guy instead of going for 5233 pls go for 5230 ,it is excellent phone with 3g.5230 is good value for money
SidewindeR, 20 Sep 2010Yes.. maps is optional in 5233. It does however work in offline mode too if you have all the m... more1)But i have realized nokia firmware v21 is not preloaded wid nokia maps on d main menu unlike v.12.so if we download manually,is der a way 2 add d application shortcut in d main menu?
2)so concludin line for file allocation,is 32kb gud or is it 64kb?wid rgd to class 2 transcend 2gb card?

Hi 5233 buddies,
I have a querry for my 5233. I purchased my 5233 4 months back, recently i noted that while playing games or browsing for 10-20 mins. the back cover and the screen becomes somewhat warm. Is it normal for the phone or its a problem? Please reply soon....
hi frnds plz dont buy this just bcz hvng :-
1-no call record
3-low voice out put
4-low quality touch
5-not good battery backup
6-if u want to change song through handsfree it is not possible to change the song
7- after attaching the jack for loud speaker output is low.
Actually,I even found a way to install windows 3
(i.e.win 95) on nokia 5233........................
not flash windows 95 but real windows 95..........
using dosbox and other applications.....
check it out...............
if somehow i can run android emulator for windows on it would be gr8........
you can even play good old dos games on it..........

utk, 21 Sep 2010I know that. I said that in context to the reading speed required to play high quality videos.... moreAs far as i know nokia 5233 and nokia 5228 are the same. The number 5228 was given so that people don't get the idea that nokia 5233 has got more features than nokia 5230.
Since you have got a laptop with high speed internet, i guess you don't need 3g. So taking nokia 5233 would be beneficial. And you must not forget the fact that nokia 5233 has got the coolest modified firmware among other s60v5.
SidewindeR, 21 Sep 2010Ok that wold mean a faster read speed as well right?First i would like to tell you that utk and i are friends since quite a long time (through gmail). I asked the exact same question as yours to him a few months back and he gave me a very clear concept. Now instead of saying what he told me, i will explain it through my understanding using an example.
Lets say that you have 2 houses (of same size) and one of them has 10 rooms (rooms are small) and the other has 5 rooms (rooms are comparatively bigger). Lets say there is one tv in each house (lets say you don't know how many). Now, if you were asked to find the tv in the 10 room house then you will have no choice but to search all the 10 rooms to be sure that you get the tv as well as to be sure that there is no other tv in the house. On the other hand, if you were asked to do the same in the 5 room house, you would definately need lesser time to finish searching than the one with 10 rooms.
File allocation is the same thing as rooms. Lesser the file allocation size, lesser the size of the rooms hence more the number of rooms hence more the required time. A mobile while searching for gallery files, has to search all the 'rooms' in the memory card so that it finds all the files. So its obvious that if the phone had lesser 'rooms' to search then it would have had finished the searching in lesser time. So if you increase the file allocation size twice then the number of 'rooms' will decrease to half and hence the phone will finish searching the files in about half the time.
You have to add a little of your existing concept into this to fully understand the topic. Hope you understand what i just wrote.
utk, 21 Sep 2010Technically a larger allocation unit size means faster speeds.Ok that wold mean a faster read speed as well right?

Anyways going to buy 5233 or 5230 or 5228(If available here) today for my mother(in other words for me..lol).
Wow... Thank u guys for enlightning me on that issue. I guess I can confidently go on and reconvert my Avatar BRrip to 2mbps and see what happens. And one more thing you experts. Does the allocation size of a memory card have anything to do with the phone's overall performance. It's because just the other day, i found out that by default the phone quick formats my 8Gb card with FAt32 file system and 32kb allocation unit size. I read that higher allocation unit size would speed up transfer rates and makes the card much faster but the negative side being wastage of space. Anyway I full formated my card on PC using 64kb as the default allocation size. and also reflashed my phone's firmware. After that I transferred the same files and reinstalled all the necessary softwares. But to my surprise, now the gallery has become blazingly fast. i have about 700 3.2mp images (which i too for my college tour with my friend's n73) and before formatting, it took me ages to get the gallery opened. But now everything is much much faster.
I'm not sure if it is the new allocation size or because I reflashed my firmware. Any guess guys? Also before doing the format I thought that the loss of space would be too much if I used 64kb but to my surprise, the only loss with almost a full 8GB card with mostly mp3's and videos and a few apps is like 80MB which is quite acceptable for me considering it's only 1% of wasted space.
utk, 21 Sep 2010For class 6 the given 6 MBps is not the average data transfer rate, its the average write spee... moreMemory card is benchmarked not by the reading capabilities but by the writing. Then only an end user would be sure that his device would find no problems in writing datas in time constrained situations for eg, writing raw video data into the memory card while newer video data is getting piled up to be written. If this flow is restrained then either the camera or the device will crash. I already know that a class 2 memory card can give a read speed of upto 3-4MBps. I was just clarifying his misunderstandings about the video bitrate to data transfer interrelations. I was hoping to get a part of other's understanding for eg, you, on my opinion. Do you agree to what i said earlier. Come on man. This is how people share their discoveries. Cheers.
