Nokia X2 for T-Mobile Review
Unfortunately, the Nokia X2 doesn’t fare that great in the calling quality department seeing that there is just a tremendous amount of static noise heard through its ear piece – which makes for some difficulty in comprehending our conversations. On the other hand, our callers mentioned that there is very little distortion on their end. And finally, the speakerphone of course emits some strong tones, but in the end, it causes voices to sound muffled.

Fortunately, the Nokia X2 seems to maintain a solid connection to the network in high coverage areas around the greater Philadelphia region.  Moreover, we didn’t experience any dropped calls as well in our testing.

Seriously, we were floored when we managed to attain 10.5 hours of continuous talk time on a single charge – that’s because the manufacturer has it rated for 4.5 hours of talk and 480 hours of standby time. Impressed you’d say? Indeed!


Above all, its $79.99 no-contract cost is profoundly satisfying since we’re presented with an extraordinarily good messaging device. With functionality like email, social networking, and instant messaging along for the ride, it’s easily understood why the Nokia X2 is a respectable offering for something that’s namely dirt cheap – and not to mention, it’s complemented with its clicky keyboard. However, it doesn’t quite hit the mark in certain key aspects – like its poor camera and voice calling quality. Regardless, with its decent looks, integral messaging aspects, and inexpensive cost of ownership, it should prove to be a hit with mostly teenagers.

Software version of the reviewed unit: 07.22
