I have a Nokia 6233 (firmware v4.52) for three months now, and here are some of my list of opinions:
What I like:
+ crystal clear 240x320 screen
+ best sounding loudspeaker
+ fast Series 40 version 3 interface
+ comfortable keypad
What I don't like:
- low 6MB internal memory
- no front camera (for video calls)
- hangs at some occasions (usually during theme preview)
- dead pixels in some captured photos
hey guys i asked a question that which headphones/earphones are offered with this mobile set
i have 6233 from last 2months,it gets heated up near the earphone during a call lasting upto 20 min,is it normal or do i need to get it checked..replies will be appreciated
Acctually its a Very Good 3g Compatable Handset,with all advance features.Gr8 achivement by nokia.
hai every body,
Anyone already try the microSD with 4GB ?
is it this phone can support the card?
exactly,my cousin has a K750i i got 6233 when i showed him the stereo speakers on 6233 on maximumly equalised his face went RED!! lol his K750i was not even close to loudness but 6233 was !! SE phones Suck
er the button that help on/off the hp are stuck hw do i disable all the part?
i wanna know which earphones/headphones(or whatever...) are provided with this mobile...
is it HS-23 or...
As I can see there is a super envious team of SE and Samsung owners, who can't bear such a quality product like Nokia 6233. Way better comperad to their funny phones in terms of price/quality/features/looks...
Well they have achieved their aims as the rating of 6233 in gsmarena is now 8.0;8.2;8.2; while before the "doggy ball lickers" from SE club spammed the forum was 8.3;8.3;...
if 6233 is switched to 3G from settings it drains the battery very fast but when GSM is turned on battery lasts along time dual mode drians the battery to so stick with GSM
Sir, with regards to your network setting, if you have only GSM network, much better for you to set it to GSM only, as setting it in dual mode will only cause your battery to consume more power as at this setting, your phone will still look for 3G signal in dual mode and page your network if it has 3G and thus consumes more power.
previous post gone too long..!!!
> network mode
> dual mode/UMTS/GSM
what diff does the 3 options make??
mine is 'dual mode' (default), our network is not 3G, i dnt use GPRS.
is it ok?
me frm India, using N6233 for abt 3wks now. no serious problem !!
> camera sound can be put OFF.
>not freezed/hanged even once!!
>pretty comfortable n soft keypad.
>500 contacts r too much for a coll stud.
>hear a lot music, so req daily recharging of batt.
>however, vedio forwarding option is available(min 10sec), but cant use!!
my major DOUBTS:
mem. card :
64mb, but can use only abt 57mb, rest(abt 7mb, almost 10%) is shown as 'free mem' but cant use it in any way. uploading data thru bluetooth, moving frm internal mem, none of ths ths is possible. for saving images/vedio frm camera, get msg 'unable to save file' .
camera: dead pixels
in bright light conditions pict ar too good.
but in normal condition(indoor) red,blue n white spots are visible at fixed places on the screen (hence also in photos taken). ths are prominent in NIGHT MODE.
on covering the cam lens these spots are clearly seen on the black screen.with lens covered ,use full zoom, the screen is full with ths red n blue spots.
VEDIO REC :
when capturing untill last BIT of memory(*wit abv mem crd prob) , the vedio is not saved whn mem is full, i get the msg 'UNABLE TO SAVE FILE' and captured vedio is lost!!!
IS THS NORMAL WITH MEM CARD N CAMERA?
I bet this comments bellow are posted by some angry SE fans, which have heard the 6233 speakers on the phone of their's best friends and got totally freaked... Shame on your envy!
Well, for me, n6233 suits my needs, since most the games and some applications are already in .jar files. Sound is nice also, though like bit inferior with K800. Firmware that I have is v.4.91 and never experience poor reception nor restarts up till now. I just want to day also to those lousy people giving lousy comments, shut the f@@k up! - Mabuhay Philippines!!
Hey people with bad comments regarding reception and build quality. Try checking your network first before judging this phone. Sometimes, you always blame the phone if you cannot good reception. Such stu@@ity! Also, if you don't like the build quality and such that it doesn't have a front camera for video call, what the heck, GSM is still much better than 3G. It is still funny nowadays that you talking in front of your phone rather than place it beside your ear as normal calls can be done. If you don't like this phone, then go buy another one that suits your needs. Don't blame it to the phone that it cannot do what you need from them. Probably you're just st@@id enough just to buy this phone and expect it to function like an N70 or even a P990. Bakero!!
The 6233 is balls, by far one of the most over priced handsets on the irish market. It has an average camera & even with 3g turned off it has reception issues. Nokia in general are falling behind other brands. Also please note Mike has no willy!!! Sorry for my english... i'm IRISH!!!
