wreck, 26 Jun 2011Heres the true full-review of c2-01 and cedar. Nb: if some one is intending to call this bias... morethis what i hate some people just keep on bashing certain phones.if you own a better phone that doesnt mean all other phone are worthless.but just wanted to tell you that after I checked at the nokia's website it tells that c2-01 can play VGA videos although the frame rate might be greatly rubbish but still a point for you to check out.also I checked CEDAR's screen quality with my colleague. and I found that it has extremely poor viewing angles in comparison to nokia's ClearBlack Technology.it offers great clearity under all conditions.and so I feel is that cedar's screen is over-hyped.although still for the feature it offers SE CEDAR>C2-01
I have buy Nokia C2.it is nice phone but its keypad is very bad i have many times download a themes and its switch off?

Cedar- above average quality, better than x2.
C2- above average loudness with average quality. Headset supplied is poor and below 500rs
Cedar- excellent loudness with outstanding quality. Slightly better than x2.
Headset supplied is good and costs 1060rs in market.
Max bitrate should be below 1000kbps for hassle free playback. clarity improvement ends after 880kbps.
Videos must be below 320*240 resolution else played as audio..
Max bitrate should be below 5840kbps for hassle free playback

Partial os, allows you to create folders and move files to wherever you like.
Partial java, multitask is not there along with smartdial and various other goodies.
Display brightness cant be adjusted.
Alarm loudness is low.
Sony proprietory java
Easy to use when prev phone is sony. Else gotta get familiar.
No java limit, rename the .sis 2.4mb version of angrybirds and the only handset that accepted the file without 'java error' among samsungs,lg's,s40's.
Multitask is available, minimise even 10+ apps and the phone continues running smooth.
Smart dial is available.
Still java, and you can move .mp3 into music, .jpeg then to pictures..etc only. 'To unlock, enter code' feature isnt available
Can adjust brightness.
Can be modified in many ways using software just like using pc suite. Can upload new audio driver, camera driver, display driver,....

C2- good backup, usual nokia stuff.
27-33 hours under normal usage
Cedar- very good backup, very rare for a sony
38-45 hours under normal usage.
C2- tough build, usual nokia standard.No shutter key

Both support micro usb (2.0&2.1)
Both got 3.5mm jack
Both support microSD
Both got backlight alert for calls and sms.
Both have a similar 4x3 arrangement in picture gallery.

rohan6luv, 24 Jun 2011Just now updated my phone software version to v11.10 . Its awesome dude xtreme fast,xtreme st... morefrom have got it. phone sw updates or ovi suite. i have tried both but it show no updates available
[deleted post]No phone can multitask without a taskmanager key or a menu key as in s60 phones.
symbian 40 cant multitask yet.
And multitask doesnt mean runnin phone functions like music,multimedia msg... Different apps doing different tasks at the same time and can be minimised or maximised as you wish at the touch of a button that too without slowing the phone. Thats multitask.
iPhoner, 24 Jun 2011Just want to check, is this phone good when listening to music? and how abou it's camera? 3.15... morenoise distortion Is like my 3110 1.3mp.
3.2mp camera clarity is not even quarter of ma bro's c5 3.2mp.
Image clarity is judged by quality of sensor and not megapixels.
i use att wireless. does anyone have the wap gprs settings to connect to att wireless data?
