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: Techtree.com 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.

Nokia X71 Review: Snapdragon 660 AIE, With Triple Cameras
Source: Igeekphone English
Personally, if HMD wants to realize the value of Nokia’s mid-to-high-end brand as the blue-green factory returns to the public, it needs a brand-new mobile phone with its own unique or superior design. It may be more appropriate to say that Nokia 9 Pureview may be a problem for the Nokia X71 to play this role.

Comment

Nokia: The Finnish enterprise is one of the most important telecommunication companies and well-known for mobile technologies. The company started with netbooks in 2009.


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Qualcomm Adreno 203: Entry level GPU with support for OpenGL ES 2.0

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 509: Integrated graphics card in the Snapdragon 636 SoC based on the Adreno 500 architecture. Most likely featuring a slightly higher core clock compared to the Adreno 508.

Qualcomm Adreno 512: Integrated graphics card based on the Adreno 500 architecture, like the Adreno 520 in the Snapdragon 820. According to Qualcomm up to 30% faster than the previous generation (Adreno 510?). Supports DirectX12, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Qualcomm Snapdragon:

S4 Play MSM8625Q: Entry-level-SoC with four Cortex-A5 cores at 1.2 GHz.

SD 636: Mid-range octa-core SoC with eight Kryo 260 cpu cores at up to 1.8 GHz, an Adreno 509 GPU, a LPDDR4-2666 memory controller and a X12 LTE (Cat 13/12, 300 / 150 MBit) modem. Manufactured in the modern 14nm process.

SD 660: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2.2 GHz cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz cores) and a rather slow Adreno 512 GPU. Manufactured in a 14 nm process.
