PEOPLE, as I said before, my NOKIA 6300 was made in HUNGARY and I recognize it as being a top class version. Believe it or not, the screen is even prettier than the 'Made by Nokia' (which is the Asian/Chinese) version. Ever since I compared my old Hungarian 6230 to the Chinese version and saw the MAJOR difference in screen quality I decided to stick to Hungary made phones. You will find that NOT only the screen are of higher class, the sound system too, the sound is as sharp as the screen :-)
You can't go wrong with a HUNGARIAN made 6300 with firmware v5.00.
6110 - 6230 - 6230i - 6233 - 6300. That is what I call evolution. But I still use my good old 6230 from time to time
I think i know what that photo means where it says MADE IN HUNGARY if u get a 6300 that was made in hungary ur getting a top class 6300 with excellent perfomance
6300 is an amazing phone, excellent 16million colour screen, great sound quality and the battery performance isnt to bad either.
Pictures are excellent,and video is pretty good ! :)
I will definitely buy 6300,just to collect some more money :).
Only thing which i am worried is "MADE IN (BY) " thing. On this picture it is -made in hungary- ...
to JIMBO74: hang on mate did u buy ur 6300 SIM FREE, have u got ur network internet settings stored in ur phone, im on ORANGE and i managed to download the update directly from my phone, i think that service is network dependant an not all networks allow OTA upgrading, u cud try the nokia updating software that is bundled on the cdrom i think, but u need broadband and a miniusb cable any mini usb cable will work with the 6300
to JIMBO74: what network are with? im with ORANGE and it did it for me now problems, i think that option is NETWORK dependant, an not all the networks allow to download OTA phone updates, u cud try the nokia phone updating software that i think is bundled on the cdrom u get but u need broadband to download it, if u can't do that mate then i don't know what to suggest sorry :-(
i tried that mate but when it goes to connect to the intrnet it says no network connection unable to down load..... any ideas???
to JIMBO74: I posted a comment on here earlier describing how to get v5.00 fimware on ur phone, u can download it directly from ur 6300, go to the post and follow my instructions and u should get v5.00 firmware no problem :-)
Well I guess middle-range high end is probably the best way to describe it because as you know, Nokia considers their N series phone as their utmost high end. I just DON'T want any smartphones, whether it be Nokia or any other brand. They are all too buggy and too slow which is not necessarily the phone manufacturers fault but more a fault on the 3rd party company who creates the OS (Symbian in most cases).
to ORIGINAL JAMAICAN: ive read GSMaren'as review, ive read Mobělereview.coms review, ive read Mobilechoice.coms review, and none of those have had a bad thing to say about this phone they all love it, so i say its great work by NOKIA for making n releasing an OUTSTANDING middle range high end phone :-)
Many phone screens fade badly in sunlight, whether it be TFT, CSTN, STN or any other type. Of all the type of screens TFT screen aren't supposed to really fade in direct sunlight. My old Nokia 6230 which has a TFT screen, faded to an extent but was fairly legible just the same.
One thing I love about the 6300 is that under direct sunlight the screen is very legible. I remember the first time I scrolled through my contacts in direct sunlight and I was shocked to see that the contacts name had the same reflective look as the 'NOKIA' name above the screen. I mean The NOKIA name reflected and the contact names reflected to the same extent and the contacts names became silver just as the 'NOKIA' name above the screen. It was such a beautiful sight. Just picture a motor vehicle behind a bicyle and the motor vehicle's headlamp shining on the bicycle reflectors...that's how the contact names looked in the bright sun. Nokia never fails to amaze me!!!
to ALL: On a daily avearge i have about 5 outgoing calls n about 4/5 incoming calls, send quite a few sms n reciece quite a few, if i use my phone just for CALLS-TEXTS my battery last me 5 and a half days, now thats flipping good for a nokia battery, i have got fěrmware v5.00 so thats probably the reason, with the old firmware it wud only last me 2days just making CALLS-TEXTS.
To ALL THOSE PEOPLE in doubt about Nokia 6300 being a best seller or even a contender for PHONE OF THE YEAR...please read this official business news publication:
Thanks for the info but I'm NOT surprised because I noticed that of all the 16 million colour screen phones...even though their aren't many on the market...the 6300 is praised highly out of the whole bunch. The 6131 which was Nokia's first 16 million colour screen didn't get any praise, even though the resolution is QVGA (240x320). Nokia did something to the 6300 screen to make it outperform others. That's why every forum you check EVERYBODY commends the screen and says it's crystal clear and cannot be beaten. It is said to be better than any HDTV or LCD Monitor out there. Most people says that you just have to see it to believe it and I have finally seen it but still can't believe any screen at all could be this clear. Wazomba, I tell you, EVERY SINGLE SOUL out their commends the screen, no matter how much they BASH other areas of the phone like the battery. One particular official reviewer said he enjoyed reviewing the phone, and said that Nokia cannot be commended enough for this utmost hight quality screen found in the 6300. It's already phone of the year in my book!!!
To the NAMELESS person:
The fact that your main purpose of getting the 6300 is to receive calls and not use the multimedia features (which greatly drains any phone battery), then, depending on the amount of calls you receive the battery may last you about 3-4 days. Maybe even 5 days who knows, it all depends on the amount of calls you receive. How many calls do you receive on average per day ?
To PIKABU & ABDULLAH:
I sent you some photos and a video clips. Some of the photos are candid ones, as in people walking etc. but they look just as great as the still subject photos.
I want both of you to reply here and tell the others what you think about the photos and video.
One thing I like about the photo is that when you right click a photo file and go to properties you will see Nokia 6300 as being the make and model of the camera which took the photos. My old phone (Nokia 6230) didn't have that feature
to ORIGINAL JAMAICAN: did u know the the nokia 6300's 16million colour screem out performs the nokia N95 16měllion colour screen under sunlight, ě have a great feeling the 6300 will defiantly b the best selling phone for 2007.
