Xolo Play 8X-1000 - Expert Reviews


Xolo is rising fast in the Indian market and is quickly making an impression among the young Indian audience through its gamer friendly specifications. What has been impressive about Xolo devices is their aesthetics and panache for high-end specs, all at a very economical price. The company has done very well to pip Karbonn as one of the most promising smartphone manufacturing firms in India. Micromax has still managed to hold on to the top spot among the Indian smartphone makers, but Xolo is slowly catching up and making its mark through smart marketing strategy. Xolo also happens to be one of the very few companies that has started catering to the audience that is big on playing games and thus, is designing its hardware accordingly. Xolo Play 8X 1000 is another smartphone from the company that works on the same principle by featuring a hulking hardware that comprises of an octa-core MediaTek processor and 2GB of RAM.

With the given hardware, users should not have any qualms about  the gadget’s ability to handle high-end games. The display size is just about right at 5 inches, which is LCD in nature while its resolution is about 720 by 1280 pixels, which is again quite decent although not top notch. Although, the hardware seems to be ready for handling the games and apps for the user, the resources have to be available as well and with Android KitKat 4.4 OS under its belt, there is a huge domain of games and apps for the user to pick his or her selection from. The gadget is the first handset by Xolo that would feature Hive User Interface. Although much detail about the same is not available, the gadget's new UI would provide a new launcher, themes, media centre, lock screen, chameleon widget and a new forum called connect.  

The smartphone is also tilted towards utility with the presence of dual SIM, thus allowing users to enjoy two tariff plans in the same device. The camera section includes an 8 megapixels primary rear camera and a 2 megapixels secondary front camera, which keeps things on track by matching industry benchmarks and keeping the overall scheme of things in place. Although the device looks good, we have to say that we have come across better Xolo devices and Xolo Play 8X-1000 is certainly not the prettiest handset we have come across. The smartphone has a length of 139.9mm, breadth of 70.2mm and thickness of 8.5mm. It is available in the single color of Black and holds a 2100mAh standard lithium-ion battery.

Operating system and UI

The display size of Xolo Play 8X-1000 is 5 inches as the HD IPS LCD display provides a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. The screen is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology, which ensures the prevention of inadvertant scratches and other related hazards to a certain extent. The responsiveness of  Xolo devices have been quite fast in the past and with Xolo Play 8X-1000 built for games via heavy hardware, we can expect similar results too.

Other Features

The sound quality is always better with earphones for any smartphone and with Xolo Play 8X-1000 too, users get better bass and treble quality although the same deteriorates at a higher volume. Xolo Play 8X-1000 comes with a video player as well, which means that plenty of HD movies can be watched on its 5 inches screen. Various formats are compatible to the music and video player of the gadget.


The 8 megapixels primary rear camera of Xolo Play 8X-1000 should perform as good as the ones we have seen in the past from the Q series of Xolo models. We can bank on the color accuracy and saturation of Xolo devices and with a resolution of 3264 by 2448 pixels, the reviewed device does give substantial clarity. The video player in Xolo Play 8X-1000 is also pretty good. LED flash, Geo-tagging and auto focus are the high profile features that any photography lover would enjoy. There is a secondary camera of 2 megapixels, which is well equipped to provide video calling facilities and enable clicking of selfies.


The internet is active and swift with Xolo Play 8X-1000 allowing faster browsing speed for high buffering websites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube while downloading also becomes pacy and agile. The tethering component of the smartphone includes Wi-Fi hot spot whereas other conventional tools comprise of GPRS, EDGE, HTML5 browser and Wi-Fi.


The chances of the internal memory getting exhausted soon are less in Xolo Play 8X-1000, for it comes with 8GB of ROM. Even though around 5GB would be available to start with, a healthy amount of data can be kept in the gadget before the user is forced to turn to the microSD card slot for expansion of the external memory. The external card slot for the smartphone has a 32GB limit. RAM is of a beefy 2GB, which should keep things fast for the hardware of the smartphone. 

Other Features

There are a variety of games and applications that can be enjoyed by the users of Xolo Play 8X-1000 mobile including Shadow Fight 2, Run Like Hell, Temple Run, Virtual Table Tennis etc. There are some popular apps that can be used by the user as well including fitness apps like Daily Workouts, Perfect body or utility apps like AppLock, Folder locker etc. The smartphone runs on Android KitKat 4.4 OS, which makes it compatible with almost any game and app that the Android world has to offer.


There are no accurate numbers available for the talktime and standby time delivered by Xolo Play 8X-1000 through its 2100mAh standard lithium-ion battery but around 8 hours should be derived for the talktime. The removable battery can also sustain the smartphone for multimedia usage and multitasking. 


The 2G GSM network of the smartphone has compatibility with 900 and 1800MHz frequencies whereas the 3G SIM supports frequencies of 1900 and 2100MHz. The gadget features USB port and Bluetooth for data exchanging activities while the Internet section is taken care of by the likes of GPRS, EDGE, HTML5 browser and Wi-Fi.

Other Features

Xolo Play 8X-1000 looks like a great prospect, but another device that has been setting the market on fire is Xiaomi Mi-3. Xolo Play 8X-1000 has a 5 inches display just like the screen size offered by Xiaomi Mi3 but there is a massive gap as far as the pixel density is concerned with a colossal 441ppi for the latter. Xolo Play 8X-1000 comes with HD IPS display as compared to the capacitive IPS LCD display of Xiaomi Mi3. Xiaomi Mi3 comes with a 2.3GHz quad-core processor whereas Xolo Play 8X-1000 features a MediaTek octa-core processor. RAM is 2GB with both the devices. Xiaomi Mi3 comes in two memory versions of 16GB and 64GB while it lacks a microSD card slot. However, Xolo Play 8X-1000 does feature a microSD card slot but it has a single 8GB internal memory variant. Xiaomi Mi3 comes with Android Jelly Bean 4.3 operating system but can be upgraded to Android KitKat 4.4.2 software platform, which happens to be slightly more updated than the Android KitKat 4.4 operating system of Xolo Play 8X-1000.

In the camera section, Xolo Play 8X-1000 features a 2 megapixels secondary camera, which is equally strong as the 2 megapixels secondary camera of Xiaomi Mi3 but there is quite a bit of difference in the primary cameras for both the smartphones. Xolo Play 8X-1000 comes with an 8 megapixels primary camera, whereas the primary camera of Xiaomi Mi3 is much more powerful at 13 megapixels. Also, the standard lithium-ion battery of 3050mAh for Xiaomi Mi3 overhauls the 2100mAh standard lithium-ion battery of Xolo Play 8X-1000 by a substantial margin.

Other Features

August 4, 2014: Xolo is all set to launch its first Hive UI featuring handset that is powered by some serious hardware including an octa-core processor and 2GB of RAM. Dubbed as Xolo Play 8X-1000, the device is supposed to be the new flagship model for the firm and would bring with it new widgets, launchers, themes, etc. The smartphone would run on Android KitKat 4.4 operating system and features a formidable line up for the camera department as well that holds 8 megapixels for the rear shutter and 2 megapixels for the front shutter.

by manish kumar rai on 2014-09-05

Look and feel: At first Glance,the 8x-1000 looks like a solid black slab with almost no markings of any kind.The front and rear are shiny, reflective and immensely easy to smudge up with fingerprints.
