Nokia X2-02 review: Two in one


Another dual-SIM phone by Nokia should be about as surprising as snow in Finland. And while we can understand it if you don't exactly brace yourselves for a shocker, being prepared won't hurt. The Nokia X2-02 has some real nice treats for all of you...

Dual-SIM, dual-standby phone ; SIM manager with dedicated settings for up to five SIM cards ; Dual-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 2.2" 256K-color TFT QVGA display ; S40 6th edition ; 2 megapixel fixed-focus camera ; QCIF video recording at 15fps ; Stereo...

No 3G ; Basic still camera and video ; Doesn't charge off USB ; No screen brightness control ; No smart dialing ; No flashlight

We're not sure whether anyone looking for a dual-SIM phone cares about the music-playing skills. Alternatively, the presumably younger crowd drawn by the impressive audio package is probably not too interested in dual-SIM telephony.

Nokia X2 (slate, T-Mobile, Prepaid)


You know things are really moving fast in the cell phone world when even the prepaid phones are sporting full keyboards. They haven't taken over the space completely, but handsets built for texting are slowly gaining dominance on the budget side of the...

The Nokia X2 has a solid, straightforward design and a comfortable keyboard. Messaging options are plentiful and call quality is satisfactory

The Nokia X2 has a low-resolution display and lacks a dedicated volume rocker. The speakerphone performance wasn't ideal, and data speeds top out at EDGE

The Nokia X2 offers basic communication options, plus a couple of extras, in an agreeable design. What's more, it delivers a full keyboard at an affordable price.

Nokia X2 review: Fun times two


When you're shopping on a budget, getting the most bang for your buck is what counts. And the Nokia X2 is keen to give you an exchange rate that's hard to beat. This no-nonsense bar delivers a 5MP camera with flash, great audio with stereo speakers...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 2.2" 262K-color QVGA display ; 5 megapixel enhanced fixed-focus camera with LED flash ; QVGA video recording at 15fps ; Series 40 UI, 6th edition ; Dedicated Facebook app ; Bluetooth (with A2DP) ; Standard microUSB...

No 3G ; No GPS receiver ; No WLAN ; S40 is outdated and lacks multitasking ; No document viewer ; No smart dialing ; Below par still and video camera ; Wobbly microUSB port

Typical Series 40 phone, the Nokia X2 didn’t have many major disappointments in store. There’s not much to rave about either. The camera was the only really questionable feature, though some of the software issues are off-putting too.

Nokia X2


Nokia's X-series range is beginning to fill out a little bit now, and you can see common design themes between this phone and the X5 and X3 phones in particular, which show that Nokia is trying very hard to introduce a similar look to this range of...

Nokia X2


The Nokia X2 is a mix between a basic prepaid cell phone and a smartphone. It has strong calling and messaging features and offers internet access, but the phone's operating system and outdated browser get in the way of full mobile web access. This...

A QWERTY keypad makes this phone good for text messaging and social networking

An inferior browser and lack of Wi-Fi capability on the Nokia X2 make the phone a poor choice for internet connectivity

The Nokia X2 is a good prepaid phone for calling and messaging, but its operating system and browser are outdated.

Consumer review by:

"Great phone at price - bonus=strong shuffle MP3 player."


Excellent phone for short money, but prepare for clowntime when dealing with T-Mobile account administration.

Better key shape than Blackberry, decent screen. No touch screen (can't stand them). Very pleasantly surprised at MP3 sound quality through good earbuds, not perfect but good enough for me to stop carrying my Sansa player. FM Radio is a bonus and rece

In a word, T-Mobile. Their billing administration on prepaid monthly is TERRIBLE. We have more than one of these in the family and they've dropped off auto-bill to credit card twice. Re-activating is a giant pain in the @55. With Boost, you can re-act
