Nostalgia hits us hard when we rewind a few years and think about Nokia's attempt to create a mobile phone that could double up as a portable console. The wonky designs notwithstanding, both the Nokia N-Gage and the N-Gage QD were really imaginative products, and we fondly remember sneaking in a few multiplayer FIFA matches between lectures in college.

Moving forward, things have been changing. Smartphones have become several times more powerful, with bigger screens and better connectivity. The need to create separate devices for gaming has almost been eliminated.

Xolo Play 8X-1100 Summary

Touted as a smartphone aimed at gamers, the Xolo Play 8x-1100 and for the most part it does perform surprisingly well. In our testing we noticed that the phone managed to play games like Dead Trigger 2 just fine. However, interested buyers must note that we didn’t like the design of the phone and the battery life is not too great.

  • The best phone for gaming and multimedia...I can bet
    mainak roy (Sep 13, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    First of all,i want to thanx the brand XOLO,who has already proved the excellence of quality build from the other of its class like ,xiaomi,gionee ,micromax and other makers.Now I am coming to the point...the first thing you will be totally impressed about this phone is the super cool display with gorilla glass protection.Super fast performance.The Apps and the graphic intensive games are running without a little lag. The camera performance is stunning both front and rear.Any body will be astonished how an Indian company(though parts imported from china like all brands) is making this superb phone in this price range. the only cons is battery.But now we have power banks,so this is not an issue at all.

  • A Mid-Range Master Class
    Pranoy Bej (Sep 1, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    XOLO a subsidiary of LAVA trying to catch eyes of gamer with gratuitously new mobile named as XOLO Play-Zone aka 8X-1100 with a budget price of 14999. Xolo combined some ideas to this edition of Play mobile. The key specification of this mobile is ANdroid Kitkat(4.4), 720p display, 5.0" IPS LCD screen with 16M colours, 1.7GHz true octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal space. The phone provide premium look so if you want a phone with cool look then it might be the one you looking for. Fist talk about the display. XOLO offers a 5" IPS LCD screen with 720p display with contrast ratio of 294ppi. XOLO put the ambient light sensor for better contrast in viewing under the daylight/outdoor. It also offers CORNING GORILLA GLASS 3 for protection. According to me this is quite good for this range of phones. The user interface will be based on XOLO's newfangled HIVE UI according to the preliminary specification.The HIVE UI offers some decent look and some unparalleled experience in terms of customization. If it comes with HIVE UI then it good for premium look but takes lot of resources. The processor of this model is powered by mediatech true-octa core series processor clocked a 1.7GHZ along with 2GB DDR2 RAM which is as good as to play heavy games like NFS, Modern Combat, Asphalt 8:heat. To turn the heat on to the games it offers the latest MALI-450MP4 GPu clocked at 700MHZ. In addition to that 6-axis motion sensing gyroscope sensor is put for smoother 3D gaming experience. The primary camera is filing as 13 MP AF rear camera with high sensitivity Sony Exmor RS? Sensor which is a successor of Exmor R sensor with sensitivity upgrade. 5 MP front camera with BSI Sensor & 88 degree wide view angle is included as the secondary camera. The rear camera is capable of taking 1080p video and high quality HDR images. The above listed details might pop up a question, is the battery last good? Xolo provide 2100mAh battery in it which is not the best but good and according to me it will last a day for average user and about 8hours for a gaming addicted or internet browsing. The heating problem is often reported from android phones and Google working on it to minimized. The Kitkat based phones heated less than the jelly bean one but the octa-core Mediatech processor may be a hurdle for XOLO to minimize the heat up. The phone fills comfortable in hand with stylish looks, decent camera feature, unparalleled gaming experience make the phone a Mid Range Master Class.

  • BUY XOLO ONLY IF YOU LIKE TO BE INSULTED
    Amit Paliwal (May 21, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    Buy XOLO only if you are willing to be insulted by the crapiest of service center representatives. The company has no respect for its users, and it reflects in the fact that the website displays no contact information through which you could provide feedback about the extremely filthy and crappy treatment jutted out by their horrible service centers. Its not about the money going waste, its about the attitude of the staff. Two specific cases are Ms. Nisha of Sai Communications, Laxio Nagar, New Delhi, who is a lady with a unique ability to use the chociest of abuses, or the service center at Noida who's phobe is never switched on. Buy only if you love to be insulted

  • Xolo Play 8X-1100 heats up and drains battery in few minutes
    Prasad Karnik (May 5, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    My Xolo - model Play 8X-1100, has been submitted for the third time for the same complaint of unusual heating of the handset on date 04.04.2015. ( work order no. 310001268031 ) Major problem of Motherboard replacement was carried out earlier & still the same problem of heating of handset is repeated. During this repairs following more problems are noticed, 1. Battery life has reduced considerable, which earlier showed more than 10 hours talk time has come down to 4 hours or so. ( 60% erosion in capacity due to battery heating with faulty circuit ) 2. Display Screen size has reduced 3. Speaker volume has considerably reduced. 4. Wi-Fi connection drops and I have to make it ON again & again. 5. Screen touch response has slowed down and many times a character/alphabet next to the desired one appears on the text screen. The said handset was purchase on 14.09.2014 and is in warranty period. Considering above repeated problems I request the Xolo management to provide me a Brand New piece and end my agony of sending the handset for repairs again & again. No revert from Xolo on above request. After 27 days, company messaged me that phone is repaired and being sent to local service center in mumbai. Normal repair time is 15 days. I don't want to use faulty phone and seek justice from consumer forum. Company is adamant & we don't get to talk to any xolo management team members. All are blocked at the call center. Don't buy Xolo models as the company is insensitive towards the customers & keeps repairing the phones which are manufactured faulty. My phone so far has been with the company for more than 2 months for repairs on 3 occasions. Prasad Karnik

  • XOLO 8 X 1100
    Jake Jacob (Oct 23, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    This is an affordable phone for those who want a fast phone for gaming. It is lightning fast ..!! Lets look at the Pros and cons of this phone: 1.) The charger is of poor quality with a very short cord and does not fit properly on most Indian power sockets. 2.) The standard flip cover provided with the Phone is WHITE and in dusty Indian conditions it tends to get dirty very soon. The manufacturer would do well to provide optional covers for sale in the open market in dark colours. 3. ) The battery lasts for one day under normal use and conditions. When used for gaming and for browsing on the internet the battery DRAINS VERY FAST...!!! 4.) The more apps and games you install...the faster the battery drains. A 2100 mAH battery is inadequate for an OCTACORE phone. Make sure you buy a Power Bank if you buy this phone...!!! 5.) The rear camera is good for close up photography , but the results for long range photography is very ordinary despite the 13 MP rear camera. 6.) The display quality is good and the screen is Corning Gorilla Glass . 7.) However the display glass smudges easily and fingerprints have to be constantly cleaned and wiped.

  • Xolo Company Cheat with customers
    Amit Monu (Nov 19, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Recently i parched xolo 8x 1100 mobile. When you read specification of this phone or xolo customer care center they said Front flash available in this phone. But front flash not available. I have all voice recording and site snapshot. Now I am going to file a complaint in consumer court against xolo company.
