Let your creativity run wild

from The Indian Express

At the moment the Hive platform and and Xolo 8X-1000 phone are purely for people who want to stand out from the crowd and show that they are different. But if the first version in an indicator, Hive has the potential to develop into one of the better Android-based operating systems available in the market. But this if you like to be different and can live with being so.

A fresh new face

from NDTV

It's clear that a lot of effort and even some original thought has gone into the Hive UI. Considering this is the company's first release, it's very polished and no major features are missing. We hope to see regular updates that improve usability and flexibility. A few months from now users might prefer stock Android L to any custom skin, so it will be interesting to see how Xolo evolves the Hive UI from here.

The 8X-1000 seems to be targeted at style-conscious users who like to stand out and are more concerned with features than performance. There are of course things about it we'd like to change, but again, it's a sign that the company is moving in a good direction. We've said before that Xolo stands out from the crowd of Indian smartphone brands, and now with this new combination of hardware and software, it's almost ready to leave them all behind in the dust.

This is not the phone to buy if you're concerned about battery life or raw performance, but it does come across as a viable alternative to similarly priced models from Gionee, Oppo, Lenovo and other value-oriented brands.
