I think we have most of the queries answered.. now.. which colour would you prefer?
BLACK or the SILVER one?
Firstly, now I see what some people (the last - IRFAN ISMAIL) were mentioning: the quality of picture is not excellent it seems, especially when you view it on the PC or zoomed in in the phone. Is it normal for this phone? Or is there a way to improve the quality when indoor?
Paul, let me disagree with you. I am a moderate user too but the charge lasts 4 days, I mean it is not just in stand-by mode but used moderately. If other features like radio, player, games are used frequently, the time decreases to 3 days, but for only 2 days you have use it really all the time I guess !
Camera pictures look excellent when taken oudoor but when the lighting is poorer (not dark) the quality gets worst I think.
Sound, yes, I agree sound is excellent especially through the headsets, it's just like my Sony stereo system, unbelievable !
Thanks again Paul.. may be that is really the reason why people complain about hangs.. i.e. put incompatible things inside.
Also, as far as the still pictures quality is concerned when they are viewed on PC needs following explanation -
Usually photos itself are shakey. Because it is a camera phone.. you can have shakey hands or moving hands or a jerk.. when you press the click button..So usually on the phone's small screen it might not be clearly seen.
2. If you are used to viewing images from high end cameras.. certainly 1.3MP will appear a bit blurred to your eyes.. i mean.. nothing can compare to the lossless analog photos out of my old but gold nikon. Afterall it is a digital image with sampling.. you have to have a loss.. to minimise the loss.. means have more megapixels.. got it? Image theory you know :D
It is decent phone in medium class of cell phones. The only problem is quality of still images when displayed on pc. I don't know how to overcome this problem?
Firmware is not an issue. Someone long time back in this forum mentioned about firmware 3.40. But I am using 3.30. No bugs as such, no hangs. Some people say they encounter hangups when they see video in their mobile. I think their handsets are defective. I have never encountered such a thing and I have lots of videos and watch them without any problem. One issue about hangs as I mentioned long time back in this forum is when a MMC of more than 512MB is inserted. I personally tested my handset with a 1GB MMC and it really was a pain. Frequent hangups, shutdowns, slow speed etc. So I recommend a 512MB MMC. Any other questions???
Hi Paul.. thanks.
Firmware issues - which is the current firmware in this phone?
After a long time. I see Pinak has a lot of questions to ask.
The battery of a cell phone depends on its usage. If you don't use your phone, just keep it on standby then you have to charge it every fourth day.But if you are a heavy user like calls are made frequently, hear radio often and use the mp3 player all the time then of course you have to charge every two days. My phones battery needs charging every third day as I am a moderate user.
The camera is good keeping in mind that its a camera in a phone and not a phone in a camera. The pictures taken outdoor are really good. Trust me...I take pictures in 640x480 resolution because it reduces the size of files and pictures are taken faster without any loss in quality.
The radio and the mp3 player have STEREO outputs and are very good, especially the mp3 player. The sound is just too good when you hear them through the earphones.
All I have to say is it is really a great handset to use and the prices have also come down now, so its a must buy. Peace.
One Word: Beautiful!
Its practical, its larger than life, its small, its light, its royal, its sleek, its fast, its elegant.
really important job on the shoulders of owners of this phone now.. to paste reviews on all operations and features..
1. Battery life.. please test it.
2. Sound levels.. recorders
3. MP3 quality.. radio etc.
etc. .. go on
It's the best phone I ever had! I really really really like it! Wow!
nice phone ...i just bought it a day ago...and is the best...everything about this phone is excelent...
Well, it seems the only phone, which can be compared with 6230i is N70 (from those available in the market). The only con for the latter I have noted so far is lower resolution especially for larger screen size. However, I don't think this is tragedy. On the other hand, N70 is packed with really lot of more state-of-the-art features and functionalities that make this phone worth considering absolutely the best on the market. I may consider buying one once it appears here.
I was just coming to that by logical deductions that as MP3 itself is a stereo music file and the phone supports stereo audio output (radio), why should it lack stereo MP3 play.
The 6230i plays mp3 in STEREO.
Hehe.. one really stupid thing about this phone.
YOU CAN'T take backup of your phone onto your MMC card that you have inside it.
what is the big use of it then ?
If a radio can be heard in a stereo format, why not MP3s? Please note that only one loudspeaker is installed in the phone. So, direct loudspeaker stereo output is ruled out. My question is - through the earphones, can we listen to MP3 songs in stereo format?
Pinak, you can listen stereo Radio (there is such an option in Radio settings), but not apparently not Music (with Music Player) though I am not 100% sure, maybe it depends on the music file (MP3). By the way can anybody inform us on this? Thanks.
Nice Armanian.. LOL.. you are finally making me drop my wallet out for this phone now.
OK so..anyone please clarify..
1. Can we listen to stereo sounds (from earphones) from this phone? because I know that the loudspeaker is a mono.
2. What is the latest firmware that this phone is shipped with in Asia?
3. Why NOKIA does not include data cable with such high range phones? no one will buy this phone without a data cable.. because connectivity is the thing for such things. It is really stupid.
Lo, if you want too see the menu like in SE push the middle (menu)key and then the upper left key. You will see that you have this option in 6230i.
Is the speaker quality comparable to Motorola e398
