Nokia X2 Review

Welcome to the Nokia X2 review. Released mid-2010 we think the X2-00 is another model targeted at the sweet spot between the low and mid-range end of the mobile phone market. The only major feature missing is 3G data capability.  We don’t expect Wi-Fi capability at this price range so does not count against it.  The X2 also has a number of cool features that will probably make it highly desirable in ’emerging’ markets like India, Africa, China and  South East Asia where 3G data is not so important.

The X series Nokia phones are music and media orientated so if that is what you are looking for in a phone then this is a good model to consider. In terms of functionality the X2-00 has basically all the functionality in higher end 3G phones like the 6700 Classic but in a GSM only version.  In additional to the usual stuff it has an inbuilt FM radio antenna, and decent 5PM camera.  With full Bluetooth functionality, 3.5mm headphone socket, stereo speakers and capable of playing all common video formats and a microSD memory card its works very well as a portable media player too!

Construction quality is very good for a relatively cheap mobile phone with a variety of colours to choose for you to choose from, what more can you ask for in this price range?

The Nokia X2 -00 runs on the Nokia S40 operating system and the latest JAVA version of 3rd party apps and games.  It also uses the latest FLASH Lite 3 so all our animated clock wallpapers and screen savers will work on them!

It is a relative cheap GSM only phone and definitely one you should consider if you needs are talk, SMS and emails. If considering a pre-paid package also consider buying one of these outright and just a SIM card from the network you want. It is also perfect for those who are shopping for their first mobile phone yet want something with a bit more than the basic without the price tag.
