SH, 19 Jan 2010Hello everyone ...i got nokia 5230 and its been 5 days..overall experience has been very good... moreTo stop the Nokia 5800/5230/5233 alarm clock when the screen is locked, you need to slide the STOP bar, shown on the touchscreen, from left to right; to snooze the alarm clock, slide the SNOOZE bar from right to left instead.

the map loader software for your PC.
"Map Loader lets you manage the Ovi Maps application on your mobile via your computer. Download and install Map Loader to your compatible computer to add and update the maps and navigator voices you need".
They are not providing the usb cable.
look is gud.
when u transfer data from bluetooth is stores in the mobile msg memore rather then in the memory card.
u have to again and again transfer it to the memory card.
camera is gud its 2M .
no sound key in the head set.
Is 5230 still available or it has really been replaced by 5233. Hd approached 2 dealers y'day & both hd told me tht 5230 is nt in stock bcz NOKIA has stopped its production. I doubt this as NOKIA is nt famous fr discontinuing its models in just first couple of mnths of their launch. If its still available thn plz lemme knw the place in Delhi & NCR frm where I cn get it. Thnx a lot in advance.
Janani, 05 Feb 2010This is the waste mobile set.Wht so? Reasons plzzzzzzz....
HI, I BOUGHT IT FOR RS.8100 (DELHI PRICE) HERE ARE FEW PROS & CONS OF THE SAME
1. Very good large screen, good for watching movies
2. Sound in headset is very good, loud & clear (used Sony headset).
3. Camera is average, only good for outdoors.
4. GPS speed is good with voice navigation.
5. Very fast processing speed in Galary or navigating files.
6. Kinetic scrolling is awesome.
7. Batter life is good. with average use it goes for 3 days.
1. Very low loudspeaker volume.
2. Touch response is not amongst best. May be nokia will improve with firmware update.
3. Very poor sunlight visibility.
4. late response of Accelorometer sensor.
OVERALL I GIVE 7 OUT TO 10
CONSIDERING THE PRICE RANGE 5230 IS WORTH BUY, MUCH BETTER THAN SAMSUNG STAR & LG COOKIE.
GO AND GET IT, YOU WONT REGRET.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970he bought it from chennai for just Rs 7400 but me bought it for only Rs7200 from Ludhiana city of Punjab state, India. And yes, our phones r Nokia 5233 not Nokia 5230. 5233 is without 3g and gpd but 5230 is with both, it will be expensive than 5233 around Rs 8100.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970ONE OF THE "Posting rules" : Read before you post. Search before you post. There is a big chance that your question is already answered
search for "Samsung Star" on the forum search above. Nonetheless, there was a comparison made before that I'm copying here. Read
Comparison between 5230 and Samsung Star
First lets see the positives of Star
- Dimension : looks more pocketable cause its shorter and thinner. Also little less heavier.
- Camera. It has 3.15 MPx camera against 5230's 2 MPx
- Comes with a document viewer. This is insignificant b'cause you can easily get a software for 5230.
Positives of 5230
- Screen is bigger and better. It is 3.2" against Star's 3". Also it is more pixel dense with more resolution than Star's. And not to mention it is 16:9 so full screen viewing is possible without black bars.
- 3.5 mm Audio Jack. Star doesn't has it. Its a major difference b'cause you can buy top of the line headsets (like Seinheisser or Bose etc.) from outside and use it directly.
- Little more internal memory. Its actually insignificant but it still is a difference.
- It has 3G. Star doesn't. Probably it is not that important b'cause 3G is not commonly used in India but atleast it will be ready once 3G race begins (in India).
- Lower resolution camera but better video recording resolution than Star.
- Symbian S60 Thus access to softwares that for me is a downright necessity in any phone. A non smart has to be checked for its features and what it "can do" before buying, but for a smart phone you just look at the hardware and buy it because the softwares can be downloaded easily. And its Symbian.
- It has GPS. So you can trace your journey, find direction. You can actually use your phone as a navigator with the built-in Nokia (Ovi) maps.
- Better battery.
- Another positive is that it support express-on battery covers. Not that important but still a nice additional advantage of owning 5230.
So unless camera is your only priority, go for 5230.
