Nokia X3-02 Review
In a nutshell: The Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type is a new style
of phone with both a touchscreen and an alphanumeric keypad. Although
it's a resistive touchscreen and quite small (for a touchscreen), it's
certainly a lot better than not having one, and we think that it's a
real asset. The X3-02 is incredibly lightweight and thin too, and will
slide into the smallest pocket with ease. Yet it manages to pack in
a fully featured music player and radio, lightning fast internet access
and Wi-Fi. The camera's average and we'd have liked more memory, and
watch out for the old Nokia problems of freezing.
Review: February 2011. Last updated Sep 2012.
What is it about Nokia? They release a terrible slide phone, the Nokia
X3, then they come out with a completely different phone and call
it the X3-02, hoping nobody will notice. Confusing or what? But at least
they keep on trying, and the X3-02 is actually a lot better than the
X3. It's not an update you understand, it's a completely different model.
Maybe Nokia's environmental folk think they have to recycle names as
well as raw materials.
Anyway, the X3-02 is a new breed of phone called Touch and Type. It's
got a keypad and a touchscreen, you see. Sony Ericsson have been here
already with the Aino and that ended in tears, but at least Nokia have
priced the X3-02 sensibly. The key feature of the X3-02 is the screen/keypad
combination, so let's talk about that first. We've never been a fan
of alphanumeric keypads. Ever. But plenty of people seem happy with
them, and it's obvious that pairing the keypad with a touchscreen has
got to be a good idea. The screen's quite small, and being resistive
it isn't the most responsive touchscreen ever, but it's better than
not having one. In fact, we think it's a great idea.
Featurewise, the X3-02 is again an oddity. It has a lot of some things
and not enough of others. In brief, it's greatest assets are its incredible
thinness and lightweightedness; its brilliant array of connectivity
including high speed 3G HSDPA and Wi-Fi, its music player and radio
and its general funkiness and wide choice of colours. On the bad side,
the camera has full focus instead of autofocus, and no flash either,
no GPS and not a lot of memory.
On balance, it's a nice phone, and we're totally sold on the Touch
and Type concept. Give it a try, you might like it. Just make it clear
that it's the X3-02 you want. On no circumstances get the X3 by mistake.
And beware, because many users are reporting the old Nokia problems
of freezing, crashing, blank screens and general breaking that is all
Features of the Nokia X3-02 include:
- 5 megapixel camera with full focus and 4x digital zoom

This phone was given to me by someone when I lost my phone. First of
all, it has no screen and each time I want to make a call, I have to
remove the battery and put it back in before I can make the call. When
I read all the reviews, they are similar to the problems I inherited
with this phone. Now I know why it was given to me. This phone costs
$25,000.00 in my country which is a lot of money to me. And to think
that I was going to purchase a screen for $5,000.00! It is a good thing
I did my research.

Dreadful phone- avoid!
First one lasted about a week before problems started- main one was
an annoying flashing message telling me to unplug a usb cable, even
though I had no usb cable attached. Returned to 3 and got another X302
Been trying to live with the problems for the last 6 months but it keeps
1) Touch screen often freezes- have to switch off and back on again
2) When I get a message often tells me the message storage memory is
not ready when I try to access inbox- have to switch off and on, and
when I turn back on the new message has disappeared, and takes up to
a day to show up.
3) Friends complain they can't hear me properly- sounds like there is
a lot of shuffling in background even though I'm completely still- never
had these complaints with any other phone
4) The charger keeps popping out of its socket
5) The green call button never works
6) The 3, 6 and 9 keys on the keypad either don't work or require a
lot of force to make them work.
7) Screen sometimes goes blank
Like others who have reviewed this phone, I have had Nokias before that
have been totally reliable and will last for years if looked after.
The X302 is unreliable, totally frustrating and at times completely
useless. Compared with smart phones it is pretty basic, so I don't understand
why Nokia have managed to get it so wrong. I will not buy a Nokia again.

The Nokia X3-02 is a complete waste of time. I bought it in June 2011
and it was fine at first. Now 9 months later I have had nothing but
trouble with it. It constantly freezes. I have to swithch it off and
on again. Sometimes I have to remove the battery to unfreeze it. The
freezing isn't a rare occurance, this can be several times a day. Many
times I've been on the internet and the phones just gone blank and turned
itself off. I have contacted Nokia 3 times in as many months for help.
I now have a problem where the word 'waiting' is displayed across the
screen of the phone. I contacted Nokia and they couldn't help. They
suggested I returned it to them to analyse it-at my expense of course.
I am waiting to update to a new non-Nokia model.
I would say overall - The Nokia X3-02 is GREAT - if you want a new phone
for just a few weeks!!! Be warned!

Under no circumstances should you purchase the Nokia X3-02 it is by

they are too numerous to mention. I am 14 months into a 24 month contract
with 3 and had to resort to using a 5 year old Samsung. I am totally

On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate the X3-02 a -10.

Phone replaced a Nokia 6220c-i over a year ago. I really like the touch
screen, it complements the menu system well and seems a natural update
to the 6220c. The main thing I don't like is the absence of Nokia Maps
(I went out and brought an HTC Desire)! The touch screen can at times
not be responsive, but it is a lot better than the Samsung Monte, but
is no where near as good as the HTC Desire. The great thing about this
phone is its size and weight, although I do wish it was a slide and
so could be smaller still, this means it fits in pockets very easily,
unlike the Desire.

Got this phone last December, have to admit as I was stepping up from
an LG Cookie it seemed amazing, with the 3G, WiFi, HSPDA and the like.
It worked well for the first few months with only minor niggles here
and there, as you'd expect from any phone, but by October it had totally
packed up. It wouldn't turn on, no matter how much I charged it, and
when I swapped my uncle's battery (from his X3-02) with mine it still
didn't work, even though his did. So now I'm back with the LG, in the
same position as I was a year ago. If you're looking at getting this
phone make sure to check out others on the market, as there's many similar
priced phones that do the same job.

The Nokia X3-02 is generally a good buy. I have had this phone for nearly
5 months, but it does have its limitations. The phone is stylish and
very lighweight,however,it is also very slippy and easy to drop. The
photo memery is not very good and it does have a bad habit of crashing
a lot. I frequently have to either turn it off and on again, or wait
patiently for the phone to reset itself. This can be very annoying and
frustrating. The benefits however can sometimes out way the negatives.
The video imaging and camera are quite good, however there is no flash
for the camera and the screen is quite small. The internet is quick
and the Nokia X3-02 has Opera Mini built in as standard. Overall. I
would rate it as 3 Stars.

I would not touch an X3 - 02 with a bargepole. Mine spends more time
at the repair shop than it does in my pocket. The screen goes blank
so the phone is unusable regularly. I have had 3, maybe 4 speakers replaced
on the phone. I have had two brand new phones as replacements and the
same thing has happened to each of them. Orange do not wish to know
and the Carphone Warehouse Repair Team know me and my family by name

I got this phone with the hope of using it to browse the internet at
WiFi hotspots. I get on well with the texting side of it, sound quality
is excellent, battery life is decent (I'm getting about 4 days with
regular use), it's slim and light and well put together and the camera
is fine. This is a phone after all; if you want a better camera, buy
a DSLR. Now the bad bits: The web browser is annoying and I can't get
it to do anything without the screen going into zoom. It's so irritiating
that I can't be bothered with that feature any more. I found the navigation
of the screen reasonable, but I find myself having to burrow down 5
layers to find things like my music, which is weak. Also, when you get
there, there are 2 directories for music. It tells me that I have 1.8Gb
free, but won't let me copy more than 110Mb any directory on the card.
The screen isn't that good on touch sensitivity either, so sometimes
a feather light touch will do, other times you have to press quite hard.I
have had a few screen freezes in the 10 months I have had the phone,
so nothing too serious there.

I bought this phone about 1 month ago and its been the biggest nightmare

nokia and the only thing they did was an upgrade! Did it fix it? NO!
Do not buy this phone, do ur research on the net there are huge problems
and nokia will not help anyone with them. $180 for a phone isn't much
some would say but when its about a useless as a brick i would say $1
is too much. Please save yourself the headache and cash there is better

X3-o2 suits me because I can't get on with iphones/blackberry as I seem
to hit several "keys" at once and they're just too big to carry. Saw
a remark that you can only delete messages one by one but you can do

with my router, as a phone it's good but a bit easy to press the mute
button against your ear on the touchscreen. Not had a problem with the
hardware, except camera exposure could be a bit quicker, blur and such,
quality is good when you get a static shot. I love the small size, my
reason for going for this phone, it's very light and thin indeed and
you get used to the keyboard quickly. One thing I wish is that it ran
android. The nokia markets rubbish for this phone (games and useful

I've had this phone for a couple of days and am now starting to get
my head around it. If you are expecting an Apple experience of "it just
works" you might be disappointed! Don't get me wrong it is a good basic
Smartphone but I haven't found it to be the most user friendly. I've
had problems with the Wifi (and judging by the support forums I'm not
the only one) but I've discovered that its down to my router (seems
there are compatability problems with some Nokias and Netgear routers).
I also had a problem syncing between the phone and my ovi.com account.
This was solved by setting up an account by using the phone directly
to set up the account rather than doing it online first. I personally
like the touch and type interface and don't have a problem with a keypad.
I like the phone for my needs. I can sync online to my calender, email
etc. If you are looking for a basic Smartphone then this will be fine
but you might have to work at it a little.

smartphones. All in all im liking it a lot. If you dont want a full
on smartphone its a great choice.

The touch screen is a disaster - not a patch on my i-phone. Definitely
would not recommend this phone, it's way below par on the responsiveness
of the screen.

Had this phone for about 4 months or so now. Really like it as its smart,
well built and light with a good battery life. Texting takes a while
to get used to as keys for space and editing words are on the right
hand side instead of bottom. Once you get your head around it its brilliant
to use. Combined with the touch screen its a revelation and is very
user friendly. The screen is decent in terns of quality and responsiveness
considering its not capacitive. Has loads of features for the price.
The series 40 operating system suits this device perfectly and loads
up web pages etc pretty fast. Only quibbles I have is that the wifi
is a bit stubborn, seems to work sometimes and others not. Also the
top left corner of the edge of the screen has a slight dent as the screen
isn't totally flush to the body. Don't think it'll be long before the
screen has problems due to this. If its a budget phone your after this
is hard to beat.

I've been using this phone for 2 weeks now, since I have had to send
my HTC Desire away for repair. Its a very nice phone, very light and
slim. It has excellent sound quality and battery life goes for at least
2 days. Areas where it lacks is in its web browser capabilities. The
web browser is functional but not as easy to use as a proper smartphone.
Web sites with video, often you can not play the video, but youtube
works very well. The email functions has built in settings for gmail,
hotmail, ovi mail, yahoo mail so its easy to set up.

It's a nice phone with a powerful music player. Touch is amazing, wonder
if the screen was bigger. Everything is great about this phone, except
for the S40 OS, which is very old. One bad thing about it is, the search
on contact is not good. It doesn't search names which have two words,
only first word is searched.

should buy an alternative device;-) X3-02 is the best.

I dropped my old phone in the mop bucket at work and bought this phone
to replace it after looking at the ratings on this website. My old phone
was the Nokia 6303i classic and although I didn't like it initially,it
really grew on me and I wanted a similar phone with a better camera.
I'm easily pleased, old school.. not interested in app's or using the
phone for the internet, I just want a reliable phone that I can make
and receive calls on, send and receive texts and take photo's when I'm
out and about. This phone fits the bill perfectly and still flashes
when I've received a text or phone call (which is what I really loved
about my old phone!) In my opinion, it's a nice looking, modern phone
for those of us who just want the simple things in life. It lost a star
with me because you have to delete messages one at a time, there's no
multi-delete option (or not that I've found yet).
