Hmmmmmmmm gain some knowledge bro
instead of buying this put few more dollars and get 5800 navigation or music edition becoz specs are satisfactory. its just my opinion.
Just be dont sure to buy 5230 or 5530 because 5800 is still the king... and its just near the price of the lower one... not exceeding 100 dollars.. so if i were you... ill still buy 5800 :D

Ra0, 14 Oct 2009Really a gd phone.s60v5 is very gd as millions of software r available online. Can anyone plz ... moreForget about 'millions of software'!
It's more like a couple of hundred apps :-(
(for the S60v5 that is)
Don't forget most S60v3 sw won't work properly as you don't have hardware keys ;-)
** Nokia has pushed the release date to January 2010 on cristmas eve.
** Price is 10000 rs/150 euro.(before tax).
** it has better touch response with Kinetic scrolling,so u can scroll down without touching the side scroll bar.
** amazing display with 16M Colour.
**slightly bulky,but itz helpful for grab the device and touch the display.
** slightly Slower than 5800xm,but u can't distinguish hardly.
** Has 3G option But no video call.
....Nokia 5230 is the best phone with lotz of good features at such a less price if u sacrifice about 2 mp fixed focus camera and no memory card included.
I am waiting for 5230..love you nokia
In our quest to find the best phone, we forget that branding is very important for corporates. So if SE comes out with a cybershot phone, one can expect it to be a phone with good camera performance. Nokia has very painstakingly improved music playback capability with its XpressMusic brand which today equals the iPod. Samsung or LG doesnt care about branding their phone and expects their phones to sell on factors like youth appeal, external design, contrasting colours etc.. Nokia phones have build quality and performance on their side.
Ravi, 17 Oct 2009Samsung S5600 or well known as Star 3G is far better than 5230.At a price equal to 5230 it pro... moreTalking about features, do you realise that as against Samsung Star, Nokia 5230 is a Symbian series 60 v.5 smartphone. Thus you get access to far more softwares compared to Star on which you have the option of JAVA applications only.
Samsung S5600 or well known as Star 3G is far better than 5230.At a price equal to 5230 it provides 3.15 MP camera with flash,secondary camera,Gesture control,compact design and a fabulous touchscreen.On the other hand 5230 has only basic 2MP Camera neither having flash nor face detection and smileshot.It is also very bulky.So choice is yours.Dont go for name,go for features
akhil, 14 Oct 2009ya yu can say samsung has posed some competition but nokia is king.........yu are talking abou... moreNo,when YOU talk of samsung star any nokia touchscreen phone is not in the race.nokia 5230 2MP camera STAr has 3.2 MP
prem, 17 Oct 2009I want to know about audio sound quality between mx5800 and 5230.which is better in audio soun... moreWell 5800 is Express Music while 5230 is not so the sound quality is way better in 5800 then the 5230.
Its Design looks great but looking at the price(only 150 EURO), there is a little bit confusion about its performance.
I want to know about audio sound quality between mx5800 and 5230.which is better in audio sound quality?
ss, 16 Oct 20095230 is indeed Xmusic, check nokia site lol..hehehe
not at all man i jus checked.
provide the link in case u got any...lol
this phone got just what I need. but why there's no release date yet?! 4Q is not enough,I want the date and i cant wait aymore! tell me when i'm getting this in nokia store?!?!
5230 is more like a smartfone with features like A-GPS and the S60 which is the best OS used for running advanced applications
You get spectacular music features.
Samsung Star is a good multimedia phone with a joyful touchscreen, useful widgets and nice camera.
So these two phones are different and both are worth buying as they are good in their own terms
