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.
any one there can tell me someyhing 'bout this????:
- My operator provides internet conexion with in my cell(gprs)I am in costa rica...I use a 6300 to connect my computer to the web sometimes...the conection speed is 460.8 kbps.....
-Recently my father bought this SE k550 and we installed SE pc suite...my surprise was that when using my SIM card on that SE and connecting the computer to the web the conection speed is 10 mbps!!!!!!!!!
Can anyone tell me why??? Has somebody there experienced something at least similar to this??
your comparison looks very objective, I'd really like to read more like them about the rest of devices we can usually see on sites like this...coincidentally I like both phones you compared and I almost sell my 6300 for a 5310 just based on 4gb sd support of 5310...I'll think it twice now...but can you tell me if 6300 can support 2gb hdsd micro memory cards??? Or higher capabilities??? Im also planning to get a BL-4C battery lo enlarge its battery life...dou you think that might be wise???
I'm sorry, I may have been wrong when I said the 6300's loudspeaker is mono, since it has just one loudspeaker so I assumed it was mono. I thought a phone should be classified as having stereo loudspeakers if it has two separate loudspeakers for the left and right channels, which is the case for the 5310 as well as the 6233.
I'm a bit confused now.
I've been using this handset for a while now and its doing really great. The only thing irritates me about this is its battery life. I have to recharge it almost everyday. Is there anything that i can do increase its battery life or the set is born with this flaw?
And 5310 looks better and doesnt heat up like the 6300 does a 5310 is miles better so what if its a music phone its better than 6300
if you ask me i would say
6300 is miles bettter then then 5310
my friend has a 5310 i had it side to side when i had my 6300
6300 felt better and was better
man i really miss the 6300 again! im gonna buy another 6300 defanatly tomorrow!
either in Black or the Original colour Silver/Black
il let you people know if i get a 6300
i Love it ........
I re-read your comparison and it is indeed a good one.
As you can see the 6300 has an overall edge over the 5310. One of the main reason being the 6300 is in a higer class...6 series opposed to 5 series.
Based on what you said about the 5310 camera being slow is true. I read GSMArena's review and they too said the camera is very slow. You said the 6300's camera is twice as fast...that alone makes the 6300 the better choice for me as I'm into imaging a lot so speed is key for me.
With the 5310 being a music phone I would expect louder speakers in general so I am surprised to hear you say the 6300's loudspeaker is louder than 5310.
Now, with the 5310 being a music phone then naturally the battery life would be longer...and it is, by almost 2 hours.
Rony, I need to corret you on one thing, the 6300's speaker is stereo and I didn't need forum.nokia.com to tell me that. You can go there and check the really technical specs. for any Nokia phone.
I like the really sturdy and metallic feel of the 6300 so 5310 being 100% plastic would feel like a downgrade for me.
For anybody who wants more internal memory and longer battery life then they should consider the 5310.
I will re-post my comparison on 5310 and 6300 for you, Tarek.
ON LOOKS AND GENERAL FEEL:
-I personally find the 5310 to be more stylish, trendy, sexy. The 6300 is rather classy, discrete, and professional looking.
-When compared side-by-side the 5310 definitely looks smaller.
-The 5310 feels VERY fragile since most parts are made of plastic. There are also a lot of holes or gaps where dust can easily enter and accumulate especially on the screen. The 6300 gives a more sturdy feel because of its stainless steel finish. It's very solid with no gaps and when handling it doesn't produce crackling noise.
-The 6300's screen is brighter.
-The 6300's LCD is protected by a glass screen while the 5310 is covered by plastic(?).
-The 6300's loudspeaker is louder. However, the 5310 produces richer, "true" stereo sound. The 6300's loudspeaker is just mono.
-When listening to music through the headphones, I couldn't tell the difference between the two phones.
-The 5310's side volume keys sometimes wouldn't work. Restarting the phone would fix it.
-The 6300's camera "seems" better. Pictures appear sharper and colors are more balanced. I am not sure if this is because the 6300 has a better camera or a better LCD or both.
-5310 has NO "Night Mode".
-Panning and scanning with the 6300's camera is smoother, so videos should look smoother too.
-Snapshots take twice as long for the 5310 to be processed compared to the 6300. This probably means the 6300 has a faster CPU(?).
-The 5310's video player has no Rewind/Fast Forward function like in the 6300.
-A nice feature on the 5310 is the ambient light detector which automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen and switches on/off the keypad light to conserve battery.
-The 6300 has so-called reminder lights on the sides which discreetly alerts you every now and then if you have an unread message or unanswered call.
Considering all these I would say the 5310 is for the hip and trendy who are after looks and loves music a lot. For everything else, I think the 6300 is a better choice (although I might be biased).
just like to share this piece of goodie information with everyone
after extensive searching thru the web on (took me like 3 days)
HOW FREE UP MEMORY on the 6300...
as it only comes with 7.8MB and almost half is taken up by appz, tones, and themes skin... so you're left with about 4MB FREE mem.
and when you try to delete it
it wont allow you to delete because its supposedly READ ONLY FILE SYSTEM.
there is this JAR appz called: MOBY EXPLORER
which allows to remove/delete MOST files.. ^_^
very useful... you'll also need to set in the application setting to allow the program to access the files.
its a demo.. with naggin 10sec screen but if u can bare with it like i did.. its worth it.
I managed to end up with 7MB FREE memory.
as I removed stuffs that I don't need.
^_^ this 7MB FREE could be used for possibly (almost unlimited) SMS storage yet to test it.
hope its useful for some who been searchin in vain to free up their 6300 internal memory
Lack of arrogance no more like lots of it you arent mr nokia and the 6300 isnt good.nokia isnt the only phone brand in universe make a change you may like it.
I dont mind what i say is truth the 6300 isnt best nokia made.
i know i can make out but these days there are many copycats visiting are trying to copy you. so at times its hard to make out.
thanx for letting me know.
i just wanted to make sure it's you and not any fake OJs around because you IP address is different many times in this forum.
i thought nokia has solved heating problem on their 6300/ 2008 year series. because i used only in the begining of 2007 during when they had just launched and i used it in india as well as in bahrain the country where i am presently working had this getting hot problem. i sold it to my collegue who still has but not using and when checked with him his complaint is also same the phone get hot in just under 2-3 min of starting conversation. in this case winura is right with his comment. i will check with other users and post my comment in due course. at the moment i am not very sure whether this is happening only with some defective sets.
Yes but mainly my office PC. Other than that my home PC.
battery on 6555 doesnt seem to last more than a day though we have full signal strength all over this country. so phone needn't have to struggle to search for the network draining its power. also the performance of 6555 is very unstable as far as the hearing quality from the speakers. sometimes its like a land line, loud and crystal clear and sometimes the caller sounds as if he talking from a far distance though the volume is cranked up to max. i didnt face this problem with samsungs and motorolas. (i use Motophone F3 the cheapest phone in the world for my second number and one must appreciate its performance)this problem i also noticed with the new generation low end Nokia phones especially coming from china. is the QC suffering at Nokia? if this is the case very soon Samsungs and Sony Erricsons will take over its place.
today someone gifted me Motorola RAZR V8 limited edition plated in 18 carrot gold. WOW it looks too flashy and really not to my taste. i tried to pair it with my laptop but it refuses to pair. maybe a software bug but the quality of the speaker and mic are first rate as usual the motorola tradition natural sounding. also the 2 mega pixel non- auto focus cam produces superb pics with good resolution and less noisy with absolutely no shutter lag time which helps to take quick multiple pics unlike Nokias. Few things I didn't like in moto are its too flashy, quite heavy and very slippery like a fish. I am afraid I am gonna drop it one day.
To the FAKE WINURA:
Standard battery, Li-Ion 820 mAh (BL-4C)
Stand-by Up to 240 h
Talk time Up to 3 h 20 min
It's NOT the same battery.
The Winura I know, who you can find in the E51 forum, doesn't diss Nokia like that so more than likely the Winura in here is a fake. If you check back earlier posts from this 6300 forum you will see that Winura spoke highly of Nokia as well.
Some people enjoy giving others a bad name.
It's a shame these type of people can't follow in my footsteps.
I will remain ORIGINAL.
