if mp3 is good, than battery is no problem. i can always have spare one.
rather than carring another mp3 all the time.
Mark LV is right. The camera in the phones nowadays are crap. It includes the coming phone with 1.3 megapixels. However, if you are the one who will not always bring a digital camera along with you wherever you are, the phone camera function would really be very useful when you suddenly want to take a snapshot on the street.
So for phone camera function, I will also traeat it as a secondary function.
for 6230i, will the Nokia make such a phone? I hope so but I doubt that as 3G is on the go, as well as symbian OS is getting more popular. I heard from the other forum said 6230 will be the last series40 phone.
The trend for Nokia phone will be a multi-media phone, and so possibly including mp3 player, FM radio, media player, video recorder.
The main concern for this phone is the battery. it really won't last long if you make full use of this phone.
More precisely, I am complaining about the battery.
Lots of hot air here........
This isn't a perfect phone, but which one is? What some people don't understand is that phone cameras are still in the 'stone age' technologically. The issues is not so much one of resolution, as the fact that the focus is fixed, so pictures always come out rather fuzzy. Proper autofocus cameras are difficult to minuaturize, although Sharp seem to have produced one such device for the Japanese market. The next step will be to introduce optical zooms, which is even more awkward.
In anycase, in my opinion, the camera functionality, though useful, is only a secondary feature. The MP3 and radio is more interesting to me.
My wish list for a 6230i:
1) XGA or 1MP camera - ideally with autofocus.
2) Video recording limited only by memory.
2) Medium wave radio.
3) Larger screen. Ideally with 262K colours.
To nepllica, mp3 player's quality is reasonablely acceptable. However the trade off is, it would really drains out the battery. So if you intends to use 6230 to replace your current mp3 player. It would not be wise to do that.
For your reference, if you play mp3 often with this phone, as well as some phone calls, the battery would only last for 2 days.
going to buy this phone
only if mp3 is good enough.
i know other feature's r great. i really dont't need big sreen n carmera fuction, coz i won't be using that much. if i want big screen n good can , may be i will consider GX30/32, not SE thanx. but i heard that gx 32's mp3 player n sound quality is crap.
can somebody advise me how goood is mp3?
and is the stereo headset come with standard packages? if not is it easy to get one?
I've bought my 6230-silver yesterday. Sold my 8910i-black. I've read every document in every forum and review.
This phone is GREAT !!! it has everything. I'm sure most of you will love it by all means. Pls dont listen SE fanatics. They have nothing but P900. ;)
To Fared, I have no problem to 'paired" Nokia 6230 with P900. It can detect P900 at the phone shop.
if you suspect the phone got something wrong, bring back to the phone shop and check it. i am sure they are happy to assist you.
Generally a great phone but one thing really annoys me. I can send pictures using Bluetooth from my SE P800 to the 6230, no problems. But I cannot seem to send anything to the P800 using Bluetooth. The 6230 cannot even detect the P800 as a Bluetooth device. I find it strange that I can receive data from the P800 but I cannot send any. Has anybody encountered this problem before?
Hi, N6230's users, pls. kindly advice: can the bluetooth apply to IPAQ 2210, since I need it for modem. Thanks for advice & Peacccccccccccceeee!
ha! me was just kidding you stupid. In fact, i very happy with my nokia.
had my fun here with you fan boys though!
6230 is great IMO and i have so i can actually claim it
i just don't understand how some people will say that k700 is better than the 6230 when they have not even seen nor touch an actual production unit of k700, make your call when you have see both phones...
i am not saying k700 is better, nor i am saying the 6230 is the best... i say the 6230 is great, and i will wait for the k700 when it comes out, and i will make my judgement at that time
O btw...It is used to check the warranty, purchase date, repaired date, number of hours the phone had been switched on and manufactured date. So to all nokia fans out there. Pls punch in those codes to check the above details b4 buying! No regrets. Peace ppl!! ^_^
Wo ho. Got it last friday. It is a good friday for purchasing a good phone. No regrets. It is fun and promising. It is just the screen is smaller than the rest. The battery life last me 2.5 days and I felt totally handicapped by it. No worries mates. Bought a second battery for more lasting FUN. So now at least I know, my phone can give me "unlimited" fun with all the multimedia functions for 5 full days ahead!!! Try this out to check the phone if it is 2nd hand. I know alot of shops selling some crap phones. So ppl this codes are released for your own safety against those freaks. *#92702689#
Just buy another battery to stand by, not a problem at all. Be more positive and you will be happy and God bless u.
another new bug found,
If you put the MMC card, the stnadby time will drop less than a week. If you play mp3, the battery will only last for less than 3 days.
However, if no MMC card inserted. The phone will last for less than 2 weeks.
I just sold my 6600 and bought this 6230 not even consider any brand including Sonyercisson but no regrets. Wow, this 6230 really blow me up and I just love it. What a good phone not surprisingly!
come on people, stop bothering Klass, I think, none of the phones in this world are perfect. It apply to N6230 too!
Klass just like SonyEricsson phone but it does not mean SonyEricsson phone is better than Nokia. And it would be the same for Nokia phone may not be better than SonyEricsson phone too!
Klass entitle his opinion but if the way Klass express it by stepping down the Nokia Phone, it is not acceptable. On thr other hand, if Nokia fans want to praise their nokia phone by stepping down the SonyEricsson phones, it is not appropiate too!.
Watch out, the bugs in Nokia 6230 start appearing. I think people in this forum are more welcome to share their experience on this N6230. It would really be appreciated it they can inform us if they found out the bugs in this phone.
At last, Klass, don't bother the people who said something bad on you as they are just kids. This forum never stop kids entering here.
Having said that, Klass's opinion will be welcome if he just only say the facts without praising SonyEricsson phone and stepping down the Nokia phone.
