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...

Bogged down by sluggish performance and a lacklustre UI, the Nokia X only disappoints.

Nokia X review: Under cover

 

The Nokia X is one of the Finns' first ever smartphones to run Android and yet it may not be the Android phone you've been looking for. Perhaps you've been looking in the wrong place? Nokia will certainly like you to think so. To be honest though -...

Quad-band GSM, GPRS, EDGE ; Dual-band 3G with HSPA ; Optional dual-SIM support, dual standby ; Nokia X software platform 1.0, based on the Android Open Source Project ; 4" IPS LCD WVGA capacitive touchscreen, ~233 ppi ; 1.0 GHz dual-core Cortex-A5...

No Google services (Play, Gmail, Maps, Calendar, Drive), you can't even sync contacts ; Fixed-focus camera ; No front camera ; Budget-grade hardware may result in system bottlenecks ; No smart dialing ; No document reader

There we go, the first Android smartphone by the company, which was never going to have anything to do with Android. Anyone surprised that the Nokia X has nothing to do with droids as we know them? Good. Thought so.

Nokia X Review

 

We all finally have the opportunity to see what Nokia hardware powered by Android feels like. With its X-line, Nokia surprised many by finally seeing fit to experiment with Android, though hardheaded as the company is, this is still a fork of the...

Solid build ; Removable battery and slots for microSD and two SIM cards ; Compatibility with most Android apps (sideloaded)

Limited app ecosystem – no Google Play Store ; Despite its commendable build, the Nokia X feels a little bit too much like a toy ; Performance is not the X's strongest suite ; Web browsing is frustrating due to delays in input responsiveness ; Overall,...

Due to its pricing, the Nokia X can be both an acceptable purchase, or a completely unfounded one, depending on where it is you call home. In the States, for example, Nokia sells the X through Amazon for anywhere between $145 to $170. At this price,...

Nokia X review: Nokia meets Android

 

Does Nokia's legendary build quality, optics, and overall robustness translate to its Android phones? Or is the X line too little too late? We answer these questions in our Nokia X review.

So, there you have it, an in-depth look at the Nokia X, the Finnish company’s first entry into the Android space. It’s a phone that is definitely geared towards emerging markets, with its relatively low-end specs, and, although it’s powered by Android,...

Microsoft tries to own all the Google juice

Strong build quality ; Low cost ; Dual SIM flexibility

Weak performance ; Dim display ; Poor battery endurance

To put it simply, the Nokia X is very far from the best smartphone out there. It runs on an outdated version of Android with a slow and clunky, albeit quite attractive Nokia made interface on top. The camera is extremely basic and its battery endurance...

Hands on: Nokia X+ review

 

A little more RAM than one brother, a little less screen than the other

Vibrant, responsive screen ; Pleasant user experience ; Decent build quality

Chunky appearance ; Performance can slow when multi-tasking ; Lack of Google Play apps

Nokia X review: Hands-on

 

An Android phone that looks like a Windows phone but isn't? Nokia's latest looks a little confusing. Check out our Nokia X hands-on review

The Nokia X is a neat little phone with the brand's colourful design taking centre stage. The idea of a Windows-influenced Android skin that uses Microsoft's storage and Nokia's content store is a strange one, with Nokia seemingly trying to distance...

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.
