Nokia X2 Smartphone In-Depth Review, Price, Features, Comparison

Nokia X2 Pictures
Nokia X2, the successor of Nokia X series
After experiencing a bit on dissatisfaction from the much awaited Nokia X, X+ and XL, Microsoft, on June 24th has announced their successor, Nokia X2. Since the footsteps of Nokia into the android market are new, the android devices released by them are always in the spotlight. I hope that my Nokia X2 review would help you realize the truth of the device!

One of the reasons why Nokia devices (including Nokia X2) stand out from the other android ones is that the interface is said to be inspired by Nokia Lumia. Another thing to note is that the operating system is not android, it justs supports all the android apps.

Nokia X2: Detailed Specifications

The device comes with 4.3 Inch capacitive touchscreen, 1 GB RAM, 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor, 4 GB Internal Storage and a 5 MP Camera.

What you can conclude from this is that the device is quite a bit ideal with an average processor.

Besides, Nokia X2's screen resolution is 480x800 pixels with 217 PPI (Pixels Per Inch). It surely isn't awesome but is ideal.

The OS, as I said before, is not any android, but Nokia X OS. You will be able to use android apps though.

The battery is of 1800mAh which is quite good for the smartphones of its screen size. Besides, the device is dual sim, which needs a good battery life!

Nokia X2 will be made available in 4 colours: Bright Green, Bright Orange, Black and White.

You will be getting many popular android apps pre-installed with the device.

A secondary camera has further added to the virtues of the device.

And yes, how can I forget the fastlane? With it, you can easily access your favourite apps!

Note the following in Nokia X2 Review:

Since Nokia X2 has its own UI, it will be a bit complicated to use it for an average android user. The interface is inspired by Lumia and I can say that it seriously is boring to use that kind of screen. I have experienced the fact myself.

What is good in Nokia X2

  • 1 GB RAM
  • 4 GB Internal Storage (Ideal according to the price)
  • 4.3 Inch Touchscreen
  • Offline Maps
  • Secondary Camera

What is not good in Nokia X2

  • Nokia X Operating System
  • 5 MP Camera
  • Unattractive looks
  • Complicated User interface
  • Absence of Google Services
Therefore, it would be a good device for you if you are a low-end gamer, ordinary business person or a simple android user. It won't be good if you are a high-end gamer, business person who needs many running apps, in need of simple user interface.

Price

It is currently launched in London at the price of 99 Euros, which equals to something around Rs.8000. The buy link will be available in this post once it is launched in India. The price is cheap, right?

Smartphones in its comparison

There are many smartphones in its comparison. Samsung fans can have the Galaxy S Duos, while Sony fans can enjoy the Xperia E Dual smartphone, both at almost this price. Other devices include Micromax Canvas 2, Nokia Lumia 520, XOLO Q700S etc.

Conclusion

Nokia X is an ideal device at its price range. With its 1 GB RAM, you will experience smooth flow of apps. There wouldn't be any major glitches associated with its performance, except the complications that might take place with the user to get used to the entirely new UI. The 5 MP camera is somewhat disgusting, but the cons are overlooked with features such as offline maps, presence of secondary camera etc. One important thing to look at is that Google Services are completely absent from the phone!

This was my review of Nokia X2!

Did you thoroughly enjoy it?

If yes, then would you please mind commenting on this post or sharing it to your friends and family?

Thanks!

If you're thinking how all this came up, let me tell you that it all started when Hindustan Times shared Sarthak Agarwal's picture on their Facebook page.

Note that none of these memes are created by us and I do not intend to insult or make fun of Sarthak Agarwal. Instead, I would like to congratulate him for his meritorious achievement!































































Do you think people responded only with memes? Of course not, there were many extremely funny comments as well. Click here to check those!

2 Plain Reasons Which Forced Me Not To Buy Micromax Mobiles


Are you like this guy who trusts Micromax completely?



Or are you someone who is still confused whether to trust the company or not?

Through Canvas 2 and Canvas HD, Micromax has been able to develop trust amongst their customers. But does the story end here. Do you smell something fishy?

In this post I am going to disclose 2 important reasons why buying devices from micromax wouldn't be worth it.

1. Micromax purchases their devices from a Chinese OEM

This point might arise a question in your mind. Till now you might be thinking that Micromax is an Indian company. Of course it is true, but it doesn't manufacture its own devices!

Yeah! Micromax purchases its smartphones from a Chinese OEM, adds their software, rebrands the device and sells it in the Indian market. Smart huh?

This fact also means that there is no difference between a Micromax and a Chinese device except the software you're getting and after-sales service.

Want a proof? Let me prove my words with the device, Micromax Canvas 4, the successor of Micromax Canvas HD.

Micromax Canvas 4, like other Micromax devices is a rebranded Chinese mobile. Have a look at the two pictures which I found on a TabletPhoneX's blog post:




The above pictures make it clear that both the devices, Blue Life One and Canvas 4 are the same. But do you know why? This is because both the companies purchase the device from the same Chinese OEM!

2. Micromax offers worst after sales service

You might be knowing this fact.

When Micromax entered the field of android, why did people criticize it?

Because of their poor after sales service, which was the same before.

Did you know that the service centers of Micromax are not many, and they often take a lot of time to repair.

The service centers don't take proper care of the devices. They also return many of the smartphones as they were before, without repairing them!

You might want to check out TechTree's post on this. There you will find one incident where this truth has been exposed!

So, what to buy then?

If you hate Samsung and Sony because of their high price, you should try going for Xolo.

Xolo manufactures its own devices and it is the only Indian company to try to different processors, ranging from MediaTek to QuadCore to even Intel.

There is a myth that Xolo is owned by Intel, but that is not true. Xolo is Indian by origin and planning to rock the international markets with so cheap rates, even cheaper than Micromax!


Here are some of the popular Xolo smartphones:

That's all folks!

Thank you for reading this article.

I just need a favor from you!

Can you comment on this post and share?

Commenting and sharing doesn't cost anything, does it?

Commenting will help me and sharing will help your friends, what's bad in it then?

It took me 4 hours to write this post. Can't you do the 2 minute work?
