There is no dedicated button for launching the camera. At the top, there is a 3.5mm audio jack and charge plug pin. The USB port placed at the top supports USB charging and USB On-the-go.

Apps can be downloaded from the Nokia Store. Nokia Maps app can be used for GPS navigation. The Social App lets you handle your Facebook, Twitter, Orkut and Flickr accounts.

The 3MP fixed-focus camera produces good photos. However, closer shots appear blur and even snapping photos in dim lighting conditions is dismal. The music player available on Asha 303 appears decent and has got good features. It supports various audio formats. The equalizer presets can be used to enhance the music listening experience. It is also equipped with FM radio with RDS. The audio output is quite impressive. You can record VGA quality videos at 15fps on the phone.

Nokia C2-03 Review

In the recent past, Nokia has launched a few dual SIM phones. Nokia C2-03 is also the new dual SIM phone. The phone weighs 115g and has its dimension are 103 x 51.4 x 17mm. With Nokia C2-03 in your pocket, you do not need an additional phone for your other number,

The exterior is made up of glossy plastic and since it is a slider phone, the Nokia C2-03 is thick. You can slide the display in the upward direction to access the keypad. The QVGA display of the phone measures 2.6inches. It has a display resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. The touchscreen type is resistive which means you will have to press harder to register the touch. The display is not that bright and you may find it difficult to use under sunlight. On the sides of the phone, you find the volume controller, display lock key, audio jack, charger port, microUSB slot and power button.

Nokia C2-03 comes with a very low internal memory of 10MB. The external microSD supports 32GB. The phone comes with a free 2GB card. The Nokia C2-03 has got Symbian S40 OS. Although you can do sort of customization on the phone, we felt that Nokia could have provided more. The homescreen can be decked up with shortcuts and widgets. The email client on the phone supports all the major email providers and you can setup your account very easily. For quick access to Facebook, Twitter and Flickr, there is a dedicated app.

Nokia C2-03 has got a basic 2 megapixel camera that is provided without a flash. It does not have autofocus feature. The images lack details and we guess that users won’t use the cam much. Videos can be recorded at 176 x 144 pixels at 15fps. The media player has a very basic layout. Sad thing about it is that it lists your music files and system tones together. You can videos of MPEG4 format at a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. You may experience choppiness while watching videos on this phone.

Nokia’s own web browser will not provide many options for web browsing. You may want to download the latest version of Opera Mini for comfortable browsing. In any browser, navigation is not smooth and it takes a little more time to load pages. The phone does not support WLAN or 3G. You can connect to the web through GPRS and EDGE. Bluetooth is the other connectivity feature on the phone. For data transfer you can use the microUSB slot to connect microUSB cable. Nokia C2-03 has got a 1020 mAh battery that gives a standby time of nearly 400 hours and talk time of nearly 5 hours.

Nokia X2 Review

Nokia X2 brings yet another affordable music phone into the market – Nokia X2. It is candybar phone that has been brought into the market to compete against phones like Sony Ericsson Zylo and other XpressMusic phones from Nokia. This budget music phone has looks like the old 5310 XpressMusic phone. Its aluminum cover makes it much sleeker and sturdy in appearance.

The Nokia X2 has a QVGA display screen that measures 2.2 inches. The display is quite bright and you will not face much issue in viewing the display outdoors. Below the display, you can find the usual soft keys and the numeric keypad. On the left side of the phone, you can find the dedicated music buttons – play, back and forward. On the right hand side, you can find the volume controller, camera launcher, and microSD slot. On the top side, you can find the microUSB slot, 3.5mm audio jack and charger port.

The phone comes with a 2GB microSD card and the external memory can detect up to 16GB of microSD. The internal memory of the phone is 48MB only. You can perform data transfer through microUSB connection and Bluetooth. The Nokia X2 runs on s40 Symbian OS. The OS may be an outdated one but it is good enough for ones who are looking for simplicity. On the homescreen, you can see widgets like time, date info, music player/radio status, etc. The horizontal shortcut bar can be personalized for adding frequently used applications.

Nokia X2 is the only 5 megapixel camera that is available at the lowest price. The dual LED allows you to snap bright photos in low lighting conditions. However, the quality is not that good. The photos taken outdoors are rich in detail and color. You will notice that once you take a snap, the phone takes around 20-25 seconds to process the photo in the background. You can record videos at 320 x 240 resolution at 15fps.

The Nokia X2 has applications like Ovi Sync, Facebook, YouTube, Opera Mini, Flickr, and messaging application for accessing emails from Yahoo!, Windows Live and Gmail. The music player of Nokia X2 is quite good. The boxed ear-buds are quite good compared to the standard ones shipped with other handsets. The sound output through the loudspeaker is loud and impressive. The Nokia X2 lacks 3G and Wi-Fi. Hence, you can only browse through EDGE. The standard Li-Ion 860 mAh battery gives a standby time of over 620 hours and talk time of over 13 hours.
