About Nokia X Dual Sim:
Nokia has made a lot of buzz by launching Android Phones at the Mobile World Congress 2014. The Finnish firm launched 3 Android phones: Nokia X, X+ & XL. These phones run Android but not the way we’ve been used to. These phones are targeting developing nations like India & can be a tough competition for cheap Android phones. The Nokia X is most economical of the 3. What’s new about this X series? Let’s see in our short review.
Nokia X series’ operating system is what that has earned all that attention for the Microsoft owned company. All the 3 phones of the X series run on Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean). These are based on Nokia X Software Platform which is build on Android Open Source Project (AOSP). The new Nokia X Software Platform looks like a fusion of Android & Windows. It’s based on Android but the interface doesn’t look like Android at all. Instead, it’s more reminiscent to Windows Phone 8. This new version of Android is heavily skinned & all the 3 phones of the X series run on Nokia’s custom version of Android. One can easily get confused that it’s a Windows Phone just by looking at it. Windows Live Tiles have replaced the traditional Android home screen. There’s freedom to resize & reorder these tiles according to your preferences. Fast lane, a feature we’ve previously seen in Nokia Asha series, is the second screen here. It gives you a quick access to recently used apps. All the 3 phones of the X series give you access to not only Android apps but also to Microsoft apps like Skype & Outlook. You get these apps pre-installed along with Nokia’s Mix Radio & Here Maps. But you may miss Google’s Play store. Yes, the Nokia X, X+ & XL support Android apps but you can’t get them from Google play store. Instead, you’ll have to look for them in Nokia’s own store. If you don’t get the desired app at Nokia’s store, you’ve the freedom to get them from 3rd party app stores. Nokia has also allowed side-loading of apps. This new UI seems interesting & it has the potential to break the grounds for the Microsoft owned company in the Android world.
Build & Design:
Nokia has opted for the same design strategy in X series that it has been recently using in Lumia phones. Nokia X & X+ quite look alike. It has the mono body design dimensioning 115.5x63x10.4 mm. At 128 gm it doesn’t feel bulky at all. The edges are squared-off. The polycarbonate body is a little chunky, but it doesn’t feel cheap at all. In fact, it gives much more classy feel than you’ll expect from a phone at this price. It has got a soft rubbery touch at the rear. It comes in 6 vibrant colours & you can also swap the back for a little versatility in look or for just matching the device with your outfit. Anyway, it’s good to have the option to change the colour of your phone. Build quality of Nokia X is rock solid like other Nokia handsets.
Display seems to be on a little down side for Nokia X. it hosts a 4 inch capacitive touchscreen hosting 16M colours. The maximum resolution is 480x800p & the pixel density rests at 233 ppi. One good thing is Nokia has used IPS panel which is quite rare for phones at this price. Thanks to the IPS panel, the display is bright & has good contrast. There isn’t any difference in the display of Nokia X & X+.
Nokia X is a dual-SIM phone. It is 3G enabled & has Wi-Fi & Bluetooth on board. It can also double as Wi-Fi hotspot. You can also connect it to a computer with the help of a micro USB cable.
All 3 phones of X series are powered by 1 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. There isn’t any difference in the Graphical Processing Unit of the devices as well. They all have an Adreno 203 chip for processing graphics. The only thing that makes a difference in the performance of the 3 handsets is RAM. X has got 512 MB of RAM, while its other 2 siblings have 768 MB RAM. Nokia X performs quite good in normal regular use but can stutter if you throw some heavy task at it, but that’s the case with the phones in this price range.
The camera unit of Nokia X & X+ is exactly the same. Both these phones sport a 3 MP snapper. There is no LED flash & front-facing camera but you’ve to give up something for the price. It produces decent images, good enough for sharing on the internet. Colours come out natural. You also get features like Panaroma & face detection. You can record videos at 480p max. at speed of 30 fps.
Nokia X is targeting emerging markets (their lower end, to be precise) & it has the potential to find it’s ground there. It’s UI is something new & giving access over both, Android & Windows apps at this price is gonna be the deal maker for it.
