The XOLO Win Q900s is touted as the world's lightest Windows Phone device, and recently went on sale in India.
The company's maiden Windows Phone device is a budget smartphone and intends to compete in a crowded price segment with basic, yet decent, specifications and the Windows Phone 8.1 experience. I got my hands on one, and head past the break to check out the what's included in the box, and my first impressions of the device.
XOLO Win Q900s First Impressions
The Win Q900s comes in a rather heavy box compared to other budget Lumias which is ironic for the lightest Windows Phone device. It's a solid box, and can take in a little rough handling during shipping.
Once you open the box, you'll find the phone and the removable battery alongside. There's a pair of in-ear headsets, a USB sync and charge cable, and a USB power adapter to use with the cable.
XOLO also bundles a couple of useful accessories in the box. There's a pretty good leather-finish flip cover for the phone and a screen protector. The two can keep your phone safe from a little casual and rough handling. The flip cover sports a neat XOLO branding at the back. You need to take off the phone's back panel, and replace it with the plastic panel on the flip cover.
The Dual SIM smartphone is already up for sale in India, and competes with the budget Lumia devices as well as the Micromax Canvas Win W121 in the sub-$200 price segment.
I've been using the XOLO Win Q900s for a few days now, and will share a comprehensive review of the device soon. Do you like the first impressions of the device, and would want to pick one? Share your queries that you might have about the device in the comments, and we'll try to answer those in our review. Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this – It's really light!

PS5 games prices are higher than Xbox — but is that a good thing?
Sony's PlayStation 5 reveal came with some big caveats, and one of the most overlooked ones is the fact that games will be more expensive, seemingly across the board. Should Microsoft and Xbox jump on that train as well?
