Who gives a hoot whether its stereo or mono its a phone to recieve an make calls by definition in dictionary people worry and ponder over crazy things.
As for Dani, the mono output you were referring to e.g. 3310 ringtones is a totally different terminology. That "mono" means "monotonic" which is used to classify ringtones that only have 1 CHORD, as opposed to "monophonic" which we use in classifying music having only 1 CHANNEL. FYI, the older symbian phones i.e. 7650, 6600, and 7610 have mono audio output (whether thru loudspeaker or headphones).
I would stick with my own understanding of "stereo". Got this definition off some website:
"Stereo, or sometimes known as stereophonic sound, is the reproduction of sound using two independent audio channels. Separate microphones are used in recording and separate speakers are used in reproduction."
I couldn't imagine how one can appreciate stereo sound using one speaker only, as stereo is an audio reproduction which is intended to allow the listener to perceive DIFFERENT sounds from different sources positioned to his left and to his right. So clearly, stereo is best achieved when using headphones. But when using loudspeaker, you should have at least two separate speakers that are DISTANT from each other in order to SIMULATE human hearing (the case with 6233, 7370, and the XpressMusic line).
I think the 6300 is classified as stereo by Nokia since it DOES produce stereo output WHEN using headphones. But when playing sound thru the loudspeaker (which the 6300 only has one), the output is downmixed to mono. But then that's just my personal belief.
OJ has said it all
Stereo doesnt mean 2 Speakers
Mono output is like on the old Nokia's e.g. 3310 ringtones lol
6300 has Stereo Output
6233 has 2 Stereo Output
5310 Has stereo Output
to original_jamaican: what do you think who is better?6300 or 5310?
To ANGE UK:
No I'm sticking to the my 6300 for the time being.
When I do decide to change my phone more than likely I will go for a Symbian seeing that they are now as slim and fast as the new S40 phones.
I have my eye on the E51 as my next upgrade.
This phone is really cool i don't experience
any problems with this phone is can do basically anything .I advise people to buy it .It is really worthed
You don't need 2 speakers to achieve stereo. I even had old cassette radios with 1 speaker and the audio output was in stereo. The packaging even stated the radio gives stereo output.
Now, if you say the stereo output is better with 2 speakers then that's a different story.
2 speakers gives better stereo flow. That's the only difference.
Even my old Nokia 6230 had a stereo speaker.
Well i read that KRZR K1 easily breaks the front design
and the UI is soooooo old that's the only problem well i'll try to COMPARE them well so hard
I just like the only tthing about the KRZR is the DESIGN
and another thing THANKS OJ!
Don't be c0nfused. A single l0udspeaker(which the 6300 have) obvi0usly can't do stere0.
sometime back i owned 5310 (blue colour) and following are my comments.
5310 is equal or little better than 6300. First of all it doesnt get hot while talking, battery life is good atleast 2 days for a heavy user, sound quality from the built in speaker is firt rate though not very loud but sounds very natural & slim light weight make it very comfortable in your pocket. only minus side is it's cam which is very pathetic worse than 6300. hopefully any new software that may come in future should improve the camera quality.
any one there can tell me someyhing 'bout this????:
- My operator provides internet conexion with in my cell(gprs)I am in costa rica...I use a 6300 to connect my computer to the web sometimes...the conection speed is 460.8 kbps.....
-Recently my father bought this SE k550 and we installed SE pc suite...my surprise was that when using my SIM card on that SE and connecting the computer to the web the conection speed is 10 mbps!!!!!!!!!
Can anyone tell me why??? Has somebody there experienced something at least similar to this??
your comparison looks very objective, I'd really like to read more like them about the rest of devices we can usually see on sites like this...coincidentally I like both phones you compared and I almost sell my 6300 for a 5310 just based on 4gb sd support of 5310...I'll think it twice now...but can you tell me if 6300 can support 2gb hdsd micro memory cards??? Or higher capabilities??? Im also planning to get a BL-4C battery lo enlarge its battery life...dou you think that might be wise???
I'm sorry, I may have been wrong when I said the 6300's loudspeaker is mono, since it has just one loudspeaker so I assumed it was mono. I thought a phone should be classified as having stereo loudspeakers if it has two separate loudspeakers for the left and right channels, which is the case for the 5310 as well as the 6233.
I'm a bit confused now.
I've been using this handset for a while now and its doing really great. The only thing irritates me about this is its battery life. I have to recharge it almost everyday. Is there anything that i can do increase its battery life or the set is born with this flaw?
And 5310 looks better and doesnt heat up like the 6300 does a 5310 is miles better so what if its a music phone its better than 6300
if you ask me i would say
6300 is miles bettter then then 5310
my friend has a 5310 i had it side to side when i had my 6300
6300 felt better and was better
man i really miss the 6300 again! im gonna buy another 6300 defanatly tomorrow!
either in Black or the Original colour Silver/Black
il let you people know if i get a 6300
i Love it ........
