"Boring" can be a word that accurately describes the X2, but that is not a bad thing. Indeed, not every cell phone needs a striking design, especially those which can be built with communication in mind. Having its boxy shape and slightly curved bottom part, the X2 looks a bit just like the Samsung BlackJack series, albeit with an alternative navigation array. At 4. 7 ins long by 2. 35 inches extensive by 0. 56 inch deep, the X2 is relatively slim and compact for the class. It slips easily into a pocket plus it won't weigh you down (3. seventy nine ounces).
As for durability, the particular X2 shows Nokia's usual design chops. The handset features a solid, comfortable feel in the hand as well as the keyboard is quite good given the particular X2's price. The domed keys offer you an ergonomic typing experience, and the arrangement needs to be spacious enough for most users. Quantities do share space with letters about some keys, while other letter switches double up with common punctuation. You can also find a dedicated Symbol and Links and a large and convenient space bar.
The particular navigation array is huge. In the guts is a raised four-way toggle using a recessed OK button. The toggle is user friendly, and you can set the toggle being a shortcut to four user-defined features. Around the toggle are two soft tips, shortcuts to the Web browser and also messaging app, and the Talk and also End/Power keys. Though this last pair of controls also is large, they feel slick plus a tad cheap. We don't anticipate long-term concerns, but you do notice a differ from the keyboard.
The QVGA display actions 2. 4 inches and supports 262, 000 shades (320x240 pixels). Though that is not a bad resolution for a messaging cell phone, it doesn't do justice to the Internet browser or graphics. You can start to see the pix elation and most colors look comparatively flat. Also, keep in mind that it is not a touch screen. After using so many smart phones we all instinctively tried pecking at the display initially we picked up the X2. Thankfully, the Series 40 menus have a straightforward design, and you can access some applications directly from your home screen.
On the top with the nokia X2 are a 3. 5-millimeter headset jack as well as the charger port. We were hoping to get a standard Micro USB charger, but Nokia used its longtime 2mm connection around the X2. On the left side certainly are a Micro USB port for syncing and any micro SD card slot. You won't view a volume rocker, which means you'll must change the sound level using the navigation toggle if you are on a call. The camera lens sits around the rear side next to a tiny speaker.
