We talked about the new phone by Gionee Dream D1 and I mentioned that the gadget was certainly over priced as per its reputation in the Indian smartphone market. Today we will talk about another smartphone named Xolo Q800 which has been launched in the clear competition of Micromax Canvas HD as most of the specifications of this phone are similar to it, apart from this if the specs are compared with Gionee Dream D1 then again the specs are almost similar but the price difference is of around 5k which is huge.
Xolo Q800 Specifications and Key Features
This phone comes with quad core processor of 1.2 GHz with Cortex A-7 architecture which is accompanied by 1GB RAM and the GPU used here is the PowerVR SGX544 which is decent for medium level gaming. The screen is of 4.5 inches with qHD display of 960×450 pixels of resolution which is 1080 HD display, it also supports multi-touch upto 5 points on the screen at a time. The phone uses latest jellybeans to be operated on and the camera is again 8MP which is supported by BIS sensor making it really easy for the phone to capture images in the low-light, though you will also see the flash support for the same. The front or the secondary camera is of 1MP which is VGA and provided mainly for the video chatting purpose.
When compared with Micromax HD then also all the specs are almost the same taking processor, GPU, RAM and camera into consideration with only exception of 1MP front camera. When compared with Gionee Dream D1 then again it has the same specs, then only difference in the price. Video recording done the primary camera is the 720p.
