Nokia X2 vs Nokia X vs Nokia XL: specs comparison

Nokia X2 vs Nokia X vs Nokia XL: specs comparison
Earlier today, Microsoft unveiled the Nokia X2, a successor to the Nokia X, which was introduced back in February along with the Nokia X+ and the Nokia XL. Being the entry-level devices they are, said devices came with pretty humble hardware specs, but the most notable aspect about the Nokia X family of devices was that it ran Android. Well, technically speaking, it was a forked version of Android, which has been stripped from all of Google's apps and services.

Unsurprisingly, the Nokia X2 does not stray away from its predecessor that much, as it also runs a forked version of Android. The hardware of the Nokia X2 has been improved in comparison with the Nokia X - it sports a faster processor, twice as much RAM, a better GPU unit, and a bigger display.

With that being said, we put the Nokia X2 up against the Nokia X in order to see how Microsoft's latest fares against its predecessor in terms of pure hardware specifications. We've also thrown in a Nokia XL for a good measure.

Of course, you'll decide which one's the clear winner here, folks! Be sure to let us know by dropping a line in the comments section below.
