i have nokia 5230 its sound volume is same as 5800 but sound quality is better than 5800.. its camera volume cant be silent even in silent mode
@sujith, no this is not an Xpress Music phone but as per the review (read it) it's comparable to an Xpress Music phone, in fact there are aspects of the audio tests wherein 5230 is better than 5800 and 5530. look at the review
got mine two days back @ INRs.8400/- with bill & warranty
no cable, no card & no cover
but can download 10 songs from nokia music store
its good once u get used to its touch
sound quality is a little low
screen is bad @ day light
camera is very poor
battery lasted one day with heavy experimenting on it
already to many scratches on the screen
gprs is fast
screen resolution is good
software is sturdy
can anyone tell me how is the ringtone volume of this phone, and also the camera quality, is this the xpress music series,and how is the battery life
The Samsung star is the best touchscreen available in the budget segement.It offers true one-touch experience and not like 5230 where alot of times you need to press twice. Widget interface is the in thing and the star has that.excellent loudspeaker ,slim ,messaging capabilities with wifi also.
I want to buy this phone. There is just one thing I like to know before I do. Is the black body/casing of the 5230 not as sleek and shiny as the 5800? The images used in the review is that of the silver one so it doens't show in the comparison. I wish they used a black 5230 for the review. anyway to those who have hands-on experience holding both phones, how do you compare the color and finish of the 5230 to the 5800. thanks very much
wats its price in mumbai? And wat comes with pack data cable, card or back cover
Hello every one.I am very interested in this phone and i would like to know when this year will this mobile come out in south africa? and about how much will it cost in south africa(zar) please reply if you got any info................Thanks.
Just got one yesterday A black 5230 I would say it looks dam dam dam CLASSY trust me when u actually look at it good to hold very responsive touchphone Slightly expensive in Mumbai, India where VAT is applicable 12.5% on the total cost of the cell which is only around 8300 INR Costed me 9300 INR the NPD offered me a data cable a/w 2gb memory card all this for total of 10000 Makes a lot of sense to buy phones which r under 10000 INR bracket the prices are very steady they do not drop very soon example :10000 will not become 5000 or 6000 at the most 8000 or 2500 and on the other hand expensive cell costing like 15000 or 2000 become almost half the price especially the ones do not move AGREE

Nokia user, 04 Jan 2010Someone tell exact in box contents of this phoneIts different from a market to another. In some packages it has 2 additional back covers, USB cable and 1 Gb card. In other markets it has no cable, no card. In Romania, it doesnt have the additional back covers, but it has usb cable and card.
sayan, 04 Jan 2010hi bought this phone.its awesome.its vague to buy 5800 becoz 5230 has all similar features mor... moreIts good actually that it comes without a memory card and a USB cable.
People who wants it can buy it but who do not want it shouldn't. So this way you are saved by not paying for something you don't want just because it is included in the sales package.
Same is about the mico SD card. People who want it can buy the one they like and this saves you from buying a not-so-useful 1 or 2 GB card with the phone. You can buy a 8 or 16 GB one.
Removing things from the retail pakage, Nokia has brought the price down for an average user.
Makes sense, doesn't it?
