    • Sir…one last question? Which is overall a better phone…xolo black 1x @7999 or xolo black @8999? Is xolo likely to slash the price of xolo black in near future? Or are they likely to launch a new flagship soon?

    • I like the Xolo Black in terms of looks the 3 GB RAM version is better …also the Xolo Black 1X just has 2400 mAH battery life which will not be sufficient for all day usage

  1. Dear sir,

    I have been reading a lot of articles on your site. I am very much interested in xolo black 3gb variant which is now available for 8999 online. I know there are better Chinese offerings, but I wish to use an Indian brand. Other mobiles on the list are micromax canvas 5 and micromax canvas knight 2. My budget is under 10k. I am looking for a phone which offers decent performance, good camera, decent battery back up (at least 1 entire day) with no fuss. After reading mixed reviews, I want to know your honest opinion on xolo black 3gb variant. Eagerly waiting for your response. Thank you.

    Rohit P

    • As you yourself know it is not the best option in the price range but it looks different and is good value for money deal for the current price. But also all Indian companies like Xolo , Lava , Micromax get the phones from China they import from there and sell in India so what difference it makes if you buy from a Chinese brand

    • I completely agree with you. I am using a meizu MX 5 now. Chinese brands are more polished, look good, have better performance and battery life, more durable and a vital point is they have better camera. The point I wanted to ask you is..does xolo black stand up to these Chinese brands or will it disappoint? I have used yureka and I liked the phone except for the poor battery. It was more fast than my MeizuMX5 while surfing the net and was half the price. So is xolo black a phone that can compete with these big boys?

  2. I usually dont play a lot of games on my phone but i do switch between a lot of apps… Can you suggest me a phone with a good battery backup of around 3000 mah and around 9k

  3. I am confused between LeEco Le 1S vs Lenovo Vibe K4 Note vs Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 vs Honor 5X vs Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 pro vs Xolo Black.
