Atleast this phone should be made on S60 platform with multitusking. Don't know why nokia or microsoft hide S60 platform and continuously releases phones on S30 or S40 platforms which are more useless in these smartphone era.If they bring these phones with S60 platform, there will be a tough competetion between low budget androids and nokia. Now what Nokia/Microsoft thinks is totally uncontemporary.
shi, 05 Jan 2016it doesn't work Whatsapp,My cheap android smartphone supports whatsapp and has everything I need. (wifi, autofocus, no SMS limit, many apps, 3G etc.)
This is not a smartphone.This is a feature phone and it is a very good phone.
No 4g, even 2G!...
When Nokia completely left planet EARTH, we'll have it as better than before.
This phone would have been a better small, smart and luxury phone if Nokia had allow it to support the JAVA Apps (MIDP).
230 is only a brother of 215, 220, 225. It doesn't support any downloadable app. It hasn't Whattsapp. Internet capability, very limited, 2G network, only browsing on some sites, no email. Can't read any document. Some phones have problems with microphone and/or speaker, voice leakeage. This phone is really good only for calls, sms, pictures (only 2 mp camera...). The OS of the phone is S30+, which is garbage, worst than S40 of precedent (and real) Nokia phones. There are many feature phones available on market with better specs than S30+ phones from Nokia/Microsoft.
is this good for using fb messenger? using only mobile data and is viber available?
also can somebody share their opinion about buying this unit thanks.
''One eye sees,the other eye feels.''
I can see and i can feel that this is a good phone.
Rigel, 01 Jan 2016Nokia 515 is better than this.. The only good here is front camera with flash.Nokia 515 and Samsung S5611 are probably the best feature phones currently on the market.
AnonD-465009, 31 Dec 2015will it support whatsapp?Main drawback is doesn't support whatsapp,it is not good enough for this price,Skype Facebook Bing supported phone.
