By 12:07 Sun, 08 Aug 2021 Comments

A medium-sized candybar with a lot of nerves, Nokia 6233 is one of the current Nokia handsets that might interest you in case you are looking for non-smartphone 3G solution. What is more, the classic styled mobile offers a remarkable TFT display, remarkable stereo speakers, microSD card slot, and a 2 megapixel capturing camera capable of capturing video in the exciting Video Graphics Array (VGA) resolution, just to name a few. Exciting is not the word to utilize when describing the phone itself, but as you would see if you read further on, it surely packs in some nice features.

In terms of design and form factor the phone resembles a lot the budacquire mobiles Nokia 6020, 6030, 6070 and 6080. In technological aspect though, it most certainly outperforms all of those. Feature-wise the phone is almost identical to Nokia 6280.

There is one more version of the phone – the Nokia 6234. It has a different design but the same hardware – essentially, it is in fact a Vodafone branded version of Nokia 6233.

According to some, 6233 is meant to be the successor of the highly successful business mobiles 6230 and its enhanced version 6230i. They earned their fans with rock solid functionality, rich features, advanced yet conservative design and last but not least impressive battery life. Starting this review, we saw our task as to decide whether it’s a successful continuation of the Nokia 62-series. And when we talk 62-series, we mean business.

Nokia 6233 held in hand

Nokia 6233’s interface is identical to the interface used in several other recent Nokia phones - the user interface is the last generation of the Series 40 platform. That is why we are going to utilize several paragraphs from other reviews. A nice thing about this phone is that although it is the same “latest version” of the S40 UI, it features some innovations when compared to other “latest” S40 phones such as Nokia 6270, Nokia 6280, and Nokia 6131. We would not necessarily point those out as we go along, but you may be sure that they are there in the review.

As regards the retail package, besides the ordinary things, the box should include also a stereo headset HS-23 and a 64Mega Bytes (MB) microSD card, but as we have always assumed – the contents of the retail package are country and market dependant. The phone itself is offered in black or silver. The test unit we got was black.
