Sonia, 10 Aug 2010Suggest me a earphone ..... My max budget is 450.....PLZZTry and see if you cant get Nokia HS-45 Earphones! Great sound quality!
I have been using Nokia phones since I was 7! Nokia is simply the best out there! Nokia 5230 is a great phone with great features, its in actual fact better then 5800 just lacks the stereo speakers, front camera and 3.2mp camera but these phones are the same! I used 5800 for a year and sold it to buy 5230, wasnt a mistake! When listening music make sure to buy the Nokia HS-45 EARPHONES they are standard 5800 earphones! Nokia is a great fast responsive touch i would recommend to any and everyone! There is nothing bad about this phone! 10/10 for nokia
I have been using Nokia 5230 for almost 3months and its a awesome smartphone.......one must ignored other cellphones of this price range and get......i love its GPS.......u are getting alot of features at an affordable price.....
garam reshma, 10 Aug 2010is this handset has scratch resistant screen???? It is not scratch resistant but you can purchase a screen protector. I did. It was very simple to apply to the screen. Got mine for 8 euros but I am sure you can get a cheaper one.If you're not sure how to install the screen protector, you can visit youtube and watch a few instructions that's what I did also.
NOTE: REMEMBER: hacking your 5230 will void the software warrantee. So better sign your apps on cer.opda.cn/en OR hack your 5230 after 1 year
neha, 10 Aug 2010Which is better c5 or 5230? pls help.both C5 and 5230 are Symbian S60 so no argument there. But I'm inclined towards 5230 just because of the big screen.
NOTE: REMEMBER: hacking your mobile will voild your mobile software warrantee. so better use cer.opda.cn/en to sign software.. OR hack your mobile after 1 year..
prs, 09 Aug 2010if sound is constraint then u should better wait fo x2 bcause c5 too does not possess a monosp... moreDo u think a 5 mp camera for 5500, is that true. well irrespective of the sound quality which is better c5 or 5230. i need a long lasting fone so a touchscreen puts me in doubts.
download and install widgetizer to simply costomize yoir homescreen.. get it on dailymobile.se . low in size..
BTW, to those who doesn't want to use spbshell. you can use Orange Oratsu homescreen. It's minimalistic, simple, yet as practical as spb in many ways
sipo, 10 Aug 2010Can u make VIDEO calling on this phone.no video calling as there's no front-camera (though other nokia models can do it via the main cam at the back)
3G of this unit is for data transfer (when you surf the net). If your country doesn't support 3G, then you're better off with the 5233, same hardware less functionality, cheaper price.
prs, 10 Aug 2010no no no if you want it then go for 5800 or wait for c6C6 has mono speaker too, I think. I can't remember where I read it. Not sure so check first before you buy.
mike, 10 Aug 2010hey noypi... thank you for your comment.. but still.. can you rate the speaker from 1-10? then... moreI maybe biased a little here coz the Philippines is a texting country so I don't use the speakerphone that much. My advise is this, if on-board speakear(s) is/are a great deal to you maybe you should consider X6 but double the price of 5230 if not more.
But with my Philips and Senny earphones, it rocks totally.
