for last one year i've been using this phone.its body is all plastic.but it's quite drop-proof.i dropped it many times,two times deliberately even to test the durability.absolutely nothing was damaged upto 3 ft drop.now screen durability.many mornings i wake up to find myself(78kg) lying directly on its screen.nothing ever went wrong.screen resolution is 640 by 360.very few lowrange phones offer such great resolution.ringtone loudness and audio playback loudness is very very poor in this phone(though headphone sounds are quite ok with other than the free headphone supplied).battery backup for me is never more than one day per charge since i use internet most of the time.signal reception is quite good.the hardware buttons all work well,only the lockscreen slider is uncomfortable.proximity sensor works very well,so screen light goes off whenever you put phone to your ear during a call.accelerometer also works well to rotate the menu and all except the homescreen.for still photos the 2mpx camera gives superb results compared to other brands.the response time between shutter button press and photocapturing is quite fast.what's best is you'll seldom see any shutter lag(like face is clear but the moving hand is blurred).i mean it takes less time to take a photo.the video capturing is splendid and smooth as it shoots 640 by 480 pix video at 30 frames per second.that means you can view them on tv or pc in full screen and the video is very smooth.the fm radio reception however is not very noisefree always.12 kms away from the fm transmission centre,the phone plays good enough but not totally noisefree.touchscreen response is excellent and effortless.now the browser.its browser works almost as fast as android 2.2 browser in optimus one (i compared both phones side by side with same aircel edge connection).the flash 4.0 enabled browser of 5233 is excellent.regarding browser,much depends on network though.but there is almost no text reflow facility in its browser.so most of the times,you'll have to scrolll sideways too to read a line.the image saving option in browser is hidden deep within options(i.e. Needs several clicks to reach to it).after the firmware update version 50,the browser fails to open images larger than 6 megapixel.till version 40 they could be opened well.now applications.nokia symbian apps are plenty and free.you can view,edit word excel powerpoint slideshows,view pdf files,edit photos,songs,shoot panorama shots,distort lens effects,paint,use photoshop like functions,view weather,read news,even see tv news if network is good.the youtube video streaming also works moderately well.bluetooth works fast.with downloaded applications you can increase number of homescreens too.
One month ago i bought a nokia 5233.one month i heard this loud speaker sound.now loud speaker has no sound.sometimes it's sound has come.after few times its sound had gone.What am i doing.Please help me.

The Nokia 5233 is Nokia's cheapest smartphone.It's price tag is less,when it's compared to the specifications of the phone.The camera's pretty decent,even though it's merely 2MP.The music player's great as well.The best feature is that the 5233 supports lots of 3rd party apps,which is a unique feature for a smartphone priced so low.The network's quiet good and the set is very user friendly.YouTube videos can be streamed and downloaded at ease on the 5233.Besides,it provides widgets and quicklinks to sites like Facebook,Twitter,Friendster,Hi5 etc.All in all it's a cell worth the money.
