the os is very crude and very rough. many features that basicaly found on s40 that are missing in this phone. basic apps like countdown timer, stopwatch or may a selectable phone content lock are not built in. you might say that i can always download free apps but nokia should have installed it on the os so if i reformaat my phone it will be their on the phone. i dont want to download and install them again. it should have been installed with the phone because these apps are also what you will see on cheaper s40 nokias.
i hope nokia will not use 400 mhz processors anymore and would only use 600 mhz and up on their touch phones. 400 is too slow and very ancient. opening the sms maker on the 5230 is the slowest response i have ever seen so far. i thought my samsung u800 was slow, but now it is clear to me that nokia touch screen phones with 400 mhz is slowest phone i think. the ram is too little like those found on their n 97 which are very expensive yet they put on 120 something ram and 400 something processor.i bought this phone 2 months ago thinking i bought a midrange performer but in reality it performs worst than cheap 2 mega pixel phones. my old 3120 classic can operated much faster and more easily even though it is a s40 nokia.
