Nokia Nuron for T-Mobile review

 

When the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic was released a little more than a year ago, we thoroughly panned it in our review -- put simply, it felt undercooked and

Uses non-smartphone data pricing ; Includes Ovi Maps with free turn-by-turn nav ; Looks good in white

No WiFi ; Almost identical to the aging 5800 XpressMusic ; Resistive screen

Nokia 5230 review: Foot soldiers get smarter

 

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...

Nokia 5230 Nuron (T-Mobile)

 

The Nokia 5230 Nuron offers T-Mobile subscribers a low-cost smartphone with plenty of apps and solid business e-mail.

Free Ovi Maps GPS navigation. Very inexpensive for a true smartphone. Sharp camera. Excellent video recorder.

Typing is tough on the resistive screen. OS sluggish and buggy in spots. No Wi-Fi.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions Nokia preloads Ovi Maps (Free, ), the company's excellent, free GPS navigation solution. This alone makes the phone an excellent deal as a nav device. You can also easily update your Facebook status, upload photos,...

Nokia 5230 Nuron review

 

Everyone loves a great deal, and Nokia and T-Mobile are serving up one heck of a value with the Nokia 5230 Nuron. Available starting March 24 for just $69.99 with a two-year contract, the Nuron is a full touch-screen smartphone that offers 3G support,...

The Nokia 5230 Nuron has free maps and voice-guide navigation via Ovi Maps, 3G, and excellent call quality, all at an affordable price. It's also the first Nokia smartphone with a U.S. carrier to offer access to the Ovi Store.

The Nuron lacks Wi-Fi and a document viewer. Its user interface is clunky and confusing, and we wish it had a capacitive touch screen. No flash for the camera.

The Nokia 5230 Nuron for T-Mobile isn't the most advanced or fastest smartphone on the market, but budget-conscious customers will find an incredible deal here.

Nokia Nuron 5230 Review

 

Struggling to get a foothold in the US smartphone market, Nokia has finally brought a carrier branded S60 5th Edition phone with the Nuron 5230. It's definitely the right direction that the veteran phone maker needs to tackle, but the Nuron only skims...

Nokia 5230 Nuron Review

 

The Nokia 5230 Nuron is a prepaid cell phone that is similar to a smartphone. It provides much of the advanced technology found in a most smartphones, but it lacks popular well-known and widely used operating system. Nevertheless, you can take this...

The Nokia 5230 Nuron has 3G and quad-band capabilities that make it great for international use.

This prepaid cell phone is a bulky device that weighs 4 ounces.

This prepaid cell phone is large for its feature set and lacks the most popular operating systems.

Nokia 5230 Review

 

The Nokia 5230 handset is one of the first low-end touch smartphones manufactured by the Finnish company. Of course this isn't one of those top-tier devices that can ruin budgets, but at least Nokia fans will be able to taste some of the early Symbian...

I think one of the best things about 5230 is its decent look, but I would also enlist here the easy to use interface. I would also like to mention here the ARM 11 434 MHz CPU, which is rather powerful for a low-budget handset, as well as the 3G with...

The downsides list of the phone could be much higher than I anticipated, but some of the things I wanted to include might not be “negatives” for Nokia fans … yet. So, to begin with I would say that the lack of a microSD memory card, as well as the...

Nokia Nuron 5230

 

From the perennially prolific producer of powerful cell phones comes the Nokia Nuron 5230, coming in at a smaller price tag than the 5800 (sacrificing Wi-Fi and some camera resolution to get there), but ends up standing proud as an excellent phone with...

Review: Nokia Nuron mobile phone

 

The Nokia Nuron is a low-cost smartphone with valuable navigation and mapping abilities.

This candy-bar-style, touchscreen phone has enough features to make it a reasonable concierge and a first-rate navigator. The Nuron is the first U.S. handset from Nokia to feature the company’s free turn-by-turn navigation with Ovi Maps, and it also...
