Shape and size

With a 5-inch display, this is no extra-large device. In fact, those with larger hands should be able to operate it one-handed.

Camera action

The XL has the best camera of the three, a 5-megapixel sensor on the back and a 2-megapixel sensor up front.

Operating system

Is it really Android? Under that custom interface, yes. What you see on top is Nokia's hybrid OS, called Nokia X Software Platform. Read all about that here.

Nokia rainbow

All the Nokia X phones feature bright colors and a soft-touch coating. The XL is the only one with an orange choice.

Side view

The XL feels pretty solid and hefty, and has a thick, sturdy unibody build.
