Yes thats why they had enough capital to expand to having Android. Nokia was losing ground till WP OS and Lumia design boosted it right back into consumer favs right around the time fanboys were chanting the stagnated Samsung praises.

It's likely the picture of L520 without capacitive buttons, not the X.

I already know that, I was just surprised by that picture. I wish it really could happen on the day when they unveil their high end Nokia X phone together with Google Play Store.

This is an interesting benchmark company I have never heard of. Access to these results would make for another good tool for those of us truly interested in mobil, not just "fans" of an OS. Worth looking up.

So the SoC of this phone is the S4 Play(MSM8225, Dual A5, Adreno 203), why not the S4 Plus(MSM8227, Dual Krait, Adreno 305) just like the one found in entry level Lumias?

Because the S4 Play is fast enough for a smooth performance?

For the ui? Yes. For games and multitasking? No.

I'm sure that you are a Troll, your first post attacks Nokia. Why not your first post to praise the Galaxy S5?

He is indeed a troll from Samsung and he needs to warm up first before going further of praising the Galaxy S5 and bash others. Ignore these pesky trolls.

Pretty ironic when Elop say the Nokia X series is filling the gap between Asha and Lumia series, but benchmark result show Nokia X score are close to the medium end Lumia 1520

I get what Nokia is trying to do here.. Nokia is using Android to gain market share.. Although its a forked version, without Play store support. But the UI on top of Android is WP tiles. Once Nokia starts gaining market, they would quietly remove Android from underneath.
Since, no play store services, Nokia is not bound to Google.
But the implementation is not right..
This handset is for the people who don't care which OS they are using; as long as it provides functionality of Phone, messaging, whatsapp, facebook, twitter, little games. But side loading android apk files on this device is tricky.
The people who dont care about OS/excessive features would not go into downloading apk files from other destinations and transferring it on file using USB, then installing & using it.
So, the target users for this device is reduced to very limited people.

You're exactly right... But, I just want to make sure that you understand that people who would actually try to side load are a very small minority... They majority of people who will buy this device are those that would be fine with it just the way it is... Is that what you're trying to say?

I'm saying the same thing but clearly the number of those people is very less.. Several other android/WP devices are available for those people.
