Nokia X

 

Rumors of Nokia making an Android smartphone had been churning for a long time. Finally, at Mobile World Congress in March, the Finnish company unveiled a new range of phones, the X, X+ and XL , aimed at those who can't afford hundreds of dollars or...

The Nokia X is as well built as you'd expect from this company, and its battery easily lasts for a day and a half. The dual-SIM feature can be useful.

This low-end phone is sluggish and at times, responds very slowly to your touch. The ugly UI doesn't help much with the user experience either. You'll need to do some work importing your contacts if they're stored in the cloud, and the Nokia Store...

Hands-on at MWC 2014: Nokia's first Android phone is very cheap and moderately cheerful

The Nokia X is most exciting because of its Android software. However, it's the design and hardware we like most here, as the limited app support and potentially niggly software need a bit of time to develop.
