Different ways to navigate the Nokia X2

You can find your way around the new Nokia X2 in a number of ways; one being the new-and-improved Fastlane, but there’s more…

Control panel


Already a key feature on the Nokia X, Nokia X+, and Nokia XL, the version on the Nokia X2 has been enhanced.

Bringing the control panel into view is simple; just swipe down from the top of the screen.

However, the positioning of your finger is important. If you swipe down from the top, but to the right, you’ll expand a settings screen, which consists of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, data, location and mute toggles, as well as a screen brightness slide bar.

Pull down the control panel using the left side of the screen to access your notifications, showing anything you may have missed from your social networks, missed calls, emails or text messages.

Back button


The back button’s primary function is to take you out of your current app or feature, one step at a time.

A long press on this back button launches the visual multitasking screen. Here’s where you can scroll through any open apps and launch them directly.

Alternatively, hitting the close icon (x) will immediately shutdown the app.

Home button

In terms of functionality, this does exactly what it says on the tin; with just a tap, you’re out of what you were doing and back at the home screen.
