Five minutes with the Nokia X

That’s all I got today with the Nokia X at the launch event in Mumbai. My first impressions:

  • Really good design and build; typical Nokia stuff.
  • Display is good for the price (8,599).
  • Software feels sluggish, typical for Android phones in that price range. It’s usable but it’s not smooth by any stretch of imagination. Windows Phone feels much better.
  • Camera is mediocre.
  • Nokia’s UI tries to mishmash various ideas and isn’t native to any other platform. Regardless to which phone you come from, this will take some getting used to.
  • Meh.
  • Buy a Moto G.
