02 X1 review

Share

** Latest news – O2 has announced the sucessor to the X1, and it is a much better handset. Click here for more details

O2’s excellent revamp of the XDA might be its high profile launch for this month, but it has another phone that has just gone on sale.

The big story with the X1 camera phone is that it is free, which in our book makes it great value.

Firstly it is pretty small for a camera phone coming in at around the same size as phones like the LG 7100. The effect is slightly spoilt by the protruding aerial, although, possibly because of this voice quality is spot on.

Screen quality with 65k colours is reasoanble and the images it takes via a camera with a rotating screen are pretty good quality. Other features include Calendar and Organiser (it can synchronise with microsoft Outlook), Java, T9 predictive text, Call vibrate, Clock and Alarm and changeable Wallpapers.

Its big weakness though is that it is a pain to use. The menu is tricky to negotiate and on our sample the buttons were sticky and unresponsive.

Still, as it costs nothing there’s hardly room to complain.

  • hi,
    it`s been nice to know that o2 x1 is the best fone i`ve ever had but i`m having a problem here. some one stole my phone, plz is there any way i can destroy it? cuz i know i can`t get it back plz you have to help me cuz it`s urgent.the phone has its serial number353232002380329. i will be xpecting ur reply as soon as possible thanx.

  • Ive had the x1 for a year and a half now. It worked great the first year but recently ive had all sorts of problems that i never had before – freezing, switching itself off, pictures I receive being blank (this only started recently, it worked fine before). I still have the receipt for it, my mum had to pay £200 for it coz i didnt want a sim card. It was worth the price to start with but now its a complete rip off!

  • i got dis 4ne in feb wit no manual pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
    someone know where i can download one

  • christ i hate this god dam phone i suppose its good in some ways- quality is verry good nd the camera is superb but then u realise how it only stores 10 txts!!every minute my inbox is full nd then u have 2 go through deletin txts u dont want constantly!Also its so slow wen u answer an incoming call and the signal is so crap u cant have a proper convo without movin around tryin 2 get some signal!not wantin to go on but it freezes so much so i have 2 take the battery out nd restart it over and over agen,last thing-the battery lasts 4 just over a day and suprisingly it takes about 15-20mins 2 recharge it agen but then the battery goes down so quick!i really wouldnt recommend gettin this fone coz i woz so disappointed wen i got it ! c ya x x x

  • Aaggghhhhh! My 02X1 sucks, mega big time. Its ok if you like your buttons to stick and your screen to freeze and to occassionally turn off….. One thing that I have noticed is the SMS and MMS. With the MMS I can send pics, but if someone sends me a pic its blank!?! has anyone found away around that yet? The other thing is has anyone found out how to switch SMS to storing 250 instead of the usual 10? Im way beind the times my fone never started playing up till I had it 5 months but couldt find the receipt. ive now had it a year (im surprised its lasted this long) and i found the reciept but dont think they would do anything now??

  • The 02 X1 fone is the crappest fone ever!!! I wish i’d never got it. Its stopped freezing on me but instead keeps crashing!! Mainly after it gets charged so then i’ve got to take the battery off to get picture back. AAARRRGGGHHH

    also is there a data cabble for the o2x1? im getting an upgrade and donw wanna lose my pictures!

    advise please! wind_wistler@hotmail.com

  • Ok i have read through some of your reviews and personally i haven’t had any major problems with my o2 x1 fone, ok yes at the start it did turn itself on and off, but all that it needed was the sim card taken out and the connections cleaned. as for the gprs, mms etc i have no problems working them as they work perfect.

    but could someone out there who is a kind hearted tell me how on earth you get to store more than 20 messages. i read through this some are getting to store 250 i have read my manual through and through and still have no idea how to get it. please someone tell me and email it to me at aphrodites2@lycos.co.uk PLEASE!!!

    THANKS!

  • I used to work in a well known national phone store and we usually had 2 x1’s back in for repair each day. There is a major design fault with the phone hence the reason it crashes/looses sound/cant use gprs/cant send or recieve sms and mms. It is a cheep alternative to other quality phones such as nokia or samsung. It is substandard and should have never been releaced. This phone IS THE WORST PHONE IN THE WORLD DONT BUY ONE.

  • I got mine as a late cristmas present as a replacement for my sagem. the sagem was good but not nearly as good as the x1. i love this phone (so do all my mates!) and I’ll have it for a long time. Ringtones sound great and they are easily dowloaded through the WAP services provided on the phone. Good photo quality with a rotating lens. You can also download wallpapers and games. If you are looking for a new phone this is a good one to consider!

  • Hi anyone know where I can buy a data cable from for the 02 x1 mobile phone? Please email me.
    thanks

  • How do you get my o2x1 to store 250 text messages. I’ve read a couple of messages telling that it says in the handbook how to swap over from sim to phone but it only tells you how do that with the phonebook. As far as I can see it holds 250 numbers both on phone and sim, but nothing about text messages. Also does anyone know the pin2 number, I tried to clear my calltime on my phone and it says to enter pin2, I tried entering my pin1 number and now it says to enter puk2. o2 says they do not know the code which I think is pathetic when it’s their own phone. My phone is not blocked with anything else just the pin2. I can still use it, jus cannot clear my calltime.

  • the sound has gone and it says manner mode is activated and a small pink bow has come up on top of the screen how do i deactivate it because since its been on there ive had no sound help!

  • This phone is the WORST phone I have EVER HAD! I will never, ever have another non-Nokia phone. It’s a pile of rubbish.

  • Bought 2 of these phones, both have had the same fault, keep switching off on their own ?? sent them back with full refund …will never buy 02 phones again

  • i think this phone is cool, i just had it today, im looking for a datalink cable thou, i cant seem 2 find 1?

  • I bought the fone about a month ago and it has worked fine up to know. This morning i went to turn it on and it wouldnt. I charged the battery to full and still nothing. O2 has said i have to send it in for repair, but i doubt they will fix it and i wil probably just get a replacement fone and lose all my pics and ringtones!!!!!!!

  • i’v had loadsa trouble wid this fone aswell.i’v tried fonin the 02 customer care line and wen i eventually got thru they say theres nothin they can do.even the guy in the 02 shop didnt know how to help.coz they dont give a shit thats why!

  • this mob is the crappest phone i av eva got.it keeps on freezing when i go on the internet, the soynds keep on going off. My light keeps on either freezin when it is lit up or just doesent cum on at all.this manner mode keeps on going on and off. iv sent it back twice and they hace replaced the whole phone but lost all of my pictures and tones. ADVICE dont get anova one change it!!

  • The 02 x1 is the most annoying phone ive ever had!i got it last christmas and it was the first non-nokia phone i owned. It froze all the time, wouldnt send or recieve piccie msgs (even tho the shop said it wud cos they had ‘fixed’ it.) It looks really cute but as an actual camera phone to use its rubbish!ive gone back to nokia and now have a 7250i.The camera is much better, txtin is easier, it doesnt switch itself off and it ill actually send and recieve (and open!) picture msgs.

  • ive had this phone since xmas..and i think its sweet…i just had to get a new one cuz i left it on a feild and it got munched by a a big lawn mower…’no joke’…its sweet aprt frm the video’s play back reallt fast like its speeded up, it sometimes turns it self off and the buttons refuse to work for some action such as trying to get ur fone book up. its good cuz its got free gprs!

  • I really dislike this phone!!

    I’ve just got it repaired by O2, they replaced the whole thing (and lost my 80 pictures that were on the old phone! grrr!) because it kept freezing and turning itself off.

    GOOD POINTS:
    -camera, good quality, can store up to 100 pics
    -screen colour’s very good
    -like the flashing lights on the front!
    BAD POINTS:
    -[and this is the one that annoys me NO END]- when you get a text, you click ‘read’ and you have to read the message BEFORE you know who it’s from! When you’ve got lots of people texting you at once, it’s VERY annoying. An extremely poor aspect of the phone. The inbox is such a let down, on Nokias you see your contacts’ name and THEN read the message. But not with the O2X1! Plus messages saved in the inbox are sorted chronologically but not by name, by the first few words of the message. Sorry to go on but I REALLY hate having to guess who text’ me!
    -No profiles. You can have the phone on loud or on vibrate. No silent, no ‘discreet’, nothing. Unless you want to go through the VERY HARD TO NAVIGATE menu and sort all the settings out every time you’re in a quite room.
    -media messages/downloads/wallpapers etc, NONE of them work on my phone. Grrr.

    Personally, I wouldn’t recommend this mobile. I’m sticking with my Nokia 3410 until I can upgrade my O2X1!

  • hi just got a o2 x1 at the weekend and the keypad is all frozen up…
    power key switches it on but then…. nothing, i can’t switch it off or press anything but the screen is still moving saying “enter pin 1”
    any1 else had this??
    please mail me at mrpotato1@hotmail.com
    thx in advance rich

  • I have had my o2 x1 since December and basically been pleased with it, until about 4 weeks ago when it started to freeze and wouldn,t switch off the only way to get it to work was to reset it by taking the battery out and replacing it back. Got onto o2 and they told me i had to take it to a o2 shop, which i did and they sent it away which took 2 weeks to get it verified that it was faulty. They did replace it with another handset. On getting it home i charged it up, and hey the same problems were still the same. So i rang up o2 again and they admitted that the phone has problems and all they can do is replace the handset with another one, but this does not solve the problem. so i,am now getting a full refund from them, as i got in touch with trading standards and told them my legal rights as it is causing me significant inconvenience. So anyone else having a problem with there,s and not getting any satisfactory results then get in touch with o2 directly (Sales dept) and quote them your legal rights and demand a full refund. NICE PHONE, but STAY CLEAR OF!!!!!

  • STOP!!!!!!!!! WHAT are all these bad reviews for? Do you know how many problems i’ve had with the 02 X1? NONE! My dad bought me this fone and as soon as I got it home I dreaded opening the box as I’d read all there bad reviews but I got it set up, turned the phone on and the first thing i noticed was the exeptionally surprising colour screen. All my previous fones didn’t have a screen as good as the X1’s. Then I listened to the tones and they were incredibly crisp and clear (even though some, I do admit, get quite annoying). Then I checked out the camera, I thought i had the problem with the camera quality deteriorating (sp?) but i realised i had just accidently messed around with the lighting and colour settings. I soon sorted that out. Apart from that I had absolutely no problems so it so I don’t know what all these bad reviews are about. I recommend this phone any day.

    Ps: I don’t work for 02, I’m in year 10! I’m not even 16 yet!

  • can anyone twll me how i can access hotmail and e-messenger.net on the o2 x1 as i cant get it to work

  • I have just bought X1 and i cant acces my hotmail on wap or e-messenger on wap , can anyone tell me how i can set this up on my o2 wap phone.

    I think this phone is cool and it does so much and better with colour screen.

    If anyone can help please email me at christopher_delaney@hotmail.com

  • I bought the X1 for my daughter for Xmas. Before New years eve the phone was switching its self off, freezing, internal screen not working sometimes and some times external screen not working.Took the phone back for repair, 5 weeks later they told me that it couldnt be fixed and gave me a new one.One day later all of the above problems were happening with the new phone.Took the new phone back for repair 2 weeks later the phone was returned repaired 2 hours later same day same problems.Sent it away again still not repaired. Five months of ownership and its been away for repair for 2months in all. O2 tell me all they can do is keep repairing it untill the warranty runs out I then presumably throw the phone away.I have managed to get a full refund but it did take several very long phone calls at 50 p per minute. All I can say is beware of this phone.

  • i myself work for an o2 retail outlet. and im telling you now, avoid the phone at all costs, the company we hired to make them has nearly gone bankrupt due to nearly 75% of their ENTIRE stock (not just of phones) have been returned. so yeh, we’ve had every single one returned, an so have the other 3 shops in the sheffield district, so yeh, just warning you all.
    good night and god bless

  • hey i got the O2 X1 yesterday and i think it is really cool. but one problem i have tried to get downloadin sum games and sruffa nd i dunno how to do it can ne1 help me?? i wanna do it as quick as poosible dont want to wasdt credit. help please

  • CRACKED IT ! …the reason why 02 X1’s switch off on their own is a faulty sim card, a dirty sim card can also be the problem, replace the sim or clean your sim with a dry cloth. Also this could be the problem when sending MMS , I am now able to send MMS very easily now without lock-ups. Regarding the amount of text messages depends on if you PAYG or contract, contract phones get more allocation.I agree about the review regarding answering takes more that one press of the green button, but thats just a very small teething fault.

  • can anybody tell me here what kind of displaysize the x1 uses for wallpapers or screensavers?

    thank you angelotti

  • I recently purchased an 02×1 and i honestly did think it was the best phone in the world, i only had it two weeks then whilst i was on the wap the stupid thing froze the only way i could switch phone off was by taking the battery off then when i tried to switch it back on it wouldnt work, ive now sent it back to the catalogue and ordered the nokia 3100 the only thing pissing me off is all my phone numbers were saved to the phone not the sim so ive lost everything.Anyone wanting to buy this phone DONT its ok the first few weeks then disappointment kicks in. not to mention you cant download anything for it what a waste of money

  • how can i store more than 10 msgs in my inbox it fills up far to quickly and when are they making the data cable available please help PPL cheers

    Ian

  • I hear that the games dont have sound does that mean that you cant download games that are meant to have sound.

    Also does the screen outside ligh up in different colours when the phone rings.

    How many chords are the polyphonic ringtones.

    Is there a ringtone composer and can you compose polyphonic ringtones.

    Are there any websites to download java games for the 02×1.

    The 02 x1 isnt listed for most java downloads but it is java enabled so can u just download any java games.

    If you get an unlocked version and use virgin then can u still go to 02 wap sites.

    The cameras meant to be good but how many photos can you store.

    What is the layout of the menus.

    Can you do stuff with the photos like add frames.

  • Hi guys I realy need your help and quick.
    I have to make a disicion 01×1 or samsung e700 before monday and I have some questions.

    Is the video playback good.
    How many pictures can you stor on the phone. and how much video footage. (is the memory for pictures diffrent to the overall memory)
    When you go on the 02 wap site what games can you download can you download games like rayman 3 xiii and splinter cell.
    Finally, would you recoment the phone.

    Thanks and happy easter!!!

  • ooohhhh doom and gloom half the probs with peeps and the x1 is its a bit complicated not to say that some x1s dont have a prob but reading through the reveiws i would say 80% are down to incorect set up of the phone u need to set up the phone on the net to send mms and yes mine does thanks to 02 as i took the phone to the shop when i got it and they set it up for me free i download my ring tones from http://www.tagtag.com get the codes from there sight for ring tones then go to tag tag sight onto download ringtones put code in and hey presto works try it some time as for the data cable yes as to date im trying to get one but to no avail but i got a feeling when the x2 is released got a feeling the cable will appear and i hear this will be soon and no if u was wondering i dont work for 02 nor do i have any conection with them i have just done loads of leg and finger work to get info on phone im not just a buy a phone and presume its going to be set up as i want it from word go ((((whats a phone manual why do i need it ))))))

  • folks be warned! this mobile is dodgy, read all the other unhappy reviews, it’s all true. I’ve had mine just over a month, I can’t download any polyphonic ringtones, it cuts all the inbuilt ones out if you try, it doesn’t send mms and there is no data cable for it, so you can’t even download any pics you’ve taken onto your pc. If you find any problems and its out of its 14days guarantee and over a month from the date you purchased it, they will only repair it and will charge you £20 to borrow a phone until you get yours back, you won’t be able to get your money refunded.

  • heya, all. some of you say it says in the manual how to change from 10 messages in ur inbox, to 250? ive looked and looked and cant see anything?
    can somebody help me please, because ive had to delete important emails which i shud really keep.
    if u cud let me know, if anyone has any clue how to change it. thanks

  • Igot the 02 x1 about four days ago im still getting to know the little bugger i found it very hard to suss out wether its OK or the green button on most menu items. I also find myself staring at the screen for an inordinate amount of time to see if it has sent the picture or not ,is it usual to take so long to send and can you close the lid while you wait?

  • do the sides of the phone light up?please tell me as i would like to know.just write in your msg if it does please sarah x

  • it seems to me that a lot of problems in the messages are just down to the persons using the x1. i found u need to fiddle around with it for a day or two untill u understand it i have one and my daughter to. as todate we both have had no problems with them they are a bit complicated this adds to the confusion i stuck with it and came good in the end and love the phone now.but may i add it did come near to bin a couple of times so i surgest if u have problems peeps let your dad look at it or someone who has had one a while and it could be the end of your problems but i must also add that some things in messages i have not come across yet so they may be manufacturing faults or may not be .

  • hiya could any1 tell me (who has one of these fones) do the sides where the black part is,light up?

  • i got this fone a while back but a boy was messing around with it today and now the sound has gone and it says manner mode is activated and a small pink bow tie thing has cum up on top of the screen how do i deactivate it because since its been on there ive had no signel help!

  • I’ve had this phone since Christmas now and it seems to be going fine except for it freezing on wap a few times. But I’d just like to know – is the battery only supposed to last about 3-4 days after a full charging (which is what is happening to me) and what exactly is the “My Melody” function in the Alert Tune Menu as there is nothing in it and nothing explained about it in the manual. Please Help !!!

  • Hi i shud b gettin my fone on monday or tuesday but im kinda worried bout it as evry1 keeps writing bad reports on it!!!! it has taken bare tym 2 come seein as i ordered ova a month ago but is it 1 of the new batch???? if it is will it work propaly and hav no defects???? thx kim xXxXxXx

  • Is the new batch really good cause im getting mine soon and i really wont it but ill might change it because of all the complants

  • is it really that bad coz im getting it 4 my birthday in april and it looks well cool but is it really a load of bollocks??

  • da phone keps frezng on me and turng it self of cn u tke da fone bk 2 da shop and get a nw 1 did i her laz

  • well i have the 02 x1 and its well good but i just dont know why it wont let me go on the internet and how to get polyphonic ring tones downlauded onto my mob.

  • yer ryan i cant find that in the manual either, looked right through it i just have the sim card they gave me, i hope to god my camera part doesnt come off thas the only good thing about the phone!!

  • im now onto my second x1. ive just came of the phone to the o2 shop where i bought it from to see about getting it exchanged for the second time……………i was advised not to bother and to change it for something else. if o2 have lost confidence…….

  • Can someone help me, how do u save more than 10 sms in ur inbox?? I got the fone just after xmas n the bloomin camera part has cum off completley, has anyone had a replacement fone with 0 problems???

  • hmm ryan i think your gonna have to dispense with your knowledge cos i can’t find the proceedure anywhere in the manual 🙁

  • By the way the X1 can hold 250 messages. its your sim card that can only hold 10 thats why in the manual it tells u how to swap so ur phone holds messages…….it can also hold ur phonebook

  • I got this phone the other day and it was great. The bad thing was I tried to take a photo and it asked me for a password which should have been 1234 however this didnt work. I took it back and they said loads of people av come back with the same problem and they dont how to fix it….does any1 no the password…02 dont

  • okay i got this phone few months ago and it may have some good stuff on it but you can only have 10 sms messagers and they said you can have 250, my games just disapeared on my phone and now i cant download no more it says not compatible with your handset and it freezes all the time
    i dont recommend it if you want a reliable phone but if you want good quality pictures it is good for that !!

  • If anyone else has the problem that you can only store 10 sms can you put 123 at the end of your messages? If anyone knows how to store more (ive heard rumours that theres a way to store 250 or something), can u let me/us know!!
    apart from that the phones been good, only frozen a couple of times, when the lid has been closed during gameplay. Havent had any of the problems mentioned above and my phone phone was from the supposedly faulty batch!

  • From day one this phone has been so dissapointing!The phone is constantly freezing the mms is dirt, theres no accessories, no message reports, cant hide caller id, cant get java games or wallpaper, da textin is so slow to react and the battery is dirt. O2 should be paying me to use this phone!! The only good thing about is the camera.I can download ringtones you get them off http://www.ringtonenation.com/wap/index.php on the wap all you have to do is go to the bottom to the search part on the main page them when you get into the next page enter your favourite song or whatever.You can only save 8 ringtones on the phone pretty crap since the gx10 can save loads.Overall view the worst phone ive ever bought but lets give O2 some credit for a good camera!so if you want a camera phone get the shoddy O2 X1.

  • Ive ordered this phone from the catalogue its taken about a month 2 even get in stock and after reading all these i think im making a big mistake!
    It cant be that bad can it?
    All i want 2 be able 2 do is take piccys of hot boys and save them!
    Possibly email them thru as my msn display piccy!!
    Yeah! Luv 2 yas all xxxx

  • I’m getting this fone tomorrow!!Is it really like this bad?Could someone please post an answer for me asap pls pls pls.

  • HEY!GOT 02 X1 THIS WEEK ON 02 CONTRACT, THINK MINE WAS BRAND NEW BATCH. I HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS TO DATE WITH IT, ITS WICKED. I USED TO HAVE THE NOKIA 7650…TRUST ME IT WAS A BRICK IN MY POCKET, SO IRECKDON THIS FONE IS THE DADDY…PURELY BECAUSE OF THE FEATURES YOU GET AND THE SIZE.

  • X1,Where shall i start… Working for a major High Street Retailer, I have to say the X1 has to be the most unreliable phone to date.. Sold 100s of christmas majority were back for refunds now repairs… Needs some serious updates most problems seem to be linked with Software issues and sending/receiving message.. Safe to say I would never recommend to any customer, so please avoid recommend Siemens MC60, SAMSUNG V200, MOT V525..

  • Hi , i have had the 02 x1 for about a month now and i would advise people out ther not to , this phone is ok but

    Alot of these phones must be faulty!

  • hey everyone, my sisters b/f dropped his o2 X1 down the toilet!!, we tried taking it bk to o2 and they said it cudnt be fixed but we think that it might just be a dead battery because when the battery gets wet it automatically short circuits and there was no real way for the water to get into the other components so we are trying to get a new battery for it and test see if it works, we dont hold much hope but can anyone tell me how much it is for a new battery and if so where can I get one??, e-mail wilkoy2k@hotmail.com if u know, thanks!

    sam x

  • I got this phone for Christmas and compared to my cousin’s gx10i. i have to say that the 02 x1 was lots better. The picture quality is amazing, with this phone in your pocket you could definitely leave your camera at home. Pholyphonics are also excellent and 02 provide excellent service for downloading more too!!!! Buy this, your missing out

  • People stay away from this phone! Practically everything is wrong with it! They aint not in shops because of xmas demand! they aint in shops because o2 called them all back because there were so many faults! The o2 assistant in the shop even admitted that and tols me to get a different on!
    And so I did! I got the Samsung v200!! Its amazing and totally trouble free!! it can do everything the x1 can and loads more!!!
    o2 x1=:-(
    Samsung v200=:-D

  • well youve all freaked me out now! i was looking foward to getting this phone off mygf as its coming late because of demand over xmas, does anyone know if there will be anyway to stop the double speed playback problem? and if its not too much trouble could someone elaborate on the mneu problems? cheers

  • O2 suck at making reliable phones!! I recieved my phone today (xmas day) and as soon as I turned it on it all went down hill from there! First the number keypad locked so couldnt type in any numbers then the navigation key and the rest of the keys stopped working minutes after turning the phone on for the first time! I now have to wait days before I can swap it for one that works or get my money back!! They were also really bad at delivering the phone on time, and it came three days after the day they said it would come!

  • I did want this phone but now i read all the comments i am changing my mind. I want to know will the shop swap the phone if i have a problem with it…

  • hi ya i got my o2 x1 yesterday i find it easy to use, u have two games on it bear one where u have to chatch food and jump over this thing not to die, and also a mini golf one i have finally understand how the scoring works something about pars. i found a way today how to put it on quite mode withotu going thou the settings to turn the ringing volumes off if u just hold down the * (star) key it said manner mode on in others words quite mode on and all it does when some1 rings or texts u is vibrate and just hold down the star again to put it back on to loud version, the fone is easy to use. the camera easy to use, i have taken lots of pictures with it. at first i keep pressing the wrong button cause i was so used to my GD67 fone what is totally differnt to text with conpared with this fone.

  • ANY1 WHO HAS BEEN SOLD THIS PHONE SINCE IT CAME OUT HAS GOT THE BATCH WITH THE FAULT! NEW BATCH COMES OUT NXT WEEK!

  • PEOPLE NEW BATCH OF O2 X1’s ENTER SHOPS THE WEEK AFTA XMAS AND IM GLAD TO SAY THAT THIS BATCH OUR FAULT FREE!!! WAHEY!!
    THE 1ST BATCH WAS CALLED BACK CUS OF THE AMOUNT OF COMPLAINTS!

  • I have had this phone for about 3 days now and am debating whether to take it back to the shop. The Menus are slow to respond, very slow at typing text messages, and receiving MMS is easy but reading them is not. I sent myself a few pictures for wallpaper and there are no options to save as wallpaper OR choose where the picture is going to be saved.
    I dont wanna take the phone back but if i find another thing wrong with it, i will be!

  • Im getting one for Christmas i heard tat they sometimes freeze and the menu system is tricky to use but u could get use to tat.i just want to know if it has caller identification when some one calls you?

  • Took my o2 x1 back for a refund yeaterday, just looking for a decent replacement now. Sorry to those getting one for christmas but you will be dissapointed after a couple of weeks.I hd to recharge it practically every day and on calls it would cut out every second or third word. The camera is very good quality but i already have a good camera, i bought a phone. Also, you can record video on it but it plays back at double speed, no way to avoid this. If you haven’t bought an o2 x1 yet, DONT!! Avoid it like the plague..

  • i am not impressed with mine. the screen sometimes freezes, it turns itself off randomly and i find it very slow to text. im hoping its a fault and i can get a replacement that is ok.

  • how do u mean that the buttons are unsupported does it mean its hard to use them and that they dont text very easily im looking for a good quality camera phone thats flip and is easy to use, plus it has to be attractive and quite small wot would u suggest then

  • me again, just wondering can you download the pictures you take on your mobile onto your computer and print them out? plz email me! thanx.

  • Im getting the 02 x1 for crimbo, and im reealy excited about it. Ive been reading reviews on it, and was wondering what is it about the menu tht ppl say is tricky? if u have any info plz email me!

  • my new fone has come and i am so excited i have had a look at it it is by far the best fone it is light small and fits in all my littl pockets

  • my new fone has come and i am so excited i have had a look at it it is by far the best fone it is light small and fits in all my littl pockets

  • my new fone has come and i am so excited i have had a look at it it is by far the best fone it is light small and fits in all my littl pockets

  • I aint had this fone yet, but im really lookin forward 2 it!!! Ive heard a lot about the buttons n menu bein tricky, and it keeps freezin up, i dunno if this is true. is might be a bad batch or it could still be a common fault. I hope it aint cause itz a really gud luckin fone, n i dont want 2 have 2 send it back because of that. I hope mines a good one

  • This phone is the best I love it!!

    Just one problem how the hell do u stop it playing at double speed on camcorder mode

  • i have had the 02 x1 for 2weeks now and it is easily the best phone i have ever had the menu is a bit tricky at first but it is just so great the camera is just brilliant and all i can say is
    ERM…….PURE BRILLIANT

  • hello, could you tell me if the 02 x1 can take the pictures in the dark, for example in a nightclub. If not do any of you know which phone does so.

    Thankyou

  • I’ve had this phone for 2 0r 3 weeks now, I do love it but there are a few things annoying me about it:
    1) the video clips only play back at double speed,
    2) the phone turns itself off randomly or freezes, which can only be remedied by taking the battery off and on again,
    3) I am not able to buy any accesories for it, I don’t want anything flash, just a second charger to leave at my boyfriend’s house and a data cable, but they don’t exist yet, according to all the 02 shops in Birmingham,
    4) the alarm doesn’t turn down (mild heart attack every morning) and no discreet alarm either!

    But apart from all that its ok for a free phone, maybe 02 will update it and replace the ones sold to us lot who got them when they first came out!
    feel free to email!

  • I love this phone, it is so easy to use and I will never return to a nokia. This phone is perfect in every way possible.

  • i have heard alot of good stuff about this mobile it seems to al be true about how easy the menus are after about a weeks of use and the style is just brill you cant get any better my mate said to me go and buy the nokia n gage from the o2 shop and i just see this phone advertised on the wall so i thought i would have a go with it and i found the buttons a bit hard to get used to but i bought it and as soon as i got outside the shop i went to a bench and opened it and used it ,the phone is just so good i will nevr go back to nokia,unless they make a flip phone which has 360 degree camera 130k colour screen and has much better features ,but that aint gonna happen is it a good buy for anyone that is bout 15-20

  • I only had a look at the o2 x1 whilst on my break but already it has impressed me. The x1 is small compact, with the stylish clam shell design it is a definite must have for all mob user, with 65k colour screen the quality of the 180 degree camera is superb it’s just as good as my mums mp3 camera which she paid £600 for.

  • I have this phone and all i can say is its gr8. It has to be made me samsung no doubt about it.

    Same Styling as V 200 for camer module

    Same Conector at bottom as V200

    Same Charger Design as V200

    Same Hands free kit as suplied with the Samsung A800

  • The X1 is pretty nifty. The camera is one of the best on a phone that I’ve seen.

    Polyphonic ringtones on this phone are amazing, easily the best i’ve heard. I think tehy are 40 channel quality over the usual 4 or 16!

    The features are fine, but why can’t I find a data cable anywhere for it?

    O2’s website offers the phone for sale, but has no further info or accesories for it.

    The menus can be fiddly, but once you get used to them they are fine. All in all a good phone and one that has taken me away from Nokia for the first time ever, and I don’t think I’ll be going back!
