OK. A couple of things I'd like to add to my review posted earlier this week - Mostly cons :(
- The battery cover and the black top part on the rear of the phone are extremely prone to scratches.
- The sound quality through the earphones is a bit poor. Lots of hiss noise, plus, I some times can hear my "exhalation" through them.
I got mine through "craiglist" classifieds. The guy had signed a contract and didn't need the phone so I got the phone off of him. It's locked though. You should wait until an unlocking method gets released, if looking for an unlocked one.
Currently I M having 6230 i here..
Can U inform the Performance of 6300 with my 6230i ??
Which is better???
Should I sold the 6230i ???
Pls suggest me....
It is the best phone in its price range. Nokia has finally come out with a slim and classy model with 16 million colors.
I'm guessing the battery cover is prone to scratches, but I've had my phone for a few weeks now and mines still spotless (then again, I don't just throw it into a bag, I make sure it's not with other things when I carry it about)
to a happy owner where did you get the north american version of the 6300.i would like to get one please respond thanks
We (carphone warehouse) highly recommend this handset. Especially if you're a nokia fan and probably, like most people had the 6230i, don't bother look at the 3G version Nokia 6233, the 6300 is the one to have.
Sleek, stylish, easy to use. A lot of people who have the Nokia N80, Sony Ericsson W-series, or previous Samsungs like D600 or D800 have upgraded to this phone. Spec wise most would call it a downgrade or just getting a similar phone to what you already have, don't be fooled. This phone is above all.
To the people who ask why or if it gets hot whilst using it or charging the answer to that is all phones do, this one just comes in a stainless steel body, so you feel it more. Its science. Camera is as clear as. No problems with that, don't think that the Cybrshot phones have better quality when viewing on the phones screen, the 6300 has same resolution but 16million colours on the display. You will only notice the quality between a 2mp and 3.2mp camera phone if you're blowing it up lets say, A4 size and above.
I give this phone 8.5/10. Only drawback is battery life, but also Nokia should've made this phone with 3G, and A2DP bluetooth profile.
I have this phone since 2 weeks. No, the handset doesn't get hot while charging, but the battery is very poor...
But it's a very nice phone
So I got my Nokia 6300 (North American Version) a couple of days ago. Here's my brief review:
- Acceptable SAR rating (my first preference)
- Excellent signal reception (my second preference)
- Excellent screen quality (very nice and sharp)
- Good user interface, although I'm more used to Sony Ericsson style
- Good call clarity and quality, esp. when the "Voice Clarity" option is active
- Comes with a 512MB SanDisk memory, that's sweet!! :D
- Has a mini USB port which makes it really convenient for software installations
- Thin and sleek, makes it fit into your pocket really easily
- High quality speaker phone
- Won't accept large file installation (or there's way that I'm not aware of yet)
- It gets a bit warm if talking for long
- No "incoming call restrictions" option
- No "hide your Caller ID per call" option, u have to use ur provider's code before dialing
- No USB cable included
- Poor vibrating alert, I can't really feel it
- Average quality earphones
- The USB port cover is very hard to open (seems Nokia still has problems in designing "Covers"!!)
- Camera could be better
hassan : 6300 :for this handset ther is no usb cable, cable is available in the nokia showroom, there is no cable in the box....
You say the phone has a week camra.
Infact a photo taken on the 6300 will look better that a photo taken on say the samsung D900 this is because the screen resolution for this phone is 16M compared with most phones 262k, the only time you will notice the difference between a 2MP and a 3MP camra is when the image is enlarged or "blown up" get your facts right before you gotalking about things you dont know anything about.
Okey this is almost a good fone but with a very weak camera and loud speaker, and the battery life is also weak... so NO to this fone if you want a good camera, a speaker like sony erricson, and a battery
Great fone. Good picture n sound quality n looks stylish
short battery life, get heated a bit
if u have big fingers navigation is a problem
n the volume control on the side is a bit difficult to use.
i got this mobiles abt two days ago....
i just simply love it.....
clarity and resolution wow... awesome.....
sound is also gud......the battery is nt tat gud..u have to charge it once a day....tats bcoz of the resolution..it drains a lot of battery..... the phone gets heated up while talkin for a long time.....nt very hot and all... bt since its a stainless steel body.....no other go.....fone is sexy , stylish , slim yet powerful.... all in all the fone is worth it......i ll give this fone 9/10..the best phone i have ever had.....
so if ya guys plannin to buy t.... wat ya waiting for.... its better than N72...go out and get urselves this mobile.....
its better than N72
Tech issue : In this phone there is a problem with browser, when we connect to gprs, the connection will not be stable, keeps on disconnting, these problem occurs only on nokia ,6300 6600,3230,,7610,......
Dear roro.. u might need to check the sound volume buttons..juz located at the top right ... after u on your loud speaker on . if still cant might need to check ur provider for more faster and better results.
dear user... u may need to check inside ur setting and the tones ...u might need to set the profile and change the songs/mp3....then u can select ur mp3 d, if still can't u really need to send back for warranty claims or contact ur service/phone provider.
