i plan to buy either 5230 or 5233. which is better in performance. i don't care about 3G and gps though. i am more concerned in performance.
In the philippines, one shope sells 5230 for 7590 pesos and 5233 for 6590. but i think 5233 has no usb cable and no micro sd card. but i think the 5230 has usb cable and micro sd card. so if i will buy 5233 and buy usb and micro sd card separate i think i will end up paying same amount when buying 5230 with usb and micro sd card included.
so for me both are like priced the same amount. so i will just decided on performance on which to buy between the two. the one with less problems or issues. so which i should choose. does the two has same picture quality and same video caput quality. and does it have same processor. which is better in internal processor. hope to get an answer thanks.

hope i helped. :)

beat, 11 May 2010 i really don't need 3g and gps , i think it is more easy 2 ask our ways from people than gps ... moreSorry mate.... I was busy all morning..
So let me just answer your queries in the same order.
1- Yes you can download Bolt for this phone. Just now I have tried the bolt 2.0 beta version and it works just fine. And yes you can play youtube vides through the browser as well.
2- Yes this phone supports all youtube videos or everything i've tried so far. But even if the video has HD format variant, you can only view the normal quality video as it is quite understandable.
3- Theoretically yes. This phone comes with builtin Flash lite 3.0 adn there is flashlite 3.1 already release and can be upgreaded easily. Flashlite 3.0 is equivalent to flash 9.0 for web. So all flash content optimised for 9.0 sholud work with just slight incompatibility issues.
4- Yes you can watch videos in full screen. Just have to position the page over the screen so that the video part covers the whole screen.
5- Yes all java games I've tried so far including 3d games work fine on this. There is even a newer beta version of the JRE available for download which optimises the performance of the java engine. The built in java runtime environment (JRE) will just do the job for you. I have even successfully installed and played ngage games for nokia n95 with not much trouble. It even supports multiplayer ovet bluetooth.
6- Well this i'm not too sure off. But in google when I changed the language settings to hindi, the builtin web browser was able to display the hindi fonts clearly. I guess it's upto you to find out for yourself. But I do think it can do so.
Hope this helps
