Xolo Q2100: Review, Specifications and benchmark

Indian smartphone OEM Xolo has launched an Android device with a fingerprint sensor.
This was first launched in Apple iPhone 5 and till now I think apart from iPhone 5 the Samsung Galaxy S5 has one fingerprint sensor.
You may notice that both of them are high end phones.
Although this is not at all a point that because of the above mentioned fact it provides premium features at a lower price, but the fact that it provides you the best in class security to your valuable data at a cheaper price than any other in this market.

Xolo Q2100 officially announced and priced at INR 13,499/- which was listed in the product specification page itself.

Before going into details let’s have a look on some key features of Xolo Q2100:

  • 5.5inch HD IPS display
  • 1.3 GHz Quad-core Mediatek processor
  • 8.0 MP camera with Sony Exmor R sensor
  • Android 4.4 Kitkat
  • 2,800 mAh battery

Brands like Sony, Samsung and LG definitely packs more feature but ultimately they costs much too. But brands like Xolo brings you ultimate user experience at an affordable price.

In my personal opinion the Xolo has become one of the biggest smartphone player at least in Indian market.
It has always tried to pack unique features in the lower and mid range segment smartphones starting from day 1 of it’s existence when it launched with an Intel processor.
And today it’s step towards ultimate security on a hand held device by packing a fingerprint sensor.
