Nokia renews its compatible smartphone with Android, and makes aiming for a slightly more strong technical profile
Nokia introduced its family Nokia X during last year’s Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona in February. Rumors spoke of a smartphone Nokia with Android, but this claim is not entirely correct. The Nokia X is compatible with Android, but works with a personalized visual layer of Nokia with a style quite reminiscent of Windows Phone. In just a few months the Espoo-based company has decided to renew this product and the Nokia X2 is now official. The new model is still committed to the concept, while maintaining a very reasonable price, but improving the technical profile with a new design with double-layer shell that gives an attractive mirror effect. We see all the features of Nokia X2 below.
The Nokia X2 has a screen with a diagonal of 4.3 inches. This size is perfect to handle the terminal with one hand and carry it without being disturbed, but at the same time allows us to see the content clearly. The panel type is LCD and has a resolution WVGA, which equates to 480 x 800 pixels and concentrated 217 dots per inch. Nokia includes its system ClearBlack, a technology that increases the contrast, playing deeper blacks and averted reflexes so that we can clearly see the screen even though we are in bright sunlight.
Nokia continues to promote a line of similar design to which it used with the first Nokia X, but in this case its casing has a double coat with a glossy plastic finish on the outside. The terminal is available in green, orange, black and white and color highlight the material beneath. The housing is made of polycarbonate and is removable, so you can replace the battery without problems. The equipment is quite compact, but its thickness is 11.1 mm, fairly wide compared to current standards. It weighs 150 grams.
The Nokia X2 is a device input range and does not have very advanced pieces, but not a forfeit, its camera is actually a good example of that can provide a complete and balanced solution without components more pointers. The terminal integrates a rear camera of five megapixels, the sensor measures 1/4 inch and carries a lens with f/2.4 aperture. It also integrates an LED flash for night shots, but yes, the object must be photographed at one meter distance at most. The approach is automatic with 10cm macro carries four digital zoom increases, modes of scene and even a shutter button on the side. Recording videos is made as 720p HD and also carries a front camera for video calls, but in this case the resolution is equivalent to 0.3 megapixels.
The profile media of the Nokia X2 is very complete from the point of view of the formats supported, so we will not have problems when playing a video, listen to a song or see a picture. Nokia also provides service Nokia Mix Radio, through which you can listen to millions of songs streaming free. It also supports Podcast, leads tuner FM radio with RDS and wearing a microphone for noise cancellation during calls.
Nokia has integrated a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 in the new Nokia X2. the chip is a dual core Cortex A7 operating at 1.2 GHz frequency. It is also supported by 1 GB of memory RAM, enough for the system to move fluidly. The internal memory of the Nokia X2 is only 4 GB, but it extends memory cards microSD of 32 GB extra. Microsoft also offers 7 Gb free OneDrive, its cloud service.
As mentioned earlier, The Nokia X2 is compatible with Android, but it works on the Nokia X 2.0 platform. This customization has a design inspired by Windows Phone, with a home screen shortcuts formed quite reminiscent to Live Tiles mobile system from Redmond. One of its functions is FastLane, a section where you can access the recently opened applications, allowing switching from one to another quickly. The terminal integrates a package of services Nokia and Microsoft, which includes applications such as Skype, which also in this case comes with a monthly bonus of international calls. Cloud also has OneDrive, mail Outlook and maps HERE and HERE Maps Drive. The terminal allows you to install applications of Android and is also compatible with stores like 1Mobile Market, Aptoide, Mobango and SlideME.
The Nokia X2 allows connection to 3G mobile networks, by which you can navigate to a maximum speed of 21 Mbps, which is not bad. It also supports network access, so we can sail faster when we are near a known access point, and incidentally saved our mobile data tariff. Nor could they miss the wireless port Bluetooth 4.0 antenna or GPS to use maps and location services. Physical connections are a MicroUSB 2.0 connector for headphones and dual SIM card slot. If you have two phone lines, for example one for business and one personal can carry the two in the same smartphone.
The terminal incorporates a removable battery of 1,800 milliamps which offers a range of ten to thirty hours of talk time, depending on the connection you’re using. Weather in rest using two SIM is 23 days, while we can be 86 hours listening to music and just four hours browsing mobile networks.
