So how did the Xolo do? Well, for starters the display is definitely not up to par with comparable phones from HTC or Samsung and the colors were simply too dull. Despite having a very good processor (one of the very few plus points), the display completely detracted from the experience of viewing images and movies or playing games on the phone. A point in favor of the Xolo in addition to the processor would be its smoothness. We would put it in between Android and Windows Mobile in the smoothness department. It is also quite capable of multi-tasking and we pounded the phone with memory hogging apps and the phone performed well. No significant lag was noticed despite having about 15 apps open at the same time. The stock font size is quite small and we foresee people having difficulty in reading on the phone. But that is a simple fix.
Update (6/21/2012): It looks like someone heard our comments about there being barely any marketing for the Xolo X900. We have noticed commercials on TV and online ad banners promoting the Xolo X900… a LOT. We’ll wait to see if this ad spend has a profound effect on the sales figures.
