Xolo Q1010i Unboxing


Xolo had launched the Q1010 back in February, but they already came back with an updated model, the Xolo Q1010i, in April, with a slightly higher price tag of Rs. 13,499. The very similar Q1010i sports an upgraded camera module, packing a Sony EXMOR R sensor, that used to be all the rage when Sony had it on the Xperia Arc, its yesteryear flagship device. While we will definitely let you know how the camera is, lets start with the usual unboxing routine so you can get acquainted with the retail box contents of this device, in case you are planning to buy one. It naturally includes a hardware and a quick software walkthrough, so here’s our unboxing video of the Xolo Q1010i –


Here’s a recap of the box contents that showed up on video –


  • Xolo Q1010i in black
  • In-ear earphones with mic
  • USB travel plug
  • Micro USB cable
  • USB OTG cable
  • Information booklets

Surprisingly, even with a cavity in the box, the flip cover seemed to be missing, which might be an isolated issue, but hey, there is a USB OTG cable inside, which is increasingly getting inside mid range boxes these days. The Xolo Q1010i on the other hand is almost the same as the Q1010 in looks as well as specifications. Here are the complete specifications of the device –

The key highlight of the phone is its camera of course. Usually, we don’t see quality sensors or decent camera output in this price range, but, as mentioned earlier, the EXMOR R sensor on the Q1010i is an interesting choice. Considering that they have re-released a device just for the camera, we expect it to perform well, knowing that the Xperia Arc was particularly good. Overall, the phone looks promising, with a decent display, good build quality and possibly, a great camera. But we will let you know all the details in the coming days, through synthetic benchmarks, gaming tests and of course, a look at the camera too, so stay tuned and let us know if you have any questions about this device, in the comments section below.
