The Nokia X3 is a decent budget phone for anyone looking to save money on an unlocked GSM device, but it serves no other purpose. Buy it...

I cant help but feel that the Nokia X3 feels a little out of place. In spite of being a good phone for listening to music, the X3 doesnt seem to have much else going for it. Especially, if you consider that at the X3s price of Rs....

A good and inexpensive phone for listening to music, the Nokia X3's lack of a touchscreen means it falls behind similarly priced rivals. Concerns about the screen aside there's nothing wrong with the X3, and if you prefer a slider phone with...

The Nokia X3 is a good music phone but apart from that it doesn't do anything particularly great. Priced at Rs. 6,500, it's a bit expensive as well. Samsung offers a lot more value for money handsets that provide more features and better...

The new Nokia X3 is a slider which comes with all typical Nokia style elements. It’s quite plump when looked at its front panel is a 2.2-inch screen. At the left side of the screen it has 3 thin music keys which have been placed vertically coming...

hese days it’s quite refreshing to have a phone you can switch on and ‘boot up’ in a matter of seconds, as against a minute or two on many smartphones. However, such simplicity comes at a price - although in this case that isn’t...

The Nokia X3 is not a world-beating phone. It's not the future and it won't stun anyone with its feature set, especially the average camera and lack of 3G browsing speeds. What it is though is a solid, music-based workhorse of a phone that does...

Music on a budget is the order of the day with the Nokia X3, and while much of what is on offer here matches the relatively low price of the handset, suspect call quality and poor viewing angles on the screen make us think we might steer clear. Nokia...

The Nokia X3 is a slim, budget offering from the Finns. With no touchscreen and modest memory, it still has pretensions of being an attractive music device with a low cost to boot.While the recent Nokia X6 touchscreen topped the rebranded X-series...

If you like the idea of the Nokia X6 but think that prices of £449 SIM free for the 32GB Comes With Music Edition and £299 SIM free for the 16GB version are on the steep side, then you might want to give the £129 SIM free X3 a second...

The X3 is Nokia’s latest music phone, but while the name will give many the impression that this is a cut down version of Nokia’s capacitance screen touting , in reality the two phones are completely different beasts. Whereas the X6 is...

We like the Nokia X3's music features, but its lacklustre display and poor call quality mean we think Sony Ericsson's W395 Walkman is a better choice for those after a budget music phone...

on the Nokia X3 If you just want to play a few tunes while you’re out and about, and budget is an issue, you could do worse than the Nokia X3. But we are put off by the lack of 3G and Ovi Store’s obvious drawbacks. It’s no iPod...

The Nokia X3 isn't the perfect phone; but it's not a basic handset trying to be a cheap smartphone and that's why we like it. Yes, it's a bit basic but it fits into its own skin unlike its older brother, the X6. So rather than getting...

We have to admit the Nokia X3 is a tough sell, and that has almost nothing to do with the competition. In fact, there are only few top manufacturers that take music phones as seriously as Nokia. So, whether its XpressMusic or X3 (we like that one...
