    This is actually an excellent phone. No problems except one I got now, I can’t play certain mp3 files as it doesn’t recognize the format, although on my pc it is mp3. I was wondering if it’s an error in the way the files are copied over or something else that needs to be done to fix it?

    Hi.. I just brought Nokia X2 yesterday for 4850/-. There mentioned that it is a 5 mega pixel camera. but according to me. it is not good as is mentioned, remaining features are good. but i wanna question NOKIA why they did like that in regards to camera…Samsung 2 mp camera is best than this.

    3.      Even it is not playing some Mp4 videos.
    4.      Take 4-5 hours for full charging of battery.
    5.      Headphones sound quality is very poor.

    all i can say is just simply one word

    “Satisfied”

  13. fahim khan says:

    hi guys i m using this phone and so far i m satisfied. for camera u have to hold the capture key for atleast 2 seconds to get the brilliant result. sound quality is awesome and battery life is good. the only problem is that it has got no wifi and keypad is not that much friendly.
    but i will certainly recommend this set for music lovers

  14. fahim says:

    i am using this phone and so far found it awesome in many ways. camera is excellent but not exact 5 mps as mentioned. sound quality is awesome and battery life is good.

  15. piyush says:

    ya dude its a cool phone must go for tthis

  16. Chiranjeevi Father says:

    Nokia X2 is excellent mobile phone in this range, ppl are expecting too much within 5k.

    # Camera quality is good as per standards(but not in dark). This can be understood easily that not even dedicated digicams can produce quality images in dark without proper flash. So how can a mere LED Flash can do the job. that’s why? Noise Reduction setting might help a bit.

    # Battery is absolutely OK. Official talk time(13.5 hrs) isn’t feasible but 6-8 hrs talk time with enough multimedia usage is “awesome”.

    # Sound quality is excellent as it has dual stereo speakers. This is extensively tested on gsmarena.com, so be sure about this.

    # Build Quality is fresh & sturdy though color combination is quite not adorable.

    Go for this fone if you have budget upto 5k & keep updating phone software(i.e firmware) by Nokia Software updater3

  20. waleed_vashi says:

    This is a nice phone… Except the battery sucks too soon just because the display is too too bright and we cannot reduce it otherwise the camera is good it is not clear on the phone as the display is too small and if u put it on pc it is damn clear just like a 5mp picture and the phone is light weight sleak …. the audio in and out is excellent just like express music model… there is a short cut for flash light in case of any light emergency …which is really helpful sometimes ….. in short ,value for money….chao
