Nokia X3 Touch and Type Review and Latest Deals

Category : Mobile Phones, Nokia

largenokiax3touchblackThe Nokia X3 Touch and Type is an unusual handset offering a combination of touch screen display AND standard alphanumeric keypad ( the only other phone we can think of offering this combo is the BlackBerry Torch 9800) The actual screen size on the X3 Touch and Type is a modest 2.4 inches, it’s a TFT resistive type screen with QVGA resolution and supporting up to 256,000 colours. The resistive screen allows use of stylus and helps keep dimensions down to a snug 106mm x 48mm x 9.6mm and a light weight of only 78g. The X3 is noticeably slimmer than many competitors. As with most Nokia’s, navigation is simple and intuitive and the touch interface works well.

Connectivity is a major advantage with this mobile. A quad band GSM handset, with 3G and both HSDPA and HSUPA enabled, along with GPRS (Class 10) and EDGE. The handset is also WiFi enabled and features Bluetooth 2.1, with A2DP support. Connecting to PC or laptop is easy with supplied Micro USB port. Full support is offered for messaging services like GTalk, Yahoo messenger, Windows Live; and for popular social networks like Twitter and Facebook.

The internal memory of the X3 Touch and Type is a meagre 50MB, however additional memory storage via Micro SD memory card can support up to 16GB (according to Nokia, however users have reported using memory cards of up to32Gb with no problems). This memory is especially useful for the on-board media player which supports all popular digital audio and video formats. A 16Gb memory card can hold thousands of songs along with video’s and photographs, and if you ever get bored of your music there is always the built in stereo FM radio with RDS support.
The Nokia X3 has a decent 5.0 megapixel camera (resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels) which can also record video with and supports for high speed data transfer. Nokia claim 408 hours stand by time for both 2G and 3G with standard battery which is exceptional for a touch screen phone.

Advantages: Exceptional battery life, stylish looks, superb connectivity and very user friendly, quality feel despite wide use of plastic in construction
Disadvantages: No qwerty keypad, Symbain OS some way behind class leaders, camera at 5 megapixels is pretty basic for this class

The Nokia X3 is an unusual phone with touchscreen and alphanumeric keypads with a good range of connectivity features and easy to use S40 software. Lacks the bells and whistles of competitors like Blackberry but this is reflected in price. Currently being offered as a free handset with contract by T-mobile and Vodafone. Another winner from Nokia!
