Nokia 6300 review: The slim Finn

 

Nokia 6300 is the new Nokia star in the Series 40 3rd Edition line. It attacks with conservative design, miniUSB, and a slim body with steel plates. The famous Finnish mobile manufacturer has been long expected to launch a new high-end, classic-look...

attractive yet conservative design ; 16M colors TFT display with QVGA resolution ; Series 40 3rd Edition user interface ; 2 megapixel camera ; microSD memory card slot ; FM radio ; standard miniUSB connector ; 2.5 mm audio jack ; Bluetooth with A2DP...

prone to fingerprints ; no UMTS support ; unsatisfactory camera performance ; portrait orientation of images taken with the camera ; videos taken at QCIF (176 x 144 pixels) resolution only ; side keys are difficult to press ; no Infrared port

Nokia 6300 comes in a decent black & silver combination. Everything that is silver is made of steel. Black areas are made of glossy plastic material. The display and the functional part of the keypad are located inside a black frame that stands out...

Nokia 6300

 

The 6300, Nokia's latest unlocked candy-bar phone, is svelte and tempting.

Slim and stylish design. Very bright screen. Lightweight. Excellent keypad.

So-so camera. Weak battery life. No 3G support. Lacks e-mail client.

Nokia 6300 Review

 

The Nokia 6300 comes in neutral gray and black colors. The phone feels durable and pleasant to touch. It features FM radio, audio player, 2MP camera, EDGE and Bluetooth connectivity options.

The Nokia 6300 has a very nice large screen, and sufficiently sized keypad for fast, convenient texting. This makes the 6300 a very suitable phone for youngsters who want to keep in touch with their friends throughout the day. The large screen...

Nokia 6300 Review

 

Just above the 10 mm thickness barrier, Nokia 6300 continues the design line of its older 6xxx predecessors. While unusual for Nokia to imprint such a slim look to one of its terminals, Nokia 6300 is an important milestone in Nokia's vision over the...

Certainly the best points of the device are scored by the design and the marvelous display. Its slim size and look undeniably attract more consumers than its technical specs. Average performance on multimedia feats is also notable in spite of the fact...

Maybe a better version of Symbian platform could've improved the device's functionality, but that depends on everyone�s taste. The battery cannot "sustain" the big bright display, thus you'll register fast depletion of energy

Nokia 6300 Review

 

Feature-rich, lightweight and thin, Good picture quality, good camera options and navigation, Surprisingly good keypad for the size

Some keys could have been more easy to press, MicroSD slot requires removal of the back cover

The slim Nokia 6300 offers a surprising mix of good features, performance and style that should appeal to everybody. A sound choice.

6300 isn't the cleverest mobile on the block: there are plenty of other phones with higher specifications. But fashion and wit need not to be shouting!

Nokia 6300 is a good phone. 6300 isn't the cleverest mobile on the block: there are plenty of other phones with higher specifications. Hindi nga ito 3G, Tri-band GSM with GPRS lang, kaya anumang data ay medyo mabagal. But it is extremely well...

Nokia 6300

 

At around €250 / £160 / $300 before tax and subsidy, the Nokia 6300 looks to be a good value handset too, especially considering the quality of the screen, camera and bundled memory. Nokia say that the 6300 should be available from the first quarter of...

Nokia 6300

 

The Nokia 6300 is a mid-range model that represents an evolution of the modern monoblock design. Less than 13.1mm thin, the slim Nokia 6300 has a stainless steel frame that adds both design interest and strength.

Slim and sleek design; easy to use; great keypad

Camera and speakers could be better; paltry amount of memory

Most importantly, the 6300 gets the job done well when it comes to what matters most in a mobile phone.

Nokia 6300

 

One look at the Nokia 6300 and right away it exudes both fun and stylishness. The candy bar type 6300 comes loaded with features that most people look for in mobile phones. All that power is wrapped by a gorgeous and sophisticated stainless steel...

The greatest thing about the Nokia 6300 is that the people at Nokia designed it to be a mobile phone first and foremost, with the other functions serving as just extra. Not the other way around as is the case with most handsets these days. It is easy...
