Nokia 5230 - small prices smart phone
Member Name: teh-arn
Advantages: satnav, internet connectivity, satnav, use normal headphones, good touchscreen
Disadvantages: low resolution camera
First of all i swore off touch screen phones after a terrible LG Viewty KU990.
I then managed to pick this up for about £50, i thought i would give it a go and if i did not get on with it i was going to take it back.
Ive now had it for roughly 4 months now and can say i will be keeping it.
Because its a nokia it came with great gps and satnav software.
The ovi store is great and you can download numerous apps and other types of software.
The touchscreen interface is one of the best i have used in terms of texting.
the buttons are large and i can type everything correctly and quickly unlike on the other phones i have tried.
There is also a response when you use the touchscreen which the LG lacked, i found this very useful because it still feels like you are pushing buttons like on a normal phone.
- free satnav & gps software
- its a nokia
- great touchscreen
- big buttons
- online ability (internet)
- you can use normal headphones with it (i use my skull candys)
- its a good size, not too small, not too big.
- comes with interchangeable cases
- very easy to use
- office software
- Camera quality not great 2 or 3 megapixel i think.
- Phone is some times slow to respond
I would reccomend this phone if you are not too bothered about fancy looks or the latest tec, its done me great and it handles everything i can throw at it such as online browsing, gps locating, satnav and the ovi store.
Its like a smart phone at a small price.
Summary: A great hone if you want something thats useful and dependable with great software
