The XOLO Q2000 made headlines a few weeks back, it comes powered by the MT6589 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. The key attraction is a bigger body of 5.5 inch screen with HD resolution. The Q2000 is priced at Rs. 14,999.

Box Pack
Inside the box you will find the handset, screen guard, data cable, OTG cable, a free flip cover, 2600 mAh battery, earphone, warranty booklet and user guide. On the box it’s clearly mentioned that OTG is supported.

XOLO Q2000 review
Design: The phone is bulky – weight is 186 grams, thickness is 9.65mm, breadth is 77.80mm and length is over 154mm. Look wise it is pretty impressive. Though it might feel a little bigger in the palm, cause of the design and 5.5 inch screen, the Q2000 is an attention seeker. Build quality and finishing is very good. The rear back cover is very thin and seems delicate.

The greyish – black glossy side along with the rear black color blends well. Rear side is with matte finish (feels like rubber).

Volume rockers are placed on the left, power button on the right, mic at the bottom and 3.5mm audio jack and micro USB port on the top. On the rear the camera portion is a bit outward.

Display: XOLO Q2000 comes with a 5.5 inch IPS screen with 1280×720 pixels resolution. It supports 4 point multi touch, touch is smooth and responsive plus viewing angles are also good. There are accelerometer, proximity and light sensors.

Memory and Storage: This dual SIM handset comes with 8GB onboard storage and 1GB RAM. There is micro SD card slot that supports external 32GB cards. You can install apps on external storage.

0.98GB is assigned for apps, 5.44GB as internal storage and 598MB is the free RAM available after the first boot. OTG is supported. This handset runs on Android 4.2 OS.

Performance: On the box the chipset mentioned is MT6589W, however it is MT6589 – the same that we have seen on Lava Iris 504q, Zen Ultrafone 701 and the Micromax A116. Q2000 is powered by 1.2GHz quad core MT6589 chipset with PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU.

Benchmark scores

  • Quadrant Standard – 3965
  • AnTuTu – 13477
  • Vellamo – HTML5 1496, Metal 437
  • Nenamark 2 – 46.0 fps
  • Multi touch : 4 points.

Camera: There is 13MP rear auto focus camera with LED flash and front camera of 3MP resolution. The still image quality is good. On the box it is mentioned that the handset can record and play full HD videos, unfortunately when I tested, it could record only in VGA (640x480p) resolution. I tried all of the video quality options but it always recorded in VGA resolution. It seems like an issue with the camera app as the hardware is capable of recording FHD videos. Probably XOLO will come out with an update to fix this issue.

Update from XOLO : They will roll out a fix for the camera issue via OTA update, pretty soon. It is a minor camera (app) glitch.

Since the handset could not record videos in 1080p I have skipped the full HD video sample shoot.

Entertainment and Gaming: The XOLO Q2000 can play full HD videos in both H/W and S/W mode using MX player. I played Dead Trigger 2 and Asphalt8. The Asphalt8 was not that smooth. I then installed the Asphalt8 on internal storage and it got better. And then I changed the graphics details from high to medium and it got even better – check the gaming video.

Others: Sound is loud and clear. The handset heats up a bit which is normal. The screen is visible under direct sunlight. 3G, Wi-FI, Bluetooth and GPS worked well.

Battery: Battery is of 2600 mAh capacity. During the review I used the handset running benchmark apps for around 23 minutes the battery level dropped by 10% and while playing games for around 17 minutes the battery dropped by 8%. You can play games continuously for around 4 hours. For moderate usage the handset should last for a day on a full charge.

Verdict: I am sure all of you know the MT6589 quite well by now. Q2000 is priced at Rs. 14,999. The XOLO Q2000 has got the looks and the size, if that is what you are looking for; otherwise you can get MT6589T (1.5GHz) with a 5 inch screen for around the same price.
