The 1460mAH battery proved to be the handset's biggest issue, as we also found that charging it at least twice in a day was quite required. In our battery tests, we were able to run video non-stop with Wi-Fi running the background for no more than 4 hours and 10 minutes which, as smartphones go, is quite under par. In our tech2 loop test, the XOLO was barely able to complete a single loop that consisted of 2 hours of video, 2 hours of audio, 2 hours of audio streaming and 1.5 hours of talk time. The XOLO clocked in a total of 7 hours and a few minutes in total usage, which is not at all what we expected, considering the specs. While we can consider this to be average, since Wi-Fi was active in the background, it still isn’t impressive enough to be compared to other devices that ran for longer under same conditions.
Intel Inside - makes a difference
The Bottom Line
LAVA’s XOLO X900 comes with a price tag of 22,000, making it a very affordable smartphone, as far as we’re concerned. The fact that the Intel Atom processor makes this handset so brilliantly fast was a reason we would have recommended the device for anyone and everyone who was looking for a high-end smartphone. However, the poor battery life and possible heating issue will prove to be a deterrent in this case. LAVA has nevertheless done a decent job in terms of design and functionality, but the few issues like the lack of a removable battery, no memory expansion option, no FM radio and no ICS out-of-the-box, might not go down well with some .
In this price range, you also have the option of the Motorola Atrix 2, which features a large display, much better battery life and quite a few extras thrown in the form of EA games. But keep in mind, in terms of actual real time and tested performance in speed, the XOLO is unmatched in its class.
