Nokia X2-01 - Well Equipped for its Price


Every once in awhile it's a real treat to come across a low priced handset that's designed to make the average user feel like they've got everything they need at their fingertips. While Nokia's higher end mobile segment has been taking brutal hits,...

If you’re looking for a low budget handset that offers you basic functionality, good audio quality, a full QWERTY keypad, decent battery life and social networking connectivity built in, the X2-03 is the perfect handset. With a price tag of Rs. 3,800...

Nokia X2-01 review: Loads of attitude


Good build, QWERTY keyboard and one-touch access to music: the Nokia X2-01 has the right ingredients to serve and entertain. And if you're looking to buy cheap, it's an offer that's hard to beat. Nokia has long made the low-end their fortress and X2-01...

Entry level QWERTY messenger bar ; Quad-band GSM/EDGE connectivity ; 2.4" 256K-color QVGA TFT display with great sunlight legibility ; VGA camera with QVGA video recording at 24fps ; Series 40 UI, 6th edition ; Stereo FM radio with RDS ; Bluetooth 2.1...

No 3G ; Piss poor camera ; No smart dialing ; No USB charging

Alright, we have to be fair. The Nokia X2-01 made it all so easy for us – it was a quick in and out. Now, obviously there’s a lot of things missing but it would be wrong to say it’s all for the sake of being cheap.

Nokia X2-01 (T-Mobile)


The X2-01 includes a home screen shortcut to Communities, which hooks into your Facebook and Twitter accounts. The app displays status updates, and lets you post your own updates or photos. Deeper down in the menu system, the X2-01 offers basic instant...

Clear voice quality. Good music player. Stellar battery life

Useless VGA camera. No 3G. No voice dialing. No camera shortcut button

Not the world's most exciting phone, the Nokia X2-01 is nonetheless a good deal for budget-minded T-Mobile prepaid customers.

Nokia X2-01 - Music Phone


Here we review the Nokia X2-01 and take a look at the design of this Nokia phone and also look at the how well the user interface suits the Nokia X2-01.

The Nokia X2-01 is good looking sturdy phone that lacks several features that are found in most high-end phones including others from the same X series family. The Nokia X2-02 comes preinstalled with fun applications that appeal to young users who just...

Nokia X2-01 Review


The most found element on the phone is plastic, though there is no compromise on the build quality. The phone feels premium and looks in a way which gives an impression that this is a sub 10k phone. Its slim, curvy, solid and sexy.

Great QWERTY keypad ; Great design and built ; Great battery life ; Value for Money

Worst camera ; No 3G ; Messaging UI needs work

Though Nokia X2-01 has nothing new to offer, its has the wow factor! And all thanks to Nokia’s design team. Appealing design which makes it feel richer than it actually costs. No matter the age group it is targeted on, everyone gets an immediate crush...

Nokia X2-01


If you get over the fact that the X2-01 is a slightly strange-looking device, it soon becomes apparent that this is really a cut-down version of the Nokia C3-00, dropping the WiFi support from the C3 and downgrading the camera to a very basic 0.3...

Great Basic Phone


Great phone that handles calls/text extremely well but leaves a lot to be desired as far as web browsing...but's an $80 phone... Bluetooth works very well. If you want to ditch your landline, but would love to still use the landline phones in...
