The Nokia 5230 tries to bridge the gap between a feature phone and full-blown smartphone. Does it succeed?

Competitively priced, High resolution display, Decent battery life

Lacks Wi-Fi, OS lacks polish, Resistive display

Nokia 5230 review

 

Bargain-priced smartphone with some advanced features

Light and portable ; Good battery life ; Plenty of apps ; Good Bluetooth support ; High call quality

Lack of Wi-Fi ; Slow speeds ; Touchscreen lags ; Confusing menus at times ; No physical keyboard

One of the great truths about smartphones is that you should always match a phone to your actual needs. The Nokia 5230, despite falling short of expectations, is an intelligent device that offers a wealth of unique features. Whether these features...

Nokia 5230 Ovi Music Unlimited Review

 

"The handset comes with a year's free music downloads from Nokia's Ovi Music Store."

The Nokia 5230 Ovi Music Unlimited model comes with the additional benefit of unlimited music downloads for a year. These are accessed through the Ovi Music store and you get to keep the tracks even after your year is up.

Nokia 5230 review -

 

Nokia Messaging with support for 10 email accounts and desktop-like features, free sat-nav with Ovi Maps, two-megapixel camera is better than you?d expect, low price for decent feature set

Sluggish on-screen keyboard with no auto-correct system, paucity of decent apps on Ovi Store, fiddly side-loading SIM slot

Review: Nokia 5230 on Mobilicity

 

The Nokia 5230 on Mobilicity is a surprisingly robust and lightweight handset which is heavy on the features. As we test the new entrant's voice and data service, we also had a good opportunity to dissect Nokia's device and its features. More photos...

Nokia 5230 Nuron review

 

We review the Nokia 5230 Nuron from T-Mobile, an entry-level smartphone with plenty of features at an affordable price

Affordable, affordable, affordable ; Free, high quality voice-guided GPS navigation ; Voice call quality is superb

Resistive touchscreen likes styli more than fingers ; Nationwide T-Mobile 3G coverage is still lacking

Overall, Nokia's 5230 is a great buy at $70 -- especially if you want to take advantage of its terrific, built-in GPS navigation capabilities.
