At first glance the Nokia X2 does not look special at all. Why should it? Remember it targets the budget users. The Nokia X2 has got a sleek smooth design, not too flashy but subtle enough to complement the user's style and likes. The Nokia X2 comes in an assortment of colors ranging from red on black, to blue on silver. The Nokia X2 comes cased in plastic that frankly looks as cheap as it gets.
Looking at the visible features by starting from the front, there is a TFT color display that is capable of 256K colors. This display comes in a size of 2.2 inches and a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. Above the TFT display there is the ear piece for listening in on phone calls.
Right below the TFT display, the Nokia X2 comes with a softkey panel that houses the five-way scroll keys also known on Nokia phones as the D-pad. This D-pad is surrounded on either side by the two softkeys. Below the left soft key there is the call answer button and below the right soft key there is the call end button. That is pretty much all there is on the softkey panel.
Below the softkey panel there is the numeric pad laid out in the standard 3 by 4 pattern grid. Turning to the right side of the Nokia X2 you will find the volume up and volume down buttons. These buttons appear right above the microSD card slot. Below the microSD card slot there is the hardware button for taking snap shots on the camera.
Moving on to the left side of the phone, you find the multimedia button controls that give you access to play, pause, fast forward and rewind music on the Nokia X2. The top end of the phone has the power button as well as the 3.5mm audio jack.
The back of the Nokia X2 comes fitted with the battery compartment, that also houses the SIM card slot. There is also a 5MP camera fitted above the battery compartment and an LED flash above the camera. The space below the battery compartment cover is fitted with stereo hands free speakers. The bottom of the Nokia X2 has a socket for charging the phone.
The Nokia X2 comes measuring in at 111 x 47 x 13.3 mm and weight a mere 81 gms. All in all, this phone has pretty decent design features.
