You forgot to mention the in-built GPS receiver, we have one in our store and the GPS works well.
Erick , 08 Jun 2009As this article rightly points out whilst this device could be considered appealing it faces a... more6500 was a shocking phone mate, way to many problems. Basicly this phone would have to be offered at the same price as the 6300 and even then it is ridiculously ugly in comparison to the 6300. In all honesty the 6300 was a wonderful fluke by nokia, it really hit the right market, but it took 6 months n price drops before it found it. In all honesty it is the benchmark for what most people at least want in a phone, so it sells mass amounts because the carriers (in australia) subsidize it to be nice and cheap and available for any social status.
Overall the features are quite good for the intermediate level handphone. However, I still prefer the layout of 6300 since it looks like more professional than 6303.
Why is there no support for 850mhz? I would buy this in an instant if only it would work in the USA on both frequencies used here...
Just in case you are wondering why Nokia are even bothering to come up with a phone of this spec, the answer is simple. The old Nokia 6300 sells in massive numbers despite being ancient - it's usually in the top 5 (if not the top 3) for most retailers. The 6300 is probably one of Nokia's biggest selling phones ever - and even though they have tried to replace it a couple of times, people still want it!
a souped-up 6300 indeed
In a short period of time if this handset will be succesful to the worldwide market Nokia will release the 6303i as well ( equipped with 3g and Wi-Fi )believe that.
jcgcx, 09 Jun 2009In the final part of the review, it's mentioned that the SE K850 uses Memory Stick Micro, but ... moreyeah, u're right.. k850 has dual memory cards slot.. mircoSD!..
I prefer k850 instead
In the final part of the review, it's mentioned that the SE K850 uses Memory Stick Micro, but there's no mention of its dual-format ability which makes it able of use microSD, so there were no difference!!
the phone looks pretty good, I held it in my hand
at this time it is still expensive (150 euro in Romania), but maybe in a few months the price tag will be more appealing
As this article rightly points out whilst this device could be considered appealing it faces a market with an array of alternatives often better equipped despite being regarded as "old" even this is only in reality by a matter of months or a year or so. In my view its only chance of market success is through comprehensive support and subsidy by the carriers. Individual buyers will simply opt for better equipped devices that were even flegships from a year or so ago. Within the Nokia camp this device faces strong albeit slightly more epxensive alternatives from the 6500 Slide, an excellently built feature device and the outstanding Nokia E51. Samsung´s G600 and U800 will probably be now available for around the same price as will Sony Ericsson´s K660i with its faster web connectivity. Also, if you look carefully the LG Viewty is now available very reasonably and there is no doubting this remains a formidable multimedia device. There is great choice out there.
Look at the icons - booooring!
Its nice, but I prefer my 6300i
is nice but what i really interest is review of 6700 classic. hope soon!
thanks,gsmarena,for this review!
