Another day, another Chinese smartphone maker enters India. This time, it's a joint venture between Qihoo 360 Technologies and the handset maker Coolpad, who have formed the brand QiKU. Its debut offering, the Q Terra, is yet another "flagship killer", if you will, but comes with a unique set of features which should help it stand on its own feet. Priced similarly to the Moto X Play (Review), let's see if the company's debut offering in India has what it takes to get noticed.

QiKU Q Terra Summary

The QiKU Q Terra is a new entrant in the mid-range smartphone segment but it doesn’t take long to figure out this phone's unique features. The powerful Snapdragon 808 makes 4K video recording and viewing possible on a phone in this price segment. Then there’s the premium-looking all-metal build and sharp full-HD display. The Q Terra also has a very unique dual 13-megapixel camera setup that manages crisp images in daylight and low-light shooting conditions. Battery life is another area where the phone really excels. There’s a fingerprint sensor which does its job well and a fully-featured custom OS with useful bundled applications. At its offer price of Rs 19,999, the Q Terra is currently one of the best handsets - if you can live with the rather large size.

  • Horrible after sales service
    Utkarsh Vanjare (Aug 29, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    I had purchased this phone after reading the impressive reviews as well as about their 'extensive' aftersales service network. Sometime back the screen of my phone broke in an accident and to my shock 4 service centres out of total 5 centres around Mumbai were not reachable/available. One centre in In Dadar charged 10,000/- for the screen whereas the iphone screen is also available much easily and at a much cheaper price. It was definitely a lesson about not buying a product from unreliable brands as they tend to fleece you in future. The 'products lifetime price' which includes the initial+usage/repair/service cost should be given due consideration. Suggest everyone to look at the product in a holistically and then take a decision.

  • Very happy with the product.
    Narendran Gopalakrishnan (Jan 18, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    This is my first smartphone - coached into buying it by NDTV Profit :) But I am glad to say it didn't disappoint. Delivery was prompt. QiKU packaging was brilliant. The phone as well. Have tested most features by now (except for headphones.) Only thing I could've done better is the removal of the QiKU logo on the screen guard (it should be removed as it is in the face.) I used kerosene and cotton and removed it, but unfortunately managed to somewhat scratch the guard as well. Maybe I didn't look for guidelines on how to do it correctly, or maybe the screen guards should not have a logo at all!

  • No guidance where and how to get service
    RAJESH BANSAL (Sep 22, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    I bought Qiku Q terra in Jan 16 at launch time. So far, its performance has been satisfactory. However, of late, the quality of video replay has deteriorated badly. Unable to understand how to resolve this. No information where and how to get the advice on how/where to get servicing done even under warranty.

  • No service available for this phone after purchasing!!!....
    amol deshpande (Aug 20, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    Hi All, I had purchased qiku mobile 2 years ago, quality of phone is the best and best part is camera of that phone, but no other features are impressive. Now a glass of my mobile phone is broken I'm looking for a service center, but no service center is available and no parts are easily available like screen guard, back cover, mobile screen. Even re-seller don't' know about this brand. Please avoid it until the proper services are not available.
