I've bought this phone about a month ago and i might say this is definitly one of the nicest phones out there. I chose it over nokia 6120 classic because i wouldn't need 3G as i haven't ever needed it and besides the prices of that feature here are quite high. More, the design is sooo much better and the feel of it in your hand: the other i could felt it was made out of plastic and the aluminium on 6300 make it much more appealing to the sight and touch. the only things that i could regret is the stereo speakers and the symbian s60, but the great s40 on the 6300 made that point not worthy.
certainly it isn't a phone for business men or mp3/games addicts, because of the batery issue. for those who know how to treat a mobile phone and that have a low to average use of it, it can last for 4 days, but i can say 3 may be the normal. Of course if you spend all the day using your phones features it will only last 1 day, just like i've done in the first day i put my hand on it. a trick i've learn from a post here to save battery is to always push the red/end call button after lock the keyboard, and of course always charge it fully. I've done the first 3 charges of 12+ hours with phone off.
As for the phone itself i'm so glad i bought it. the first thing you'll notice is the astonishing 16M color glossy display. All of my friends want to use it a little bit and they all say "oh.. it's so small and cool". The sound could be louder yes, but no problem to me. mp3 quality is very good with or without earphones. camera is ok for a phone as i don't give it much use.
Afterall 6300 is a great phone with all the top basic features. It is for sure a well made combination of style and functionality and it's for those with average use of a cellphone. A great buy! 8.5/10
P.S. If you use the # key to silence the phone don't upgrade your firmware to 5.00 as it locks that function :S . However, i was having some problems with the counting of the characters and the number of messages of a message and the upgrade had it solved.
I've purchase this phone two days ago. I like the design but I have a few problem as: the volume is low even if it is fixed on high volume,after a few minutes of talking the phone become hot. For the same reasons I have changed my old N70 with this one thinkind that I will not have the same problems but I was wrong.. What is going on ?
Purchased 6300 two days back and am already regretting it. Battery life is very short and the message alerts & ring tones are almost inaudible .On top of that the phone hangs/restarts every few minutes - so much so that I can't speak to anyone for more than a minute. Can these problems be resolved in any way? I haven't checked for any other problem yet.
The sound record system of Nokia 6300 is very very defective as it cannot record as like other mobile such as N72, Sony erricssion, etc. The len of camera also very danger of scratch due to intact with surface whenever it place on object having a updown surface.The voice as set in the voice command of it cannot be tranform into ringtone.
Al r telling the battery problem regarding this Nokia6300.Is it any improvement after relaunching? If not why people will go for this phone even all features and look is there? Please suggest me yes or no.
Go to nokia unitedkingdon and download the english user manual,let me know if you have a problem getting it
I currently have 149 SMS in my inbox so what is that plank on about saying it can take only 50!!!
Everyone admires this phone. Only problem is battery life but overall you can't really get better. 6500 classic may not be different enough to upgrade to.
