Nokia is trying hard to achieve its lost glory and this is the reason it has entered into the Android based phone market. Here are some features of these phones and how does one smart phone performs better than the other one.

Nokia X vs Lg L70

Display, Memory and Data features

The Nokia X is a Micro-SIM based phone that comes with IPS LCD Capacitive touch Screen that has got 16M colors. If Nokia X has got 4 inch screen then the LGl70 has got 4.5 inch screen. Nokia X has got 4GB of internal memory that can be extended up to 32GB with the help of an external micro SD card whereas LGl70 has also got the same 4 GB internal memory that can also be extended up to 32 GB. Nokia X supports GPRS and EDGE to a certain speed limit which is little less. LGl70 supports high speed GPRS and EDGE.

Camera, Operating System and Battery Specifications

Nokia X comes with a 3.15 MP rear camera and there is no front camera option which is available. The LGl70 comes with 5MP rear camera and there is a VGA front camera which is available. Nokia X comes with Jelly Bean that is v4.1.2 Android operating system where as LGl70 comes with the latest Kitkat that is v4.4.2 Android mobile operating system. If we talk about the battery specifications then we can say that the Nokia X comes with a Li-on 1500 mAh battery which offers 408h of standby time and 13h of talk time. The LGl70 comes with a Li-on 2100 mAh battery. Though LG’s battery sounds more powerful but the fact is that Nokia X’s battery offers more stand by time as well as talk time.

Processor and sensor details

Nokia X has got a Dual-Core 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor where as the LGl70 has got a Dual-Core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm MSM8210 processor. Both of these smart phones have got a Accelerometer sensor as well as proximity sensor. The FM radio option provided with Nokia X is a stereo FM radio and with LGl70 you can expect normal FM radio option. The another rpoint where Nokia scores more are the color features as Nokia X is available in many different color options such as Green, Red, cyan, yellow, black and white. Whereas the LGl70 is available on only two colors and those are white and black. Hence if you are planning to hold a colorful smart phone in your hand then consider opting for Nokia X otherwise LGl70 offers more features and is more advanced

All in all both smart phones are good as far as affordability and reasonable price are concerned. But if we talk about features and performance then the LGl70 scores more than the Nokia X. Hence if you are planning to buy any of these smart phones then consider opting for LGl70 as it is a feature rich smart phone and is available at an affordable price tag.

Is your fast lane beast suffering from rapid battery drainage? Yes! I am obviously talking about your cute colourful candy bar Nokia X!

Actually Nokia X is more about hardware and less about its specifications. There is no need to get surprised, it’s a budget phone and you have to compromise in its quality one way or another. Nokia manufacturers have nurtured their Nokia X hardware with intensive care under its price limit. But this forked android is lagging far behind in some essential features.512 MB RAM will surely conflict with the smooth running of applications. Its own video player cannot play high resolution video clips (no even 720p).Every time we have to visit third-party websites to get android applications; this might be exposing our Smartphone to vulnerable viruses floating on internet. Thus, these conflictions lead us to know that our Nokia X needs improvement in every aspect.

Nokia X

Talking about its battery, it has only got 1500mAh battery. What can we expect from 1500mAh battery? It is surely going to get empty after 4-6 hours of continuous usage. Nokia has failed to give better performance in battery backup of their first forked android but they have resolved this problem in their upper versions of Nokia X which are yet to arrive like Nokia XL. Nokia X being a budget phone had to suffer in some aspects so Nokia can’t be blamed at all .We has to utilize our low performance battery in filtered way so that we can make increment in its talk time.

Now here are some important tips and tricks which can extend your Nokia X battery life. Perform these actions, update your phone setting in this way and you will surely get benefited:

1)      Charging: Whenever you charge your Nokia X Smartphone, charge it completely. It increases battery lifetime and recycles the already stored charge in it. In layman’s language we say making it refresh.

2)      Display Brightness: Keep it as low as possible. But it is being advised not to keep it too low that it may harm your eyes.

3)      Speakers: Loudspeakers also take a genuine share from the battery of a Smartphone. So always use wired headsets because they consume less and minimise the use of loudspeakers.

4)      Bluetooth: It drains the battery of your Smartphone like a vampire. So, always make least use of Bluetooth and don’t use Bluetooth headsets at all because they not only drain faster battery but their longer usage is also dangerous to your health.

5)      Background Data: Always close background data when you are not running internet because it keeps draining your battery in background running applications like whatsapp, facebook ,skype, etc .

6)      Backlight Timer: Set a short time for backlight to go off when your phone is idle.

7)      You can also set your Smartphone on Flight mode when you don’t have to receive calls and notifications. But it’s not recommended much because it’s hardly possible for any one in these days to opt out of attending calls and messages. Its part of our lifestyle now.

Congratulations!!! Finally the most anticipated Nokia X has got its custom 1st ever custom ROM. Before installing custom ROM, It is very important to know you phone’s interior architecture. Nokia X is operating on Nokia x software platform 1.0 which is actually forked version of android 4.1 developed on Android Open Source Project (AOSP).This Nokia X platform can run almost 75% android applications which was made possible only because of brilliant effort from Finnish software giant Nokia. Nokia x was lagging behind because of few drastic anomalies which could not be ignored .Like It had got no support from any of the services provided by Google. It could never have been possible to run Google play store or Hangouts on this forked version of android4.1.0. A giant leap from xda members made it possible to get complete Google services worked on Nokia X by creating its vanilla custom ROM.A senior member of xda called as dhacker29 designed a custom Android 4.1.2 ROM for nokia X .This firmware is actually build from code Aurora branch jb_rel_2.0.3.Most fascinating thing is that no problems have been detected till now after installing custom vanilla ROM .It has shown improvement in noise issues during voice call, better network and better application support.

Nokia X

Here We Go:

Follow the steps given below carefully to flash your nokia x stock ROM and install custom ROM on it:

Simply download all the software’s given below from any source you like.

Before getting started please remove your sim card and sd card from your nokia X.

Open Nokia Care Suit and run Data Package Manager. Be careful at running Nokia Care Suit, if it fails to get authenticated then Select File>work Online>Ok.

People who have already downloaded custom ROM will need to transfer those files in c;/Program Data/Nokia/Packages/Products/RM-xxx(xxx will be your own product type).

Now you are ready to flash you Nokia X stock ROM:

Start Nokia Care Suit Software and open Product Support Tool for Store 5.0.Now choose Work Offline and remain in No Connection mode.

Go to Product Support Tool for Store 5.0 > File > Open Product.

Now Go to Update List and choose the stock ROM which you have already downloaded and then click start.

This needs a lot of patience .Now you have to wait for sometime till the verification process is completed and flashing starts.

Don’t worry if it misbehaves a little or shows error this is because the connection is lost at the time of flash start up.

Now plug in USB port into your PC.
Switch off your nokia x and simultaneously press volume down and power button and keep it pressed for a while (at least 15 seconds) till your phone vibrates .Release screen lock/power off button and after a while release volume down key also.

Connect your phone now with your PC through already plugged in USB.
