Summary: One of the first mid range handsets to be equipped with a Tegra 3 processor, the Xolo Play T1000 brings with it a promise of high end gaming capabilities. Xolo claims it to be an overall competitive device which should provide some much needed competition in this space.
Conclusion: The XOLO Play's USP is gaming, and it does very well in that area. It's a good all-round smartphone even when you are not gaming. The NVIDIA Tegra 3 may not be the latest chipset in the market, but it let's you enjoy all the latest Android games, and at a good price point.
