I totally agree with Decent. I've been using this phone since 3 months. Its battery was gud, but now its worst. And its so called 16 million colour is worst than SE mobiles, esp not that bright.
This phone is weird.. coz its battery is very cheap, doesn't last for a day either. Its screen says 16 Million color but is worst than SE phones(k800,810) whereas these phone have 256 K color. i will prefer Sony Ericsson in any case. 1
What I would say that MSDict Oxford Medical dictionary which the company says: it is compatible with 6300 is 1 MB in size and 6300 cannot read it!
Sjss: i think the java apps which are more than 1 MB are intended to be used on series-60 (symbian) phones only. haven't seen a series-40 phone that can read apps that are more than 1MB.
This phone does not support Symbian, and this is known, but I have discovered recently in my 6300, is that this phone also cannot read JAVA applications if the file size is about 1 MB or more. My friend's N70 can. This phone is not good neither for sis nor jar
never buy this phone! battery is not very good...only last for a day and have to recharge it.
camera is not the best either. you would think that it's pretty decent but ohh NO! it's blurry and grainy and has a green tinge...this phone is terrible~
thanks for the information!ok i finally decided what im goin to buy..thnks..
Hi! Well my 6300 is getting 2 days with average use. But anyway, this isn't something to question. This phone got 16.7 million colours so i think this isn't bad for a 16M color screened-phone.. P.S. I followed as you instructed.. Thanks buddy.
i have had my 6300 for a week now and i'm still very much in love with it. i didn't notice any problem with it at all (that's a first time). i guess i could say that this is one of the very few nokia phones that have a very stable software. i have firmware v5.00.
the battery lasts a little longer now, about 1.5days. must be because i don't browse through it as often as i did when i first got it, because of too much excitement.
just about the only thing that annoys me is the dust that got on the screen. apparently this phone is not at all that dust-resistant, and it would be bothersome to unscrew the faceplate just to clean out the insides. i have had my nokia 2626 for over 3 months now and dust never got in the screen (and its cover is easily exchangeable!).
Ohh I remember to tell you the only irritating fault on my girlfriend´s 6300:
The slow memory card reading. As you said the phone reads fast the micro sd card when I browse pictures or any files. But the problem appears when I´m changing my ring tone or message tone, When I change my profile. At that moment my 1gb micro sd opens extremely slow and takes like 20 seconds to open it. But I´m not sure if my .sisx files (That micro sd is from my 5700 for that reason this card has those files) are a factor for that issue.
I coincide with you this 6300 is as fast as my previous 6230 and as my mom has the 6230i I know how slow it is.
Take care OJ and thanks for your useful suggestions
Well let me tell you that my girlfriend´s 6300 is version 4.72. I´ll detail you the whole specifications:
That´s all about the firmware, but when I looked at Nokia software updater for new versions it doesn´t displays the 5.50. It displays the same version I got.
The voice recorder issue that you said holds same for this version. But anyway is a very good phone. Even my friends seems more attractive this 6300 than my 5700.
yes i know i owned 2 SE's W850i and K800i only on a trial basis though...
the W850i's D-Pad cracked so i couldnt use it :( and K800i i sold it !
so now i have the 6300 and LOVE IT
(6233 as a 2nd phone)
i Love the XpressMusic Player in this phone it rocks alot better then Walkmans
FUTURE 6300 USER I figure more or less you have the 6300 now. Tell me how things are going with it so far.
The 6300 camera is extremely clear even in night mode.
The 6300 is a higher class phone than 3110 classic.
The 6xxx series are high end series...for the most part aimed at the business market.
The 3xxx series are lower end series aimed mainly for the younger generation, like teenagers.
If you check Nokia's official site you will see that they used a kid for the 3110 classic advertisement. They always use adults for 6xxx series. Some people overlook these things and fail to understand that every Nokia series is aimed at a different market.
The good thing about 3110 is that it will give you 1/2 hour more talk time in good conditions and it also have irDa (infared) but more than likely the reason for irDa is for it to live up to the classic name...as most high end phones only come with bluetooth these days.
To sum it up the 3110 has a smaller screen, less resolution and far less colours in the screen. The difference between 262,000 colours compared to 16.7 million colours is very noticeable.
The 3110 camera is a lower one, the body is made of plastic while the 6300's body is made of high quality stainless steel and piano accent. Nokia promoted the 3110 classic as a budget phone while the 6300 isn't.
Finally, CNET, the hardest reviewing company gave the 3110 a 6 out of 10 while it gave the 6300 8.3 out of 10.
Click on this link to compare both phones side by side:
I'm very careful when I post stuff. If you took note I didn't say all smart phones are slow, I said the average ones are slow. "we all know how slow smart phones GENERALLY are".
If you compare the average smart phone, you will see that only an extremely small percentage have decent speed and that is just with the recent release of 6120 and 5700...as you put it. I couldn't refer to smart phones as if they are usually fast because for many years, including some which were released last year are still very slow. A co-worker of mine have E61i and it's slow as hell...and that's a fairly new one released last year.
So I still have to speak of them being generally slow.
i like this phone but other dudes says that the battery life sucks... so it makes me confused.... xD
