Any fone in this price range sucks they are all biased with their purchases since the dont know what to do with their lowerend fones..firstly sony ericcson cesar is a fone that too fools people although it pretends to have a large image sensor..but let me tell you it doesnt have a real 2mpx sensor..the only thing is that it takes images at par with the c2-01 which sports a 3mpx camera which in my opinion is as horrific as that of cedar's..both thw fones use outdated non qwerty keypads..which makes anything from going thru' menus to texting a sluggish experience both have almost the same battery life..however cedar on 3.5g network seem to last a bit lesser as comprd to the c2-01 i tried cedr with every netwrk i could and get a max speed/throughput of 3300kbps. About processing power obviously both phones perform at par with each other.. Both performed well with sd cards of upto 4GB but slowed down with a sdhc class 6 8Gb(abt 95% loaded). In terms of music quality cedar does performs a bit better as compared c2-01 but not so great when compared with sony ericsso'ns elm however sound quality is purely a subjective matter but i really found 3D audio and good bass in both c2-01 as well as cedar missing but considering the price they are just low end fones so dont expect them to replace ur (apple)ipods..but cedars really deserves appreciation for its a lil'bigger 2.2in screen but its not that great under the direct sun where as the nokia c2-01 screen literary seems to turn off under direct sun light..also the colour reproduction on both is bad.one thing i personally like abg cedar is its transition dont expct them to b iohone like but way better than having none as in the case of nokia c2-01...video playback is what these phones arent meant for as the dont have the needed codecs(xvid).also watching videos on such a low res screen isn't fun at least u need 3.0in 640x480 or better screens or the nhd screen of nokia 5800.build quality on both the phones is more or less the same but cedar being little costlier than nokia has a better keypad...one morething cedar offers is 3D gaming while nothing as compared to games of android or iphone, still does good enough for what u pay...so all in all both the fones are more or less d same ..but still cedar takes d lead in almost every aspect but i would rather suggest u to look for cheaper smartphones like nokia 5230, e63,E5 as these phone have real os and have true multitasking however cedar also offers multitasking but its not like android or symbian like multitasking.In cedar the minimised app is just paused and hence its just psuedo-multitasking.but this is understood as it doesn't have the required resources to perform true real time multitasking ..however bot c2-01 and cedar can play music in the background while doing other tasks like web browsing, emails,etc
Hi men the phone looks good but the problem is it keeps loosing the sim tool kit known as STK menu. Whats the problem and it can be treated.
It's functions,internet,camera,downlodable games,ovi store,soc. networking,3G are fantastic.It really deserves more price !!!
This handset is very good.It is a low price 3g phone but
it is better than Nokia 2730c.I use this phone & I like it very much.This phone run Java app up to 1MB easily.Thanks Nokia.

C2-01 even at this price is not good choice.
Never mistook it as the best 3g phone in 5000range.
My 1st phone is nokia 3110, 2nd one is 3500, 3rd one is x2 and 4th one is SonyE cedar.
I dont own c2-01.
But have limited experience of it as 1 of my friend owns it.
He choosed c2-01 over cedar thinking of 3.2mp camera and lower price.
Heres c2-01 with x2 and cedar.
Audio quality is really poor, as if its a radio.
X2 got outstanding loud speaker, but got below average clarity,
cedar got the feeble speaker among 3, but good audio clarity.
Headphone output is poor in c2-01
Average in x2 but the high treble and no bass makes it irritating
Loud and clear output in cedar.
Screen quality is very bad in c2-01, just tilt the phone a little and its colors are completely mixed.
X2 got better display with fewer sides showing this .
Cedar is best among them with just one angle doing it.
Sensor size is very low in c2-01, usually as megapixels go up , sensor's size and quality is doubled, it hasnt happend here.
A single image takes a 20sec processing time ; interpolating from a lower sensor.
Same goes with x2.
Cedar got a real good sensor like in c5 and 6700, and captures colors vibrantly but fewer resolution, 1600x1200.
All three phones record video in qvga resolution.
C2-01 is 15fps, max video bitrate 680kbps
X2 is 18fps max video bitrate 880kbps
Cedar is 30fps max bitrate 1480kbps.
Video clarity in c2-01 is real bad due to poor display,
After 880kbps video bitrate no clarity improvement
Same goes in x2.
Clarity improvement upto 2628kbps when increasing video bitrate in cedar.
Both c2-01 and x2 plays qvga resolution only.
360x480,320x360,360x640,480x640 are not supported. Any size more than 320x240 is a no.
Cedar supports any video size upto 640X640 resolution
Battery is ok in c2-01 stands the least for 28-32 hours under heavy usage.
X2 really lacks battery backup maximum 12-15 hours even under normal usage.
Cedar got a stunning battery backup with very least 50-55 hours, even with heavy use including 11.5 hours of net.
3g speed is very low in c2-01.No hsdpa and hsupa. No true 3g
Cedar supports hsupa and hsdpa 3.5 and 7.2mbps.
X2 isnt a 3g phone.
C2-01 and x2 use s40. Both phones got just 64mb ram to run a OS likd s40 making them slow.
Cedar use sony proprietary java interface. Comparatively faster.
S40s doesnt multitask, adjust brightness or geo-tag the photos taken
Cedar multitask, geo-tag and can adjust brightness.
Every detail given here showed up when me and my friend tested these 3 phones.
Check them for yourselves if you doubt.
Buying c2-01 is a bad choice.
Better checkout sony cedar.
Sony cedar is expensive than c2-01 nd x2 so don't compare d features.
