XOLO entered the Indian market with the X900, the first phone to be powered by Intel’s Medfield SoC. After failing to spark much interest, the company shifted to the more popular ARM-based chipsets, the latest of which is the A800. Priced alongside the iBall Andi 4.5h and the Micromax A110, the XOLO A800 aims to raise the bar for budget Androids even further. We break down the specifications and compare them to the closest competition. OS – Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.4)Like most budget droids in the market, the XOLO A800 features stock ICS, for the most part. The icons in the ‘Settings’ menu and the toggle switches in the notifications bar are new as are the extra options for dual SIM management and the option to schedule powering your handset on and off. We don’t know how XOLO will push any updates to the handset since there’s no OTA option. There’s a good chance that the A800 may never see Jelly Bean, which is a real shame since it has the hardware to easily handle it. Cellular network – 3G and dual-band GSM support (dual SIM) This is one area where the A800 falls a bit short as compared to the Andi 4.5h. XOLO’s offering only supports two bands in the GSM network unlike the quad-band support of the Andi 4.5h. This means if you do happen to travel a lot, chances are, you won’t be able to use this on all networks around the globe. There’s also support for 3G on the 2100MHz band, but for only one of the SIM slots and not both.
