  • Dual SIM card support
  • Fast mobile data support (4G)


  • Low pixel density screen (217 ppi)
  • Too little RAM memory (1024 MB RAM)
  • Low resolution display (480 x 800 pixels)
  • Low-resolution camera (5 megapixels)




Microsoft's new affordable device comes with a 4.3-inch ClearBlack LCD display with a resolution of 480 x 800. The Nokia X2 packs a dual-core Snapdragon 200 SoC, which is running at 1.2GHz. The amount of on-board RAM, has doubled in comparison with the Nokia X – the Nokia X2 sports a hefty 1GB of RAM, which is an altogether a substantial increase. However, the 4GB of available internal storage aren't, but the microSD card slot should do the trick, as it supports memory cards of up to 32GB in size. A removable 1800mAh battery a keeps the lights on. Additionally, the 5MP rear snapper comes with a flash and autofocus – as you might remember, the Nokia X was devoid of these.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
