Nokia XL Overview
The Nokia XL is the largest handset of the Android-based Nokia X range. The XL has access to Microsoft services (such as SkyDrive) and Nokia services, including HERE Maps. It does not have access to the Play Store, but it does have access to third-party app stores such as SlideMe and Yandex. Apps can also be side-loaded from a microSD card.
The XL features a 5" IPS LCD display (the largest in the Nokia X range) with a WVGA resolution of 800 x 480. Like the Nokia X and the Nokia X+, the Nokia XL comes with a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. It has 768MB RAM, plus 4GB internal storage and a microSD slot that supports cards up to a capacity of 32GB.
One of the stand out features of the XL is that it is dual SIM, i.e. you can insert two SIM cards at once and switch between them. The SIM card size that the XL takes is microSIM.
The XL has a good range of connectivity options: Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi and 3G are all included. On the back of the handset there is a 5MP camera, whilst there's a 2MP front facing camera for video calls.
In terms of design, the Nokia X range borrows the style of Nokia's Lumia handsets, which run Windows Phone. Bright colours frame its black display, while the colours on the home screen can be rearranged and resized as you see fit.
