Nokia 6103 review

 Review: June 2006  
 

Rating: 1 star

In a nutshell: The Nokia 6103 is an updated version of the Nokia 6101.



 

Review

Considering that the 6103 was released one year after the 6101, not much has changed. The 6103 adds Bluetooth connectivity but that's about it. So much for progress.

The 6103 is a clamshell phone that is attractive, compact and well designed, but too expensive for what you get. The VGA camera and low resolution screen are below average for phones in this price range. Although a video camera is included, it is primitive and there's no flash for the camera. MP3 tracks can be used as ringtones, although the quality is not that great. The memory is tiny - just 4.2 Mbytes - which isn't adequate for storing photos or ringtones. Overall quality control for the 6103 has failed miserably - read the user reviews below to find out just how many 6103's have broken and are now in the bin. On the plus side, the keypad is quite nice to use and the phone is well laid out. There is also a voice recorder, and the phone has an FM stereo radio.

I have owned a Nokia 6103 for at least 4 years. It's stylish, easy to handle and has never let me down (yet).The camera is okay but not fantastic - but I do not use this often. the screen is smallish but then everything on phones has become larger. Can't really find fault with it but then I only receive and make calls and texts, but I am happy with it.

I am absolutely delighted with my Nokia 6103, its amazing, easy to use with fully functioning controls. I have large fingers so its nice to have a clear and large keypad, its great, especially for texting! I love the flip up feature, just like Captain Kirk, "beam me up Scottie"! The quality of sound from the radio is brilliant, the pictures from the camera is good. The reason I bought it was for the bluetooth as I had a bike and wanted to use a sat nav. It proved to be ideal, its simplicity itself, ok, so it hasnt got a lot of the fancy features you find on mobs these days, but no matter. I am thinking of trading it in for a newer model, thats only because the casing is becoming loose, but thats it really. I have owned this phone since Dec 2006 Well done Nokia for producing a phone that is ideal for me. Thankyou!

I have the 6103b. It is the best phone I have ever used. I have used 7 cell phones, two have been Nokia. I have abused this phone, and I admit the camera stopped working after one or another of the asphalt-droppings in the first year. That aside, I have found the Texting very easy to use, the Alarm has never failed me, it has a Ring Tone that sounds like a phone. 3 years later I was able to pick up a new charger, the original battery continues to last 4 or 5 days at a time, and I should point out that I use an average of 1600 minutes per month. I have as much reception as everyone around me, although it drops calls for a second when moving from digital to analog (like everyone else). My plan expired 2 months ago, but I refuse to get a new phone so I remain, contract-free. Maybe I got the proverbial "one good one", but I love this unit and when I manage to completely destroy it I will be searching out another Nokia.

I must agree with R Burge, my phone does the exact same thing, the sound just decides to turn off on it's own, it will have an outdoor setting but the alarm will make no sound. Reinserting the battery will fix it for a while, But it doesn't help after the fact it failed to wake me up. The alarm also cancels itself whenever it feels like. My previous nokia phone also did the exact same thing. Not worth a rating of one.

Overall, I like my Nokia 6103 phone. The main problem is the memory so I'm upgrading to the NOkia 6263. I like the call quality and the ringtone sounds but sometimes when I click over to the other line, it freezes so I have to hang up on both parties. Any problems with missing calls would probably be due to service because I've never had any issues of that nature. It has nice features but I wish the camera was better.

I have had this phone for 18 months. I am old enough to know how to properly care for a phone. It resides in my purse or pocket. It has been dropped a very few times but because of the rubbery coating it never seemed to have damage. Well, one day I took it out to answer and a piece of plastic on the hinge pulled off. Then a bolt appeared and and now the cover is only being held on by one side. The quality of my calls is being effected. When I took it into my T-Mobile store they told me that it was a known problem, but they couldn't help me because it was no longer under warranty. So, I called T-Mobile, they told me my choice were to buy a new phone (and extend my contract) or try to find another T-Mobile phone from somebody! Actually, my options are to, charge up my old Motorola phone and in September when my T-Mobile contract is up go to AT&T and get another Motorola phone!

My Nokia 6103...is not a phone. With a real phone you get calls. It rings. A phone should ring when you get a call, reliably. My 6103 rings SOMETIMES, other times not. It's not that I'm not HEARING my phone... Sometimes it won't ring at all. Otherwise I hear a faint, one-time 'beep'...I look at my phone and see I'm getting a call on the display! Afterwards I check my settings for ring tone. It's set ok but none of the gallery ring tones work. I scroll down each one..nothing... then my Nokia 6103 has a seizure; scritches static-ly and dies in a total black out! Hopelessly depressed, I close the 6103...and it comes back on! So I check out the ring tones again; this time all are working--each playing their tune as I scroll through them. I call my number from the land line and my phone rings now! Well, that little ritual is how I have to fix my 6103 every so often...since Nokia tech support couldn't figure it out or fix it (they tried) and now they won't cuz it's out of warranty. I've had to perform this ritual every month or so for the last year --don't know when it's going to quit ringing, but it will, sooner or later. I'm missing important calls...unless I catch that elusive, imperceptible, nearly inaudible one-time 'beep' tip off. Too bad I just can't stop it from telling people I'm busy, out of service or unavailable. Once, as a test, I held my closed Nokia 6103 in one hand and called my number with a land line phone in the other hand. My Nokia 6103 said I was BUSY! Later found out my 6103 tells callers I'm out of the service area or out of service altogether...but I'm not. I'm right here with a good signal and a fully charged battery...just a pathetic Nokia 6103 cell phone. How do I know? Callers know I'm NOT out of service or out of the service area; they immediately called back and told me my phone was lying to them! Do you know what your Nokia 6103 is telling callers? Mine says, "I'm a lying, undependable,low quality, budget Nokia 6103 'sometimes' impostor cell phone hardly worth even a one star rating. Say NO to NOkia.

I really, really love this phone. Just that the memory is so small for a lot of ring tunes. But besides, I usually download short ring tunes to fit a space. I hope Nokia will improve the memory status in future.

Bought a Nokia 6103 on August 24th as a second phone. Brought it home in the box, put it on the kitchen counter and rarely even used it as it is not my primary phone. It never left home and was NEVER used outdoors. Exactly one week after purchase three horizontal white lines appeared on the LCD display. Seems Nokia quality isn't what it used to be. Although the phone has all of the features I want, having it fail after just one week of almost no usage is simply not reasonable. Shame on Nokia for making such a poor quality product. Motorola will get all of my business from now on.

I had and HAVE a lot of problems now. YES!! i'm still using it..cos icant afford a new one. :(. I'l tell u all the probelsm i have so far 1) The range on the mobile went off and refused to come back for som reason. I had to give it back and they fixed it for me. But it still happend ocassionally 2) The front cover is coming out. I havea tape stuck on the front to avoid its insides from jumping out. 3) very low memory. Cant store a lot of stuff in it. and there is no way to extend the memory as well 4) It tends to goof up and get stcuk wen u need it most 5) The earphones that came along with it are not workign properly now. i dont knwo if its the phones problem or the earphones problem. 6) Whenever i put in a lot ofsettings..it hangs and i have to bring it back to the original settings again. So i have stopped trying to custimise the phone. which is big dissapoint ment for me All this said..i still use the phone. So i better respect it eh??You might want to think again before buying this one. But it is agreat buy if ure low on budget,,,cos it has all the needed functions

LCD screen broke after 3 months of use. The key pad hits the screen and leaves a mark until it cracked it. They will not warranty the lcd screen. Do not buy this phone

Liked this phone a lot, ok, the camera was junk but I wasn't bothered. Problem: did not survive falling (very briefly) into a full sink. Completely broken, and it was only 6 months old.

This phone has brought me out of the dark ages. I had a 10 year old phone that rang and made texts...all I needed, it got a bit old and this came along on offer for less than 72!! I now have a camera, handy but not important, I AM a photographer so have a camera to do the job. It has colour screen, e mail, hands free, bluetooth..?? ( I'm sure thats important!!), voice activated....hey! I'm sorted for another 10 years!! If like me you want a cheap 21st century PHONE that doesnt make the tea, get it!!

Yeah look dont buy it. I bought it as an impulse buy and cause i liked the cover. the cover started peeling within a month and it now looks really bad 6 months later. Leaves dirty marks on the screen, i think im gonna break it every time i shut it cause of the sound it makes, it keeps telling me i have too many messages- even though i regularly empty the inbox. Likes to turn itself off occcassionally and battery goes flat quite quickly. And as of new years it has started flashing white every 3 or so seconds. new phone for me i think. not another one of these though

Worst phone that I ever bought. It had problems from get go. Cover started peeling off. Left keypad marks on the LCD screen and died within 3 months. Called T-Mobile and they told me it's because of water damage. Took it to a T-Mobile store and they told me that there is no signs of water damage but since there is a RED dot underneath the battery, it's probably caused by exposure to moisture or rain. I tried to tell the guy that if that's the case then it's a manufacturing defect but he didn't listen. Don't buy this phone.

Bought this phone for Christmas. I think it's ok however, there is not enough memory I can only have one mp3 ringtone tried deleting some of the games to increase storage, oops big mistake. This phone could have been a lot better if it had the memory of the Nokia 6230 minus the memory card. Next time Nokia decides on making a flip phone they should check out motorola

Worst phone nokia ever built. Bad sound, cosmetic failure, the rubber layer keeps coming out, even though I take care of it really well. And the latest problem, my keypad lights remain on 24/7 draining the battery twice a day. Don't buy it.

Slow response time, poor photo quality, the keypad leaves marks on the display, low memory. Apart from that, the FM radio is handy with a good sound. You do need to attach the headphones first though as they act as an antennae. Easy to use, clear menus. Looks nice! Wouldn't buy it again if I had the chance.

good gsm only if it is a gift from somebody you like it. materials are fine and no cracking body sound at all. mine gsm survived four extremly bad impact and it is still ok. fm radio works fine and stdby/talk time is sufficient (5days/5hours). keypad is pleasent to type. bt and irda are ok. on the other hand, it cost a lot of money, and it have only about 2mb of memory (somebody said 4.2mb? wow, not on mine handy. maybe my gsm provider stole it?), furthermore it has external antena and rocker switch on left side which is realy rocker (it moves in all direction and makes some rattle noises)! nice keypad, that i mentioned before, leaves some nasty marks on plastic cover of lcd. if you like to buy nokia gsm, it's good idea to take some other model.

First of all. You cannot trust the alarm. If you are planning to use your phone as an alarm clock, you cannot use this phone, as sometimes the alarm will not ring. Sometimes it will show on the display, but with no sound. If you have received a service sms message before the alarm should ring, then the alarm will not ring until you have opened the phone and read the message, and the alarm starts rinning, even though it should have been rinning hours ago.... Vibration is not very high. Backgrounds and ringtones that come with the phone are terrible, but ofcourse you can just put new ones. That is if you buy a datacable or have bluetooth. The sound when making a call is not good. It's kind of muffled, and low volume sounds tends to dissapear. Similar to the problem with the samsung phones.... The phone has 4.2 MB, BUT only about 2 of those are availabe for you to use, and most of those 2 are filled up with the sounds, pictures and programs that come with the phone, and there's only 800KB left for you. So even if you delete everything, there's only 2 megs left, wich is just not enough.

R-U-B-B-I-S-H What kind of UPDATE is this? The only thing updated is bluetooth... which should have been in the 6101 anyway considering when it got released... This phone is just a rip... Don't get it. Very slow responses... Bad camera (NOT average; BAD). Sound quality is not that great, and not enough memory

I wasn't in the market because I still had the (justly) famous 6310i but it died (from a cc or two of beer splashed on the keyboard...a note about that here: WHY CAN'T THEY MAKE WATERPROOF KEYPADS?! Mobile phones get used OUTDOORS, where it sometimes RAINS..). So I went looking for a new phone (I work for a mobile operator, btw) and got the 6230i, thinking it was a suitable replacement. It isn't, and I replaced it as quickly as I could (see my review of the 6230i at RecommendedBuys, look via this site) with the 6103, which is great. It has most of the modern features of the 6230i but with a much bigger & more tactile keypad & 4-way navigation 'joy-key'. The 6230i is also infamous for terrible batter life but the 6103 is quite ok in this regard (they're all poorer now because of color displays and more processing power): at least several days. Screen is very bright and keypad very well backlit, very easy to use at night. I don't care about megapixels and built-in MP3 players etc, but the 6103 has a serviceable camera and a pretty fine FM radio. Good enough for me. But what I really like is the nice big useable keypad and the intuitive Nokia interface (always their strength). Having long thought folding designs will win out (they allow a large display and a large keypad), I've also discovered what might be an even bigger advantage: folding protects both the display from getting scratched and the keys from being inadvertantly pushed. It's small and attractive (black exterior non-slip 'skin' very nice in the hand) but opens to a 'real phone' format (you can whisper into it and be heard, whereas with tiny phones, the microphone is up by your cheekbone, picking up background noise). Very fine phone that offers a lot but is probably getting overshadowed by the bells and whistles crowd. Well worth checking out!

I can't decide whether to give this a 4 or a 5, but I want to underscore that it is a very good phone for people like me who value 'basic' mobile capability (voice calls & SMS) but don't care about megapixels or MP3 players. As I wrote in my review of the (lousy) 6230i, when my trusty beloved 6310i died I ended up with one of them and couldn't wait to get rid of it (see that review for why). Not wanting to go away from Nokia's user interface, I decided to take a chance on the 6103, and am very pleased with it. It has more or less the same 'feel' in terms of user features and interface organisation, plus a big bright screen (screen & keyboard are very nicely backlit at night), a VERY nice keyboard with nice big, tactile (meaning they click when pushed so you get positive feedback on keystrokes) and a very nice (meaning large enough for adult fingers) 'joystick-rocker' 4-way navigation key. While not having precisely analysed why, I find the message and call handling even m ore intuitive - I'd say slick - than the 6310i (which I really liked for those reasons). In general I don't like 'cute little phones' like the 6230i; the 6103 unfolds to fit well in the hand, so that the microphone isn't up by your cheekbone picking up all manner of background noise - you can whisper into this phone and be heard! I've also been convinced for a long time that folding phones are the only way to go to obtain reasonably sized displays and keypads; the 6103 also taught me that folding protects the screen from being scratched and keys from being inadvertantly pushed. It doesn't have a 25 megapixel camera, but I use a camera for taking pictures. ;-) That said you can take pictures...the screen seems perfectly adequate for me. 4 stars for a really good design, 5 to push the rating up on a phone that deserves more notice.
