  • Nokia 5230 review: Foot soldiers get smarter
    GSMArena team
    12 Dec 2009 | gsmarena

    When touchscreen handsets start to take over the lower segments of the market you know the rules of the game have changed. The Nokia 5230 is a smartphone but it doesn’t mind rubbing shoulders with the common run of handsets. So, it’s free to explore grounds where few smartphones have ever gone, let alone full touchscreen gadgets.

    One of the great truths about smartphones is that you should always match a phone to your actual needs. The Nokia 5230, despite falling short of expectations, is an intelligent device that offers a wealth of unique features. Whether these features match your needs is the real question.

    31 Aug 2010 | trustedreviews

    The Nokia 5230 tries to bridge the gap between a feature phone and full-blown smartphone. Does it succeed?...

    Pros: Competitively priced ; High resolution display ; Decent battery life

    Cons: Lacks Wi-Fi ; OS lacks polish ; Resistive display

    Verdict: The 5320 certainly has its issues. Its user interface can take a bit of getting used to and the build quality is a little below par for a Nokia handset. However, we think it still offers great value for money as its line-up of features is highly......
