I have this phone in my store. What can I say: It is bigger than 6230i (it's big compared with many phones); camera..9 points; video recorder..10+ points! The phone is really fast when navigate in menu. The bluetooth menu and its services has been improved. The screen is OK, but Samsung has better display. The sound is really loud in speakrs and very clear! But the sound (mp3) in the headset in too low.
On the other hand..i recomand this phone to everyone..is super!
Pls excuse my bad language (I'm from Romania)
Hi Raj, I'm one of those M1 customer, I bought direct fm them as I can upgrade my line(less than 12 mths)& also need not to configure all those 3G/GPRS settings + free Sim Card upgrade. Another advantage, Nokia original pakaging(Label fm Nokia for M1), just beware that "some" shops selling low price are "export" set. Thay still issue warranty card fm Nokia.

Most of the phones with flash doesn't work like a digital camera flash. So far I tried the SEPARATE ATTACHMENT FLASH on SE K750i, it really flash like the digital camera flash. By the way, I have phones which one is Nokia 6233 and the other SE K750i (spare phone on my 2nd line) but waiting for the N73 to replace my current 6233 when N73 out.
Perhaps in the future, phone makers may install digital camera flash on mobile phone.
I think there should be some restriction or limitations on mobilephone because if a mobilephone work like or as good as a high end digital camera then who will buy digital camera?
Thanks for reading and have a nice day.
Mustafa store in serangoon is the authorized dealer of Nokia (checked with Nokia) and in fact they are much secure and bigger than many small phone dealers in Singapore. They will break the security seal of the box infront of you and everything is brand new untouched and their stocks are supplied by local distributors Telechoice International (phone usually inside got the telechoice sticker. In fact most of the phone shops outside have opened all the boxes before you buy and claimed that they need to check the items inside the box but to me it defeated the purpose of the security seal by the manufacturer on the box.
I used to buy new phones without contract from Mustafa at midnite (24hrs) as they sell both local and export sets (local set price slightly higher but the choice is yours). Some people paid less for an export set and later claimed no local warranty which is not true (100% wty when you buy local set). What you do is that keep the original receipt which stated with wty.
But before you buy any phones from Mustafa, you do some research on the mkt price so that you get what you want. For me, I rather buy from Mustafa than some shop dealers outside as I have some unpleasant experiences on the my previous purchase.
Coming back, I think the original accessories for Nokia phones you can get it much cheaper at Mustafa where Nokia shops sell very expensive, for examples battery you can get much cheaper (also original).
So don't worry to buy from Mustafa, even you go to any shops there is always a risk but jsut make sure you check all the imei nos. original receipt, wty card stamped (of course the receipt and the shop stamp must tally with the same company receipt you bought).
Thanks for reading and have a nice day ahead.

if you want 3G phone for Video Call. Don't get this phone. Why? It only got one camera at behind. so how you does your friend see your face in a video call? you have to flip the phone back.
The disadvantage of this phone is it does not comes with built-in flash.

Why is there so few information about this phone ? No review from new users, only 3 official pictures, etc... We are asking if it's real : i'd be really happy to see package picture for example !
And i'm wondering when i'll see a real one in France...
Yeah, I've got it too, at only S$498, MP3 music is really fantastic thru speaker & earpiece. Just a pity that ascending ring tone STILL remain....internal memory is dam low, font very small......other than that, still top of 6230i.
