im getting really sick of waiting for this phone to come out in australia.... hurry up nokia!! get your act together! Im sure its worth the wait....
joystick is bad??? but... this phone have a navipad not a joystick, if you say a joystick its bad you probably mean a sony ericsson!
Its seem ridiculers, one say " for 2 days, but crash about 14 times" another say "Sold off my 6280 and bought this 6233 (no regret)". It causes confusion to those awaiting to get one...... anyway, it also maybe different countries have different Version, I assume. Till now, still no one bring up those old designed problem which takes place in 6230i. Most common compliant.....ascending ring tone.... still waiting for someone who "plays" all the functions of this phone & standup to share their findings...very appreciated.
i'll be verry diisapointed in nokia if there is a problem with this fne like i did with the nokia 6280
Waiting for the review of this phone before I buy. GSMARENA whats taking you so long to release the review. I'm currently having a 6280. Superb phone functionally. Thouhg finishing of the plastics could have been better.
Sold off my 6280 and bought this 6233 (no regret).
Basically, both phone functions are the same.
Even the camera and video format also of same quality, video VGA resolution 640X480 that is much better than N70/80 (358X288).
The phone build are solid with a stainless steel frame along the edge, buttons are easy to press, QVGA screen similar to 6280 (bright).
Both phones has bluetooth & infrared connectivity.
6233 does not have a flash (but actually flash not so bright & not useful unlike digicam.
6233 does not have front camera for 3G calls but can see opposite party on the screen.
6233 look/feel more solid as 6280 plasticky.
The 6233 have dual stereo speakers, very good for music. 6233 because no need to slide open & close very troublesome and also 6280 looked toyish.
As for the color, black is nicer (lasting color).
Conclusion: 6233 has the best video resolution similar 6280 and camera 2 mega also good. As for music, 6233 dual build in stereo speakers really sound good.
surprising quite cheap at only S$565 with a free nokia bluetooth earpiece.
I have this phone for 2 days, but crash about 14 times!!! I asked nokia service center in Jakarta and they said new software is unstable.
The joystick is bad, and keypad is hard!
the menu respons is slow.
not good phone i think.
Wooooo hooo we're loosing our minds waiting for this lovely apparatus.
How the heck a layman looking at our posts gonna know about screen quality by reading figures like 2"..2.2" etc. Case in point the screens of 6233 and 6280. Both have a pixcel spread of 240*320. In 6233's case the pixcels are spread in a raster measuring 31 millimeter * 41 millimeter.Now in 6280's case the pixcels are spread in a raster measuring 34 millimeter * 45 millimeter. Thus 6233's dot pitch will come to 31mm/240 pixcels = 0.1292mm while 6280's comes to 0.1417. Though the difference is marginal in absolute measurement terms, but given the scale of measurements of the two screens,the display of 6233's will be much more smoother, crisper to the eye. Hence pls provide the pixcel dot pitch while dicussing screen capability. That is a good indicator of screen clarity. Ah yes ..since on the topic, keep to metric scale of measurement. That makes it a lot easier to imagine scale for 8/10ths of the this planets population ;)...Ashton
Ive only seen it in black and it looks beautiful, solid, sexy and shiny yet sophisticated and mature. One of the best looking phones currently and it has great applications like a translator.
