Pros & Cons:
- The price is as cheap as it gets.
- The phone is definitely better than its predecessors, A500 and A500S.
- The dimensions are almost perfect.
- The 4.0 inches display at this cheap a price is almost unbelievable.
- The RAM is not even near to enough for the dual core processor. It’s only 512 MB. The phone will definitely lag.
- There is no auto focus function in the cam.
- The battery time decreases quite quickly.
Obviously a more sensible choice than any of its brothers; XOLO A500 and XOLO A500S. The performance to the price ratio is magnificent as the price is too cheap for a phone with such a great performance. Although there is no auto focus camera, the fixed focus camera is good in performance for the outdoors only in the sunlight. HD videos can both be recorded and played easily without any lag. Our suggestion is, if you are a gamer with a passion for high quality heavy games, this is not for you, otherwise, this is the best phone with the best performance in this price you can get.
