I used 6300 in the begining of the year 2007 for some time and found its performance very satisfactory except the battery life. now i am using 6555 which i need some time to evaluate its performance close to the bone.
Ovfw is right battery life is terrible in a 6300 it goes from full straight to flat sometimes in four hours
My battery would never last more than 1 and a half days. I usually send a hundred text messages a day, listen to a couple of mp3s thru the loudspeaker, rarely makes a call, and keep my phone switched on overnight even when i'm asleep. With all these plus the usually weak network signal i would have to recharge my battery everyday and so sometimes i feel like i want to replace my 6300 with a 6233 (which, i think, uses a more powerful battery and has better battery management).
i am still hunting for a BL-4CU 1000mAH battery, though, which should give me more operating time. i'm just not sure if it would be compatible with the 6300. i'm sure it will fit but i'm not sure if it will recharge on the 6300 (i found out that the BL-5CA battery fits on the Nokia 2626 and would even power the phone up but it wouldn't recharge on the phone). Sometimes i wonder why Nokia makes too many versions of batteries which are of the same size anyway but have different capacities and compatibility (e.g. BL-4C, BL4-CT, BL-4CU and BL-5C, BR-5C, BL-5CA).
I think some people make too much of a big deal about the mAh capacity rating.
If you check out some Nokia phones, you will see that some higher capacity batteries gives less standby and talk time than the 6300.
In addition to that, you will also see that some higher capacity batteries give the same standby and talk time as the 6300.
An example of a higher capacity giving less power is the Nokia 7610. The rating is as follows:
Standard, Li-Ion 900 mAh (BL-5C)
Stand-by Up to 250 h
Talk time Up to 3 h
It's all about the power consumption and mechanics of the phone itself.
To ANGE UK:
The battery in my phone is the same as everybody else, Li-Ion 860 mAh (BL-4C).
Original jamaican what batery u got in ur 6300? Woteva it is i want one! I like my 6300 but battery life in mine is bad
I read that these style phones are now oldfashioned... I'd prefer somethind more like toshiba mobiles.Perfect design, incredible colours. ( especially TS605 )
I recommend no one buy this phone... it is garbage.! its battery is going down too fast and its design is not good at all.
I need to rephrase something. I shouldn't just say I write "opinion" about my battery life...I write FACTS about my battery life.
My battery life is excellent.
Yesterday morning my battery was on 1/4. I plugged it in but didn't allow it to charge completely, meaning it did not show 'battery full' because I had to rush out for work. When I plugged it out it showed a full battery which is typical for phones...at least Nokia phones.
In the morning, afternoon, evening and last night I made and received a few short calls. This morning, more than 24 hours later, the battery still shows a full bar. I write my opinion about my battery life so to each his own.
Im winura now?erm no im not wrong! I am here for 6300 advice thats it i lov my 6300 it works a treat.
i am one of the fisrt to own this phone in namibia it of great pleasure 2 be a owner
Yes the sound is good . The screen is awesome .
The mp3 player plays quality music. The camera is not so good unless you click in broad daylight . and of course the battery sucks.
could anyone please tell me how the speak sound? is it good? is it similar with 5300?
battery on 6555 seems pretty bad. with my kind of a usage its lasting only a day and requires charging on daily basis. hopefully battery strength may improve with couple of discharging and recharging in due course. previous to this phone i was using samsung e590 designed by the famous industrial designer Jasper Morrison which used to last 3 days. it's pretty amazing small phone with quality sound. the only problem is that the fonts are too small and i had pull out my glasses everytime i want to find something from the phone. 6555 has the same screen as 6300 very sharp and can be easily read under the bright sun light. rest of the features i seldom use. hands free sound quality is pathetic. not at all loud and clear which is very disappointing. even in the quite areas like inside the car or at home is still very very low. as i keep using it, i will throw more views on this model in due course.
I prefer 6301 because of 5th edition software in it its much better in my opinion having both is ideal mind my 6300s good to.
