Vijay, 04 Jul 2017Is there anyone who have successfully updated nokia x2 with google playstore ? Does it work ?Install android 5 (custom rom) from xda site and you experience new phone with all functionality of true android phone.
The x2 was one of the pointers that showed Nokia might leap fully into the android market and the then spouse of Nokia (Microsoft) quickly tried to killjoy the Nokia android show by halting the production of the rugged x2 a quarter baked but well welcomed Nokia droid, handles asphalt 8 game like no novice. my rating for the x2 9/10 and is the reason am aiming at the new android Nokias.May the lumias RIP.

AnonD-674216, 03 Jun 2017One of best smartphones from nokia ever. using more than 2years without any problem. still in ... moreCompletely agree with you.
Solid build quality. Fell a dozen times, but not even a scratch.
Looks great. Tough glass from corner to corner.
Never hanged. I'm a heavy user. Played large games. Installed 70 apps. Superb performance.
I browse 4-6 hours a day. Battery full day daily. When on only calls it lasts for 2-3 days.
Never heated, even if my HOTSPOT is always ON because I'm on a 2gb/day plan.
Display technology is CLEAR BLACK, better than IPS LCD.
The only con is average photo quality. Wait, it records wonderful HD videos.
One of best smartphones from nokia ever. using more than 2years without any problem. still in the era of heavyweight apps it can be used as basic phone, well, more than a basic phone with heavy net browsing and multi-tasking. last but not the least, hardware is pure nokia type, the strongest one :D
my personal rating will be 9/10.
pls i need the schematic diagram in-order to trace the charging solution
