Key difference: XOLO has launched the XOLO X1000, an Intel-based smartphone. The XOLO x1000 runs on a single-core Intel Atom Processor Z2480. It has a processing speed of 2 GHz due to its hyper threading capabilities, as well as a 1 GB RAM. 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.

Smartphones have made a significant place in our world and gained a lot of importance. Almost everyone is obsessed with having a smartphone and it has become something that we cannot live without. However, similar to all technology it comes with an expiry date. Once the technology is updated, the old one becomes outdate and sometimes even useless. Because of this dynamic nature, there is always new technology to buy, new phones that are launched. While, many of these new phones are pretty expensive, some companies have made it a point to launch similar features on a cheaper phone. These phones do not cause that much of a dent on the pockets of the masses, allowing them to also use chic phones and stay in style.

Among various companies, one is XOLO, a subsidy of Lava. XOLO has launched the XOLO X1000, an Intel-based smartphone. The XOLO x1000 runs on a single-core Intel Atom Processor Z2480. It has a processing speed of 2 GHz due to its hyper threading capabilities, as well as a 1 GB RAM. It is a single-SIM phone with 8 GB of internal memory. It comes with Android OS v4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which is a bit outdated, but the company has promised an update by the end of 2013. The phone also features a 4.7 inch Sharp TFT LCD with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The phone hosts an 8 MP primary camera with burst mode, and a 1.3 MP secondary camera.

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.
