Nokia 5230 has good features that give it an edge over the standard phones. The overall performance is good, internet connectivity is impressing and 128 MBs internal memory is also nice. However, many users allege that the device is quite sluggish and hangs anytime. In addition, this is not the perfect gadget for people who are so much into the camera. Images are not quite remarkable. Thus, if you are really looking for a device that will give you good images, this is definitely not the device for you.
