Our Take on Lava Xolo A500
Lava Xolo A500 looks goods on the first look but it seems disappointing as it runs on Android ICS. And Lava not being a big name, it is difficult to get Jellybean on it. Also the battery which is only 1,500 mAh might not last for as long as a complete day.
Also the availability of Lava Xolo A500 seem to be an issue as only Flippkart seemed to have indexed it and there also it is out-of-stock. Yet, if you don’t want to invest a lot on Mobile, you can consider it as an option.
