This is a great phone!
I am online 24/7 on facebook.
It's qwerty pad is much better than a blackberry curve.
And I am never short for pages cause its browser saves data.
Browsing is fast through edge.
There are apps out there where you can read pdf and other office documents.

You can add me on facebook and ask me anything.
This phone is a good choice.

Krishna Acha, 10 Jan 2013Pros: Battery Life: good battery life (so far) One full charge can handle two days of load... moreThanks Krishna. I was planning to buy nokia 205, after reading your comment i dropped my plan to buy the mobile. I have 700+ songs in memory card, it will be tedious task to prepare playlist in the mobile.
LAW321, 08 Jan 2013 only advantage of nokia x2-01 is that it has micro usb port and nokia 205 doesntI heard that there is no dialled call,misd call,receive call list, it has only all call list? Or has it any problm of connectn failing while browsing net via gprs/2g?
Battery Life: good battery life (so far) One full charge can handle two days of load, includes approximately 60 minutes of FB, 120 minutes of browsing (news/e-mails/chat/etc.), 200 minutes of music, phone calls for about 300 minutes. These numbers are approximate but based on two weeks' usage.
Browsing and Data Consumption: browser speed is okay (not bad) and accessing internet is handy, data consumption is very less and it hardly uses any data for the kind of browsing I do. I have not downloaded anything so far, yet the data consumption is less.
QWERTY keypad: this is awesome, I love it. My fingers are broad and yet I'm able to use it with ease. It's actually fun to use this keypad over Asha 200. Each key is spaced out nicely. Have to appreciate the designer for bringing this feature.
Phone: the overall phone design, color (I got a white foreground and orange background), its light weight is very helpful, I where there are accessories available as well (like a pouch to protect the phone from scratches)
Music: I will mention the music quality and clarity in this section and I have some bad news to share as well. The quality of the music is awesome and it's clear, radio is okay but not as good as the music that you store in your mobile. I have never experienced problem so far with accessing music. I wish there are volume control buttons on the side to have a quick control over volume.
Call list: The phone does not contain different call list like: received calls, dialed calls, missed calls, etc. It only has one list called ‘All calls’. It is preferable to have different call lists for user convenience.
2G network connection issue: the network gets disconnected often when used from the same place. I don't have to comment when in the move. It's sometime impossible to use GPRS (2G) while in move.
Text management (SMS): I am unable to delete multiple messages at the same time. This is totally annoying to delete one after the other. This is annoying and not good for those who use this mobile for texting a lot.
Music management: Very poor in terms of creating playlist; can't add multiple files at the same time...means you got to add each music file separately to your favorite playlist. This is annoying as well.
Dual SIM: its dual standby and it means the network for the other SIM will be completely 0 and no network coverage is there. This is not a convincing feature.
VGA Camera: it’s poor in terms of quality. I wish it had a 2mp camera for nice photo taking experience for this class of phone.
I might have more but trust this information will be useful. I'll keep you updated if I come across something else. ByE!!!
