The look and appeal of the device:
With a dimension of 125 x 63.9 x 9.1 mm (Height x Widthx Thickness) its really decent at this price budget.
4 inch display is quite larger enough at this budget and even the is really handy to have it in your hands comfortably.
The WVGA resolution is not large enough but it’s really good for the price range.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 which was the famous flagship of Samsung had the same resolution when it was launched.
The look and design of this phone is quite appealing and really very attractive.
It has a 5 Megapixels camera and lighten by an LED flash
Supports Auto Focus
It supports only HD Recording(1280×720)
Other features include: Scene detection & tuning, Face Recognition, Panorama, Geo tagging, Best shot, Smile shot, HDR
The front facing VGA camera keeps you closer to your loved ones by supporting video calls and even it supports Operator video calling support.

Of course it is not the only phone at the same price range.
Although it looks cheaper as compared to the specification but if you look closely in the market there are so many other options available out there.
Consumers now have so many choices at the same budget from Micromax or Karbonn or even Motorola.
And of course with 512 MB of RAM space of this phone, I don’t think the phone will perform well on Android KitKat OS version.
Because I have a SpnyEricsson Xperia Mini pro, which is not supporting KitKat officially but thankfully because of Cyanogenmod it supports KitKat but with horrible performance, honestly.
If you take a look into the Karbonn Titanium S1 plus then you will find really a good deal as compared to this phone.
In addition, the karbonn Titanium S1 plus gives you 1.2GHz Quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, FM radio and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean but the look is not that appealing as compared to Xolo A550s.
Finally the choice is yours to have a very good looking phone or a phone that is responsive when you are going to use it.
