Nokia x slideshow review Nokia x slideshow review Presentation Transcript

  • Nokia X Review in pictures
  • Brings the X factor • The first device from Nokia that runs Android • Part of the Nokia X family, with the X+ and the XL as its siblings • Available in a riot of bright hues, along with the staple black or white • Boasts the typically solid Nokia build
  • Specs you wouldn’t like to flaunt • Compact and easy to hold • 4-inch, 480 x 800 display • 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor • 512MB of RAM and 4GB storage, microSD slot • 3-megapixel fixed focus shooter • Dual-SIM support
  • Display isn’t too bad, really • The 4-inch IPS screen offers a pixel density of 233ppi • Good viewing angles but sunlight legibility isn’t its strong point • Produces crisp and vibrant colours • Ample contrast and brightness levels
  • Let’s not talk about the cam • 3-meg, fixed-focus shooter takes you back in time • No front shooter for selfies, bummer • Camera app is basic, but gives you control over white balance and exposure • Usable results as long as lighting is good, but don’t expect wonders
  • Android? Where? • Runs Android AOSP 4.1.2 • Custom interface with no resemblance to Android • Just one start screen where all apps appear. It supports widgets and custom folders though • Only a single key below the screen, takes you one screen back or jumps to the home screen by long-pressing • All notifications appear on the FastLane screen, accessible by swiping sideways
  • No Google on Android • The Nokia X doesn’t support Google services, which means no Play Store, no native Gmail app, no Google maps, no Hangouts and no Google Now • Android apps are available through Nokia’s Store • You can use third-party app stores like 1Mobile Market or Aptoide in case you can’t find what you’re looking for • Sideloading Android APKs is possible too
  • Microsoft and Nokia get to play instead • Search powered by Bing • Here Maps handle location and navigation. Offline navigation provided free for one country • Nokia’s MixRadio for music streaming, allows four offline mixes at a time, each for a period of 30 days • Preloaded apps include BBM, Facebook, Twitter, Opera and a host of games
  • Different in usage as compared to a regular ‘droid • No proper multitasking • All notifications displayed on the FastLane screen • If you’re an Android user, you may miss notifications appearing on the status bar
  • Hackery can get the job done • Custom launchers easy to install, but don’t deliver notifications • If you’re prepared to risk voiding warranty and possible bricking, rooting allows you to run the full suite of Google services, including the Play Store
  • Performance hiccups exist, but smooth for basics • Dual-core Snapdragon chip running at 1GHz and 512MB of RAM handle routine tasks well, though there’s a bit of lag, and intensive games like Riptide GP2 stutter • Basic connectivity options on board. No NFC or USB OTG, but least you do get a memory expansion slot
  • Battery life is average too • Removable 1,500mAh battery keeps the Nokia X going for a day with light usage • You may need to hunt for a power socket by the evening in case your usage is heavy
  • At a glance • 4-inch, 480 x 800 IPS screen • 3MP fixed focus camera • 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor • Adreno 203 GPU • 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, microSD card slot • 1,500mAh battery • Dual-SIM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS • FM Radio
  • - • Middling specs • No support for Google services • No proper multitasking • Front shooter missing in action • 3MP fixed-focus shooter delivers so-so results • A few performance hiccups Pros and cons + • Nokia and Android playing together for the very first time • Sturdy build and standout colours • Simple interface • Most Android apps supported, sideloading possible too • Nokia’s signature services like Here Maps and MixRadio
  • Rs 8,599 Pricing and verdict “The Nokia X does pale in comparison to other Android devices that offer a full-fledged Android experience (like the Xolo Q800 X- edition), but may be worth a look for those upgrading from a feature phone who need a simple UI along with peace of mind that only a brand like Nokia can bring.”
