Chamath, 10 May 2012The best phone when it comes to endurance (Both battery and phone's physical hardness). I was... morePhone durability i have doubts. First time i dropped it and on a tiled floor it broke down. LOL!. Went to Nokia care since its still on warranty and they replaced the mother board. Mine is the Orange version and i cant remember if the keypad lights should be the same as the phones original color. Keypad lights are now like light bluish white and stock wallpaper is set to bluish theme. I remember having a orange keypad lights? if anyone can confirm please do.
I bought this phone as a spare phone last year and it works great so far. This phone handles my unlimited call and text on the same telco and a fallback when my postpaid n8 battery fails on me.
For the review, buyers should update it to latest firmware v7.5 (29-11-11) im not sure if that the latest so far since its been months (Nov '11 firmware date).
If updated hangs, resets, loss of signal, dual sim function has been better but sometimes it fails. v7.5 is stable enough. Micro SD Slot is primarily for storing music only. You cans store any file but the phone cant read it except music files so store music files only. Its greatest selling point is its loud speaker at the back. I use this now as a car kit loud speaker phone since its really loud and it can pick up your voice with no problems on handsfree mode while driving. Call quality isnt that good since its a cheap phone but you can still hear the speaker output nicely enough. You can also play mp3 even without the headset but headset is needed for radio due to reception requirement. For a basic Music player this phone is capable, both on headset and loudspeaker criteria.
For prepaid and multi-users it has some nice stuff.
It has a prepaid credit settin where it indicates available prepaid load and expiration date and will be displayed on screen (not sure how to use this not available for my telco). Another is it has call tracking feature. Not sure how this works but you can set it in minutes before initiating a call. Might be auto drop call when time reaches?
For people that share their phones and use different simcards, it has a Multi-Phonebook feature. Havent tried this but im assuming it can keep track of different simcard that stores their contacts to phone memory. So if simcardA is used/inserted, it will open up phonebook A. if simcardB is used/inserted it will open up phonebook B. You can set simcardC to access both phonebook A and B. (havent tried this yet since im the only one using it)
Battery wise i can use the loudspeaker while playing music while in bed and when i wake up theres still life in it for a days use. Using only headset can make this phone last maybe 4-7 days if on moderate music use.
I bought this for 1850php so its really worth it for a cheap phone with all its capabilities that im currently using it for. Hope this review helps. Already reviewed this a few pages back alst time but so far this is my latest and updated review.

raj anakai, 13 May 2012this x1-01 formate have only songs,it will not take pictures .it's very bore...are u dumb...wat a vague review...bore bcoz it has no pics..then y did u buy it in the 1st place?
nice n cheap...very good and loud sound and awesome battery back-up
i am recently purchased 20 days back.this is very stupid phone.every time signal problem and incoming caller voice clarity missing.dont bought this cell phone x1-01 this is my opinion
this x1-01 formate have only songs,it will not take pictures .it's very bore...
It is very bad product from Nokia. Even after serivice with Nokia Care problem presists with Netwrok connection
It is better for Nokia to call back this model and I think Nokia has stopped selling them
nokia x1-01 is a cheap phone but the features are great such as the boast sounds of the audio system and the powerful battery that lasts longer that you don't need to charge frequently. It is dual sim and you don't need to carry those two cellphones with you. It' built seems durable. Has nothing to say bad about the phone because in my own opinion it's worth more than what i paid.
The best phone when it comes to endurance (Both battery and phone's physical hardness). I was looking for a mid priced phone as a backup phone for a low battery life android. This phone's sound is so good that my 40K Android can't give. Amazing bass and crystal clear sound even without the requirement of a EQ nor other sound enhancement. If you're not sure about the standard I'm talking of, it's the sound comparison with an original ipod. Other than the music features, it has straight forward phone mad for calls and texting. The ONLY drawback is you can't transfer/import contacts (not even PC sync) other than from the sim card which really sucks. Other than that I LOVE this phone. Plus it's great phone for hikers and outdoor travelers apart from not having a GPS and Compass.
i Cant believe Nokia could dupe me. because i am Nokia phone freak. you shouldnt have included the memory card slot when you know that it wont work. pls dont discourage me about nokia phones
Anonymous, 08 May 2012i purchased one yesterday- will they take this stupid phone back because it has no way to tran... morethere is u just have to buy the memory card reader and transfer data into it
I purchsed this a few days back only. It had severe network coverage problem, incoming call voice clarity problem and poor quality sound problem so, I visited NOKIACARE they updated the firmware to v7.5. But with latest firmware v7.5 the problems have been reduced but not completely cured. I still face network problem but frequency has been reduced, incoming voice quality is still unclear and sound quality is still poor.
Request to take care the problems or to recall the handset.
