My Nokia 6300 is in perfect working condition. No battery problems, excellent photos from the camera and music player sounds sweet.
My first 3 charges were done overnight for 24 hours each.
To that person who complained about his Hungarian model and who claims that the 6300 WON'T sell...please read this business news article:
To the USER WHO COMPLAINS about his Hungarian model with firmware v5.00.
It's either one thing or the other...either you are a Sony Ericsson fan LYING that you have a 6300 and trying to put down Nokia OR you received a faulty 6300 unit.
My Hungarian 6300 works perfectly, so does WAZOMBA and others who have an Hungarian model.
I STILL have my Nokia 6230 and when my 6300 is charging I use my 6230 for calls. Listening through the 6230 earpiece (not earphones) feels so much different now. The 6230 sounds so deep now whereas the 6300 sounds sharp and have a treble like sound to it...more so when you activate the voice clarity feature. Both the earpiece speaker and loudspeaker on the 6300 outperforms the 6230 by far...and this is someone who loves the 6230 probably more than anybody else on earth. When I first got the 6230 I thought that would have been my very last phone...based on how pleased I was with it. After upgrading to the 6300 I felt like I was in a whole new world again. The 6300 blew away the 6230 in every department except speed...the 6230 is a tab bit faster in some areas and the very same as the 6300 in other areas...that is where speed is concerned.
I normally changed my phone within a few months or a year maximum BUT I kept the 6230 for 2 years!!! That should show how much I love the 6230. So when I give another phone more ratings than the 6230 that phone has to be a DAMN GOOD phone...which is exactly what the 6300. NUFF SAID!!!
P.S. ALL YOU SONY ERICSSON FANS PLEASE STAY IN YOUR FORUM BECAUSE NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY TO DISCOURAGE NOKIA FANS, NOKIA IS STILL NUMBER 1!!!!!!
To everybody with complaints about the battery:
charge your battery overnight (during all night). Use it until it is almost empty. Then charge it one night again. Do this 3 times and you get a standby time with normal use of 5-6 days. And yes my 6300 comes from Hungary.
questions: email me
hi, does anyone have any probs sending pictures on there phone? i cant send any don't know whats wrong.
Hope u all r fine.
I do not own this phone personally, but from the reviews & opinions that I have gone thru, I am gettin mixed reviews frm people with regards to the battery/ camera. Some people say itz good, some say itz bad. Therez such a major difference in people's opinion, which finaly makes me conclude that the phone made in Hungary is of good quality or eslse if manufactured somewhereelse then the chances of the battery being of a very bad quality is very high.
So people, finaly if u r planning to get this phone, then make sure that the sealed box states that, the phone is made in Hungary. I am planning to gift this phone to a friend so I would surly take that precaution just to make sure that she gets a good quality phone & n problemas arises due to the battery in the future. Also wanted to thank every1 for their reviews, which helps us to decide on things & also just to inform you that your reviews/ opinions is really resepectec.
i put it off the charger yesterday at one o clock afternoon, and now 9:00 hrs in the morning it says the battery is almost empty.
all i did was a little bit downloading from internet scrolling through menu and two phonecalls of maybe 5 minutes. And its made in hungary and has firmware 5.00.
would I do the same things with the se k800 i still would have got 75% of my accu left.
this is definitely a downgrade for me, coming from se k800.
if they wont take it back i will give this piece to one of my nieces, at least someone becomes happy then, i will go on another year with my reliable k800 and not to metion the fabulous features it has, which you can use without being scared of battery runnug out, and soundquality durung calls is much much better then 6300, even that they couldnt handle.
in following of my earlier post:
it is hungarian made, it has 5.00 firmware and still it comes not an inch near my old K800. Even the soundquality during phonecall is less then k800 and even less then 6230.
The camera is very very poor.
If your batteryperformance is this low, why put al these features in the phone?? Nokia will be punished by the consumers fo this, I demand quality, because I pay money for this device.
I am really really dissappointed, if only soundquality during calls was good even that.
i have tried nokia 6300. from the very first look i have become a fan of this book. its slimness is such that i dont need any girlfriend to try my hand on.
Maybe just a glitch in the upgrade. You can try to upgrade it back to v5.00 or do a factory reset, turn the phone off, take out the SIM, Memory Card and battery and leave it that way for 24 hours. Either way may or may not work but this is the only feasible solution I can think of at the moment.
to ORIGINAL JAMAICAN: im fine thanx hope u r, im still looking for the cd just don't know where i put it :-(, my phone is running ok battery is performing ok, got 1 slight problem tho ever since ive upgraded to v.5.00 firmware it has a tendancy to reboot itself when i connect to the internet or make call sometimes, have u got an idea what might b wrong O.J. ?
My camera takes fantastic photos. PIKABU I even have some new photos which look clearer than the last set I showed you, a few of the photos strongly challenges the average 2MP standalone cameras.
My phone is HUNGARIAN made meaning the highest quality components are used resulting in high performance in every department. Which is why the European phones cost a bit more but you pay for quality right ?
WAZOMBA how are things with you ? The music sounds really nice through the headset and I may just get addicted to listening to the music through the earphones more than you.
Have you found the CD yet ?
Yes in mine also battery life is pretty good. It is not an issue. It allows programs to connect to the internet. under settings go to configuration and add a personal configuration as a access point and enable it as default. Use proxy and apn setting as per your carrier (avalable in their websites)
Answer me...Where is your phone made ?!?
P.S Interesting,i ask this 3rd time ,and no one form "complaint persons" arent gonna answer me...
i bought this phone last month design and size is very good but its camera is so wrost it is totally fraud about 2 mega pixel i thing it not a vga camera its a very shamefull fr nokia to disappoint his coustomers video is only 176*146 battarey is also very bad i suggest all of you dat dont waste ur money on this bluddy phone.........
BATTERY: battery this battery that battery crap, will people PLEASE stop complaining about the battery, me personally think the battery is very good i must admit it lasts alot longer now i have version 5.00 firmware, but if i just use it for calls amd texts WHICH THE PHONE IS MEANT FOR!!! it wud last me 5/6 days at least, also if ur phone isnt european u will find more problems, mine is hungarian made n that is the BEST
To man underneath me...
Where is your phone made ?!
Made by nokia od Made by (some European country)
got my 6300 yesterday, put it on the charger for 12 hours.
what did i do: download some ringtones and wallpapers and themes and one game, checked out yahoo go for 5 minutes, explored the menu for a couple of hours and guess what there is only a quarter left of the battery and i didnt even make a phonecall!!! This after only 5 hours, ridiculous.
very very poor!! dont understand people to vote this device to the top of list.
no more nokia for me, i am very gratefull i only took a one year contract, after 9 months i will go for a Sony Ericsson again, for sure, at least they understand the importance of battery performance.
i will return this device if they allow so, otherwise i am stuck with this piece of crap for 9 months, i even might use my old k800 for this period and put this thing away.
I'm tired of hearing people complain about the 6300's battery.
Yesterday in the afternoon I played some music videos and songs. Then later on I was on a call for 3hrs. 7mins. then I played some games and then this morning after 3 a.m. the battery went dead. I know for a fact that if I didn't use any of the multimedia features I would have gotten about 4 hours of straight talk time with the phone...maybe even more too SO stop complaining about the battery. I'm SICK and TIRED of all the complaints.
For those who aren't aware...firmware revision version 5.00 is the operating system to have on your phone NOT the previous ones.
