Nokia x2 is a good mobile. But the keypad is very flat. It is difficult to type messages.
Franklin77, 12 Dec 2011i am using this phone.........this is the best cell phone among the simple phones.i I own both x2 and cedar and i've spent a lot of time comparing both.
Here is my readings. I am reposting it again as the current situation immediately need it to be since many r lieing in favour of x2 for past many comments.
Sony ericsson cedar is better than x2 ,folks. Not only that, its the best phone in the under 5000rs segment.
I own both x2 and cedar. Here is a little comparison with x2 and cedar.
Same price phones
1. If you prefer awesome stereo sound and avg clarity with not so good as everyone complained battery - x2
If you prefer modifiable sound with good clarity and great backup - cedar.
2. Both phones perform well in microsd. Both support 16gb cards well. In cedar though, even when its filled to just 100kbs left, goes smooth as always.
X2 cant be pushed to that extent and slows down.
3. Gaming while listening to music player is available in both.
Write a new message, minimise the game only in cedar. Minimise 10+ apps and still smooth. Even minimise inbox,drafts,sent messages,write new...etc at the same time.
4. I use the following headsets in both. MH 610, Creative Hs 150, i-ball rocky, phillips in-ear.
In x2 the voice is good, clarity is avg since more treble than bass.
In cedar, good voice, good clarity with a fine level of bass and treble, besides hyper bass boost with megabass.
It can be modified and altered too.
5. X2's keypad is hard as usual nokia s40 phones. If you are a texter, fast typing is on the low.. Its posted in gsmarenareview of x2 too. Blind typing isnt possible.
In cedar normal pressure keypad as c5 and other high end nokias. great for fast typing and texting. The keypad got an elevated kind of design and blind typing is a go.
6. X2 gives good 2g edge data speeds. Cedar too got good 2g speeds and 3.5g too.
In x2 internet is de-charging battery. Cedar stays alive even with 2 days online continously. And Gives me 3.5G speeds of around 700kBps.
7.x2 plays qvga mp4 videos or lower only. Once the resolution is crossed just audio is played.
In cedar upto vga videos can be played. Low hd, nhd are a go. Awesome quality videos with over 2mBps bitrate can also be played without a hassle unlike x2.
8. Image resolution is better in x2.
But the clarity, colors, sunlight absorption are excellent in cedar.
As said more pixels or better pixels ?
The flash in x2, creates a lot of noise in the picture that its better not to talk about it.
9. SYSTEM. X2 runs s40 os and it cant be customised or modified in anyway. As its locked by nokia.
Sony runs open-system in cedar and its audio sound, quality , bass etc can be modified for out- of-box performance just by changing respective audio driver file as easy as adding files into a usb drive.
Same is applicable to camera driver, display driver, internal changes like icons, softkeys, custom menu etc...
You can even add new languages and computer style word fonts into it.
10. Java capability
X2- max java size is 2mb. It cant support any bigger .jar size than 2mb
Cedar- unlimited .jar size. Even plays 9mb files.
11. Video recording
X2, qvga at 18fps in low quality 3gp format at max bitrate of 780kbps
Cedar- qvga at 15fps in hq mp4 format with max bitrate of 1420kbps. Besides, due to open-os, upgradable to vga at 24fps via software upgrade.
Nb: if anyone is intending to call me biased or fanboy I need the reason too. And checkout the phones b4 you do. Coz each and every word here is true.
I'm not saying everyone who praised x2 is lieing. Many havent even heard of cedar, thats why they mistook x2 as best in range. Even me too when I bought x2 a year and three months ago.
i bought it 1 month,it is al so good but some time its atometacaly turn off,what ani do now?

Photoes are deleted;without informing..
Settings are set to Factory Settings...
I used many brands..
But not one like this..Very Bad.
Nokia Other models are good,thatz why I took it.
Just bought this cell phone today, and pretty pleased with it too.
I think its worth the price tag. keeping in mind that its a low price phone it offers a bit of everything. Thou WiFi could have been a great addition but still a 5MP camera that performs fairly well RAM to support decent amount of gaming and a superb sound quality in both speakers and headphones, this cellphone surely is a worth buy.
Its ideal for students who often travel in public transport and avoid carrying expensive phones, they can purchase this phone for 7 to 7.5K and enjoy the beautiful sound through express music headphones.
The battery life is very good and even the last bar of battery provides you ample standby before dieing out.
Another perk to mention here is the USB connectivity, although you wont get a cable in the box, you can still buy it easily as the connector is a mini USB one and is easily available in the market. Best of all, your X2 can charge from USB. that way you can use your cellphone as a USB data storage and charge it at the same time.
All in all, I think this phone deserves an 8 out of 10
