Ok, first and foremost I love Nokia. The Nokia X2-xx [The one with the imaginary Blackberry feel] Was my first device and I loved it, but having taking some time to engage my head on the whole idea of The Nokia X line of android handsets I am not just convinced about the phones.
launched the X, X+ And XL android handsets and while I would always say I’ve always wanted an Android phone made by Nokia, I’ll never in any life give Nokia my money for any of this devices. You might be wondering why, Simple Answer. The Nokia X and it’s brothers benefit No one. I’ll explain further
The Nokia X line of phones where simply made to make Android look Laggy, which in actual fact is not true. Coupled with low optimized hardware and Ridiculous amount of RAM [285 RAM on the Nokia X and 728 RAM on the Nokia XL] the devices will be the king of Lags. Having an Instagram or a SnapChat or a Vine app means nothing when the hardware is not fully optimized for such [2MP primary camera on the Nokia X and 5MP primary camera on the Nokia XL]
Nokia dumped all Google services in favour of Microsoft services and even though it makes some sense because Nokia is now owned by Microsoft, porting Gmail, Google search, google maps apps will be a pain in the neck due to the high rate of lag
The budget Lumia phones will also suffer, most people want an Android phone from Nokia, just as far as it can play Temple run, Fifa 14,Pes 2012, plants vs Zombies [even if they are all likely to play poorly on the phone]
Hence the sales of the Lumia 520 and 525 will surely decline in favour of the Nokia X line
Nokia should focus on making an Android phone with decent mid range specs not the present crap of Nokia X line which will keep on lagging behind in every task you perform with them. They should focus more on bringing Microsoft services to the Google Play Store and not try to tempt us with Plant vs Zombies and The Amazon App store
If you’re an Android fan and are looking for a budget phone, buy the Tecno P5, M7, M5, Motorola G, Gionee M2 and don’t even look twice at this abomination
