Editor Rating: 3.9 / 5

Wandering into something new is dependably a fearsome thing, actually for a expert smartphone maker that is been moving move down the stepping stool for the last few years or somewhere in the vicinity. Nokia has seen a decent amount of good and bad times throughout that time, so it accompanied extraordinary doubt when bits of hearsay first came coasting to the surface with respect to plans of making an Android fueled cell phone. Quick advance to the present and Nokia ends up once more in an alternate intersection.

On one side, they haven't ignored the low end fragment, which is made particularly known by their proceeded responsibility to its Asha line of mechanisms. What's more on the flip side, its Lumia line has demonstrated to us the potential miracles of what its high-close cell phones are equipped for doing. All things considered, they're wandering out again in untamed waters by entering the Android circle with a trio of new cell phones from its X line. In this involved post, we're centering our consideration on its grandest estimated offering – the Nokia XL.

Design and display

Nokia is only spot on regarding the matter of outlining a cell phone, which shows again with the Nokia XL. You could contend that it gets intensely from its Lumia line, a fitting signal no doubt acknowledging that Nokia's handset have a different look to them. With respect to the Nokia XL, its not an awful looking telephone when you look and hold it – however, its construct quality is an acceptable evidence of its target group of peoples.

All the components we discover on any cell phone are littered around its edges, so they incorporate the powerful  volume manage, 3.5mm headset jack, and micro usb port. The  smart phone have a introverted capacitive back catch underneath its show, while a 2-meapixel front facing camera  sits on the presentation. Then, the back is home to its 5-megapixel Polaroid with LED glimmer and speakerphone score. Underneath the back packaging, we get access to its double SIM and microsd openings.

When you're required to game an astounding low value focus, it shouldn't be a stunner to find that the showcase in the Nokia XL isn't set to be specs cognizant. Emphasizing a 5-creep 480 x 800 (WVGA) IPS showcase, its doubtlessly not the most honed thing in its class, yet it doesn't have to be. Parts could be spotty in the matter of fine content and whatnot, yet for the larger part of different things, it shouldn't generally represent an issue.

Processor and memory

Looking over the handset, its double center 1ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 768mb of RAM doesn't appear threatening despite today's quad-centers, however paying little mind to that, its sufficient to power the Nokia XL with little or few issues. By and large talking, essential operations are executed in a nice way – with rich developments seen with things like motor scrolling in the homscreen.

As far as capacity, the Nokia XL brags an irrelevant 4gb of memory, which again isn't something astounding, however in any event it might be supplemented on account of the accessibility of a microsd card space.

Network and Connectivity

The homescreen is exceptionally Windows Phone-like, since it comprises of static tiles that could be improved and resized to our enjoying. Swiping down from the top bezel of the UI at whenever gifts us gain access to a natural connectivity and warnings tray – while swiping left/right from the primary homescreen takes us to the "Quick Lane," which gives off an impression of being a collection of the most as of late utilized applications and characteristics.

Outwardly, the UI is an intriguing take recognizing that its Android underneath everything. In the meantime, however, the experience isn't truly Android-like. To be more correct, Nokia has reinstated some of the prominent administrations that we get with Android, such as Gmail, and rather exchanged them with a considerable lot of the stuff from Microsoft's group . Obviously, that choice will affect those bad-to-the-bone Google clients, yet for the individuals who aren't put resources into it, the switch shouldn't represent an issue.


The high-close Lumia line is still known for some of its camera driven cell phones, however the easier spec  Nokia XL doesn't have anything excessively particular. Rather, its furnished with a 5-megapixel back auto-center camera with a ¼ inch sensor, f2.8 gap lens, and a LED blaze. For what its worth, we're not having any elevated standards with the effects – but, we'll hold up to condemn until we see its last comes about. Around the front, there's simply a 2-megapixel tally camera, which is the standard flourish when you contemplate it.

Expectations And Expected Price.

Cell phones with 5-inch shows have a tendency to be that impeccable size for getting to be leads, yet in this specific case, its no place remotely close in attaining that status. By the by, we can't neglect to specify its stunning cost of €109 ($150) when it starts at some point in Q2 2014 in developing markets abroad. Sorry US parents, there isn't word on if we'll see this one area stateside.

We're set to keep a nearby eye on how the Nokia XL works out, seeing that its prosperity is dependent upon how well shoppers embrace it – more so with its tweaked Android experience than whatever else might be available.
