Had it a week. Awesome phone and very happy and its small in a side pocket of trousers. Those knocking it are full on phone buffs. I wud never buy a phone for a camera. I have a proper camera. The cam in this is great for basic pics. Without instructions i had it emailing in and out in 10 mins. Still finding more great features. Tried Wi-Fi at the library, was fast as !! dont knock this geat lil phone its great value at $249 NZ cash. And its mine...
this is a very bad device by samsung totally disappointed.i sold my 5230 to buy this with lot expectation,android has lot apps but most of good apps and games are not supported due to poor resolution.my 5230 support hd java and s60v5 3d hd games,but this one support only crap games.5230 even 2mp camera and video recording clarity was excellent y is terrible also screen is very small and crap compared to 5230.the android u.i is better than symbian thats only advantage internet browser browsing and especially download speed is bad.battery my 5230 last 2.5-3 days,y wont last even a day.
For those who plan to buy it if budget didnt allow buy c5-03 which is better than 5230 and y,or extend budget to buy lg optimus net,or galaxy pop both good phone.pls never buy y its a request from an unhappy owner.
spend a little more and buy a mobile set with better features be it android/windows/symbian.
this phone has very poor specifications except android be its camera,low resolution screen,no video call,low ram,low battery backup etc . go for some better option guys like glaxy mini2/optimus net/live with walkman/c5-03.
