Nokia X3:- Music Phone with Slider

Nokia X3-00 :Music Express Phone with Slider

Product type: Mobile handset
Model: Nokia X3
Market price:- 6400 ( I had brought for this amount but price may vary according to place and time)

Nokia’s music express series in earlier models were one of its popular and accepted phone especially by most of the youth. In the recent time their music express phone especially nokia 5130 had got lots of technical error varying from the date of purchase of fifteen days. Though we expect a phone to work efficiently till atleast one year of purchase, nokia failed to stand up in its expectation. Their one year warranties didn’t either was of any help because a small reason was enough for non-functioning of the phone.

Still, because of the non-availability of new + good + comparative cheaper Sony Ericson phone and my repelling interest towards Samsung phone, I decided to buy Nokia phone as their software function also are user friendly.

Nokia X3-00 was available on 6400.00 in the end of July. It is a 2G phone (not 3G phone)
Their function at the glance were,
1) Music express phone with slide
2) 3.2 mega pixel camera (flash not available)
3) Dedicated button key for music player, volume and camera
4) large display

Accessories available with Nokia X3-00

1)    1) 2 GB memory card free

2)      3.5 mm Headphone (this one is of new type ear-phone which nokia has been providing with its new model. This headphone is better than of their earlier model which looks stable and well-covered too. And thanks that they assembled 3.5 mm Headphone jack which can be connected with computer headphones too)

3) Data cable – but it is again not longer than 1foot. Don’t know why nokia is being so greedy in all these.

        4)      Charger adaptor and PC suite Cd

It has been more than three months since I am using this phone, and following are my experience regarding their functions and application.

1)      Firstly, the most important thing, Phone calling. Phone calling through this phone is better than of nokia’s earlier model. Its voice clarity is good and good network connectivity.

2)      As usual, nokia comes with larger phone book storage power and field option of multiple phone number entries, email and so on. Its flexible option to back up contacts in memory card or pc can be of great help if well-used. This can help you prevention of loss of phone numbers if phone error is found

3)      Battery power is improved than as of other phone but if you are frequent user, its battery power will not company you till the end of second day. So, daily charging is necessity with this phone.

4)      As it has a camera of 3.2 mp, you will love its image. Its clarity are better than of any other brands’ 3.2 mp phone. This gives you function of zooming and cropping of picture in different size as of your need. So cropping through phone itself outcomes better picture than of computer cropping.

5)      The phone memory of this phone is about 64 MB which can be used in storing more number of applications. (but yeah, if you are interested in installing 100s of application, this is not a correct phone for you). Another limitation of using Nokia application is that this phone doesn’t support minimizing application or multiple use of application at a time. So this can be a concern why this function is lacking even in this phone.

6)      Application of E-mail which they have pre-installed in this phone comes with the option of signing in through various email ids. Viewing of personal message of any of your account is a type as of ok! You can compose mail also with the file attachments and using recently used email address too.

But you will experience a big problem in email viewing. Don’t assume it to be as any other E-series or black berry phone.
Here, instead of the given link, you will see the entire html code and web link in any email which is a bit-irritating. Opera mini is better option to this

Inserting/storing of email id through direct phone book is possible, but only to that contact whose rank is upto 100 in phone book order. Suppose if you need adding email contact of person starting from M and in dictionary order, if it its rank is 103, inserting email id of this contact is not possible.

7)      It has the option of hindi language for phone setting as of earlier nokia phone and typing messages in hindi is also possible

8)      It comes with few installed games but also to be noted that its keypad are bit sensitive one and it may not last long.

9)      Message inbox- it can be viewed both in inbox or conversation (Chat) view. As usual, nokia gives you the option to save unlimited number of messages but again, speed of phone functioning is inversely proportional to number of message saved. So if you happen to cross 4000+ sms, your phone may suffer with repetitive hanging and slow functioning.

10)   Advanced web-browser- Here, nokia is trying to give you advance web browser, as through its own browser u can open bigger site. But it has its own limitation. Because this one being 2G phone, internet connection through browser is too slow and if you are using internet with small data plan, you will end up losing money as this one is not so reliable. You can use opera-mini for efficient use.

11)   You-tube video- Through one of its you-tube bookmarks, you can see videos easily on this phone. So, this is good that video playing is smooth with this phone.

12)   With dedicated music keys, you will have an option to play music smoothly and they have separate keys for volume too. Its sound even if played through phone itself are good and of normal sound level which wont irritate you as other Chinese phone. But remember, if you have kept your phone unlocked, your music can be played with just a touch in sensitive time too. It has very good voice clarity

13)   It has wireless fm radio, through which you won’t need headphone to play fm. Fm

14)   I have 2 GB memory card, but if you are a music lover, you can replace with 8 GB memory card. Till that level, I am sure it won’t have any functioning problem till that extent as it extended memory is of 16 GB..

15)   Internet connectivity through PC suite with this mobile is slower than as of other phone.

16)   As I earlier said, its keypad is a bit sensitive and it may not be same after one or one and half year of usage. As it is slide phone, chance of phone slide being loose sooner can’t be ignored.

17)   Small ignorance or few fall of phone even from low height can effect this phone. So, with all these, we can find lacking of product durability…

This is a better phone than as of Nokia’s earlier product, but today on the price of 6.4k or with adding 1k, you can owe a good phone in 3G connectivity. Nokia’s negligence effort in improving application and Email function can be seen in this phone also.
If you are seeking phone just for normal and camera use, you may like it, but this may not be a first choice for rest of people…

So as all my rating of 3 star out of 5.

Be free to comment, and if anyone using this phone, please do share your experience.

  4. While using use of Voice over World wide web Protocol, VoIP for short continuing to grow, the headset is becoming a additional typical fixture in both homes and offices. Other services that provide the capability to make telephone calls by applying a high-speed net connection counts on the user owning an earpiece and a microphone connected to their pc to use as a traditional telephone receiver.
