Basic phones and smartphones have a lot of difference, from installing applications, to designing. There seems to be no common point between these two types of devices, however, there are still phones that want to erase this line.
"Nokia's former king" Nokia had a hard time finding a foothold in the smartphone market. Nokia is one of the companies that launched phones in the boundary between basic phones and smartphones. C3-01 Touch and Type are two devices that do this.
Launched in 2010, both have a 2.4-inch screen with a resolution of 240×320 pixels, resistive touch and of course the S40 operating system, which has been adjusted to support touch. This also reminds us of the Nokia 5800 XperssMusic story and although this idea has the potential, these are the only two devices in the Touch and Type line to be launched.
The Series 40 UI is easy to navigate with D-pad and a few smart keys. But D-pad is not needed in these devices, users just need to swipe up and down to scroll. Smart keys have been replaced by on-screen buttons. The home screen even has customizable widgets!
Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type UI
The user interface is still simple, which is essential because the screen is small and the resistance layer is not very accurate.
The Touch and Type duo are quite capable enough to serve users when they debut. They have 3G connectivity as well as Wi-Fi, so you can browse the web wherever you are. In addition, Opera Mini supports touch screens and provides the best possible experience with the hardware of the machine.
Speaking of hardware, Nokia X3-02 and C3-01 are quite powerful. Initially, the phone debuted with a single-core 680 MHz processor, 64 MB RAM and 128 MB storage (with a microSD card slot). Later there was more C3-01.5 Gold Edition launched in 2011 with upgraded power.
This version CPU clock higher, up to 1GHz and double the RAM, up to 128GB, the storage capacity is also doubled. This makes it possible to record 480p @ 30fps video (previously only 15fps) from the 5MP rear camera of the device.
These numbers are ridiculous today, but the 2008 iPhone 3G only had a 412MHz chip and 128MB of RAM. It was not until the iPhone 4 launched in 2010 that Apple used the 1GHz chip. Therefore, although these two phones cannot compare to the modern experience of Apple phones, they are still very strong basic phones.
This is one of the fastest basic phones ever made. J2ME applications and games also need a lot of RAM, they are designed to run on devices with much lower performance than Nokia X3-02 and C3-01.
Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type UI
Unfortunately, Nokia doesn't come with the ability to switch apps on the Touch and Type duo, you can't even leave the app to make a call and close the app.
These two machines have a metal appearance, which feels quite high-end. Especially, C3-01 gives an impression as Nokia phones for businessmen.
Just now, but what is the difference between C3-01 and X3-02? C3-01 has a more formal design, it has a dedicated answer and hangover button, a larger 1,050mAh battery and LED flash. X3-02 in the direction of youthful, focused entertainment with buttons for media and buttons for messages, it is also thinner (9.6mm compared to 11mm), resulting in only equipped with a smaller 860mAh battery, rear flash was also cut.
Both phones have HD Voice, Bluetooth 2.1 and USB On-the-Go, which allow you to read USB and use USB accessories. And yes, you can plug in a USB keyboard.
Today, HMD is trying to "revitalize" Nokia's classic phones and install KaiOS based on the ill-fated Firefox operating system Do you want the Touch and Type series to regenerate as KaiOS phones?
