The Nokia X features a 4" IPS LCD display of WVGA (480 x 800 pixels) resolution. Colors are okay, brightness and contrast are reasonable, but nothing spectacular out of a sub-100 euro device.
Under the hood, the entire Nokia X range shares the same 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset, with only the X somewhat limited at 512MB of RAM. Internal storage is just 4GB, but is expandable up to 32GB.
At the back of the Nokia X there's a 3MP fixed focus camera, but no front-facer. The phone weighs 129 grams and packs a 1500mAh battery. It's good for 10.5 hours of 3G talk time and a maximum standby time of 17 days. It is also capable of up to 26 hours of music playback, while video playback time is quoted at 8.4 hours.
The build quality of the X is superb. The plastic feels nice as with most recent Nokia smartphones and isn't a ferocious fingerprint magnet. It's quite sturdy too.
Overall, Android runs well on the X, despite the lower RAM than the other two X members. It's also very easy to navigate around as the tiles offer a comfortable view of what you have on the phone.
The Nokia X is no performance monster, but we ran some benchmarks anyway. The phone to compare it is the Moto G, which has noticeably higher-end specs.
On a side note, we downloaded Benchmark Pi and AnTuTu 4 from the app store on the phone - it's great to see content in a store that's just a few days old.
