To the user who said it can only play low quality MP4 you are forgetting the HIGHER quality H.264 codec it supports which is also known as HD/Blueray format. I even have high quality 3GP files which looks better than some MP4 files on my Nokia 6230, as high a quality as 512kbps.
The 6233 may be better in some areas, 3G bandwidth etc. BUT the phonebook doesn't allow more than 500 contacts and that's a problem for me. My present phone (6230) has over 500 contacts (about 700) so the 6233 would be of NO USE to me as I wouldn't have been able to transfer all my contacts if I were to get the 6233. Regardless of multimedia features we must all remember that it's still a phone and the telephony areas come first while multimedia comes second...that's why I have been waiting for the 6300.
Went from a W800i SE to this phone, was very disappointed by the quality of the music through the headphones, Sony ericsson is miles ahead, also doing without the walkman functionality is difficult to get used to. Also the picture quality in darker lighting conditions is bad. Battery life is not that good. But on the good side it's a very beautiful phone and the colors are amazing. If you are someone just looking for a pretty phone to make calls and receive messages get this phone, otherwise i'd go for the just as pretty w880i...
just bought a 6300, comparing with 6233 on function, it's worse. It can only play low quality MP4 movie, it's pity for so good screen. For someone wish to hear music, it's just so so, can't match with 6233. This modle, the highlight point are just 16M screen and slim.
Recently got this phone, I dont think battery is that big a problem. Infact the phone is too good in almost all features
i have read some off the opinions saying the battery is very bad ,hws the overall perfoemance of the phone
its actually quite a good little phone. mind you i would rather have kept my old nokia 6230i.
i do have a few complaints.
-battery life is quite low compared to the nokia 6230i
-usb port is rly hard to access
-supplied head set is how you say...below acceptable quality
-volume during calls w or w/o headset is quite low even at max vol.
-camera photo quality is v.low during low light. goes kind of grainy.
-although not about the actual phone, i'd like to say that nokia has less than acceptable customer service.
other than that some features that i DID like are:
-camera in high light is good quality
-music player is ok
-no need to buy expensive nokia branded cable for data transfer
-can use it as a remote in applications such as ms powerpoint
-classy themes/nice GUI
-screen brighter and clearer than the nokia 6230i
overall a pretty good phone, its rly a wysiwyg phone. as in what you see is what you get. a classy phone that does what it says it will do at a resonable price.
value for money. pros: 16.7 million colors, display is amazing, great loudspeaker,
cons: camera flash, usb data cable are not there, auto focus is not available
You need a fine file to take abou 1/2mm off the plastic end of 6300 battery, it will fit and last longer.
Really a stylish mobile......but really got hurt by this battery,its weak. Cant dare to switch on my FM.......ETC
Agreed "chand me daag hota hai"
6300 mey bhi daag hai.......thats battery
hi can anybody tell me if this phone is good for listening to music, does it drain the battery life a lot while listening to music??
If this phone isn't good for music then im planning to get the SE z710i. I am also probably going to scratch my phone a few times so im wondering which phone should i get? nokia 6300 or SE z710i
i guess its teh size that makes it so attractive..
but the problem is the battery life... since the screen is min millions of colors.. and since the loudspeaker is loud, battery dies off quick
just buy a 6300, but little disappoint, 320x240 MP4 movie can not be played on 6300, but no problem on 6233. after I tune down to 200kbit, it work. some themes work fine in 6233, also not work on 6300. I don't know why, they are same S40 V3, why is different?
about 10 minutes to send a mp3? that IS a lot! just wondering, was he/she using a motorola v3? it has the slooooowwwest bluetooth ever made (had one), next followed by the lg chocolate (had one too). Speed differs between mobile manufacturers.
It took me less than 20 seconds to send a 4-5mb mp3 file to a friend, via bluetooth, he was using a nokia 6131 and I was using the nokia 6300, then sent the same file to another friend, he had a SE w300, took like 40 seconds to complete.
Can anyone help me out please? I think somethin's wrong with my bluetooth (6300) 'coz it takes forever to send files to other phones. My phone was mocked as stylish but ineffective by my friends coz it took me like 10 minutes to send a 3.4MB file. -Carlo
This phone is brilliant!! I work in a phone shop so i get to see all the latest handsets and have a play around with them but this one is a brilliant handset if u like basic but with many features on! Everythin u see is what u get, theres no hidden files u have to find, its one easy menu and ur in!
Iv had many diff phones such as nokn95 samsghu600 sek810i there all the best quality phones out but i still stick to my little cute 6300!! u wont b dis-o-pointed!
Batt does only last bout 2 days but as with any phone the more u use the features on it or leave bluetooth on its going to drain it! memory cards are well cheap at the mo for it! 14.99 for sandisk 1gb!!! lets u have 3000 pictures! the 2mp camera is pretty dam god aswell!!
Hope if been some help!!
this phone battery does not even last for a day if you listen to music and stuff BElieve me just google it and you will know it
