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.
The product is bad and after sales service is deplorable. Battery standby time is less than 30 minutes and the inbuilt battery charging jack socket comes out of the cell phone. it starts giving trouble after 2 weeks of use and later the set become dead.
My Nokia 6300 mobile set, which I purchased in August,2007 started giving trouble from very beginning and later on became a dead set. Nokia Care Centre did not carry out repair even after keeping the set for 2 days and further damaged the set besides breaking the memory card. Numerous e-mails sent and phone calls made to the Nokia Care and its central offices for replacement. No concrete reply nor any action. Apathetic and irresponsible attitude of the company forces you to feel cheated and harassed. The set is really bad and so is the company. It is selling substandard and defective sets in India and cheating people. Never touch a Nokia Mobile set. It is a buy and cry set.

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.
I have Sony Ericsson K550i & Nokia 6300 but Nokia 6300 is worse. Nokia need to stop production of this phone. The only thing good in this phone is design.
Don't buy this phone, Buy Sony Ericsson K750i or k550i prices are nearly same.
Look at it!
6300 is Good Looking and Sexy!
and has Great Personality(UI)
no wonder 6300 is being raped:P

TERRY, I have said over and over again, my 6300 is perfect...just like yours (smile).
I have no complaint whatsoever about my phone, not even battery. Battery life is very good in mine.
Mine was made in Hungary running 5.50.
Guday everyone.i dnt know why my phone does nt support downloaded files.nigeria
After all that i have read here today i recon some of us have really good 6300's and others must have inferior versions.
Mine is made in China and i do not have any issues with heating up, or freezing, or restarting, the speakerphone is as clear as maidens water and when i am calling someone at least 2000 miles away i do not ever have any problems with my calls, and my battery lasts easily a week with normal calls and txt.
My cam is excellent for a 2 mp and all features on this set are excellent,
Iam using 2 GB SD, And the software is 6.01.
I am sad to see so many unusual bad reports surfacing at this time concerning this Magic lil handset the 6300.
Just dont forget that this is not an expensive set, and the sales figures speak for themselves, the figures dont lie.
The 6300 is an excellent reliable mobile well mine is and all of my family and friends who are using this set are not having any issues here in Australia.
So if ya buy one from a reputable store and if ya were to find a fault as you certainly do with every make of mobile ever produced then it is simple to return it to the store.
So much easier than winging like a spoilt little boy who has wet his pants lol.
