i got my nokia 6300 after a lot of online research and trying out my friends phone(same one) whenever i got the chance.what matters more to me than features is the look and feel of the phone as a whole and i am more than satisfied!the screen is simply mesmerizing and the blue backlight on the pads and the steel casing with black glossy finish just gives it the extra edge.its very user friendly and pretty fast and has all the basic features you need in a "phone" and then a bit more to guarantee complete satisfaction.
the only downside is the battery life but it has been mentioned everywhere and one shouldn't expect any miracles.the camera is mediocre compared to other 2mp phones and has an average shutter speed.thats more than enough for regular users who use their phones just to make calls and send a few texts and play some games or listen to the radio or mp3.the sound quality of the loud speaker isn't that great but good enough to ring in your ears in a crowded place.the vibration is strong.the phone feels very sturdy and fits excellently in my hand.
im very critical about the way my phone looks and i've noticed that the blue keypad has some gaps in it which shines white light from the inside and ruins the whole feel of it.the nickel 4 way navigational key makes this sound when i press the down button and thats very irritating to my ears.but i guess its just my phone and it came from a faulty batch.i hope they give me another one but i don't think i can change it just because it makes a sound :S.other than than i give this phone a well deserved 9 out of a 10 scale.its by far the best phone i've had and i have a feeling ill stick to it for a long time.
if you want a phone that looks sleek and is better than average in every other aspect then you should definetly buy this.
can anyone tell me about the phone memory capacity..apart from the sd card..
I have this one, i m using that mobile from last 8 days and the people who says it had battry prob, i want to tell them use it firdt properly then say.
Well it is a great phone however it heats like crazy specially if u use it alot the phone gets so hot on your ears and the back of the phone is hot too.
it is realy realy realy beautiful!but...
but it's operation system is too low level.
even lower than nokia previous models(6630,...)
if it was a little higher,it could be best!
i have this phone but when i go to put a MP4 on it, it dosn't display the video but the sound works on it though. that is only one of the main problems with it, but one thing it should have is 3G because it needs it for some providing internets such as vodafone..
there is a memory problem , sometimes the device can't see the memory card..
like all says it is a great phone 2mp camara, mp3, fm radio, 2.0 version bluetooth, edge, sexy body & 16m colour screen make this phone a great pick due to s40 it has great speed and easy to use i have this phone since 2 month & connect to net through this and trust me it has edge speed of 30-42 kb\sec but one & only problem is battery back up but it remain far behind when u see all other featore in this.
I like very much this phone but i have problems with camera..i mean green colour apears more than other colours. Has anyone same problem??? or i have bad luck with it? ......
I have purchased recntly 10 days back.I had N-91 music edition and 3230.This phone has very weak ringer and some times not audible in the same room.I also want to change the set,what is use of a set when u cannot take a call at ease.
i dont own a unit like this but my uncle has one en i really like the fone.it was so easy to use w/its two megapixel cam...i just wish that nokia will create a fone same as 6300 but that is 3g capable.pls upgrade this fone...
Today I buy nokia 6300 but the microphone don't wokrs.Probably is a defective... damn! I'm disappointed so much. Tomorrow I will to turning back the telefon in the store.
Great phone, but defective. Bad luck or bad phone?
i just bought the phone and i think it is one of the best slim phone nokia has ever produced.All i need to know is about Video call,Is it available onmy phone...................
i've no complains about this phone but one - the shite battery life. i have to charge it every day, which is very uncomfortable. for example, today i had to charge it twice. it ha probably the worst battery ever. otherwise it's a great phone.
I have read tons of user reviews from you people and I will try to clear up the general questions.
First of all, if you want to get the best result from this phone make sure you have firmware v5.00. If you have v4.71 or older, upgrade to v5.00 from Nokia's website.
The camera takes lovely photos in sunny weather conditions and not so sunny conditions. I am yet to try night mode but you will see noise in the picture. According to GSMArena, the night mode is wonderful.
The biggest issue is battery life. First of all, the phone doesn't come with the power down clock enable. Because of this, the light will turn after the phone hasn't been used for a while and then you will see the wallpaper on a dark screen. From experience, I can tell that this type of thing eats up the battery just the same. Check display settings and ensure that all power saving modes are on and then go to the screen-saver option and enable digital or analog clock from their-I rather the digital because it shows the date. Eventually the screen will go completely dead and you WON'T see the digital clock any longer BUT at least the screen is off and the battery consumption will be extremely low.
The second major complaint is about the video playback. Video playback works great on my 6300. The trick is that you have to encode the video at 176x144 resolution. To get good clarity use MPEG-4 (MPG4, MP4) to encode the video and you can experiment with bitrates starting from 128kbps-216kbps. Anything over 216kbps is sure to move out of sync. My videos plays fine at 216kbps.
The phone poses a challenge especially to new users but there's a way to get around any obstacle that this phone might possess. Just experiment.
can anyone tell me about the performance of this phone regarding its camera resolution, hw it works in the night mode.
Can we move sms from fone memory to extended memory. Infect i want to know how many sms can be stored in this fone?
