I want to say Nokia 5230 doesn't get much power, so we shouldn't thrust much responsibility on it.
I mean what do you expect from a mid segment phone.
Look at what it gives you : An excellent display with good touchscreen, a very capable GPS functionality with voice navigation, a fairly capable (still) camera with good video recording, a very good playback audio quality, smart phone capabilities, motion sensing games etc and all that in a price thats almost a third of Pulse. And it doesn't cut down on other features like HSDPA, 3.5mm audio jack, microSD card expansion, Bluetooth etc.
I agree the browser must have been better but it atleast supports Flash so that is a good thing for such a handset and Symbian means we can use Opera browsers. I think we should go easy with 5230.
i am from india.. my question is in india r they giving stylus for this device. i usually send messages a lot so tht it might b useful to me. plz answer..
Hi,as i said i bought my phone on 7th January 2010 by viewing as many as 20 Reviews and found 5230 is very cheap touch 3G and GSM phone released by Nokia. i thought of buying another phone this month(Feb 1st week) but i cannot get that as many of the retailers are saying Nokia stopped production of 5230 and they are trying to sell 5233. The only main reason behind this is because Nokia 5230 are sold very fast as there are no more pieces available in market and Nokia thought of selling 5233 just for 800rs less than that of 5230. This is because they didnt wanted 5230 to be under production because of its less price which might be a loss for Nokia. Hence they thought to make Nokia 5800 to be sold instead of 5230 and released 5233 discontinuing 5230.
So please try to buy 5230 as soon as possible.
@prsd & Nokia Guy
The phone is verygood in its performance, charging is very fast. u can play games and high defenition videos with 100mb also will play smoothly, i didnt feel any hang, if anybody feeling something like tht, plz reset ur phone, if not, upgrade the OS.. i am facing problem with the slide lock(the phone key and screen lock)
I bought the phone for Rs 8200/- at Savitri Market,sec-18 Noida. I do not think its out of production but its stocks might be dwindling. The retailers who do not have it always tried to sell 5233 by saying that 5230 had 'problems' and Nokia have stopped production.
My advise is to try all the stores you can.

My comments are based on 3 days usage.
Some of my negative comments may be unfair, it may be a problem with vodafone rather than the nokia.
I am comparing it with the t-mobile pulse, which is an android with a capacitive touch screen.
Load quailty audio.
Screen resolution when reviewing photos.
Camera is fine, despite the reviews.
Video recording high quality.
Virtual keyboard very responsive and accurate.
Handwriting recognition is very accurate.
Screen is responsive when choosing icons and menu items.
Built in web browser supports flash lite 3.1 (with upgrade).
Loading web pages using built in browser is slow.(Try loading rp.pl) (Could be Vodafone dropping from 3.5G to 3G to edge).
Google maps also slow to load satellite view and street view.
Font in browser could be nicer looking!
Scrolling a web page after it has fully loaded is crap. On my android it's like driving a luxury car. Here it's like driving a car with four square wooden wheels! (this is what I ment by kinetic scrolling)!
GPS is average. Of my 4 GPS enabled phones, this comes in second place.
can someone pls answer d below mentioned?
1) can you directly save files to d memory card or do u have to keep moving it from the phone?
2) can you upload pics directly to the web like facebook,twitter etc?
Awaitin a quick response on dis?
Hw is touchscreen 4 msgng purpose wl it dissappoint me again i didnt lyk n97 touch ?i mean wl i b able to type with thumbs at speed lyk physical pad widout errors?
this one's my second touchscreen handset , previously i've been using samsung star 3G which turn out to be boring in comparison to nokia5230 especially symbian & ovi store makes it fun to use. However, it's 3G but devoid of video calls, or am i missing something.plz specify if i can enable this feature.
