Xolo launched yet another Android smartphone device in the country. This time it is a phablet named Xolo Q2500 PocketPad that comes with 6 inch display and offers 720 p HD resolution. The phone is priced Rs. 14,999.
Xolo Q2500 has got an extra large battery. Since the device features a large display an extra big battery is required to keep it working for a day or so. It comes with a 3000 mAh battery that offers up to 600 hours standby and up to 40 hours talk time on 2G.
The specifications of this device is similar to most of the mid range devices found in the market, not much of a surprise here. It is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad core processor along with 1 GB of RAM. MediaTek MT 6582 is the Chipset used, 500 MHz, Mali 400 – MP2 is the GPU.
The phone has dimensions ranging 136 x 64.6 x 8.9 mm, weight is no where mentioned. We expect it to be slightly on the higher side because of the larger battery and bigger display. At 8.9 mm the device is slim by any standards.
Xolo Q2500 has got an 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera. The rear camera is capable of recording full HD videos. Scene detection & tuning, auto-focus, High Dynamic Range (HDR), Low Light enhancement, Face recognition (For focussing as well as in Gallery), Vertical & Horizontal Panorama capture and Geo tagging are the other features in this phone.
The phone comes with all regular connectivity features that we normally find in an Android device. It comes with WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth V4.0, USB V2.0 with USB OTG support and GPS with assited-GPS. Sensors in Xolo Q2500 are Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Proximity sensor.
This is a dual SIM smart device ideal for Indian market. It supports GSM: 900/1800 and WCDMA:2100 network bands. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is the OS used, the company listing says that it can be updated to Android 4.4 Kitkat. So the buyers can expect and OTA update later. But for the moment the phone runs Android OS version 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
There are not many devices with 6 inch display in Indian Market. So this device has no direct threat from a competition. For the price range of Rs 14, 999 the device will have to compete with the popular choice phone Motorola Moto G, which is priced even lesser the 16 GB model.
