XOLO Q700 Performance – UI – Display



To get a glimpse of how the hardware can perform, we ran a few of our basic benchmarking utilities. AnTuTu scored 13453, Quadrant scored 3875 and NenaMark2 scored 39.7 fps. Linpack gave us results of 36 MFLOPS and 113.5 MFLOPS in single-thread and multi-thread tests respectively. When we matched these scores to other phones we have reviewed in the past, the Xolo Q700 performs at par with phones that sport similar chipsets.

User interface

The Xolo uses a custom user interface which is very close to the stock UI except for a few changes here and there. The app drawer page is made of four sections or tabs which feature system apps, user downloaded apps, user games and widgets. The apps are categorised well so that the user can easily find what he or she is looking for. You can keep swiping continuously to enter each tab automatically at the end of the list. The user interface is pretty smooth, thanks to the quad core processor, 1 GB of RAM and GPU on board. The manufacturer has included just a handful of useful apps for the user which are Xolo Switch, Kids Mode, Xolo Secure and Xolo Power. As we mentioned earlier, this phone has multi-user profiles which seems to be a borrowed feature from the tablet OS and customised by the manufacturer’s in-house developers. Android limited the multi-user profile option to the tablets only and did not implement it for phones. Using the app called Xolo Switch, you can setup multiple user profiles so that they have their own desktop and apps when using the phone. Similar to a desktop PC, this ensures that the users can keep their apps and data private.

Kids mode is a feature app pre-installed on the phone. This app puts the phone in kid mode or child mode which can be installed with entertainment and educational apps for your children. The mode will lock the phone completely and you can happily handover the phone to your child to play with, without worrying about any data loss, application launch or unwanted phone calls and SMSes going out. You also have the option of blocking incoming calls if you need to. Xolo Secure is for backing up your phone’s data onto the cloud for safe keeping. Lastly, Xolo Power is a power management utility to control the phone’s usage accordingly and extend the battery life. You can set the background data sync frequency, setup night mode timings and setup what the phone should do when the battery runs low. It also gives you a time estimation on the remaining battery life.

Display and media

Sporting a 4.5-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 540 x 960, the display on the Xolo Q700 is crisp and clear. There are no viewing angle issues whatsoever. The colours are bright and vibrant and the picture quality is great. As far as the video playback is concerned, the handset can play full HD 1080p MP4 files coded in MPEG4, H263and H.264 formats with great ease. Playback of full HD 1080p content in other formats also played very well except that you can see a minute framing in the fast panning and action scenes. Switching from hardware decoding to software decoding in a third-party player can eliminate this visual disturbance.


Audio files supported by the Q700 are MP3, MIDI, WAV, 3GPP,AAC and AAC+. The onboard speaker is loud and clear and great for playing music, streaming radio and short videos when in a small group. The bundled earphones are in-ear type. The build quality is a little below average, while the audio quality is above average with excellent bass reproduction, but a little disappointing on mids and highs. Overall, the audio quality is acceptable and you might not need another pair of earphones unless you tend to damage them or if you are an audiophile.
