Nokia 6300i review
|Review: September 2008|
In a nutshell: The 6300i is an enhanced version of the now classic 6300 phone. This is an elegant slimline phone with excellent ease of use.
The Nokia 6300i is essentially the same as the classic 6300, except that it has WLAN connectivity and support for making VoIP calls. The 6300i also comes with a bundled 512 Mbyte microSD card, with the Nokia Maps application pre-loaded. The Opera Mini web browser is also installed on the phone.

I find one annoying feture with this phone The lighting to the keys goes out after about 3 seconds of unuse....most annoying if using in poor light. If texting, it is then easy to hit the wrong key and lose a part printed text. After many hours trying to have this sorted, was told it cannot be alterred. If someone knows a solution please share it with Nokia and Orange who both failed.
Good battery life though and most other features very good.

Not a bad phone really, i"ve had it two years now and had no problems at all.The battery does need very regular charging now, though it is still the original battery.

I have purchased this phone last year and I think it was abig mistake of chosing this phone. Battery back was the problem right from the first day. I got it serviced from Nokia authorized centre within the waranty period but after working for hardly one month it is not getting charged and when contacted Nokia centre still within waranty period they say they is aproblem and they may be charging Rs 2000-2500 and still no guarantee whether it would work fine after that or not. I AM FACING THE PROBLEM SO i WOULD SUGGEST THAT NOBODY SHOULD BUY THIS PHONE ON ITS DECEPTIVE LOOKS.ITS BATTERY BACKUP IS TOTALLY NIL AND ITS BATTERY GETS HOT ON CHARGING

While not packed feature wise, the 6300i is a phone that will certainly satisfy its owner. Battery life is mediocre, WiFi connectivity is excellent and apart from VoIP calls it can also be used with Opera Mini, which comes pre-installed for some basic web surfing. The 6300i also comes with a version of Nokia Maps installed on the memory card. Nothing fancy there. Just basic nav functions as the phone has no GPS module installed (it can however connect to one via Bluetooth). The build quality is also excellent (no apparent gaps or creaks). I've had the phone for about a month now and I am really satisfied. Its only drawback is its SAR value (0,97 W/kg) hence the 4 stars I am rating it.
