Nokia 7230 review

 

Can Nokia's budget 3G slider really mix it with the best?

3G connectivity on a budget ; Stylish design and ergonomic feel ; Ease of calling and messaging ; Impressive internet experience ; Good quality apps pre-loaded ; Decent outdoor images from the 3.2MP camera

The disappointing performance of Ovi ; Incredibly slow email ; Poor audio quality of media player ; Lack of flash on the camera ; Low-quality indoor and low light snaps ; Less-than-intuitive interface

Not everyone needs a phone with a million apps and a 20MP camera.

A simple but effective low-cost slider phone.

Low price, Compact form factor

Poor screen, Shoddy Camera, No Wi-Fi

Nokia 7230 Review

 

Another low-budget handset from Nokia which promises to make sharing pictures, messaging and social networking easy as pie. But with a multitude of low-cost, not-too-hideous and function-rich handsets…

Nokia 7230 review -

 

Bright, friendly interface, Good navigation features with Ovi Maps, 3G internet, over-the-air backup with Ovi.com, 3.5mm audio jack

Programs load slowly, instant messaging app only supports Ovi accounts

Nokia 7230 Overview

 

In March 2010 a new slider Nokia 7230 appeared on store shelves. Nokia phones are distinguished with classical, and to some extent, even conservative design. And, despite the fact that the manufacturer provides a whole range of sliders of different...

Nokia 7230 Review by 3G.co.uk

 

You're unlikely to find anything better for the money.

A simple, attractive grid interface, good navigation thanks toOvi Maps, a 3.5mm audio port, 3G internet speeds and backup from Ovi.com

It takes some time to load even basic programs, and the only instant messaging available is Ovi Messaging

The Nokia 7230 is a good deal for a hundred quid – you're unlikely to find anything better for the money.

Nokia 7230

 

The 7230 is a feature-packed prepaid let down by call quality issues and a few design quirks.

Sleek design ; Feature-rich ; Doubles as a decent music player ; 2GB memory included

Screen's poor viewing angle ; Nav-pad lacks definition ; Call quality suffers in both directions

Nokia 7230 Review

 

The Nokia 7230 is a 3G entry level slider that was released earlier this year running Nokia's S40. Although it is a basic slider, the phone still sports some decent features such as a 3.2 megapixel camera and a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and therefore...

Nokia 7230 Review

 

The Nokia 7230 is a low to mid-range mobile handset, with just the basic features. It is intended to target first-time or young users, easing them into the complexities of a handset. The 7230 will win no prizes for originality, design or features, but...

Screen's poor viewing angle ; Nav-pad lacks definition ; Call quality suffers in both directions

The Nokia 7230 is a sexy-looking phone and a feature-packed prepaid option let down in some measure by a few design quirks and less-than perfect calling hardware. In this price range there will always be a few trade-offs, but we can only wish that...
