We are at an age where smartphones are a common thing everywhere you look. In fact, the popularity of the devices have given birth to certain dedicated markets that have reached top of the charts in terms of sales generated. And as you may have guessed by now, the Indian smartphone market isn't any different.
We have a few big names in the market like Samsung, Apple and Sony at the moment. However, it needs to be said that the a number of Indian names Are also entering the scene to produce offerings that could easily compete with their more esteemed rivals.
Lava's premium arm Xolo, apart from the likes of Micromax and Karbonn, are one of those Indian names that have currently set out to make a name for itself among others in the market. And most of the device's on offer from these setups show that all are trying to offer the most in the least possible price range. A potential strategy that seems to be working out for most.
Keeping up the trend, Xolo recently unveiled the brand new Q600s smartphone. While you may not be much enticed by the smartphone at just a single glance, but it does fall under the group of devices that are offering the latest Android KitKat.
But we are sure that the KitKat isn't the only great thing about this new Xolo phone. So what are the strong points of the phone and where does it need to make ground? We take a look at the detailed review for the same.
Xolo Q600s Review: Form Factor and Operating System
The Xolo Q600s review unit that was handed over to GizBot sports a White color variant. The device offers a brilliant 11.43 cm (4.5-inch) Display with Full Lamination Technology. For the time being we have held the device and used it around, it seems like the phone's screen could have adjusted even better to the direct sunlight.
There's a reason why the company has introduced a brand new Full Lamination Technology in its smartphone and has highlighted it so much. This technology assists the device in preventing the unwanted refraction of light rays that emit from the LCD giving a clear, crisp & vibrant view.
The IPS technology allows a crisp view from all angles and the One Glass Solution technology makes the touch response wonderfully smooth. The device display offers good viewing angles and rich colors. However, as we mentioned before, it does suffers from poor sunlight senstitivity, and at times it feels like the display is too reflective.
However, as far as overall build is concerned, the device's thickness is measured just at 7.9mm of thickness. In fact, at just 7.9mm, Q600s is one of the slimmest smartphones available in the market in recent times.
Speaking about the operating system for the same, the device indeed comes fitted with the brand new Android KitKat operating system. Needless to say, the OS is pretty close to a stock Android.
However, there were a few issues with the overall user interface for the device. Also, the UI at times might feel a bit sluggish. We were also a bit taken back by the fact that a smartphone running Android KitKat having stuttering issues even when you access the drop down notification panel.
You could solve that issue by installing a host a launcher app from a host of different ones available in Google Play (like Nova Launcher). But that's a way to bypass the problem, not remove it entirely. But one thing's for sure: It works out on an overall scale and will allow you to get the job done with whatever's under the hood.
