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 fìrmware 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 16mìllion colour screen under sunlight, ì have a great feeling the 6300 will defiantly b the best selling phone for 2007.
i ordered mine today, hope it will fit my expectations, just one question, i use my phone just to be reachable, so i hardly use the phone to call somebody, dont listen mp3 etc.
then, how long will the accu last, taking in account that i dont make phone calls, only receive. Thanks for reply.
Another way of checking your firmware is to key in *#0000# in standby mode. Anyway, follow WAZOMBA's advice to get the updates.
Sorry about the late reply but I'm NOT exactly sure how many text messages can be stored in the 6300. However, I will tell you how many I have so far. It goes as follows:
225 inbox messages, 33 sent messages and 48 saved messages. That's quite a lot considering the fact that everything is shared due to the dynamic memory. Regardless of where messages are, there are regarded as a set amount; so, so far, I have 306 sms in my phone...and I have NOT received a 'Message Memory Almost Full' warning yet!
I wouldn't be surprised if it's unlimited due to the fact that certain things are unlimited like video recording and voice recording(wishing thinking though).
Whatever the case, it stores a good amount.
to ABDULLAH: to get see what version of firmware u have goto settings scroll to PHONE enter that then scroll to PHONE UPDATES there u will find u current firmware n also b able to download v5.00 firmware enter DOWNLOAD SOFTWARE it will connect u to nokia n give u v5.00 firmware, it wìll b as a APPLICATION n u need to install it, follow the instructions, n u will then have v5.00 firmware loaded in ur phone

Hi! i really want to see the quality of the fotoz taken from the 6300 can u email me sum!plz

To -Original Jamaican
How can i get firmware v5.00? Is there any site to download it?
How can i find out what version of firmware is in my 6300 at this moment?
This phone is just lovely. The camera takes fantastic photos but strange enough the video zoom is clearer than the camera zoom...one would think it would be the other way around. The video clarity is very clear (once you hold the phone very still during video capture). Pikabu you will see what I'm talking about when I send you the photos and videos then you can come back here and tell everyone what you think.
to REENA: i think the 6300 can store 200 sms msgs but in not positive
to ORIGINAL JAMAICAN: yeah i can see your point i suppose the 6300's music player is much better than 1 found ìn a series 60 smartphone.
I have seen pictures on this site from 6300,but anyway,plz send it to my e-mail.
(i have also few questions for you )
I will correct you in a good way my friend. The 6300's music player is better than many Symbian music players. I was using a E50 over the weekened and instantly forgot about it and went back to my 6300 Music Player. It looks better and has better functionally. For instance, with the S60 3rd Edition Music Player you have to scroll to the desired button to control the music, with the 6300 you simply use the Navipad as a very quicker way of controlling the audio - left to rewind, right to fast forward, middle button to play and pause etc. With the Symbian S60 3rd Edition phones you have to use up/down keys to scroll to the rewind / fastforward / stop / skip...that's VERY FRUSTRATING and a much slower process of controlling music so clearly the 6300 Music Player is a better one. Big up WAZOMBA.
The 6300 takes fantastic photos and videos (once you set them to high quality).
For all of you who are contemplating whether to buy it or not, I will show you some photos and video clips I took with mine. I'm sure you will all be surprised at the clarity a cell phone is able to produce.
Whoever is interested let me know and I will send them to your mailbox. I'm sure after seeing the quality photos and videos your decision to get the phone will be further strengthened.
Once again, my 6300 is European made (Hungary) and has firmware revision version 5.00.
