Hello and assalamualaikum guys, today i want to make a review in my Nokia c2-01, i used this phone for three months and to tell you the truth, i'm really pleased to use this phone, here's why:
1.Suprisingly, sound quality is pretty good, even though is not a music phone.seriously, i think gsmarena has make a little mistake when they want to test this phone audio quality, the sound is better than nokia x2.the bass is pretty present, the treble is acceptable, and vocal is clear and crisp.(i used nokia wh 500 headphone, the sound is good and crisp}. not to mention is pretty loud, almost i dentical to 5130 xm, the stereo effect is better than samsung corby 2 even though there is no stereo widening effect setting. Anyway for music-holic, this phone can replace your mp3 player in no time!
2.Pretty nice price, in my country, Malaysia, it was only RM 275, around 65 euro, pretty cheap for a 3g phone eh??
3. good camera performance, the image is pretty good than nokia x3-00(last time i use it and so x2-00), the image is good, the color is pretty balanced and under control, BUT the image focused to much whitish color background which makes it a bit whitish color. but heck, i don't mind since i have my n8 for camera.
4.performance is fast and acceptable, there is slight lag when you open the web browser, but other than that, the performance is super good. big improvement by Nokia's S40.
5. the call and ring tone quality and loudness, well hands down, it is same like nokia 5130, is darn loud, in busy streets i still can make calls, can hear a ring tone clearly, and the alarm tone is very loud, same like 5130(but nokia 5130 is slightly louder). Anyway i'm very pleased by the sound loudness. Oh, there is no distortion or any cracking voice.
6. i never experinced any freeze or hang when using this phone, i use 16 gig micro sd card, it works flawlessly, if you have any problems with this phone, i think maybe you just update this phone software. my current version software is v. 11.10
7. Battery life is very good, for 3g, it can hold 2 days for mid usage, 1.5 day for heavy usage, for GSM only, it can hold 3 days in mid usage, 2 days in heavy usage. all i can say, the phone has a very good battery life. wayyyy better than nokia x2-00(which is 3gless)
1.Although is an 3g phone, the phone have no video calls, and the internet speed is some what slow for standard 3g phone. but well, i don't really use this phone for web browsing that much, just use opera mini(which is installed inside this phone, is 5 times faster than regular nokia's browser.
2. NO Darn MULTITASKING! weird, even Sony Ericcson's Java phone have Multitasking, so why Nokia couldn't put multitasking in S40?? weird.
3.video player is pretty choppy, so is video recording, is pretty poor, nokia x2-00 performed better, but never mind, i have an hd video recording phone.
This phone is a very good phone, enough for a budget user who can;t affort to buy and high end device, so in my opinion, i'm very pleased with it, and i may not change this phone until this phone is 100% damaged. anyway that's all my honest review.(i think) and good day and assalamualaikum.
ps: visit my blogspot, xenonmobile for more info
it does have one big setback..and that is it is very difficult to (or perhaps impossible as i have been unsuccesful so far) to connect it to a pc using usb data cable. it will really be good joke if one day a duplicate chinese version of this model comes out which can connect to a pc via usb cable easily...the fake one will be better than the real one...
i just brought dis phone is very nice awesome,make sense & comfortable c2-01 great phone
ANIL.CH, 19 Nov 2011Plz tell me How to increase this mobile battery life?C2-01's battery backup is upto the mark but using 3G for downloading or streaming will drain the battery a little fast . So Switch to gsm mode when 3G not in use,
use dark colored themes, avoid over charging and these might help you to add a day or more of heavy usage. Just try it.
CHITTI, 19 Nov 2011This is phone is super. Hey dost what are saying it is good.it is good for browsing but the battery talk validity is very bad.it work 4 to 6 hour not more.
just want a basic phone for texting so can anyone tell me how easy the screen is to read when outside?
venkat, 17 Nov 2011don't compare with any other brands. nokia always no.1 got it?? May be nokia is no.1 in cell mfg.but this is one the floap model from nokia. u and everyone knows bajaj is one of the leading bike mfg.is all models are sucessful? No. example aspire. Like that this c2-01, x2 are floap models of nokia. GOT IT????
and one of the successful model from SE is CEDAR. It beats c2-01 and x2 in every aspect.
AnonD-13154, 17 Nov 2011Thats the greatest mistake.
If you are spending the money,never ever decide over a specific brand.Hey sony ericsson already lost it's market to GFIVE,SPICE,MAX,ZEN,LEMON etc..etc..... Brands.
So better compare your phone with those brand phones and that makes sense. Whatever you'll do that doesn't make any difference with C2 01's popularity(compare C2 01 with cedar) and fame.
Most of C2 01 users like me are satisfied and contented with what C2 01 offers.
And one thing you're not a social worker to care for other's money and to say what is right and what is wrong.
Your phone Cedar doesn't even reviewed by gsmarena.
So Don't repeat the same cedar rhyme here.

All who are interested to buy nokia c2 01 please check out sony cedar.. Its worth buying and is way better than c2 01 in terms of performance.we were senseless for ignoring such worthfull cedar. Trust me guys its a fact and we must accept it guys..i myself feel ashamed for insulting cedarians unnecessarily. nokia c2 01 is a piece of c**p when compared to cedar. C2 01 always gives many types of software problems u all know that, so better switch over to cedar and enjoy every moment with it people ! Cedar rocks .. Hurrah
my phn was switch off once.i wl on that with in a seconds it wi restarted y?.i bought before 10 months only
