XOLO starts rolling out Android 4.4.2 update for Q3000

XOLO Q3000 KitKat updateOver two months after releasing the beta version of Android 4.4 update for Q3000 smartphone, XOLO has now started rolling out the final and stable version of KitKat update for the phone. The update is now available over-the-air (OTA) and the Q3000 owners can head over to the XOLO Care app on their smartphone to look for the update.

Official change-log is not available at this point but you can expect to see the usual KitKat goodies like immersive mode, UI improvements, support for new Hangouts app with SMS/ MMS integration, cloud-print support, performance enhancements, security improvements and more.

The manual download link is not given on the XOLO website right now but we expect it to go live in the next few days.

Q3000 is the final device of the XOLO’s first batch of KitKat update roll-outs. The next batch includes devices like Q1200, Q900s, A500 Club, A600, A550s IPS for which the update roll-out has already started.

If you have updated your XOLO Q3000 to KitKat, do let us know about the experience in the comments section.

Thanks Rohit for the tip

  1. Hi Gaurav,

    Thanks for Credits… updated last night… some things are good, some are bad. It is trying to imitate single home screen UI of Apple & Various chinese mnfrs. Lets talk about first impression…

    1. UI has started to smoothen a lot. Touch has become super sensitive.
    2. Icons have changed a lot. New & better icons in place now.
    3. New Call Log interface. Will take time to adjust.
    4. Widgets are not seen in App Drawer. Can be accessed only from Home Screen.
    5. Internal Memory available for App Installation is still 1GB out of 16 GB. Could have been increased very easily.
    6. Battery improvement –> Still need to see as update is quite new.

    OTA update size is abt 375MB.

    • Seriously speaking… I don’t know… Mine was one from the first lot… so, may be they are releasing the OTA update in batches.

      One thing to note, I didn’t use beta at all… although, I did download but never installed !

      Build number now is KK_S005_28102014

  2. On 30th October upgraded to kitkat build kk_S007_27052014 from Noida service center.

    Very Bad Experiences :
    Web surfing very slow
    Battery shows overcharged notification green Led on crossing 90% charge.
    When i set display sleep time 10 minutes. On Overnight charging the battery was just 21% charged.
    Battery drains out rapidly in normal usage.

    Some good experiences are :
    ROM increased from 1 GB to 4 GB. that’s Very good.
    Some Apps are more advanced.
    Proximity Sensors improvement.
    Camera flash in night is clear. Previously it was milky blurred.

    I don’t know whether the update.zip 374 MB file uploaded today on xolo website is the same which I have got installed from service center or it is more advanced and refined.

    If it is better then how to upgrade the newer version.

    Please suggest me.

  4. Seems like Xolo doesn’t know they are doing. They seem to have created a big mess out of this.

    @ Manish… I think you have old version which was for beta testing (i may be wrong here), i didn’t use the Xolo care app for upgrade. Got the msg for upgrade & did that OTA using 3G on phone. Some things with your upgrade are different from the one that I have. ROM is still 1GB ( No 4GB )… Rest, I agree with you. Also, the battery performance in my phone has improved a lot. It last over 2 days now on heavy use.

    @ Vinit… it is possible that they have not rolled out update for set as it could be a batch release. My set was from the very first lot and bought it on the first day of retail itself.
