The actual camera takes pictures in two promises (640x480 pixels and 320x240 pixels). That's minimal even for any VGA shooter, and you don't get lots of editing options, either. You'll find merely a self-timer, a 4x digital zoom, 3 color effects, and three white-balance choices. Despite the few offerings, however, picture quality is decent. No, it can't match up against even the worst megapixel camera, but it will get the job done for quick shots.
The camera additionally records video, which we weren't anticipating. You can choose from two promises (320x240 pixels and 176x144 pixels) and also the same set of editing options you will find for the still camera. Clips shot for multimedia messages are limited by 6 seconds, but you can report longer in standard mode. The X2 offers about 46MB of internal memory with regard to storing files. If you need much more space, the external memory slot supports cards as much as 8GB.
We also were surprised to determine the music player on X2. The interface is beyond basic--and don't expect miracles in the X2's sole speaker--but you can arrange music into playlists and activate shuffle as well as repeat modes. What's more, the X2 offers stereo widening, a flight mode, as well as an equalizer. The handset also comes with an FM radio, though you'll need to make use of the included wired headset as a good antenna.
When we first heard concerning the X2 we welcomed the HTML internet browser. But now that we've had the chance to play with it, we are not so thrilled. The thing is that if you are going to put a full browser in the phone, you need to build a phone to aid it. And while the X2 is really a solid device that's well-suited for messaging, it isn't built for browsing. Not only may be the screen resolution too low, as mentioned previously, but the navigation is way too clunky with no touch screen. What's more, Web pages load way too slowly over an EDGE network.
The X2 provides the standard set of options for designing the screen. You can also have more choices and additional ringtones from T-Mobile. The handset also includes demo versions of seven games: Block'd, Rebound Tales, Diamond Rush, Where's Waldo within Hollywood?, Guitar Hero, Monopoly Here & Right now, and Sudoku.
