The handset gets a huge boost from its omnipotent battery which obviously is the smartphone’s most noteworthy feature. Apart from that, the Xolo Era 4K doesn’t have any groundbreaking or innovative attribute that has not been offered before.
Specifications – Xolo Era 4K
At the core of Xolo Era 4K is its 5-inch HD screen that exploits full lamination IPS display technology that translates into an unparalleled viewing experience every time you enjoy a movie or browse through photo albums. The UI gets its protection from a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 encasing that buffers the screen against unintentional or accidental bumps, grazes and scratches. Additionally, the ‘native damage resistance’ imparts an extraordinary toughness to the panel. A MediaTek MT6735P CPU that clocks a speed of 1GHz gets a boost up from 2 gigabytes of RAM enabling you to accomplish your tasks with ease and convenience.
The phone is powered by the Android 5.1 OS. An internal storage of 8 GB is of course nothing to write home about but the fact that the capacity can be expanded to 32 GB with a microSD card certainly offers you a lot more archiving room.
