Xolo X1000 is the successor to the X900 in the sense that both of these phones have Intel processor in their phones. It has been priced at 19999 INR which is really high when all these Chinese phones are considered, We hope this phone will justify its price and we will let you know in our detailed review once we get the device. X900 was released with 1.6 GHz of Intel Atom Processor with HT technology and this time it is 2GHz with the same technology.
Now when compared with the predecessor the phone has almost all the same features when talking about the camera, both of them have the camera with burst mode as their feature, with an exception that now BSI sensor has been added in the phone making it easier for the phones for capture the images in low light condition.
Xolo X900 did had the option to extend the memory but it had 16GB as the internal memory and this time 8Gb is the internal memory and it can be extended up to 32GB (this change does not bother much 16GB is also enough in most of the cases). The camera in X1000 is now capable of recording HD videos with 1080p at 30 @fps and we will let you know about the photo and video quality in our detailed review.
X900 had Gingerbread but it was upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich and it also had 1GB and these 2 features remain constant on this phone making it little bit uncomfortable when you take a look at the margin of 6000 INR. The OS used now is Ice Cream Sandwich (don’t whether it is upgradable or not as nothing has been mentioned by Lava on this).
The phone seems to be good in design and the branding of Intel Logo at the back panel of the phone makes it even better. Battery has been improved by 440 mAh by 30 percent approximately but I cannot see much improvement in the talk-time or the standby time, the reason being the powerful processor used this time. This time 1900 mAh battery has been used offering 9.5 hours of standby time on 3G and 5 hours of on 2G. The screen size is of 4.7 inches with HD 1280 x 720 pixels display with sharp TFT LCD with 314 Pixel Per Inch which gives a nice display which is comparable to the iPhone 5 display and on the other hand much better than Xolo 900.

Lava Xolo X1000 Hands On Photos
Xolo X1000 will face competition from Gionee Dream D1 and Galaxy Grand Duos as these phones falls in the same price segment with decent hardware specs. X1000 outstands Xolo Q800 in the specs but the hardware specs offered by this phone is at a very reasonable rates. Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos which also offers everything as offered by Xolo X1000, moreover it is Samsung which has much better reputation in smartphone market as compared to Lava. Comparing it with galaxy grand which has larger screen size, decent display type although lower in resolution but higher battery backup than X1000 and even the OS version is also Jellybean takes a lead here.
