XOLO has launched the XOLO One, a low budget smartphone. Now one would think that this is another Android One smartphone, it’s not. XOLO One – this one for everyone, is here to compete with the Android One smartphones. It is priced at Rs. 6,599.

If you go by the looks this one from XOLO would be your first choice. The back panel is with high quality artificial leather finishing, that itself will make the XOLO stand out from the rest. This one (XOLO One) will be available in 4 color options.

It is dual SIM powered by the same MediaTek 1.3GHz MT6582 quad core processor that we have seen on the Android one smartphones. Yes with Mali 400 MP2 GPU. Handset is 9.3mm thick and sports a 4.5 inch IPS screen with 854 x 480 pixels resolution.

Android KitKat 4.4.2 runs the show and XOLO has specifically mentioned that this one will get the Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade. There is 1GB RAM, 8GB storage and 32GB external card support. A 5MP camera is placed on the rear and front camera is of VGA resolution. It looks like both the cameras as fixed focus.

dual sim quad core XOLO One is here

Common features are 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi and GPS. There are 3 sensors accelerometer, proximity and light. Removable battery is 1700 mAh capacity with up to 8 hours of talk time. Another pointed to be noted is that unlike the Android One phones the XOLO One comes with dedicated navigation buttons.

The XOLO One has got the best look and comes with a good price tag of Rs. 6,599. As for the the Huawei Honor Holly seems a better option for the price / specs, I still have to review these to get a better idea.

  3. Gogi bro plz help ,i have to buy phone on diwali and i’m confusd b/w xolo one and honour holly . .plz

    1. Hi Jordan, why u r confused? Obviously Huwaei Honor Holly is the best. Just compare both specs n ur doubts will be cleared.

    2. I have yet to do the reviews but if you ask specs wise just look at it and considering the price the holly seems better.

    3. Thnx everyone,i just called hauwei and they said that holly will not get android L update? Thats why i’m confused

  4. Hlo gogi sir this xolo one is a android one device
    And this phone performance same as another android one smartphones

  5. Nice Preview!!
    Sir..
    Seems like a good one than Micromax A1,Sparkle and Dream Uno..
    What about Huawei Honor Holly??
    I ‘m planning to buy it.
    Is it ok to buy it or Xolo One is better than Honor Holly??
    Thanks.

    1. Gogi..
      Xolo has poor after sales service in India as claimed by many users!!
      Does Huawei has after sales service in India??

  6. No one is going to buy this, Huwaei honor holly rockssss !!!! If it has HD screen then only one can consider this..

  7. Seems like better than android one .It has 8gb internal space …good design …also android l update ..

  8. Sir I have xolo mt 6589 phone its becoming slow so i wanted some information about custom ROM which is best

  9. Can some tell me how to transfer file from internal memory to pendrive using OTG in xolo q3000.

  10. Gogi bro dont you think Arya Z2 and Huawei Holly beats this phone by a huge difference. Though Arya Z2 isnt that well known as of Salora but Huawei still holds a great trust as being top notch chinese manufacturer.

    1. Apoorv, yes Holly does beat this in terms of specs/ price (not sure if Huawei will give Android L) in fact specs are much better on the Holly, I still have to test it to get a better idea.

      1. Dear Gogi,

        We would like to see the review of Huawei Holly.
        it is available on flipkart.
        Thanks in advance.

      2. Holly is much better than this one….bigger HD display… more storage space…and price difference only 400/-… Waiting for a review from you Gogi….
