Have bought this cell phone yesterday. It is a very nice cell phone considering its price. The features are very different from C1 and other dual-standby models.
Just to clear the confusion, it can be configured to work both as 'dual-standby' and 'dual-active' To me this is a great feature for such low-end device with a relatively cheaper price.

Pros:
-Excellent sound quality
-Vivid user interface

Cons:
-When used alongwith memroy card, the phone is prone to restarts, esp. during messaging, I have experienced it twice and it is only my 2nd day.
-You can receive calls on both sims, but once you have got call - say on SIM1, during the call SIM2 will be offline (but considering the price, you can't complain)

So all in all I'll give it 9/10

got this fone 2 days ago for the price of 1,490php. i got the red one coz a lot of people likes the black one, i want to be unique haha, i also bought microSD card and transfer mp3 files and mp3 ringtones. for my convenient i created separate folder in the card for mp3's and ringtones. so far i don't have any problem with this phone, great buy and worth the money i spend.

> In reply to Nikita @ 2011-10-13 17:29 from U@b@ - click to readDifference between X1-01 and 101 is the design: X1-01 is more shinny feeling, Dedicated Music play Keys: X1-01 has which 101 doesn't, Battery: BL-5J 1320mAh vs BL-5C 1020mAh. My suggestion is if you don't listen to Music 3-4 hours a day, 101 is ok for the price is less. Otherwise, you can spend more to get X1-01.

my friend and two cousins also bought nokia 101 when they saw mine they are easily attracted and amazed on my phone. but them they are not having problems like mine. i might say they are lucky and im the unlucky one. hahaha.

but i still recommend the nokia 101. not all phones have defect guys.. wish you were lucky :) or if not go to Nokia Care......

Better buy it somewhere else even a bit expensive but having a bug free phone is sure worth the extra pesos spent.

i have this phone, no any problems at all no restart,shutdown,voiceleakage or loudspeaker problem. It works perfectly nice speaker and easy to use it worths its price and one thing more when both of the sims are switched on it shortens the battery life if both sims are used its battery is not good enough.

please suggest me which to buy between x1-01 & 101. x1-01 is buggy but lots of people say bugs are out by 2nd fw update. 101 is far less buggish but i am doubtful about the battery. i own a 5233 so i know the power of bl-5j of x1-01. bl-5c isn't that bad, but i think it will fall apart in dual sim as the requirement is double here. please only users of these phones help. i will buy one of thsese before diwali. thanks.
