well as i told you before i did experience heat from the phone even i could feel the heat from the phone on my ear lobes. i sold it only for that reason and the person who bought, today when checked with him, his complain matches mine. so today i visited mobile shopping complex where several mobile shops are located and i know quite a few shop owners and when checked with them to my surprice every ones complaint was same that they have received from many various customers that the phone gets hot while talking. i got nothing against 6300, but the fact of getting hot is true in this country. i am not sure whether this model supplied to different regions in the world are made of different components which is developing the phone to get hot.
It does heat up youll see when you've had it a while or chat for a while.
As I tell everybody in here who's skeptical about getting the phone. Don't listen to hear-says and rumours. Be your own judge. There's no better review than your very own. At least you are smart and decided not to listen to the negative.
I recently purchased this phone. I was skeptical at first, after reading the things people wrote about battery life and it heating up. Now, let me dispute the myths.
THE PHONE DOES NOT HEAT UP! Your hand warms up the steel battery cover, not the battery.
THE BATTERY IS GOOD! It last for a long time with the average talk time and texting. I do a lot of both, and the battery last at least 2 days.
Other than that, the keys are ergonomic and ARE USER FRIENDLY!
This phone is perfect for those of us that need a phone with cool features, but not over the top, which we would not use.
Sure it doesn't have Wi-Fi, but get a frigging lap top. You can't use a phone to browse web pages the way you would on a computer or a lap top.
Sure the camera doesn't have a flash, but invest in a good digital camera and have good quality everything. Phones have plastic cameras that will never compete with dedicated cameras.
Signal if very good on this phone.
Great phone, but it. Good price2feature ratio!
Hi Jamaican!. So you are now eyeing for the E51? Cheers! I'm also planning to buy that handset but i'm just quite mixed up with my choice between E51 and N6120classic. Could you please make a comparison between these two handsets that i have mentioned please?.. Because i personally think that the 6120c is really a tough competitor in the face of E51 because they are both lightweight and compact smartphones. So please if possible, make a comparison. Please please please...
yes, stereo on 6300 means only through headphones and i dont think so from the handset as you can find only one speaker at the back of the phone. To experience stereophonic sound there should be two seperate speakers placed away from each other.
Who gives a hoot whether its stereo or mono its a phone to recieve an make calls by definition in dictionary people worry and ponder over crazy things.
As for Dani, the mono output you were referring to e.g. 3310 ringtones is a totally different terminology. That "mono" means "monotonic" which is used to classify ringtones that only have 1 CHORD, as opposed to "monophonic" which we use in classifying music having only 1 CHANNEL. FYI, the older symbian phones i.e. 7650, 6600, and 7610 have mono audio output (whether thru loudspeaker or headphones).
I would stick with my own understanding of "stereo". Got this definition off some website:
"Stereo, or sometimes known as stereophonic sound, is the reproduction of sound using two independent audio channels. Separate microphones are used in recording and separate speakers are used in reproduction."
I couldn't imagine how one can appreciate stereo sound using one speaker only, as stereo is an audio reproduction which is intended to allow the listener to perceive DIFFERENT sounds from different sources positioned to his left and to his right. So clearly, stereo is best achieved when using headphones. But when using loudspeaker, you should have at least two separate speakers that are DISTANT from each other in order to SIMULATE human hearing (the case with 6233, 7370, and the XpressMusic line).
I think the 6300 is classified as stereo by Nokia since it DOES produce stereo output WHEN using headphones. But when playing sound thru the loudspeaker (which the 6300 only has one), the output is downmixed to mono. But then that's just my personal belief.
OJ has said it all
Stereo doesnt mean 2 Speakers
Mono output is like on the old Nokia's e.g. 3310 ringtones lol
6300 has Stereo Output
6233 has 2 Stereo Output
5310 Has stereo Output
to original_jamaican: what do you think who is better?6300 or 5310?
To ANGE UK:
No I'm sticking to the my 6300 for the time being.
When I do decide to change my phone more than likely I will go for a Symbian seeing that they are now as slim and fast as the new S40 phones.
I have my eye on the E51 as my next upgrade.
This phone is really cool i don't experience
any problems with this phone is can do basically anything .I advise people to buy it .It is really worthed
You don't need 2 speakers to achieve stereo. I even had old cassette radios with 1 speaker and the audio output was in stereo. The packaging even stated the radio gives stereo output.
Now, if you say the stereo output is better with 2 speakers then that's a different story.
2 speakers gives better stereo flow. That's the only difference.
Even my old Nokia 6230 had a stereo speaker.
Well i read that KRZR K1 easily breaks the front design
and the UI is soooooo old that's the only problem well i'll try to COMPARE them well so hard
I just like the only tthing about the KRZR is the DESIGN
and another thing THANKS OJ!
Don't be c0nfused. A single l0udspeaker(which the 6300 have) obvi0usly can't do stere0.
sometime back i owned 5310 (blue colour) and following are my comments.
5310 is equal or little better than 6300. First of all it doesnt get hot while talking, battery life is good atleast 2 days for a heavy user, sound quality from the built in speaker is firt rate though not very loud but sounds very natural & slim light weight make it very comfortable in your pocket. only minus side is it's cam which is very pathetic worse than 6300. hopefully any new software that may come in future should improve the camera quality.
