Nokia officially launched Nokia X in India. The first Android smartphone from Nokia comes with a price tag of Rs. 8599. The phone is already listed on some of the online retailer websites for Rs. 8500.
Let’s now take a look at the specifications of Nokia X.
Nokia X comes with a 4 inch IPS LCD display that offers 480 x 800 WVGA resolution, which is very basic when many phones in this price range comes with qHD resolution and bigger displays. But those phones are not from manufacturers as big as Nokia.
CPU and Memory
The phone is powered by a 1 GHz Snapdragon S4 dual core processor paired with 512 MB RAM. This is also disappointing because we are now seeing phones that comes with Octa core processors and better clock-speed. The RAM is also basic, even the Nokia Lumia 525, the Windows OS phone from Nokia comes with 1 GB of RAM. The price of Nokia Lumia 525 is just Rs.9500 on On line portals which is just Rs. 1000 more than this phone. Internal memory of the device is 4 GB which is normal for a budget android phone. It can be expanded up to 32 GB using a microSD card. On comparison front Nokia Lumia 525 comes with a 8 GB internal memory, expandable up to 64 GB.
Operating System and User Interface
Nokia has done serious tweaks with Android Interface to make it appear like the Windows Phone OS. The user interface looks good and functions the way it is expected. The UI is really smooth.
The rear camera in this device comes with a 3 MP sensor which is very basic. You cannot expect much from this camera.
Nokia X comes with a 1500 mAH battery. The battery delivers enough juice to run the device for 10.5 hours on 3G and gives a very impressive 22 days stand by.
Going by the today’s standards the Nokia X has got the specifications of an entry level smartphone device. They have placed the X phone where their Asha series ends. It is an ideal choice for those looking for a budget phone from an established brand.
