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.
i have this phone its colour is superve but the only problem with this phone is that its battery is not very good
Great Phone!!!!! but the only drawback is its battery life. It dosen't last even one full day. Nokia should do somthing abt this...
For the people with the battery issues.. Face it almost of all the Nokia new era phones do not have the same charge holding capacity.
For 6300 the batter is if i am right around the 800mah. The display is 16M which is real bright with out any control on the brightness... so i guess if u r gonna go 6300 Its a small price you pay for using style in a cost sensitive way.
But come to think of it the battery is life is better than samsung X820, which is a real good phone.
So the decision is up to you , would u take a phone which is nice to look has almost the features, its not that expensive(very subjective)with the draw back (not for me) that u have to charge every 36-48 hrs..
People who use their phone for more than 4 hrs a day don't buy it...
If u have bought it, stop cribbing , because every body now knows battery is average.
the battery of this one really stinks, i always need to charge to my car when i use it for call, then an hour later its almost empty again, very unconvenient
My query is regarding the users of this phone, has the battery been changed? I mean the notion is that the battery dies out soon. Has nokia fixed that problem? please do tell. Thank you
i have this phone but i am not so satisfide because there is limited space for photo and the main thing is poor battery.but the feature is good and attractive.
Just get a K800i same price. 3.2 MP camera. Go look at the the spec and then come back to this phone.
It is a great set...but it has a poor battarey life. nokia 5310 is better than this...
The battery really sucks!!!dont buy it.I got a brand new battery from Nokia shop and its the same god damned thing.Then I tried your advice and left to turn off by its self for 2-3 times and then recharged it.Believe me nothing happens.After you write some messages etc.... half of the battery is off.Era
If you all want a better battery, why don't you introduce a BL5C battery?
You adjust the battery a little bit, with a small file on the top and will fix for shore! But attention, i don't whant to be responsable for accidents. So be carefool!
Cant believe the moaning going on about this beautiful phone. I think this is a fantastic phone, couldnt care less if it has a 2megapixel camera! The phone is easy to use, battery life is good enough, if you want more memory buy a 1gb memory card. And this phone is so cheap to buy, it is THE BEST value phone out there!
well, i have been using this 6300 for almost 5 months now. No problem with the battery so far,actually from all of my units in the past, there has been no battery issue. Perhaps you guys do not know how to take care and how to use the battery the proper way. You have to read the manual regarding the battery that says. . YOU MAY CHARGE THE BATTERY ANYTIME YOU WANT AS LONG AS YOU WILL COMPLETE THE CHARGING. I charge the cell everynight. Though batt has life i charge it still, but i plug it off in the morning when i wake up. I don't worry about the "overcharging thing" it doesn't happen because the battery these days are nikel metal hydrite (sorry for the spelling)which means, the charger has the capacity to charge and will automatically stop when it completes. when you buy a new mobile phone, some of the sales person may say "the initial charging should be blah, blah, blah" well, don't believe them because charger stops automatically when it is full and done. Lastly, people, PLS DO NOT UNPLUG WHEN THE CHARGER IS STILL CHARGING, YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL IT IS FULL AND DONE. . . again you may charge anytime you want as long as you will complete before you unplug
good phone but worst battery, if your in an emergency call for trouble, your battery is the first one will die rather than the one who needs your help
