battery life is quite a problem if you watch movie using your phone for two hours or capturing video for more than 2 to 3 hours. what i did, i charged my phone while watching. best movie quality too if uploaded from dvd.
n6230i is a perfect phone ever. Memory is superb, up to 512MB mmc capacity. still picture quality is great and wall paper moves using .gif animated files. mp3 and radio sound quality are great too. video is not that good and its not symbian.
I've had my Nokia 6230i for a few days now. In the whole I'm very pleased with it especially the middle nav "select" key, the problem I encountered with the 6230 is when I attempted to press select the key often moved down at the same time as the select resulting in a wrong selection (happened on 4 different phones), the 6230i dosen't have this problem, it's a joy to use. The screen resoloution is fantastic, you only have to compare the "built in" golf games on the 6230 and the 6230i to see how advanced the (i) is. I'm happy with the camera also, nice zoom option, works well when you use the best quality photo option. The only real critisism I have is the ringer volume, it starts off very quiet and eventually gets to a decent volume. Problem being if the phone was in a different room, by the time you'd hear it the call would of rung off. Having read other posts I did ensure the ringtone was saved in the phone memory and not the card and it has improved significantly, but still starts off quieter than I would like. Does anyone know of any other fixes or maybe a way to make the ringer last longer before cutting into voicemail? All help gratefully recieved..
does this phone has a battery problem? because some of the posts are complaining about the short battery life
I just brought this model. So far, I'm pretty happy about it. It restart itself for the 4th time when I'm sending my sms. Does anybody experience the same thing?
And also I like to warn you guys out there. DON'T BUY THIS MODEL IN MALAYSIA! IT'S NOT LAUNCH YET! I was conned. The model i'm having is shipped from middle east....I think! The one that I have is not acknowledge by Nokia. Sad!
Christine - if i were you, i'd wait for 6230i. I've been cracking my head - and still can't think of any other phone to recommend (within the same price bracket). I know a couple of places in Penang that have 6230i in stock.
hello, guys! did it ever happen to u, when u try playing a video of about 13mb or so, after like 8-10 mins ur phone freezes and restarts? thanks!
How can a phone so perfect (6230i), it's unbelievable but it's here. To those who still talking about 7610, 7610 is phasing out. Don't even bother about it, to me it's like a brick.
can you me what should I do now? SHould I wait for my Nokia 6230i's replacement?Thank you for your advice.
Christine, high quality mp3 playback and expandable memory are strong features that i look for. I do my research before landing 6230/6230i in my hands. I have friends who have 7610, 3230 and Ngage QD - only realized that their phone does not play mp3 in Stereo only AFTER they bought the phone. Pity them. And pity to all of 7610 and 3230 users (who bought the phone with mp3 as main driving factor) who realized this all too late - because, personally, when I ask a phone salesman about mp3 stereo on 7610 or 3230 - they will say yes, it's their judgement because those phones are supplied with stereo headphone. But in actual... is M-O-N-O.
Between 6230 and 6230i - I will definitely choose 6230i. That's the phone I would recommend to anyone. The shortcomings of 6230i in comparison to 6230 is not major. But even with those minor shortcomings, it is still ahead with other mobile phones out there (but of course, i'm not a phone critic - my opinions are based on my exposure to my relatives' and friends' phone). I have a friend that uses NGage QD is is now looking to make a switch from the complicated-as-ever Smartphone to simple-to-use and hassle-free Mobilephone - and is really impressed with my 6230i. SIncerely, my heart goes to you on yr faulty Zitron set - I don't understand it as well - could it be that my luck has been serving well all these while - because I never had any faulty phones (especially with 2 units of the much-talked-about 6230 and one 6230i). All the best.
Which one do you prefer, Nokia 6230 or Nokia 6230i? Can you tell me what are the functions which are offered by Nokia 6230 but are completely disappear in Nokia 6230i? I am still waiting for my replacement. It has taken me for more than a week.
@Haaziq Mehboob: AFAIK Nokia doesn't support this feature on any of it's phones. None of my nokia handsets did support call time during the call.
It can make a video with sound..
But, someone please tell me if java applications from 6230 work on 6230i?!!!
I'm beging you!!!!
Thanks in advance!
I agree, bought my 6230i off E2Save after trying many others. Ive changed it twice now cos the battery only lasts a day! Trying a 3rd one tomorrow! Does anyone else have this problem? Im stuck with E2Save now as they employ a company TMTi "Talk me through it" whos job is to get you to replace it instead of cancelling! Watch out!!!
The battery on this phone is awful. I thought it was a mistake when I recieved 2 batteries with my phone but now I realise it is because the battery lasts as long as a man does in bed
Can someone say if a 6230 java application works on 6230i.
Nokia 6230 i is a good set as i got it a week back and i have not found any problem with it till now.... the only feature i failed to find in this phone is the current call time display during the call... can any 1 email me about the said feature cause i need to have that feature in my phone...
Thanks and have a nice day...
Yes, I absolutely agree with your comments regarding Nokia 7610. It has mono output, it is really a putdown for me because I love to listen to mp3 on the move. Actually, it is you who gave me the assurance to buy Nokia 6230i since you said your phone never give you any problems at all.I am at loss now. Why so many people like to have Nokia 7610? what so good about this phone? Can you tell why i still get a faulty phone from Zitron? though, I have received lots of negative comments regarding Nokia 6230i. What should i do now? should I go for NOkia 6230i or pick other model? Help me!
