    4/5 stars

    By Subham Sarkar

    Xolo A500S is the enhanced version of the previous Xolo A500. It is one of the most affordable android phone which has decent performance both on application and gaming.Here's my short review. Build Quality, Design and Form Factor: The build quality is quite impressive at this price point and does not feel like a cheap smartphone, it has got a rubberized matte finish back cover with glossy shiny part on the top.It feels pretty light at 122 grams and the dimensions of the device at 125.16 x 63.37 x 9.31 mm which makes it quite slim.It feels comfortable to hold the phone in the hand. Camera Performance: The rear shooter is 5 MP fixed focus with LED flash.The daylight performance of the rear camera is good enough considering the price point and low light photography is not bad but average. The front camera is VGA and don’t expect much from it apart from average quality of video chat.However , the LED Flash is weak enough to keep you away from photography in the dark.You can record HD (720p) videos. The output is good enough considering the price tag. You can play full HD videos (1080p) using the MX player(a third party app). Display, Memory,OS and Battery Backup: The display is 4 inch TFT capacitive with 480 x 800 pixels resolution,producing around ~233 ppi pixel density.Its not that bad and believe me,the color production is quite good.The viewing angles are okay sidewise but bad when viewed from the upper or lower side.When under the sun,one has to set the brightness to maximum to have a good view.There are accelerometer, light and proximity sensors.The handset comes with 512 MB RAM of which 468 MB is available(free) and of the 4GB internal storage 1.27 GB is assigned for apps and another 1.27 GB as phone storage. Micro SD card of up to 32 GB is supported. You can install apps on external storage. OTG is not supported.It runs on Android 4.2.2 OS out of the box. Battery: The battery is of 1400 mAh capacity with over 7 hours of talktime.The handset comes pre-loaded with XOLO Power app for optimal battery performance.With moderate usage the handset should last for over a day on a full battery charge. Using a third party app such as the Juice Defender Ultimate will increase the battery life dramatically. Performance: It's a dual SIM handset powered by 1.3GHz dual core processor (Cortex A7) MT6572W coupled with Mali 400 MP GPU. The GPU seems powerful.It can handle quite heavy games easily. Others: Sound loudness is decent.Not that much loud.3G,Wi-Fi and Bluetooth worked well.The wifi works well too. Verdict: It's definitely one of the best in this price range.The performance is good.Fixed focus camera is good when used outdoor.It can record HD videos and play full HD videos.Cannot really recommend this for gaming users but some heavy games are playable which is good enough.If you have a tight budget and looking for a handset with premium look, is light weight, with decent performance, then look no further..this is the one. Rating: 4/5.

    Write your review here (required) Dear Sir/Madam Regarding the Design and back cover of the mobile is so dangerous to get damaged by virtue of its design, even sweat can enter into the mobile through cover and get damaged. After getting damaged if given to service center in warranty, xolo service center will simply say that you have dipped into water thats why damage occured. I recommend not to buy a single phone of XOLO,if they dont give the services than there is no use of purchasing xolo Mobiles. my email is tsn1969@gmail.comand mobile no is 07382611562, you can cal me for details. regards i am satyanarayan victim of XOLO service center Consider : Why did you choose this rating ? What did you like or dislike? Who would you recommend this product to?

    4/5 stars

    By Akshay Khale

    If you are looking for a budget smartphone with a bunch of features then you should consider this smartphone. Xolo A 500S comes with latest Android 4.2.2(Jelly Bean) with front and rear camera with flash The phone is not that fast but its fast enough to take real gaming experience. The phone is having some issue related to its microphone but those issues can be resolved easily. This phone comes in 4 different colors. The parent company of xolo is Lava which is an Indian mobile manufacturer launching awesome phones like this one. If you want to style up yourself with a smart gadget showing great performance then this is the best choice for you !!!

    2/5 stars

    By Niteen Kumbhojkar

    This is fair quality phone...But misleading specs.. 1. Camera is not even VGA..but say as 5 megapixels....this is just a cheating 2. The battery is the weakest...not even 6 hours standby in 2G....forget days. Other wise works well
