E-mail was easy to set up though, requiring just an address and password, though there's no push email option at this level. Incidentally, call quality was passable but had just a little bit of a tinny quality. Battery life proved to be pretty respectable, delivering a good four days of medium use, which translated to around 24-hours of continuous music playback.
Overall, a fairly good range of features for an entry-level handset
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 what it needs to well enough without putting much of a hole in your wallet or searing out your pocket. ®

Eh? Re: Weak
You're comparing specs to a device costing 3 times more and saying this is not as good? Well no $hit Sherlock......
There is no such thing as Symbian S40. S40 is Nokia's own feature phone OS, nothing to do with Symbian or S60.
The nokia 5800 can be had for around £140 'brand new in box' on a famous auction website. I personally wouldn't replace mine for at least another couple of years, as it does everything either good or very good. Can't get much more functionality for £140 in my opinion.
The X6 is a repackaged 5800 with a capactive screen. But if you want to be over two times as much for that, with the same other features, feel free.
Seems a bit weak to me, small screen, low power, no memory and still £130, a brand new BB is only c. £300 and it's about 15 times better in spec terms, never mind the rest. Oh well.
can we have
an Xperia X10 review now please? :(
