The XOLO Era 1X Pro was launched in India and it comes for the price tag of Rs. 5,777. Here is the Era 1X Pro review that help you decided if you want to buy or ignore this handset. This is Spreadtrum quad core powered.

XOLO Era 1X Pro comes with dual SIM slots with 4G VoLTE support. The screen quality is good, comes with 720p resolution and performance is decent enough considering the Spreadtrum quad core chipset that it houses.

Camera quality is average and when it comes to gaming, the chipset is not that powerful games are playable in medium to very low quality mode. The 2500 mAh battery does a decent job. The big issue with this handset is the price.

XOLO Era 1X Pro  Gaming Review

Check the video review I played Asphalt 8, game lags in high quality mode, decent in Medium quality mode and works best in very low quality mode. This handset is not for gaming users.

Rear Camera : 8MP, auto focus, flash, f/2.4
Front Camera : 5MP, fixed focus, f/2.2

Camera quality is okay just average. Night / low light shots are not that great. Front camera is okay, comes with dual LED flash and FHD video recording is good enough for sharing online.
