If I had to pick holes it would be the absence of an external camera button, what you can see on the right of the handset below the volume rocker is a lock key. Also, it lacks an accelerometer or indeed any facility to flip the screen into landscape when not playing video. Ovi Store apps like eBuddy can also be a challenge to set up using the touchscreen without a stylus.
Brings candybar die-hards into the next decade
Adding a touchscreen to S40 could have ended up as an unholy dog's dinner but it hasn't. Rather, Nokia has delivered a system of control that makes other candybar mobile phones feel rather dated. ®
Nokia X3 Touch and Type
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.
