We have reviewed a number of Xolo smartphones in the recent past and have been quite impressed. The company is clearly trying to break away from the general perception that Indian brands only sell cheap, low-quality products that can be dumped into the market with zero actual effort. Of course Xolo phones are manufactured in China just like all others are, but you can generally expect better looks, build quality and hardware than you'd get from other brands.

Xolo has taken the next step in its journey of differentiation by developing its own Android software overlay. All the major Android players, from global giants Samsung, Sony and LG to Chinese upstarts Lenovo, Gionee, Oppo and Xiaomi have their own custom Android skins, and now Xolo has decided it's time to join the club.

Xolo 8X-1000 Summary

Xolo has always tried to differentiate itself from other Indian brands by not cutting corners in a race to the bottom of the price ladder. Its phones have generally been of decent quality, and now the company has developed its own custom Android UI along the lines of Samsung, Sony, LG and other multinationals. Hive UI's look is very modern and there are lots of neat features, but it is not without its quirks. Software aside, the Xolo 8X-1000 also looks great and has a very good camera. However, poor battery life and average performance work against it. We like what the company has come up with and hope to see a refined version in the future.

  • good smart phone
    Manish Kumar Rai (Sep 29, 2019) on Flipkart
    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. Xolo says the device is protected by Asahi Dragontrail glass over the screen as well as Gorilla Glass 3, presumably on the rear. Specifications and software The Xolo 8X-1000 is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6592M processor running at 1.4GHz with integrated Mali-450 MP4 graphics. There's 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage space. The 5-inch screen has a decent resolution of 720x1280. There's an 8-megapixel camera on the rear and a 2-megapixel one in front. Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi b/g/n are supported, along with the usual proximity sensor, ambient light sensor and accelerometer. So its a good smart phone with respect to pricing , specification and performance.

  • Hive is good.. Again surprised by Xolo
    Neel Das (Sep 29, 2019) on Flipkart
    Finally I bought this phone on Sept 8,2014 I have already used Xolo's many mobile phones.I think I have used almost every mobile phones by Xolo.I surprised every time .The way they created their position in a terrific competitive market that is excellent. Now talking about Hive 8x-1000. U all know the specifications very well that's y am not repeating. This is one of the finest phone I have ever used.Sony to Samsung to Nokia to Mixromax ,I have used bunch of mobile phone in my life.Am telling u this is great. Looks- Wow. Design-Amazing Built-Brilliant Now talking about software part. Good,light wait,highly customized, u just need to engaged with ur phone for a day to understand how to apply themes & wat exactly Hive is.But its easy.I think it is good but not like a big thing.it's normal cz its just a ui.Xolo marketed this phone with Hive.&that is a technical marketing. But overall its good.ultimately a fresh look Home button & back button is like a dot.so u need to habit of pressing a dot rather a arrow.but looking cool 3 dots . Back panel made by glassso it looks really cool but problem u faced that is fingerprints. U will not get any cover for 8x...so apply a screen protector on the back panel like I did. Camera quality is really great. Talking about processor & all Octa-core processor device - Good for gaming. But think about ur octa core device.y????U guys are complaining about 1920battery... We all know 1920 is not enough but guys & girls this is not possible that u can find everything on a single device.if xolo placemah. 2200mah..then we would say we need 3000...so its normal..& this is normal for every brand's phone Sound quality is decent. I don't know y u guys submitted negative post .its really good out put in speaker as well as in headphone Accessories are poor.Xolo doesnt think about it. Visual- I think they can put 1080p screen...but 720p with a294ppi doesn't disappoint u.if u look on the screen u will feel that it's a 1080p screen.also viewing angles are good. Wat mainly disappoint me that is call quality .it is not good but not so immpressive.but u can manage Overall its a great device .u must think about the price before write something. Its cost around 13000...& u r getting everything wat u want.from looks to performance. Thank You Need (Kolkata)

  • Excellent phone Xolo Hive 8x 1000
    Nikhil Chauhan (Sep 29, 2019) on Flipkart
    Excellent phone, battery is good for a day - contrary to what is being said that it's bad. It's good for a day like any other smartphone. Looks great and premium. Value for money High end features Hive team taking continuous feedback Needs some small functionality tweaks which if Xolo can do regularly, then this phone is going to give other big names a run for their money, and in turn become a flagship model with anyways great already existing features.
