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.
if your an sms person, this phone is not for you, after a couple of tex about 5 or 8, the power bar is easily lessen and later it going down really fast
too bad for me i have this one, the battery is a nightmare
I understand the battery problems, at first, you really will hate the phone, maybe because the phone is new that's why u use it most of the time, but as the day goes on,the use of the phone will be lessen, only the basic features were use, like txt/call.
Im from the Philippines, and I bought an adaptor for the charger, now it charge 4 only 1hr, then I am having problems on wearing out the battery, knowing that the battery life is short, now the phone last for 2 days, and I need to charge the Phone whenever Im going somewhere, and I can say that Im very satisfied with it.
For those who have questions just email me, thanks
I even like nokia 6600 rather than this 6300, the battery is is very very poor and the camera sucks, only good at daylight but in night, so ugly
its a very new n good model . i ever seen this kind of mobile before,good look n very good keypad but am not satisfying its GPRS settings n configuration,but am happy with this mobile
thnking you urs welwisher
i need help in charging the unit. I just bought this unit yesterday ang i wasnt able to check on the battery charging. Im not sure if the package should include the usual charger that we use using 220V (electric socket type) but what i purchased only includes the unit, headset, usb, another battery inserted on a desktop charger and manual. Is the only way to charge the battery through desktop only or the usual charger (electric socket type) can also be used. Did the seller forgot/did not include that charger? help pls i cant use the phone =(
its useless having a nice slim phone, but if the battery is poor the phone is toitally useless, the best criteria looking for a phone is good battery before looking the features
@ monica lopez
It's true. Everyone who buys this phone has to purchase the usb data cable separately. You can get them very cheaply off eBay if you want one.
I find that very hard to believe.
@ the guy who said "the worst of all nokia handsets"
go look at every nokia phone ever made and then think over that statement again.
REGARDING THE BATTERY:
Yes the battery life isn't that great on this phone but it's a small sacrifice to make for a phone that has superb features and is being sold for way less than what it's really worth.
i recently bought nokia 6300 and its package does not include usb for transferring files to the pc. is it so? help please... thanks..
hmmm... i bought this phone just a few minutes. wen i charge it 4 the very 1st time.. it explode... its like atomic bomb.. now,, i dont have my nokia 6300 and dont hav my house too.. :(
Before I got this phone I had a 6230 which was an excellent phone.
The 6230 has a higher capacity battery and less power consuming features. The 6300 has a slimmer lower capacity battery because of the required thickness for the phone's finishing.
By far, the 6230 could go three or more days of plenty talking...on a single charge whereas the 6300 goes a full day...and maybe a day and a half if you make lots of call.
I will admit, overall the 6230 (and some others) lasts longer on a single charge BUT I don't have a problem charging my 6300 on a daily basis. I don't know how some of you only get 30 mins. and 1 hour etc. because I get a full day of talk time and I use my phone for heavy calls most days. It lasts me throughout the day until I get home. That's good enough for me.
