Nokia 6230i review

 Review: May 2005  

Last updated May 2008

Rating: 4 stars

In a nutshell: The Nokia 6230i, released in the first quarter of 2005, is a few years old now and definitely not at the cutting edge, but is a design classic and still a good phone. The fact that it's still in the shops more than two years after launch proves that it's got a lot going for it!

Best buy: Nokia 6230i from Amazon Marketplace UK (£99.73)


The 6230i has a decent 65k screen with a bright active matrix display and a good resolution, although it lags behind newer phones. The 1.3 megapixel camera is acceptable, and the video recorder can record for up to 1 hour.

A welcome feature is the memory card that can be expanded up to 512 Mbytes. This provides plenty of capacity for storing videos and MP3 tracks.

In terms of connectivity, the 6230i has it all: wireless Bluetooth™ capability, plus USB cable and infrared options. Internet access is fast with EDGE high-speed data transfer, and the phone is equipped with an XHTML browser for viewing websites. Email is also available.

There are a range of voice features including voice dialling, voice commands and an integrated handsfree speaker.

All things considered, the 6230i is still a nice phone. There are no real shortcomings with this phone, apart from its age, so if you're looking for a bargain, this could be a good buy (if you can still find it in the shops!)

I have had my 6230i since it first came out and it has never let me down. It withstands dust and water, it falls on the floor and in mud, it gets soaking wet when I'm cycling and gets squashed in my pocket when I am carrying sheets of plywood or assembling frames. Ok, so it can only really deal with making phone calls and sending text messages, but then isn't that what these mobile phones were invented for in the first place! Great work Nokia. I would recommend this phone to anyone.

I bought this phone in a bargain store.It has been used for many years but it's still in good condition.I was impressed by its sound quality.The camera is nice (for daily use).However,it does have a few shortcomings:1.You can't install Java apps on the MMC 2.The speed of data transfer is slow (So I bought a card reader as well) 3.Installing the MMC can be really painful.After all,it's a handy phone.I would recommend it to everyone.

Reviewed by Viktor from North Pole on 27th Dec 2011
This phone is absolutely incredible! As you can see I am reviewing from the north pole where this thing doesn't attract any polar bears or arctic wolves its absolutely amazing!! I have to say it does an amazing job of lasting at temperatures below -50 degrees centigrade. What's more is that I have even tried to boil it in water to see if it would last and the results were astonishing. It's absolutely incredible to know that no matter what harsh conditions the Nokia 6230i encounters, it will always come out on top. To summarise on Nokia's undoubtedly best ever creation, I declare the 6230i to be the most durable, reliable and fantastic piece of technology to invest in. Please note this review was posted at the ending of 2011! Hope this helps.

Hi Readers! Merry Christmas 2011 - MMXI. Recycling an abandoned silver Nokia 6230i on the United Kingdom Vodafone network as a Pay as You Go telephone for Chirstmas, I find that (1)the battery charges up (2) the telephone switches on (3) the Bluetooth connection connects it to this Sony Vaio VGNCS21S/R (3) Nokia Suite 3.2.100 activates (4) 151 Photographs and 1 Video synchronises in about five minutes (5) the plastic covers come on and off easily and fit back easily, but the covers are broken (6)The Menu screen switches on (7) The selection square allows mooving to nine seprate choices (8)Messages (9)Contacts (10)Call Register (11)Media (12) Web (13)Applications (14)Organiser (15) Settings (16)Gallery - which is the central option. Selecting this central option, and then the Images file, it is possible to flick through all the photographs I have taken. Checking on the internet, EBay, the phone is available for around 39.95 Christmas 2011, and the exchangeable covers make it easy to personalise. The keyboard, however, is temperamental, and not all the keys work at all times. The phone is Made In Hungary. Maybe the Factory that Made this needs an overhaul, but made in sufficient quantities this Nokia 6230i is a possible handset for the largest number of installed and working handset globally spot? Which is the world's top mobile telephone handset currently in terms of installed, maintained and working mobile telephone handset? How many Nokia 6230i-s are currently in use and working? Maybe the currently installed and working handset numbers is a good indication of overall quality and useability. Does the Guiness Book of World Records contain a prize for the Manuafacturer that keeps the largest numbers of handsets working and operational? Is Nokia the current top manufacturer? Cheers for now. Stef

hi..a few years later down the line, i still use my 6230i, mainly for gprs wap use. i won't let go of this phone as the battery is very good since i get 4 hours of wap compared to 1 hour of wap on my other phone nokia 6300.. the memory card is small but good at the time. if it supported 2gb at the time i would have been happier.. but as we have moved on since then, looking back in nostalgia, i'm fond of this phone

My first moby, had it four and a half years now. Also had since then a Sony slide phone which died at the first splash of wine and a Motorolla pebble which was awkward to use with stupid menu etc. and now I have a works phone HTC Touch 2 which I can't get on with as it's far too complex to just use as a phone with one hand and it's battery lasts only one day! OVERALL this phone is best as it has been used on building sites and dropped many many times incl. in water and still works fine! Original battery still goes 2 days which is twice the new HTC. Signal is good, radiation low to moderate, keypad easy, sound quality high, ergonomics great, manly & tough design and always reliable. In fact it's bullet proof! 10 out of 10! I love it and want to buy a new one now, in 2011!!! Well done Nokia.

What a phone, 4 years on and its still working like new. I wonder if up to date phones would last this long!!!!! My guess, stick to basic phones, the flash ones with gizmo's don't last long.

Reviewed by Mathurankan from UK on 20th Jul 2009
I think this is a really great phone. It is affordable. People who can't afford to buy new phones with new technologies can buy this one. Camera is good but the video kinda sux. It has music player but it cannot play '.WMA' files so it has to be converted to '.mp3'. You wont get much space for games and applications. Maximum space for games and application is less than 5MB. So if you are looking for games to play on mobile phone then you must look for other latest nokia phones. Also you need a PC and Nokia software to install games and applications. I did recieve the CD but haven't recieved the cable to connect to PC so I brought a USB bluetooth and I transfer and install games using that. I got a good looking black version and I hate the white/silver one. Finally I woulden't recommend this phone but I like it :)

I had a 6230i, then got rid of it in favour of my free upgrade 6500c. What a mistake, the 6500c is good but the 6230i is the real classic. If you don't mind the 1.3m camera then everything else on it is brilliant, especially the expandable memory.

6230i..........Great phone in its day. I found one the other day in a recycle bin for mobiles. Loads of different makes and models, but this one stood out more than the others as I had one when they first came out. Since then I have never had one that comes close to the quality of menu/interface to the build of handset. Yeah it does get dust behind the cover and on the screen, but hte cover removes and you can clean it. I use a 3109 for work. I do prefer the up to date menu/interface Nokia has at the moment, but I seek a phone with little gadgets just like the 3109. I did have a 3110 for my private phone but the only extra was a rubbish camera, yet the phone was great. Why are manufacturers going away from what a phone should do. You make calls and send texts and that what phones should be about. Please please please Nokia, make a phone for calls and texts only, combine what was the 6310i the 6230i and phones like 3109 and make a great new phone with great battery life, signal etc.

I've been using 6230i for more that 2 years 8 months and had absolutely no issues for the first 2 years. Only recently there have been problems with the battery getting puffed and discharging within a couple of hours. I still cant give away this phone. It has all the necessary features that are in today, sleek enough to not show an ugly bulk in the pockets, not too slim or delicate like the new phones and easily noticeable if its missing ;). I've changed 2 batteries and will buy another one soon. For long life of the new battery, my vendor advised me to only charge it for 30-45 minutes when the battery is low. I have a feeling it will work. So this is to all those facing a similar issue.

Easy to use and quick to respond, what more could you ask for but for Nokia to copy this phone and improve some of the features like the camera but then in doing that would it ruin a good phone.

id say this fone is just ok it has a 1.3 megapixel camera but the pictures are always grainy n poor the video quality is just just average , it has an internal memory of 22 mb only does not easily support memory cards of big capacities easily,u cannot watch a video in full screen mode n thats not good at all lets not forget that the screen is not a big one,plz dont buy it,buy a nokia 6280 instead or just switch to the N series i mean buy a nokia N70,N72 or N73 ull be very happy forever its a bit expensive but a fone like these ones can be kept for years they are awesome.

My parents gave this to me October 2005. Up to this moment of writing, the gadget is still working without any minor defects. Long-lasting phone. The best gadget from Nokia. To choose between the Nokia N Series and the Nokia 6230i, I'd rather choose 6230i. :) WWW.RANDELL.TK
