Nokia's slogan for the 6300 is "Simply beautiful - beautifully simple." The beauty comes from the sleek, classic design with stainless-steel surfaces, and the simplicity reflects the fact that this is an all-round kind of phone: not a smartphone, not 3G, but including all of the functionality that most people want. Sounds like a winner! Could Nokia finally be getting back to what it used to do best - a phone that does just what you want and does it well?
Certainly the phone looks good when you pick it up. It's like the early 6-series Nokia's: exclusive- and expensive-looking, practically designed with a good sized screen and functional keypad, yet updated for 2007 with a 5-way navigation button and high quality colour display. The size is perfect: it's very slim (just 11.7mm) and not too wide, and the weight is enough to make it feel solid and substantial, but not so much that it feels heavy. The keypad is a decent size and is easy to use. The display is exceptional: a high resolution 240 x 320 pixel display with an amazing 16 million colours. On the outside the 6300 ticks all the right boxes.
On the inside, the phone is equipped with all the features that a typical user would expect. The camera is 2 megapixels with an 8x digital zoom and with a video recording function. Enough for casual photography, but not brilliant. There's a music player and an FM radio. A standard Nokia headset is included in the sales package and support for a Bluetooth stereo headset is included. Memory for storing music is limited, with just 7.8 Mbytes of user memory, however you can expand the memory to a maximum of 2 Gbytes by buying a microSD card, which will give you as much memory as an iPod Nano. Both Bluetooth and USB connectivity are supported, and the phone has GPRS and EDGE for fast data downloads. Battery life is below average, which is often the case with superslim phones. The user interface is a standard Series 40 interface, that Nokia users will be used to, but with the latest enhancements. It's basically a very easy phone to use, with everything well thought out and some real attention to detail.
This is our favourite Nokia phone for a long time. It really is beautiful - quality just oozes out of the phone when you pick it up. The metallic finish completes the look, although this may show scratches if not treated carefully. Ergonomics and user-friendliness are good. The strange thing is that Nokia built their reputation with phones like this, but what have they been doing these past few years with their funky but unusable fashion-phones and their buggy brick-like smartphones? Welcome back Nokia! It was worth the wait!
Hi SELF RESPECTING GUYS (those that don't pollute this forum). My 6300 still doing good.(Thanx to Old Jamaican 4 the firmware update data.) Observed also that though battery life time is not that good, 'Low battery' time is a bit lengthy.
- This 4ne is also sleek & respectable both from the outside and inside.
- Its brushes shoulders with Nseries though it excels in thinness.
- Its key pad is cool & so soft to press.
- Not yet tried to view megapix resolution of its photos on pc. (I had some fotos from card I was formerly using in my 3110c & they seemed sharper than those of 6300.May be I first have to try out the ones of 6300 to confirm).
- Thumbs up for the 16 million colours!!!
- HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED ANY OVERHEATING! And my 6300 is Hungarian(mfd May 2007)-battery also Hungarian.
- 4ne is not for MUSIC MANIACS (Good am also not one). So I have no cause to worry so much about the battery.
- Conclusion: THIS 4NE IS WOW!!!!!!
SO HEAR FROM YOU SELF RESPECTING GUYS.(Respect yourselves & you'll be RESPECTED.)
I'm going to play my broken record again...I got 3hrs. 39mins. on a straight call and 2 hours exact on 2 separate calls 5 minutes apart.
NO BATTERY ISSUES WHATSOEVER FOR ME!!!!!
RHYS, 28 May 2008Has it got a video recorder, an wots the memory like n how long can it record for at a time? a... moreThe 6300 has unlimited video recording. The larger the memory card the longer the recording.
Anonymous, 28 May 2008don't buy this fone it looks nice and professional but the battery life sucks call like 3 call... moreHow long is the duration of each of the 3 calls ?
You can't just say 3 calls you have to specify the minutes too. It could be 3 1 hour calls. Be precise.
hey guys, its really the best, i have it myself and am very satisfied with it, it comes with, camera, voice recorder, music player with eq, and video camera too.dunno why the world isn't buying more of these and go for the stupid NSeries, this one doesnt have symbian, hence..NO HANGING at all..Hallelujah!!
I have to agree with dani for once the 6300 is classic in design an the screen beats 5310 but thats it has anyone in here ever had a 7390 or a prism?any gøod?
Has it got a video recorder, an wots the memory like n how long can it record for at a time? any one know?
hi all, I want to buy this handset 6300, is it best? plz reply urgently
Agreed, but still theres something about 6300
Stainless Steel Body (5310 plastic light and durable)
16M Colours(Brigher then any other)(5310 has the same screen and brightness)
XpressMusic 1.0 (easier to use)(5310 Musicxpress 2.0 loud and clear sound with 3.5 mm AV jack which is advantage)
Better Keypad and Navigation (5310 nothing less)
Better 2MP Camera (5310 has same camera)
Faster UI and Better Response (5310 same UI as 6300)
don't buy this fone it looks nice and professional but the battery life sucks call like 3 calls and battery life down half
sorry, let me correct the first sentence,,
that should be "when you first [buy(not "but")] a phone
when u first but a phone, you have to do initial charging right?.. is that means you have to leave it on the charger even though it says that it is already full just to complete the 8hour initial chargng?
5310 (with 5.81 version with 2GB memory card) Battery last upto 4 days, light weight in pocket (71 grams) and it's a great phone

thats what i find better in 6300
but we all know No Phone is Perfect, so why argue?
7500 prism is a good phone but with bad battery. Needs charging on daily basis. Down fall of prism is only due to it's poor battery performance. Otherwise it's a great phone as the sound quality is as good as 6300, screen is 16 million colors, lighter than 6300 and doesn't become hot. Mostly ladies prefer this model and I sold mine. I am using 5310 (with 5.81 version with 2GB memory card) Battery last upto 4 days, light weight in pocket (71 grams) and it's a great phone. So far no issues with it. You may try one but make sure you dont pick a Chinese make.
