I think u got a defect one. bcoz, 6233 is loud. i mean LOUD! if ur not satisfied with it, get the n73 ME with bose speakers and carry it everywhere. long and heavy?! what planet do u live on! haha
I upgraded from a Nokia 6230, so the 6233 is a natural choice, as it's pretty much an upgrade version of 6230.
- Good mp3 player sound quality.
- Buttons easy to press (but the 6230 Menu btn is better).
- A bit heavy and long.
- Only 5 or 6 MB internal memory, way too small!
- Camera not as good as I thought it would be (2MPixels), but not bad either.
- Sound not loud enough (both talking and mp3 loudspeaker).
- Voice recorder quality not as good/sensitive as 6230's.
Still a good phone to own and use.
let's state some facts for to clear some misunderstandings for future users/buyers of the 6233 unit
fact when people say that 6233 has bad camera they mean it has alot of noise but you can solve this problem by downloading a software for your computer like "noiseware" to eliminate these noises
after putting out those noises its picture quality is comparable to n70
fact 6233 has superior video compared to most n series and other mobiles
VGA(640 x 480,can be considered as n93 video to some extent) is greater than QVGA/CIF(half of what VGA is 320 x 288)
definitely better than any resolutions below it
it is currently one of the few mobiles to achieve a resolution of VGA in video aside from n93 sharp 904 and DV2 and n95(in the future)
do any one knows about the bluetooth speed/version
i.e. is it 2.0 or 1.2
or practically u feel it's good or lazy in comparison 2 others..
u know this is 2005 version & iam afraid it might b lagging in some features
3G. 6233 has 3G. it can video call.
and vga is better than qcif.
A clarification if I must. The 6233 records video at VGA resolution @ 15FPS, which is higher than CIF and QCIF. Anyone who tells you otherwise is an idiot. The playback is superb, although by no means excellent compared to DV cams. But compared to other phones, the Nokia 6233 is only matched by the N93, which costs more than twice.
It's just funny that all these people who are complaining about the phone seem to compare them to phones that are much more expensive. W810i? Hello! That's like $50 more!
The only drawback for me thus far, is multitasking. I'd like to listen to some music from AGALLOCH while I read an EBOOK.
I've also been able to get a WinAVI MP4 video converter, and to circumvent the unfortunate drawback to the player not being able to FWD and REW, WinAVI let's me split my videos down to 5MB a piece. Roughly a 40 minute video can go down to eight 5MB files, think of them as chapters. ;)
Again, still an excellent phone, best one you can buy for $200.
there 2 types of 3G there is the video calling 1 which is called 3G video ..and another called 3G telephony which this 6233 has it allows u to use 3G sim cards and has 3G network access
well it claims its 3g but it doesnt have a camera where u can see u'rself, i thought thats what 3g was? i thought that you could video call someone whilst you can look at them at the same time? i don't get this phone! need help!!
I bought this phone... it wasn't very good...i use my d600 or w850i more.... dont buy......its not very good....
hi again..well i dont know why some people say that the camera result isnt good...its something like trying to make other people dissheart who wanted to buy this phone...guys dont wory go and get this phone..i have already said that in my other openioun and i am again saying that shis is a COMPLETE PHONE .......
hi guys.....i am having this phone and i must tell its just a wonderful device,, it has everything u can think about..camera is wonderful,VGA video is outstanding no cramps in it.....i am a big fan of nokia and i have use N70,, but the camera result of nokia 6233 is a bit bright and kool...and the sound is wonderful batteryyyyyyyyy isssssss soooooo koollllll i must tell u guys.....JUST GO AND BUY THIS PHONE ITS A WONDERFUL PEICE OF PHONE BUY NOKIA..I LOVE IT!!
u r not right vga quality video is the best.qcif(177*144)>cif(352*272)>vga(640*480) so u can compare now which one is d best.
Im happy with my 6233, i can play mp3 files and use them as my ring tones, i find the loud speakers very useful especially when outdoors. over-all 6233 is one of nokia's best creations at an affordable price
Got this phone last week.No usb cable in the box (when nokia supplies a CD with the box, why dont they have the sense to supply a cable). The Mp3 player is difficult to navigate (you have to highlight the play/next keys and then press to make it work, very basic player).The stereo speakers sound good . Camera is lousy, cant believe its 2MP. Cannot use the usb port to charge the phone (I hope all phone manufacturers adopt mini usb and make it possible to charge through the usb port, motorola and sonyericsson have this on most phones). Videos dont play smoothly on this phone (V3x plays the videos much better).Overall disappointed with this phone.
hi...i m planning to buy that mobile...but i think its video is not good...its VGA...all Nokia N-series have QCIF video, which has much better Result......can any one tell me is that true....
And i think if we keep hold the up-key...it will FF...i m not sure because i havent bought it yet...
I just got the 6233, and basically am happy with it. However, the numbers/letters on the keybad are quite difficult to read on the silver phone.
NEED HELP - I loaded the CD-rom provided, and bought a Nokia USB cable, but I couldn't backup contacts (phone no.) from the 6233 to my PC. Can someone help??? Thanks very much.
AN HONEST OPINION:
This is a versatile phone. The 2mp camera is stunningly beautiful, except there is no flash. The surround speakers make listening to music a real experience. The 64MB free mem card with the phone package is not a good deal though. I upgraded into a 1GB mem card. Truly useful. And to all the ignoramuses, the phone INDEED HAS 3G except that the camera for it is not located in front. You have to turn it around for the other party to see you. That's on the bad side. But, who the hell cares about 3G? How many people use 3G? 3% of cellular phone users? I like the BLACK color than the titanium finish.
