I've been using this phone for 3 weeks, for $ 185, this phone really rocks
+ Nice and large 3.2" display really great for browsing or facebook app
+ Nice Symbian S60v5 OS with kinetic scroll ( yeah S60v5 is an ancient OS by today standard, but hey it's a $185 phone )
+ Nice GPS
+ Nice sound quality especially when paired with good earphone
the minuses are:
- Really poor earphone quality that comes with the headset
- The Alarm is Buggy!! you can't turn it off while the phone is locked, no big deal though, you can install other alarm app
- Poor display under sunlight, but most phones suffer from direct sunlight...
Camera results are very good, specifically it's Video results in high quality TV video mode is awesome ; both audio and video. plays video in mp4 very clear.
Sound is good in music player but satisfactory with headphones. it's applications are also useful. over all its a brilliant phone with such a reasonable price, to be honest.

akshay, 13 Feb 2010hey bro emir why do you think thats not true if u dont believe me u urself can inquire about i... morewell u say maybe it will have stereo speakers and more memory,but then that will not be same phone anymore! u know? that cant be nokia 5230! maybe nokia will show 5230i on wmc tomorrow like they did with 6303c but i really doubt! its too early to do that! i really think those are just rumours!
Anonymous, 13 Feb 2010Hey cn u tel me whether the sound clarity n loudnes is as gud as 5130?Plz reply..I can becouse i haved 5130 xm almost one year ago! in speaker quality its almost same! i would say that volume is same just 5230 have better speaker quality it sounds great with alot of bass not like 5130! and in headphones...well i am using same sonicear headphones for more than year and i can say that both phones are same! i think i cant see much difference! maybe but just maybe 5130 is little higher in volume! thats all! so u should have same music experiance!i must say that i am amazed with 5230 baterry
hey bro emir why do you think thats not true if u dont believe me u urself can inquire about it ......... and about the price if it raise then it would again fall down as this phone firstly was expected to be of rs. 10000 but see now it is just less then or somewhat equal to rs. 8000 not more then that ................

wow thats really a good news yaar i am really waiting for nokia to start selling 5230 again and they had done
nokia really rocks
hey guys i am come here with good news that nokia have not stop the production of 5230yet and it would neither stop in upcoming years even............... so to all who are going to buy nokia 5233 pls do not because this phone will be available in few days as it stocks had been completed and nokia had again started its production with some new specifications like the memory had been increased to 256mb from 70 mb and the sound loudness would also be increased may be they can give stereo speakers this time and many more changes had been done ........... to whom who doubt about which phone to take i would say to go with nokia 5230 because it has all plus points over nokia 5233 like 3g a very nice gps and lifetime free navigation and many more ............... if anybody doubt about my comment they themselves can ask to nokia care or can themself call to them on 30303838 ............. regards akshay
