The battery life is deceiving, way below par compare to average low end nokia phone. Mp3 quality is lousy and smsing is a chore. No addition of words into the dictionary mode for smsing also. Seriously if you are considering a cheap mp3 phone, or phone with LONG battery life, look for nokia 3109 and avoid this piece of garbage at all cost.
small screeen but efficient...
only thing i h8 are the keypads...
its so hard to txt using this fn...
raiz, 21 May 2008hi guys! i was just looking for a phone in range of Rs 4-3000. Can some one answer these q... moreHi, you used Rs. Are you from Mauritius? The W230 and W270 will be available in Mauritius in 6 weeks time. The price will be less than Rs 3500.00 all tax inclusive (Vat inclusive retail price). I have tested the phone. Nothing comparable, and much more with the CrystalTalk, it is really crystal communication.
Anonymous, 28 May 2008can someone tell me is w23 or w270 better? it seem like both phone have the same funtion just ... moreya w 270 u doesnt set as mp3 ringtones....
besr u can go to w 230 model..bcz of im using 230 model only..its really rocks better than w 270.... and compare to 270 best display resolution in w230......
can someone tell me is w23 or w270 better? it seem like both phone have the same funtion just that one is flip one is candybar. so is there any any different between both, someone did mention that w270 cant play mp3 as ring tone, is that true
does not work fine and I have seen a lot of people complaining about it
I have purchased W230. I like w230 mobile. it is very chip price and good mobile.
I am the happy owner of a mandarine w230, for 8 days now and i don't know how other people have battery problems. My w230 lasted 7 full days on the first charge with 1.5 hours of calls, 30 min music threw speaker(not headphones), 30 messages and an hour of menu surfing. So it's awesome for a second phone!
The sound of mp3 is ok when listening with headphones(it coluld be louder), the radio is ok(i don't listen radio), the mp3 ringtones are loud and clear on max speaker volume, the display is way better than the ones from nokia(for ex 2626) and the in call volume is super ok.
I don't like the headphones, if you find a 3.5 jack adaptor and if you use other headphones i think music experience is better.
My w230 is locked on orange and has a 512mb card included.
Hope my review was helpfull.
