Nokia X and XL benchmarks

Nokia X is a brand new platform but its app store felt acceptably full, considering it launched just a couple of days ago. There we found a couple of the usual benchmarks we run (there’s also the browser-based SunSpider) so we decided to find out how the Nokia X and XL stack up against the competition.

The Nokia X prioritizes affordability over performance, Nokia made it clear that Lumia is its top performer.

Still, the Moto G offers goodies like a quad-core processor (a Cortex-A7 no less) and a 720p screen, but it’s nearly double the price. The 4.5″ Moto G starts at €170, while the 4″ Nokia X and 5″ XL are €90 and €110 respectively.

The Nokia X and XL are certainly not the fastest phones around, but their price advantage over most brand-name smartphones is undeniable. Certainly, Android smartphones at the Nokia X price point don’t perform as well as the Moto G, so developing markets might fall in love with the Moto X and XL. Or traditional low-cost Android makers might beat Nokia at the price cutting game.
