First off like many upcoming Nokia phones there is two versions, one being for the America's and another Eurasian version. The American versions often add "b" to the end of the model number. So needless to say this review is for the Nokia 6230b, but you really wont see it referred as such once it is released.
- Phone in general: For a phone with removable faceplates you expect it to have a somewhat creaky, lose feel to it, but with the Nokia 6230 this is not the case. It has a very sturdy feel to it, and feels good to hold.
- Screen: Very good for its size, at 128x128 it may appear small, but it is around the same size as the Sony Ericsson T6xx lines, mainly because there is no top bar dedicated to showing battery and signal while in menus.
- Ringtones: Very loud and audible, with a strong vibrate feature.
- Memory: Like most newer phones it has expandable memory, mine came with a 32MB MMC with various images, tones, and videos installed on it.
- Reception: rf seems great, but I will put it through some tests this week as my college campus is a virtual deadzone for cellular carriers.
- Voice Quality: Finally Nokia has gone back to their roots, the phone sounds amazing, the audio is crystal clear. This my first phone in a long time that I didn't need to crank the volume to the max. The audio on the users end is better than on the Sony Ericsson line, which is crystal clear, but on the receiving end it is just as clear.
- Overall: One of the best phones I have ever used, and has all the features on want, including the fastest EDGE speeds you can get (it is a class 10 device), bluetooth, camera, mp3 player, fm radio, expandable memory, and more.... This thing will be a hot seller when it comes out, but unfortunately I believe Cingular has the exclusive, but hey they should be one in October.
