Starting with the front part here we get a 13-megapixel Camera which captures some decent shots, beside it a front flash which works quite well, an earpiece and different sensors. There is no LED notification placed in the device. Coming below we get 5” HD Display, which is a HD display.

Coming to the bottom portion of the phone here we get a Micro USB port, beside it dual speaker grill out of which the left is having a primary MIC in it and another right grill is having a actual speaker in it. The speaker is quite loud too. The Phone is not having fast charging and only support normal 5 Volts at 1 Amp charging speed.
Turning to the top, we get a 3.5mm audio jack, rest nothing much which needs to be mentioned over here.
Turning to the right, here we get Volume rockers and power lock key and gives quite hap-tic feedback. On left side we get nothing.
Finally coming to the back panel of the phone here we get 8-megapixel camera, beside that a LED flash, below that a Fingerprint sensor which really works pretty fast. Below that we get XOLO branding. Overall the built of the design is made up of High quality rubber finish plastic.
We can also remove the back panel of the phone. Under-hood we get a large 3000 mAh battery. We also get Dual Nano Sim support and a dedicated Mirco SD card support, that can be expanded to up to 32 GB. For normal user and selfie centric consumer under the budget of Rs. 7,000, this can be a choice for them. The device is available at the price of Rs. 6,499.
Xolo Era 2V comes with a 5-inch HD with a resolution of 720 x 1280. The Display colors are sharp tone and watching movies, and playing games look great. The Sunlight legibility is also good because of its really great brightness. When we compare the brightness with other budget-oriented phones, this device is good in price.
Viewing Angle is good, and blacks are decent enough. While watching movies from odd angle won’t affect you in any way. Overall no complaints with the display.
The phone comes with Meditek MT6737 processor which features a 2 GB Ram. This combo makes it a decent purchase at this price. Out of 16 GB of internal storage, you get about 11 GB free after that also you can expand it to up-to 32 GB as the phone support dedicated tray for SD Card.
We get Antutu Score of 28853 and certain other scores are also decent. To low down the price they have remove some of the sensors from the phone which are required. Like there is no Orientation sensor, no Gyroscope, no Magnetic sensors which are somewhat useful in most of the apps like maps and at the time of navigation.
Coming to the gaming part, we can play normal and not any high ends games. If we try to install any heavy game we need to low down the graphics part as it shows frame drops and lag. Normal games can be played and Asphalt 8 can also be played at very low settings with no frame drops. In medium or high setting Asphalt 8 shows frame drops.
Attaching the camera samples which will help you know to know more about it. We can only record videos at 720p and there is no Pro mode available in the phone.
Xolo Era 2V is loaded with Android Nougat 7.0 out of the box and soon might get updated to Android 8 no confirmation about it yet. With 2 GB RAM the UI works well as it came up with stock android. The device can handle even very normal multitasking on the phone due to stock android they are using. The software is loaded with negligible bloatware which we can always be uninstall same like other devices. They have tried to optimized the UI quite well. Rest, Everything will work fine for normal users.
Coming to battery part of the phone which is its 3000 mAh Battery which works really well. It took me approximately about 3 Hours to charge from 0 to 100% using its default charger. Battery usage of the device is good. It will easily going to last you more than a day because of good software optimization and small display size. Rest all what we can expect from it.
Coming to the battery performance, on high usage it will easily last you for a day and on normal usage it will easily last you for more then a day.
If you are selfie centric person and very nominal user then device will work for you.
