Lava Xolo Q800 Full Review

Q800 has the great capability to play the Full HD videos with no lags while the handset support the famous video codecs which can be extended by installing different players from Play store. The extra option of 3D video and 3D Audio gives the more realistic view and seemed that you are inside that movie.

XOLO has packed Q80 with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, which has the great user interface, since most of the things were Stock of OS like Widgets and Home screen while you can consider the icons are different and you got the very different Notification area with the Dual SIM icons present. The app launcher and the 6 Home Screen seemed very good with buttery smooth performance and the sensitivity was seemed like as High-end device.

Lava Xolo Q800 Review


Seeing the over-all performance and quality of the device we have now concluded that it among best Handsets and sits best at the price while with the few competitors like Canvas HD it holds it value by showing its exceptional performance and best in all quality.
Hardware as well as Software of XOLO Q800 makes the rocks to Android Platform. And the era is not so far where you can’t recognize between a Smartphone and a PC. So, if you are going to have a new smartphone belonging to mid-range so get it in your opinion and then choose your device.
Thanks you for reading our review on XOLO Q800, and stay tuned for latest updates.

  • Joel

    Awesome review… Just cleared all my doubts about this device… :)

  • annonymous

    what about 254 ppi resolution is it good enough for reading
    If so why apple,google nexus prefers 312 ppi

    • TechnoDify

      If you are having more ppi in your device display then you will get more clear and hd display.

      • prakash

        u cant find a difference between 254 ppi & 312 ppi with ur naked eye on a 4.5 inch screen..! Both looks same, eventhough its technically different.,

    bought it awsome mobile guys value 4 the money

  • krishna

    Hi thanks for the usefull review. wat about the battery … In most of the reviews i found that Xolo mobiles having heating issue in moderate usage & while charging. Could u plz giv us feedback on this.

    • TechnoDify

      The heating issues weer on the XOLO device powered by Intel chipset, but this time isssue is not found with this Quad-band processor

      • krishna

        Hi Technodify, Thanks for your responce . Can u please suggest me upon the phone which i have to go > mY choices are Lenovo P770 and Xolo Q800.

  • Bonoroxy

    I am from Cochin. I purchased Xolo Q800 thru mirchimart.com. I placed the order on 18th of March 2013 and recieved it on 21st March 2013. The vendor was quick to deliver and I appreciate them.

    After opening the box, the phone was not switching on. I called the Xolo helpline and they told me to charge the batter for one hour. After one hour I tried to switch it on and again it was not working. After many trouble shooting techniques, the helpline told me to send the defective phone without any accessories to their Bangalore service centre. I called the LAVA service centre at Cochin, but they replied that they have not started servicing Xolo brands in Cochin so has to send it back to the company.

    XOLO arranged a pickup thru FedEx. On 22nd March 2013 FedEx picked up the phone and it was delivered to the Bangalore service centre on 25th March 2013.

    On 26th March 2013, I called Xolo helpline and they told me that the phone s being repaired. I told them that I had recived the phone in a dead condition and ideally they should replace it instead of repairing. But the helpline said that Xolo can only repair the phone and cannot replace. They also informed me that it will be repaired within 48 hours and returned.

    Now I feel that it was a great blunder to buy a Xolo brand who has no quality check and a brand who doesnt have a proper after sales network. Even when I recieved their phone ‘dead’, I am not getting a replacement. If I had bought a phone from a local store, I could have checked the phone condition before payment. Also I suggest you to go for a branded phone company as they have their service centre network well laid out. Moreover please try to call the helpline of Xolo and you would be very lucky if you can completly understand what the helpline tries to tell you. Seems they are also clueless on how to handle a query.

    • TechnoDify

      Ya! That is the main problem. They are not having well arranged Service Centers.

    • srinivas

      Thanks, you saved me from a likely disaster. I am not rich and I cannot afford to make a wrong decision. I’ll go for a reputed brand even if it is expensive.

    • Sagar

      hi bonoxory, me too from kerala. DId you received your phone back ? Because my xolo Q700 is also not working. should i send it to the xolo service center ?

    • Ritu


      Could you please give me the contact number for the Bangalore service centre that u r talking about?
      Is it a Lava service centre or Xolo?

      I got a similar problem and a not getting any response from Xolo care through Phone/SMS or email.

    • Vaibhav

      1. You should have returned the phone to the seller instead of contacting Xolo.
      2. Any thing purchased online can be dead on arrival.
      3. Xolo offered you a good service by picking up the phone from your residence for service, Nokia, Samsung or Sony would not have done it.

      • amar nath.r

        ya, my xolo q800 mobile is dead.what should i do for that?

  • krishna

    Hi Thanks for your responce, Actually iam having a lilbit confusion upon selection of mobile which i hav to purchase , can u please help me in this … my options are Lenovo P770 and Xolo Q800

    • TechnoDify

      Go with XOlO Q800 because it is quad-core device so that you get the twice fast performance than Lenovo P770 which has the Dual-core Cortex A9 processor and don’t forget the 5MP camera while the XOLO has the 8MP camera, so you got more productivity in XOLO Q800, go with it blindly.

      • likith

        sir iam facing an issue…with this mobile…..i got rectified my bluetooth….but now new problm arasied….when i shoot video in my mobile and play it ill get green or pink lines in side borders wat to do???please replay fast

        • Varun

  • nakti

    which smartphone is best at overall??
    my option ius xolo x1000 or xolo q800 or xolo x900

    • TechnoDify

      I think X1000 will be good. Because it’s performance is very good.

      • prakash

        Xolo q800- value for money

  • Anil


    I have ordered it from flipkart after seeing the review here – http://www.techjunction.in/2013/03/xolo-q800-unboxing-and-review.html

    Hope I did the right thing ?

  • Jeetesh Bobbal

    Bought the Xolo Q800 for Rs. 12500 on its launch day from Mumbai.

    The following problem have come to my notice:-

    1. The Apps like Skype (Front Camera), Google Goggles (Back Camera) & Camscanner (Free) (Back Camera), when ever used the Camera quality becomes dull (Dark/Low Brightness) & when ever Normally used, the Front/Back Camera functions properly. Why?

    2. Heating Issue noticed while Video Recording, Multi-Tasking, Gaming, Net Browsing & Charging.

    3. The phone’s “Phone” App (phone inbuilt/default dailer) & “Contacts” App (inbuilt/default Contact/phonebook) LAGs after sometime of use. I am using it as my main phone so have around 1200+ contacts, but yet being an Android and Inbuilt Memory kept empty (Installed all Apps to a 32 Gb class 4 card – but the issue was before the memory card also when no Apps where installed.)

    4. The 2G data connectivity works slow (Tried Different Carriers and they worked fine on cell phones of other companies but slow on Xolo Q800)

    5. The Charger gets Very Very Hot.

    If anyone is going through the same Problems, Please Reply (in detail please)


    If anyone is having Any Solutions to the above said Problems, Please Reply (in detail please)

    Thank you.

    • prakash

      Mr.Jeetesh Bobbal

      1. The dull appearance happens with few other phones, its common.

      2. All android phones get heated up, not an issue..

      3. Atleast it remembers all ur 1200+ contacts, other phones would have died..lol :D

      4. what do u expect? come on..it takes time to load pages due to larger screen & consumes more data. Its well known..

      5. Let things get heated up, its not gonna make any fire accident. All electric products gets heated up after some usage.

    • Raveesh

      hi Jeetesh,

      I am facing the same problem whilr making video calls via skype. Did you find any solution to increase the brightness?

      • Varun

        Sit in a brighter place where ligh is more

        • LOKESHA H

          Its is problem with the software. If you install custom ROMs then this problem will be solved. I think xolo needs to update its software to solve these problems.

  • Sunny

    I agree with what Jeetesh said… Charger gets really very hot…

  • Utsav

    Which One Is Better MMX Canvas HD A116 or Xolo Q800….???

  • prakash

    xolo q800 is better than canvas HD

  • Stan

    do they have service centres in mumbai ??

  • http://www.facebook.com/binny.thomas.92 Binny Thomas

    I had brought the phone few days back, the price was 12,499. Pretty good for the price. Beware dont buy it online(unless its flipkart). Try getting the address from xolo site and purchase it der. I checked all the features b4 getting i have been using it for 5 days now.

    Battery backup: awsme when compared to other phones: even samsung

    Camera : Pretty good, it delivers what it is promising, only problem is while video chatting the clarity decreases for some reason need to check the setting i suppose.

    Customercare: heard they support good neva tried it yet. Xolo Care :)

    The processor is too good no lag. while working or while playing games.

    phone call clarity is good both front and rear.

    checked the following game:
    subway surf
    temple run 2
    FL commando

    all works wid out any lag.

    regarding the internal memory, its jus 1gb but use a class 10 SD card of 16gb and ur all set. ur internal memory would be free.

    At beginning my charger use to heatup now i dont face that issue, nor does my phone. a slight heat would be emitted watsoeva its a smartphone that too andy!! so no issues.

    it has face recognition for logging in , nothing great it works ok, but at times it logs in if ur frend has the same face structure.

    Overall totally a good phone for the price. never would u regret this buy.

    Couldnot find a place where i could get a case for this. Please do let me know if any one of you do so. (suggestions please)

    call me for queries

    • @bhi

      hi piyush..as about the downloading of temple run u r saying its because of internet speed..me too having the same fone bt it takes only 15-20 mins for both temple run 1 and 2..n m still not faced any kind of lag or other probs in this fone go on buddy it work smooth..!!

  • Rakesh

    Very good phone at this price. All features stuffed properly. Highly recommended above MMX and Samsung Grand

  • Anil

    I Bought one Xolo Q800 from a store here in Bangalore on 22nd March. From April 11th onwards, My hand set was having a problem, that It sleeps to death. I have to open back cover, remove the battery, replace it and switch on. This happens once a day or some times 2 – 4 times a day. I sent SMS through the app in mobile. There was no response for 2 days, then I sent a mail, again no response for a day. Then I called the call center and told this issue. They arranged for a pickup the next day and delivered back the mobile on 7th day. And it is about 4 days, now the problem is also not there. I can see that the IMEI is not changed but Blue tooth and WIFI MAC numbers are changed. That means internally some boards are changed.

    But still The support was good compared to Samsung, which happened to my friend for a Samsung S2 with the same problem, which started from the third day of purchase.

    He got a cheque of whole amount after 3 months and big fight.

    The dis-advantages I see in this mobile is that the accessories are not available, like Snap in case or Jelly case or Leather flap cover to protect this.

    Otherwise value for money. No disappointment for buyers.

    • TechnoDify

      Thanks for sharing your views Anil. It will surely help for those who are planning to buy this smartphone.

  • Yash Agarwal

    I want to know about the company Xolo , is it a brand to rely upon.
    i want to buy this xolo q800 but the only issue is about the company.
    Further more I want to know
    1. hows there service after sales.
    2. will they reply positively if there is defect in product.
    3. do they provide doorstep repair service.

    • ujjwal

      well, the brand is as far as i know of intel…the one whch makes processors for pcs and lappys…so, may be it is a reliable brad

      • nsp

        Xolo is a subsidiary of Lava Mobiles, India. Its has a partnership with intel to produce a few android phones. Its in no other way related to intel.

    • sumesh

      all indian companies are only distributers of chinese products. we the indians are only consumers. though our youth are able to create some animation movies and software they are not producing mobiles. micromax, xolo, all are chinese products. you can check the box. it has been printed there.then the question of popularity of a phone raised the reputation of the company. like micromax’s canvas hd a 116 has created history. it is working smoothly also. i have used that phone for a few days. the touch is very smooth. and as thought there isn’t much difference between a 5 inch 4.5 inch phone. after purchase i regrett to miss the canvas hd.xolo takes 25 seconds to boot up while canvs hd takes only 10 secs.both used the same processor,rom and ram, since we could not afford to purchase samsang galxy s4 like pieces , these companies are taxing us by selling under valued pieces. here and there a few models, come as true for value.

      • TechnoDify

        That’s 100% true bro….:)

      • Sanath Chavan

        And indians should remove it from their mind that not every chinese product is bad :P !

    nice to see the real users are commenting here. in many sites people are commenting without using the mobile set. their remarks will be on the specifications as seen on the internet. but here it seems is different. i also made a long research on the availalble informations on the net. on youtube also there are some reviews of course on the first impressions. based upon that i have purchased the set today. i mainly wanted to purchase a four plus inch set not the five inch. the micromax hd a 116 is really a good set but it is bigger than xolo and the display resolution is also larger so it will consume more power from the battery . thatis why i have seleced this one. both are using the same cpu,have the same camera resln, qand in xolo the baqttery is 100 unit more these are the things which lead me to the selection of this mobile xolo 800q.i will be commenting soon on the real performance.

    i have purchased xolo800q. how to create a playlist in music folder? i am not able to find one there. mm hd a116 is very good in this sense that it allows to create playlist while on play a track. we rename the playlist also. anybody please help.

      use PowerAMP Player @ 63Rs only world’s best music player..

  • sumesh

    is there a music player other than the stock player in xolo 800q through which i can create playlist and add songs to it while it is playing.? thanks. i have put 32 gb class 10 sd card and it works.

  • sumesh

    some say that the chipset in xolo 00q has recently been changed to mediatek 6589M instead of 6589. my box entries shows that mediatek 6589 is inside. how can i check it?

    • Rahul

      yeah…they have downgraded the chipset…. to cut d price,i guess
      ‘coz d price has fallen 2k down
      yu can check it by seein ur video recordin….
      6589 can do upto 1080p weras 6589 m can do oly upto 720p

    After reading all the reviews over the internet, I decided to go for xolo q800. Anyone facing problems other than heating issue Please comment below. Performance issues, wifi, responsiveness etc have pointed out by the users. Overview regarding the common issues?

  • Prakash


    After a long research, I’ve narrowed down 2 handsets.

    Canvas 2 plus A110q and Xolo Q800..

    Seems both are having similar hardware, so couldn’t make the decision. So please suggest me which one is a good buy. I will use it for watching videos and camera. Not a hardcore gamer. This is my 1st smart phone.

    Thank you in advance :)

    • TechnoDify

      If you want to buy it for watching videos and camera, then I will suggest you to go with Xolo Q800 as it has more better display screen and camera quality then Micromax A110Q.

      • Prakash

        Thanks for the quick reply and sharing your opinion :)

  • Bharat Thapa

    It’s an awesome phone for its price tag and its class. I had the mt5689m-w model and that too wasnt that bad, the mt5689 is a way better model though.

    It’s performance and camera quality is awesome(especially in dark).
    Sound is also isnt bad, it give you decent sound with a decent pinch of bass, however it’s advisable if you are a music lover than go for better earplugs(sound quality with its packed earplugs dont come that bad though)

    • Ram Soundhar

      Which earphone will be suitable for Q800 with in price range <500. pls mail me @ ramsoundhar@gmail.com

  • srinivasan

    • TechnoDify

      Ya! It supports all 3.5mm based earphones or headphones.

  • Laxminarayan Tripathi

    The product looks good but the finished look is just like saying ” dont judge the book by its cover” The powder coating on the edges starts coming of within a month of purchase..The arrangement and after service is good but they just do not have good people to back up their support. The q800 i bought gave me a camera problem in the 2nd month it stopped working i had no option but to give it for repairs..Its now been 20 days and i still have not recd my product. Every time i call they says give 48 hrs which never ends…Image a product you paid Rs12000 and the camera stops working and you cannot use that phone for 20 days and cant imagine how many more days…Not worth Buying..Sorry folks…Very poor Service….absolutely appalling…I can be reached at 9867800069

        Hey Folks,
        I have also face same problem when I want send file to someone. But I can receive files. I have not dig around much as I have found one solution.

        Use “Software Data Cable” to transfer your files with WiFi-direct as most smartphones has WiFi-Direct option

      • Raj

        I also had the same problem.For me it bcoz whenever i turn on the bluetooth it directly got connected 2 my bluetooth headset.After i unpaired headset i could send files to other devices.

  • Alfa

    I bought a Xolo Q800, i think 2 months back, was moderately satisfied with the phone, however once my earphone conked off (I use it for making and receiving calls), i can’t find a earphone compatible with Xolo, the sound comes but the mic never works, and I can’t find Lava earphones in the market either.

    Can somebody tell me which earphones are compatible with Xolo?

    Worst customer service..not at all reliable !!! dont ever buy a Xolo

  • amadeus

    forget about replying positively….they do not even acknowledge if you send a mail to customer care..& after sales service & customer care is a BIG JOKE..My phone went for repair 3 times within 2 months for the same problem without any solution..finally they promised to replace the handset but instead sent a refurbished handset!!!
