Hey ppl the battery mentioned in the specification on this site is BL-4C which is quite old. Now Nokia 6300 is being sold with BL-5C which is more powerful and lasts longer. So plzzz before buying this model make sure that u hav battery BL-5C.
Some of you people need to stop complaining about the battery. It's getting annoying now.
I was able to get 3hr. 39mins. on a straight call until the battery died. That is EVEN MORE than the specified talk time!!!
I would agree with you if it applied to an expensive phone but as the 6300 is so cheap it doesn't bother me. This phone is even cheaper than what the 3310 was retailing at when it first came out.
I find it interesting that people complain about the battery. All you need to do is calibrate it properly by charging it all through the night when you first get your phone, it's just like your laptop or iPod battery.
The 6300 is a brilliant phone in my opinion.
@the person having trouble with the USB cable,
All you need to do is use bluetooth, it solves the problem entirely..well at least for me as I am on a mac with built-in bluetooth.
haha thats a stupid comment, u cant sacrifice battery pack, just to have a good looking phone
battery pack is the backbone of a phone, if your battery pack is poor, all the good features will look suck, because it cannot handle its features
this phone is whacked
There's no such thing as a perfect phone. Every phone has it's downsides. This one happens to be the battery.
When I had my Sony Ericsson T610 four years ago that had the worst sim card holder I had ever seen. It was an absolute joke. Poorly designed and made. The joystick was also a nuisance. I've never used a Sony Ericsson since.
Every Samsung phone I've had a go on has had terrible software/operating system. It's hard to navigate and just frustrates you in the end.
The less said about Motorola phones the better.
With Nokia phones they've always been easy to use and are designed well.
The battery problem is a small sacrifice to make for a phone that has brilliant features and a quality design. The price is also nice too.
I don't see how your battery life drops after 5-8 texts because I have sent more than 20 throughout the day and my battery was still full until I started making some calls in the night. Either way it still lasted me until the following day.
The speaker isn't so strong for ringing BUT stronger for music playback and very strong for video playback.
i want to ask about the speakers.
its speakers are stereo???
and they are strong??
I bought my phone just 4 days back. I have observed that when i charge it, the batter indicator keeps moving. I have charged it for nearly 6-8 hrs on the 1st day but it still moves. Even on the 2nd day of using i charged it for 2.5 hrs, it was still moving. How is this possible? How long do i need to charge my phone?
I just bought this phone its been heavily discounted for Christmas I do agree the battery runs out very quickly my last phone was a 6330 I would normally get 3 days from it.
I was playing a game on the phone and it ran out of power, on the plus side it does charge very quickly, its packed full of great features, blue tooth 2 megapixel camera, fab display the phone itself looks great feels very solid.
if your an sms person, this phone is not for you, after a couple of tex about 5 or 8, the power bar is easily lessen and later it going down really fast
too bad for me i have this one, the battery is a nightmare
I understand the battery problems, at first, you really will hate the phone, maybe because the phone is new that's why u use it most of the time, but as the day goes on,the use of the phone will be lessen, only the basic features were use, like txt/call.
Im from the Philippines, and I bought an adaptor for the charger, now it charge 4 only 1hr, then I am having problems on wearing out the battery, knowing that the battery life is short, now the phone last for 2 days, and I need to charge the Phone whenever Im going somewhere, and I can say that Im very satisfied with it.
For those who have questions just email me, thanks
I even like nokia 6600 rather than this 6300, the battery is is very very poor and the camera sucks, only good at daylight but in night, so ugly
its a very new n good model . i ever seen this kind of mobile before,good look n very good keypad but am not satisfying its GPRS settings n configuration,but am happy with this mobile
thnking you urs welwisher
i need help in charging the unit. I just bought this unit yesterday ang i wasnt able to check on the battery charging. Im not sure if the package should include the usual charger that we use using 220V (electric socket type) but what i purchased only includes the unit, headset, usb, another battery inserted on a desktop charger and manual. Is the only way to charge the battery through desktop only or the usual charger (electric socket type) can also be used. Did the seller forgot/did not include that charger? help pls i cant use the phone =(
