Nokia X vs Sony Xperia E1, dual SIMs for India: Review


Two recent phone introductions for India are the Nokia X and the Sony Xperia E1. Both are available as dual-SIM handsets and are not too far apart in price, so today we’re looking at the Nokia X vs. Sony Xperia E1 in a dual-SIM showdown for India.

If you’re thinking of buying one of these this comparison may be useful, as we’ll compare the key specs so that you can see what they have to offer. The Nokia X is available in a dual-SIM option while the Sony Xperia E1 Dual is a dual-SIM version of the single-SIM Xperia E1.

The Nokia X has a 1GHz Snapdragon 400 Play dual-core processor and Adreno 203 graphics. The Xperia E1 Dual has a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 dual-core processor and Adreno 302 graphics.

The Nokia X has a 4-inch IPS LCD display with resolution of 800 x 480 and 233 ppi and theXperia E1 has a 4-inch TFT display with the same resolution and ppi.

RAM and Storage
There’s 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD to 32GB) for the Nokia X, and exactly the same for the Xperia E1.

Camera set-up
The Nokia X has a 3.15-megapixel rear camera with 480p video capture. The Xperia E1 has a 3.15-megapixel rear camera with WVGA video recording capability. Neither has a front-facing camera.

There’s a 1500 mAh battery for the Nokia X and a 1750 mAh battery for the Xperia E1.

Operating System
The Nokia X runs a special Nokia X software platform based on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The Xperia E1 runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

The Nokia X has 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, GPRS, EDGE and USB. The Xperia E1 has the same except that it features Bluetooth 4.0.

As you can see from the above specs there really are plenty of similarities between these two handsets, with the same screen size and resolution, same storage, and both lacking a secondary camera.
