Nokia 7230 Review
Nokia 7230 doesn't tend to slow down or lag too much in use. The menus are simple, and make it quick and easy enough to get where you want to. The exception to this is when browsing the web, very large pages made the phone hang while loading, but once completely downloaded, browsing was a breeze.
The reception was generally good. While the phone dropped a few words every now and then in areas of patchy reception, we found the device to be capable of providing a decent experience for the most part. Outgoing calls from the Nokia 7230 experienced a slight muffle and lack of clarity while still being audible.
The 860 mAh Li-Ion battery lasted approximately 3 days with regular use and daily web browsing, with the battery meter providing an accurate representation of remaining battery life. The battery is rated to last about 5.4 hours talk-time and 15 days of standby time with a music playback time of 27 hours.
The Nokia 7230 is a mixed bag. 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.
