Asha-like music player

The Nokia X music player has a tabbed interface with four tabs - songs, artists, albums and playlists. Customizable equalizers are available from the advanced menu.

Music Player

The now playing classy screen shows the usual controls - shuffle, repeat, play/pause, next and previous songs. There is a scrubber, which you can utilize to skip parts of the song. Album art is available too.

The song will haged playing even if you exit the player - you acquire a shortslit in the Fastlane and on the lockclassy screen with play-pause-skip controls readily available.

Video player is part of the gallery

There is no dedicated video app, but all of your videos acquire listed in the gallery instead. You can share, delete or view detailed information from the swipe-able menu at the bottom of the screen.

The Nokia X is technically capable of playing 3GP/MP4/MKV videos up to 1080p resolution, but 720p or higher res usually results in lots of jerkiness and dropped frames, so we'd stick to SD if we had to utilize this one as a portable player. AC3 audio codec are supported, which is nice. DivX and XviD video codecs are not supported though.

The Now Playing classy screen offers very basic user interface with just a Play/Pautilize button and a scrubber.

Stereo Frequency Modulation (FM) radio with RDS

The Frequency Modulation (FM) radio on Nokia X comes with a neat and simple interface. It supports manual tuning via a dedicated tool at the bottom. You can scroll between stations too, and you can save up to four favorite stations.

The Frequency Modulation (FM) radio app

Just like with the music player, the Frequency Modulation (FM) radio will haged playing when you exit the app - you acquire a shortslit in the Fastlane and on the lockclassy screen with the station information and an off switch.
