Nokia X10 Review
Nokia’s announcement of the Nokia X10 created a lot of excitement and anticipation. The question is whether this device is worth spending on or not. To find out, we need to check out its key features. This is what we will be doing in this section.
Display and Design
The Nokia X10 and the Nokia X20 share a similar design. It is no secret that Nokia loves to play with minimalist yet attractive designs for its smartphones. This company does exactly this on this device even though it is a far cry from what we had on the X5.
To be honest, we expected more from Nokia when it comes to the design of the X10. This device doesn’t seem to be as attractive as the other smartphones in the same category. The rear cover comes in two color themes, snow and forest. Each of these themes features a slightly lighter shade towards the edges.
Asides from this, the rest of the rear cover is regular, what you expect from a Nokia smartphone. The fingerprint sensor is located at the side instead of on the rear cover. This is exactly what you have in the G10 and G20 from the same company. It seems that Nokia is trying to change the norm with the position of the fingerprint sensor on its devices.
Another conspicuous feature on the rear cover is the camera module. The camera module is round even though it features four cameras just like the G20. It also features an LED flash sitting at the left of the camera module. At the middle of the rear cover, just beneath the camera module sits the Nokia logo. This adds some uniqueness to this device.
So what did Nokia put in front of this device? The first noticeable feature is the IPS LCD that is 6.67 inches long. Right at the top-middle of the display lies a punch-hole selfie camera. Nokia also places its logo beneath the display in a chunky bezel format. The display has a density of about 395 PPI and a resolution of 1080 x 2040.
It is almost impossible to discuss smartphones these days without mentioning the camera setup. Arguably no one will purchase a smartphone without a set of cameras. With this in mind, Nokia equips the G10 with a number of cameras. We must say before we go ahead that there isn’t anything spectacular about the cameras of this device. They are pretty much the same as what you have in several of the device’s predecessors.
As we mentioned above, the rear camera module features four different cameras in a circular setup. The primary camera packs 48 megapixels while the ultra-wide camera packs 5 megapixels. Both the depth and macro cameras pack 2 megapixels each. The rear camera is equipped to shoot both 4K and 1080p videos at 30fps. This is probably the only improvement on what you have in previous devices.
The selfie camera features 8 megapixels, the same as what you have in the G10, G20, and a few other previous devices. This camera is also capable of shooting 1080p videos at 30fps.
Software and Hardware
This is one aspect of the Nokia X10 that its manufacturer impresses. Nokia equips this device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 5G chipset. This is already a guarantee that the device will perform optimally but Nokia marries it to an octa-core processor. With this, you are assured that the device will not be slow or hang when using several apps simultaneously.
This device features different RAM and internal storage capacities in different variants. For the RAM, there are the 4GB and 6GB variants while the internal storage features 64Gb and 128GB variants. This device runs on the latest Android 11 operating system.
This device packs a 4,470mAh battery. The battery is matched with a fast-charge feature of 18 watts. While the battery capacity is quite low, the fast-charge mechanism makes it acceptable.
