I've just bought one and I'm really pleased with it. Some people may find it a little basic (due to the video playback format not supporting MP4 and the fact that there's no flash or auto focus on the camera), but it's still a really good handset for the money. It's not a "me too" Sony Ericsson and not another wafer thin Samsung, it somewhere in the middle.
THE BATTERY LIFE IS NOT AS BAD AS EVERYONE SAYS!
Condition the battery on your first charges (charge overnight the first time you use it and let the battery run out fully for the first three to four charges and you'll be fine after that), don't expect it to last forever on the first charge!!!!
Camera is pretty good in good daylight and I've seen worse at night shots than the 6300. Speaker is loud and clear, custom EQ settings for the music player, fast Bluetooth data transfer (140KB/s), excellent call quality, custom message tones, expandable memory (up to 2GB micro SD, 128MB card included) and with the Nokia AD50 adaptor, you can convert the 2.5mm headphone jack into a 3.5mm socket and use any headphones! Display quality is excellent in just about all lighting conditions.
Well worth the £99.99 I payed for it on Virgin PAYG (with the up to £70 of free calls bundle offer included and £5.00 on the SIM right away to start making calls and 3p texts). Excellent!

For you people who asks certain questions about this phone, the SPECIFICATIONS LINK is right beside you to click on.
I'm tired of you people complaining about the battery. The battery is fine. Why is it that for all the phones I have gone through I NEVER yet encountered any of the problems that you people on GSMArena complain about ??????
I observed this mobile set is very nice but the battery time is very low.
Well... if you want mp3 that kicks ass then... the only choice is... SE W8xx. Those gizmos can play music for approx. 30h
Its cool xept battery and some problem with video recording..for best results of stereo effects on the music and keep it on a table or plane surface..rocks..
I finally have a STRONG SAY in this discussion now that I have MY VERY OWN Nokia 6300. For 2 years I kept my old 6230 because I didn't see anything better to upgrade to...until now.
This is not "an average phone" this goes way beyond many phones in the same class. I used it for the very first time yesterday evening after it finished charging for the first time, which was a 24 hour charge...that's right I left it charging for 1 full day. I used it non-stop from the moment I turned it on. I did just about everything you could think of from viewing photos to playing games. I used the phone continuously until the battery died. I got 7 1/2 hours worth of continuous use out of the Nokia 6300 battery which many people complain about being weak and running out after 5 hours. That was only the very first charge and I got 7 1/2 hours out of it! I plan to do the same for the next 2 charges, 24 hours each. I'm sure that it will only get stronger after the next charge.
Overall I find it to be a very excellent phone. It blew me away completely. I was astounded by quite a few things...and this is somebody who's coming from a FANTASTIC 6230 which changed the mobile world. The screen is not just great it's unbelievable and viewing 3D games on it gives you the feeling that you are playing a PS1 or PS2. What more could you ask for from a phone. It's very fast too...even though accessing the menu on my 6230 was a tad bit faster...but then the 6230 didn't handle the MMC as fast as how it handled the internal features YET the new 6300 handles the Memory Card almost as fast as it accessess it's menu and internal features. So you give an take a bit in some areas but all in all I'm 100% happy with my 6300 and I give it 100%...I don't need to see anything more to justify that rating. In other words the Nokia 6300 deserves 10 out of 10 without any hesitation.
For the record it's the #1 selling phone for 2007 and mine was made by Hungary which is far more superior than the Asian/Chinese version.
What kind of idiot uses their phone to listen to music anyway? Phones are for communication. Which is what I use it for, calling texting, this phone is perfect. Turn off bluetooth if you have battery issues.
i am just about to buy this phone but im not really sure, im hearing good things and bad things about it, someone just give me a yes or no
i got 1 & its jz an average phone but its worth it cz 6300 is LOUD & SLIM(",)
