If we're allowed an automotive metaphor, the Nokia 6303 classic is one of those handsets that will get you from A to B without burning rubber at the traffic lights. It's just how most phones are used: voice call cruising with an occasional red light jump to keep things interesting. If you're not a street racer that eats 8 megapixel and breathes 7.2Mbps, the 6303 classic will be just fine for snapping a photo on the go or browsing the web.
You probably already know where this is going and what the Nokia 6303 is all about - it will bail you out of a tough spot when you need more than calling and texting, but power users won't be pleased. But hey, at this price point, were you really expecting the Bugatti Veyron of mobile phones?
The looks of the Nokia 6303 classic are quite reminiscent of the 6600 slide and fold duo. Nonetheless, it stands on its own two feet as a phone and the metallic body is a joy to hold.
Before you go on reading, just remember who this phone is aimed at and learn to live with the fact that it doesn't even have 3G.
