So I request people not to blindly trust what some sony ericsson "fanboys" say here...please search the web for some reviews and then make a choice...happy shopping...
GKSR, 29 Apr 2011Hi Wreck
Really want to appreciate your knowledge .. i Have a defined set of requirements w... moreTo everyone who is confused over x2 or anyother phone.
I have in hand experience with these 3 phones and own x2 for 8 months and cedar for 4 months.i dont own c2-01 and have limited experienced as my friend owns it.
1.camera and video -
c2-01 and x2 got a small sensor and big scaling (5mp,3.2mp).so both these interpolate the image to meet the given megapixel resulting in clarity loss and huge picture. Cedar got a good quality sensor and avg scaling (2mp only), so the pic resolution is low but u'l get wat u want in good clarity especially in (whitebalance) daylight setting..
No flash means daylight photography and very limited night photography only.
Video recording, all got qvga 320*240 recording, cedar is at 30fps both other have lower framerate.also max bitrate recorded in cedar is 1480kbps, x2 is 880kbps and c2-01 is much lower,.
2.x2 got stunning vol through speaker and c2-01 is above average, but both got below avg quality at highest and near high volumes. Cedar got above avg quality but terribly lacks volume, ring volume is ok low volume while playing music and video.
Through headset cedar is the loudest and clearest with very good bass effect.
3. 'x2 is not a texters phone' - gsmarena review.
C2-01 and x2 got stiff keys making it difficult to type. Cedar got sort of step keys and not that stiff, its easy to type. Message sending is possible to unlimited number of reciepients (via mark and send). only 15 numbers are allowed in a Group.
Both nokias run s40 ver.6 and lacks multitasking, whereas its there in cedar.
X2's battery if stands for a 1.5 days and its one miracle. It got very poor battery backup. C2-01 got avg backup and cedar is real stunner here.
More than 12 hours of 2g internet along with 1.5hours video, some music, messaging and few calls and the phone stands for the very least 2.5days.
Most disadvantageous of the three phones.
X2- battery, 3g.
C2-01- lacks clarity in all fields, music,display,photo,video,terrible display view.
Cedar- feeble loudspeaker.
What ever phone you buy among these 3, updating the software is good.

I need to replace my old phone. I am not very interested in internet, touchscreen, etc. I want a phone with a great camera(5mp, autofocus with flash if possible), good battery, no hanging problems, nice keypad. can you suggest a good phone for me? I prefer Nokia, but I'm open to other brands.
Update the X2 mobile software to Version 8.17. Previously it was 4.90 and they have done some many changes like performance. Its really awesome.

I'm a big fan of nokia and I want to buy me the Nokia C3-01 but I'm afraid it will give the same problem.
i got this just a week ago.Absolutely having no problems atall.I am just using a 1gb memory card.I wanted a simple phone and this is pretty much it.Only irritating this is u cant mark ur messages.
And there is only 1 alarm.my previous W705 had 5 alarms.anyone can suggest me some multiple alarm free applications for x2
I bought this handset three weeks.I really regret having bought this.Its really BAD in terms of menu options esp msging.I owned 5130 before I bought this one. It was really very nice in terms of mark all, delete msgs and lot other cut and paste options. This one is HOPELESS!
This phone is far below my expectations. Shame on Nokia for advertising false information. On paper it seems very good, but in practice… I have it for 5 months now and it’s impossible to achieve more than 7 days in standby, far below advertised, since I rarely speak on the phone.
The camera produces low quality images and can’t focus close objects, making it useless for qrcode reading. I was forced to buy a macro lens for that purpose.
The music player is competent, but sound quality could be better. The standard connector is a plus though.
The phone is very fragile too. I was force to buy protective screen cover and a silicon cover for the phone.
But some features are good: the Bluetooth works really well and there are a lot of sync options, including SyncML (for web calendar synchronization). The e-mail application also is very easy to setup e the Ovi stuff works really well. The s40 interface only showed glitches one time in this 5 months. I’ll consider buying other phone only if I can find something with better battery life and the same features.
The bottom line is: too expensive for the features, especially the low battery life
wreck, 17 Apr 2011No.
Neither of them.
I'm just being neutral.
