Nokia C2-01 Review13
In call quality with the Nokia C2-01 is passable, but there is a slight background static on both ends of the line. Volume levels are adequate (adjustable using the dpad due to the lack of volume rocker). In addition, the caller noticed distortion with sudden volume changes such as laughter.
As far as UI performance goes, there isn't noticeable slowdown when using the handset unless, for example loading complex websites. The Nokia C2-01 has its battery rated at 8.75 hours of talk-time and and about 17 days of stand-by, which is about average performance.
To wrap up, there are very few surprises with this handset, though it comes in a bit expensive considering what it offers. Nevertheless, what it does offer is a robust candybar phone with a few good connectivity features and a good music offering. So, if that's what you're looking for, it will fit the bill.
Practically speaking, if you're looking for a better connected device, we'd recommend the Nokia X3-02 which comes with both Wi-Fi and a touch screen to facilitate web browsing. If money saving is your priority, the Sony Ericsson Cedar comes in at a lower price point and provides a similar offering with a green heart.
