There are 2 differences. First of all the 6301 comes with 30MB of internal memory (the original 6300 comes with 9MB) and secondly it has WLAN which is an acronym for Wireless Local Area Network.
Unfortunately, the WLAN update for this phone can be very misleading as it's sole purpose is for VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). The downside is that not many providers offer VoIP so one can waste money buying this phone. However, if the WLAN was data based rather than voice, it could be used for surfing the internet wirelessly bypassing your regular GPRS/EDGE. The best thing about data based WLAN is that it's much faster than GPRS & EDGE and free!
Those two minor updates isn't influencing enough to make me upgrade. The thing is the original 6300 have become so popular and a bestseller that Nokia wanted to extend the sales streak.
Omar, my advice is to stick to the original 6300 for 2 reasons, lower price and lower battery consumption as the WLAN feature will drain batteries no matter which phone or how good that phone's battery is.
the difference is that instead of 6300 its "6301" and that's the only difference the number "1" at the end...
hope that helps you alot :)
Hi, my brother wants to buy this mobile but he saw the 6301 it looks just the same, and he wants to know what is the diffrence between this mobile and the 6301.
My cousin picked up one of these phones...in the sea. Left it to dry. Put it together... and never work!!! bwahahahaha
My cousin picked up one of these phones...in the sea. Left it to dry. Put it together, and its been working great for a couple of months now. Thats build quality
this phone is superb!!! and you guys are wasting your time talking nonsense!!! its only your opinion what is asked not for you people to broadcast you arguments!!!
I think you are spoiling the 6300 forum with your personal conflicts...
On-topic: has anyone already seen the new 6300 in an all-black version? Does it have the same quality as the classical black+silver one?
If someone asks us to help them decide between 2 or more phones then that's a different scenario.
I agree with Syam's post. I truly don't understand why some people must underestimate our opinions about brands and espessially Nokia. I'm wondering... Two days ago LG KS20 was first in voting. In three days it fell down 0.25 points. WHY? Do you want my opinion. Because people that support Nokia voted again for N95, and added some "1" to LG. It's funny but also a little bit sad...
I prefer to read the excellent reviews of GSM Arena and not to some posts here. My opinion remains the same. The "Slim Finn" is a good phone with very dissapointing battery life and (only for me) not so easy to click buttons.
I used to help people with problems or queries on many occasions with this phone and other phones I owned and NOT once did I say stick to this brand. All of this started when Sony Erisson and Motorola fanatics started going into Nokia forums and try to put down Nokia.
Even if the persons who toted other brands weren't fanatics of those brands, they still shouldn't be stating which brand people should choose. Things like those will cause an arguments.
I just want to warn you guys about one thing. this fone really is weak. i was lying on it once when it was on my bed and the next time i looked at my screen it was cracked in the form of a big Y and the 3 portions of this Y only show rainbow colours and no info or text or pictures any more. im gonna buy a sony ericsson again!!!!!
This forum is to state opinions on a particular phone model, the 6300 in this case so I don't see the need to fuss over other brands...I didn't start anything, it's the person or persons who talked about SE's being better.
Don't come in a forum and promote another brand. Each forum is to state likes/dislikes and to assist others with whatever problems they may have.
Anybody here want to talk about SONY ERICSSON the GO to the Sony Ericsson forum and avoid any arguments by coming here.
i bought a nokia 6300 last 2 months ago
and it was a china phone,
but guess what the cam for the china phone is better than the original one...lol
@WLAN and OJ
Yeah but that was how 6300 is advertised with those words that OJ wrote, anyway this SE and Nokia war should stop now
The mobile is very sleek and user friendly.But the problem is that the battery never lasts even for a day even though the user is leat.
Plz ne 1 ans me, why N 6300 dont give me access to gmail, by demanding "enable ur browsers cookis"?
Hey guys, does this phone support the A2DP profile since I have a bluetooth stereo headset & wanna use it when I buy this phone? Also, I have a query for all those who use the Nokia PC Suite.. about the content copier, can we backup content (contacts, messages, etc.) from a symbian based phone to a phone using an operating system like 6300 or 6233? I've used the content copier successfully between nokia symbian based phones but am not sure if it'll work from one operating system to another. If someone has tried it, please let me know. I'm looking at purchasing this phone or the 6233 very soon. Thanks a ton in advance!
Don't worry about it, I broke my USB cover too. It's very fragile but at least the bottom of the phone doesn't look ugly without the cover.
What is CSV abbreviated for ? Maybe I can help if I knew exactly what you are talking about.
i jut got my 6300!...its awesome!
one thing... i broke the USB port cover. it's just hard to remove without forcing or a help of a small screw driver.
im also looking for a way to automatically transfer my contacts from my old Motorola phone. i know i can simply transfer using my SIM. i just have to do it in sevral batch.
i read a few things about doing CSV method. I have actually exported them already into it.
Any thoughts on this?
