Microsoft lists Nokia X2's camera to be a 5MP LED flash type with auto focus and one-touch capturing features, while Microsoft's page for Nokia Lumia 630 simply lists it as having a 5MP primary camera. Though both are listed on Microsoft, KpopStarz notes: "Nokia X2 runs on Microsoft's version of the Android system while the Nokia Lumia 630 is a Windows Phone-powered device."

Both have the standard support for Bluetooth and WiFi. WiFi hotspot is also available and both use USB charging. A dual SIM support, including micro SIMs, is also available for the two Nokia phones.
