Nokia X10 smartphone review: Reliable 5G phone with four cameras

One to last for a long time. Sustainability is also important for the Nokia X10, which means that buyers get three years of Android updates and a compostable case. But can the mid-range phone also convince in everyday use?

Nokia X10

Nokia is challenging other manufacturers: Not necessarily with the fastest smartphones on the market, but with a company policy that is as sustainable as possible. This includes prolonged Android update cycles for the X series devices, i.e. Nokia's most expensive smartphones, and the absence of a charger in the box, for example.

The Nokia X10 is the somewhat watered-down counterpart of the Nokia X20. In terms of design, there is hardly any difference between the two devices, and many specifications appear to be very similar as well. The official price difference is 80 Euros (~$95), and the Nokia X10 is priced at 319 Euros (~$378), placing it in the traditional price range of the smartphone mid-range.

Case – Silky shimmer

The Nokia X10's chassis is available in two color variants: Forest and Snow. Forest is a dark green, while Snow is a shade of white. Our green test device has a slightly silky shimmer on the back and consequently looks very attractive despite the plastic chassis.

However, corners were cut when it comes to the glass on the front: Nokia only uses Gorilla Glass 3 here, while Gorilla Glass 5 with its much higher hardness was used in the X20. Therefore, the pre-applied screen protector makes perfect sense.

The smartphone is protected according to the IP52 standard. As a result, the smartphone offers decent protection against dust, but it's only protected against water splashes when it comes to fluids. The dimensions and weight are identical to the Nokia X20, so this isn't a light or a small smartphone.

The Nokia X10 is sturdily built, and it doesn't have any problems when pressure is applied to the front or back. Furthermore, the smartphone can hardly be twisted.

Connectivity – Less storage in the Nokia X10

With 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB for data, the storage configuration has been exactly cut in half compared with the Nokia X20. The X10 still has the usual amount of storage for its price range, but the OnePlus Nord N10 or the Vivo Y72 show that it's possible to include even more storage space.

The smartphone features NFC, so that mobile payment services can be used. There's also a USB-C port, but it's only connected with USB 2.0 speeds internally.

microSD card reader

The smartphone can hold microSDs of up to 512 GB, but you have to do without one of the two SIM slots in exchange. The Nokia X10 reads and writes to our Angelbird V60 microSD card at the usual level in our tests.

Software – Three new Android versions

Android 11 is preinstalled out of the box. Nokia promises three years of updates, so the smartphone will receive all versions up to Android 14 according to the manufacturer. Thanks to Android One, there should also be monthly security updates; our test device should receive them soon, since the security patches dated back to the beginning of June at the time of testing.

Although Nokia has implemented pure Android, it has also installed two advertising apps, but they can be quickly uninstalled. A DRM certification is available, so you can also watch streaming content in HD resolution.

Communication and GNSS – Reliable WLAN signal

The Nokia X10 is a 5G phone. It offers a certain diversity of frequencies in both the 4G and 5G networks, but it's not a proper world phone that can be used in every country. The network quality was good in our short test, even indoors.

Let's take a closer look at the WLAN features: The Nokia phone comes with Wi-Fi 5, and it's able to convice in our test with the Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router with class-typical speeds. This should be sufficient for everyday use, especially if you only have a 100 or 250 Mb Internet connection. The OnePlus Nord N10 is the best performer in this price range, doubling the transfer rates of the remaining comparison devices thanks to its 2x2 MIMO technology.

GPS Test outdoors

The smartphone receives a satellite signal very quickly outdoors, and it's sufficient for accurate positioning. There are several satellite networks available that the Nokia X10 also accesses quickly and comprehensively according to the GPS Test app.

In our real-world test, a bike tour with the smartphone and the Garmin Edge 520 navigation device as comparison device, the Nokia X10 proves to offer pretty accurate positioning, but it's off track when crossing the pedestrian bridge.

Therefore, users who care about absolutely accurate positioning should test the Nokia X10 carefully before buying it. If you aren't bothered by minor deviations here and there, you'll get a reliable navigation device with the smartphone.

Telephone and call quality

Nokia uses the standard Android app for phone calls. Support for VoLTE and VoWiFi is available.

The Nokia X10 does a good job in terms of call quality. Although the voice of the user on the other end isn't always completely clear or without background noise, it's always intelligible overall. We don't have to speak excessively loud when using the phone function, either, in order for our voice to reach the other person. In hands-free mode, i.e. using the built-in speaker, the voice of the person on the other end of the line also sounds fine. However, we can't speak too quietly here, since they are otherwise no longer able to hear us.

Cameras – Nokia with four lenses

Front-facing camera sample
Front-facing camera sample

The camera setup of the two devices from Nokia's X series looks quite similar at first glance: Four lenses, three of which can be used for taking pictures, while the fourth one supports portrait shots. The only difference compared with the Nokia X20 is the main camera's resolution: The Nokia X10 only has a 48-megapixel lens.

However, since photos are usually only taken with a quarter of the resolution anyway in order to achieve a higher light yield, the difference is reduced to four megapixels in total. Does that really make a big difference?

Indeed, the photos taken with the Nokia X10 look a bit less detailed than those captured with the Nokia X20: There's less image sharpness, and the imaging performance is visibly weaker in detail. But the differences are really only noticeable in the details. Overall, the Nokia X10 also takes decent photos. Under low light and high contrast, the illumination is passable, and some details are still visible.

The wide-angle camera looks a bit dim, but it's sufficient for snapshots as long as you don't enlarge them too much.

Videos can be recorded with the main camera at a maximum of 1080p and 30 fps. 60 frames per second would've been nice here. The Samsung Galaxy A32 5G even shoots Ultra HD videos if you want. Picture quality is decent, but the autofocus could be a bit faster.

In contrast to the Nokia X20, there's no selfie camera with pixel-binning at the front, but only an 8-megapixel lens. Nevertheless, the resulting selfies are still quite good and can be magnified as well.

Image Comparison

Choose a scene and navigate within the first image. One click changes the position on touchscreens. One click on the zoomed-in image opens the original in a new window. The first image shows the scaled photograph of the test device.

The Nokia smartphone's main camera shows good color reproduction and decent contrast in the photo lab. However, there's still room for improvement when it comes to detail sharpness. You can still make out details in an illumination of only 1 lux, but the picture is visibly blurry.

Accessories and warranty – No charger

Nokia's X series needs a bit of getting used to when it comes to its accessories: There is no charger in the box. Nokia intends to protect the environment with this, since many users already have a charger at home.

Needless to say, you can also purchase a charger from Nokia if you wish. In that case, you pay 17 Euros (~$20), the proceeds are donated, which means that Nokia doesn't earn anything from the chargers. Users who want to use their own charger can find the requirements on Nokia's website.

Not every power adapter worked smoothly with the Nokia X10 in our test; a Warp Charge 65 charger from OnePlus, for example, resulted in the smartphone reconnecting every 20 seconds.

Instead of the charger, there's a case in the box that's made of a compostable material and protects the phone from damage, allowing you to hopefully use it for a longer time. A USB cable and a SIM tool are also included in the box, and other accessories like cases or a phone stand are available on Nokia's website at moderate prices.

Nokia also offers an extended warranty of 36 months in many regions, which also protects users from any damage that might have already occurred during production for a longer period of time.

Input devices and handling – With Google Assistant button

The touchscreen responds well and reliably. However, it's a 60 Hz display, so that using it feels a bit less smooth than with the OnePlus Nord N10, for example.

The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the standby button, and it recognizes fingerprints quickly and reliably. The solution is equally well suited for right- and left-handers. There's also a dedicated Google Assistant button on the right of the case. However, the button becomes superfluous if you don't want to use it for this, because it can't be reassigned.

Overall, the hardware buttons look quite premium and have a good pressure point. Nevertheless, the standby button protrudes a bit from the case, and rather rough edges can be felt, which slightly reduces the perceived quality.

Display – Full HD panel in the Nokia phone

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

Only the Samsung Galaxy A32 still has a 720p display among the comparison devices, with Full HD being the norm otherwise. The Nokia X10 also features 1080p resolution and an IPS display that can get quite bright if required. The brightness distribution isn't quite as homogeneous as in the Nokia X20.

The black level is pretty high, so that the contrast value is only just good enough. This means that colors look rather pale; the IPS panel can't compete with an OLED display in this respect.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 2358000 Hz ≤ 20 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 2358000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 20 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 2358000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15315 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

In our tests with the CalMAN software and the spectrophotometer, we focus on two scenarios: One with the factory settings and one with a warm white balance that can be selected in the settings.

In the default settings, the display appears to be only moderately accurate in color reproduction with a clear blue tint in lighter hues. Grayscales also make this clearly visible to the naked eye. The color tint is still present with the warm white balance, but it's no longer as pronounced, and it tends towards greenish.

Therefore, users who need an absolutely accurate display, for example to check print colors, are probably on the wrong track here. If an approximate reproduction is enough, you'll get a solid display.

It's also pleasing that PWM flickering takes place at an extremely high frequency, so that it can probably be ignored, as it shouldn't cause anyone any discomfort. Response times are average at best and too slow for hardcore gamers.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
20 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9 ms rise
↘ 11 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 27 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
42 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 23 ms rise
↘ 19 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 56 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.8 ms).

Even in strong sunlight, the smartphone is still legible outdoors when necessary. Nevertheless, as we checked the display's viewing angles, we noticed that the image darkens visibly when viewed from below. However, this effect is more noticeable with the camera than with the human eye. It's not quite as pronounced here, and the screen's content continues to be recognizable.

Performance – Little future-proofing

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 sounds like an entry-level SoC, but it has already proven in the Nokia X20 that it can definitely keep up with other mid-range systems. Nevertheless, we can also see that devices with slightly more performance will definitely be released in the same price segment this year. One example is the Vivo Y72.

Performance is sufficient for everyday use. The performance limits of the SoC only become visible in more demanding apps or when several applications are running at the same time.

The Nokia X10 is also on par with the competition in terms of graphics performance.

The Nokia X10 is quite consistent in terms of the internal storage's read and write speeds: While the comparison devices sometimes have their issues with sequential writing, the Nokia smartphone can offer quite constant speeds here. At the same time, other devices read from memory much faster. Overall, the storage speed results are mixed.

Games – Hard to play at 60 fps

In some titles, you can even game at 60 fps with the Nokia X10: Armajet, for example, makes the high frame rates possible.

However, this is only stable to a certain extent. PUBG Mobile reaches around 40 fps at low settings, while only around 30 frames per second are possible at high settings.

This should make the Nokia X10 more interesting for casual gamers. If you want to win in high-speed games like shooters, you'll probably need better hardware. We measured the frame rates with GameBench.

The controls work well, and the touchscreen responds reliably.

Speaker

The mono speaker in the Nokia X10 can get quite loud if desired, but this leads to strongly overemphasized highs that sound unpleasant to the ears. The small speaker doesn't deliver genuine basses, but the overall sound is acceptable for occasional use.

If you want to connect headphones or speakers, you can use the 3.5 mm jack or Bluetooth. APTX HD is supported for sound improvement during wireless connection.
