Sound reproduction for music can only be described as adequate for an X-branded handset, though much of this is down to the low-rent bundled headset. Still, the addition of native support for Xvid files is a definite plus. The X3 played every .AVI video I tried, as long as it was below 700MB in size and 640 x 360 in resolution.
Under the skin, the X3 Touch and Type is reasonably well specified with 802.11n Wi-Fi, 10.2Mbps HSDPA, a USB-On-The-Go facility that lets you access the content of USB flash drives and a decent 5MP camera, albeit fixed focus. The only obvious omissions are GPS and Ovi Maps. As for battery life, I managed to get three days of heavy use out of a full charge while hooked up to a 3G network and using the Wi-Fi radio regularly.

little off balance
x302 now my primary mobi tho it feels a littl off balance ...
would happily trade the xtra screen width gained in the 3x4 keyboard layout (the 4th *#0 column) for the standard 4x3 matrix even if that added to the length. also much needed is a scroll rocker on right side.
sweet ph otherwise and a well balanced review.
"""Would be excellent if this ran Meego or Android."""
I suspect with that relatively tiny battery (~850mAh) Linux just isn't a good option. I really expected to see S60 here, though as I thought S40 was semi-officially killed off.
That button you can see at lower left is the release for the battery cover. There's one on the left too.
little vibration of the phone after tap
Google is your friend
Basically it vibrates to subsitute for the tactile feedback that a keyboard would provide, but a touchscreen doesn't.
