avra, 14 Jan 2010hey guyz.i wanna buy n 5230.i've heard dat music player nd volume is nt gd.both in speaker nd ... moreAbout "music player and volume is not good"
Music player has two aspects : UI and Output
- UI of 5230 is fairly good looking with album art and necessary controls ( check this snapshot of music player : http://www.gsmarena.com/showpic.php3?sImg=reviewsimg/nokia-5530-xpressmusic/sshot/gsmarena_054.jpg ). So UI is good
- Audio output : Audio output quality is "perfect" even better than 5800 XM. You can check the 5230 review pg 6 for details.( Here's the link : http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_5230-review-427p6.php )
- Volume (both in speaker and headphone)
Speaker of 5230 is mono. The sound is not crystal clear and also not very loud but it is average sounding.
The provided one is an average one. You can't expect more from a sub-9000 phone. But if you buy some other headsets the sound quality will be top notch depending on the headset you buy. Volume is loud enough.
Verdict : music player : very good, volume is average.
And about 5230, Its not yet released anywhere in the world. Difference is that 5235 has been branded with "comes with music". Read about it here : http://www.gsmarena.com/calling_music_fans_nokia_5235_comes_with_music_announced-news-1320.php .

It seems this phone has been paced as a multimedia (music,video) and Social networking phone.

Hi i got my 5230 a week back and yes it has a place for stylus just like 5800 and they also provided me strip stylus instead of extra back pack. I bought it for around 8300 from Hyderabad, INDIA. The camera quality at night is far better than 5800. trust me.

Enrico, 13 Jan 2010@ Nikhil Cheers. How much is the Nokia 5530 priced at( in mumbai)?@ Enrico dont have an idea about Nokia 5530.
Enrico, 13 Jan 2010Would you know the retail street price as of 13th Jan, 2010?@ Enrico
It depends on where you are located. In BANGALORE/CHENNAI its around RS 8200/-, In Mumbai its Rs 8900/-(price here is highest due to higher taxes).
SUGAN, 13 Jan 2010hi does this phone comes with a pen stylus in india or just the plectrum is provided with the ... more@ Sugan
Nokia 5230 has normal stylus as well as plectrum one.
This phone is worth a buy if you are considering buying a touch screen phone and if you are on a budget of around RS 8000-9000/- also if you have shortlisted 3 Touchscreen cellphones Nokia 5230, Samsung Star, LG Cookie,(these 2 are direct competitors of 5230 offering similar features but Nokia 5230 is offering more at its price only drawback is no memory card/data cable.
@ Debaroon G.
Well you can use a cleaning cloth(similar to one you use for cleaning Spectacles). use more of your fingers than the stylus as it tends to scratch the scratch guard(mine got a bit of scratches). Clean it regularly as it picks up finger prints very quickly.
Do let me know if you know of any scratch guard that offers better protection.
