Nokia X2 Black Front

Nokia, on 29 April 2010, announced a new mobile phone. The Nokia X2. The latest addition to their ‘X series’ smartphones specifically targets young music lovers on a budget. The Nokia X2 is a classic candybar phone with a numeric keypad. It is scheduled to hit the markets in the second quarter of 2010.

A complete music phone, the Nokia X2 not only consists of a cool MP3 player, but also boasts of an FM radio. To control playback, there are special dedicated keys on the side of the phone and you can either listen to music through the speakers (provided 2 pieces) or a headset (a standard 3.5 mm jack). The playback on the phone can be controlled by the special dedicated keys provided on the side of the phone. The music can be played either through the speakers which are provided with the phone (2 pieces) or the provided headset with a 3.5mm jack.

Nokia X2 supports 16GB microSD memory card for storing mass music, Bluetooth 2.1 and USB 2.0. An ‘Ovi Player software’ with an easy interface is also provided to help you manage your music.

Integration with social networks is provided. (A quick access to facebook is enabled right on the home screen.)

One major disadvantage is that there’s NO 3G support for the Nokia X2. Online facilities can be availed via the built-in GSM/EDGE bands.

For a phone which is rumored to cost around 5500 rupees, the Nokia X2 sports a whopping 5 mega pixel camera. Nokia seems to be learning the tricks of the trade, offering a good camera for such a low price and not offering 3G services in a market like India. Let’s face it, India is way behind on 3G technology, and we still don’t have a definite date as to when service providers like ‘Airtel’ or ‘Vodafone’ will start offering 3G, and BSNL’s ‘Jadoo’ just doesn’t cut it.

Ovi by Nokia users can download the latest games and store applications. Nokia X2 also has e-mail and instant messaging support.

FINAL VERDICT –

Though not like the choice of the elite who would much rather go for the high end like Nokia N8 Review ( Click here for review), the Nokia X2 is an absolute delight for those smitten by the Nokia X6 Review (Click here for the review) but don’t have pockets which run deep enough to cover it. If you are music lover with a with an eye on your budget, go for the X2.

          Hi,

          Nokia X2 is comparatively good phone. To get the full performance of it’s camera, you have to take pics outdoors when the sun is shining really bright or indoors with proper lighting(room must be really well lit). The battery though is a concern. If you play music at full sound without headphones, it takes a whole lot of battery power. Also when making long conversations, the battery power gets drained quickly. In pc, use the “preview” option to view pics taken in nokia X2 at best clarity. There is a problem with the headphone.Dont insert the headphone plug fully into the jack. Try inserting little by little. After inserting the headphone plug into the jack, you’ll have to do a little bit adjusting, to get it’s full performance. The sound quality using headphones is good, but this adjusting is tedious …

    1. Hanging Problem – the phone hangs about in every app.
    2. It gets restarted very often.
    3. Camera quality is very very poor , not even like VGA camera
    4. Battery drains , hardly 6-7 hours .

    POOR POOR POOR Phone …………damn my 5500 bucks

    Nokia X2 has cool features. Music player very good, Camera pics are better than 4mp. (enlarge n see on your PC).Cool flash. I feel only uncomfortable with msgin. unable to save msgs as draft or as additional folders (only archive option for inbox msgs). Can not mark n delete inbox msgs. Still not that bad. Superb finish.

    Battery is bad cos a normal BL 5C batter comes with almost 1200mah capacity whereas X2′s BL 4C is of 860mAh. They put BL4C probably to give its thin finish.

    Nokia X2 is excellent mobile phone in this range, ppl are expecting too much within 5k.

    # Camera quality is good as per standards(but not in dark). This can be understood easily that not even dedicated digicams can produce quality images in dark without proper flash. So how can a mere LED Flash can do the job. that’s why? Noise Reduction setting might help a bit.

    # Battery is absolutely OK. Official talk time(13.5 hrs) isn’t feasible but 6-8 hrs talk time with enough multimedia usage is “awesome”.

    # Sound quality is excellent as it has dual stereo speakers. This is extensively tested on gsmarena.com, so be sure about this.

    # Build Quality is fresh & sturdy though color combination is quite not adorable.

    Go for this fone if you have budget upto 5k & keep updating phone software(i.e firmware) by Nokia Software updater3

    Guys, I recently bought this phone after screwing up my Spice M-7070. All I can say is that I wasted my money going after Nokia. Nokia never in my life. For guys looking for a good camera phone in this budget I recommend the Spice M-7070. The picture clarity of M-7070 doesn’t even compare to X2. The video quality of M-7070 is also better at 640X480.. By the way I want to sell my X2.. anyone interested??

    Hi All,
    I am using X2 since last one month with Airtel connection in Bangalore. But the problem is many a times it shows ‘ sim rejected’ despite other airtel sim working properly. But the same sim works fine with other handset after closely monitoring.
    secondly, battery is pathetic and won’t stay for a long time.
    Most of the features are old and were in Sony erricson k750i 3years ago.

    So my suggestion not to go for it till any solution from the Nokia care.

    Regards,
    Gopala
