Nokia X3 Review
The Nokia X3 is great at music playback, but sadly, doesn’t perform as well as a phone. The sound is loud on both ends of the line, but in-call quality is mediocre. Voices sound monotonous, there are occasional hang-ups and the situation is even worse on the other end of the line, because what your callers hear is excessively sharp, unintelligible sound. Things are not any different with the loudspeakers switched on, because they are decidedly less powerful during talks as compared to the mighty punch they provide during music playback, so as a whole, we would advise you to stay away from them during calls.

The battery is really robust and should be able to provide up to 7.5hrs of continuous talk time, allow for 24 hours of uninterrupted audio playback and keep your device operational for 380 hours in stand-by. With 30 to 40 minutes of talks, about as much time surfing the Web and about 2 hours of listening to music, all of this on daily basis, the battery of our X3 got flat at the end of the third day. All told, the X3 is a capable handset in terms of audio playback, but fails to offer anything on top of what the other music-oriented Nokia handsets in the same device class deliver. In certain respects, like display and camera quality, it is actually worse than the latter and that´s why we don´t consider it a better solution. You will surely be much happier with the 5130 XpressMusic that is one of the best music-oriented cell phones with an affordable price tag as of today. The asymmetric 5220 XpressMusic and the likeable Sony Ericsson W395 are also great, low-priced music devices as well.

Cheap feel??? Yes! because it is low priced !!!!!!!!! No company produces the luxury phone with the low price... I think u should change the rate system. u should rate and compare the price. Why PhoneArena have bias with Nokia so much?
