Xolo launched Q700 two days ago and sold out the phone within a day, so what is special about the phone? We compare it with a similar Karbonn offering to find.
Indian brands are finally getting popular enough to put a sold out button on newly launched products. First it was Micromax with its Canvas HD and now it's the turn of Xolo Q700.
On the face of it the phone looks very similar to a product from Karbonn called the Titanium S1.
Display size, quad core processor and pricing are very similar, but Xolo has added a lot of new features to make Xolo Q700 more attractive to make it standout.
Here is a comparison between Karbonn Titanium S1 and Xolo Q700 to see how they are different. Xolo Q700 is priced at Rs 9,999 while Karbonn Titanium S1 is selling for Rs 9,400.
In terms of overall design Karbonn Titanium S1 appears to be sleeker with its dimensions reading 66 x 134.6 x 9.25 mm; while Xolo Q700 is slightly bigger measuring 135.8 x 67.5 x10.2 mm.
Karbonn Titanium S1 and Xolo Q700 get 4.5 inch capacitive touch displays with qHD (540 x 960 pixel) resolution. However, Xolo has used One Glass Solution (OGS) Technology, which promises a better viewing angle, sunlight readability and touch response. The technology enables a protective glass cover to act as the touch sensor and also reduces the gap between the display layer and the cover layer. This makes for better touch response while making the display appear closer to the surface, offering better visibility. We have not used either of these phones and therefore would not comment on which one is better to use, but technology-wise Xolo wins.
