6233 has better Camera Results
better Louder Speakers
slightly better D-Pad Keypad
High messaging capacity
Battery Life is slightly better
it has all those over 6300 but 6233 has 500 contacts storage, were as 6300 has 1,000
sim cards usually hold 500 or 200
so if you dont mind 500 contacts storage get 6233
if you want 1,000 get 6300
ohh im stuck in confusion again!!
whether to buy 6233 or 6300??
which has better battery, more msg storing capacity, camera results, and other features.. hope u guys can help..
I think it is not a bad phone as many people reviews thy said all about memory card i don believe i bought nokia 6300. it works very well.
i got this phone for some months now(im from jamaica) da phone yah bad nuh bombo... it good and no matter how much times it falls it still works properly its very strong.. overall its i really good phone... my money was well spent
I do regret buying 6300 its a microwave with a cheap battery.
DEEPANSHU, 09 Aug 2008I Wanted to buy Nokia 6300 from long time but when i browsed GSMarena i found a lot of reviews... moreTo DEEPANSHU:
I have never witnessed for myself the memory card glitch. However, it's said that a few batches manufactured last year had a missing transistor. I believe that story because even Nokia's official disccusion forum have complaints about it.
I have only heard of one memory card glitch complaint since 2008 (right here from GSMArena) so my analysis on the situation is that the glitch was a problem of 2007 mainly.
What I have witnessed is the restarting problem but for me it only started when I upgraded my firmware (phone operating software) to version 5.50. My phone came with version 5.00 and I had it running for over 3 months with no malfunctioning, no restart etc.
I upgraded to firmware 6.01 after and the restarting problem cooled down drastically BUT it still restarts when it feels like once in a while.
The restarting thing is weird because it's not like the phone restarted everyday even when I had 5.50. When I first upgraded to 5.50 it worked fine for a week and then the restarting happened then it stopped after about 2 days and worked fine until about a month.
The thing with firmware 6.01 is that even when it restarts it's just for a portion of the day and then it works fine until about 2 months or so.
I believe that when you manually update your firmware there are some side effects oppossed to when Nokia themselves install the firmwares. The reason I say this is because normally the restarting problem happens ONLY AFTER you update the phone's operating software...at least for me.
It's a good phone overall and I DON'T regret buying it. My ONLY complaint is that my headset only worked for about 2 weeks and NEVER again so I'm yet to hear how the radio sounds. I'm NOT really a headset fan so it doesn't really bother me to that. If you are a headset fan you might want to keep testing the headset on a daily basis until your warranty expires. Seems as if the headset bug only happens to a few of them because only one other person complained about the headset from this forum while 80% of the people complain about battery life.
Battery life for me is fine, I got 6 days out of it on 2 occassions just to see how long it could last on a single charge. I made at least two 5 mins. calls per day and received a least 1-3 calls per day as well as sent text messages every day right through until the 6th day on both occasions.
As you can see, battery life is NOT a problem for me.
I say to you BUY the phone. It's a good investment overall and the drawbacks are minor if any at all.
Furthermore the screen is the absolute BEST in the world, no LCD monitor, no HDTV and no other phone screen can compare as said by many people...not even 2008 phones released today as said by me (smile). The screen is unbelievable and has to be seen to understand. Someone said the screen is crystal clear and cannot be beat...I totally agree.
Personally I think this is the BEST 6xxx series in terms of materials, screen and reliable no-nonsense functionally.
Get the best selling phone for 2007 and enjoy the experience.

THANKS IN ADVANCE !!PLS REPLY
Who the hell said that this is a bad cell? I had w810i and after that I bought this one. I was a die hard hater of Nokia, but after this set, it feels like HEAVEN. Its the best. I mean sms management, music player, resolution, camera(if taken in light conditions), the design - EVERYTHING IS JUST EXCELLENT ABOUT THE PHONE.... Just one problem, it needs a lot of juice, meaning a lot of charging, else its just FANTAFABULOUS. You can give this set a go without having any second thoughts in your mind.
ayaz, 08 Aug 2008one more question.. can application/games be installed on memory card?? thnxYes you can
