Moreover, do check once,you can't send sms more than 160 characters. If you try,then it would come with a message failed notification.
it switch off and on itself.no voice recorder.some times it only one sim network (both sim inserted in phone).
I bought this phone last Aug.7 for php2400 w/ 4gb memory card..It's a good phone it lasts for 4 days with heavy use..i play music almost all the time and its speaker quality is better than my 5250. It has a clear sound reproduction you can still hear the music even though you cover the speaker with your finger. this is a worth-buying phone!but what i have noticed is that it has a wobbly back cover..
I second the request for the audio quality test, since this phone will be a perfect mp3 player with its huge battery.
Please add the audio quality test.. To check if it can work as an alternative to a normal music player..

You'll also get playlists, a 5MP camera and Java apps.

Is it... more"Is is possible to have separate ringtones for each SIM, also to message arrival sounds?"
Yes. use the sim manager.
To your 2nd question, no, the phone can only have one active profile at a time. BUT you can set assign a sim card to "Vibrate only" for calls and sms, effectively making it on silent mode.
Is is possible to have separate ringtones for each SIM, also to message arrival sounds?
Is it possible to have one SIM on a "general" profile, and at the same time a "silent" profile in the other?

I bought the X1 this month. Looks great is style & sound, but i am facing frequent network issue & frequent restarts.
Network Issue:I am using Vodafone & Airtel SIM cards, during sometime only one SIM(Example Vodafone) will have the network coverage.If I remove the two SIMs & use it in my old Videocon mobile, both the SIMs have full network coverage.
Frequent Restart:The mobile phone will automatically restart while accessing the phone book, hearing music and while playing the Snake game.
I reported the network issue to the mobile phone store, they said this may be due to Network service provider issue.
I called Airtel & Vodafone service providers & got the reply there is no network tower issue in my area.
I loved this Review, i have one x101 as a secondary option of my smartphone, because sometimes u just need a phone to carry on with your both sims, easy and safe not carrying a expensive smarpthone around not so safe areas.
i though about buying one as a music player (replaceable battery and good scores in other nokia audio tests) but:
1- it only supports MP3 and no other format (i use he-aac)
2-there's no way to adjust the volume while at the homescreen
3-GSMARENA: Where's the audio test??? that's what makes your reviews better than others... (because 1 and 2 i don't care, but still...)
this one sells alot in our store..
and c2-00 and c2-03..we are always out of stock with this phone...and other nokia dual sims..
Hi GSMarena, your writings are awesome...how did you get the ideas?...cool
Reciprocator, 13 Aug 2011The damage has been done. You need to apologize and shoot a video of yourself on YouTube so yo... morei dont think so, a forgiveness from a wise people dont need a spectacular n complicated ways but a true n honest word that been said maybe enough 2 make it clear. Gsmarena team has a lot of smart intelegent n wise people with them, n im sure they'll understand. Im just saying about dt n bg,im wrong in involving a person name,thats my mistake,n im regret it. Thanks n adios
I bought this X1-01 when it was first released here in Manila last June 17. I bought it for PhP 1900.
All I can say is that this phone is awesome! A great budget phone and gets its job done! No questions asked.
The dual-sim functionality works great and I've never had issues with sending/receiving sms and incoming and outgoing calls. The voice clarity is magnificent as well as the loudspeaker!
I have my Sun and Globe numbers housed on my X1-01. Perfect for unlimited texting and calling!
I'm using this X1-01 as my secondary phone. I use a Nokia X6 16Gb (which I'm thinking of replacing with either HTC or SonyEricsson). My X1-01 uses an 8Gb microsd with 192kbps mp3 songs and it doesn't lag and crash! My Shure SE530 earphones work great with the X1-01. Very good audio quality (even without equalizer). Same goes with the FM radio.
As for the battery's performance, it lasts for 5 days. To think that on average, I usually take/make calls lasting to more or less an hour a day, about an hour of listening to mp3 (sometimes I use my X6) and about 20 minutes of... flashlight! Yeah, because I go home late and so I have to walk 2 kilometers every night so I use my flashlight in dim areas.
Overall, the X1-01 will save Nokia's ass. It's a budget phone and it's a winner! Good job!
