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!!!!!
The 6230 and 7700 are the only good model Nokias since the 7650. 7700 rubbish design but excellent features, the 6230 looks gorgeous and is should probably contend in the smartphone areas. It would probably wipe some of the competition out. These are words coming from a Nokia and Sony Ericsson despiser, lol!
why don't all se fans buy se and nokia fans buy nokia, or don't buy 6230 if don't like the 128x128, buy another phone with bigger screen.
DMX, if you learnt to read you would get my point from my previous messages. I said:
- if you need a bigger screen buy a phone with one, doesn't have to be a Nokia
- I do not PERSONALLY see any need for bigger screen
- I personally like the keypad in 6230. Although the phone is very small it has a good keypad. I think SE keypad often require female size fingers. But that's a matter of taste.
DMX, you asked "why don't u play games etc." with smaller display. Well, I could ask you why don't you write documents with phone keypad instead of computer keyboard. A phone is a phone, not a gaming pad or something else (for me that is). I have used the phone and the display is more than acceptable for me.
God, you SE lovers are such thick skulled people. I keep saying "for MY purposes","buy something else if you need bigger screen" etc. but still you keep yanking your SE mantra. Like you would have some self esteem problems. We are talking about a phone, not the size of your d**k. I don't know, maybe (SE) phones can damage your brain after all. ;)
One major thing I don't like about SE phones are only supported up to 128MB extra storage and also must use their own memory stick.
As using this phone to replace my mp3 player, I need 256MB and build in FM radio.
For the rest, I think SE is good.
Finnished, you're ONLY defending that pethetic small screen ONLY because it ISN'T any bigger...
Why opts for something less when you can get something more?... Besides, large keypad doesn't mean it's easier to use.. You can have small but thick keypad like what the T610 has and it's VERY easy to use as it has substential spacing between keys.
So then, why don't you run games and view pictures on your computer at the res of 640x480 then?
The thing is, while everyone is already at the 128x160 and is moving to the higer res sector (Even the K700 has more pixels than Nokia's Symbian phones), the 6230 is still stuck at 128x128.
Klaas, what do you mean by "it's proven" when writing about MP3 player quality? Is there a international committee judging the players' features? Please, tell me who has "proved" this thing you are referring to. Again...
I have read from several forums that the MP3 and radio quality is excellent. But that's up to our own judgment.
Again about the height of the display. Of course it looks cool to have a big display and you can see more things at once. 6230 is a very small phone when compared to competing phones and still has many unique features. It is very hard to make decent keypad and display to fit into a small case. But honestly, you very rarely need that big display when using this phone. If you need bigger display buy Nokia 6600 or 9210 or a phone from some other manufacturer. Let's see all the things I need when using THIS phone:
1) calling somebody
- no, I do not stare at the display when doing this
2) writing SMS
- Nokia has smaller font which adds several lines when writing SMS
3) listening to radio and MP3 player
- nope, don't need here either
4) taking photos
- width is 128 pixels as in many competitor's phones so it doesn't make a difference
If you get some pixels more in height what's the big deal (other than ego)? The display in 6230 is quite good anyway and I would not pay attention to its size when using the phone.
6230 is the choice, its small but loaded with multimedia,camera,video,games,fm,mp3,mms,gprs,tft colour,ext card,of course sms n phone.SMALL enough to make ur life fun
Just bought this nokia 6230, everything is perfect except the design of the phone not so nice as 6220. The TFT screen really bright and sharp and video recording is 4 minutes per recording, the expandable MMC card is good for storage, in fact can install up to 256MB. I am using the 6600 but the phone cannot receive chinese sms and no radio functions, also video recording only 10 seconds. It's a good buy and nokia can comes out the express better the current one, I think this phone will be a killer or dominant to other phones.
I just bought the phone from the shop. If anyone have any specific question, you may ask me and I will try to find the answer in my phone. :)
Having said that, don't expect too much about the loud speaker's sound quality. It's just not good at all. However, the headset is fine.
And to add to Finnished's comment about screen...
Why are you saying it's no use having height?... is it because your beloveed 6230 doesn't have it? =P...
It's good to have height.... why?...
Look at the T610, while you're doing your normal stuff like java, sms and all, you can still see your battery status and reception.. also, you have more space for the menu option at the bottom.. giving more space for the center!
I just found out something about the K700...
It's mp3 player/radio works like it does on window...
You can have the phoneplay your songs/radio while running on the background at the same time sending a sms or playing games!!..
Hah.. can the 6230 do that?
k700 vs. nokia 6230 vs. sendo x
-k700 only have 14mb for the user not good for mp3 user but the quality and function of the phone is absolutely impressive!
-nokia 6230, great feature but poor quality , good memory storage.
-sendo x, great features and memory storage . i think you guys choose these phone to satisfy all our urges of getting a better phone but SE S700 is the ultimate phone to have.
i tested the phone in the philippines and at first glance the phone looks good but i when try the ff. function:
1. the camera picture is good but the screen is too small to appreciate.
2. the video recording is not good, poor resolution and pixel explode.
3. mp3 and FM radio quality is not as stereo sound as i expected.
4. the quality of the exterior body is not also good..too plastic looking , 6220 is much better looking.
5. i like the phone grid menu and the mmc expansion
5. overall, the features are impressive on small phone but the function and quality is disappointing.
The K700i is not a MP3 player,that is why SE did not implant the MSD slot.
The SE K700i support MP3 file's that will not say it will have good MP3 player like Ipod.
But the MP3 player is very good quality than the 6230,that's proven.
If you read the SE web site on K700 you would know that you cannot use K700 as a decent MP3 player. You can only store 14 MB on the memory! That's like three songs! Unless your favourite band 'NSync doesn't make more hits (which it won't) you'll be okay though..
Ppl, there's no point having more pixels in height as it doesn't make the picture any bigger in most cases. In most phones you cannot turn the phone landscape and take photos or watch something.
6230 is extremely small considering it's features. If you don't believe go to a mobile phone store.
