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.
lalalalal while this stupid phoe costs $500 and comes with 32mb and you want to upgrade mroe memory will be another $50 for 128 or something and will be $550 while the k700 only $350 but has everything the 6230 has plus more with munch better screen which higher res than the 7610, nicer menu and all. only down memory, but 32mb is good enough!
stupid people go buy expensive nokia for only memory when got much cheaper alternative which is better in everything except memory!
Yeah... a phone which supports 'video' and all on a 128x128 screen.. how stupid...
to Unhappy 6230 buyer :-
i think u say shit man and i think u never even saw the 6230...... u r just another se gay lover who wants to make nokia looks bad....
the phone sound quality is great not poor at all.... the battery life is 10 times much better than se like t 610 and u can record directly to the mmc
I have this phone to and this phone is not coooooooooool at all,yah it has good features,but than again.
The tiny screen,the sound,battery life when you play poor MP3 it's sucks
So borring interface and limit record.What is the point of MMC slot?
Yoe can store poor Mp3 file and picture's and limit record movies,you cannot record movies direct to the MMC slot,waht a pointless crap.
I sell my 6230 and buy a good phone like Samsung or SE.
I was mislead by many Nokia fans here.This is not good
i've always been buying nokia and this one i consider the best till date to me
Can someone tell me if the MMC Card can be used to expand the text messaging and phonebook capacity?? Or is it fixed to 150 and 1000??
