Although, now the company has been acquired by the Microsoft, there are several reasons behind the action of the company to release an Android smartphone. Android and Apple’s iOS are the most dominating mobile operating system among the people. Some sources say that the step to introduce an Android smartphone by Microsoft is actually to prove that Windows Phone as best. Learn why you should not buy Nokia X or Normandy, Nokia’s Android smartphone.
Microsoft is trying to make users to use Microsoft products the most. Introducing the most loved handset might welcome lot of users to Microsoft products like outlook, OneDrive and Bing.
There are several reasons for buying an Android smartphone due to its quality but there are some hidden facts why you should not choose Nokia X.
Low Internal Storage
On this Mobile World Conference 2014, Nokia has unveiled a lower end Android smartphone which costs less than or moreover equal to the price of Nokia Lumia and Asha handsets. The worst thing about this smartphone is the storage. Nokia X provides only 4 GB of internal storage wholly and a little amount of space is accessible. However, Nokia X has the capability to accept external memory cards too.
Replaced with Microsoft Products
Though Nokia, a product of Microsoft has launched an Android smartphone, the phone has no pre-installed feature for cloud storage from Google. Nokia forces the user to use most of the Microsoft’s product, OneDrive.
Also, most of the Google services which comes pre-installed on a usual Android smartphone is not present on Nokia X. Products like Outlook, OneDrive and Skype comes pre-installed on Nokia X. It’s clearly seen that Microsoft is trying to bring Android users to Microsoft. This could even make users to switch to Windows Phone for convenience of usage.
Android lags on a lower end hardware
We do accept that Android is much better than other popular mobile operating system but still, Android is working hard on bringing updates for avoiding lag on a lower end handsets while Windows Phone and Apple’s iOS don’t have any lags on usage.
As per the users’ reviews, Nexus from Google is considered as not having much lags but as we go deep, the Nexus comprises of high configuration hardware which apparently makes Android to run smoother.
Nokia X just runs on a 512 MB RAM and 1 GHz processor. Though Nokia might have brought a modified and better performing version of Android to run on their hardware, there are less chance for the operating system to avoid lags.
Nokia might discontinue support at anytime
We could find clearly that this step to introduce Android smartphone is to imp the Windows Phone. Providing continuous update for Nokia X might be discontinued at anytime for making users to switch Windows Phone.
Main objective is to increase sale
Nokia is not much clear about user comfort on Android. Looking on the device’s price and the apps pre-installed, we could easily guess that their objective is to raise the sale of the device and also to welcome users to use Microsoft products. Microsoft well understands that people go crazy for Android and using this craze, they want people to use Microsoft products.
Microsoft calls Google as “Scroogle” and warns you not to get “Scroogled”
Microsoft has proven that Google is trying to get people’s personal information through their services offered. Scroogled.com is a Microsoft’s initiative which tries people not to use the Google products as the privacy protection is less compared to Microsoft’s. Microsoft believes that Google is selling people’s private information for advertising.
While Microsoft warns people about the Google products and their privacy, why should they promote Android handsets? There are a lot of advantages for Microsoft by this action.
Android Feels like Windows Phone
Nokia X comes with a modified version of Android which moreover looks like the interface of Android. If you a hardcore Android freak, you may not feel awesomeness when you used other handsets featuring Android. There is no information regarding the rooting for Nokia X still.
Nokia X could be best working smartphone for users who does not use hard. Nokia X might hold plenty of apps but slows down your phone very soon. If you are trying to buy a smarphone with low-budget, then you can go for it. If you love to use Google products on Android, then you may not choose Nokia X as they come with Microsoft products pre-installed. However, you may install it manually.
