Review of Xolo A500S


The Xolo A500S has brought the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean phones to the entry level. The best thing is that there is no finding the middle ground on either the price or the specifications. That’s not all. The phones also have the Secure anti-theft apps.

This does two things – it backs up the text messages and also can track the location of the handset remotely. So, the handset remains secure even if it is lost. And the chances of misusing it also come down.


The phone is sleek and stylish and carries a matte look. The thickness of the phone is less than even 9 mm. This device is the descendant of the A500 that had the Android Ice Cream Sandwich as the OS.
