XOLO is definitely on a launch spree as the vendor is constantly filling the market with impressive smartphones. It is one firm that is focusing on launching gaming oriented handsets in the budget market segment with models under its Play series. Now, XOLO has come up with a new smartphone called Play 8X-1100 that carries a price tag of Rs 14,999. Here is what we think of XOLO 8X 1100 smartphone. 

Xolo has done an amazing job in the Camera Department for the phone. At the back of the Play 8X-1100 is a 13 MP Sony Exmor RS camera sensor coupled with faster auto focus and Full HD 1080p video recording. Also, there is a 5 MP selfie camera at the front teamed up with BSI sensor and 88 degree wide angle lens to provide a wide frame enabling group selfies. This will make the Xolo smartphone a great hit among the teens and people looking for a budget phone with great camera capabilities.

Storage wise, the handset comes with an impressive 16 GB internal storage capacity that should suffice in storing all the necessary content. However, the device features a micro SD card slot for additional storage support up to 32 GB.

A 1.7 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor drives the handset in order to deliver superior performance. This is paired with a 700 MHz Mali 450 GPU which enables the smartphone to run HD quality games easily. Also, there is 2 GB of RAM(LPDDR2) capacity onboard for decent multi-tasking. With these specs the phone will be able to satisfy casual as well as hardcore mobile gamers.

A 2100mah battery provides the phone with all the juice it needs in day to day activities but falls short to support long hours of gaming.

The display unit is a 5 inch one with a HD resolution of 1280X720 pixels resulting in 294 ppi(pixel per inch) pixel density. The IPS technology will render decent viewing angles and good levels of color reproduction. Furthermore, the screen is layered with the scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection that will add to its strengths.

The Xolo Play 8X-1100 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat. Also, there are connectivity features such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and USB OTG ensuring seamless connectivity even on the go. To the gamer’s delight, the handset provides access to exclusive content such as Xolo Play Zone to download and play from great collection of HD games. To render a spectacular audio experience, there are dual speakers with DTS Surround sound. To ensure faster file sharing, the handset comes packed with Hotknot feature that can transfer data between two devices at five times faster speed than Bluetooth.


The Xolo Play 8X-1100 with its high quality mobile photography and gaming aspects will be a tough challenger to the Xiaomi Redmi Note, Gionee Elife E7, Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus and others.
