Nokia 6103 Review
Review: June 2006.
The Nokia 6103 is an updated version of the Nokia 6101. 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
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
Features of the Nokia 6103 include:
- VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels)
- Video camera & voice recorder
- Internal display: 65,536 colours, 128 x 160 pixels
- External display: 4096 colours, 96 x 65 pixels
- FM stereo radio

- Integrated handsfree speaker
- Caller ID
- Java games
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, E-mail client (IMAP4,
POP3, SMTP), Instant Messaging, Nokia Xpress audio messaging
- XHTML web browser
- WAP, GPRS Class 10, HSCSD,
- Connectivity: Bluetooth, Infrared, USB
- Memory: 4.2 Mbytes
- Vibration alert
- Size: 85 x 45 x 24 mm
- Weight: 97g
- Talktime: 2 - 4 hours
- Battery standby: 150 - 350 hours

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.

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.

I love this phone! It's simple yet effective. Attractive casing, a compact
feel along with easy, well laid out menu's make this phone very practical

technology then maybe this phone isn't for you.

browser to your phone when the handful of pictures you have need to

it was a free promo and came with soo many features (for a free-be).

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 mean its got all the stuff u need in one phone!!. cool eh? HOWEVER,
things started to take a twist for the worse. 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

the pixels will shatter randomly (I can't recall ever dropping it).

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.

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.

this phone looks quite hot and performs well. however, the biggest down
fall is like totally the memmory. it doesnt have a megpixel cam and
can hold like 1 mp3, lol! and its worth like $299 outright in Austrlia.
such a rip. anywayz if u dont care bout memory and like a avergaeish
flip fone then u can get this.

Nice looking phone with FM radio. Slow response time and poor photo
quality. Bluetooth a plus, but would not recommend it particularly.

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 really like the look of the phone altough i have to admit some of
the features are a bit out of date if ya know what i mean. one problem
im having with the phone is finding the mp3 on it. there is no USB included
or any other wires..... can anyone else help me? email@example.com
overall, i would say, if you wanna nice phone with a gud camera and
other jazzy features, dont go for this one as it is a basic fone but
also an easy-to-manage one.

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!

NO THANK YOU I bought the phone seriously thinking i was getting a good
deal i got ripped. Bad screen resolution, slow menu responses, no extendable
memory, very poor camera with no zoom or flash, no room 4 music (4mb
total memory) and still the sound quality was poor. Average batterty
life. Good connectivity tho with infared, bluetooth and USB (u have
to pay $80aus extra to have it tho). It comes with a bluetooth headset
which is very uncomfortable and clumsy. When i first got it the bluetooth
didnt work i had to go get it replaced that was very annoying. All up
good phone for someone who was in a very boring buisness lyk accountants
because this phone has nothing interesting for a lot of money. NOT WORTH

I just got this phone a day ago and there are only a few things I don't
like about it. I displike the noise the shutter makes when you snap
a picture, there's no zoom on the camera and you can't multi-task (ex:
play a game, pause it, then check your AIM). If anyone can help me with
any of this, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org , thanks

Its a good phone for the price, escpecially the fact it has video and
bluetooth, and it looks snazzy in my opinion aswell, but the features
are out of date - it would be better if it included a 1.3 megapixel
camera, then it would be worth buying, but apart from the poor camera
its not a half bad phone
