Most of the budget touchscreen phones from Samsung, LG have a resolution of 240*400 or 240*320 and they are not smartphones either. But the Nokia 5230 is having a display of 360*640 and runs Symbian 60 5th edition. It is basically same as 5800 without GPS, Wifi and 3G. It is worth getting considering the money you pay for it.
this phone is good but overall its slow and i have ahs the phone for two days and now when get a txt i never here it and it doesnt come upp
Ok guys . i hve been using nokia 5230 for about 1 week. and to tell u the truth , this is the 2nd mobile phone which really came up to my expectations. 1st was nokia 6303 nd now this. nokia 5230 is a great phone . its features r same as 5800 except wifi nd led flash.
camera quality is amazing . really i compared both 5230 nd 5800 nd 5230 pics were more bright nd detailed.
battery timing is absolutely fantastic . i here a lot of music nd surf net still this phone can easily live up to 1.5 to 2 days.
no hanging or restart .
So my final words r tht if u want a touch screen mobile go for 5230 instead of 5800. u won't regret . believe me.
