Decent enough as a simple phone, if you can find it cheaply, but you're better off with a Nokia Asha

Excerpt: Despite the lack of a GPS, wifi, onboard storage or dedicated RAM to run software, & a camera of respectable quality (though it doesn't have that annoying shutter sound, makes for excellent quick snaps, ok night photography, & records-until-you-run-out-of-storage video), this phone makes a great backup, starter, or just plain simple phone. It's perfect for messaging via SMS/MMS, but has limitations with email (can't properly scroll through HTML-formatted MMS/emails).
Pros: FM Radio, Excellent (quiet) QWERTY keyboard, No Touchscreen (for those who think such things are horrid & overrated), Excellent music player & loudspeaker, Good internet experience with Opera, Good messaging (features, Long battery life, simple, effective Nokia design, MicroSD expansion (tested up to 32gb), Durable
Cons: Doesn't charge via USB, Camera (low resolution & no flash), can get slow if you don't clear out messages, etc., Low system memory onboard (shared between RAM for running the OS, phone features, & user-installed software) which necessitates use of an SD card for storage of as much as possible. Still, it has more RAM than other, No ampersand on the keyboard, A little unnecessasrily bulky, No GPS, No WiFi, Limited software offerings
Summary: Starting with the pluses. Excellent for texting, and nice features. Easy to use, and the navigation is pretty good, but setting up the phone's features does take a little time and effort. Great battery life. Very good volume from the speaker, a plus for those who are hard of hearing. Negatives: The antenna arrangement makes reception in bad coverage areas more difficult. Next, you need to consider how you are going to carry this phone when selecting a case.
Great Phone! Easy to use! Love the long battery life!

Summary: I wanted something without the "Touchscreen" as, i frequently text alot and I felt with this phone I had more control over what I type and how fast i can respond to an e-mail/message without worrying about pressing the wrong key...Very easy to use, has all the features i want in a phone. The only con would be the quality of the phone camera...other than that, I couldn't think of anything else.
Excerpt: This phone is great for people who need a basic phone with some addition featured common in smart phones - without paying the smart phone price. I personally have all the features and functions I need, minus WIFI connectivity and a WORD Document reader/editor. It gets the job done and more! I am not a person into upgrading every few years, I think this will be one of my die hard phones like my old Nokia 1100 :). Must update if it proves otherwise.
Pros: Cost, Durability, Many compatible apps available on OVI store
Cons: Loudspeaker volume is very good, but quality is not the best (if you care)
Summary: Is a juvenile phone, the fonts the screen everything about it. Perfect for a 10 year old or teenager. functionlity is good, except for voice calls, they are somewhat distant. The call log and it took me time to find it, is on the contacts menu. It has emotion characters. Like all nokia phones it does not have a 3 alarm, you will have to program this using the calendar. Is a heavy phone, more heavier than a blackberry, but a very sturdy well built phone.
Excerpt: Best mobile i ever used in its category. just could be better off with wifi, abetter camera 3.2mp, better internet browsing.a bigger screen would be nice but alast for such a cheap phone its value for price. Great job from nokia.

Excerpt: Nokia x2-01 is surprisingly the best budgeted phone nokia has ever launched. it has a qwerty keyboard which is really nice. the buttons are a little harder but works. the sound of the buttons is pretty annoying. the voice quality is also good. display is average. supports upto 8g.b. camera totally sucks. they shud have given it with atleast 1.3 megapixel. the camera is really disappointing. phone has some awsome killer looks. its size and everything, its pretty sexy.
