Buds, 21 Jun 2010Nokia is fooling its consumers! Now here come 5235 with better sound quality! Shame on you nok... moreNope. 5235 has the same hardware (except for the chrome edging) with 5230. The reason why most people say it has better sound quality is because it has a better earphone packaged. It a "Comes with Music" phone sorta like XpressMusic but it has the same sound output via the speaker or via the headphonesport. Use the headset of the 5235 on your 5230 and it will have the same sound as the 5235.
5235 comes with a heftier price with basically the same phone. If you want the 1 year free music downloads from ovi, then buy the 5235.
For budget conscious buyers, the 5233 is even a better deal albeit without 3G capability. (If you don't need 3G go for it)
But if you want the 3g functionality and gps, then 5230 is the best buy with the affordable pricing.
5235 owners would say, it's the software that makes the sound better, then install the 5235 FW on your 5230 as I did. use navifirm and it's there. hahaha.
You would ask me? is it compatible with 5230? the answer is YES? why? Because as I have said earlier, it's the same phone in a different package. :)
Ok here what ive discovered. It really has a nice/fair sound quality...try to remove the battery cover and play ur music, its louder and clearer. Its a trapped under a faulty casing.
Great Phone in Great Budget. If one can live without WiFi and your on tight budget, this phone is your answer.
1. Great Responsive Touch Screen, Great on-screen QWERTY key, which is very responsive too.
2. One of my favorite feature is its A-GPS. GPS work like charm and you got life time turn by turn voice navigation free with OVI Maps 3 (thanks to Nokia).
3. Web Browsing in good experience on the phone, but heavy pages tends to load slower on the native browser. But 3rd party browser can solve that problem easily.
4. Email client works GREAT, you can add multiple accounts.
5. Overall experience with the mobile phone was great (pretending that I don't need WiFi), Camera Image is Good, I enjoyed capturing video in High resolution using the phone.
A Great Smart Phone Without WiFi. From Me its 8.8/10
kindly please i need your support to inform me about how to make video call ?????????
i need the steps plz
Nokia is fooling its consumers! Now here come 5235 with better sound quality! Shame on you nokia people!
I bought the 5230 a month ago and I am so impressed with all the functions. This is an amazing phone for the price. The phone never freeze. Internet is fantastic always on 3.5g. I get all my e-mails, facebook is great and fast and browsing is a pleasure.. no FRREZING. The a-gps is free on this phone and so convenient and never loose signal. All the Apps form Ovi store is good, news24,accuweather,good games and fun stuff. the on screen keybord is effective.
The Nokia 5230 is just an amazing phone and I can tell you that there is just NO other phone in this price range with all this functions and ease of use.

I got one in February. Works very well as a PMP and pretty good for browsing, especially with the latest S/W update it does justice to full webpages. The screen is good under artificial light and in low light but is poor in sunlight. Battery life is quite good with standby upto 4-5 days with 1 hour of music everday and 15 mins or so of calling
i was having having some software issues in my 5230 just a few days after its purchase and had to take it to Nokia care for repair. I dun feel like keeping it n e more and thinking of getting a 5233 or a samsung( corby or star).
Can n e body tell if 5233 is stable in terms of functionality and specially software or samsung wud b a better option?
