to markee, aira and the other one below: I agree with u too!! NO WONDER!! even the n-series is beaten by 5300.. 5300 offers virtually same features as the n-series but it works lightning fast., n-series is slow, 6233 is just fine, but still it doesn't come close to 5300's performance.. I think, actualy.. many others share this opinion..
this phone is great.. but I also think that 5300 is better in all aspects, except for 3g.. But I still go for 5300.. 5300 rulez!!!
this phone has impressive features.. even though.. I think I still prefer the Nokia 5300.. I personally think that it has better features especially when it comes to music capabilities.. 5300 is really still the leading mobile feature-wise if not design-wise..
The sound is nice, loud and clear.. But still it doesn't beat the 5300.. they don't have a match, 5300's speaker is far better than anyother phone on the market.. Besides, 5300's music player is way better!!
Hmmm... I now notice that after upgrading to v5.10 firmware, I can't get to re-populate the Application List in the Go To menu. It just stays empty. I see other people on the net having the same problem too... =P
i have this phone for few days... its busines phone but alarm is bad... i cant set work alarm
independently from others like my motorola
v550... this phone has one alarm for everything
i cant set one for work an leave it and set others for other purposes... alarm vibration cant be turned off and its bothering me...
but for everything else phone is great...
Well, it's ok to go for what yoi want - k750, k550 and so on...
But after you hold your friend's 6233 you'll regret a lot...
First of all, K750 has better camera and pictures than k550! (read k550 review in this site)
Second, you should go for SE if you want macro photos and some night photos (*). There is no good night pictures by phone at all, except theese made by SE-k800 with its Xenon Flash for example. If you believe you can take decent pictures with diode light, check the reviews again...
And to tell you the truth 6233 is a chass above k750i and thats not only my opinion. Except the autofocus and rather useless diode you have VGA video recording VS QCIF video recordin which is a HUGE difference.
Also you have realy decent pics in daily light, which is enough in my opinon, having in mind that I haven't seen good night phone pictures at all. And what about keypad? 6233 just blows SE away in this aspect. User interface of 6233 is the newst nokia S40 third edition, which is really good. SE also has good interface, but having in mind
QVGA 320x240 display of 6233
there is no place for comparision. All in all I'think 6233 is stronger competitor. But if you're looking only for a better pictures but not for better all round phone, go for k750i...
i would reccomend you go for a SE K550i (sorry to say in the 6233 forum lol)
the SE K550i has outperformed 6233 by along way in terms of camera.everything else 6233 has like Stereo speakers(so damn Loud)
6233 camera the pics in night are very bad they have red lines going across them.
im sure K550i dont have that! .good luck on the purchase Rakesh.
please dont actived the operator service..
pls help..my 6233 can't send MMS but can do receive. the screen goes white (blank) and then restart, when i push send on an image.. but it works while the phone is still brand new. should i do upgrade to 5.10? any other solution? thank.
Thanks 187 !
I think I'll go for K750. My main requirement is a good camera+phone.
Thanks once again.
Let's admit it.. the 6233 always had the best speaker.. and that rate is only until the release of 5300.. Now, the 5300 has a better speaker..
I was using the 6233 and just switched yesterday to 5300.. and yes, the sound quality and loudness of my new phone(5300) is better.. far better...
5300's sound not clear enough 4 u?? r u crazy.. maybe u got a defectiv model.. The sound of a real 5300's speaker is really impressive.. it's out of this world(considering it's a mobile phone speaker).. the sound is bangin'/// 5300 is the best music phone, best speakers.. But speakers of 6233 are just fine...
the Alarm starts low then gets Higher .its ascending becuase the speakers are Loud 6233 phones Start low becuase the Speakers are Soo loud if it starts Loud it will Make you Jump in Shock.thats why Nokia have made it Ascending.for that reason.
uhmm, the sound is nice.. but I think I still prefer the speaker of 5300,..
6233 rules! the 5300 does have loud speakers but the sound quality of the 6233 is the best.
i'm running v 5.10. just updated it online using the nokia software updater. great feature , don't have to go to the service centre for it and theres no problem with the warranty as nokia itself states and recommends you to update your firmware yourself. The best phone i've had till now, earlier was a nokia 6230i. some users may have some minor bugs but thats just due to the cheaper chinese factory products. my 6230i was a chinese made had some glitches but my 6233 is a german made, just great sound and a great phone
Nokia 6233 is simply the rocking fone. 5300 might be a bit louder, but it is not as crystal clear as 6233.. Other than lack of Flash, there is nothing that can stop you from owning one. It does wonders with music, try HS20 earphones, Sony Ericsson music would sound like a child.
