my colleague at work purchased a nokia 6300 which i realy admired, i went to shop for one two months later, what discouraged me was that the shop attendant asked me if i wanted the original one!!
he later told me that there're many fake nokia 6300 from china my apettite disapered i know want a different phone.
Cheska i accept i was wrong i appologise i always jump the gun and am a troublemaker the 6300 isnt good e51 is better the original original jamaican
Update: I am so annoyed. I just found out today that my Calculator is missing. This probably happened after that "white screen" phenomenon that occurred yesterday. Sish. Guess I have no choice but to do a firmware upgrade now.
Cheska: You couldn't blame Original_Jamaican for his initial reaction on you. You see, there is this guy who has been posting nonsense and making trouble in this thread and he is using multiple alternicks and his computer code is M@T2. I noticed that the computer code in your first post is the same, M@T2. That is probably the reason why he reacted violently to your first post. He might have mistaken you for that other person. I think it was an honest mistake by OJ and I personally do not blame him for that.
Yes, that was I mean. If you search in this forum some pages back you will see there are some fake OJs that are messing up this site. This forum is really annoying for all the discussions. What a problematic site.
I only want to tell yo that actually I own a Symbian phone (5700) so any phone that you choose (6120c or E51) will be a good choice. The Symbian S60 is better than ever before
Kababayan!! Hehehe.. I really really want to write in Tagalog but one of the posting rules is "ENGLISH ONLY" so i have no choice. Hehehe... Anyway, why is that Jamaican buddy sounds like mad at me? I am just new here and even, GSMArena is just new to me. Well why i was asking for his comparison? It's because i see that he is quite knowledgeable and i bet that he is an expert here seeing that he is planning for the E51 then at the same time seeing him as a knowledgeable fellow, i guess it is just right if a less knowledgeable person like me to ask from an expert one. Too bad, i thought i was very lucky to hear a comparison from an expert but see what he replied: "You are the same person that makes trouble here everyday". Whoah! He's way too aggressive to newcomers and i never knew that! But anyway if he will do an apology, then i will just accept it.
Well it is quite not reliable anymore if i ask this question to the E51 forum because surely they will tell me to go for E51 simply because it is the handset that they own and so does it go to the 6120.. So i guess it is more wise to ask from somebody who is still in a plan to buy a handset so that i will know too why he want this and he want that.
Thanks for giving your views! You mean there are lots of Jamaicans here?
Regarding the issue about the phone heating up, I have never experienced that with my unit. Guess I was one of the lucky few. Just sad that lately I've been experiencing the "white screen" phenomenon on my 6300 which never happened before for a long time. Guess it's because both my phone's internal and external memories are almost full now. I hope freeing some memory would fix it.
Hello Cheska! I am also from the Philippines, KABABAYAN! =)
Anyway, I'm afraid I couldn't help you with your inquiry since I am not that much into Symbian phones anymore. The only Symbian phones I used were the 7610 and the 6630 which were both great during their time. However, the newer N-series models (which my sister had used i.e. N70, N73, etc.) had too many software issues that's why I lost my interest in them. Besides, I don't think this is the right place for your inquiry. You see, this is the 6300 forum. =)
I don't think that was OJ who answered your question. Personally I think that there is some fake OJ who reply your post, because the original OJ isn't a problematic nor angry person. On the opposite he help people that haveproblems with their phones. Maybe the people cobtriubte too because ask the same questions many times like the batery life and maybe OJ think that some people don't trust on what he said.
Well if you want a comparision personally I would go for 6120c if I want a little better camera because the flash and the higher image quality, the front video call camera, better musiq quality and interface (it supports albumart)and is shorter. The price tag is also cheaper.
But if you are in the conectivity side, want more memory (both RAM and ROM), Wi-Fi and IRda, more solid feel (the back cover is made of metal)and a better battery, I think the E51 is a better choice. Both take up to 8gb micro sdhc cards.
To the Jamaican:
Dear, what are you talking about? I'm not making a trouble here my God im just asking for your comparison. :(
Well sorry if asking for a comparison is a trouble for you. And to tell you honestly with absolute certainty that it is just yesterday that i have discovered GSMArena.com.
Anyway, to the others like Rony and prem:
What do you think is better, 6120c or E51? Please please please make a comparison. Best regards from Cheska of Philippines!
Hey do u remember me from the 6230 forum??
I waas searching on this forum to see that you as always love to help people having problems and helping them with doubts.
But I have seen a post where you said that you are looking for a replacement for your 6300. Is that true?? I saw that you wrote about E51, so I think you want to enter to the Symbian world like I did some time ago when I changed my 6230 for 6682 and then for my actual 5700. Well let me tell you that every decision you make will be good the S60 is great now with the fast processors and big RAM so they won't let you down. But if you want to keep your 6300 that will be good too because as I saw in the opinions your 6300 is the best ever made, no faults, great batery life and speedy OS. Well if you want to upgrade let me know with a post or something. Take care
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.
