Nokia C2-01 review

 

The Nokia C2-01 is a candybar mobile for those who don't want fancy features

Good battery life ; Solid build ; Good speakers ; Comfy number pad ; Facebook client

3G not HSDPA ; No Wi-Fi ; No GPS ; Small screen ; Outclassed by similarly priced Android offerings

Nokia may have made a deal with Microsoft to bring Windows Phone 7 to the fanbase, but in the meantime Nokia struggles on with Symbian in various flavours. Right at the bottom of the tree is S40, a relatively basic OS version.

Nokia C2-01

 

Nokia's latest budget phone could do with shaving a few pounds off of its price tag.

3G connectivity ; 3.5mm headphone jack

A little expensive ; Simplistic OS ; 3G is wasted on the phone

and cheaper Nokia C1-02 though, the keypad does feel slightly cramped, owing to its subtler contouring.

Nokia C2-01

 

Thanks to its entry-level handsets, Nokia still maintains the title as the world's largest mobile phone vendor. The latest addition to its budget range is the C2-01, which the company claims is its cheapest ever 3G capable device. So, can Nokia yet...

The C2-01 is a compactly styled candybar handset, and measures in at just 110 x 47 x 15. Available in Black, Warm Silver and White, this classic looking handset comes with typically traditional functionality, sporting a 2 inch 320 x 240 colour display...

Nokia C2-01 review: A little something

 

Little cash in your pocket and a good phone on your mind. Is the Nokia C2-01 it? A still camera, 3G and a memory card slot sound like we're on the right track. In contrast to the C2-00, this one omits the dual SIM handling but there are other goodies...

Entry level phone with decent features ; Quad-band GSM/EDGE connectivity ; Tri-band 3G connectivity ; 2.0" 256K-color QVGA TFT display ; 3.2MP fixed-focus camera ; QVGA@15fps video recording ; Series 40 UI, 6th edition ; Stereo FM radio with RDS ;...

Poor video recording ; No smart dialing ; Miserable display (almost no such thing as a viewing angle for this one) ; Relatively poor audio reproduction quality
