  • Value for Money
  • Good
  • Decently built and looks good
  • Hive UI has plenty of customisation options
  • Good cameras, front camera has flash
  • Straightforward, reliable performance
  • Bad
  • Hive UI can be sluggish at times
  • Screen isn't quite up to the mark for full-HD
  • Notification light in the power switch makes no sense
  • Two separate camera apps make shooting a complicated affair

Competition in the budget smartphone market is heating up quicker than an overclocked processor in a frying pan. The most excitement is happening in the sub-Rs. 15,000 price bracket. Brands such as Xiaomi, Motorola, Yu Televentures, Micromax and a handful of small-name upstarts are battling furiously for your money.

Xolo Black Summary

The Xolo Black is the kind of smartphone you like, but don't necessarily love. It's built well, looks good, performs with simple consistency and offers good value for money. Xolo's own Hive UI powers the phone, and offers plenty of customisation options for users. It has a good camera as well, and gimmicks such as dual-camera, post-refocusing and ChromaFlash might appeal to camera-happy users. It's also one of the few phones that offers flash even at the front, which will sit well with selfie lovers. The Xolo Black is a decent purchase, and worth considering if you're shopping for a sub-Rs. 15,000 smartphone.

  • Waste of Money & chances of getting cheated from service stations due to no spares available.
    Anirudh Tapase (Oct 2, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    The most sad thing is there is no service center near by. After sale service is pathetic. Takes more than a month to get repaired. Staff at service station is rude and uses duplicate parts (my experience at Suraj Enterprises, Pune, Maharashtra) due to unavailability of original spares. My Q700 got damaged within couple of months after changing display & touchscreen. The worst is the support guys are not helpful at all. Please don't buy any Xolo phone in India, The spares are not available too. It is waste of your valuable money. Go for other makes which has max. service stations and spares available easily. No ratting & no recommendation for XOLO mobiles.

  • Not Worth to buy this Brand.. Waste of Money
    Ashutosh Srivastava (Sep 20, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    The phone is not worth of its price. I have used the phone for more than 30 days and following are my observations: 1) Performance is VERY BAD for normal usage.Phone get HANG most of the time despite having 2 GB RAM and Snapdragon Processor.. 2) Rear and front cameras are just OK. DUAL CAMERA is NOT working at all. 3) battery backup is OK if you use with cautions. 4) Phone looks premium that's the only specialty of XOLO BLACK. Back glass is smooth and feels good in hands but is made of VERY LOW QUALITY GLASS getting lots of scratches and smudge despite being made of Gorilla GLASS and Oleophobic Coating. 5) Sound quality is Good. 6) Gets heat up in normal usage like playing games and using whats app facebook and also during charging. 7) HIVE UI still needs to be developed much more. It cannot match the competitors out there 8) No Updates Came yet as they were releasing Android 5.1.1 in August but still there is no update for XOLO BLACK. I Should say that its waste of money. better to buy another brand as so many brands available now in this range with better features and better Quality.
