Nokia 5230 is pushed to the extreme clock speed of 800MHz
By no means can the Nokia 5230 be regarded as part of the upper echelon of Nokia's smartphones, but that's not preventing the handset from showing off the possibilities it's able to achieve. As you can tell from watching the video, the not too relevant Nokia 5230 is pushed to the limits by overclocking its normal 434MHz CPU to a mind numbing speed of 800MHz.

Needless to say that it does make the platform run considerably smoother, but one has to think about the kind of taxing stress it's placing on the battery – or even more, the processor itself. Still, it just goes to show that you can never count out any handset when it comes to pushing it to the extreme limits.
