Very rare occasions of battery charge failure.

I first found out about this phone as a possibility when I returned a review rate, and read a review of it on Ciao. It sounded ideal for me, so I also checked the ratings and comments on Revoo which bore out what I'd already read. It's a fairly straightforward touchscreen smartphone, with a...

Durable, good battery, easy to use

None

I physically sigh when I realise it’s that time of year again where I have to upgrade to another phone. I feel like these days it’s as important a decision as re-mortgaging. It seems that every other day there is a new phone with new capabilities and I end up feeling like an over the hill and out...

Mobile phones today are all about cameras, internet and applications. Frankly I think its a bit silly, you want a camera buy a camera because a. its bound to have better resolution, more mega pixels etc. and b. you don't look pathetic trying to take a decent photo with a phone. But seriously...

GPS, Apps, MUsic

Small screen

This is a very good phone that offers everything you'd want from a smartphone. GPS; Camera, music, and much more. For the price it is an excellent phone. The only thing that might let you down is the size of the screen in comparison to the other smartphones out there. It's quite small. But the...

This phone is AMAZING I had a swap from 3G as the mobile they first provided me with had all kinds of problems. I think that this is one of the best mobiles I’ve had for a while, it has a nice big screen which when the phone is turned side ways also goes side ways, which is more handy for when...

The Nokia 5230 is a nice alternative to a flash, expensive smartphone with an almost halved price tag of £118. It has extendable memory, touchscreen and 3G support, but sadly lacks WiFi. It also lacks a hardware keyboard which can be annoying, but the screen is large enough to make the keyboard...

looks good, includes OVI map's for free

battery life can be poor if using the map's often.

I recently purchased a nokia 5230, in white. The only reason i had to buy a new phone was because my old one had water damage. When looking around in the phone shops i was told this phone is good for touch screen, and even has a built in sat nav. so ofcourse i purchased it. Once i had purchased...

Not for me

Cheap

A bad, cheap phone. Avoid like the plague.

This phone is an attempt at the most basic and cheaply made smartphone possible. In many ways it is a success - it does everything you would expect a smartphone to do - push emails, apps, internet, it has a touch screen - however in my opinion it performs these tasks poorly. The touch screen, for...

poor quality camera,

I bought this phone after much consideration of various phones of the same price range and above. Although I was not keen to buy a full touch screen phone, as soon as it was charged, I was pleased to say that I did. The touch screen dialler is ergonomically designed to work with all sized fingers...

the camera

I have this phone on contract and in my opinion it is a good phone if you are on a budget, got a good clear screen and quite responsive touch screen. But the down side is the camera, as it is 2 mega pixels it don't take amazingly good pictures, Great thing about it is that you can download loads...
