#NokiaMWC Hands-on: Nokia X and X+

While Asha is doing really great in the low-cost market, Nokia is adding more handsets into the line-up with a more capable Android-based Nokia X and X+.

That’s probably the reason behind the release of the Nokia X — a more robust smartphone with access to the biggest app ecosystem in the world running on a Nokia hardware.

With the Nokia X priced at just €89 (roughly Php5,500), it hovers in the territory of a lot of low-cost Android devices out there.

The Nokia X looks and feels just like the previous Asha handsets with a hint of the Lumia 5xx series. Nokia also brought the colorful finish to the Nokia X, a solid polycarbonate material and a fully customized Nokia X software platform.

The UI is also similar to the Live Tiles of the Lumia series with the common apps already pre-installed along with some of the proprietary apps from Nokia like HERE.

The hardware configuration is pretty basic for both the Nokia X and the Nokia X+ although the X+ has more RAM (768MB) versus the latter (512MB).

Nokia X specs:
4.0-inch IPS LCD display @ 800×480 pixels, 233ppi
Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.0GHz dual-core
512MB RAM
4GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
Single-SIM (micro-SIM) or Dual-SIM
3G/HSPA 7.2Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 3.0 + HS
3MP rear camera
115.5 x 63 x 10.4mm
128.7 grams
Li-Ion 1,500mAh
Nokia X software platform 1.0 (Android Jellybean based platform)

The Nokia X also comes in either single SIM or dual-SIM configuration. The Nokia X is immediately available today with a suggested retail price of €89 (about Php5,500). In comes in a variety of colors — white, black, blue, green, yellow and red.

The Nokia X+ has same design as the Nokia X but with slightly better configuration, specifically the additional RAM and a 4GB microSD card included in the box.

Nokia X+ specs:
4.0-inch IPS LCD display @ 800×480 pixels, 233ppi
Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.0GHz dual-core
768MB RAM
4GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD (4GB included)
Single-SIM (micro-SIM) or Dual-SIM
3G/HSPA 7.2Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 3.0 + HS
3MP rear camera
115.5 x 63 x 10.4mm
128.7 grams
Li-Ion 1,500mAh
Nokia X software platform 1.0 (Android Jellybean based platform)

The soft button at the bottom end of the front panel is a single Back button which slightly departs from the usual Android soft menu.

It is also interesting to note that the Nokia X+ uses a micro-SIM card.

The Nokia X+ will be available sometime in the 2nd quarter of 2014 with a suggested retail price of €99 (roughly Php6,100).

Android-based Nokia X priced around Php5,000

    Tama kung dati pa sila nag-Android di sana mamayagpag ang Samsung. But then again it’s because of Sammy kaya nag-number one ang Android eh.

    I already bought this phone and I am happy with it. For my needs ok lang cya I mostly used it using FM radio text messaging ang for viewing web pages using WIFI which suits my needs. Camera quality is nice but is poor in not well lit environment, anyway camera is not that high end but I do not care with it since I do not use it on night time. UI is very simple and user friendly to me. It is smooth and do not lag. I just have a couple of helpful apps installed.
