The Nokia 5230 is a great smartphone.
The 5230 is easy to use and navigate and its menus and settings will be familiar to those who own or have previously owned a Nokia handset.
The touch screen works on a double tap basis which is easy to use and means that you don't have to go through limitless menu screens. I had read reviews of the phone before I bought it last year, some said that the touchscreen performed poorly, however I have never had any problems with this and it has never been unresponsive.
The battery life is good on the phone, but as with most handsets, the more you use the internet functions etc the quicker the battery will drain.
The handset comes with many apps pre-loaded, facebook, twitter etc and you can download others through the Ovi store.
The camera is only 2 megapixel and so may lack the quality of other smartphones but works fine as a basic phone camera.
Overall it performs well as a smartphone and has all the standards of a great nokia handset.
Summary: great smartphone
