Difference between XOLO Q800 and Samsung Galaxy Grand

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. Samsung Galaxy Grand is a mid-range smartphone that has been launched by the Samsung Corporation. The phone sports a 5-inch capacitive touch screen with a display of 480 x 800 pixels. The phone runs on 1.2 GHz Dual-core processor and has 1 GB 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.

Due of all these mid to low-range smartphones being introduced by companies, big power houses have been forced to introduce similar mid to low-range smartphones to recapture market share. The Galaxy Grand is one such attempt by Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy Grand is a mid-range smartphone that has been launched by the Samsung Corporation. The phone sports a 5-inch capacitive touch screen with a display of 480 x 800 pixels. The phone is cased in polycarbonate plastic and is rectangular in shape with curved edges similar to other Samsung phones. The phone runs on 1.2 GHz Dual-core processor and has 1 GB RAM. The phone is dual-SIM, but is also available in single SIM in some countries. The phone runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, with no words on if it can be upgraded to 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. One worth noting feature of the phone is the Multi Window, which allows users to seamlessly multi-task, without have to minimize one application and run another. The applications run side-by-side, or in this case up and down. The company has a mounted an 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera, par with many smartphones available these days.

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