    Come on guys.. I am using 32 GB and no problem..
    Just remember always use 75% of the total memory of the capacity of your card..
    Means if your card is 16 GB and you are using 12 GB you’ll never get any problem in operations..
    According to Nokia, 5230 supports 16 GB card.. But my 32 GB Sandisk is working like charm.. And believe me it is 22 GB full of videos and songs..

      what video formats is your cell supporting…
      i’ve the same phone but none of the file formats is supported by it till now.
      Can i have an additional software in my phone to play all types of videos or do i have to stick to Real Player provided to me default?

    I bought 5230 a couple of days back, it has been good so far, except that battery last for only a day… but this maybe due to my extensive phone usage ( 2-3 hours non stop call, extensive browwing and continous music, sometimes all simultaneously).

    The handwriting recognition is very good as I can write just like I write on paper, as long as I make sure I write each letter separately (unjoined writing).

    The only problem I faced is the display is not very good to read when it is in direct sunlight.

  • hi its very nice mobile.but not compare to iphone.

  • garvit

    awesome phone!!! no touch problems and it plays a large no of video formats. Browsing is very fast whatevr.. Its far better than corby. I m writing this with my 5230

    great phone for a new generation thanks to nokia empire……….

  • The Nokia 5230 is a touchscreen phone with 3.2 inch screen. The mobile is 3G compliant and has got a 2 mega pixel camera. The 5230 comes with some advanced features like the accelerometer to enable auto rotation of images. Unfortunately the phone does not have wi-fi connectivity. This is not such a big issue in countries with 3G network but for India, it becomes a tricky issue and you need to be aware of it before buying the phone.

      if it has secondary camera it will be more better.we can make video call also.but wi-fi connectivity is not a big issue.
