Announced in August 2010, the Nokia X3 Touch and Type is an entry-level handset that packs a lot of facial appearance into a small wrap, counting a touch cover, a 5-megapixel camera, and a broad range of wireless options. It’s also moderately low-priced (nearly $170) as far as unlocked phones go. Even if, it’s not without its faults. For one, some of the X3′s air force, such as Ovi Music, aren’t available in the U.S. It can be sluggish and even if it’s not technically a smartphone, customers might be influenced to other devices like the HTC Aria, which offers more power and facial appearance for less, even if it means signing up for a contract. All that said, if you’re after an unlocked phone austerely to make calls, the Nokia X3 Touch and Type isn’t a terrible choice.
The Nokia X3 Touch and Type is one of the smallest smartphones we’ve seen in a while. At 4.2 inches tall by 1.9 inches wide by 0.4 inch thick and 2.8 ounces, it’s vaguely taller than the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini but thinner and lighter. We have to admit, in a day and age where the smartphones are getting better, the X3′s compact size is a nice change of pace. It straightforwardly fits in a pants sack without adding too much bulk, and the candy bar-style phone is comfortable to hold all through phone conversations. We also be thankful for that while being frivolous, the handset has a solid construction that doesn’t feel cheap.
Disparate some of the latest smartphones, the Nokia X3 Touch and Type is diminutive and frivolous. Read more
