The Nokia 230 mobile phone was released in December 2015 and was marketed to the lower end mobile phone market. You can see from the specifications on this page that it is a beautiful phone however it has very limited features. 

The Nokia 230 has only 2G features and comes with the standard GSM 900 / 1800 frequency range. There is also GPRS up to 85.6 kbps as well as EDGE with up to 236.8 kbps. The mobile phone is small and fits easy into the pocket at 124.6 x 53.4 x 10.9 mm (4.91 x 2.10 x 0.43 in) which almost a standard size from Nokia for the lower end mobile phones. The phone uses a mini-sim and weights 91.8 g (3.25 oz). You can find the user manual for the Nokia 230 on the internet.

The display is also very standard with a TFT, 65K colors screen and 2.8 inches (~36.5% screen-to-body ratio) in size. The resolution is also 240 x 320 pixels (~143 ppi pixel density) which is pretty standard in this budget market. The phone comes with a dedicated slot for the microSD with up to 32 GB. The phone book  has not changed much and holds 1000 telephone entries. Yes it holds call records and comes with 16 MB RAM.

The internal memory is not very big as the multimedia options are low spec as well. The camera comes with a 2 MP camera and LED flash. The video playback is low at 240p@15fps and there is also a forward camera at 2 MP, 480p with an LED flash. It makes no sense why there are two low end camera’s on the phone but might just be a marketing ploy and nothing else.

The phone comes with a loudspeaker as well as a 3.5mm jack. Alert types are vibration as well as MP3 ringtones. The phone has no WiFi or GPS but comes with Bluetooth v3.0, A2DP as well as a stereo FM radio and a microUSB v1.1 USB port. The phone does offer SMS(threaded view) as well as  MMS and IM with a WAP 2.0/xHTML browser. There is no Java on the phone.

The battery is a removable Li-Ion 1200 mAh battery and because of the low specs offers good standby time. Standby time is up to 648 h and music play up to 52 h. The Nokia 230 is very basic and I am not sure what market it fills but for specs at least 10 years old the price at about €70 is a bit pricey.
