Pricing will vary by region and retailer but as an approximate guide the Nokia X2 price at launch was €99 (before tax and subsidies) and when the Nokia X first launched it was priced at €89, so there’s really not too much in it.

As you can see, although the Nokia X is cheaper there really isn’t too much extra to pay for the Nokia X2 considering its benefits. The Nokia X is lighter with a smaller form factor and has a display with slightly higher ppi. However, the Nokia X2 has a faster processor, larger display, more RAM, better camera capabilities, a higher capacity battery and a later version of the Nokia X UI, which offers new features.

Ultimately if you’re thinking of purchasing either of these phones it seems worth paying a little more for the Nokia X2 when taking all of the above into account. Will you choose the Nokia X2 over the Nokia X?
