Hi there. I have just purchased this and I would like to say that it's not as good as everyone says it is. It's just an overhyped model. I just got it yesterday because I read this forum mentionin how good this phone was and how some people said SE phones are crap and how the screen and all are alright such as Finnish.
First, I would like to say. IF YOU HAVE NOT TRIED THIS PHONE, PLEASE DO NOT SAY IT IS VERY GOOD AND ALL THOSE SHIT LOADS OF CRAP.
It is only average. Screen is too tiny! It looks like crap next to my friend's Z600 which is very emberassing as the Z600 is such an old phone! Functions are ok only. Nothing 'fantastic' and the menu looks exactly the same as my old phone 6610! Except for icon. Again, looking at my friend's Z600, her menu looks so nice. While mine is animated, the colours in the Z600 are better.
Function is only so so. MMS has limits again and is not as good as SE phones.
I am very dissapointed with all those people saying this phone very good.
Does the phone comes in the Graphite cover in Singapore? All i see was the silver version... which doesn't look that great. Do u all have any idea how i can get the Graphite cover?
Klaas, don't compare 7250 with this 6230. It's totally a different phone, do you know that 6230 may not be so nice in looking but all the functions are superb. Camera tsking, video recording, sms, java games, radio, plus so many things-whats there to complain anymore. This 6230 is just like 6600 and in fact is much better in term of size and more functions. Regards.
After reading some of the opinion, maybe sonyericsson k700 and nokia 6230 are comparable good one thing for sure the sms in nokia is always more user friendly. Till today, I can't find any brand that the sms can do better or more user friendly than nokia. For me, I either buy nokia or sonyericsson phones but not motorola, siemens, samsung, etc... Thanks for reading and have a nice day. Take Care!!!
I would not say to hard if I you,because it happened also with the 7250.
Sorry Nokia fans.
all i can say about the nokia 6230 is thats a phone with a class of its own. i can only imagine the problems of sonyericsson incorparating an internal radio into a phone. then theres the menu same old icons same old system, at least with the 6230 you can change from list to grid and then set the colour of the menu aswell. and i question the actual memory of the k700, 32mb yeh right how much after the operating system, preloaded stuff e.t.c. you sonyericsson fans go on like the k700 is the phone that will kill the 6230, all i can say is that the 6230 is out now, the k700 is out next month for sure so who will get the market share???? nokia of course as allways sometimes i feel really sorry for u sonyericsson fans.
p.s any questions about this fone dont hesitate to ask! thanks and glad i got that off my chest!
Who gives a sh*t bout Scandanavian coutrys! Wer here 2 talk about phones, Gro up and get MSN if ur looking for chat!!!!! The fact of the matter is that Nokia is the leader in mobile phone technology and has been for a long damn time, that shows who the public prefer!!!
Well, that's interesting 'cause in one of your messages you just suddenly started to praise how great land Sweden is. I didn't really get the point then for doing that, except being overly patriotic. Either way you must be from Denmark (or Norway) then.
This is the perfect phone.I didn`t have a phone to be as good as this one.It has all the features that can exist.No other brand has a phone to compare it whit this phone.This is the best.
Klaas, what the heck... Is that some sort of a jedi language or what? I'm puzzled. Please stay on Swedish forums, I know there are many of them, like at the pricerunner.se. We can continue our debate there. In Swedish.
You do not let make wise through other forums, for they give your wrong information about the device.
The MP3 player is not of high quality, that garbage of others must you do not believe. I say yourself only that the 6230 reasonable MP3 quality has, but not high what one maintained.
I know that the 6230 small apparatus am, but the K700i is a little smaller and better panel, that know I certainly than I good compares.
One says that the K700i many time better MP3 quality has also for the radio.
What I can say is that you better self can judge what you find out.
can u use mp3s as ringtones? anyone want to enlighten me, im thinking of buying this asap.
After reading all previous comments. I am thinking that SE ppl sucks. This forum is not healthy at all. All kinds of ppl poping in here to write rubbish where this page is
"Nokia 6230 - User opinions and reviews"
So if u have questions u ask. If you had not used the phones yet, don't write stupid comments. This page is only for Nokia 6230. Read the heading of this page properly dumb dumb SE ppl. COMMENTS AND REVIEWS....means reviews...don't u all understand what is reviews? Help those who want to buy N6230 and SE ppl get lost if u wanna find trouble here.
Im planning to buy the 6230, but my problem is that I need loads of memory for my contacts/address book.. Can some 6230 user could tell me whether I can store my phonebook on the MMC?? Or is the phone book limited to 1000 names shown on the data sheet. I basically want to dispose my PDA and want to rely on the 6230 alone for the purpose. I have loads of contacts data and Im currently using 6100 which gives me only 300 names on the phone (which is 100% used) and 250 names on my sim.
Although the screen is slightly smaller but it has the 640X480 pixels camera picture, when you download the picture to PC and it's nice and big in size. This phone really really good, why bother others who critise this model if they don't like. Just ask yourself, which phone in the market has all the functions-radio, 65K TFT, Chinese, video recording, small in size, changable covers, dictionary, chinese calendar, java games, expandable mmc slot, handsfree loudspeaker, world time, can create different folders in sms, tough and user user friendly, good resale values, infrared, bluetooth, voice recorder, many many more. What are you all still waiting for, go for the best and get the best. Cheers to the New Mighty 6230!!!!!
