the screen quality is superb. with 1gig memory it plays mp4 videos abit lazily and doesnt have a dedicated video player.it still has the basic nokia look and needs to catch up with SE K800i sleek design.Nokia 6233's loud audio reason why i sold my SE K750i
i had priviledge to use w700 for 3 days and to me its a horrible mobile like w800 and w810, built up quality is cheap, screen is of cheap glass,music quality is soooo bad and even sooooo low than cheap chinese mp3 players and it feels so bad in hand like toy thank god i never buyed a walkman phone because all of them r made up of cheap quality plastic, 6233 feels sooo great at hands and now i understand why nokia is a leader, sound quality of sony walkman phones sucks they r tooo low and bad even with good quality hansfree and if nokia started to ship great handsfree like in 5700 then to me its bye bye to walkman phones
I Agree, it would of looked better if the Keypad was better. like 6233 but then No Phone is Perfect.
were one Gains, another Lacks
Good Luck on your 5320 XM Purchase;)
Thanks for the prompt response! Yes i agree! I loved all the features of the N81 EXCEPT the rigid, stiff keypad and the hefty weight.. In contrast, i also loved the Samsung i450 EXCEPT the uncomfortable gallery view that somewhat spoils the picture browsing experience. So maybe i'll just have to wait for the 5320 Xpress Music.
Lol.. Maybe you find the 5320 XM like a kid's toy because of the structure and design of the keypad, right? :D Well it could have been more visually striking if they only made the keypad a normal direction pad. Agree?.
Anyway thanks for sharing Dani!
Yep, iv had loads of phones Thank God:) and iv tested loadss aswell.
iv had a N81 8GB, let me tell you about my Experience
Keypad = Soft to touch, but bad to press to STIFF
Samsung i450 is a better Phone even though it lacks some features that N81 8GB has, still i450 is a better phone for Telephony
N81 Telephony Lacks its more Multimedia
this is were i450 Gains aswell as Multimedia
Hope that helps
Hmm 5320 XpressMusic is a Nice phone as in Feature wise its Great, but it Looks like a Kids Toy one of those Sponge toys everytime i look at the 5320 im like ewwwwwwww
this is one reason i dont like the XpressMusic Range. becuase there designed like Kids Toys. there not 'Manly' at all to Kids Toys LOL
this 6233 looks to Businessy for me, even though i have it but to embarrased to use it in school becuase il look like an Grandad with it
N-Series phone are too BIG and Thick. even though there ok Loooks wise, N95 8GB and N82 are appealing to me and 6300
Hope iv said enough;)
Hey Dani! You had a lot of phones right?. Can i ask if you had an N81? Because actually, i am comparing the Nokia N81 from the Samsung i450. But after that comparison on the store, i was left undecided and ended up buying a laptop instead of a phone and i'm just planning to buy a phone on December. Well if you had an N81, will the keypad be more comfortable with several usage on the keypad of N81? Because i really find it rigid and uncomfortable for texting that's why i never bought it and just to be honest, all my excitement were lost when i tried pressing the keypad so i didn't tried to turn on the N81 for testing. The Samsung i450 on the other hand provides good keypad and i tested it for a while and took 3 pictures but when i went to the gallery, i find the i450 not so good in the gallery speed in browsing the pictures because Samsung only left a list view of the pictures on the gallery and man, i personally find it slow.
Maybe i'll just have to wait for the 5320 Xpress Music. What do you think about this phone. Hehe.. :D I have posted an opinion there at the 5320 XM opinions page and i saw your post and i really agree with it.
is there any accessory like a "flash" for 6233?...just like mx60 for se fones(k510i)?
Some says, e.g. Carloud
they can store up to 4,000 sms, but lets compute,
1 part sms is .5 kb
2 parts sms is 1 kb
3 parts sms is 2 kb
so it depends on the usage, you cant save message to memory cards so MMC are out of the computation,, this phone supports 6 MB internal memory, but you will not use all of it for messages only,
so i guess 1000 one part sms will consume 500KB
and 1000 two-part sms will consume 1000 KB or 1MB
and 1000 three-part sms will consume 2000 KB or 1MB
hi, how many messages can be saved there at one time? i mean in the inbox of course xD, but is it possible to store them on the memory card?
pls help me get free medical dictionary software on my phones i nedd it badly i have tryed but to no avail and any medically related softwares (give direction on how to get it) i will we glad pls e mail me email@example.com
also you can't install sis applications as well as it is not smart phone som you cant read docs on it. also its graphic processing ability is not good. also since it has low ram therefore you cant play heavy graphic games on it .
signal reception and its quality is good.
sound is much better even than hyped sony
the menu are simple and much easy to use
so i would say GO FOR IT!
Can ny 1 who would suggest this phone 4 buying??
Bcoz i am thinking of buying Nokia 6233 nxt week!!
i require a Phone with:
Not require 2 Cameras(like in N70/N73)
Normal Battery life......
Would want 2 use it for GPRS/Music phone!!
6300 as it's battery drains out too soon(An Exprience from my frnd)!!
N73 has a joystick & 2 Cameras!!
N70 has a 2 cameras,Slow & hangs alot!!
N72 some ppls say it's camera pics r of low Quality!!
Wht version of Symbian OS/Java does 6233 support(For games & appz)??
imma agree on that ....
6233 has Unbeatable:
Great phone of its time. its the N95 of the Series 40 Range.
hehehe btw...b600 (samsung's 10mp [hpne) could only take videos at QVGA resolution
at 15fps though traditionally just like other samsung mobiles, on good daylight, it could reach up to 30fps
still its inferior to 6233's VGA video resolution heheheh^_^
heheheh 6233 rules over other fones even nokia ones
I've uploaded some videos taken by n95 and by 6233 at youtube hehehheheh
and in dark conditions 6233 even defeats the n95 video clarity in taking videos
(on some conditions) though mostly, n95 beats it
just type in my name at the search function at youtube ^_^
SE probably stopped making it because it was soo Special i mean it was the First Walkman ever Made! everything else in it was Excellent to. i still use mine even 4 Years later..it still works like NEW :P
I Agree W800i is just a Legendary Phone, it changed everyones thinking of Phones. it call it *Perfection* ..becuase it everything in that small Package. and its just Perfect. W810i isnt as good as the W800i neither is W850i as good as W800i
and yeah W800i can even compete the High End phones of today....
W800i is the Best. 6233 has some advantages over W800i but not many only 3 only
W800i = One of the Best Phones ever!!
the W800i is like the N95 of 2005 ...
I wonder y se stopped making w800.i bliev w800 cud still compete against sum highend fons.i wud hv definitely bot it if it was available.
i expected more frm nokia dan se.but nokia never rly delivered wat i wanted n se exceeded ma expectation all d time.
Bro iv been through practicticly the same Nokiafisation as you, but this is how the story goes for me.
in 2004 i got 6230 - i liked this phone alooot i sold it ...and really regret selling it and still Love it!
in 2005 i got 6230i - i love it to but i found that the 6230 was a better phone then it and it was giving me constant Software and Memory card problems! i got sooo sick of it i SOLD IT!
in the end of 04 beginning of 06 - i got 6233, i was Shocked at it...it was wayy ahead of 6230,6230i ..thats why im still using it today! as a Telephony phone.
then out of the Blue i randomly decided to buy a SE Walkman Phone....then i found a W850i cheap and Bought it! and Boyyyyyyyy that was the day i was so HAPPPPPPPPPPPY!
then i Ditched the 6233 i was about to sell it and then decided not to.
then i thought to myself! if SE is making phones like W850i, Nokia is Nowere!
then i came to Gsmarena...then it all started with the specifications comparing of Phonea and so on. and this 6233 forum.
now look at me on this Website today.......Thank God.
soo basically Nokia and SE Satisfy me for Phones:)
