I'm currently using 6310i which has been perfect to me in every single way, it never failed once. I carry my digital camera with me, so having the poor one in mobile phone would be stupid. Since I have to give this phone away, I'm looking for the new one, the same fast and reliable. Is 6230 the right choice ? Yes, I did go through all other manufacturer phones, but I am still Nokia fan, please tell me this is THE phone, in all other Nokia phones something is missing, damn !
I have never used P900 but I can say that MP3 quality is excellent in 6230. Hifi stuff is my hobby so I know good sound quality.
Of course the speaker sound quality isn't perfect. It's not possible to stuff perfect speakers into a mobile phone case, there's not enough room. However I would say that the speaker in 6230 does the job as well as it can be done by a mobile phone.
Bad screen? Is it really BAAAAD?? Klaas, your judgment is as good as your English. Come on, you must be joking. It's very good for the size of the phone. If some other brand and make has better screen, good for them, but you cannot seriously say the screen is bad.
I got mine for under 400 euros (Finland). P900 costs twice as much. Still got something to say about the price, Klaas?
The build quality is one of the best I have ever seen in Nokia phones. The cover does not move a bit or make any sound when using it. The keypad is the best I have ever used. It's got big keys and must feel good for everyone wanting to type without problems. It definitely does not feel cheap plastic. I would rather say it looks and feels classic.
Menu and the interface are solid Nokia quality. Everything is logical and easy to find, and it works quickly. Appreciation for that can be seen in Nokia market share, Klaas = 40 %.
P900 only support 128MB memory stick but Nokia 6230 support 256MB MMC. In this aspect, Nokia 6230 wins.
For me, an mp3 player only have 128MB, which is probably not enough for me.
Furthermore, P900 does not have built-in FM radio.
Yes ur opinions are valid too, but really if ur in a gym and are wanting to run and listen to music would u have it on loud speaker- em no, secondly i would not use a cd player as u have to pay for the music where in 3 mins i can send a song to my phone via blue tooth from my laptop, in additon u may be right that the p900 is beter quality but look at the bulkiness of the motherfucka, i enjoy a light run not 5 tons drooping in my pocket just to listen to a few tunes !!! price - what u talking about i forget ho wcheap the p900 really is the guy only offered me it for £300 on a contract - fuck sake i got my 6230 for free and could buy it sim free cheaper than a contract p900, i do admit the p900 and SE are great phones but currently i ahvent felt or used a nicer phone, its small cheerful, packed full of features all be it they are not amazingly good but ur forgetting its a phone as long as its GOOD im happy- in relation to its size id say they match the p900, affordable, clasy, unique, good features- u cant argue klass
I have respect for you opinion,but do you not exaggerate a little bit?
The MP3 quality of the 6230 is not good compared with the P900,yes I know it's belong a another segment but both play's MP3 file's.No excuses please.
Set him only once via the speakerphone then you will well certain brands what I mean and It is nornaal that via the headphones reasonably good is, but not super good as the P900.
I complain gather round the MP3 quality, bad screen&menu and interface, price, and the building quality falls me dirty against, feels as cheap plastic.
I just got this phone and after using it for a while I can say...
I am particularly amazed and speechless about the MP3 quality from the headphones. It's perfect. Klaas & Co, don't bother complaining about this, I have read mobile phone magazine reviewers and other users to say the same.
The display and graphics are also quite good, I wouldn't call the display small at all.
The camera has very good quality - for VGA pics. We are all waiting for 1 MP cameras but meanwhile this will do the job.
I cannot understand why some ppl just complain about this phone. Or I do, they have not even used it and want to promote other brands. Yes, you know who I am talking about. I would understand comments saying that "I do not like this particular feature etc." but totally flaming the phone is just idiotic. Punkt slut.
Gee...you people from SE are really crazy, the rating of this phone drops dramatically in the last few days. There were only just additional 200~300 votes but the average rating of the phone has droped from 8.66 to around 8.54, that means most of the votes from the previous couple of days are all 1,1,1 votes. You guys from SE are just sick, you have got nothing better to do? By the way, 200~300 in 3days could be done by only 10ppl, the voting system refreshes the IP tracking like 1~2hrs a time.
I have just received my phone and I have to agree the this is the mutts nuts, small, stylish, features rock everythings fast and easy to use, just wait for my 256mb card and i'm sorted. Well done nokia bods
Bought the phone yesterday in the uk.
i bought it based on the rating hear and the reviews, it was free on contract- 02 but the guy told me they will be£500 sim free.
I shall tell u now this phone is the daddy, it works really well, bluetooth is awesome, i have a apple laptop and i can send my mp3s via bluetooth to the phone and then set them as my ringtone, it sounds and looks the Business,
Other small features are cool too, changing the menu system from the normal nokia to a grid one- freedom of choice is good, everything about this phone oozes quality, the nite mode camera is soo good, anyway i cant say much more than ignore the reviews that slate this phone, i now own this phone and definetly prowd of it
Can I use Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Headset HBH65 with Nokia 6230?
i haven't own the phone. i heard that the mp3 sound is mono, is it true?
and can does the phone support video streaming?
it will be just someone else
(typing mistakes previously)
The real Calvin are very pleased with N6230. From now on, he will not use this name anymore.
So if any "Calvin" comes up later in this forum, it will not be just someone else.
I think there is a stupid idiot who like to use other's Name to express his own idea.
Please be careful.
I want to tell you about losers.
Not everybody has good opinions and experience with the 6230, as men like you that not against criticism then must they self once good look at to self before you them cal losers.
Childish of you.
nokia has cable connector that you need to buy it is not included in the package although if you have infra-red in your computer you can transfer files etc...also you can send default ringtones to other compatible phones.
pearl white color is much better looking than black....does the phone support wav files???
