Nokia X3 Philippines: A Music Phone and So Much More

Coming in with dedicated music keys on the front-side panel of the screen, the Nokia X3 is equipped with relatively spacious keypad that slides down from the main body. Though the overall body design of it is rather boxy, the slide-down keypad makes it look sleeker and more reformed. Dedicated to make it easier and more comfortable for music lovers to fully handle the phone, Nokia installed a standard 3.5mm headphone jack at the top of the phone. The Nokia X3 boasts a small display of 2.2-inch, 320x240 pixel resolution screen. Though it’s sometimes slightly hard to focus of the display, it won’t be much of a hassle when you consider the application of the standard 40 media player, which allows you a straight-forward navigation through playlists, artists, albums, and genres and also a direct control of tweaking the audio output via five band equalizer and a stereo widening setting which increases the width of stereo image through headphones.

Bring Music into Everything You Do with the Nokia X3!

One of the prominent features of the Nokia X3 is the Ovi app store, where you can purchase and download games, themes, and ringtones to your heart’s content. Though only coming in with 45MB on built-in memory, the purchase of a Nokia X3 comes along with a 2GB memory card that you can upgrade to 16GB. You’ll get a basic 3.2-magepixel camera with only works best if there is an abundance of light in the capture area.

You’re also getting basic connectivity features with no support for 3G or Wi-Fi—so you’d have to depend on EDGE connection wherever possible. However, looking a brighter side of things, you’ll get up to 3 days and a half of battery life with it. The Nokia X3 comes equipped with other basic features like FM tuner, calendar, calculator, a contact phonebook, and gallery.

Should You Own It?

If you are an avid fan of classic Nokia phones and if you are on a very strict budget for a decent basic smartphone, then the Nokia X3 could be a commendable choice. Comes equipped with a decent line-up a features that could allow you to basically communicate with others, the Nokia X3 is decent phone to own at the very least.

The Nokia X3, like its X3-02 "Touch and Type" sibling ($145, 2.5 stars), is a tough sell. It's a decent phone as far as unlocked feature phones go, with good voice quality and a manageable slider form factor. But Nokia's utter failure to land subsidize...
