We would recommend the Nokia 7230 to someone looking for handset with a decent feature-set on a limited budget who could overlook its flaws.

The Nokia 7230 is a mixed bag

from PhoneArena

While it provides a reasonably priced means of getting internet on the go, bundles in a camera, 3.5mm headphone jack, 2GB of memory for your music and a slim design, all these are unrefined positives.

We would recommend the Nokia 7230 to someone looking for handset with a decent feature-set on a limited budget who could overlook its flaws...

Alternatives to the 7230 include the Nokia X3, which has the same interface and a similar form-factor, only better audio quality or the Sony Ericsson Zylo – a new Walkman slider, if Nokia is not your cup of tea. If, however, you want something touch screen, the Samsung Corby provides a fun, good value option.

Stylish phone with slide-out keypad

Apart from its sexy styling, the Nokia 7230 offers little to get really excited about. It gets most of the basics right -- it's easy to use, offers good call quality and a spacious keypad -- but it doesn't offer anything that you can't get elsewhere for a similar price or even slightly less.

Nicely designed phone, weighty and solid to the feel with individual keys etc. Includes some fun games, but the platform is not very well organized when you're trying to change a setting or look for a certain feature. Battery time is good as long as you keep the fucntions to a bare minimum, otherwise it degrades quickly. The most annoying feature by far is the call volume, a most important feature on any communication device. It's patheticly anemic...and you can't adjust it. Less
