Igonore my previous comments, i sound like a SE Fanboy bigging K550i up lol
I agree K550i is a good phone, but still no comparism to 6300's Stainless Steel Body and Telephony and Music Playback is Great in 6300
I Love the 6300 because:
Stainless Steel Body
Nice to Hold
Keypad is as great as i said it was
Great UI Love it
Camera is Good enough for a 2MP
nah i mean seriously we all know No Phone is Perfect soo why argue and compare.
I LOVE the 6300, for alot of reasons iv had 2 of them already and Loved both
coming from a 6233 to 6300 is like coming from Angelina Jolie to Jennifer Aniston!
First of all bro why are you comparing a Music Phone to a All-Rounder ??
No Comparism at all, 6300 Blitz's 5310 is most areas
I did il text later an im in jamaica btw sony do great phones an i have to say 5310 is better than 6300 hands down
@ o.j did you get my number ok? Where in world are you? I've been given a 6300 by work again (a different one to one before) made in finland this time. I'll monitor battery and heat issue with this one. My last one was made in hungary.

6300 has Great Style, Dull Performance & features, Camera Works only in light, Sound is very poor, Overall 1 STAR phone.
I think Nokia is enjoying Companies goodwill in India otherwise this company is not near to compete with Sony Ericsson.
6300 could be bad phone due to getting hot problem and lousy battery performance but the screen is mind blowing. I too prefer 5310 which has 16 million colour screen to low performance 6300. There is no legitimacy in 6300 reviews as Nokia is marketing two different quality mobiles in the world market.
Dude, the colours dont matter i soppose
Nokia's Quality of Display's just dont look Natural at all.....
i put the same picture on both phones 6300 and K550i
The image looked so Realistic and Natural on the K550i
even i was shocked i was thinking what is the 16M Doing on the 6300 then???
as for the Keypad of 6300 i dont get mistakes all the time only sometimes i press 1 button i get like 3 from other buttons:S
Im not dissing 6300, iv owned 2 within 1 Year but still im kind off getting sick of it now. after owning 2 i think im getting Bored !
i need to change phones, i dont like 5310 or nany new Nokia's
K550i or maybe a SE Hmmmm..il see anyway for now 6300 !
To all of the people having problems with the battery i seriously suggest you buy an extra one. there very cheap and could save time if you are on jorneys and so on.Just a thought
SE phones are only good in music but the screen can't be read under the bright sunlight at all. Nokia's 16 million colour screens are the most superior screens available presently no matter what the light conditions are still the visibility is outstanding and no other phone manufacturers dont even come close to it. No motorolas no samsungs no SEs etc etc can beat Nokia screens in terms of clear visibility. 5310 is far superior than any other models in many ways. Nokia means mobile and mobile means Nokia forever.
I rarely make spelling errors when texting with my 6300. Accuracy is just as good as 6230 and everybody knows 6230 had one of the best keypads ever made.
I am yet to see a 262,000 colour display which even comes close to 6300 display. The major players from SE like the W810, K750 etc. doesn't come close and these are high-end SE phones...so I simply don't see how a low-end K550 can beat 6300's display.
the Keypad on 6300 Feels good but it lacks when texting ..constant spelling mistakes!
that doesnt happen in K550i
I think SE K550i is better then the 6300
my friend has a K550i i put it Head to Head with my 6300
the only things i find better in 6300 compared to K550i are:
Stainless Steel Body
Louder Loudspeaker but the Sound quality is not as good as K550i
this is what i found better in K550i:
Fine Display even with 176+220
Natural Colours and Clear display compared to 6300's
Better Music Player (Walkman 1.0)
Excellent Sound Quality Loudspeaker and Earphones
The 2MP Camera with Autocus and Flash with Camera Cover(murders 6300's camera)
Design is Slimmer and feels Stronger
Better D-Pad easier to control
the Keypad on K550i might look weird but its acchewly one of the best iv ever used! smooth and never a spelling mistake...
Menu is Faster and never slows down even with 4GB M2 !
this is my conclusion after seeing K550i i think id rather get that then 6300, i only like the Steel Body and 16M Display in 6300...
otherwise i would say K550i is a Much Much better Phone!
5310's looks and performance is outstanding compared to other phones in it's category.
You want to know if the 6300 is really worth buying.
Well i have a China made one and it is fantastic, hard to believe it costs so little.
I can tell you now go and get it you wont regret it.
But if you have doubts about it then the best advice i can give you is to ask the first 10 people you see with this set in their posession and then i guarantee you will buy it if you really want a good down to earth no hastle value for money set, So go on and take a little private survey of your own and then you will see that i speak not with falked tongue.
I baught this fabulous piece in May 2007. since then it has been working very good. more than 630 hours call time , and daily 1 1/2 hrs of quality music. this is one of Nokias briliant innovations. what more can you expect from such a sleek and sexy model? It takes you to great hights in terms of sound and beauty. Its really a luxuary at an unbeatable price. The 2 mega pix camera takes briliant pictures when provided good light and professional photography. I still enjoy carring this with me. Its MMS and other related facilities are more than enough for this range. I would rate this as No. 01 in similar capacity mobile phones.
Of course that this phone is being raped for a single reason: It's high popularity. I remember a lot when the 6230 debuted and was the most popular model. The same story. Always the most popular phones are the most raped, because some people dislike that and want to get people away from this phone. That's very unfortunate but the whole truth.
Anyway 6300 isn't going to be unpopular for these people as there are lots more who still want this exceptional piece.
@ o.j i dont sadly where in world are you would you like to text? I've got a work number you can have if you want. Let me know my friend. I'ts a shame that some take everything to heart as i said in my first review if you get a good 6300 that's cool. I was just unlucky i do believe. I'ts a nice looking set very classic. If you buy one an it does heat take it back and exchange until your satisfied. I had no choice in mine, it was work one.
sure thing ORIGINAL O_J .. I have noticed that your exceptionally happy with your 6300 and i can well understand so because even though mine is China made it really is a efficient well functioning and good looking peice of technology.
I am honestly suprised at how good my 6300 is and the features it does posess for so low initial cost, it seems like a gift from Heaven.
If i tried to find a fault with it then the only one thing i can say is that it feels a little slippery in winter time when the hands tend to be dried out somewhat.
But i have overcome this problem by attaching a very small chord loop to the bottom of the set just below the charging port and i slip my lil finger in to this and then i can manouver the handset in any position i choose and even hold it with 2 fingers without any chance of it falling.
I usually keep my 6300 in my pocket but yesterday i had placed it on the table top when i was out to lunch in public and was suprised to see so much attention and looks from young women to this handset.
