to 6233 user: I was a bit puzzled on your idea.. 6233 is a class above 5300??
if that's what you think then you're wrong..
so what if 6233 offers 3g, I agree with lily, that feature is virtually useless in this handset(why?...try to ask again).. And even if it does have 3g, BOTH 6233 and 5300 belong to the S40 class ver 3..
they belong to the SAME CLASS..
so don't send 6233 so high sky rocketting to the levels of smartphones..
besides, 5300 works notably faster..
don't think that 6233 is a class higher than 5300, thay are the same.. but 6233 is intended for business, 5300 is intended for fun..
And the other one mentioned 6233 having richer business features...
well, it's a pity coz 5300 has richer music and fun features..
look, i'm not a music fan.. But 5300 is also an all-round competitor.. It doesn't work just for music.. it could satisfy all your other expectations, over-all performance of 5300 is better, 6233 is only better at its imaging and 3g connection(which is virtually useless in this handset..
whether u r music fan or not.. my PERSONAL OPINION is that 5300 is still a better pick..

Excuse me for the initial mistake.
Nokia 5300 fans, stop manipulate the readers.

GSMArena.com says in their review of 5300: "bellow average camera quality". Just the opposite, they give positive comments on 6233 photos and video quality. I'm quating for the factology. Moreover, the first "bellow average" is for 1MP camera (5300), while the second positive words are for 2MP (6233). No place for comparision here. 6233 +
Nokia 5300 has 31x42 mm TFT, 256K colors display (13.02 sq. cm). Nokia 6233 has 2' TFT 256k colors display. Which means exactly 12.9032 square centimetres OR 31x41,6 mm. How you can see there is a 0.4 MM (!) super minor advantege for 5300 in the size of the display which hardly could be notice with human eye. Almost equal, but lets give a + for 5300 for all music fans :).
6233 is 81cc, 5300 is 85cc. That means 6233 is the smaller phone. (while 5300 is 106g. vs 110g. for 6233)
6233 = 5300
Standard battery, Li-Po 1100 mAh (BP-6M)
Stand-by Up to 340 h
Talk time Up to 4 h
Standard battery, Li-Ion 760 mAh (BL-5B)
Stand-by Up to 223 h
Talk time Up to 3 h 10 min
5300 beats convincigly except that 6233 has STEREO speakers, while 5300 has MONO.
6233 HAS a2dp bluetooth profile, which was enabled with FW update of the phone.
6233 is a 3G phone.
So, even if we consider that 5300 has bigger display than 6233 (with 0.2-0.3 sq. inch) the result is 3:2 for 6233.
Anyway, 6233 as a 3g phone and more features is a class above 5300. 5300 is a music dedicated phone, while 6233 is an all round competitor. If you are music fans, you surely will like much more 5300, but otherwise it is not serious to tell us how better is 5300 compered to 6233. :)
What are the list of commands available through Voice Command ? I coudn't find this info anywhere including the User Guide.
Also, how is the performance of Voice Command? Does it work well?
Any info is highly appreciated.
5300 offers better performance except for the better imaging of 6233..
But i'd still choose the 5300..
the price of n 5300 in indonesia will falling down from 2,6 millions rupiah become 1,9 millions rupiah now, and 6233 decrease from 2,35 millions rupiah to 2,175 millions rupiah.
stop the argument, 5300 is clearly better,
if you have both of them at once, compare and you'll see..
the camera of 5300 is just fine, I think it's similar to 6630.. no probs with it..
the design is based on personal preference..
5300 is clearly better exept that 6233 beats it at imaging capabilities and 3g connection..
About 6233 vs 5300:
Well it seems that depends on your ages, priorities and life style. Yes 5300 is more fun. But 6233 is more serious. And opinion of 5300's camera in GSMarena.com review is:
"The quality of the photos is below average. ..."
I personally prefer the form and shape of 6233 which is 18 mm thin and classic. While 20,7 mm, 92,4 tall and 48,2 wide 5300 seems to me more unnatural. And as far as you aren't music maniac I can't see the reason to choose 5300, but it turns out that it comes to a personal taste ...
the mp3 player of 6233 is booorrrriiing..
mp3 player of 5300 is far better.. and 5300 sounds better on-speaker or in headset...
vga recording just eats up memory a lot...
qcif recording is just fine and enough..
overall performance of 5300 is lightning fast...
even the n-series handsets are slow.. 6233 sometimes is slow..
5300 has a bigger display and it's screeen is so fine, vivid and striking..
all i can say is..
6233-just fine and impressive enough\
the 5300 has more universal connectors(miniUSB, 3.5 mm jack, and everything) it's easier to connect/. And the bluetooth of 5300 works fast, while 6233 works somewhat slower, it even hangs at times/.. anyway.. phone preferences are opinionated, if u lyk 6233 den go 4 it,, but i'd still go for 5300.. By the way, 5300 looks nicer(personal opinion), having also in mind that the 6233 is so bare that it scares..
also, does 6233 have a2dp support?
because 5300 has it...
and it's not that I own 5300, I don't, but I've tried both of them, and the 5300 impressed me better... The only thing maybe that the 6233 is better at is the imaging features and 3g connection.. even so.. 5300 is more fun. i luv it... peace out!!
it depends on your own taste!! but for me( and also according to many), If i'd buy a phone, I'd go for the 5300.. 5300 is the best.. it rocks!!
it doesn't necessarily mean that if a camera has higher resolution then it performs better, higher resolution cams are only result into bigger images// It all depends on the type of camera used..
well, i've tried the 6233, also 5300.. I'm not that much into 3g, and I personally prefer the 5300 better even if looked at on a different perspective.. I think 5300 is still better.. that is, if u don't need 3g..
some people are saying 5300 is batter then 6233 .......... but they are rong they buyed the phone and now they want to say its batter from every thing.u can't compair 5300 with 6233.some people like bnnana and some likes mango.u like 5300 keep it enjoy it dont say its batter then 6233 or n73 or N95...............

They has equal displays
6233 has better 2mp camera (vs 1mp)
6233 has better VGA video (vs QCIF !)
6233 has more business functions onboard (dictionary and so on... - see the review)
6233 has better battery standby and talk time (!)
6233 has STEREO speakers
6233 has a lot better design, having in mind 5300 looks like sliding soap...
Now lets see how 5300 beats 6233:
5300 may be has higher quality mono speaker
5300 has better handsfree in the box
5300 has better Mp3 player onboard
I can't agree that 5300 beats 6233 in all aspects. But if you wont cheaper phone JUST for the music, than 5300 is better for you.
