Nokia X Android Smartphone

Running on a custom version of Android v4.1.2 JellyBean, the device has looks borrowed from the Lumia smartphones while the UI looks like a mix of Asha OS and Microsoft’s  Windows Phone operating system. The Nokia X is devoid of any Google services as it lacks GMS (Google Mobile Services) certification which comes with GMail, Google Play Store, Google Search, etc. It comes with Nokia’s own mapping solution HERE Maps instead of Google Maps. There is also a Nokia Apps Store for installing apps and games from the place.

*Umm see I don’t listen to music at all so I don’t have much experience in that field.However technically I do know a few stuffs but you can’t count on me for music. *There is absolutely nothing wrong with Lumia 720.Its a beautiful and sleek smartphone.It has a awesome camera as well as battery backup.Apart from that down the line the Lumia 720 is bound to get the windows phone 8.1 software update. *But since you’re stressing at music and you want to move away from android you can even give HTC 8X a try.The HTC 8X comes with beats… Read more »
