Summary: It is not as impressive or resourceful as my android, but it still gets the job done. I'm satisfied with it's ability to access the internet and the other features it has, but I miss being able to listen to internet radio and other accessible sites in my android.
Summary: I bought mine refurb locked no-contract directly from provider and only paid a small fraction of the cost listed here, so i cant complain.
Pros: If you dont have any expectations and dont compare it to android or even 5800 this is an ok phone. Its loud, takes sd card, limited customization, some cool symbian apps available for it.
Cons: dumbed down version of 5800, underpowered, slower, only one speaker, laggy. I ran both nokia maps and Garmin xt when i had this phone. Its nothing amazing but for me Garmin worked better than Nokia maps.
Nokia 5230 (Nuron) is good for basic and general use...

Excerpt: I had to change to the 5230 (AWS) from N95-3 after switching to a different mobile carrier service. I only plan to use the 5230 temporarily before upgrading to say a Nokia E7. Decent build quality, despite in plastic. The phone body could be thinner.
Pros: Screen (colours, brightness, sharpness), Signal reception, Web-browsing, Good for basic and general use
Cons: Battery (fast drain), Inaccurate text input from the touchscreen, No flash on the camera, No Wi-Fi, Low volume during a voice call, Inefficient OS
Summary: I purchased this at a competitor for $129 to replace my Motorola W370 on my T-Mobile Pre-Paid cell phone account in March 2011. The pluses at the time was a) a touch screen phone for under $150, b) a bigger screen than I had.
