I got the Nokia 3230 !!!My mini review

I got the Nokia 3230 !!!My mini review

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i just got the 3230 yesterday,it has firmware version V 3.0505.2
19-02-05
RM-51
my first impressions of the phone are pretty good,its not as fast scrolling through the menus as the 6630,but its pretty solid and very light weight,overall im very happy with it,the buttons are placed nicely and it actually takes a normal RS-MMC (so you dont need to buy a DV RS MMC)im using a 512mb rs mmc and its running perfectly!!I got it for 360 euro from Greece.The camera quality is similar to 7610 (6630 is clearer) the 3230 has the clearest screen than any series60 phone.The sound quility is less than the 6630 ringtones etc etc.If anyone has questions let em rip
The package is poor it contains a charger,manual,32 mb card(no adapter)the phone and handsfree..thats it!!!!

Congrats on ur purchase!

I have a question, can you download SPMark04 from www.futuremark.com and install it on your phone, and let us know what the CPU Speed of the 3230 is?
I believe everyone is keen to know the answer to that!

Here is the CPU Speeds of other Symbian Phones:
6600/3650/N-Gage = 104Mhz
7610/6670/6260 = 123Mhz
6630/6680/6681 = 220Mhz

I certainly hope its more than 104Mhz! :S
Thnx in advance!

Im the other guy
Wow... so its the same speed as the 7610/6670!
Thnx buddy!

Ok i take it that u have used the phone for afew days... how is it? Any comments on it good or bad? The camera quality is bad compared to the 7610, what do u think?

And more importantly, how is the battery life? Technically speaking the battery on the 323o is 760mAH, which is much lower than the 7610/6670/6630, those have 900mAH! So how long with average usage do you charge ur phone?

Nice looking phone. Im waiting for it to become available. Im buying the 3230 over the 6630. Just wondering if realplayer on the 3230 can play full screen? I read that the 3230 will play 15-20 frames a second like the 6630 can. Anyone know if its powerfull enouph to play at these frame rates?

Cheers
Luko

Seeing as the 3230 is almost identical in both hardware and software to the 7610/6670, then playback of media will be comparable.

Just a side note, the 6630 can play full screen video at 25fps, and if compressed correctly, then smooth 30fps playback is possible with Smartmovie

Real player does not play full screen ,you need to put pv player,and the camera quality is similar to that of the 7610,its a 7610 with radio and infrared with a little 6600 characteristics...its a very good phone and i also have the 6630 so believe me for the price its a good value for money

Hi,

If your 3230 has this default theme,

is there any chance you could post the .mbm file for it.

Thanks

It has around 9mb RAM. Sysman shows 8.64mb of free ram after a reboot.. so obviosly with Sysman running in the background the fone has close to 9mb ram.
