Difference between XOLO Q800 and Nokia Lumia 520

Key difference: The Xolo Q800 is a Quad-core 1.2 GHz smartphone powered by MTK MT6589 and a 1 GB RAM. The phone runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). It features a 4.5 inch screen with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. The Nokia Lumia 520 is a 4-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen smartphone that offers 480 x 800 pixels display, which offers approximately 233 ppi. The phone comes with 8 GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 64 GB. The phone offers 1 GHz on its dual-core snapdragon S4 and only 512 MB RAM.

Xolo is a subsidy of Lava, a technology and mobile phone company based in India. In addition to making handsets for the Indian Market, Lava has various other segments under its banner, such as tablets, datacards and routers. As the India market is very price sensitive, Lava has had to produce an affordable range of phones. The Android based smartphones of the company are mainly released under two of its brands: Iris and Xolo.

Xolo came around when Lava tied up with Intel to release the Intel based smartphone, the Intel AZ510 in India. The phone was branded as Xolo X900. The brand endured and now handles Lava’s mid-range Android-based smartphones. The Xolo Q800 is one such phone that Lava has recently released into the market.

The Xolo Q800 is a Quad-core 1.2 GHz smartphone powered by MTK MT6589 and a 1 GB RAM. The phone runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). It features a 4.5 inch screen with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. It has an internal memory of 4GB and an expandable memory that is upgradeable up to 32GB. It also features an 8 MP camera with BSI sensor and a 1 MP secondary front-facing camera for video calling.

Nokia is a Finnish cell phone company, well known for its superb battery power and durability of its phones, and is the only phone that has not yet integrated its smartphones with Android. Nokia has been single-handedly leading Microsoft Windows OS 8 in the smartphone market.

The Lumia 520 is a 4-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen smartphone that offers 480x800 pixels display, which offers approximately 233 ppi. This is pretty good display screen for a mid-range smartphone.

The Lumia 520 is a bar phone with the straight sharp edges and is available with the standard Windows Tile layout. The phone comes with 8 GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 64 GB. The phone offers 1 GHz on its dual-core snapdragon S4 and only 512 MB RAM, which is slightly disappointing.

Another let down is the lack of a secondary camera, which makes it difficult to video conferencing. The phone does offer a 5MP autofocus primary camera, with 4X digital zoom and no flash. However, the company claims to use the same digital lens that is found on the flagship. The camera offers features such as Landscape orientation, Auto and manual exposure, Auto and manual white balance, Cinemagraph lens and Smart Shoot lens. The smart shoot lens allows the user to change individual objects in the photo and replace them with objects from the other photos. For example: incase the user is taking photos of two people; however, he does not like the expression of one person in the photo, they can swap the face for another face from another photo.

The phone is customizable with changeable shells. The phone has a monoblock casing with the sleep/wake button, camera button and volume buttons on the right-hand side of the phone. Nokia also offers the Windows Office, plus Nokia Music and Nokia Maps. The phone also offers many different features including 7GB free SkyDrive storage.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from the Xolo website, the Nokia website, techradar.com, fonearena.com and GSMArena.com.
