We all expected Micromax to provide MT6589T chipset with Micromax Canvas 4, but that did not happen. Few months later many manufactures lined up their MT6589T Full HD display devices and these included phones like Micromax Canvas Turbo, Gionee Elife E6, Intex Aqua i7, Zen Ultrafone Amaze FHD and Karbonn Titanium X. Xolo has now launched its version of MT6589T powered device with Full HD display. Let’s see what makes Xolo Q3000 better and what makes it stand apart from the crowd.


Camera and Internal Storage

The camera features in Xolo Q3000 are more or less similar to what we have seen before. The autofocus 13 MP camera at the back employs a BSI 2 sensor and thus will expectedly give better low light performance. The secondary camera has a 5 MP BSI sensor. 13 / 5 MP combination is something which we have seen many times before and the camera clarity works fine in good lighting and average in low light condition.

Internal storage in Xolo Q3000 is 16 GB and can be further extended to 32 GB using MicroSD card. The 16 GB internal storage is something we like in this device. It is about time Domestic manufacture’s give onboard storage its due importance.

Processor and Battery

The Xolo Q3000 packs MT6589T SoC with 1.5 GHz quad core processor and Power VR SGX544 MP GPU. The chipset is backed by 2 GB of RAM and will work fine for most general purpose operations. Based on our experience with previous MT6589T devices, this phone can’t handle the Full HD resolution very effectively while engaging in graphic intensive gaming.

The highlighted feature of this smartphone is its 4000 mAh battery. Other domestic branded phones with Full HD resolution had a major limitation in the form of paltry 2000 mAh battery. Xolo claims that Xolo Q3000 will give you 21 hours of talk time and 634 hours of standby time on 3G which is pretty amazing.

Display and Feature

The Display of this phone is 5.7 inches in size, ans sports 1080p full HD resolution. The IPS LCD display will give you pixel density of 386 pixels per inches. The colossal display will be well suited to those who love watching videos and reading on their smartphone screens.

Xolo Q3000 supports dual SIM functionality and runs on Android 4.2 jelly bean operating system. The phone comes with USB OTG which lets you connect flash drive, joy stick and other peripherals to your smartphone.

Looks and Connectivity

The Xolo Q3000 is 8.9 mm thick and comes is black and white colors. The looks and body design seem pretty regular and uninteresting as compared to competition which includes phones like Micromax Canvas Turbo and Gionee Elife E6 which fair much higher in this department. The Connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB OTG and GPS.


Xolo Q3000 will compete with other full HD MT6589T devices like Micromax Canvas Turbo, Gionee Elife E6 and Intex Aqua i7. It will also compete with other phablets like Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 and Xolo’s own Xolo Q2000.

If you don’t mind the domestic branded devices, this phone packs admirable specifications for a large sized Phablet. The device would have been even more appealing if Xolo had provided with a capacitive stylus to take advantage of the large sized display. You will also get a flipcover and USB OTG cable inside the box. If buying a large screen Phablet with full HD display is on your priority list, Xolo Q3000 is the phone for you.

  1. What about reliability ,performance and very important the service support. I am planning to buy and the specs appear good.

    I read somewhere the service support is very poor.

    Please suggest. My budget is 15K but can stretch a bit. Any suggestions on LENOVA P780 or Lumia720 .

    • Hi Prasad
      in buying domestic manufactured devices their is a trade-off between after sales support and features that you get. Personally the devices i have used have worked well so far. but there are several complaints. Lenovo P780 and Lumia 720 are very good phones. You can also read http://goo.gl/5mIzZM to help you make up your mind.

    • if u want double sim phone, then go for lenovo, its the best mid range phone can buy for 16-17K, among unless u r hardcore person who wants nothing less than a branded phone like nokia, samsung, etc.

      i have used p780 for 2 months, and am pretty satisfied with it, built quality, battery back are all very impressive and makes it a must buy
