1.Great build quality.
3.Excellent sound quality from the loudspeaker.
4.Good battery backup.
5.Though its a java phone,but thanks to nokia's asha software platform,you can do some limited multitasking.
6.Cool user interface with attractive wallpapers.
1.Uncomfortable micro sd card slot.
2.Its java phone.
3.Very limited amount of games & apps available for this phone.
4.Camera is only 1.3mp.Though it captures quite good photos for a 1.3mp.I think even better than most other 1.3mp camera phones.So there is a little complain about.But,still the cheaper nokia 225 has 2mp.So its quite dissapointing.
5.Bad music interface.
Speaker test-I tested this phones speaker and compared it with Nokia 5800,Nokia 5530,and Nokia X6.Suprisingly Nokia 230 outclassed every one of those phone whether its comes clarity or loudness.Surprising because those where Nokia's music flagship.The speaker on the nokia 230 has bass,clarity.Which is even absent in many high end smartphones.The thing is distortionless also.Its sound output can easily reach 77dB.And its maximum output is 80dB.
A very good phone for rough use. I use this phone only for texting and calling. Its not a great primary phone. If you are searching for a good overall primary phone where you can use almost all android applicaions including wifi, i would suggest you go for micromax,sypmphony,walton or any other chinese brand phones.
