The gallery on the Nokia X lists all of your albums. In addition to the album view, it also supports sorting by location and time.
Images are shown in a grid of three by four that is vertically scrollable. You can pinch or double-tap to zoom on images. You can also share photos via email or Bluetooth and edit them. Editing options include rotating, flipping, cropping, lighting and contrast adjustment and adding color effects.
You can set images as wallpapers, add them to favorites, see details and start a slideshow from the pull-up context menu.
The Nokia X music player has a tabbed interface with four tabs - songs, artists, albums and playlists. Customizable equalizers are available from the advanced menu.
The now playing screen shows the usual controls - shuffle, repeat, play/pause, next and previous songs. There is a scrubber, which you can use to skip parts of the song. Album art is available too.
The song will keep playing even if you exit the player - you get a shortcut in the Fastlane and on the lockscreen with play-pause-skip controls readily available.
There is no dedicated video app, but all of your videos get listed in the gallery instead. You can share, delete or view detailed information from the swipe-able menu at the bottom of the screen.
The Nokia X is technically capable of playing 3GP/MP4/MKV videos up to 1080p resolution, but 720p or higher res usually results in lots of jerkiness and dropped frames, so we'd stick to SD if we had to use this one as a portable player. AC3 audio codec are supported, which is nice. DivX and XviD video codecs are not supported though.
The Now Playing screen offers very basic user interface with just a Play/Pause button and a scrubber.
The FM radio on Nokia X comes with a neat and simple interface. It supports manual tuning via a dedicated tool at the bottom. You can scroll between stations too, and you can save up to four favorite stations.
Just like with the music player, the FM radio will keep playing when you exit the app - you get a shortcut in the Fastlane and on the lockscreen with the station information and an off switch.
