Uh oh! Lava XOLO X900 has Intel inside but no battery connectors!
What do we have here? Had we not known any better, we would have called it the weirdest contraption we have ever seen in our lives on a cellphone, leave alone a smartphone on which rests Intel’s mobile aspirations. This is the battery compartment of the Lava XOLO X900, which according to the product box is manufactured by Intel Semicon. However, if you ask us, this would be the crappiest thing we have ever seen. It even beats the cheap Shanzai phones we get in grey markets.
If you notice closely, the battery does not have any connectors! Instead, there are some wires sneaking out from the phone to which the battery has been, wait for it, taped! In essence, users cannot just pick up a spare battery and change it if one runs out of juice. Worse still, what if the connecting wires snap? No sir, nothing doing. You would have to go to a service centre and get it repaired!
We still cannot understand why Intel would let anything like this go into the hands of a consumer? Why?
