It won't... The Nokia XL has the exact same specs as the Nokia X, including the screen resolution. This gives it a horrible ppi of 187, so I would not go for it.

It's not too bad for a backup low-spec phone, which is exactly why I'm getting it for—to replace my old Asha.. Of course, my main phone will still be a flagship Android. Maybe the Z2 this time around.

BTW, for the flagship Android I would go for the awesome LG G2. Better design than Z2 and much better value :)

512MB and 768MB ram can't be called exactly same specs!!

I am intrigued... the Lumia 521 and 520 are GREAT phones at the price point. Truly redefined the budget smartphone segment.
I used a Lumia 521 for a bit, but I had a Nexus 5 and Lumia 925 that were calling my name. I needed more processing, memory, and better camera. But had I not been a "power" user, the Lumia 521 would not only fit the bill, but exceed it.
For this reason the Nokia X (and all variants) can be successful, depending on how the hardware handles the OS. But I will wait and look from the outside and see if better hardware is used by Nokia's Android models (should they come.)

The Nokia X phones are cool but only the Nokia XL is worth An android fans attention because it has a front facing camera. I Fully expect a Nokia XL-Plus model to be sold in the developed rich nations like the USA. It will be cheap and better specs than the current Nokia XL android X phone. I think this will happen if microsoft keeps the Nokia X smart phones in production and supports them.

It's really not worth a fan of ANY platform's attention. Beyond having the front facing camera, the Nokia X and XL share the exact same specs. Plus it's built on top of Android 4.1 which is only almost 2 years old now. I was excited for it when it was mentioned but now I'm extremely disappointed with what it turned out to be.
If they do bring forth an XL+ they're going to have to do a lot of upgrading to just about everything on the phone to be competitive somewhere like the states.

nokia xl has more ram compare to x. nokia x system use 220mb of ram, if nokia xl system use same ram then we will have 300mb+ free ram. my gs3 has 200mb to 300mb free of ram, when you compare them you will see its not that bad for the price.

Nokia sure does deliver a great and solid experience across Windows Phone and Android platform.
