Reviews for the Nokia X

77% Nokia X Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Android at last? The Nokia X marks Microsoft Mobile's entry into the Android market. What looks like a turnaround, is not really one at all: with the inexpensive entry-level smartphone, a reworked interface, and a special App Store, Microsoft is trying to lure customers and get them transitioned to the Windows Phone platform. Why the concept is not completely successful is the subject of our review.
40% Review: Nokia X — A Messy Android Affair
Source: English
The combination of Nokia and Android sounds very promising on paper. However, with focus set on Windows Phone, the Nokia X is an half-hearted attempt at Android from the Finns. No doubt, the phone's design and construction are top-notch, but its sluggish performance is a deal-breaker. Due to the single button layout, navigation is also painful. If you're looking for a budget Android device, the Moto E is the right choice. Those who want to stick with Nokia, should go for the Lumia 525.

20% The Nokia X is, quite frankly, the worst smartphone I’ve ever reviewed.

The performance of the Nokia X is horrendous. The device is laggy from the moment you turn it on, often to the point where a lack of responsiveness becomes frustrating. It’s also the first device I’ve reviewed to crash while performing an in-browser benchmark, as the SoC simply choked to death.

70% What happens when Nokia makes an Android phone?
Source: Engadget English
Microsoft's in a pickle. On one hand, its brand-new acquisition just came out with a product running its competitor's OS; on the other, that same product might be key to gaining mindshare in developing markets, which is one of the bloodiest battlefields in mobile right now. It's hard to feel confident in the X's future because Microsoft may choose not to invest in the series, focusing resources on cheaper Windows Phones instead.
