Considering the fact that this is a Nokia product, it has an egde when it comes to durability. The Nokia XL comes with Android Jelly Bean (4.12 Jelly Bean), a IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen which is 5.0 inches wide, 5MP rear camera and 2MP front camera with flash (rear only though). Now our Nokia can ping. A good smartphone if you ask me. Though this would be a kind of test for Nokia as this model is not top notch yet cos of its 768 MB RAM. Small huh? You know how recent Nokia products are. Light and still good. With similar designs; the flashy bright green, orange, cyan, yellow, black, white colours…
