If you are to compare N3230 to Sony Ericsson W800, which phone will you get? Since both phone has almost identical features just that W800 has better camera.
Right, people worry to much, that is it! I t is a very good phone, indeed...The only issue really stange, lets say is the battery...That says, that a better 3230 upgraded phone will be released...
please suggest , i want to buy this phone , should i buy it now or should i wait for sometime for updated version. please do suggest as soon u can ok. r there any major drawbacks of this phone except for mono mp3.
guys! forget all about nokia and buy a sonyericsson, you'll see the difference!!
i just bought this phone.
camera is working fine. the image taken was bright enough.
when i upload the pics to my computer, the object looks a bit blur, but it's not a big problem.
mp3 player is not good, but i can live with a mono player :D
Can sombody tell me how the performace of edge and gprs is when using the phone? Is it good for surfing on the net? It will depend ofcourse on the quality of your operator and area.
Some of the whinging about this phone makes me laugh, the same people are saying how the 6630 is sooo much better. Yet I remember the launch of the 6630, the bugs and glitches were far worse than anything the 3230 has thrown up, and now look at it. All issues are resolved in a few months with updates. And as for the camera issue, I have noticed it, but it's not as bad as some people make out, and it is simply a re-sizing issue, once Nokia send an update it'll be cool.
Thanks for your reply , but try to instal the mp3 program or something like it ... than play mp3 files using the HDS ,
and tell us the result !!!
"The MP3 files will be stereo when you put in the headset
try it !!!
and please tell us about the result.."
It´s not true, it´s not working (Tried on my friend´s n3230). The phone is great in all ways, except mp3. It sounds really terribly. 192kbps mp3 sounds like 32kbps crap. But radio sound is perfect.
Any other idea how to "cheat" mp3 to play perfect like stereo ?
I am planing to buy this great phone.
But there is something I have noticed, if you look at the phone pictures in the site http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_3230-pictures-923.php
you will see that in the upper photo the upper buttones of the mobile are black, if you scroll down to the next photos you will see the the upper buttones of the mobile are silver.
So I am confused... are there two models or what?
I know there is Black and Red, but I don't know about the upper buttones' color..
Plz if you have the phone, tell me what is the color of it's upper buttones...
dude 6230 was the 3rd fone i had and the mp3 is mono ;unlike 6230i which has a stereotype sound and also regarding the problems u mentioned i guess u r the only 3230 owner who has the foresaid problems .....
till today nokia3230 does not have any problem I dont get why they write that there is problem i have inserted 512 mb card and it works fine and also according to me there are no bugs at this moment because i am using this phone since 3 months i bought from germany
if people feel there is bug just wait for new software upgrade all poblem will be solved like that of nokia6630
i have 4 problems until now
1-storing the messages at memory card
2-edit the icons in the themes
3-no key gard
4-call counter not working on it (AngrySoft.CallCounter.v1.1.S60.SymbianOS6) it used to work on 3650
Surely the proportionality problem can be fixed with an update? If not I'm gonna be very angry!
Yups, the firmware version, as of today, 6 April 2005, is the same as mentioned.
I hope the unproportionality quality of the pictures is due to a software oversight (which can be resolved by a firmware upgrade) rather than a hardware defect. If its the latter, I doubt we early adopters can demand for a fix. "Picture quality inherent in different production batch" might be Nokia Care's response and we'll be stuck big time.
In the meantime, those with access to freewarre/cracked symbian applications can consider installing other 3rd party camera applications and use them to take pictures. Update us on the quality.
The reception of the FM radio is very good, Visual Radio should be up and running in the middle half of the year. BroadcastAsia 2005 in June/July thereabouts will see the introduction of Visual Radio in our region.
I'm using a 512mb RS-MMC and it works fine on my set.
