7230 is the smallest slide phone we've seen. With its 100 grams it is
not the easiest. But both of these factors, we can easily forgive when
we see how big the screen is. 2.4" is a right so delicious screen on a
phone that is under a thousand piece.
The screen has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, a resolution that is
about to assume an increasing number of mobiles in price group to 7230.
Strictly speaking, this is not significantly great on this phone, when a
lower resolution would ruin the experience of the big screen in total.
The point is whether this total gives a good and clear screen, with
crisp icons and text. The colors are not a concern about.
Creaky and bad keys
7230 relatively is well screwed together. The two parts are securely
attached to each other, and sliding mechanism could not be more
The phone has five menu buttons plus a five-way navigation key in the
middle of them. Unfortunately, the four keys are not very functional.
The one with the plastic covering at the front of the phone, have no
platform of any kind.
This makes the buttons a bit too hard and difficult to see sometimes,
especially when you write SMS and you need to erase anything. It does
not help either when the key, to erase, is positioned at the top side of
the phone that is as far away from the number keys as it is possible.
We are not entirely satisfied with the numeric keys. The experience was
too hard, thin and too little responsive. After some use, you can feel a
little better, but we would still like to see that Nokia had chosen a
slightly softer plastic - both for the sake of the fingers and to mute
the keypad sounds a little bit.
The back of the phone is in the same-mentioned plastic. Half grove slots
allow you get a good hold of the phone.
7230 has a shortcut key, and it is for the camera. Would you like to do
other things, to control the volume during calls, press up or down from
the five-way navigation key.
Make it personal!
The menus of 7230 are of type Series 40. These are simple and
transparent. In sleep mode, you can go quite personal. It is actually
divided into "invisible" fields you can fill up with features and
shortcuts to programs you use most.
A clever feature we will highlight is the ability to change the font
size in menus and messages. This is nothing new in itself, but for those
who need a little extra sensitive to 7230, its being preferred. With
the 2.4 inch screen its fairly large because of the letters.
You can also download your own themes for the menus, as you can with
other phones with this menu system. The reason we mention it in this
case is that all of the preloaded themes on the 7230 is more or less
psychedelic, which actually make the menus less transparent than they
need to be. A quick
