Nokia X3 Review


Welcome to the Nokia X3 review/information  page. The X3-00 as it is also known is a GSM only mobile is focused on music.  It is only the second phone that we known of to date that has an inbuilt FM radio antenna.  Apart from that it has also quite a few features that are a surprise since it is only a ‘lowly’ GSM network model.

Targetted as a ‘feature’ phone in slider design it look pretty good being made of good plastics.  However its keypad reveals it lower end position. The operating system is S40 based so it will run our free screensaver and wallpapers perectly – they will certainly improve the X3’s look very nicely!

The X3 also runs the latest version of the S40 operating system so all the usual Nokia programs are there.  It is also relatively fast so you shouldn’t have any complaints.  Believe it or not lots of people in developing countries which the X3 is marketed for use their phone as radios and will absolutely love this phone.  Since it also comes with a decent mobile web browser you can get data as well but at very low speeds.

Overall the X3 is like older 6500 except without 3G but with more features.  So if you mainly talk, text and just check your emails then this would be a pretty good model to get.
