The XOLO Q1011 looks pretty sleek and it’s pretty slim at 8.3 mm thickness. It features a 5-inch IPS display with One Glass Solution (OGS) of HD (1280x720p) resolution. Under the hood, it’s powered by a 1.3 GHz Quad-core MediaTek Mt6582 processor with Mali-400 MP GPU and 1 GB RAM. The internal storage is pretty modest at 4 GB and there’s microSD expansion up to 32 GB.

It packs in an 8 MP rear camera with a BSI sensor and an LED flash. The rear camera supports 1080p video recording. The camera software comes with the usual modes like Face Detection, Smile Shot, HDR, Panorama, Scene Detection and tuning and more. On the front, there’s a 2 MP front-facing camera for your selfie needs.

As you already know by now, the XOLO Q1011 comes with Android 4.4 KitKat on board and there’s a 2250 mAh Li-pol battery, which XOLO says offers superior battery life. On the connectivity front, there’s Dual SIM support along with other connectivity options like  3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0, USB OTG and A-GPS.

Comparison:

All of them are fairly new devices, so it’ll be interesting to see who manages to come out on top. Check out:

The XOLO Q1011 is surely the best of the lot but the Windows Phone 8.1 powered Micromax Canvas Win W121 gives it a good fight. The XOLO Q1011 features better camera, bigger battery and a faster processor while the Canvas Win features more storage. It’s also a matter of which platform you like, Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat or Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8.1. We are pretty sure that neither of these devices will disappoint you. The XOLO Q1011 is surely the better device on paper but for the storage. If you are okay with 4 GB internal storage, you should go with the XOLO device or you can go ahead with the Canvas Win W121.
