse among the three.

Storage and Main memory:
All three devices come with 1 GB of RAM which is pretty enough for gaming and multitasking purposes. And for the price at which these phones are available in the market, these specs are actually pretty good. The Doodle and S9 come with 16 GB of on-board memory. Thought the Doodle does not have an expandable memory option, the S9 has a memory card slot upto 32 GB. The Xolo Play on the other hand comes with only 4 GB of on-board storage of which user available memory is lesser than that, but it also comes with a 32 GB expandable card slot, so that is a bit of a relief.

As for the camera, the Xolo Play has the smallest camera at 8MP autofocus capable to shoot 1080p Full HD videos at 30 fps. Its secondary camera is a 2MP capable of good quality images and videos for video calls. The Doodle is the one with the second best camera with a 12MP sensor. It has autofocus as well as HDR. It is also capable of Full HD 1080p videos at 30 fps. The front camera is a 5MP camera capable of high resolution videos for video calling. It also has an amazing camera feature that allows you to capture vertical panorama which is a first. The S9 though has a 13MP camera capable of some really great snaps. The colour reproduction is pretty good and for the price points maybe even the best camera in the market. It is also capable of Full HD 1080p video recording at 30 fps. The video capturing capacity all three phones is equal, but the image quality of the phones can be easily seen from the samples.

Operating system and Features:
Coming to the main thing that runs the entire show. All the three devices run Android 4.1 JellyBean upgradeable to the latest versions as and when the company pushes them for the device. There are no overlays and hence they run stock Android so you will get the exact feel of what the original Android is on these phones. As for the features, all the phones have ranging features among them. The Xolo Play for starters is a phone specifically made for gaming purposes, hence the big GPU. So other than that there is not much in the phone but the gaming features and the great screen.

The Doodle on the other hand is pretty loaded with features which are equivalent to the ones present in the Samsung Galaxy S4. There are the Smart Gestures, Look away to Pause, Pinning facility where you can pin any webpage or video to the homepage and while that continues you can multitask by running other applications in the other half of the screen. Then there is the first ever Blow to Unlock feature where you can blow over the screen to unlock it. It even has a stylus support for greater applications and usability.

The S9 also has some great features like its wonderful screen which can display more colours than its earlier counterparts. It is not as awesomely loaded like the Doodle but it an Android phone, so you can tittle-tattle with your phone as much as you like for whatever you need.

Battery power:
As for the battery which has become like one of the great deciding factor while buying any phone, all three of them are pretty packing in those terms. The Doodle and the S9 both are packing a 2600 mAh battery which is good enough to last 10 hours on 3G networks. The Xolo Play though has a 2000 mAh battery. Considering the small screen it is pretty enough for it and lasts about 11 hours on 3G networks.
We compared the 3 Indian flagships, the Micromax Canvas Doodle, Karbonn Titanium S9 and the Xolo Play across various parameters. All the three phones are pretty much in the balance but they all have their ups and down. So accordingly the decision rests up to you as to which or what type of a phone do you need depending on your usage types. If you are looking for a large screen phone with great features then the Doodle is the one for you. If you are looking for a phone with a big screen, great camera and the works for a cheap cost, then S9 is your bet. But do consider that Karbonn has a lot of issues with after sales services. So it mind end up as a huge risk though. The Xolo Play is the one for you if you want a moderate large screen, high gaming usage and a good build and battery life. So all the three phones are made with certain specific purposes, but if there is to choose a winner among the three, it will be the Micromax A240 Canvas Doodle 2 with its amazing screen, battery, camera and myriad of features that it comes packing with.
