Nokia X2-01 Review

In X2-01, Nokia brings together a stylish QWERTY handset that delivers a good messaging and music experience. But does it perform well on other counts too? A closer look reveals the following:

Display and Design

This slate grey device has a plastic feel but feels sturdy enough. The edges of Nokia X2-01 are slightly curved and it is slim enough to fit into the pocket easily. The display consists of a 2.4″ QVGA screen of 320×240 pixel resolution. Images and text look relatively clear and screen visibility outdoors is mostly good. Below the screen is a directional pad in the centre surrounded by call and end keys, two navigation keys and two shortcut keys. X2-01 Nokia shows where priorities lie as one shortcut key is for the Music Player (opening the music library or FM radio) whereas the other is for Messaging (email, text and instant messages). The left side of this device holds the microSD card slot and microUSB port. The VGA camera lens and speaker are found at the back of Nokia X2-01.

Nokia X2-01 Specifications

Nokia X2-01 measures 4.7″ x 2.35″ x 0.56″ and weighs 3.79 ounces. It has an internal memory combo 128MB/64MB and a memory card slot that can support upto 8GB additional storage.

Nokia X2-01 Features

Nokia X2-01 runs on S40 6th Edition OS. It uses a simple interface, with a clean homescreen containing shortcuts that can be customized. Nokia OSS web browser helps in surfing on X2-01. Pages load fast and built-in social networking apps can be accessed easily. However, users cannot navigate between apps after opening one and this is an inconvenience. This device has Push email and Nokia Messaging 3.0 and supports Gmail, Hotmail, Windows Live, Ovi Mail, Yahoo and other services. Call quality is quite good and speakerphone volume is satisfactory. However, earphone quality is debatable.

Keyboard

The keyboard on Nokia X2-01 is clean and spacious, allowing users to type easily. The keys are raised and curved at the sides to easily distinguish them from each other. Keys offer good tactile response.

Nokia X2-01 Camera

Unfortunately, the X2-01 Nokia VGA camera really disappoints. Not only are the images grainy, the video quality is also below average.

Nokia X2-01 Themes

Interesting themes such as Silver Paint Clock, Green Network and Sleek Violet, among others may be downloaded from the Ovi Store for Nokia X2-01. While some are free, others have to be purchased.

Battery

Nokia X2-01 has a rated talktime of upto 4.5 hours and standby time upto 21 days.

Nokia X2-01 looks good and functions well as a messaging and media device. For those looking for a reasonably priced QWERTY device to check mails and messages and listen to music, this may be a decent option. However, those users looking for a good camera feature or 3G connectivity will have to look elsewhere.
