I work in a mobile sales and I would still recomed this handset over anything else on the market. It is reliable and back to the old school nokia ways.
I have one and love it. x
OJ is luckiest of all as he is having a miracle 6300. Wish I too had.
To MOBZZY & DANI:
My phone DOESN'T heat up one bit. The most it does is get warm after continuous use...which is the case for EVERY phone.
It's unfortunate that you both have heating problems.
One thing I'm sure is that my 6300 is pure solid authentic Nokia seeing that I don't have any of the problems that most of you complain of.
well Mobzzy, 6300 must heat up becuase of the Battery then.
(just a guess)
The thickness of back cover and the distance between the battery and the back cover on both 6300 & E50 are same.
Its old phone now batterys weak the heating up is a issue metal does heat up yes although it isnt pleasnt during summer heat comes through keypad too
and Yeah, 6300 is still Number 2 in the Most Wanted Phones and best selling Phones list.
2 reasons why 6300 heats up:
1. Its slim and the Steel is THIN
2. The Battery is Behind the Cover
E50 is Thick so it probably doesnt heat up. 6300 is 11mm thin
E50 has steel front and back cover but doesn't even get warm. Now where is the logic about 6300's back cover becoming warm.
These days I find 6300 with more and more people here in the middle east. (steel and black version with men and steel and white version with women) Even after more than a year since it's introduction it is still popular till date despite getting close to outdate and believe me eveyone whom I have asked have said it gets warm to hot depending on the duration of call. So people out there still like 6300 a lot.
My 6300 never heats up, even with 3-4 Hours Music Playback
i have the Black Edition 6300
Nokia have improved it in everyway!
Why dont people Understand, 6300 Heats up becuase the Back Cover is STAINLESS STEEL!
Steel heats up with the Heat from the Battery, which is normal for a Stainless Steel phone!
Must mention its winter time here and when making calls on 6300 have been dissapointed as this set does not heat up during calls.
Where may i get a good set that can heat up for me ?
You complain about the phone getting hot after 5 mins. worth of talking but you are yet to say how much talk time you get out of the battery.
I stayed on a call for 30 minutes on my 6300 and it was cold like ice.
I stayed on a call for 2 hours and it was warm.
I stayed on a call for 3hour and 39 minutes and it was very warm but NOT hot.
please advice what to do with the NOKIA model 6300. Cause its battery charge duration is poor & set become very hot if talking time is more than 5 min.
Nokia model 6300 is a slip & handy model. But its performance is not upto the mark. During talking time 6300 set become hot. Moreover,capacity of battery charge is very poor. Battery charge does not remain as compare to other sets of Nokia.
I have been using a NOKIA-6300 mobile set which is made in HUNGARY. I have found that charge of battery is poor compare to other mobile of NOKIA. Moreover , if talking time is more than 5 minitues , the set become very hot. Asking to some of friends who are using 6300 model ,complaint is same. Some of them have become very disappointed about its performance.
