Good Hardware Deigns @low price...
By Swapnil Teltumbale | 20 May 2014
I purchased this phone in stunning Black from another marketplace & got it delivered on February 15. From design & hardware perspective, this phone is a class leader at it's price in most aspects. But Xolo has ruined the Android experience. Design & Hardware Pros : Overall the phone feels to be of a much higher price range * Zero Panel Gaps. Brilliant non joint smooth metal casing between front & rear panels. * Stunning chrome finish embossing of the logo on the rear. Premium colour finishing of the front & rear panels. * Only phone at this budget with Dual SIM 3G support which is not even found in Sony Xperia C or Moto G. Feature not mentioned in actual specifications, found in the Network settings on the phone. * Clever integration of Earpiece(top) & mic(bottom) with dual front speakers, closing hard to clean large dust accumulation locations. * Better Camera & Bright LED : LED compared with A500s illuminates well at about 3m as a functional emergency torch in case of a night power outage. Compared with A500S a shot in pitch dark *INTERIORS* does a fair capture. Design & Hardware Cons : Some slight niggles * Confusing fragile Sim 1 Mini, Sim 2 Micro & Micro SD slots integrated together, without a push to release option making it hard to release sim cards. * No Magnetometer which is needed for navigation. (Generally not found in this price range. Xolo missed an ace) * No back lighting of hard touch buttons. Xolo has fudged up with the stock Android build of A500S (version 4.2.2) in a very disgusting manner for this phone, copying Samsung (and indirectly Apple) interface. The settings screen is all messed up, & if you are used to stock android & never used crap Samsung interface, then you will feel miserable. It could easily run stock Android 4.3.1, giving Xolo another ace at this price point but instead they have goofed up by doing useless customizations. Software Cons : (No software Pros, it is so bad) * You can't sort apps on the installed apps in the menu. You can do a custom ordering on them, but once you install a new app, the custom ordering will be lost leaving you frustrated with all the effort you put. * Removed option to disable incoming calls from contacts you want to block. Forced to install an app for this. * Cant use Google Now voice calling as there is no way to choose a default sim out of the two sims & thus each time you use Google Now to call/ text, eventually you will have to use touch again to choose the sim to use. * Cant remove multiple calls or messages threads simultaneously. You have to delete each separately or delete all. No option to do multi select like stock Android. * Cant see multiple numbers of a contact when using T9 smart typing to find name. Only first number is callable.You have to go to contacts listing to choose other numbers. As mentioned in the next point even that is screwed. * If you use custom contacts display option from Android, the Xolo customizations are a bummer. I like to keep only a few contacts displayable for WhatsApp on my phone, as I don't want to cram my WhatsApp list with the large amount of numbers I have. You can still choose custom contacts listing from different accounts, but what happens is that, now when you want to call one of the non displayed Google contacts with multiple phone numbers as mentioned above, they are not searchable by typing any more. So you have to enable them for listing, just for that brief period of time you want to call them infrequently. * Removed roaming indicator from notification bar, thus leading to confusion with sim identification. Xolo has removed the option to rename or color code the sims present in stock Android, instead adding a tiny icon to identify the sim for the incoming call. The sim cards just register with the name of the service provider by default & that can't be changed. * Data usage monitor has been completely removed. Navigation bar data usage indicator is no longer linked to the active data sim. You have to double check the data sim being used with no direct indicator present. * The Xolo Power App just reads stock Android interface defaults , which have been disabled from Settings, & repackaged as bloatware. Option to see simple things like Battery % on navigation bar have been removed & instead the app has to be fired up to see the exact battery level each time. Xolo has ruined the basic phone features of Dual Sim Call/SMS completely. These can possibly be recuperated by installing additional apps, but then why would you want to drain your battery with those. Overall, because of the immensely superior design & hardware at such a low price range, I would like to give 4 stars
