Comments are appreciated …


    • Nokia X claims to provide good battery backup than many traditional Android phones. But the reality can be judged when you get your hands on this device.

  • Nokia entered into the Android market very late and priced a bit higher when compared to other local brands.

    The biggest plus for Nokia X is its brand name and we need to wait for few more days before drawing a conclusion on how it is going to compete with Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2.

  • Hi Salman,
    Better late than never. I am glad that Nokia have finally launched Android phone. But the thing that worries me is it employs Nokia and MS services instead of Google’s . I like the design of Nokia X. If the battery backup is good (as they claim), I guess it is a nice phone under 10K
