phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 1 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Compact, and relatively easy to use single-handed
  • Decent IPS display
  • Simple, stock Android interface
  • Good speed/performance
  • Decent camera
  • Good audio quality

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Insipid dual-tone design
  • Only gaming related tweak is the presence of an app called Xolo Play Zone, which itself doesn't have a good game collection
  • No special hardware in this phone to earn the special 'Xolo Play' branding
  • Average loudspeaker
  • Average battery life
