An affordable dual-SIM phone
Nokia X1-01 supports two SIM cards. It joins Nokia C1-00 and the long awaited C2-00 in Nokia’s dual-SIM phone lineup. Like the Nokia C2-00, X1-01 comes with dual-standby features, which means users can receive calls and SMS on both the active SIM and standby SIM. In addition, the secondary SIM slot is hot swappable, meaning that you can remove and insert SIM cards into the secondary SIM slot without having to switch-off the phone, a very convenient feature. A unique dual-SIM feature of the Nokia X1-01 is that it can store and remember settings for up to five SIM cards, allowing you give each phone its unique logo, music signature or ringtone.
A dual-SIM phone empowers you; you can take advantage of reduced call rates, without losing your existing line. If one network is erratic in a given location, you can switch to another network with better signal, keeping you in touch with those that matter to you. Another possibility being promoted by Nokia is the possibility of two people sharing the same phone, but each having a separate line.
An affordable music phone
The Nokia X1-01 is not just a good dual-SIM phone, but also a great music phone. It features a massive loudspeaker, which according to Nokia is loud and clear enough to serve as a makeshift home-entertainment system. Nokia also claims this is the loudest and clearest speaker it has ever produced. The device comes with and mp3 player and like all XSeries range of music phones features dedicated music keys for easy music control, three in this case. Nokia X1-01 comes with 2GB memory card included with support for up to 16GB memory card offering capacity for lots of songs. It also features music shuffle, Stereo FM, and 3.5mm AV jack.
Nokia X1-01 features a 1.8-inch colour TFT display. The display offers a resolution of 128 x 160 pixels and a colour depth of 65k. Nokia X1-01’s display shares the same spec as Nokia’s other dual-SIM phones: Nokia C2-00 and C1-00.
Missing in Nokia X1-01
Nokia X1-01 is a good dual-SIM and music phone overall, but its lack of internet support and camera might make it less attractive to some users. Its high selling points are its music and dual-SIM capability combined. Its long battery performance is also a plus. Note also that the Nokia X1-01 is a Series 30 phone, not a Series 40 phone like the C2-00.
