Nokia 6300 review

 Review: March 2007  

Last updated June 2009

Rating: 4 stars

In a nutshell: Our favourite Nokia for years: a classically designed phone with a beautiful stainless steel finish, good multimedia capabilities and really easy to use.

Today's best buy: Nokia 6300 Sim Free Mobile P ... from Amazon (£0)



Nokia's slogan for the 6300 is "Simply beautiful - beautifully simple." The beauty comes from the sleek, classic design with stainless-steel surfaces, and the simplicity reflects the fact that this is an all-round kind of phone: not a smartphone, not 3G, but including all of the functionality that most people want. Sounds like a winner! Could Nokia finally be getting back to what it used to do best - a phone that does just what you want and does it well?

Certainly the phone looks good when you pick it up. It's like the early 6-series Nokia's: exclusive- and expensive-looking, practically designed with a good sized screen and functional keypad, yet updated for 2007 with a 5-way navigation button and high quality colour display. The size is perfect: it's very slim (just 11.7mm) and not too wide, and the weight is enough to make it feel solid and substantial, but not so much that it feels heavy. The keypad is a decent size and is easy to use. The display is exceptional: a high resolution 240 x 320 pixel display with an amazing 16 million colours. On the outside the 6300 ticks all the right boxes.

On the inside, the phone is equipped with all the features that a typical user would expect. The camera is 2 megapixels with an 8x digital zoom and with a video recording function. Enough for casual photography, but not brilliant. There's a music player and an FM radio. A standard Nokia headset is included in the sales package and support for a Bluetooth stereo headset is included. Memory for storing music is limited, with just 7.8 Mbytes of user memory, however you can expand the memory to a maximum of 2 Gbytes by buying a microSD card, which will give you as much memory as an iPod Nano. Both Bluetooth and USB connectivity are supported, and the phone has GPRS and EDGE for fast data downloads. Battery life is below average, which is often the case with superslim phones. The user interface is a standard Series 40 interface, that Nokia users will be used to, but with the latest enhancements. It's basically a very easy phone to use, with everything well thought out and some real attention to detail.

This is our favourite Nokia phone for a long time. It really is beautiful - quality just oozes out of the phone when you pick it up. The metallic finish completes the look, although this may show scratches if not treated carefully. Ergonomics and user-friendliness are good. The strange thing is that Nokia built their reputation with phones like this, but what have they been doing these past few years with their funky but unusable fashion-phones and their buggy brick-like smartphones? Welcome back Nokia! It was worth the wait!

The new Nokia 6303 Classic updates this phone with new features including more memory and improves the battery life too.

Nokia 6300 camera use - how do you display on screen the image you wish to take?

Asked by Richard H from UK on 26th Jul 2016
To most it may appear a stupid question but are you not able to view the item you want to photograph before you take the image - like any conventional or Digital Camera??

I install fb version 3.4.1 in my nokia 6300. Why can't i change my profile name?

Asked by Joan milby from Philippines on 27th Mar 2016
There's no change profile name in my setting.. I can't open my fb account in other mobile that's why i want to change my profile name.

I have had my 6300 for about 5 years and have never had a problem. I have stored 40 cd's on the 2GB menu....(is that a record?)and use it as a music player cum radio. Obviously I have upgraded so now use the Nokia as a spare phone. It has NEVER let me down. Originally all all black handset, I have recently bought a brand new stainless stel case which was £15 with free fitting and have transformed the phone making it look very slick. Whilst my Sony touch screen has faltered after 3 months I have relied on the 6300 to deliver essentially what I have always wanted....reliability and basic features. A kid at the school I teach in said to me today...."Wow....cool retro phone"......says it all really.

First and foremost this phone is just the biz, super smart, easy to use, looks sheek to. I have had smart phones in the past but decided to resort back to a nokia 6300, why you may ask, well you dont have to worry about apps crashing thats one thing and second of all you get plenty of characters in the sms text messaging (1000 to be exact) with a smart phone you only get (160) thats rubbish, especially if like me, you have friends that txt you alot, so well done to nokia, just wish smartphone makers would sort this problem out with their phones, take note all phones makers, do something about this quick.

Having gone around the houses with various mobiles i have come back to this little gem of a phone. There is just something about it. I have it in white its really ivory in colour its stunning to be honest with a gel clear case which makes it easier to hold and text with. The blue reminder lights are the biz as they dont stop until you have cleared a message. Unlike the 6303 that do after ten minutes, how silly is that. You can of course turn them off completely if they annoy you in profiles setting. Downside is the small screen but hey you cant have everything. You can still get them easily enough but the white one is superb especially if you are a lass! You can then put a ping clear gell case on it and it looks stunning. Battery life is rubbish but you live with that. Carry a spare in your purse or whatever. Cant beat it why did they ever stop making it?

love it! its very nice to use, the standard blue theme and the blue side lights for new messages really give this phone a very happy and generally nice interface, the phone is very solid, and will withstand most drops & smashes, the battery life isn't very fantastic, but it'll last a good day or two between charges. The keypad & volume rocker are very easy to use, they are soft but not too soft, the keypad is very easy to use, for the standard nokia user, texting can be very very quick, and signal isn't really a problem as i always have above 2 bars. The internet browser, is very good, it completes all simple tasks, eg checking your social networking site or simply looking something up on wikipedia. But yes, this phone is a very attractive phone to use & i am very happy using it, i may feel a bit down with all of the other people with iphones, and massive sony ericssons, but to be honest, i am very happy with my strong old nokia 6300.

Other than the above draw backs the phone looks smart.if you are going to buy a 6300 then try to get the red metallic phone,because it looks smarter than the black one

Nice Pretty Slim phone with a good screen that can be viewed in direct sunlight. Bad Point - Very Poor Battery Life you would be lucky to get 3 days Max in standby mode (Without using it). Nokia Claim 14.5 day which is non-sense. I did complain to Nokia when I first got it but they said that was normal - Not happy. The second most important thing on a phone should be battery life. when you pull it out of packet you want it to work and not to keep having to charge it constantly. Also other bad point is that you can not even charge from USB port, so you have to buy another charger. My Last phone was a Sony K300 which had approx 2 weeks standby time and cost a lot less to buy. Probably would not buy another nokia unless it had a good battery life.

I have 6300 2 and half of year. This is the best phone which I have ever used. It is easy to use, very strong. I have dropped it too many times. Even from 2 meters of height. It didn't make me sad even then. But one day after I have used it in -5 celsius it lost its front nikkel pannel. I have looked for new nokia phone. But there is no other model which I can choose. I do not need more functionality. And also SAR value is very nessesary for me(6300 SAR=0.6, you can use 2 6300 together but not apple's iToys(SAR=0.8~1.4)). Even it has lost its front panel I can not decide what new phone to buy. Another 6300 ?. I do not know. I use it without front nikkel panel :).

well, had this 6300 phone for 3 yrs and very good indeed it is too! no complaints apart from would be better if battery last longer, which is why im finally thinking of upgrading, but to a similar model. this, hwever is good quality no nonsense phone, primarily for purpose of phoning people, being reliable and looking reasonably nice! it does these things very well! I think you should review what you said about the 6700 being great and reliable at the end of the 6300 review, in view of the huge numbers of customer complaints about its reliability!

The phone was fantastic until i got over 1,000 msgs (inbox and sent items combined) the phone then proceeded to freeze every 2mins, it seems it cannot handle that many msgs and will never load them so i can delete them. nokia care centre very helpfully flashed the phone, conveniently losing all my contacts and msgs. 3 months later, it does it again! my old ericson had over 3,000 msgs in the inbox and never skipped a beat.

Excellent phone. Its exquisite finish, durability, functions, and ease-of-use make it very very good. However the underside of the screen has the tendency to accumulate a lot of dust and dirt; I've not been able to clean it.

Hi Iam using Nokia 6300 Everything is good with this mobile other than video player... It is not able to play mp4 video files with good resolution... If Nokia Can fix this problem then 6300 will be their one of top mobiles..
