About Nokia X10
Nokia X10 is the second mid-range 5G smartphone from HMD Global under the new Nokia X series. It comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and it’ll cost you about $365 to purchase – there is also a 4GB RAM and 64GB storage which is cheaper.
With the price above, the Nokia X10 just made the cut as one of the affordable 5G smartphone to buy. But this does not mean it’s the best in that category.
To know more about this device, you need to know its key specs. Let’s start from the chipset, CPU, and GPU.
Chipset, CPU and GPU
The chipset inside the Nokia X10 is Snapdragon 480 5G. This is an affordable 5G chipset manufactured by Qualcomm. It was built on 8nm process and while it’s a good chipset, there are other chipset that performs better.
While the chipset might not be a heavy performer, you’ll enjoy the phone not getting heated up. It’s Octa-core CPU is clocked at 2.0GHz paired with the Adreno 619 GPU.
So, with this SoC, you’re getting 5G connectivity but it won’t be that great when playing heavy games. And doing multi tasking might not be so smooth.
In conclusion, if you really want to enjoy using the chipset, CPU, and GPU of the device, you might want to limit the number of heavy games and multi tasking.
There is a quad rear camera for this device. A 48MP main camera, 5MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor. Upfront is an 8MP camera placed in the center punch hole at the middle.
Sadly, there is no special feature coming with the cameras of the device. There is no OIS, no gyro-EIS, and no zoom feature. Rumor has it that this phone can record 4K video but it’s not confirmed.
While the camera features would have added to the swag of the device, but not all phone users actually make use of them. So, for an average user, they won’t even notice these features missing.
Display and Build
The device comes with 6.67-inch FHD+ IPS display without higher refresh rate. At a time when smartphones are coming with 90Hz, HMD Global decided to not include it in Nokia X10.
For its build material, the device has Glass front, plastic back, and plastic frame – typical mid-range materials. There is no water, dust, scratch, or splash resistant ratings for this device. So, you might want to use protective case and glass for the device.
Although the design of the device looks really good but that is all there is to it. It’s just beautiful but lacks key display features for you to actually enjoy using the display.
RAM, Storage and Battery
Nokia X10 comes in two models – 4GB RAM + 64GB of storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB of storage. You also get to enjoy storage expansion via microSD card.
The battery capacity is non-removable 4,470mAh with 18W fast charge. HMD Global is claiming two days of battery use.
Well, I’ll say that depends on who is using the phone and what it’s been used for. I mean, 4,470mAh is not that big to last for two days when in 5G mode and playing online games.
Software and Connectivity
Nokia X10 runs Android 11 out of box along with Nokia’s own skin software. According to HMD Global, the company be providing three years of security updates monthly. But, there is no news of major software update which means you’re stuck with Android 11 forever.
For connectivity, you get the following; 5G, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot, Bluetooth 5.0, and USB Type C.
