Nokia 3230 - Pocket-lint

 

Nokia seem to make a phone for every occasion. This is for those who require a large screen.

Large screen, Bluetooth, 1.3megapixel camera

Nokia's 3230 doesn't know if it wants to be a business smartphone or a entertainment device. Benny Har-Even tries to work it out.

Nokia 3230

 

Nokia has made it a rule to offer products different in one or two functions and intended for different audiences. The sense of launching 5-6 similar models is clear when considering the sales volume of these comparatively interesting models against...

The most principal solution is the refusal of eclectic forms and providing the model in a classic design. As for the appearance, the Nokia 3230 is a typical classic phone that will perfectly match a suit and is distinguished from the Nokia 6630/6680 in...

Attractive design, Good screen, Adequate feature set

Slow camera, Poor image quality, Small buttons

The Nokia 3230 is a nice looking phone which is a little frustrating to use due to the tiny buttons and slower elements of the interface. Also, If you want something with a great camera, you should probably look elsewhere.

Nokia 3230 review: Smartphone for the masses

 

Nokia 3230 is basically the first smartphone, which could be considered a middle class one. Nevertheless, it has pretty rich functional equipment: it supports EDGE, Bluetooth, Push to talk and has megapixel camera and radio.

Nokia 3230

 

The 3230 continues Nokia's run of style-plus-substance phones, offering a 1.2-megapixel camera, video editing and a positively lush-looking screen.

Triband capable ; Flamboyant design with flashing LEDs and rubberised grip ; Wave messaging' supported with optional Xpress-On cover

Small screen ; Lacks Bluetooth and infrared

While the 3230 does disappoint in some areas, such as sound quality, an awkward keypad, and that mysterious pre-ring beep, it is nevertheless a good choice for those in search of a lot of features without the heart-stopping price of a fuly-fledged PDA...
