Should I buy the Nokia 6230 or Sharp GX 30.I like both but unsure which to choose. The 6230 looks nicer and has a better mp3 player but GX 30 has a great camera and screen,also do both the 6230 and GX 30 come with a USB cable or do i have to buy one.
Charlene and slick, u two are idiots... how can you compare 6230 to that of p800 and p900??? 6230 was meant to be compared with k700 which i believe both (6230 and k700) have evenly matched features.... really stupid of you two... I think you all heads are much bigger than Bighead
i agree with you slick, like the name, abit of big brother influience there
BIG HEAD, literally your head does seem BIG, your a trater, SE p900 let alone mentioning the p800 was the guru of all features in its generation, i see you have converted to the nokia, puh, you suck man and so do your comments
I dont know why people are cussin this handset. How can anyone moan about the features of this phone! If you compare this phone to others of its generation then the features stand up to them if not beat them. the only phone that does is K700 and it doesnt hav mem expansion. i work in a mobile retail outlet and the 6230 is our top seller by far. I love SE and i would never buy any other but even my head started turnin when this phone was released. This phone has one of the most complete packages out at the moment and even though the screen leaves a bit to be desired it still doesnt affect the video too badly. I like this phone a lot but people are bein too badly spoiled and are expectin a bloody home entertainment system in their pocket and expect it to do them a ruddy manicure at the same time! Technology is movin all the time and at the mo this is one of the best. just be happy with what youve got. I WAS LED TO BELIEVE THERE WOULD BE PUNCH AND PIE.
AAC is half the size of MP3, but if you convert from the same original file. Convert to AAC from MP3 is no use
* 2 & jenna
is it true that aac files are half the size of mp3? coz one time i tried to convert mp3 to aac the result size is just around 95% less size of mp3.
I recently picked up a 6230 and as I already have a 6600 and a lot of people wanted to know which to choose here's a few thoughts.
The 6230 is a very good phone with feature set that's hard to beat. It's also quite flawed. The screen is not only small, it's also pretty average in quality. It's perfectly fine for navigating the menus and doing the things a good phone should to, it's cr@p at displaying any kind of detailed images, be they wallpapers or photos. Nokia have made it seem worse by supplying pale, pastel and indistinct wallpapers which makes it seem even more washed out than it is. As screens go, if quality really matters to you the 6230 will leave you feeling short changed.
The keypad, despite the many complaints, is great in my opinion, with one exception. The D-Pad works fine to select a direction but to use it to select by pressing it in the middle is very hit-and-miss. This is made worse by the fact that NOKIA seem to have disabled the left hand soft button as a "select" option, a very strange move.
Build quality is good and the panels fit so well that they're a bitch to remove. Pull on the raised area that the lens sits in to remove the back.
As for the 6600, so far I have found only two real gripes, the time it takes to fire up, hardly a biggie, and it's slightly large size. In just about every respect the 6600 is a vastly superior phone with better screen, better build quality, more flexible operation, some wonderful themes available and some really great games and apps.
I didn't like the pictures of the 6600, I liked it better in the flesh and with every passing day I grow to like it more. I'm no Nokia fanboy, in fact I'm more likely to be considered anti-Nokia, but I think the 6600 will one day be seen as one of Mokia's all-time great phones.
So in short, if you like a good, solid, hard working phone that does it all well, the 6630 is a good choice if you can accept the shortcomings. It probably appeals to the same user that would still rate the 6310i as an all-time great (http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,,133,00.html)
However, if the slightly flabby sides don't turn you cold, and the lack of a built-in radio isn't essential, I have to suggest the 6600 as the better phone every time.
The MMC card does not work at all. I have bought a new card - does not work. Existing card does not work in card reader - pile of poo - not happy.
i just bought this mobile and its the best mobile ever. i totally recommend this phone to anyone. Plus the screen isnt that bad.
This model nokia 6230 is so nice and easy to function... Only if the prices go down, I can buy it... this phone model is just too good...
there is an application that allows you to view HTML pages it's called WebViewer, it runs on a java enabled phone

Hi, im currently shopping around for a phone, im definately getting a nokia but i am trying to decide whether to get a 6230 now, or wait and get the amazing 6630. i cant decide which would be better, i dont like the screen size of the 6230, its really too small i think. Is there anything in the 6230 that is better, or that the 6630 doesnt have?
Ps: would anybody have any idea as to what price the 6630 would be? i presume its gonna be pretty pricey!!!!
Any replies would be appreciated. thanks
