Nokia 9300 review

 Review: October 2005  
 

Last updated October 2006

Rating: 2 stars

In a nutshell: Symbian smartphone with full QWERTY keyboard.

Best buy: Nokia 9300 Communicator - Si ... from Amazon (£0)



 

Review

The Nokia 9300 smartphone is like a little brother of the Nokia 9500 Communicator. It shares many of the features of the 9500, but misses out on others.

Physically, the two devices are similar, with both having the benefit of a full QWERTY keyboard and a very large internal display (640 x 200 pixels, 65,000 colours). The 9300 is considerably smaller and lighter, but still a bit of a brick when compared to normal phones.

The 9300 shares the Symbian 7 operating system of the 9500, making it a powerful smartphone. Messaging is a strong point, with SMS, MMS and full email support for a wide range of protocols. There is built-in software to allow email attachments to be viewed and edited - support is provided for documents, spreadsheets and presentations, and the software is MS Office compatible. There's a file manager, and a web browser that supports HTML and XHTML.

The 9300 also has a range of advanced voice features, such as an integrated handsfree speakerphone, conference calling and a voice recorder. It's a triband phone that will work in the USA.

Connectivity is excellent, with Bluetooth and Infrared available for wireless connectivity, and USB 2.0 also available. A fax port is included, and high speed data transfer over EDGE enables data to be downloaded at speeds of up to 236.8 kbit/s. The 9300 comes with 80 Mbytes of internal memory, plus an expandable MMC memory card. Battery life is acceptable.

The features missing from the 9300 that are included in the 9500 are: Wi-Fi support, an integrated camera & video recorder and some of the advanced contact management features. If you won't miss these features, then the 9300 could be your phone: it's smaller, lighter and cheaper and you get a lot for your money! Realiability seems to be pretty good, despite a slightly temperamental Bluetooth connection. Just bear in mind that it's not a PDA, so don't expect it to be everything that a PDA is. Oh, and there's no vibration alert - beware of this if it's a feature that you need to have.

I think this is one of the three best phones Nokia has made, the others being the old 6150 and the 6310i. I only do two things with a phone: Make phone calls and send text messages. The 9300 has good RF and good voice quality, which are the two most important qualities in a cell phone for me, and a low SAR rating, which I also consider to be important. I put in a non-OEM high capacity battery, and have no talk time issues. The 9300 does NOT include a camera, which is a big plus for me. On the down side, it is tri-band rather than quad-band (not a problem if you don't travel, but an incredibly stupid choice on Nokia's part), does not use predictive text in closed-phone mode (not a problem if you use the keyboard, which I do), and does not vibrate (about which I don't care a lot). Since the only application I run is the software that allows me to connect the 9300 to my PC to use Oxygen Phone Manager II (which is MUCH better than PC Suite!), it is unlikely that I will ever experience the functional problems that others seem to have encountered.

I however have problem with sound (ringing tone, voice recording, media playing) which is likely due to a virus from software installation. In all, I give it 98%!

Having been a longtime user of the 9110 and 9210 "techbrick", I strayed and went to play with a Motorola V5 for a while. As with most Nokia communicator users who become accustomed to QWERTY keyboards, I soon returned to the fold with the 9300 "tech half-brick" which I dropped and unfortunately killed. Luckily, the same week, a fellow communicator fan upgraded to an E90 so I inherited his 9300 which is serving me very well indeed. Although it lacks a camera (so what?) and vibrating ring (would be handy, it still raises eyebrows from people when I pull out what looks like a frumpy candybar and open it up. My wife was grumbling about the QWERTY being hard to use so I had a race with her. Me on the 9300, her on the 6300. A to Z in the fastest time. She received my text as she reached J. Not perfect but less fiddly than a Blackberry, less bulky than the full brick and just a damn good capable all rounder

I have been using this 9300 phone for the past 4 years,the only problem I've had is with the speaker, which means it does not playing music..however it is understandable considering the life span of 4 years...

The phone was basically not designed for multimedia entertainment fanatics. The goal and very reason for this phone is to equip the business type person who is always on the go. I find the phone very good when it sets its standard to those who likes saving a lot of important files into it. My Nokia 9300 stopped slowing down when I upgraded the extended memory to 2 gigabytes and stopped storing files and programs in the phone's built-in memory. At times, it does slow down but that is understandable for a phone with file storing features with a processor not that high. I was able to add several important software as well, but like any other mobile phones, it does have its own limitations. If you want a practical handphone that can store some of your important documents, I can recommend it. But if you are for other features aside from that, better look for other phones.

Rubbish battery and occasionally stops working but the battery in and out cures it (so far). I'd have another one any day.

I enjoyed this phone a lot when I received. However after about six to eight months, the screen started to freeze. I called my service provider. They told me it is common with Nokia 9300. However, a year later bothe screens just went blank (white screen). I was told that I need to pay for the repair. I only dial numbers without seeing them on the screen. Despite the great software and phone, I will not recommend it to any person, reliability is 100% dreadful. What can I do? My Nokia 6110 never gave me trouble in seven years.

A decent business phone: crisp & bright landscape screen is ideal for spreadsheets. Keyboard better than messing about with smeary touchscreen/ fiddly stylus/ writing recognition. Ever tried looking at a screen in sunlight after you've touched it or using touchscreens in a jiggling urban vehicle? QWERTY also faster than other means of texting (tho ergonomics not quite as rapid as old batwing 6820 which was incredibly fast). Easy to take notes from someone while using earpiece. Two crashes, fully recovered straight away, run it a year so far, trouble free otherwise. Runs 2-3 days mild use/ standby but as back-up I take carcharger if making quite a few calls in a day. Very crisp speakerphone mode allows several of you to discuss/ absorb what the caller is on about. I never wanted vibrate alert: if in an uninterruptible meeting, I just switch phone section off entirely, else leave it on. I have a proper digital camera, and have no use for a reduced function camera in a phone: whoever I'm with can always take a basic instant shot on their phone and bluetooth it to me. Lack of backlight? fold screen forward more to about 100 degree angle and plenty light washes over keys. Running several of the adequately featured applications at once does not phase the phone - you can check calendar during a call without closing spreadsheet, say. And 're-maximise' anything else still open via [Menu] key. If I wanted the functionality of higher end wi-fi or blackberry models, the extra total cost of ownership would provide a business case for buying and running a laptop. So for simple business planning, record-keeping, and keeping in touch on the move, the phone has performed ideally. Finally, easy music load via PC, plus fine sound via Nokia stereo headphones is good on holiday or to de-stress longer work trips if sharing the driving.

I think this is a promising smartphone - let's be clear on this, hopefully this is ONLY the beginning of a better series! And hopefully TECHNOLOGY in GENERAL will improve too, making the series better too. lol =D Anyway, I had my phone passed down from my dad who used it in university to take notes, for one year. I am currently in college and use this phone to my advantage: ebooks, notes, word-processing, calculating, dictionary, etc. I have a few games, but this is not really what this phone is about. I have a bowling game, chess, puzzle games, a racing game, golf, and a few tycoon and monopoly games. As far as I know, this isn't very good for music, although it's alright - you might consider another phone IF you want ENTERTAINMENT. But it's a good smartphone for business/education...many have asked me if that's my laptop! What don't I like? The speed of Bluetooth (which is NOT Nokia's fault!) and the data-transfer - this is due to the tiny processor which makes the phone SMALL. But otherwise it is alright, and quite good. It serves all purposes and needs really. Some people want a camera in the phone...why? It does seem "trendy", but who cares when you have a tiny laptop in your hands? huh? It's good as it is, though in some TINY ways it could be better, end of story. It is probably the best Nokia could do right there and then.....and hopefully they WILL improve. Don't knock it, support it!

Well what can i say, read most reviews and a few thngs stand out about this phone. The screen is very good, and the full sized qwerty keyboard is very practical and user friendly. I could never go back to predictive texting or the multiple key strokes require don other phones. It isn't a blackberry, but then i prefer web based email that settign up my corperate account to my phone, but then it doesn't look like a blackberry (with a very difficult keyboard to use) and still has the functionality and ease of use of a typical phone. The hot keys inside are great and the decent screen compliments web browsing well. I do love the functionality and the user friendliness once it is set up and the nokia software for transfering sycronising and generally backing up the phone. However this last function has seen too much use in the last 6 months and i am currently on my 4th phone (I'm on Vodaphone). Each has displyed the same problems, the phone freezing or a white death screen, dropped calls, hanging text messages, and random rebooting. I have checked and seem to have the lastest software on the phone, but have been told that it would take 5 working days to have phones sent away to have software or firm ware upgraded, with no gareentees this would fix the problem. Overall when it works it is a great phone, and i couldn't fault it, however 4 phones in 6 months and still the same problems persit, i shall be lookign for somethign much more reliable, as this is phone is clearly not!

While this phone has great features, and I really like it, unfortunately, it doesn't work. I am now on my fourth phone, with Cingular replacing my phone three times, due to a software conflict with the Blackberry software. The Cingular technicians don't really know anything about this phone, so they have been no help. Given that I have had three phones with the identical problem, I have to conclude that the software engineering on the phone is faulty. My fourth phone will be my last Nokia 9300; if this one doesn't work, I'm moving on to a new phone.

When batterypack has been new instalated the phone has to recover, this can take quite a while. Really good is the possibility to add your appointments and synchronize it with outlook. Sometimes it is not possible to give in the PIN code requested on startup, (and you need to when the battery was empty!)have to reset the phone, but that is not a serious problem, you wil not lose any data.

The most shocking phone I have ever used, it's so backward in doing the simple job of making or receiving calls that I'd go so far as to say it's worse than the first ever phone I owned 9 years ago. Due to severe software failings in joining the 2 interfaces, it becomes confused. At least 5 times a day it won't allow me to answer calls, a lot of the time it simply jams. There's no predictive text, the cost of my bill have doubled due to the connection issues and it weighs as much as Ireland! This useless bit of kit looks dreadful and due to it's size and weight doesn't even fit comfortably into the suit pocket of the poor, unsuspecting businessman that Nokia have tried to appeal to. This means you look even more of a nob either carrying it everywhere or heaven-forbid, you're forced to carry a bag/briefcase permanently. Dissapointingly it's a company phone so I need to keep it as it connects to the cradle in my company car (also ridiculously inconspicuous), but were it not for that I'd take great pleasure in the sacrificial ceremony and transition to a new model. I've always only ever own Nokia, rest-assured this will be the last I plan to own for a while, well done Nokia, you shot yourselves in the foot on this one, or did you just drop the 'brick' on it. p.s The guys who praised this phone in other reviews are either Nokia employees or clinically insane!

Bizarre that people would rate this as junk without clarifying the reason. Good points: Size - for the features, it is not a clunky phone; a little larger than a 6210 of 5 years ago Screen - awesome - I have never come across a screen that is so clear in the daylight - all portable devices should have screens like this! Browser - for a small device, the browser is easy to use, reasonably fast to load, and supports sites like gmail and yahoo mail very well. Just make sure you are set up to view them on a PC, not a PDA, otherwise, you will receive webclips, not full websites Office Apps interface - although they are really better for viewing than creating complex docs, the word/xl readers are really useful No camera. Personally, the camera in the phone concept will remain flawed until you get cameras that have a decent resolution (say 3 megapix), a flash and some picture control functions - in other words, until they are real cameras. Try getting that into a phone, and you will have a unit the size of a loaf of bread.I don't miss a camera in a business phone Large memory - with 80 MB on tap, and up to 2GB in an SD card, you can get most of what you need. Great keyboard (internal and external) while you can't touch type inside, because the keys are simply too small, you can, nonetheless, type pretty fast with either two thumbs, or, if you are feeling very enthusiastic, with 2-3 fingers if you put the phone down on the desk (though you look like Gulliver would have loked if the Lilliputians had had computers!) Design - a combination of the appearance, which is simple, traditional and discreet, along with the cross-functionality of it which, once you have struggled with the manual (goodness knows who writes Nokia manuals, but they are in the wrong job), leads to a piece of kit that, every time I look at it, I think "I like this phone" Bad points: No T9 on the outer phone - texting really has to be done on the inner keyboard; still, at least that removes the temptation to text while in the car! No vibration. I'm sure there's a good reason for this, but it is a nuisance. Browser on GPRS sometimes doesn't connect - but I suspect the service provider may have a hand in this. Battery life - I suspect my battery may be somewhat to blame, and have just bought a new one, but I only seem to get about a day out of it; and if I am using the PDA functions a lot, then even less. The worst I have had is 11 hours charge to discharge - that can't be right! No touchscreen - I used to have a Palm, and was a big fan of text recognition, even though half the letters I wrote were always misinterpreted (!) Honestly now, although I would like it for navigating around the screen instead of the (overly sensitive) mouse, I would not trade in that lovely keyboard for anything. I have been looking at these for a long time; I used to have a 6820, which I loved for the ease of messaging, but it had few other features, and was 'just' a phone. I wanted to be able to replace my old Palm Zire and my phone at the same time, and this has really done the trick. In an ideal world, I would have a little something for the weekend - a tiny phone which would slip into a pocket, because there are few things dorkier than jeans and a belt holster for your Communicator, but it is a relatively small price to pay for the ability to have a unit that covers so many of the bases so well. If you want a phone that is cool and everyone will think is really sexy, this is probably not it. If you want a phone for having fun with ... nope, this is probably still not the phone for you. If you are a committed stylus and touchscreen user, the absence of a touchscreen will probably put you off. But if you want a phone that works as an addition to your mobile office, then you should certainly look at this phone. I did, and I am really happy that I did so.

Initially I was a little disappointed with this phone. But once you get used it and put a push email solution it is really an excellent business phone. Two things get the latest firmware and re-load a partial backup (otherwise you do not get the new features). Also when writing a text simply type in a few letters of the name like 'luke', write your text, press send and it will find the name very quickly even with hundreds of contacts.

I have had my Nokia 9300 for about six months. Initially no problem (for the limited use which I make of its various capabilities). But its going to have to go! Reason: data entered into Contacts starts disappearing. In the case of some entries, the loss of data is intermittent in other cases permanent. There is a separate section for Telephone Numbers and the lost Contact data sometimes appears there but not always. My brother in law binned his last year: I should have listened to his advice.

Well this phone is good but I must say not great, however its far easier to operate than the first communicator I got my hands on back 1999. I have used a mobile phone for the ten years now and this Nokia 9300 is the best from a business point of view and once you actually read the instructions (which I had to do this for the first time ever) it pretty easy to use. However there are some things that really annoy me!!! things like it dose not always recognize the callers number even though the number is stored in both phone memory and sim memory, the ring tone is not loud enough so I keep missing calls when its in my pocket and so that brings me to my biggest gripe the lack of a “Vibrate” alert system (I know I can go buy a blue tooth vibrating hands free but I rather not look like a big bummy wearing one of thoughts things on ear walking down the high street). I really do like this phone, I can live with the caller ID thing not always working, but a simple little Vibrate mode just spoils it rating for me.

I purchased this phone November 2004. It works great in the EU but has really poor reception here in the USA. Placed next to my old 3650 it is always 2 bars less. I also had problems with the internal backlight not working. It appears that a firmware upgrade worked fine. Annoying things: -You have to remove the back cover to get at the MMC card. -The SIM is impossible to remove without a sharp object to push the SIM out far enough to grasp it with your fingers. -It includes an Utility Application called FileBrowse that doesn't work. Nobody at Nokia knows what it is for. -The Windows desktop software conflicts with many windows apps so it makes syncronizing useless. -No provider in the US is offering it yet. It is probably because of poor reception @ 1900Mhz. I spent soo much money on it I can't justify replacing it just yet. The bottom line is not to buy it for use in the USA.

This phone was bought to replace a Palm Tungsten E and a Nokia 6310i; I was tired of carrying two devices. Sadly, the 9300 just doesn't do it for me. Compared to my Tungsten, the Nokia is slow. Navigating the desktop is fiddly with the joystick - no stylus. The ToDo list and calendar are tedious to use, in contrast to the Palm which is so intuitive. On the plus side, the screen is great and it seems well made. The messaging (e-mail and text) works nicely. But, I think it will have to go - it makes me realise just how good the Palm really is.

For what it is, this is a great device. People should stop comparing a communicator/smartphone to a standard mobile, of course it's going to be larger, a mobile phone doesn't give you full attachment email service with spreadsheets, presentations and a full qwerty keypad. As for a comparison against PDA devices, anyone who has ever tried to write an email on a touch screen on a train will be hugely appreciative of a decent keypad. The software range is great, just about everything you could want to do with it is available. I've set up a HTML editor and FTP service and now I can amend my client's websites from the pub without carrying anything bigger than a 6310i! The build quality is great, it feels sturdy and reliable, not tacky or fragile like so many other devices. The screen clarity is great even in well lit areas. Perhaps my only gripe is that operations can sometimes be a little slow, not so much though that it's a problem, I'm just impatient. As for not including a camera, others have made valid points here, including a camera would exclude this device from a lot of jobs and locations and how many of you honestly need a camera everywhere you go? and if you do, even a 2megapixel standard probably isn't going to be good enough for what you need. If you want a camera phone, you probably don't want a business phone. If you need a quality camera for your business, a good bluetooth camera or hot-swap memory card will provide a much better result than any camera that could realistically have been incorporated without reverting back to something the size of a brick. As for Wi-Fi, again there's the size issue to consider and would it actually be that much of a benefit? the GPRS connection is pretty damn good and the coverage of GPRS is so much wider thta Wi-Fi that it's hardly worth considering at the moment. All in all, this is a great device which fits so many business purposes. If you're not after a business tool, what are you doing looking at this dumbass!

Okay, moved from my I-Mate Jam to the Nokia 9300 a few days ago after seeing one for the first time (couldnt help myself! ). Thought I would post my intial thoughts about it compared to my Windows Mobile experience. Interesting fact: Nokia dont class the 9300 as one of their Communicator range, prefering instead to call it a "smartphone", despite the internal specifications (memory, processor and even firmware) being identical to the 9500. Apparently it has something to do with it being aimed at the lifestyle user, rather than the business customer. Whatever! Its a Communicator Nokia, nothing you can say will change that! Getting one of these babies in your hands is like the first time you got a Jam in your hand; its like the first time you saw the physical difference in size between an XDAII and a Jam, you cant help but say "Wow!". A friend of mine has a 9500, and its bloody huge, I wouldnt even think about owning one, as it really IS a brick. The 9300, however, is more akin in terms of size to a Nokia 6310i, something many business people out there will already be used to carrying around. Not only is it reduced in length and width compared to a 9500, it weighs a whole hell of a lot less too! Despite this size reduction, Nokia has managed to include a 65000 colour TFT screen with the same resolution as the 9500 (if physically slightly smaller) and excellent contrast. I sometimes noted that it was difficult to see the screen of my Jam in direct sunlight, as it is difficult with most mobiles. Not so with the 9300, however, the screen is bright a clear in all lighting conditions. The keyboard is full qwerty, and I found the size of the device perfect for "two thumb" typing whilst holding the device in your hands. I do have one or two gripes about the keyboard; the comma and full stop keys are on the left side of the keyboard, not the right, just to confuse everyone, but I have gotten used to this very quickly. Also, the tactile feedback could be better, but to counter this, the device gives you an audible "click" when a keypress is made, so these are only minor problems. The device has an 80MB internal memory, which is massive for a Symbian device as the OS has far less resource requirements in comparison to Windows Mobile. Since I started using the 9300, I have yet to see a low memory error, and that is with ALL main applications open and running in the background as well as a few documents!! Beat that MS!! Despite the ample internal memory, Nokia includes a 128MB MMC card inside the box free, so memory is not an immediate concern for all but the most serious gadget freak! I was rather suprised that Nokia included a normal MMC card with the 9300 rather than the RS-MMC rubbish they have been forcing on customers who use the rest of their new smartphone range, but upon reflection, I would think it would have caused too many complaints from upgrading Communicator customers if they would have been required to shell out for all new memory, rather than use what was in their previous 9x00. If I have one gripe about the 9300's performance, it would have to be the processor Nokia chose to build in to the device. They chose to ship the 9300 and its fatter brother, the 9500, with 150Mhz processors which can sometimes chug a bit under heavy stress. I found that leaving programs constantly in use (like messaging) open in the background and multi-tasking alleviates this somewhat, as it is always quicker to switch to an open application than to start from scratch every time. Thankfully, in this, the 9300's 80MB internal memory helps a LOT!! As for the obvious ommisions from the 9300 in comparison to the 9500, this being the camera and WiFi, for myself their non-inclusion doesnt bother me much. WiFi would have been useful, but as I come from an I-Mate Jam (which didnt have it either) I cant say its something I am missing. I thought I would miss the camera a lot more than I do until I remembered the last time I used my Jam's camera: I remember trying to use it in a pub to take a comedic picture of my best friend Aidan, and then realised that the camera was so poor, you couldnt make out ANYTHING in the shot anyway. I never really used the camera on my Jam since I realised that it was bad, so I am not missing it not being on the 9300 either. Besides, I realised a work around yesterday whilst also in the pub! I just took a picture with my mate's P900, and then bluetoothed it to my 9300 in seconds. The bluetooth implementation on the 9300, by the way, is flawless. Its a lot more stable than my Jam and seems to transfer quicker as well. Overall, my impression of the 9300 is highly favourable. I wanted to update from my Jam to a device with a keyboard, as the on-screen T9 thing was getting old real fast, and I dont think I could have chosen a better replacement. Okay, its Symbian, so there are a lot of MS fan-boys on here who arent going to hear a word I have said above, and will be instantly dissmissive of this mini-review, but I have to say that in summation, the Nokia 9300 is a far better phone than my I-Mate Jam, and has more than enough PDA features to satisfy me. I am glad I switched, the only thing I will miss about my Jam is the community on here with you guys, but I will still be about, just for the craic! Conclusion then: The Nokia 9300 has a thumbs up from me, and I recommend it highly.

I got this as a gift, I've been reviewing all smartphones available for sometime. And I've come to the conclusion (after using it) that Nokia 9300 beats all - if you're looking for a pure business phone. At the end of the day, pulling out a stylus just to type is kinda cumbersome. A real smart phone shud let you type with your God given fingers! Wifi would have been something I'd like on this... but so far no probs. This is much smaller than other 9XXX - and they havent compromised on keyboard or screen size.

I've had the Nokia 9000, 9110, Sony Ericsson P800 and P910 as phone/pda over the years. So far, the 9300 is as good as it gets. On the plus side, compared to earlier Nokia Communicators size is really much smaller - it's about the same size as normal phones from five years ago. The keyboard is really easy to use, although it's a two-thumb workout. Having a fax facility back again (as in the original Communicators) is great. Battery lasts ages. Screen is really clear. I've always been a champion of the clamshell design. Now for the best bits... both the supplied USB cable and the Bluetooth work great with my laptop PC, and it was really easy to set up. On the downside... The mouse movement which is a bit hit and miss. No vibrate. Browser takes some getting used to. Features on other smart phones I don't miss: a camera, touch screen. Nice to have - WiFi. Acid test... unlike so many others, this phone has not crashed yet! In conclusion, being smaller has surprisingly not been a compromise - the keyboard and screen are really excellent.

I've now resigned myself to using my digital camera and transferring photos to the phone using the memory card. That said, the build quality, features, overall useability and general feel of this phone is truly excellent. The only thing this phone truly needs is a headphone socket to make proper use of the MP3 player - what a tragic waste.
