Fresh stock of Xolo Q800 coming with downgraded chipset MTK6589W-M !!!?

The Xolo Q800 was a wonderful phone with an economical price tag. But it was very shocking and demoralizing when some of the users who recently bought the Q800 have claimed that the chipset has been downgraded. Those users are not happy with this sudden change without any intimation and perceive it as a breach of contract.

Initially Q800 came powered with Mediatek MT6589 quad core chipset. New buyers have complained that the chipset is MT6589M or MT6589W-M instead of MT6589.

CANVAS 2 General faqs/queries/doubts

I was prompted to write this post after seeing many A110 users (as well as prospects), wandering here and there, searching for some typical and common queries/doubts. But unfortunately they are not getting actual picture. Instead of true suggestions, they fall victims of  biased reviews. All popular mobile-review websites have turned into a battle field in favor of one or another brand. Such websites fail to fulfill the actual purpose for mobile users or those fellows who visit there in hope of getting help in their final purchase decision. So in this post I have tried to address Top 11 doubts/queries about Canvas2:

Swipe-n-Share app


This unique app, called Swipe ‘n’ Share, allows the user to transfer data from one phone to another using Wi-Fi. The transfer speed is super fast. Its so easy and there is no need to pay the data charges.

The app works with Android version 2.3.x and over. The app makes use of the Wi-Fi network and connects the two handsets that need to be within the Wi-Fi range. The transfer takes place directly over the Wi-Fi and it’s very fast.
