i have this phone for about 3 months
-radio 6-7 hours
-mp3 3-4 hours
-mp3/radio+games 3-4 hours
i have a 1GB t-flash card on it and it drains a lot of battery.
i bought this phone for 100E from orange and it's the best i had till now
had sony erricson ... not too good..crash a lot, joystick problems (k700), v.v. good batt life
motorola ... pff..better the old d460 then v3x or v3.. waste of money...User Interface - like linux for windows users
sagem..very good phones..UI & software suxx big time, slow in movements and program loads
nec...could have beem slimmer..very very good phones and rezistent (had v616e or smth like that)
samsung..very good design .. but that's all..battery lifetime si awfull!
nokia - 6610i - great phone, great batt life, very very good for talk
6210 and 6310i - still have them, can't remember when my father charged them last time :-s
7650 - great phone, symbian OS...very small memory, bad batt life
6600 - lot better then 7650, my brother had it for 3 years already, bad batt life
6131 it's 6300's clamshell version, had it before this, very very very good phone, mettalic case, but same .. batt life worse then 6300
and other models
price / quality is great, want quality ? go 4 this nokia, want camera quality ? get a digital photo camera
mob phone's will NEVER have a digital camera's quality
to all i have been using a BL-5C, for the past 5 month on not one but two 6300's. it works you just have to push it in a little hard the fist time. the timing is a lot better than BL-4C.trust me it works.
I got a 6300 today (18Dec07) from CPWhouse, selling with the 5.50 version and BL-4C battery...can you get a different battery somewhere else?
ive been using this set since february..... well, this set is awesome... xcept the battery....... i just love the set..... the display is astonishing
"Hey ppl the battery mentioned in the specification on this site is BL-4C which is quite old. Now Nokia 6300 is being sold with BL-5C which is more powerful and lasts longer. So plzzz before buying this model make sure that u hav battery BL-5C."
-are you sure? i had a bl-4c on mine. shet.

Some of you people need to stop complaining about the battery. It's getting annoying now.
I was able to get 3hr. 39mins. on a straight call until the battery died. That is EVEN MORE than the specified talk time!!!
I would agree with you if it applied to an expensive phone but as the 6300 is so cheap it doesn't bother me. This phone is even cheaper than what the 3310 was retailing at when it first came out.
I find it interesting that people complain about the battery. All you need to do is calibrate it properly by charging it all through the night when you first get your phone, it's just like your laptop or iPod battery.
The 6300 is a brilliant phone in my opinion.
@the person having trouble with the USB cable,
All you need to do is use bluetooth, it solves the problem entirely..well at least for me as I am on a mac with built-in bluetooth.
haha thats a stupid comment, u cant sacrifice battery pack, just to have a good looking phone
battery pack is the backbone of a phone, if your battery pack is poor, all the good features will look suck, because it cannot handle its features
this phone is whacked
There's no such thing as a perfect phone. Every phone has it's downsides. This one happens to be the battery.
When I had my Sony Ericsson T610 four years ago that had the worst sim card holder I had ever seen. It was an absolute joke. Poorly designed and made. The joystick was also a nuisance. I've never used a Sony Ericsson since.
Every Samsung phone I've had a go on has had terrible software/operating system. It's hard to navigate and just frustrates you in the end.
The less said about Motorola phones the better.
With Nokia phones they've always been easy to use and are designed well.
The battery problem is a small sacrifice to make for a phone that has brilliant features and a quality design. The price is also nice too.
I don't see how your battery life drops after 5-8 texts because I have sent more than 20 throughout the day and my battery was still full until I started making some calls in the night. Either way it still lasted me until the following day.
The speaker isn't so strong for ringing BUT stronger for music playback and very strong for video playback.
i want to ask about the speakers.
its speakers are stereo???
and they are strong??
I bought my phone just 4 days back. I have observed that when i charge it, the batter indicator keeps moving. I have charged it for nearly 6-8 hrs on the 1st day but it still moves. Even on the 2nd day of using i charged it for 2.5 hrs, it was still moving. How is this possible? How long do i need to charge my phone?
I just bought this phone its been heavily discounted for Christmas I do agree the battery runs out very quickly my last phone was a 6330 I would normally get 3 days from it.
I was playing a game on the phone and it ran out of power, on the plus side it does charge very quickly, its packed full of great features, blue tooth 2 megapixel camera, fab display the phone itself looks great feels very solid.
