The AC-3 charger which comes with the Nokia 6300 takes 2hr. 30mins. to charge a completely empty battery in off mode. I got an AC-4 charge which charges a completely empty battery in 1hr. 15mins. That shaves off 1/2 the time.
Seeing that the AC-4 charger is a rapid charger, I decided to use it to charge the 6233. As soon as the 6233 battery got low I plugged in the charger and the blasted thing took 2 hours to charge...the battery wasn't empty and it took 2 hours to charge!!!
That is true. I find that the backlight goes out quickly if no keys are pressed. I decided to test out a game and as the game started the light went out. This game takes 5 seconds to start...so I guess within 5 secs. the backlight goes dim.
6300 is much better than 6233 ive got both what annoys me with 6233 is when im reading a text an after 8 seconds the backlight goes off!argh its annoying
Hello I am planning to buy this phone. Can someone tell me what is the maximum size of memory card that can be used in this.
I have been testing the 6233 rigorously. It's a good phone, comfortable to use and feels good in the hands but the bulkiness is a let down and it feels old in comparison to 6300.
I think the speakers are overhyped. Yes they sound good and yes they are loud but 6300 pumps better stereo and 6300 is louder in some cases. None of the full length songs from my memory card plays loudly on the 6233. The volume is just ok. Whereas my 6300 plays them louder. The built in tones which came preloaded with 6233 is louder than 6300 built in tones. Also, a few short MP3 rings plays much more loudly on the 6233.
I was expecting a boom box. I expected the 6233 to play every song loud. I am disappointed.
The 6233 Music Player feels dull due to the Xpress Music player in 6300 and the functionality of the Music Player in 6300 is better by far. The 6233's screen is nowhere close to 6300's screen...that is expected though because 6233 have less colour...it's an older phone.
The 6300 may not have 3G, Video Sharing and VGA video recording but give and take the enhancements 6300 have, 6300 comes out on top.
Finally the general text in 6233 is small and there's no way to increase the font size.
Text is bigger, more legible and can easily be read on 6300 without putting the phone up in your face.
I have gotten so use to the 6300's slimness that walking around for the entire day with the bulky 6233 made me feel different.
I hope this post from me will be the end to the rivalry between these two phones.
I think this phone is great. Not only is it stylish but its also lightweight and has some great features on there...shame about the memory size though expandable memeory is always good though.
You cannot adjust that feature. It's automatic. If your phone doesn't do it automatically then something is wrong with the phone.
It works for my phone everytime.
I had that problem too when I first got my 6300...when you use the voice record the recording was so low even though it was playing through the loudspeaker.
I was able to fix this problem by upgrading to 5.50.
With 5.0 and lower firmwares, the recording stayed on level 1 even when you maxed it to level 10.
In 5.50 the volume level was adjusted and now level 10 sounds like level 10.
The recordings get loud once you upgrade.
I now have a 6233 in my possession and I have been testing the volume loudness to compare it with my 6300.
The 6233 is a loud phone but I have mixed views.
MP3 songs I downloaded from the internet is LOUDER on my 6300. Built in Nokia tones are louder on 6233.
The 6300 speaker seems to pump more treble because music videos I encoded in mono, sounds more like stereo on my 6300 while they sound very deep on 6233. When these music videos play on 6233 you easily know the audio is mono.
I'm still testing so I will post more findings soon over these two controversial rivals.
To OMG BLAH BLAH:
Yes I agree. If you don't play games you get a long battery life. This applies to all phones.
i hav this phone in black and the sound quality is good at first it was low but as i was palying more songs it seemed to come louder
i found out that the battery is good if u dont play games like me lol as i dont play them anymore the phone battery seems to be really good

Hi to all, i'm gonna buy this Nokia 6300 Tomorrow, though i heard a lot about the battery problems but hope to find it good. My question concerns the upgrading of the firmware, how we can do that and also why? is it because of the low volume of rings?
thanks to all, i appreciate all your comments
What a slim Dream Piece this phone . All the best features which make Nokia different to other are present in it
Go and pick this Slim Dream
well don't u ever under estimate the power of SE coz SE is a meticulous company with every detail they make them special and not like nokia they say it's 1.3 MP and it looks like a VGA ... uggggghhhh ...
okay well, when i record songs and whatnot, its so quiet, even if i turn up the volume all the way and put it close to my computer or something it still ends up being quiet,
is there anyways that it could be louder?
