The interface might looked different from your usual Android devices but make no mistake: Nokia X is indeed an Android device although the OS is based on Android Open Source Project codes and doesn’t have the native access to Google services. Hence, users are able to install Android apps into the device rather easily.
Nokia X apps can be obtained through either Nokia Store or third party app store such as Yandex. Additionally, users are also able to install apps directly into Nokia X just by loading the apps’ .apk files into the phone’s internal storage or memory card, browse those files through a file manager, and run them.
In the demo above, we used Kangkung Crush Fiasco by Weraku Games which was Lowyat.NET App of The Week for the fourth week of February 2014. The folks at Weraku Games are kind enough to allow and provide us with the games .apk files to be loaded into the Nokia X.
Stay tuned for our full review of the device coming your way soon. For the meantime, don’t forget to check out our hands-on overview of Nokia X right here.
