XOLO Play 8X-1200 - User Reviews

  • this phone is awsome

  • i am using this phone for 1 year, it's working fantastic. in gaming also, serves good, sometimes in heavy gaming ,it heats up but no issue for me. The only disadvange is it is having kitkat version, and no update from xolo till now. recently rooted my phone with kingroot, and performance is improved that surprised me.

  • This phone is heat b cause this is a mettal body N when u a charge this phone u dont use this phone I promise do not complain agin 4 heat I love this phone his camera is very good n only one problem wife network clearly not searching

  • I m using this phone last 7 month .this phone camera is good. Bt wife is not clearly catch network n when u using this phone in charge it was vary hot his body so i tell u do not use this phone using charge n bettery back is good I love this phone

  • Handset getting very hot even normal apps.....worst phone for longlife.......

  • This is very nice phone especially its both back and front camera This phone is with me about 8 months and I fells good by owning this device

  • I use this phone upto 5 month, it has many problems. like batter back up is low, automaticaly switch off, some time service has been not work properly, etc. Plz don't take this phone.

  • I am using this phone from 5 months and it is an excellent device I am facing no prob with this device

  • best phoneeeeeeeeee buy it

  • Seriously... R u using cell only for calling... M using this xolo play 8x 1200 since last yr. N trust me i hv to charge it 2 time per day. N while watching mvi battery will be low after finishing single mvi after full charge. Wifi doesnt catch signals properly. N too much heating issue even after lowering cpu performance in setting.

  • M not agree with this review. Gaming performance is good but mobile heat like a hot French fry. U cant bear it on yr face or ear while some one calls u while u r playing game or while charging. Graphics r good bur wi fi device is very poor. Same goes with battery need to charge 2 to 3 times per day. N dont expect for any update, company policies are only focused on selling.

  • Dont go gor xolo, i hate this cell, using this cell for last 1months. I hate this cell. Nothing good abt hardware n software look like Chinese phone.

  • What a phone !!! Woow . excellent ! Super .I love u xolo .... 2 days battery backup .no tensn of charging ..speechless ...

  • Thanks

  • I want to buy a phone so I am confused about xolo play 8X-1200 , micromax a350 or lenovo vibe x2-ap please anyone help me which phone is good

  • I bought last few month back on this phone.. Every day I facing different kind of issue.. Last I had used xolo q800, that's really good. That's why I goto this company. But am really disappointed. My kind advice when you plan to buy this mobile then please choose other option. Its really not worth on our price.. Camera only advantage on this mobile..

  • Same problem

  • I have recieved a software update buh as soon as i open it ,, the app stops

  • software update is unfortunately stop

  • Bought xolo 8x1200 after a lot of research in Aug2014.Its touch started giving troubles very soon.You enter one thing through keys and it displays other,selecting pics from the lower side of gallery became a task,similarly while selecting refresh option on whatsapp it opened some thing else.Its soft keys became dead may 2015,i.e.in just9 months after purchase.I had to deposit it at a shabby service centre,which has sent it to noida for the change of touch,which will take 15-20 days,Sic,Now i am without a smart phone.I am repenting my decision of buying this phone.

  • just restart the mobile probably it fixes

  • please do not buy the phone heating effect is a lot and battery packup is worst that i have everseen front cam is good rather than back.

  • auto rotation is not working in my phone. is there anything I must do to enable it?

  • please dont buy this phone cause tej is buying IT

  • Anyone is receiving any updates??? 5.0 or anything??

  • Can Support OTG and works Good.

  • Still there is no updates on this device i think!

  • You received System Updates ?? I have Android 4.4.2 kernel 3.4.67 and it says No Updates.

  • I received a update but that was error I can't understand what going in my phone

  • Good phone

  • this is menufactured by chines company

  • Bad phone don't purchased it. Batrery & heating broblem are big...... Only 5 mins of used using 30% battery down....

  • Anyone is receiving any updates??? 5.0 or anything??

  • Me too having three colour LED.

  • i am using this phone for 3 months now,excellent product from xolo,everything works alright, i appreciate what xolo as a brand is able to produce on daily basis. listing below the highlights pros 1.good built and feel to the device. 2.good front cam and completely acceptable 13mp rear cam. 3.good for gaming and daily multitasking with an octacore clocked at 2ghz with 2gb memory. 4.good amount of storage capacity as internal. 5.phone charges at good speed. cons- 1.battery has to standout as a big con for this flagship model from xolo,if you are a data user on 3g ,it just can handle between 60-90 mins top,its a no match for the price paid for the device and the device configuration. 2.picture quality is excellent but feels to be on the brighter side,true color seems to missing out or it must have something to do with the contrast,gamma,hue setting. 3.music quality with stock earphone is disappointing. 4.non removable battery. 5.rom build is not acceptable at all for something which you have priced above all of your product,needed it to be a lot optimized with good features and a customized launcher,what is hive all about? well these are some pointers i can come up with while i post,i have been xolo loyalist for 3 years now,have purchased quite a few of them. xolo is amazing in coming out with exciting products now and then. suggestion to xolo - being the flagship model of xolo i expect some updates and changes for the good of xolo play 8x - 1200. honest review thx

  • does this handset support 3D games

  • there is no split to install applications and data unlike micromax knight. all 28 gb usable memory can be used for apps.

  • Yes, the battery is a big issue when playing games or the camera. Also face heating issue when games and camera on.

  • I am using this phone for the past 6 months now. Overall, this phone is good but there are some performance issues. Display and camera: The display at 441 ppi is perfect and the camera quality is excellent too. The front camera is good for selfies; however, there is an issue with shots taken at an angle. Battery and heating: The battery when calling and when the phone is not is use is brilliant. But for camera usage and gaming, the battery performs poorly, and will go from 100 to 0 in less than 45 mins. (continuous usage). Network: You will get perfect 3G network is most places; however, at some premises, the network is a major challenge. I have tried the phone with Airtel as well as Vodafone sims and same issue. Design: While this is is purely a preference issue, I can guarantee that the phone is sleek. but the screen to body ratio could be better; especially the bottom part of the phone. If the network and heating issue is fixed, this phone is a great buy at the price it is offered today.

  • Well its been more than a month that I have used this phone. The phone is pretty great. Working is good it doesn't lack. But that means when using heavy apps it consumes more battery. However "Xolo Power" app is pretty great, it tells you the exact temp. of the phone be it 19 C or 42 C. Also "Xolo Secure" app is also good.

  • yes

  • Can anyone tell me the Fps of this phone in nenamark and antutu.

  • Friends I'm using this phone for last 1 month. It's superb, awesome and whatever you say. The only con. of the phone is battery. As per the hardware spec. the phone is a battery killer. Except that not only me but none of the users of this phone can't complain about anything else.

  • Sir, how much does the battery last when phone is used for normal use without gaming ?? does phone get heated when not gaming also ?? please tell me fast, buying

  • Does it have front flash, removable battery

  • Hi, this is Shashank Bhalerao. I recently bought a XOLO PLAY 8X 1200 mobile phone from a mobile dealer at Borivali on 3/10/14. The sole reason why I bought a Xolo mobile phone was because the company in promotion of this particular mobile handset had stated that it had a Octacore processor, and that its other features were far superior in comparison to mobiles in similar segment. The company however conveniently concealed that none of these features functioned effectively within anatomy of their mobile phones. On first time use the mobile started displaying issues such as fast battery discharge, mobile being hung up, failure to run pre installed apps.... Since being put to use the handset would require long hours of battery charging however, once being fully charged the battery would exhaust within 2 - 3 hours. Also, there was an extensive heating problem when used continuously for more than 10-15 minutes. As these issues arose within first week of use, I immediately contacted their service center. But to further aggravate my plight, their service executive stated that it would take about 30 - 45 days to rectify the defect and that the mobile was required to be sent to their only service and repair center in India at Noida. Despite having spent crores of rupees on their brand promotion and marketing, the company did not find necessary to have one Repair and Service center in a metro like Mumbai, which has its largest customer base.

But it has a strong battery backup and u can pay games for 3 1/2 hr continuously.... I m talking about high end games like real racing etc.... Some time it hangs for a min while calling... The phone is good... I hope q3000 would have over come the disadvantage solo 2500 has... I'm planning to buy Xolo 8x-1200
