Two more things I want to add, I wouldn't expect the 6300's battery life to last as long as other phones because it has a very bright backlit lighting system which is so bright that it works marvels as a flashlight/torch with or without a wallpaper selected.
Secondly, with a 16.7 million high resolution display did you really expect the battery to last as long as phones with a 256k display, come on, be realistic. With regular use of 'most' features, the screen is constantly on and the backlight is running...for the most part so therefore, the battery WILL drain more quickly. When you combine a VERY POWERFUL backlit screen along with the millions of colours and high resolution, there's no way the phone will last for more than a day using the features continuosly.
Another smart opinionist shares the same view saying he didn't expect such a high quality 16 million colour screen to give much battery life, so he's NOT surprised at how fast the battery drains. He said he purchased the phone because it's a beauty in every way.
Regardless of that, myself, Wazomba and others have stated getting good battery life out of it. Wazomba says he gets 5 days sending text and making a few calls everyday...which is what a phone is used primarily for anyway.
The N95 battery doesn't last long either and it has a higher capacity battery than 6300. According to posts that I read, the N95 drains even more quickly than 6300.
These 16 million colour screen phones are the FIRST Nokia phones which doesn't give a very long battery life and the POWERFUL HIGH QUALITY SCREENS are the reason why. Simply as that.
guyz i just buy 6300 today .... but i shoked cuz i think N72 got higher sound .... maybe 6300 got better sound but too low ..........
any way i wait ur opinon about sound :) ... ty with all my respect !!
Like this phone because:
1) 16 MILLION colours!!!
2) very nice baclighting
3) worth it for its price
Don't like it because:
1) no landscape mode in photos
2) few memory + no memory card is given with package
I am really confused if I should buy n70 or this phone. I think n70 is a better phone. What do you think ppl?
All the complaints you made about your 6300 is the total opposite for my 6300.
My sound during calls is perfect, not strange; and there's no cracking nor hissing. The sound is VERY PLEASANT, CLEAR and PLEASING to the ear even WITHOUT the VOICE CLARITY feature enabled!!!
In general you CANNOT compare a 3.2MP with a 2MP camera. Nevertheless, my 6300's camera takes better photos in comparison to K750/W800.
All in all the 6300 is an excellent upgrade to the legendary 6230...as confirmed by many 6230 owners who have had there 6230 for several years and never upgrade due to no better replacement all these years...until now. I'm one of those people too (smile).
If you read through the reviews you will see that more than half the opinionists here say ONLY positive things about this phone. Probably the best of all the positive comments is the person called 'DILA' who said: "I think the Nokia 6300 is the best thing since sliced bread".
I'm completely happy with my Nokia 6300.
i own a 6300, last year I possessed an SEk800.
which one is better?
sek800: far better battery if features are used, you can browse on internet, listen music take great pictures with 3.2mp camera and still last for 3 days with SEk800.
soundquality during calls: I find this better with k800, the 6300 cracks, very strange not pleasant sound.
camera: sek800 very good, 6300 is horrible
screen: 6300 is better obviously.
looks: k800 too big, tore my pants with it
6300 good size, looks good
in conclusion I think I have downgraded with burin a 6300.
next time I will buy a phone I will look at battery performance in combination with features usage, camera performance, soundquality during calls.
my advice: DONT BUY, pay more and get a better phone
SE are not that fragile i had a w700i which was a part of a very rude accident.. it was in piece.. jsu put it together and started workign perfectly.
That was a nice little comeback. Thanks for the humour (smile).
I didn't say that SE phones doesn't have good features, just that other factors puts Nokia ahead. You enjoy your SEs and I will enjoy my Nokias.
But please be careful not to drop your SE, they are more fragile than glass. Just looking out for you buddy, thank me for the warning later.
To ANDREA STACEY:
The Nokia 6300 is marketed by Nokia as a high end phone. It is CLEARLY BETTER than the 3500 classic. The only thing I see that the 3500 classic have over the 6300 is the phone book capacity at 2,000 contacts opposed to the 6300's 1,000 contact limit.
Let me break down the differences between both phones:
The 6300 has a 16,700,000 (16.7 Million) HIGH COLOUR screen. To top it off it has a QVGA screen resolution at 240x320 laced on a 2 inch screen. EVERYTHING on the 6300's screen looks OUTSTANDING! because The higher the colour depth and resolution, the sharper, more detailed, finer and realistic the images look. It's an amazing screen and you have to see it to believe it.
On the other hand, the 3500c has a 262,000 colour screen which is average these days. The resolution for the 3500c is 128 x 160 pixels which is now used in budget phones. Finally the screen is smaller at 1.8 inches. All in all the screen is just an ok one for the 3500 classic.
The 6300 is a bit slimmer but weighs 10 grams more.
Those are the main differences but the 3500 classic does have a higher capacity phone book, twice the amount of the 6300's phone book capacity. So, unless you know 2,000 persons and plan to store their phone numbers I suggest getting the 6300.
Sony Ericsson phones are FAR TOO WEAK in terms of build quality NOT TRUE . It's highly unlikely to see a SE phone being top phone of the year. MIGHT HAPPEN
Final thing, Nokia has been the NUMBER 1 leader in market sales for quite a few years and guess what, this year their sales have doubled!!! due to the 6300 (primary best seller) followed by the N95 and the E65. SOO ??? just becuase there Number 1..doesnt mean there the Best in everything ahahahah
I always back up my chat: Yh im up for it

I always back up my chat:
MP4 videos work fine on my 6300. Ensure you have v5.00 software installed on the phone. Also, try a different converter like Allok Video to 3G Converter. Once I converted a video in MP4 format and all I heard was the sound. I converted the same video in MP4 format using a different converter and both picture and sound was perfect on my 6300.
Some converters does a better job than others, I should know, I have used a lot of them.
Sometimes the phones aren't to be blamed, in some cases the converters are the culprit.
TOP phone of 2007 ???
what about Sony Ericsson's
there Better (Just)
