Well cards on the table first, after having a fair few 'Smart' phones (eight now, going back to when they first launched), I've finally concluded they aren't very 'Smart' for genuinely mobile needs. Which is not to say some weren't well built (especially my HTC's) or reliable.

'Smart' phone functions, for genuinely mobile use, I now use an outstanding Asus Netbook for (I know Samsung and others are as good, the Asus just happened to be the best deal at the time). Phone functions, therefore, I want an outstanding phone for.

My favourite, is the Nokia 6303i.

After having my 6303i stolen in Vienna, and looking for an urgent replacement, I couldn't find one on Ebay at the time. But I did find a new Nokia 5230, at a decent enough price to be worth trying. I loved the satnav function with the 6303i (yes you can do it, hooking it up with a bluetooth GPS receiver), and the 5230 has it all built in and free from here on in (just download the maps you need). It's a great backup to my Garmin.

There's no wifi with the 5230, and to me that's a positive advantage (like with the 6303i, I use the Netbook for wifi when travelling). The 5230 touch screen is good, the keyboard in landscape functions well, the battery life is good, the rf performance is better than good, and the audio is as clear as the 6303i.

I don't use the social network site stuff like Facebook but if you want such things, the applications are there.

My contract SIM has a monthly data allowance (more than enough to cover me for any accidental connections, without getting hammered with ridiculous charges), and I don't use any of it.

The 6303i is still my favourite phone, but I don't think anyone can go wrong with the just as solid 5230 either. Satnav being integrated is a definite plus over the 6303i, and the screen size is better in use for some I suppose - though I use earbuds and the text to speech directions, without looking at the screen - but that screen size does impact battery life obviously. Still not bad though, and battery life is about 2/3rds the 6303i (I try and remember to charge it up every weekend instead of every other weekend with the 6303i).

You could look at the 5230 as a great value satnav, which has an outstanding phone with extra facilities built in. If you can get one at the right price like I did, it's a heck of a bargain.

For me it's definitely 'a keeper', even when I get another 6303i.

Decent phone - this is my second 5230.
Screen broke (quite easily) on my first one.
I feel these phones are good value for money, although slightly large and bulky. The battery life is lacking, and if in constant use is hard to get a day out of. It is easy to use, I've had Nokia for most of my phones. The Ovi software I find really good, and it is great to use with a laptop.
The maps are good for walking etc, but phone is rubbish for using as SATNAV in car.
Also, when phone gets extremely hot it likes to switch itself off - and won't come back on until charged even if battery was full.
But, for the money, a decent phone, and with maps (the reason why I've re-purchased this model.)
I would recommend.

I bought this used phone as I was frustrated by using a mobile to text with convensional numeric keyboard. The Nokia offers a qwerty keyboard which is so easy to use. There are plenty of other features but you need a full internet subscription to make use of them. I only want to call or text. The 5230 is availble at around £30-£40 used and unlocked which is good value.
The MP3 player (with memory card installed) is great but you need to plug in the charger to maintain power. Camera is "Crime whatch" CCTV quality!!
It had a few scratches on the touch screen but gentle clean with a fine micro fibre cloth and tooth paste sorted that.
