Being a Nokia product, how can it come without any extra salt and sugar on Android OS? So here it is! The phone comes Nokia Browser and Opera apps along social apps for Facebook, Twitter, Skype, WeChat and Viber. For a better music experience, the phone has a pre-loaded Nokia MixRadio app which should be better called as the default music of Nokia X.
After the Nokia Lumia series which runs on Windows OS, the first Android phone from Nokia looks like an amazing product with all the idea features that a Smartphone of this price range should have. The only three disadvantages can be counted as no front camera, the satisfactory rear camera and again its 512 MB RAM. This low RAM was a weak point in a few Lumia phones as well. Overall, Nokia X seems to be a cool phone with an attractive look and those many features and possibilities that one has with an Android Smartphone from Nokia!
Well, this is just a beginning! The company may soon announce its other Android phones like Nokia X+ and Nokia XL within 2014.
