This is fantastic phone. I've had mine 2 weeks and I love it. Intuitive to use and with a 2GB microSD its brilliant, a phone ipod memory stick all in one. I even love how bulky it is with the crystal case on, like a swiss army nife!
LEECIPHER - this has dedicated music keys, so essentially is more user friendly if u r a common music player user. this has 1.3 mp camera the other only has vga(epic difference).
it shames nokia though that the supposedly better performing phone has not as good battery to the model that is aimed at a cheaper target market. that is embarrasing
otherwise no real difference
Hey im Lee from Kenya and I was asking if there's practically any real difference between the 5300 and 5200 for someone who just wants one to call and listen to music coz the specs look the same to me?Please holla back coz I wanna cop one.THANX XD
Rai - see for yourself: http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=1862&idPhone2=1800
i think the 6300 is a bit more of a femanine phone in my opinion. it would be good for her she would like it
Sarah - you navigated your way to this page passing THROUGH the FUNCTIONS! http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_5300-1718.php
-functions(for the class it is under)
-battery not wonderful
-sound on full volume not wonderful
-max ringing volume distorts, level lower hard to hear
-camera below avg.
3: scroll to the NIGHT MODE ON selection
4: press select
it goes green because that is the colour camera phones go when there is bad lighting. turn a light on when u take a photo.
No Name - same as sarah. u had to have navigated ur way here via the FUNCTIONS page, look! here is a comparison (btw, moto wins, in functionality but moto suck) http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone2=1646&idPhone1=1718
Brandon - come on man surely u can look up how many songs u can fit on a 1gb card. if u r using this phone souly for music then what are you doing here. Sony Ericsson have made themselves known with the walkman range, choose the right one and u cant go wrong with music phones like walkman. on a tight budget? so u choose nokia over sony ericsson there are plenty of sony ericssons that are cheaper then this with still better music players.
face it nokia arent a great music capable phones, they are creating competition so that they can actually stay in the market.
Shanny - thats a stupid question, name a modern phone(produced in the last year) that does not have T9(dictionary)
Ira - you want a slider with good battery?? bahah no such thing. same with flips, never have the batttery capabilities that brick(no form) phones have. u want an excellent battery on a slider go 6288 or S.E w580
anna - yeah i study science but that is when it reaches terminal velocity sweetheart. ur expierment is something like dropping a tank and a golfball of the eifel tower they are both going to reach 9.8m/s (terminal velocity) and travel the same speed to the ground, we are talking a meter drop here, cant reach terminal velcoity if it is light so being a heavy phone it will be reaching terminal velocity faster then the lighter phone hence hitting the ground harder because the lightweight phone cant pick up as much speed as the heavier did in the space and time that is given. checkmate.
no name who wrote this "Poor bass elements.."
u think its an ipod or something?? a boss vehicle soundsystem?? jeez give it a rest man.
Victor - this is why they install a camera for you so u dont have to lug around a big hunk of rubbish attached with the phone. it has a camera that works well just use it with that
anymore indepth questions relating to this post?
Can you attach a remote covert camera to the 5300 phone. If so what type of camera can you attach to it?
i've had this phone a few days now and personaly find it good value for money and a good phone...thank god i dont take notice of people like ' okedokee ' and I Hate 5300' who cant even act grown up and write proper sensible opinions!!
undathaground- it doesnt matter how much mass an object has as to how fast it falls when dropped. all that matters is the wind resistance and friction.
ie. a lightweight object will fall to the ground with the same acceleration (9.8m/s/s) and therefore the same velocities as a heavier object.
just so you know
I'm planning to buy this model on sunday,but upon reading all your comments..I'm having an amvibalent feeling rigth now.
All i want is a sliding phone with a high quality battery and a great size of memory.Can u recommend me another nokia unit?
thanks for helping,
Today I am going to buy this incredible phone.I am going to buy the black and white one which in my opinion is the best.How much songs approx. can i put in a 1gb micro sd flash memory card ?
what do you suggest to buy? a Motorola KRZR K1, or the Nokia 5300 (in terms of durability, the GSM frequency-bands the cellphone has access to, battery life, ease-of-use, OS-ease-of-use, features, Bluetooth capability, Bluetooth user-friendliness, access to the different Bluetooth accessories out there, the things you are able to do with the Bluetooth-wireless-technology on the cellphone, etc).
If you want to replace your cracked screen DIY, here is the video that you may need to watch first.
One week after I got the Nokia 5300. On August 24 2007, the screen cracked. I don't know when and how it happened. I always put the phone on my pocket before I am sure there is nothing else in my pocket. It's Nokia's product flaw and we customers pay its shame bill.
hi there! Is 5300 have a night mode when recording or taking a video? And why is that it turned green background when im taking or capturing images on my camera especially at night? help me with this problem with my 5300 tnx....
hey. can u tell me abt its functions?n all its pros n cons. how many yrs can it last n how long is da warranty?
hi undatheground : thanx for your advice but i was thinking to give her NK 3110 classic, which is having the
similar kind of features like 6300 yes the difference is in camera, 3110classic have 1.3megapixal camera but i haven't use this phone if you can help me out with the proper details as compared to 6300 like battrey back up, music plyer and other features.
i have the red 5300 and i have dropped it a few times - nothing more than a few scratches wich are hardly noticable.
another great thing about this phone is that u can change the colour whenever u want really, it can be green pink purple black grey orange and red. i have seen them all at phone stores and its good to change them because sometimes the rubber goes black.
Stephon - u can record videos. certinatley. but what was the rest of your post? about notes, i didnt understand
Rai - a phone for ur girlfriend: 6300. its new its similar to 6233 and the 6300 is really really snazzy. it has all the features too. 2mp cam, mp3, everythin(though i dont no if it has a memory card slot., might have to look that up)
