Awesome smart phone at this price. But you need to know how to use it and install programs just like a PC. Using it for 2years.
Excellent multi tasking ability.I can run 3 browsers at a time.One for downloading (UC) and other for browsing (opera).
Even you can run 3 music players at the same time,for a fun. (ttpod,power mp3 etc)
Awesome HD display with 16 million colour. No other phone at this price can never match.
Pdf file support via Picsel smart office, Adobe reader, Alternate reader etc.
Ms word, power point, excel support via third party softwares.
Pretty solid build.No problem evenif you drop it.
New music player update with lyrics support.
Awesome keyboard. You will like typing in it. Actually i am typing from this phone. Descent touch experience.
Amazing camera with mp4 video recording at 30fps.
Gprs is class 32.Descent speed 30-40 KBps (average)or more at a good network.
Support symbian apps and jaua too.
Zip and Rar file extraction via third party softwares.
(install free unrar ,zip manager ,xplore etc)
Tons of hd themes to make your phone fresh.
Support motion sensor games.
The only drawback is the loudspeaker. With my philips headphone,audio quality is amazing.
Using it for two years, can't find another better hd phone at this price range. Thanks a lot and well done Nokia. Trust is always with you.

which is the best headset suitable for our nokia 5233?? plz tell me your preference ASAP.
One of the best mobile from nokia,
not 3g but 2g also works smoothly,
multi-tasking, good camera,video recording very good, i have been using this phone from 2 years and i did not notice any fault..
Battery backup is nice...all the apps. Work on it...
Well done nokia,
i hope another 5233 with dual sim n 3g support should also be launched...
Xcelent one,video quality,browsing amazing, nokia should update its internal memory, pdf availabivity and its gaming quality and make it available in the market. Overal dis is d most impressiv handset i'v ever come across with.
Around 2yrs back I had diz 4n,nice resolution decent camera with good ppi(180) well in diz price-range although the sound quality is juz average..... Now m using Galaxy SII which is far more bttr dn nokia 5233,bt still I luv diz 4n. It was 1 of the best 4n in itz price range......!!!"
I've this for several month...yupz,,it's only 2g phone but with edge class 32,,it's not too slow,,but for game,,not all games u can play,,there's not enough ram,,so,it'll makes a game be slowly...overall,,it's nice phone,,for cheap price hehe
rahul, 21 Sep 2012yes u r right i saw this practically.i have this phone,this phone was like first class but the video were unsucess to see' generally camera was the best ever i see...nokia 5233..is..the'best..?
my quick office is not working.pdf reader are not supporting indicates that trail expired.you tube downloader is working
It is the best phone on the price range of Rs 5500 to 6000. Camera is descent enough. it even takes nice photos at low light conditions, It gives a feel of having HD display. ( 640x360 ) and colors are amazing.
It is bit slow but i recently created CFW for my 5233 and flashed it and now it's working smoothly. Tough it doesn't have 3g but speeds are mice enough.! It gives 25 to 30 KB/s download as well as upload speeds in aircel network. It has a resistive touch , but too smooth. Really value for money handset. Jus earphones and USB cable that are provided in the box as accessories are jus a crap..!!
For two years that i have had this phone, it has generally been ok but the earpiece goes frustratingly deaf/mute sometimes unless i activate loud speaker. this deafness/muteness happens without any warning. It also has issues with the touch function, when i touch one icon, a different one activates so name searches and message writing is sometimes very frustrating, not to mention fixed dialling. Finally the phone does not know how to arrange anniversaries as in 5th, 10th, or 50th anniversary. My standing ovation goes to the old Nokia Classic 2700 for this anniversary function
very nice to use this phone.This phone is very very better than Samsung galaxy y and this phone has java but galaxy y does not have java.so buy a 5233 phone.
Rishikesh, 23 Sep 2012Good but not 3G.it is 2G.i want buy 3g handsetDear Sir,
If you all think that it is not a 3G handset only 2G supported.. Your very correct , so you can do 1 thing kindly visit the handset retailer shop and do buy a 3G supportable handset... Bcoz while taking the handset obviously the cover of that handset is given. So when ever you all take any handset Kindly look carefully be keeping your eyes FULLY OPEN and then buy any kindly of Handset directly don't blame anything for any handset...
