I have spent some time researching the 6230i, K750i and W800i on the Internet, and I am gonna share my thoughts with you. I have been a Nokia user for about 4,5 years, and are up to make a decision on buying a new phone (preferably Nokia)... I think the features are very advanced on the W800i / K750i. The pictures made by the K750i are of a great quality, and SE announced improved sound features. I guess that the improved multimedia features are due to the co-operation with Sony. To me, though, in the end a phone should primarily work as a mobile phone. With this in mind, and the experiences with Nokia, I think the phone quality and data features are better on Nokia's 6230i. So, this must be the trade off: features and size of memory, then SE, quality of phone / data, then Nokia. But, as with other "i" models of Nokia, this model will serve as a bridge between old and new technology. Nokia is most likely preparing for a completely new phone, with all the advanced features (an indication would be the freshly released 8800/8801). I anticipate that Nokia releases a succesor of the 6230i in Q4,2005. Including the Microsoft Media Player features... So, when you decide for the 6230i, it will be outdated at this time next year! What to do?!
@yy: It's up to 1 hour as was said somewhere on this site.
does 6230i have unlimited video recording or up to 1 hour?
thanks! if it does, i would buy one:)
Hey everyone. I think the major flaw of this phone is a lack of a microsubwoofer and a surround sound sistem for a better sonic recieption. And that`s not all-also I think it would be nice to enhance a screen to around 12" like a small laptop screen, but to make it folding to be able to downsize when necessary,ah? And how about a 10xzoom+5
Mp camera? Sounds good now? LoL..You-tech addicted geeks, you forgat what the phone os for at all...All Nokia phone are the best in reception and that`s their best advantage over others. This is phone, dammit, not a camera or a home theater sistem...Keep in mind, it will help you keep track of reality, guys. Good luck.
I really would buy this phone it has all features!
BUT it's screen is 65k which is really bad for today also it's extremely small which kinf of sucks, the menu system is as boring as can be and Nokia phones seem to me as so boring.
So I wont buy it.
to dada the 6230 is a good phone but u have got to buy the daddy of all phones the 6630 1.3mp cam 3g, 1h video recording go on son you know you want one
Enchancements seems to be just improvements to picture and video quality. I thought the price diff btw this and the 6230 was abit big compared to the amount of enchancement so even if the 6230 was bit old I still went ahead and bought it. It is still an excellent phone and ranks very high everywhere I've gone to from Asia to Europe. I got it for about US320 with waranty from UAE which I think is the cheapest place to buy phones. Not to mention that these are Nokia made in Germany or Hungary. Asia is getting expensive and Europe stays expensive for good phones.
verry interesting this phone. u know that most of the people prefer to buy a nokia because they say this is the best.. u have any ideea how much it will cost in greece???
I just got mine today. Man i wish i had been able to see it in person before buying. There's hardly any improvements at all. The menu is still boring and low-tech, there's lots of noise in the pictures, the email client is terrible and you can't make your own playlists for the mp3 player. You have to skip through all the mp3 and aac ringers to get to your music each time you use it. Nokia better pull their heads out because they are seriously lagging behind. This phone is my biggest disappointment from them yet.
agree to user 'cya'
Yeah ... Nokia 6230i was released ... what a sad day ... like the 6610 and 7250 Nokia has a passion for "i" ... no major improvements ... the same phone with a few functions + ... People buy because it is a Nokia phone ... for example if a phone is realesed today with good functions .. a top model ... after six months nokia will release a "new" model that it's allready on the market with a new function 7250 vs i : picture call and noght mode ... but the price of the phone it's much expensive then the base model ... and in this time the "new" model it's allready outclassed... Best regards ...
hey guys,which phone is more better 6630 or 6230i? thnx
does somebody know what date it will be release in the philippines? the 6230i phone,coz i cant w8
I had exactly the same problem with the echo. Actually it is the 6230 as this doesn't happen on any other mobile phone i use. I have a D500, 2650 and have sold my 6230 i have had 3 6230's replaced and each one of them echoed. Also to rule out it being the recievers phone just talk into the 6230 when you call a number and hear the dial tone, you will hear a echo of your own voice come through the speaker.
I notice that some of you are making comments about the 6230 and its echoing 'effect'. I have noticed this too, but as i have found out, it is not the 6230 that creates this problem, it the phone that you are having the conversation with. To solve this problem, u simply have to ask whoever youre talking to, to turn the volume down or their phone, and also if necessary do the same on yours. This should stop the echoing.
check samsung cameras some are equipped with AUTO FOCUS in comparison with this nokia... e750 is the best too bad it doesn' hav mmc slot
very bad pictures for a 1.3 mpx cam and the lenses scratch very easy although it is has nice performance
