For long time, Xolo has been trying to make itself as premium smartphone brand. Now, it has concentrated itself to a lower mid-range device and is doing well with a great user response. Recently, Xolo has launched a pair of handsets for Rs. 10000, Xolo Omega 5.0 and 5.5. Both devices have a lot many things in common with slight difference in screen, camera and battery.
In most respect it is a hardcore Android device and is perfect for gaming and Android UI. Let’s review these devices.
Display and Design
This device is more of black plastic though its metallic trim around its sides that gives its a support. The device’s both left and right strip consists of power and volume buttons. The Micro USB port and its 3.5mm headset socket are on top.
The screen size measures 5” 720*1280 with 294 ppi with multi touch display that supports 5 touch points and a pixel density of 267ppi. It runs on IPS technology it gives great off axis viewing angles.
Xolo finally has an octa-core processor, the MediaTek MT6592M that runs at 1.4GHz. There is 1GB RAM and 8GB storage that is normal for other devices.
The handset runs on Android v4.4 KitKat OS with Hive UI on the top.
Camera and Battery
Xolo Omega comes with 8MP rear camera and 1080p video while its front camera is a 2MP unit. It comes with features like Sony Exmor sensor, face detection and LED flash. It comes with an onboard memory of 8GB and microSD card slot that is expandable up to 32GB.
The device is powered by 2100mAh Li-ion battery that gives 30.8 hours of talk time up to 780 hours of talk time in a 2G network.
Being under Rs. 10000 category is the best part of this device. While other brands like XiaomiRedMi Note sells at the same price. Even with better specs, RedMi Note comes at par with Omega 5.0.
Xolo Omega’s camera has some minor issues but is decent overall. While battery does a great job giving satisfactory performance.
If we compare this device with other in terms of exterior look, then this device is not that great. It comes with a 5” screen that is a compromising feature between size and portability. If you always long for camera then you can go for Asus Zenfone 5.
Otherwise if you are looking to buy a phablet in this price range then Xolo Omega 5.0 should be top in your choice list. Xolo mobile prices is not a big problem for the price conscious buyers as Xolo Omega 5.0 is for Rs. 9999.
