In my experiense i discovered that its 3G phone but we will get only 30 kbps speed. We cann't get morethen 30 kbps speed with 3G internet plan subscribed sim also.
If you like mobile gaming i am strongly recommend this phone. This phone keypad is very smooth and very quality. I had played many java games from 1 year and my phone keypad is not dammaged 1% also...!!! Very good for typing text messages. Its support to view TXT files (but not unlimited text) bluetooth is working perfectly. Its support memory card upto 16GB. Preloaded opera mini available in this phone. Other features= image editor, alarm (sound is low but not too low, we cann't adjust also) sound equilizer with adjustable bands... Very good phone i love my nokia c2-01
Its support 240x320 flash games and flash screensavers (extension is .swf) but cann't playing flash videos. Random wallpaper feature very nice (It can choose random wallpaper from selected folder)
Don't use opera high memory versions in this phone. Try to use opera 4.4 (or any old versions like 4.3 4.2) low memory version with all signed version for superb and smooth internet access.
I am using it since 2 years. Very good phone. Currently this phone Price is 3700 to 4000 indian rupees. No problems with this phone i love it. Guys i am enjoying high speed browsing and download with maximum 30 kbps. By using 3G sim also i got only 30 kbps speed. Small problem... Sometimes its automatically restarting. But its very rarely. 3.2 mp Camera (for capturing pictures) is good but not very great. Video clarity is good but not very good. It can capture videos in two different resolutions (High quality 320x240 and low quality 176x144) ear phones (microphone) is below average. It can play audio formats= mp3, acc, amr, midi, mid. Video formats= (mp4, 3gp, avi) ( supported video codacs are mpeg-4, h263, divx and xvid with 15fps ) supported video resolution is 320x240. Its perfectly running all java apps and java games. It is a powerful java 2.1 phone for rough usage. Other feature(s) which is discovered by me= by downloading any file from UC browser, we can open media player and we can play any video or audio!!! (but its not minimizing) its capturing videos in 3gp format only. Superb battery backup with 2G and 3G. After full charging the phone I am using 5/6 hours non-stop internet!!! (EDGE 25 kbps speed)
arjun, 01 Oct 2012this phone doesn't support java appliation more than 1mbhos .. U don't know about it
Hema, 30 Sep 2012best mobile super futurerthis phone is no use...screen is very small,and doesn't have 3.2 mp camera
Screan is very small, So not good for internet & watching videos.
Stucks when playing mp4.
Voice call quality is not good.
Keypad is hard.
I have a doubt that it really has a 3.2 mp camera or its just a myth becoz dont find it that clear(images are very dark)
it cost u 4000 so add more 1500 & buy 5233 or any other, no matter if it takes some more days but u'll get a better phone
chovdyr, 30 Sep 2012Can i use whatsapp on nokia C2-01?maybe we can't. C2-01 doesnt belong to the list of supported s40 phones of whatsapp for s40, but C3,X2 they can.
I bought Nokia C2-01 two days back. After using it found below pros and cons about various features-
1)voice clarity on call - average or poor compared to other nokia mobile. There is static noise and distortion during call at both ends which makes you feel uncomfortable. After every 10-15 words, one word will be distorted partially or completely during conversation. Due to this you feel like shortening call and hang up. Irritating. There is voice clarity feature but i didn't notice any improvement even after activating it. This one issue makes it a bad mobile. But I haven't come across many user reviews about this on gsmarena.com. This is not about my handset alone, all c2-01 handset has some voice clarity issue same is what mentioned on other website reviews and tests if you will google search with words “Nokia C2-01 background static”. Invite more opinion from users on this.
2)call /conversation volume – compared to low even at max volume setting. Bit irritating if you are in a noisy place/ road
3)camera - more than 2 mp but less than 3.2 mp images compared with other mobile. Images are clear but only in bright light. Low light makes worst / dark images. There is photo edit option so you can adjust brightness/contrast which is little bit helpful but not much. It takes 3-4 seconds to save images after clicking.
4)Video - good video quality but only in bright light.
5)Loud speaker - Low volume even at max setting. Quality-good/ok
6)Headset - average or little bit poor quality output during radio and music player with supplied nokia headset. it may be better with other headset but not sure not tested.
7)design - robust. strong. lookwise good. don't look cheap
8)performance - slow compared to samsung but this is true for all low end nokia mobile. It will take 2 seconds to open sms messages after clicking. It takes 3-4 seconds to save images taken thru camera.
9)voice recording - average quality for outside sound but good if you are recording fm radio or recording call voice.
10)memory card - when memory card has more data on it, data access becomes slow in memorycard, even camera images takes more time to save.
11)Keypad - keys are bit hard and makes clicking sound while pressing it. Calling key and call end key is very hard to press. bit irritating. but otherwise ok. big enough so that you can't click any other key by mistake
12)Display - no backlight adjustment feature. Low legibility in outside direct sunlight.
Side view angle - you have to keep handset straight to eyes to see images /text clearly. Very bad side view angle clarity from right hand side of handset if you tilt it even little bit.
13)Battery life - good battery life. 8 hours talking without loud speaker.
14)3g/ internet/ browser - not tested/not used by me
does everyone that says they have restarting problem with this phone has their phone already updated to latest software version 11.20?coz im not experiencing that problem with my phone.i could say i have no problem with this phone software at all.satisfied with this phone.lots of features than i expected when i was just planning to buy it.plus i can run up to three apps and minimize them at the same time,with its product profile having edited.good phone :)
Uday shetty, 25 Sep 2012I have very unhappy in this handset,always i am facing interenet problem in this mobile,so i a... moreSee your internet setting.No phone can give you a good internet experience in this price range if Internet setting is not ok.
It is really a very nice phone along with good quality keypad,camera with 4x dig zoom,speed internet with dwnlds n uplods n also social networking, etc. According to me,most of the touch phones do not last longer n are very problematic. Therefore, u should go for nokia c2-01 if not nokia x2-00. Trust me u wont sacrifice anything except touch screen, qwerty and wifi in this phone.Hey,aftr buying this phone do not forget me ok. Bye. Have a nice product.
