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.


MT6589M cannot record videos in FHD resolution. GPU is also under-clocked at 156MHz. MT6589M can record 720p videos only. 1080p video playback do not work in MX player by selecting H/W mode. You can better check Q700 to see the performance of MT6589M. If anyone else find such degradation of chipset, please comment here as it would bring out awareness of such malpractices. Emails alone can't fulfill the purpose. So new buyers of Q800, who have purchased their phones recently, do post here regarding same.

  1. Thats why brands alike Lava and Micromax stand nowhere in front of Samsung,Nokia,etc. Lava cheating us by downgrading processor and GPU. And Micromax cheated by increasing prices in name of high demand and tax liabilities. Shame on them. I had decided to go for Q800, but now I'll never opt for any Lava phone in future.

    Thanks Mr.Fransis for your timely info and alert.

    3. Shubham, with downgraded chipset video records @ 720p. But with the previous original chipset it could record @ 1080p. You can record small video (for about 50 sec) and check its properties. It will tell you the truth. Moreover size of that recording should be greater than 150MB. Hope you got it.

  7. even i recognized this, when i went to buy this mobile, once they made a name for this mobile and now they are cheating, many don't see what processors they use. average buyer sees the comments on the net and buy it. This is pure cheating they should have taken out the moble form the market or kept the price at 12k. should not downgraded processor and GPU. DONT BUY THIS MOBILE NOW, slightly higher price but gionee e3 is better option, its a beatiful piece of phone with wonderful camera, and u can check other options in this price rage opt for urself which is a better phone but not this Q800 CHEATERS.
