Video niceties

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.
