Nokia X3-02 - Many Reasons to Buy One


When the X3-02 came to India, little did we know that Nokia would have a good feature phone to offer. The price looked attractive at first glance, but does it have something more to offer than the regular features that you can find in many mobile...

The Nokia X3-02 is priced at Rs. 8,404 (MOP) which is very attractive for such a handset. Now what really matters here is that the phone scores well in almost every area. Sure, it takes some getting used to the new keypad format, but after a while...

Nokia X3-02 Touch-and-Type review


It's a difficult time for feature phones, with smartphones fast becoming a viable option at the low-end of the market. On the one hand, most users are

Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type Review


Having looked at several models from Nokia's Symbian^3 smartphone range over the past few months – including the range-topping Nokia N8 – today it's the turn of more basic fare from the company. The Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type may have a touchscreen but...

At £159 SIM-free and unlocked, or around £89 ($138) on pre-pay, it’s also reasonably affordable. Entry-level smartphones like the Android-powered Orange San Francisco offer strong competition at around the £99 ($154) pre-pay mark, but at the expense of...

Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type review: Slim and sharp


Nokia is trying really hard to build back some lost trust. The new Symbian^3 smartphones are just one weapon in their armory. The other is the touch-enabled lineup of feature phones called Touch and Type. S40 has never before been into the touch...

Nokia X3 review: Music X-three-M


The Nokia X3 is our first glimpse into the new Xseries and we're excited to see how things have changed since XpressMusic ran the show. And they have changed, the new angular look is a testament to that. The S40 on the inside has changed as well,...

Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type (Unlocked)


The 2.4-inch, 240-by-320-pixel display is on the large side for a small phone. The plastic resistive display is bright and colorful, but Nokia's venerable font looked a little blocky. The haptic feedback was a misfire; it often trigged multiple times,...

Attractive and lightweight. Solid call quality. Easy to use one-handed. Good camera and music player

Cluttered home screen. "Typing" is tough without a QWERTY keyboard. Finicky haptic feedback. Shaky data connection. No voice dialing or GPS

The unlocked Nokia X3-02 is yet another model in a long line of capable, unlocked Nokia cell phones that few Americans need or want; if you're one of the few target customers, Nokia offers much better options.

Nokia X3 (Unlocked)


The X3 is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) device with no 3G or Wi-Fi. I tested the phone with an AT&T SIM, though it also works with T-Mobile and prepaid cards both here and overseas. The battery cover is quite stubborn, though; between that...

Clear call quality. Solid music and video performance. Good battery life

No 3G. Poor, buggy camera. Cramped numeric keypad. Cluttered user interface

The Nokia X3 is a decent budget phone for anyone looking to save money on an unlocked GSM device, but it serves no other purpose.

Nokia X3 Touch and Type Review


The Nokia X3 Touch and Type (also known as the Nokia X3-02) is one of those phones that won't break the bank, but might still blow your mind. Why, you ask, might such a simple-looking phone make me stop in my tracks? With the name being an indication...
