REVIEW Nokia X / X+ / XL

Nokia X is the new Android smartphone made ​​by the Finnish company Nokia, introduced it at the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona in February 2014. Nokia has introduced three different terminals: Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL.


Nokia X / X+ / XL: Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core 1 GHz.

Snapdragon is the platform for smartphones, tablet and smartbook devices created by mobile technology company Qualcomm. 1 GHz represents a not very high wave amplitude, while the two cores (or dual-core) processors are reflected in the ability of processes that can perform in a given time. It means that it makes twice more processes than a single-core processor, this is called MIPS (Million Instructions Per Second). It’s a bit disappointing, considering that the use of four cores is widespread and there are already eight-core processors.

Nokia X / X+ / XL


Nokia X / X+: IPS LCD 4 inches with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.
Nokia XL: IPS LCD 5 inches with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.

Both Nokia X and X+ have a pretty standard display, lower than most of its rivals and with a discrete resolution. The fact that Nokia XL has a 5-inch screen and keep the same resolution as 4 inches is definitely a mistake.


Nokia: 4 GB no expandable up.
Nokia X+: 4 GB, expandable up to 8 GB with MicroSD card.
Nokia XL: 4 GB, expandable up to 32 GB with MicroSD card.

Storage memory is what is called PC hard drive. In this case the 4 GB memory storage capacity to expand up to 32 GB by adding a microSD card the phone are a bit ower than that of other current smartphones with this display and features.


Nokia X: 512 MB.
Nokia X+: 768 MB
Nokia XL: 768 MB

In RAM are loaded all the instructions that processor executes, so the more MB you have the better. In this case Nokia X RAM is below the average, and this makes it a little limited. It stays at 768 MB instead of reaching to 1 GB when theoretically there wouldn’t have been a substantial change in its selling price.

 Nokia X / X+ / XL


Nokia X / X+: 3 megapixel rear camera.
Nokia XL: 5 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel front camera.

The camera of the Nokia X also has flash.


3G and place for a dual-SIM card.

These are all the types of connections it supports. 4G indicates that this mobile uses a system and a third-generation network, converging wired and wireless networks, including Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

In addition to these features, new Sony Xperia Z2 has a 1115.5 × 63 × 10.4 (Nokia X), 115.5 × 63 × 10.4 (X+) y 141.3 × 77.7 × 10.8 (XL) size; in X / X+ models it is significantly lighter than competitive models (128g) and average with Nokia XL (190g); it has a non-removable 1500mAh battery (X, X+) and 1500mAh battery (XL) and features Google Android OS.

In short, the new and highly anticipated Nokia X, whose main novelty is Android, is a change for the better with respect to other models in the same range of the company, although the followers of the compalny will be a little bit disappointed.
