The XOLO A700s is evenly matched to the Moto E and it even manages to go ahead when it comes to the camera. The Moto E has an advantage with the latest Android 4.4 KitKat on board and Motorola has promised regular updates. XOLO too has been working hard on bringing the updates to its devices but we’re not sure if the KitKat update would come to the XOLO A700s.

Well, if you can live with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, then the XOLO A700s is a pretty good device.
