Overall: Xolo Play 8X-1100 and Canvas Nitro have a lot of things in common and this small review will give you a good idea about what you can expect from these devices.
# Similarities between Canvas Nitro and Play 8X-1100
Both Canvas Nitro and 8X-1100 has the same octacore chipset (MT6592w) and same amount of Ram (2GB) .The rear camera is made of a 13MP Sony Sensor which performs quite well. Both have a 5inch 720P IPS screen on the front with good viewing angles. Overall performance of these devices are almost identical. Its fast.
# Now lets talk about some differences between these octacore devices.
8X-1100 gives you 16GB internal storage + a micro sdcard slot. It also supports OTG which allows you to plugin pendrives using an OTG Cable (priovided in the box). On the other hand Canvas Nitro only has 8GB internal storage. It does come with an sdcard slot,but strangely doesn't have OTG support. One other main difference is the battery- Canvas Nitro comes on top here as it packs a 2500mAh battery compared to a smaller 2100mAh one on the 8X-1100.
Play 8X-1100 comes with a lot more sensors (Gyroscope,Magnetometer,Accelerometer,Ambient light sensor,Proximity sensor,Hall Effect sensor) than Canvas Nitro (Gravity , Light, Proximity Sensor). One other big advantage 8x1100 has over Nitro is that it comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
If you compare the overall look of the device, Xolo 8x-1100 comes on the top as it comes with an attractive black and white combination. You don't get a leather back though,like you get on Canvas Nitro.
Even though both have the same Sony Sensor at the back, the front camera is different. Canvas Nitro has a 75 degree wide angle BSI sensor, while 8X1100 comes with an 88 degree wide angle 5MP BSI camera.
8X1100 has DTS on board with Dual speakers which is always a nice thing to have. Nitro doesn't come with dual speakers or DTS on board.
Micromax has made a lot of software additions to the stock Android Kitkat, like a blinkfeed like news app on the home screen,some cool gestures and widgets etc. Xolo 8X-1100 on the other hand comes with a close to stock Android experience. The flipcase provided in the box has some cool features. Note that Xolo's Hive UI is not available for this device and there is no official word from them yet whether this will get a HIVEInside update.
Nitro - No OTG Support and only 8GB Internal Memory.
8x1100 - Smaller Battery, 2100mAh.
Neither Micromax Nor Xolo is promising Android L update.
Overall both are good devices to own. If you prefer better battery backup, i would suggest to get Canvas Nitro. If you prefer more features like a Gorilla glass,better looks,more internal memory,more sensors,DTS and OTG support, 8X-1100 is far better device to own.
