    Nokia's X line up are hybridized software based off of AOSP and do not have Google services. I think they are an evolutionary dead end. I'm not sure I would try one unless I was getting a really good deal. If it is in the same price range as the Lumias, don't do it.

    For instance, every one of the Lumias you list gets 42.2 max download speed on HSPA (H+) and the Nokia X2 only gets 21.1 max. They seem to have spent the money on Camera and screen, but the 535 can match or exceed it there. Also the Lumias are proclaimed to get Win 10 Mo (carrier willing and I have a feeling there is no carrier in your upgrade path) so the App situation should keep growing for the WP budget models...

    If the lure of Android Apps is calling you, the X2 may be your device. But my understanding is any App that will require a Google Service is never going to happen.
