Nokia X2 review

The Nokia X2 is a good, cheap entry-level phone, but does it offer enough to satisfy?

Nokia X2 review: Internet

The Nokia X2 is not designed to be an internet behemoth, but it does offer some basic functionality, and supports Adobe Flash Lite 3.0 and Java MIDP 2.1.

The phone lacks both Wi-Fi and 3G data connections, so if you intend on using the X2 for regular browsing of the web, you should be prepared for some serious waiting times.

Loading up the TechRadar site was painfully slow, and when it did finally load, the text was so small it was unreadable.

Apart from occasional checking of addresses and local phone numbers through the built-in Bing search engine, we don't see the X2 as being a usable portable browsing platform.

One area you may find yourself using is the Ovi Store. Through this store you can download a multitude of apps for your phone with relative ease. Navigating to the store is done through the standard menu.

On our first launch of the app, we were asked to download a 1.3MB update to the software. To give you an idea of just how slow GPRS can be, the file took a phenomenally long 3 minutes 35 seconds to download.

Overall, using the internet on the X2 is not a good experience, especially when you consider that for an extra £10 to £20 you can get the Orange San Francisco, which comes with 3G, and Wi-Fi, as well as full Android OS. If regular internet use is your thing, maybe avoid the X2.
