David, 28 Dec 2009It's gonna retail unlocked for 130 Euros where i live. What the hell to people want? It's supp... moreWell put, David! A lot of people are not interested in smartphones/PDAs, and only care for a PHONE with the occasional music on-the-go.
i don't mind a cheap low-level phone as long as it supports 3G.
but since this phone does not support 3G, i won't buy it.
btw, it's a shame that nokia deided not to add multi-tasking to this new S40...
i have only two words for it.......
very good nokiajustbring some more advance handset.
x3 voice clarity is not good.camera is not too much good as compare with 311o classic
I really don't understand why multitasking for series 40 is always a big issue for GSMArena review team. Nokia will never offer real multitasking capability for series 40 due to the fact that it's no making any sense at all as the company also already has S60 and Maemo platforms which are remarkably optimized for multitasking. Series 40 is all about essential features for a true mass market segment. Moreover, Nokia is now making S60-based devices available at significantly lower price point than it used to be at years ago (100-150 EUR). Do you guys at GSMArena really expect all device software platforms from Nokia to deliver true multitasking capability? This simply doesn't making any senses and is not going to occur because Nokia needs to differentiate them to cover all comsumers' preferences which greatly differs from one to another.
well, lets hope with the new reprograming of Symbian, the hold back of the S40 and the develompent of Maemo 6, phones like this can have a more polished OS and increase their sales, otherwise Nokia will lose a large chunk of their share
although the rename of the Xpressmusic series is a nice touch
Graham, 28 Dec 2009If you're broke you can't exactly afford 130 euros....I see you have issues with the understandings of society. Young and broke means that you don't have your own money, it means being your parents (under-priveleged and middle-class) gets you a phone in 150 Euro class, unlocked or pre-paid.
Please don't use my comments just to get your dose of everyday wannabe smart-ass on the internet self-esteem boost just to get by. Take yout pettines somewhere else. Here we discuss phones, not the wannabe internet smart-ass of the year.
"Video recording from the dark ages" hohohohohohoho....hehehehehe.....GSMArena I must say, thats humour.....
It's gonna retail unlocked for 130 Euros where i live. What the hell to people want? It's supposed to be a music player that makes phones calls. Have you seen the excellent Audio quality on this as well as the built in Radio, camera etc.
Go ask Apple, Blackberry, LG, Samsung etc to go and make 130 Euro phone and they will give a bit of plastic with a dial on it. Without Nokia the under priveleged people would have to by crappy phones that does nothing for 250 Euros from other brands.
Me myself am i Blackberry Bold user and it's the best phone i ahev ever used, but i can still give credit to Noka for not overpricing their products in this category and still manage to give you almost everything that a 700 dollar Iphone has, and even producing excellent audio, radio and decent camera, call features.
Thank you Nokia for making decent phones available to the underpriveleged and broke young people in world.
i think it won't sold as many as 5800 did even though it is cheaper than 5800
Another cheap made and cheap looking toy phone from Nokia...
For the same price i just bought a Samsung Star, sooooo much better and classy, and no bug at all. Nokia is only number one because it sells many cheap phones in India and China. Bye Nokia, no more number one in two years, want to bet ?
Nokia is getting worse with its mid range mobiles,the X3 seems another mistake by Nokia,the screen is made small because of the stupid buttons around it,but people want larger screen for images an videos,the camera is like the 5800 below par an the speakers very weak,Nokia are really losing ground nowdays, an the Best way to Boost your sales you over better quality features on mobiles but they are letting it fanatics down,hope Nokia read this review to really Know the X3 is a waste of time an money from there China produces
crap phone and why copy se's naming structure? nokia is boring these days...getting rid of my 5800 ad to be honest n97 is nothing special then they release crap like x6 and this.....
n95 is the last decent phone nokia made that was ahead of the competition:-(
GSMarena please correct its 262k colours display not 16M as mentioned
