Nokia 6303i Classic Review
|| Review: May 2010
Last updated Sep 2012.
In a nutshell: The 6303i Classic
is an easy-to-use budget handset with an attractive stainless
steel finish and average features - a 3.2 megapixel camera with
autofocus and flash, MP3 player, FM radio, 3.5mm audio jack,
Nokia Maps, Bluetooth, 2GB memory card and good battery life.
Available in Silver.
Best buy: On Pay as you Go for £104.68 from PrePayMania
It's hard to spot the difference between the 6303i Classic and the
older Nokia 6300 Classic. The only real changes are a slightly enhanced
battery life and more support for social networking. It's not much,
but it's better than a slap in the face with a smoked haddock. Read

a fair mobile not top of range, but does the job.if you want a normal
mobile its worth a look.

It is a piece of excrement.
It has deleted all contacts not saved on sim by itself.
Poor incoming call quality.
Low quality speaker sound.
Clock does not always display when on standby.
It has a 3.2 MP camera, yet manages to produce very coarse
pictues. Plus the flash is only a GIMMICK - you could use a lighter
for more light.
But it does have a partial steel cover - wow

This is indeed an excellent phone with great ergonomics, features and
build quality which they should continue to make forever. If you have
one, look after it well.
The only rather major niggle are the changes they have made in the user
interface/software from the previous, slightly slower and lower-memory
model 6303. The home screen and menus don't look as nice, you don't
see the clock in as many screens as previously, the home screen is not
as well laid out to fit in lots of useful stuff, there is an annoying
'Your message:' legend at the top of the SMS editor screen (why??),
and worst of all, you can no longer mark and delete or move SMS messages,
giving much less flexibility in managing your messages. The only improvement
in the user interface is the new image viewer which can show more images
simultaneously and orders them by data not name, making it A LOT easier
to quickly find recently taken pictures. Four rather than five stars
only because the completely unnecessary software issues!

This is the best mobile I have ever owned! Love the excellent camera/mapping/sat
nav/calendar etc etc. Have had it through 3 upgrades now but refuse
to give it up for a newer/different model. However, I am unable to get
new mobile of this same model through my current Vodafone contract although
I'm due another upgrade. I cannot find another mobile that will improve
on this model as I'm NOT interested in touch screen mobiles or networking
on my mobile. I recommended this mobile to three members of my family
who now all own this model and are in the same situation as I am regarding
upgrades. Why oh why has Vodafone written off such an excellent mobile

Bought mine about a month ago as a backup handset as I was getting fed
up either having to recharge the stupid smartphone or resolve various
bugs which meant problems introduced into something that must be at
least 99% reliable. The Nokia 6303i has excellent battery life and the
call quality appears to be good. Enough extra features included on the
phone to make it a useful device. A well-made, no-nonsense phone that
should last well.

I went to buy this phone as soon as I saw it. The design, island keys,
its overall shape caught my eye immediately. I would have loved to have
the green one but was lucky to get the last phone in the store which
was a silver and black one. It is a classic Nokia phone-I like that
it has similarities to old Nokia classics in the past. I like how it
is made and it works quite well indeed. I bought it from a Nokia representative
store in the UAE. It was the actual overall design and colour options
that made me get this phone. I am just fortunate it had everything I
wanted on it.

Just had my 6303c replaced with a 6303i without choice via warranty
replacement. I've always loved the 6303 and its predecessor phones,
but I'm quite disappointed with a few featues: 1) much fewer text options
- can't set up own folders in the 'saved' folder 2) when composing a
new text, you don't get the band of options at the bottom, eg 'insert
object', etc - does anyone know if I can I turn this function on? 3)you
can't preview your text msg before sending it - quite frustrating if
you've written a long one 4)you can't seem to mark individual messages,
or block delete a selection of messages in any of the inbox/sent/draft
folders - highly annoying! I'm gutted - didn't get a choice in getting
this, and i'd love my 6303c back :-(( If anyone has any suggestions
to help me find the love for my new phone, I'd be very grateful!! Thanks

Charlotte, I bought this phone for battery life but was not expecting
two steps backwards in the text messaging.. on my previous ancient brick,
a 6310i, I could insert the name or number or detail from any contact
direct into a message.. this is essential if u want to give someone
limited info about a contact. The 6303i allows business card only to
be sent. Why remove a function when the programming has been paid for!!
No wonder Nokia is not keeping up with the competition.. You keep customers
loyal by adding or maintaining standards... not by removing them.. the
customer feels cheated. I now want to buy a 6303 if the battery life
is as good and you can insert contact details into a message. I use
it for talking and texting only.

A handsome looking phone with a much-improved display compared to the
model I had before (Nokia 6070). I have taken little interest in the
many features it has to offer as I only want a mobile for texting, or
for making the occasional call, and nothing else. Texting from the 6303i
Classic is simplicity itself and I found no difficulty in adapting to
the smaller keypad compared to the 6070. But my one real annoyance with
the phone is that after only 3 months, the 'Recently Used' feature no
longer works. You compose your text, you press 'Send to' and up comes
a list of sending options for you to choose from: Contacts, ,
Recently Used, Contact Groups, Number or e-mail etc. When it works,
the 'Recently Used' feature lists, in chronological order, those you've
sent texts to before, with the most recent at the top of the list. I
found it a very useful feature. Unfortunately, mine no longer records
who I've texted, so is useless ! The friendly sounding lady on the Nokia
helpline took me through how to restore the factory settings, but that
failed to resolve it. I've heard that I'm not the only one with this
same problem. But apart from that irritating glitch, I'm happy with

I spend over 2000 minutes per month on the mobile and if you need a
small,reliable phone with good reception and battery life that works
well with voice dialing and bluetooth headset connectivity then its
hard to beat. As a back up I have two as they are cheap £40-£50 new
off Ebay and two spare batteries with me (not normaly needed as lasts
me 2-3 days of heavy use). I also have Galaxy S which I use for Skype
calls when abroad or conference calls but it wouldn't last me a day
of normal use without a recharge. If you priority is to have a phone
that you can talk to someone then its hard to beat at this price.

Bought the phone about 9 months ago + liked it a lot (keypad a little
miniscule for my aging eyes, but apart from that). 2 months ago, it
got lost + stayed lost until 3 weeks ago when it was returned to me.
Since then, the battery has gone crazy: runs out after full charge within
48 hours, on light or moderate use. I don't know if something happened
while it was out of my possession - but that's my experience.

I have this mobile for last two weeks, and I would like to comment on
the things, which i could not find in the reviews before purchasing
this one: -> Battery timings: Its giving me 3 days on average with modest
use. Talking of 5 to 7 days, is not true. -> Display: The display is
very superior. I liked this the most in this phone. Very good even in
the sunlight -> Keypad: Keypad is not the strongest point of this phone,
unlike someone mentioned this in the review. Its very difficult to use
the keypad with one hand, due to the position of the keypad too low
in the phone. Especially the bottom 3 keys are problematic. The upper
3 keys (1,2,3) are also not well placed for typing, because they are
on the slope. Anyway i can tolerate this, due to the beautiful shape
of the phone. -> LoudSpeaker: The loud speaker is not at all loud, and
i always miss few calls daily, despite using the highest volume settings.
And waking up with the alarm on this phone, is possible only if u had
enough sleep already... :)

Wanted a mobile 'phone to use as a 'phone and a diary/calendar. The
Nokia 6303i was suggested to me, so I bought it. It is brilliant. It
does exactly what I wanted without me having to pay a lot for all the
bells and whistles that I do not want and would not use. Reading some
of the critical reviews, I wonder what some users are looking for in
a 'phone that costs relatively so little. For example, I do not know
much about the quality of this 'phone's camera or video performance,
but I did not buy it for this sort of purpose (in fact, both functions
worked well when I tried them). To get a decent camera or video camera
I know I would need to spend a good deal more! I did not buy this 'phone
to use as a radio, for example, but I tried this function out when I
discovered it and was amazed it the quality and clarity. I am delighted
with the 6303i, its 'phone, messaging, voice mail and diary functions.
Plus a lot of other clever facilities. And I am amazed that it offers
so much at the price. If this is regarded as a basic 'phone, I wonder
if the word "basic" has lost its meaning. I totally agree with all the
reviewers who have given it 5 statrs.

used to display the name of whoever texted you when you received a text
message but the new one doesn't. The video recorder now only records
at 8 frames a second as opposed to 15 like before and the camera doesn't
seem to focus anymore when taking pictures, it just snaps straight away
without focusing, with no options to change this. Finally the software

Excellent basic phone that has a decent camera plus flash and the ability

facebook, but wanted a good quality phone. For the same price the LG
viewty snap and sony erricson elm have better capabilities, however
the 6303i is smaller sleeker and of an excellent build quality - big
deciding factor in my case. The keypad also has seperate buttons for
each number - again a major plus for those with big thumbs. read a few
complaints reference quite ring tones - you need to open a tune with
the media player, turn the volume right up then set it as a ring tone.
When looking at build quality,capability and size for under £100 this
definitely deserves five stars.

the Nokia N95 8GB, as its slightly cheaper but has all the features
I need. The camera is not as good as that on the N95, and the lack of
the customisable desktop background with shortcuts to applications is
also a drawback. Otherwise, this phone does what a phone should: make

Brilliant phone compared to the 2 very unreliable (for Nokia) more upmarket
6700s I just tried (which kept freezing up and had to be returned to
the shop) but WHY have they taken the 'mark' feature out of messaging,
so you can't mark lots of messages and then delete them all in one go??
And why no drafts or saved messages folders in messaging ?? That's really
irritating, but I still love the phone for its simple, no nonsense,
reliable working and excellent battery.

The phone seems cute but the problem am having is that the 2Gb memory
cards is not often read by the phone but if you try this card in another
device it seems ok. There is also concern about the screen saver thing,
it doesnt really work. The phone is not also auto focus, they lied about

Got this a week ago, battery life is superb, 6 days went by before I
had to plug it in. I can even use my own headphones to listen to music
and radio, compared to the rubbish ones that Nokia give you. Earpiece
sound is a little stratchy, instead I use a headset to make my calls
and it's much better. Cant't get 3g in my area so not worried about
it. well recommended, worth considering

I got a new Nokia 6303i at the weekend. I like it so far the only problem
is none of the installed screensavers seem to work. I have tried all
of them including the digital/analogue clock ones and none of them work.
Have tried changing the power saving and sleep options to see if this
affects the screensaver but no luck. All that happens when i leave my
phone alone is that after 20 seconds or so the screen dims, then after
another 20 seconds it dims some more and thats it. The backlight is
off and you can still faintly see the phones wallpaper but no screensaver
ever comes on. Anyone else had this problem or got their screensavers

This phone would have got 5 stars, but the camera does not have auto-focus
despite them saying it does (I have fully tested it). This is not a
problem to me, but lying about it is. Other than that, brilliant in
every way. You should know it is not a smart phone, so no multi-tasking
before buying it. Look at the operating system on the nokia website
first. It has a very nice screen, identical to the much more expensive
Nokia 6700 Classic - unlike some mid-priced phones such as: Nokia 5130
XpressMusic, Nokia X3 and the Nokia 2730 Classic. Unlike the Nokia 6700
Classic however, this phone is extremely reliable! :) Oh and the sound
quality is good and very loud.
