Nokia X is the latest release by Nokia that is based upon the trimmed version of Android. It is highly customized by Nokia but is powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Despite featuring Android, the device does not offer Google Services but instead offers a fleet of Microsoft as well as Nokia services. I bought the device after analyzing Nokia X Specification list and the low Nokia X Price. Here are some things that I wish to share after using the device for more than a month now.
- In the device you will find some of the great Nokia services such as HERE Maps, which are simply amazing as they allow the user to download maps even if the device isn’t connected to the internet. So even if you are offline, you can reach to the right destination because of precise map details.
- Nokia X Features MIXradio, which allows the user to download songs and stream music without the need of connecting to internet. It might have some limitations but the main advantage is that the service is absolutely free and a great addition to the device especially if you consider the price point.
- Nokia X Price in India is just Rs 8,599 and at such a low cost, the presence of a basic 3 megapixels camera with a fixed focus and not many capabilities to boast is completely understandable. The best part is that the user can also capture panoramas and record videos as well. Above all the recorded videos can be saved in a variety of formats.
- The device houses a battery of 1500 mAh and the performance is quite satisfactory. The best part is that the device does not consume much battery when it is idle, though the drain can be heavy while browsing over internet and also while using multitude of features.
