Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Well-built and sturdy
  • Looks nice with a textured back panel
  • Decent HD display with good viewing angles (although sunlight legibility could have been better)
  • Near stock Android interface with a few added features from Xolo like smart awake, quick camera launch, and smart view
  • Decent performance for day-to-day tasks - works well as long as you use it for basic things such as email, social networking, multimedia and calling
  • Decent rear camera - performs quite well, especially in daylight
  • Good front camera - the only one in this price bracket to offer a dual LED flash for the front camera - generally takes above average selfies
  • Supports both 4G and VoLTE, which is uncommon in this price range
  • Best in class design and build quality
  • Matte finish plastic on the back and Gorilla Glass on the front
  • Good ergonomics
  • Good display - sharp, crisp, and has good color reproduction
  • CyanogenMod OS is close to stock Android, and adds useful features and customizability
  • Decent speed/performance
  • Good call quality
  • Very good audio quality
  • Good video playback
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Decent battery life
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • The screen, though pretty good, is a fingerprint magnet and requires constant cleaning
  • Rear camera images in low light have plenty of noise (although this is pretty much to be expected in this price range)
  • Mediocre battery life - with 4G connectivity and mixed use of calling and camera, the phone tends to run out of battery by the evening — you will need a top-up sometime in the middle of the day to make it through
  • Preloaded with a number of bloatware apps
  • Although basic tasks are fine, but the 1GB RAM feels limiting when taxed with heavy apps/multitasking - it gets overwhelmed quickly, leading to frequent slowdowns and stutters - you will need to keep closing background apps to keep the phone running smoothly
  • With the limited hardware, gaming capability is obviously limited to basic games only
  • Average camera
