In the box for the XOLO Era 4K, you find a quick start guide, a warranty information booklet, a wall charger, a microUSB cable for charging and data sync, a pair of headphones, and a screen protector to put on the display of your device. It is good of XOLO to include the headphones and the screen protector inside the box itself because at times people have to hunt shops to find a screen protector for their smartphone.

Gaming Performance

The XOLO Era 4K comes packed with a MediaTek processor clocked at 1GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM. On the storage side of things, the phone has 8GB of internal storage, though out of this 8GB, only about 2.6GB of storage is available for the user to use. The battery on the XOLO Era 4K is a massive 4000mAh, but before making any claims about the phone, I will have to test the phone for a longer period of time.

For gaming, I installed Dead Trigger 2 and Modern Combat 5 on the smartphone and played both of them. The phone did not lag when playing Dead Trigger 2 as such, gameplay was smooth but I noticed that the touch response was struggling a bit in the middle. I switched to Modern Combat 5 and played it for almost half an hour, surprisingly there was no lag but the game felt very slow from the very beginning and I was not able to point the aim with ease. Gaming on this device is good for mediocre level games.

The XOLO Era 4K is definitely a decent phone for the price at which it is offered, but there are powerful phones in the market that are priced similar to this phone. Overall, by the first impressions, the phone looks decent and the performance is also good for the price. I’ll try and use the device for a longer period of time and then decide how the phone is.
