Hello!I need some help. Please, does somebody know if the 6230 has Real One Player or Package Video Program. i know it has audio and video streaming technology but i really need to know if the 6230 has one of those players because that would allow me to watch Tv on my cellphone.Please Nokia people contact me as soon as possible coz i wanna buy this phone. Thanks
the 6230 is an very bad phone. its a little boy who thinks he's grown up.
there are complains everywhere.
and just to think about the small screen is enough to see that nokia is exploiding there custumors.
phone pimp: what good is watching an episode of the simpsons on the small screen of the 6230? ha memory enough but screen space short. come back when your grown up
it must be the forum editor. copy the link, remove the space between "en" and "." so it should be en.shtml
@unknown: maybe its the radio that drains power then? Also it is a good idea to completely discharge and then fully recharge the battery a few times at first use. Even tho its Li-Ion :)
I listened to mp3 for about 3-4 hours, made SOME phone calls (not much) and played some games. its got 2 stripes left, 3.5 days and counting...
@Domino thats exciting news... and shitty :( bigger screen AND 1 megapixel camera!!! Dammit
anyway the link should be
Then again there will be newer and cooler phones coming out all the time... thats just how it goes isnt it
thats also why i have a one-year abonnement only, so in a year i'll go for a cooler phone again :) (one with a 2 megapixel optical zoom camera :) )
to Sufer - updated version of Series 40 platform.. NO its not using symbian o.s
thanx. another question do you know what O.S. is n6230 using, i've read some articles they say this is series 40 and not using symbian o.s. do you know any software that i can install here? thanx a lot jenna.
to Nail - r u talking about 3-4 days standby here? My 1 lasts only 2 days max. listening to MP3 30 mins , radio 4-5 hours, Bluetooth 5-10 mins, calls 5 mins or so... i find the battery life to be weak in this phone.
to Eric- why do u think fone companies spend so much on R&D trying to improve the cameras on there phones when there r soo many digital cameras. stupid f**k.. :S
New Nokia 6230i with NO bugs and BIG screen
Now you can hate Nokia for selling unfinished phones or love it for improving their phones. As i still didn't buy the 6230,I think i will wait for the improved one.
OK first thing to mention...
I bought a 512 MB TakeMS MMC card to go with it, the Nokia sees it as 80,2 MB but that is no problem, all files on the card (currently I have about 300 megs on it) are read without problems.
OK I'll now type some stuff that comes to mind here, maybe its some help to somebody.
I suppose the looks are nothing more than that... looks... I personally think its design is way cool... one of the nicest designs around, I like it a lot. Its not bulky at all in my experience, how can a phone this size with all these options still be considered bulky! :)
Anyway. Here's some more other experiences:
--SOUND: radio/mp3,aac etc: through the headphones: pretty decent! And I mean DECENT; I'm used to an Ipod. Too bad its not possible to use own headset without braking something open. But standard Nokia headset quality is quite bearable, base and treble are absolutely present.
Equalizer option doesnt do much tho, but again it might be the headset that is the limiting (but not disturbingly so) factor.
Reception quality: pretty ok. I must say my 6150 did sound a bit better... ?
-- handsfree sound: awesome! I could easily hold a conversation with some noise in the background, while the phone was laying backside down on the table and switched to speaker.
-- BATTERY LIFE:
Considering the many options this phone has to offer, battery life is pretty decent. I can do about 3-4 days with a full charge, including occasional conversation and listening to mp3s for a few hours. Right now I've been listening to mp3s for the last 3 hours, and the battery indicator is still at the same level (stripe 3 - halfway). I last charged it Monday morning, its Thursday morning now.
CAMERA: didnt test its quality yet but have been reading its one of the better VGA cameras on phones available currently.
nice, intuitive. media player might have had a bit more options like rew, FF, etc...
Theres a "favourites" key top left on the keyboard that functions as a shortcut menu button, pretty nice.
Calendar options are pretty nice too. Many options.
- main cursor key is a bit wobbly and sometimes you end up browsing "up" or "down" instead of selecting an item (by applying downwards pressure), but you'll get over that. Its not too much of an issue. Over all I think the keyboard layout is pretty OK, given the fact that the key rows differ slightly in height which is a good compensation for their small size to me.
Over all... I LOVE THIS PHONE!!!!
Don't purchase phone in UK. Almost phone will be network locked. Its useless.
