Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q Signature HD

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-1

Xolo launched the Q1000, the company’s latest flagship in the ‘Q CORE’ series back in May. Celkon had also launched the A119Q Signature HD, successor of the A119 Signature HD back in May. We review both the Q1000 and the A119Q recently since these had similar features such as 5-inch HD display, quad-core processor and Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean). Even though Xolo has come up with a Tegra 3-powered Xolo Play T1000, Celkon is yet to released their next flagship device. Both these devices are priced under Rs. 15,000.  We managed to compare both these devices.

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-2

Both these devices 5-inch IPS displays at a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixel at 294 PPI pixel density. Since the display in the Q1000 is based on one-glass solution (OGS) technology, it offers vibrant colors and reduces the thickness of the device. The Q1000 has a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera with BSI sensor and the A119Q 3-megapixel front-facing camera. Both these have proximity and ambient light sensors. Both these have capacitive touch buttons for menu, home and back.

Both the devices have micro USB slot and the 3.5mm audio jack on the top. The Celkon A119Q also has the power button on the top, which is one of a drawback since it is hard to reach to unlock the device if you are holding the device while you are holding it in a single hand.

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-5

Both the devices have chrome finish on the sides. In the Q1000, the chrome rim runs all around the devices’ sides.

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-9

On the left side both the devices have a volume rocker. The Q1000 has a dedicated camera key. It is not much useful since the key is placed awkwardly, so your fingers come in contact with the camera lens or the flash when you use the camera button to take pictures.

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-8

On the back the Q100 has  8-megapixel camera sensor with LED flash. It has a BSI sensor for better low-light imaging. The Celkon A119Q features a 12-megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash next to it.

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-12

Both the devices have a similar camera UI. The Xolo Q1000 can shoot 1080p video @ 30 fps whereas the Celkon A119Q can shoot only 720p @30fps.  The camera on the Celkon A119Q is much better, but the lack of full HD recording is disappointing.

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-7

Both the devices have shiny plastic back covers.

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-6

Both these devices have a speaker grill on the bottom part of the back.

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-13

Both the phones runs on Android 4.2.1 with custom skin almost close to the stock Android UI. As a added advantage Celkon A119Q comes with a theme management system by which you can choose specific themes of the UI. Both the phones have two standard SIM card slots and lets you expand the memory up to 32GB via micro SD.

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-15

Xolo Q1000 comes with a 2100mAh Lithium Polymer battery whereas the A119Q comes with the 2100 mAh Lithium Ion battery. Battery life is almost similar in both these devices.

Xolo Q1000 vs Celkon A119Q-14

Both the devices scores in the performance. Xolo Q1000 retails at Rs. 14,990 whereas the Celkon A119Q retails at Rs. 12,500. With most of the specs being similar camera is the differentiating factor between these two phones. Celkon A119Q offers a 12MP camera with Dual LED flash but can record only 720p video. But Xolo Q1000 provides a 8MP camera with dedicated camera key and can shoot videos upto 1080p. Finally it comes to a user’s individual preference depending on the features and the cost.
