My friend, the 6300 is already a legend. It's the top selling phone for 2007. Check news sources, they are a finger tip away.
Now tell me, if 1/2 the world experienced all the problems that some of you people in here complain about, how on earth would it become a bestseller.
After the 6300 was announced, a Nokia representative said: "Like an impeccably tailored suit, the Nokia 6300 is perfectly proportioned, always in style, but best appreciated for its attention to detail," said Kai Oistamo, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Mobile Phones, Nokia. "The Nokia 6300 has been developed for consumers who want a mobile phone that offers an uncompromised set of features with highly desirable, sophisticated design. We are confident that the Nokia 6300 will be among our best selling models in 2007."
And they were right.
I have said over and over that I am not biased toward phone models. Despite what you people may think, I actually took up for a particular SE phone back in 2005.
I always back up my chat. Here is the excerpt to show that I won't try to discourage people from buying whichever phone they want.
Look for the long post with my name.
?? i dont believe a bad word OJ says about SE, check the 6230 forum and see i beat him into saying SE are better but he keep on going on about Nokia sales and crap like that
i own a SE W850i and i disagree what OJ says about SE
iv just come realise that when i got to know him
im NOT Biast against Phone companies!
thats just insanity..which i am not
2 against many ... if u r talking abt the statistics.. thats the statistics about battery life..
Old nokia phones are legends.. i have 3310,8210,8310 and 8250 whicha re legends of nokia...and i would still pay good money for an 8310 ...
Mate 6300 is never gonna be legend.
Just becoz u had bad experiences with SE doesnot mean they are bad.....
@ Dani ...
am sorry but just shut up..
becoz these many days you were saying original_jamaican is correct.
I respect you how ever i guess... we need to stop blaming one another.People are entitled for their opinions.
Hope you understand it seems u r the only person who is actually trying comprehend wat i am telling.
Here is an example to back up my statement about me not being biased. This is a post I left on a SE forum back in 2005. I actually took up for this particular SE model when others put it down.
It is a KNOWN FACT that Nokias are built to last.
Everybody in the world knows that Nokias can endure bad treatment and water and still survive. I have seen and heard of so many experiences of Nokias falling in water and they worked like new after they dried.
A friend of mine says his Nokia 3410 fell in his toilet twice and it gave no problems when it dried. The only disgusting thing about that statement is I was holding his phone in my hand when he told me.
Another friend accidentally washed his 3310 in his pants and didn't realise until he hung his pants on the clothes line. He showed me the phone after it dried and it worked like new.
Another girl in some other country said she have seen a Nokia dropped in a swimming pool and it worked fine once it dried.
A friend of mine had a Sony Ericsson W810 and water caught it and it stopped working. He had to get a new phone immediately. Total waste of money. All that money gone down the drain. So tell me people, why should I support SE and risk wasting my money ?
I will admit, SE makes some very nice looking phones. Their phones are eye catching but substance is more important to me. I would rather go with a durable phone even if it doesn't look very attractive rather than go with a pretty phone which won't last.
SE phones aren't the only weaklings. Same goes for many Motorolas too. Samsungs on the other hand is durable, based on what I have seen.
The reason why I talk about SE in here is because some of you people love to mention SE. If SE is NOT mentioned then I won't talk against SE. Stick to the purpose of this forum and talk ONLY about the NOKIA 6300. This forum is a forum to comment on the NOKIA 6300 and help others who may have problems with the NOKIA 6300. Simply as that.
To the HATERS:
As I said before I got 3 hrs. 39 mins. worth of talk time out of my phone. What is there to complain about.
Also, I said I would never discourage anybody from buying a SE phone. I'm NOT biased.
KKK, you probably aren't intelligent enough to realise this, but As SYAM said, this forum is supposed to be a forum to discuss the NOKIA 6300 phone, NOT a forum to discuss other brands and which phone is better than 6300. I too have said this before...which is why I said if people in here don't throw other brands in other people's faces, then that alien brand won't get dissed.
KKK, I have merely stated what I have experienced with SE phones. I have NOT added or subtracted anything from my experiences. Since you seem to be ignorant to certain things, sometimes SE and Motorola fans come in here and try to create mischief. KKK I am not the one starting wars, it's other people who try to convince others which outside brands are better. I would never give up my life for any material thing.
SYAM, I'm NOT the only person who talks about getting good battery performance from my 6300. WAZOMBA said it over and over and others too. Search the forum to jog your memory.
The BOTTOMLINE is I have no issues with my phone. END OF STORY!
Yes, i agree that Original Jamaican is a liar.. He never admitted that 6300 has got a very poor battery life.
And the even worse thing about this man is that, he is very much criticizing SE's which has gone farther and farther. He is too cruel with the words he choose in describing SE's!
Definitely not just a simple issue to laugh at.
Hey you Original_Jamaican, as much as possible take this issue seriously because this criticism of yours has gone so far..
This is not a joke so keep warning yourself not to do those stuffs again..
I thot this was a forum where people tried talking abt how they feel about a particular phone, this place is becoms like one place where people vent their anger on one another.
i guess u have the only 6300 which is got good battery life.. either that or our measuring gauge is worng.
No pun intended,,,
but the facts are facts.... and life is not statistics..
there are intangible stuff...
i try gmail.com on this set last day, but cant give me access. it says 'ur enable browsers cookies'. Moto c261 is also say this words. where the prob? on set or site?
ny 1 help me with ans?
Please learn the meaning of the word bastard before using it!
If people don't come here and throw other brands (like SE) in people face then I won't have another brand to ANTOGONIZE.
I have had enough, seen enough and heard of enough bad experiences with SE to know that the build quality isn't good. Furthermore, SE doesn't pay much attention to the telephony department. Great example is K700 compared to 6230. I won't elaborate on those 2 rivals. In the end though 6230 lives on while K700 is buried 6 feet under.
I don't have any problems with my 6300 NOT even the battery! The other day I charged my 6300 then used it hard for the day which included making and receiving quite a few calls, sending and receiving quite a few texts, taking around 5 photos, playing a video clip among other things. I decided to use it moderately after that and got 2 more days out of it. What is there to complain about. It's so funny that the things that people complain about I don't experience rhem with my mobiles. One opinionist complained that after a full charge, 30 mins. of talking kills their battery. I have been on a call for 1 hour without a drop in battery life. Another person complained that after 200 messages the phone won't accept anymore. I have 1096 messages in my mailbox as I write this and I haven't received a low message warning up to now. Somebody also complained that after a full charge, sending 5-8 SMS results in a drop in battery life. I have sent over 20 text messages throughout an entire day and went to bed with a full charge, absolutely NO decrease in battery life. I could go on and on and on.
The bottomline is I don't have any problems with my battery life or anything with the phone...at least nothing to complain about and I'm going to state it as it is.
The biggest complaint in this forum is about the battery life, well I have gotten 3 hrs. 39 mins. worth of talk time and I strongly believe I can get more because I used the phone for quite a few minutes before I received the call.
3 hrs. 39 mins. is MORE talk time than what Nokia states so how can I complain about the battery life ?
If I'm biased toward a company it's because of bad experiences. Regardless of YOU PEOPLE accusing me of being biased toward Sony Ericsson I'm NOT going to discourage anybody from buying their phones...I'm not like that. Peace.
Yes I'm always here to support Nokia...as the preinstalled audio file on 6300 says: "You are always here".
That song is in reference to me...'Always Here'.
did anyone read my previous post?
face it people there no Perfect Phone in this world and No Perfect Machine
SE and Nokia are two different companies altoghether different products they make they have advantages over eachother and disadvatages its just Life......
and Original_Jamaican is good at saying good stuff about NOKIA all the time but when it comes to SE its bad, yes i know you own Nokia and Proud but SE is a good company in their way, i own both Nokia and SE
and i dont Complain
so please dont be Biast !!
No machine is perfect similarly No phone is perfect .
Battery life is something thats not greta in this phone.There are times when i have felt people have went ahead acted as total 6300 fanatics its their choice.
Thanks for understanding.
Hi!! Good day Gsmarena users!!! I just bought my nokia 6300. I really loved it the design?features?performance? its very great. For those people who are wondering about the life span of their battery it really depends upon your usage. Like for example if your message alert tone is an mp3 tone it really consumes the life span of the battery, bluetooth is another battery life consuming and vibra also. I suggest you minimize one of the functions of your phone and your battery will prolonged its life span. Thank you for finding time reading my opinion God bless each and everyone of you.
to mr. Popocatepetl and others who own this beautiful phone:
please, i ask you, what do you mean with "very poor" battery life? how many days in a regular use, i say calls, messages and little use of other features ?
i'm very interested in buying this phone, it's small and so georgeous :)
i just want a phone to make calls and send/receive messages and must have a schedule ok, nothing more. what do you advise me, small, with alloy all over the body and just to calls and messages?
glad to read a response,
