Can any 5230 user tell me that is it a good phone?? I mean all rounder???Bcoz I will also buy it..... plz tell me...........
like what they cloned the e71 to have the little brother e63. They use the same strategy, downgrading the succesful 5800xm to this phone. This marketing strategy really gets old. Just add less than 100 bucks, you'll get 5800. Unless 100 bucks is a big deal to you.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2010where did u get that gps app without using gprs?I have downloaded GPS app via PC maps and voice guide,,,,,,,, it rocks.
I am a 5230 user from 2 weeks, I enjoy using 5230. I have installed more than 50 apps and games and I used GPS without GPRS/3G(Internet) with voice assist turn by turn awesome 10/10. And battery for my excess usage 1.5 days 8/10. Music via headphones ultimate equal to my i-pod. I use sony and sheniser headphones. Gaming good and it supports motion gaming.
Please down load photo browser from Nokia labs it's worth with 3D effects better than I phone gallery... So who complains Gallery is slow download this and more from beta labs. You can locate easily in favorites in the below link...... and many more apps
This phone has 3G and GPS.
BUT Nokia 5530 has 3.2 Autofocus camera with flash, Wireless, better music capabilities and it's smaller.
Nokia 5530 is better in my opinion...
SR, 09 Feb 2010Hey! I said that to you remember @2010-02-01 18:34Sure i remember! we were talking about battery covers and why nokia give them just in some countries! but its same like with usb cable,cd,microsd..some ppl get that and some ppl dont! but now on some forums i read that nokia dont give covers anymore and that it was just for first two mounths of release! i dont think its true but maybe! u remember when 5800 first got released? nokia was giving case with the phone and then after few mounths they stop puting cases in box! nokia can be strange sometimes lol
I heard from one of my friend that Nokia reduces the price as well as 3G feature...Is that so ??
SR, 09 Feb 2010Yeah its quite amusing that Nokia ain't selling 5233 anywhere else. Probably because the price... moreI agree with you again! nokia never did anything similar so they wanna try what samsung is doing for long time! they know very good what features ppl are using in wich country,so they cut things that most ppl dont use! plus they dont give anything extra not even one battery cover to make it even cheaper! its same with stylus too i guess! they know very well where ppl are using stylus and where not! so there is phone with stylus in india and some countries and without stylus (mine) !
Emir, 09 Feb 2010I agree with you! and i hope that is true! and it really is sad that ppl tell lies to buyers j... moreYeah its quite amusing that Nokia ain't selling 5233 anywhere else. Probably because the price difference would be almost negligible between the two in other countries.
Nokia is increasingly following into the footsteps of Samsung. Samsung had done something similar actually by introducing a lowcost Corby (which already is a lowcost phone). Corby Pop as it is called has a resistive screen against Corby's capacitive.
Corby Pop (like Nokia 5233) was also launched in India only but is now available in other countries too as Corby Genoa ( http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_c3510_corby_pop_known_as__samsung_genoa_in_europe-news-1353.php )
It seems Nokia wants to experiment with this idea too.
SR, 09 Feb 2010I don't think that Nokia will oficially replace 5230. It is more or less possible that the lat... moreI agree with you! and i hope that is true! and it really is sad that ppl tell lies to buyers just to sell what they have in store at the moment! as i told before if nokia replace 5230 with 5233 in india...that is very bad move! and i dont understand it! they dont sell 5233 anywere else in the world just in india! wich is kinda stupid if they stop selling 5230!
Emir, 09 Feb 2010It really sucks that nokia decided to replace 5230 with 5233 in india and 5233 is just little ... moreI don't think that Nokia will oficially replace 5230. It is more or less possible that the latest production batches are being directed towards other countries/markets like USA where 5230 is rebranded by T-Mobile as Nokia Nuron ( http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_hd2_nokia_5230_and_motorola_zeppelin_going_to_tmobile_usa-news-1432.php ). But as I pointed out Nokia is still marketing 5230.
Its sad that even the official Nokia stores are trying to sell 5233 by resorting to lies and are misinforming people who want to buy 5230.
SR, 09 Feb 2010This is b*ll sh*t. Why don't you ask them if we want GPS what to do then... And tell them if 5... moreIt really sucks that nokia decided to replace 5230 with 5233 in india and 5233 is just little cheaper! that is really bad decision! becouse many ppl now need and wanna have 3g and specialy gps! nokia should keep them both in stores and let ppl chose what they want 5230 or 5233!!

Why don't you ask them if we want GPS what to do then... And tell them if 5233 is a replacement then why is Nokia advertising them both together http://nokia.hummaa.com/?rfr=nokmus1-2-nsd-nok-102?t=5230&ca=5230&lid=music_displayed_5230_5233_teaser_main228x96&lpos=row1_position2
Also I would advice you to contact Nokia care and get info from there. Here http://www.nokia.co.in/get-support-and-software/contact-us/nokia-careline
I visited to Nokia Center on CMH Road in Bangalore. I was told that 5230 model has been replaced by 5233. And that the new model did not have A-GPS and 3G in it !! Go figure !
