Nokia X1-01 review: Dual-SIM 101

12 August 2011
The Nokia X1-01 hides two SIM cards underneath its cheerfully colored shell, both active at the same time. And with a price lower than what some contracts cost per month, the X1-01 takes over where the C1-00 left off. There are several key...

- No, this phone doesn't restart.

- Yes, signals sometimes die for a few seconds, only experienced this twice.

- No, its not unstable, its very stable and reliable apart from the signal issue, its been rock solid.

- The .mp3 player is very basic but it does the job.

If you have problems, I'd blame your network provider first. I'm also in Australia, so if you want a cheap no nonsense dual-sim phone, this is a very good option. This is now my main phone. Solid and durable.

hey guyez, i have used this phone for 8 months. I have faced advantages & disadvantages.
Advantages :
1. Its stylish ,slim & handy.
2.its reliable & cost effective.
Dis-advantages :
1. U can face frequent network prob.
2. If u are used to texting a lot,u'll face prob like, sms wont come to ur mobile,bt u can send sms. Its disgustng because u can't even notice sms aren't coming to ur phn.
In fine,nokia X1 is very good,nokia sholud concentrate on its probs. :)

so far i only see those x1-01 made in india, the battery (bl-5j) is made in china though, charger is from india and headset from vietnam... quite a mix of country of manufacture in one package...

had it for a few months, so far did experience the no signal syndrome once in a few hours... battery couldn't hold as what Nokia claims, i got greeted by a low battery warning even before a month when i left the phone aside after a full charge...
the voice volume is a bit soft though, at times can barely hear what the other party is saying during a call...

only bonus is the build in speaker is pretty loud and clear, ringtones can be really loud, depending on the file (bitrate an type of sound/music)... music playback sound quality is surprisingly good, just plug in a good earphone/headphone/speaker system to hear, no equalizer is a down side but not necessary...

so far am quite happy with the phone, dropped it a few times (i work in a rough environment), it still works... it serves me well as a secondary phone and mp3 player/fm radio... on average, a full charge can survive me 4 days on heavy usage...

its basically a simple basic phone for those who just wants a phone with extras (mp3,torch,dual sim)...
