Anonymous, 12 Jan 2010as we know it is capable of recording vga videos.can it play videos which have resolution over vga?No it can't. For 5230, video playback file formats:
- MPEG4-SP playback 30fps VGA
- MPEG4-AVC playback 30fps QVGA
- WMV9 playback 30fps QVGA
- MPEG4-SP playback 30 fps nHD
where VGA = 480x640
QVGA = 240x320
nHD = 360x640 (native display resolution)
Video recording has various modes :
- 640 x 480 pixels up to 30 fps (TV high quality)
- 640 x 352 pixels up to 30 fps (widescreen quality)
- 320 x 240 pixels up to 30 fps/15 fps (email high/normal quality)
- 176 x 144 pixels up to 15 fps (sharing quality)

Well I think, Nok5230 would be better than Iphone in terms of reading ... morecomplete regards to you also.
Right price=right feature strategy. well at this price point providing an above average loudspeaker is not obligatory but neccessary. even a 5130 has a loud ringer.

Well I think, Nok5230 would be better than Iphone in terms of reading pdf's. as 16:9 means width more, height less.
And iphone's more or less anamorphic display means, height = width, will squeeze the text resulting is either more eye strain or continuous swiping left and right to read a page.
Well you are right. but as said in my earlier post, i dont feel it being a problem anymore as i think i have tackled the low sound prob. And also Nokia is known for Right price=right feature strategy. So may be this is it. To get something good you need to compromise a bit.
No offense. please dont take otherwise.

iPod Touch has a 3.5" dislay.
Reading on a laptop/netbook on the go is tedious.
What do you suggest? Should I go for 5230 or iPod Touch???

Well ya, thats an issue (somewhat), please go through the comments you will get a fair idea or our opinions and whats the remedy for that!!
somebody are using this hand set,they told that the volumeof the speaker and the headphone is to low.what is your openion?

Yes I charged the cell for 18-20 hours before the first continuous use. 4-5 hours... moreFriends,
Someone was complaining some time back that their is No snooze button for alarms.. I found this funny as i have the snooze as well as stop buttons on screen.
>> Yet here is what I learnt from the Nok5230 Manual. Just flip the phone 180degrees while the alarm is on and the alarm stops automatically... WOW.
Secondly, Its true that the volume of Nok5230 is low. but do you really think its too low?? I am finding the volume and quality of the audio to be very SOOTHING and good.
I think we should not misunderstand a phone with a hi-fi music player.
>> Try using any mp3 as ur ringtone instead of the inbuilt midi's. it would solve your query (till the next firmware upgrade). Even if it doesnot, take a song convert it to mp3, increasing the source mp3's volume (many softs allow you to do this.)
Lastly MOST IMPORTANT, can you please post, how you r cleaning the touchscreen and keeping it clean. It would be a learning for most of us.
> I use the cloth that comes with spectacles to clean the fingerprints and stylus scratches..
Hoping of useful replies.
guyz dis phone is really awesome.. 2mp camera is not so rubbish.. pictures r crystal clear in day time..battery back up is wonderful.. after all 1350maH.. this phone has kinetic scroll as u find in iphone.. cant mention al other features.. advantages really overweigh a lot than a few disadv..
what is the feedback after using the touch screen?will it damage after some months?
Yes I charged the cell for 18-20 hours before the first continuous use. 4-5 hours or 15-20 hours of initial charge all depends on the person who is advising you and the reasons he has to support that.
In a previous reply to @jan, i stated the reasons why longer initial charging is required.
Nevertheless, If anyone has a better explanation please let me know.
The problem is may be due to duplicate entries on your memory card and sim. delete contacts on either one and this should solve ur prob.
[[NOTE: Please be cautious before deleting.]]
Though I didnot test reading pdfs on my 5230. but ya.. reading pdf's on that small (comparatively) screen would be tedious for eyes. and aboout max size of pdf's etc, didnt test till now. will let you know in due time.
I own a black Nok5230. and i must say it looks classy and superb.
Nevertheless, opinion/s may differ.
In which colour does this phone look nice....Black or white......??????
i think the black one looks a little outdated.......and the white one would get dull appearance faster.....
Please let me know......
