CNET

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.

Offers cute styling and decent music features, but it's let down by its poor screen and iffy call quality

from CNET

For those who can't quite stretch to the eye-wateringly high asking price of Nokia's flagship X6 music phone, the budget X3 may be the answer. It's available for free on a £10-per-month, 24-month contract. You can also pick it up for around £90 on a pay-as-you-go deal, or £120 SIM-free.

The Nokia X3 is great at music playback, but sadly, doesn’t perform as well as a phone. The sound is loud on both ends of the line, but in-call quality is mediocre. Voices sound monotonous, there are occasional hang-ups and the situation is even worse on the other end of the line, because what your callers hear is excessively sharp, unintelligible sound. Things are not any different with the loudspeakers switched on, because they are decidedly less powerful during talks as compared to the mighty punch they provide during music playback, so as a whole, we would advise you to stay away from them during calls.
