Sorry to hear that your 6300 cracks, echoes and the calls get disrupted at times but HONESTLY that doesn't happen to mine. If your phone is still under warranty you should consider a replacement, maybe you got a defective unit.
It's nice to see that you appreciate the 6230 and I still like mine...haven't sold it yet.
I remember the first time I spoke to someone on the 6230 it was so clear and lifelike, as you said, the feeling is as if you are in the same room with the person. However, since I started using the 6300 for calls it makes the 6230 calls sound plain and dull.
The 6300's call clarity is good despite your opinion. It has a sharp like sound and I have never heard any echo whatsoever. I don't even need to activate the 'Voice Clarity' feature to hear the calls any better because they are really clear.
To be honest with you, after making a call on the 6300 and going back to the 6230, the 6230 earpiece speaker sounds like a monaural one, calls sounds so deep on the 6230 compared to the 6300. If you were to put both phones in a voice sound category, the 6300 would be stereo and the 6230 would be mono. Just to give the others an idea of what I mean.
All you potential buyers out there YOU WILL NOT REGRET BUYING the 6300. I have NO PROBLEMS with mine.
When you purchase your 6300 please come back here and share your experience my friend.
My 6300 has NEVER heated up. The first time I charged it, I allowed it to charge for 24 hours and it was as cold as ice when I took it off the charger. The other day I was on a call for 3hrs. 32 mins. and it was barely warm...just as any other phone when you are on a call for lengthy periods.
Go for it.
more a question than a comment:
i want to buy the 6300 but have heard that it tends to heat up over long periods of use, due to the metal body.
is this so?
Whenever i connect the bluetooth with my IMBT43 laptop its gets disconnected the moment after its connected.
Can any body help me in this regard
look during calls it cracks sometimes and you have dirsuptions sometimes not many but it happens and it shouldnt, the callclarity is not good which is irritating. It is somehow hollow, the 6230 had a brilliant callsound it was like if the person you spoke to was in the same room, the 6300: the sound is echoing and hollow i just dont like it and the cracking is really really bad.
Nokia is better than SE,everyone knows it,so please try to post your reviews only about 6300,otherwise people will laugh at you......

The source with all these news is the
International Herald Tribune
This talks about Nokia's profit MORE than doubling this year.
whether or not Netherlands did a survey doesn't make a difference or change the fact that Nokia is NUMBER ONE by ratings and sales.
They currently have 38% of the market and it's expected that they will reach the 40% mark before or by the end of the year. Which simply means that Nokia would have captured almost HALF of the world's market.

hi to O.J. and allthe genuine 6300 lovers, i want to make a point about my battery life, i just want to say its very very good, just by making about 1 call a day and doing a lot of texing and listening to some muisc here and there i got 6.5 days out of my battery which is excellent in my view of, so people are making a lot of FAULSE comments on HERE!!
Thank you for showing up the illiteracy in SRB1. Some people just aren't savvy when it comes on to technology.
Even the manual INFORMS it's customers that battery life is dependent on many factors, the signal or your carrier being one of the main factors. If the phone has to struggle hard to find a good signal then it will obviously use more power, if the signal drops during calls it does a toll on the battery.
Every Nokia manual states that people ARE NOT supposed to cover the antenna area otherwise the phone will operate at a higher power level and many people DON'T realise that by placing their finger or fingers above the camera, they are COVERING the antenna which causes the signal to drop and the phone to struggle more during a call.
My signal is on full 99.5% (maybe even more) of the time so I have no quick battery drainage.
Even constant playing with the features doesn't do a big toll on my battery. On my very first charge, I got 7 1/2 hours doing nothing but playing with the features which is damn good in my book.
2 Srb1: you cannot deny that there is a "battle" between people saying the battery sucks and the battery is good. I am experiencing no problems with the battery. I have 5-6 days with fair usage (5 sms/day, 15min call/day). I am not lying, this is true. However battery life depends on a lot of things: bandwith of your carrier, coverage of the network, usage of extra functions (i dont use any, except for some games, 15min a day). I live in the netherlands so coverage is fine. I also use the 900MhZ netweork, menaing that it uses less energy from my mobile.
So stop saying that people are lying. Differences in quality of the mobile and battery are evident, as well as the difference in usage and coverage!
In the netherlands they did a survey.
Sony Ericsson is elected as the manufacturer who makes the best mobile devices. The survey was done under sellers and consumers.
The survey was done for 3 years. Whereas SE showed each year progress in developing quality, Nokia was flat. Samsung came back in 2006. Lets be honest, SE has best battery, best design, best features (they make phones complete) so I think they deserve this.
Only credit for Nokia is the 16mln screen which I compared to the 256k screen of SE and 16mln is obviously better, you can tell by looking at it. Also Nokia has better louspeakers I think.
SE has good callclarity, lets say excellent, also excellent reception.
So I am really regretting the fact I bought the 6300 because I liked the 16mln screen, but SE makes you enjoy the features in the phone without being afraid of a dying accu.
people complaining of battery are people who love the features on the 6300 but get frustrated by the samsung like battery and because they have bought a nokia they get very disappointed with the fact its bad as samsung batteries.
I think nokia is gonna lose customers on this one, to bad.
Somebody in this forum said that the longest battery life on any colour screen cell phone is 5 hours. I have not been on a straight call with my 6300 to see how long a full charge will last me, I will do so tonight and report back here tomorrow.
However, sometime ago after my phone was fully charged I played around with it, videos, a game or two and music, that was about 30 mins. worth of playing time. I went on a call after that and the battery endure 3 hrs. 32mins. so if I hadn't played with the phone for 30 mins. before making the call the phone would have given me OVER 4 hours of talk time.
People who complain about the battery in this phone either has a defective battery, defective phone or belongs to a SE forum.
The first time I held a Nokia 6300 in my hands I enjoyed the experience. The first time I held a 6300 in my hands the experience was mesmerizing. The VERY FIRST Nokia 6300 I held in my hands was 'Made by Nokia' and I did not see any fault with it.
GO FOR IT.
