guys please start giving your suggestions to customer care. They will resolve all the issues in jelly bean update which would come by next month. We can ask them to activate the microSD card support and provide the camera app with the same features that were present in gingerbread but with improved photo quality. Let's start suggesting them guys. We together can take this phone to the highest level.

bought 1 months ago; updated to ics on the very same day. it does not jave any problem in running any high end apps .... no probs except some hitting issue n battry run out of time. I try even 1.5 gb game. it runs nice. some people are in perception that it is single core but in fact this device is dual core processor. if u check antutu benchmark after Ics update it gives around 11757 score which just behind htc one x but far above samsung galaxy s 2 whose rating is around 9800. But antutu rating b4 ics update(in android 2.3) is around 5800. so prformance become much better after ics update. if u check the quadrant benchmark and linpack bencark too, it is just behind galaxy s 3 and htc one x, n have similar score as galaxy note 1. overall I m glad to discover that this is dual core processor as suggested in system info in various brchmark........

Hello xolo lovers,

A good news for all of you. Our phone supports external memory card. The slot is present but it's not activated. I contacted xolo care and asked them to activate it but they said they would do only if majority of consumers ask for it. So I request you guys to contact xolo care and suggest them to activate the memory card. Also, our camera hardware is very good. Only the thing is that we need that much good software then it will start clicking pics the way other it's competitors click. So let's start giving our suggestions guys. Let's take xolo to the highest level.

Got this phone 2 days ago. I have not put my SIM in yet, have been using it on Wifi - yes sometimes it get hot and uneasy on hand, all android phones mostly do iguess, this being a little on higher. But other pro's make it worth a buy, fast, really easy on hand, super smooth and u cannot fine a better phone in india for 15K. So overall i am very satisfied

> In reply to sac @ 2012-11-27 14:42 from FYkD - click to readPouch for xolo is not available. I am using a pouch which is as big as that of samsung galaxy s3. You can get this pouch in any mobile store. YOu can use samsung galaxy s advance or samsung galaxy s2 screenguard. Also I am using samsung galaxy s2 back cover to save camera lens from damage. Though phone becomes heavier with the back cover but we need to manage somehow until xolo accessories are out in the market.

I was using zoom camera and FX camera on gingerbread. Even in complete dark, photos were coming very bright as if they are taken in a room lighted by 4 bulbs but in ICS, the photos turn out to be dark using the same apps. Did you notice this or it's the problem with only my handset?

hey..
i PURCHASED this smartphone intel xolo x900 after extensive research from tech2buzz,igyaan,anandtech,digit, youutbe,etc,etc..
i got this phone after diwali and have been USING IT FOR 10 DAYS now..
i upgraded it to ics ( from the xolo website) ( jb promised in december, lets see)..
and i must say .. THE PHONE's SUPERB!!!! SIMPLY SUPERB.. for its 15k ( got it from adexmart.com) pricing . retails at 22k.

PROS-
1) processor speed and ram - simply the best.. with a neneamrk of 39.2 fps and 3950 in quadrant, no lag whatsoever .. i played temple run, nfs most wanted and there was NO LAG or frame missing.. very fast snappy . ..this is its usp.. intel has done a brilliant job with the medfield platform and 1 gb ram..
2) display - ipt lcd display with 295ppi ( retina has 320 ppi) is vibrant and colour production ( 16m colors) is good.
3) design is very good ( this is how a phone would like if apple and lg made it together!). the back rubber is really nice to hold. the phone feels good in the hand. the silver bezel gives a premium feel
4) ics is stock.. no tweakings.. whichis how i prefer it.
5) touch is responsive
6) good call quality.
7) wifi and browsing is a pleasure.

AVERAGE -
1) the cameras and speakers , though not the best, are ok ok..
2) the battery lasts for a day witth moderate usage.. but thats the case with all smartphones.
3) Build Quality - though the phone is fine for careful users ( like myself), it seems to be a little delicate for the tribulations of rough use.


CONS-
1) Heating - the device ( only the back lower part as mentioned by ranjit in vid) gets slightly heated up when playing games like nfs mw but NOT WITH NORMAL USAGE.
2) accessories - being a very uncommon mobile, it is very difficult to get a screen protector or back cover.. i m still trying but in vain.
3) no external sd card. fixed storage of 16gb .( 10.73 available).
uses microsim.

I would recommend anybody to consider this phone for buying.. its stands along with the premium phones ( even outpermorms some like samsung galaxy nexus,s ans s2)that too for a price tag of 15k - 22k.

also this phone has been manufactured by intel in hong kong.. lava is only thr marketer..
sells in uk in the name of orange san diego and in russia, its sold by megaphone provider..

Are you guys having troubles with shadowgun? I can intall it and run it but the game lags so much that to move or firea gun it takes more than 20-30 minutes. The funny thng is that I have nfs mostwanted 2012 installed and it has more heavy graphics than shadowgun and I can play it with no lag and is butter smooth
