Nokia has launched its ownknown devices related to the line of Lumia, relatively recently. Prior to this, the manufacturer of smartphones in the arsenal were phones that have much simpler characteristics. However, they were quite advanced at the time of their release in comparison with what was on the market.
Today we will talk just about one of the earlytouch phones, released by Nokia. It's about 5230 Nokia. The characteristics of the device, as well as customer feedback about it, will be given below. In the meantime, let's give a general description of what this model of the legendary mobile Finnish company is.
Immediately after its release, the modelwas positioned as an innovative solution, but very soon became a typical representative of the budget class of the company's products. If you believe the data in the online media, the phone was released in 2009 at a price of 149 euros - for a simple version, and 225 euros - for a device with an additional service Nokia Comes With Music. If we talk about official sales in our country, then only more expensive model 5230 Nokia could be found in stores. Characteristics of the service shows that this is a musical addition that gave the user access to listening to their favorite music. Again, at the time of the presentation of the device its functions were quite new.
Since, as already noted above, the modelNokia 5230 (the characteristics of this confirm) is a relatively low-cost option, it's no wonder that it was offered on the market in a plastic case. However, as the recommendations of buyers show, the material here is quite pleasant to the touch, which leaves a positive impression.
The Nokia 5230 device, whose characteristics wegiven at the moment, is delivered to the market in several variations. Between themselves, they vary depending on which panel is involved. The front part of the phone is present in the market in black and white, while the back is decorated with black, red, pink, blue or light green lid - at the choice of the buyer. Such a variety definitely allows you to individualize the phone "for yourself", which is clearly like the young audience of users of the Nokia 5230 model.
The characteristics of all mobile phones includein itself the description of the display of the smartphone in question. Our article is not an exception in this regard, therefore we will describe also the sensor used by Nokia in 2009 in the production of the 5230 series.
So, immediately worth noting - the screen here, likeon older keyboard smartphones, refers to the TFT-type. Its resolution is only 360x640 pixels, which looks ridiculous compared to modern devices. The sensor on this model is resistive, so with the simultaneous pressing of several points on the screen there will be problems.
As speak of the Nokia 5230 specificationsmanufacturer, the size of the display here is not so big - the diagonal is only 3.2 inches. Today, of course, smartphones with such small displays are not so many, but in 2009 on the screen of the model 5230 it was possible to clearly see almost all popular games.
Given the age of the device, technical equipmenthere it is also difficult to call advanced - there is a processor with a frequency of 434 MHz, which has 128 MB of RAM. At least a little, but the phone was able to reproduce the games of that time. Developers, by the way, judging by the reviews, quite qualitatively optimized the work of Nokia 5230.
Features of the WiFi-module are not mentioned, for this reason.cause we conclude that there is no such function here. But the device supports mobile Internet. In addition, Nokia has a physical memory of 78 MB (with the possibility of increasing it due to a memory card).
It is also important to mention the cameraphone to which this review is devoted. Of course, the resolution in it is not large enough to take photos of the text (only 2 megapixels); but this was already a good achievement at the time for the Nokia 5230.
Characteristics of the camera - it's still nothingcompared with the accelerometer - an option that allows you to determine the position of the device in space. It is very often used, as we know, in games and applications.
By the way, about the software and OS for the model -of course, there is not a modern Android or iOS installed here. The model is Symbian 9.4, which performed relatively well for the Nokia 5230. The GPS feature shows that the device is capable of receiving a signal at 20 stations with the A-GPS option connected. Thanks to such an OS, a large number of entertainment content was available on the Internet at that time. Thus, to say that the device, which does not work on Android or iOS, can not do anything, it's impossible.
Regarding the recommendations, then, as always,can be divided into positive and negative, emanating from buyers with different requirements and style of using the device. For example, there are those who claim that a mobile phone is cheap and convenient, simple and practical; has a powerful battery, a bright display and a sturdy body. Some users call the model a cheap option for a simple but functional smartphone.
Negative moments include some"Development constraints" associated with the lack of a module for Wi-Fi reception, an obsolete operating system that is not being released by new applications, and the absence of a flash under the camera. As for Nokia 5230, the characteristic of the buyers is the presence of periodic device hangings during the execution of more complex tasks and not the most docile sensor. However, even with these problems you can reconcile, because the phone is really reliable in all senses of the word.
Of course, the model Nokia 5230 can not be compared withmodern budget devices for the reason that it was released back in 2009. However, even this does not prevent to find reviews with admiration for this model, dated 2012, 2013 and 2014 - 5 years after the sale of the device. This, obviously, is the best indicator of what the phone was.
If you need a reliable and productivea modern smartphone, then Nokia in the line has models Lumia c pre-installed operating system Windows Phone - more powerful devices that meet all the requirements.
