Xolo Q1200 Review
XOLO Q1200 is a decent performer at a budget price of Rs.11672. This device brings you a stylish design and bit of good features making your day to day job a lot easier. Today Smartphone’s are quiet hyped in the market. I had seen many manufacturers selling phones that promise to be best but I am not quite sure that they are capable of giving you a good output. You must always check out the hardware to find out the maximum power of device.
Many entry level phones are hyped and sold at cheap price and after buying you are not happy. But if you go with XOLO Q1200 then you will surely get something you are looking for. A budget device that brings you a lot of high value features with gesture controls. It has some nice software enhancements that make the phone an easy to use device. It has a good body. Instead of regular plastic body the device comes with a Unibody Metallic Design.
The battery is locked on the same and it has dual speakers so that you can get amazing audio. To increase the around quality XOLO Q1200 supports Dolby Digital Sound Technology. You can enjoy your favorite audio and videos on the same. It is a phablet with 5-inch Big HD IPS Display. To keep the screen secured from scratches and damage it has a damage resistant corning gorilla glass 3 protection. So you can see the phone has a mix feature of durable design and good body. It runs on the Android v4.2 Jelly Bean operating system. But Xolo promise that you can upgrade it to Android v4.4 KitKat operating system.
For performance it is powered by a 1.3 GHz Quad Core Processor. This allows you a very fast response time and good multitasking output. For video games the device hold a 500 MHz Mali400-MP2 GPU and 1GB RAM. I found it overall a amazing product. At a cheap price Xolo has tried to locate the device with many high end features which is hard to find other budget phones. Below is detailed specification that put more highlight on the device and then will check it in more detail.

Design and Packaging:
XOLO Q1200 has a good design. I was expecting a regular plastic finish on the same but this is not the story. It has a good body that also looks durable. That does not means it is waterproof. By premium design I mean the device looks to be packed in a metallic back panel. While most of the device in the market uses a plastic back panel. And there is a very sleek frame that also makes it thin and less bulky.
The phone is as slim as the iPhone. The phone fits well in your hand. You will not realize the weight. At some point if you add a cover you might feel it bulky. That is because of the metallic cover which makes it heavy to handle. This is not a negative point. Xolo Q1200 does not have as removable back cover. The battery is sealed inside. It is right to say that Xolo Q1200 has the best body design compare to a few other smart phones in the market that fail at the same price range.
The power key is on the left with volume rocker. And also there is a tray holds micro-sim card and microSD card both. These are not separate. You can access them easily from the right. The key location is easily accessible. At the backside lies a 8MP with dual-LED flash so that you can take brighter photos. The camera comes with Sony’s Exmor R Sensor that can make your photography a lot better. And there are two speakers also. The phone has a good body.
Xolo has released Android 4.4 Kitkat update for Xolo Q1200. You can download the OTA package from official website.
