Are you looking to buy a smartphone, but want a device that will not burn a hole through your wallet? The budget smartphone market has a wide variety to choose from. The latest addition to the list is the Xolo Era 1X phone. The latest offering from the Indian phone manufacturing company was launched a few weeks ago. Having receiving much praise for the features delivered at this price point, we decided it was worth reviewing the device.

With a touchscreen display of 5 inches, this smartphone has a screen resolution of 1280 px by 720 px. While the quality is not on par with devices that offer full-HD screens, the pixel density of 294 ppi delivers a good clarity with sharp colours.

Fitted with a Spreadtrum SC9832A quad-core processor with a speed of 1.3 GHz, this phone is fast enough for you to manage some light multitasking. One feature that is somewhat disappointing is the RAM which is of only 1GB. This means that you will not be able to play any heavy games at all. Also opening several applications at once is sure to slow down your device.

While the Xolo Era 1X is only available with an inbuilt storage capacity of 8GB, the device memory can be expanded using a microSD card of up to 32GB. This is enough for you to comfortably store all your images, videos and even some movies.

Fitted with a rear primary camera of 8 megapixels, this phone has an LED flash fitted on both the back and the front of the phone. The front camera which is of 5 megapixels, has a bit of noise and lag when capturing images. So trying to take photos in low light settings will only yield poor results.

The Era 1X is offered with Android’s Marshmallow OS pre-installed, and is packed with a battery that has a capacity of 2500mAh. This means that you will receive a battery life of approximately 15 hours. So you may find that you need to recharge your phone during the day.

There are a number of sensors built into the phone including a proximity sensor, an accelerometer and an ambient light sensor. Connectivity options for this device include GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 3G and 4G too.

Available in black and gold, the phone has a smooth body with a textured back panel. This gives it a more premium look that you generally do not expect in a budget gadget. This pocket-friendly device is available for Rs. 4,999 approximately.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
