I will re-post my comparison on 5310 and 6300 for you, Tarek.
ON LOOKS AND GENERAL FEEL:
-I personally find the 5310 to be more stylish, trendy, sexy. The 6300 is rather classy, discrete, and professional looking.
-When compared side-by-side the 5310 definitely looks smaller.
-The 5310 feels VERY fragile since most parts are made of plastic. There are also a lot of holes or gaps where dust can easily enter and accumulate especially on the screen. The 6300 gives a more sturdy feel because of its stainless steel finish. It's very solid with no gaps and when handling it doesn't produce crackling noise.
-The 6300's screen is brighter.
-The 6300's LCD is protected by a glass screen while the 5310 is covered by plastic(?).
-The 6300's loudspeaker is louder. However, the 5310 produces richer, "true" stereo sound. The 6300's loudspeaker is just mono.
-When listening to music through the headphones, I couldn't tell the difference between the two phones.
-The 5310's side volume keys sometimes wouldn't work. Restarting the phone would fix it.
-The 6300's camera "seems" better. Pictures appear sharper and colors are more balanced. I am not sure if this is because the 6300 has a better camera or a better LCD or both.
-5310 has NO "Night Mode".
-Panning and scanning with the 6300's camera is smoother, so videos should look smoother too.
-Snapshots take twice as long for the 5310 to be processed compared to the 6300. This probably means the 6300 has a faster CPU(?).
-The 5310's video player has no Rewind/Fast Forward function like in the 6300.
-A nice feature on the 5310 is the ambient light detector which automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen and switches on/off the keypad light to conserve battery.
-The 6300 has so-called reminder lights on the sides which discreetly alerts you every now and then if you have an unread message or unanswered call.
Considering all these I would say the 5310 is for the hip and trendy who are after looks and loves music a lot. For everything else, I think the 6300 is a better choice (although I might be biased).
just like to share this piece of goodie information with everyone
after extensive searching thru the web on (took me like 3 days)
HOW FREE UP MEMORY on the 6300...
as it only comes with 7.8MB and almost half is taken up by appz, tones, and themes skin... so you're left with about 4MB FREE mem.
and when you try to delete it
it wont allow you to delete because its supposedly READ ONLY FILE SYSTEM.
there is this JAR appz called: MOBY EXPLORER
which allows to remove/delete MOST files.. ^_^
very useful... you'll also need to set in the application setting to allow the program to access the files.
its a demo.. with naggin 10sec screen but if u can bare with it like i did.. its worth it.
I managed to end up with 7MB FREE memory.
as I removed stuffs that I don't need.
^_^ this 7MB FREE could be used for possibly (almost unlimited) SMS storage yet to test it.
hope its useful for some who been searchin in vain to free up their 6300 internal memory
Lack of arrogance no more like lots of it you arent mr nokia and the 6300 isnt good.nokia isnt the only phone brand in universe make a change you may like it.
I dont mind what i say is truth the 6300 isnt best nokia made.
i know i can make out but these days there are many copycats visiting are trying to copy you. so at times its hard to make out.
thanx for letting me know.
i just wanted to make sure it's you and not any fake OJs around because you IP address is different many times in this forum.
i thought nokia has solved heating problem on their 6300/ 2008 year series. because i used only in the begining of 2007 during when they had just launched and i used it in india as well as in bahrain the country where i am presently working had this getting hot problem. i sold it to my collegue who still has but not using and when checked with him his complaint is also same the phone get hot in just under 2-3 min of starting conversation. in this case winura is right with his comment. i will check with other users and post my comment in due course. at the moment i am not very sure whether this is happening only with some defective sets.
Yes but mainly my office PC. Other than that my home PC.
battery on 6555 doesnt seem to last more than a day though we have full signal strength all over this country. so phone needn't have to struggle to search for the network draining its power. also the performance of 6555 is very unstable as far as the hearing quality from the speakers. sometimes its like a land line, loud and crystal clear and sometimes the caller sounds as if he talking from a far distance though the volume is cranked up to max. i didnt face this problem with samsungs and motorolas. (i use Motophone F3 the cheapest phone in the world for my second number and one must appreciate its performance)this problem i also noticed with the new generation low end Nokia phones especially coming from china. is the QC suffering at Nokia? if this is the case very soon Samsungs and Sony Erricsons will take over its place.
today someone gifted me Motorola RAZR V8 limited edition plated in 18 carrot gold. WOW it looks too flashy and really not to my taste. i tried to pair it with my laptop but it refuses to pair. maybe a software bug but the quality of the speaker and mic are first rate as usual the motorola tradition natural sounding. also the 2 mega pixel non- auto focus cam produces superb pics with good resolution and less noisy with absolutely no shutter lag time which helps to take quick multiple pics unlike Nokias. Few things I didn't like in moto are its too flashy, quite heavy and very slippery like a fish. I am afraid I am gonna drop it one day.
To the FAKE WINURA:
Standard battery, Li-Ion 820 mAh (BL-4C)
Stand-by Up to 240 h
Talk time Up to 3 h 20 min
It's NOT the same battery.
The Winura I know, who you can find in the E51 forum, doesn't diss Nokia like that so more than likely the Winura in here is a fake. If you check back earlier posts from this 6300 forum you will see that Winura spoke highly of Nokia as well.
Some people enjoy giving others a bad name.
It's a shame these type of people can't follow in my footsteps.
I will remain ORIGINAL.
As I have said a million times I have NO problems with my battery. My battery is the original one which came in the package and I get more talk time than the time Nokia stated.
My reception is always full so I guess that's a big advantage.
My phone has NEVER gotten hot. The first time I charged it for 24 hours it was COLD as ICE. When I stay on a long call it's normally cool and sometimes a bit warm but NEVER hot as some you people complain about.
I have never had to switch my phone from ear to ear because of heat.
Some may say I have it too good with my phone and my phone seems flawless but it's the truth. End of story.
The KRZR K1 is a disappointment. I have used it personally and it feels like all those other Motorolas. The screen is small and far from pretty.
The OS is the same as old Motorola phones V300, V525, V600 and other V series. Most of these are old series so it will feel like a old phone in a new shell. I have always said that the only difference with most Motorola phones are the fascia (body/shell).
I was surprised that the K1 is in a high-end bracket with such a low end screen and OS.
I will say this once again...you CAN'T go wrong with a Nokia.
Try to get Nokia 6300 and a K1, compare them and tell me which one you would happily buy.
i too did noticed that 6300 getting hot while talking but didnt experience headache. maximum headache i suffered from Samusung X820 first slim phone.
6230 was a miles better phone as are sony ericssons the 6300 heats up too,causing headaches not a good phone at all.
Sony batterys and phones last much longer the 6300 is under powered as is the 6131 same battery again useless to last the distance if you go out take your charger.
I'm finding a phone for myself to replace my beautiful W200 but the only beautiful is the sound quality
I'm comparing MOTOROLA KRZR K1 and NOKIA 6300
any advices from those who are experts here?
(or just E-MAIL me)
coz i need to replace my phone already coz it faulty already
THANKS IN ADVANCE
Its Damn Phone....I'm using around 3 months now.
Hearing some echo when calling...
heard from lots, Same problem have them tooooo
I'm very upset about that phone.....
Strange that you get so much power out of the 2626 compared to the 6300 as the specs. indicate otherwise:
Battery Standard battery, Li-Ion 970 mAh (BL-5C)
Stand-by Up to 300 h
Talk time Up to 3 h
Battery Standard battery, Li-Ion 860 mAh (BL-4C)
Stand-by Up to 348 h
Talk time Up to 3 h 30 min
The 6300 has a smaller capacity battery but is supposed to give you more power.
Nokia engineers too skill (smile).
My battery doesn't let me down.
