Nokia 6300 Philippines: The Big Thing in a Small Package

If you are looking for a phone that delivers as much as it looks good, then the Nokia 6300 is the best choice in the market. Though suffering the lack of being as intelligent as other modern smartphones and even lacking in the 3G department, the Nokia 6300 is a handset that, though not the cleverest of mobiles, packs a punch good enough to make sure that it stays in the market.

A Slim Candy Bar Design with the Nokia 6300

Bearing a Tri-band GSM with GPRS (though slow to take in and release data-related tasks), the Nokia 6300 is built to be extremely comfortable to hold and handle. You should be amazed with blue lights on the left and right edges that light up with a flash when an SMS arrives. Furthermore, at 91g in weight (close to featherweight) and for the fact that is 106.4mm tall, 43.6mm wide, and 11.7mm thick, the Nokia 6300 is a nice and small phone to hold and operate. The 6300’s primary keys are clearly marked and sizeable making fast-texting unproblematic and quite enjoyable (should you like using traditional alphanumeric keypads). The Nokia Call and End keys along with the selection keys are well-spaced and the central select button and navigation button are large enough for comfort.

This Slim Candy Bar phone runs on Symbian Series 40. Though not as complicated as Series 60 and not as versatile in manners of built-in applications, it boasts strong features like the very useful Active Standby mode which allows you to quickly access applications on the home screen of the phone. Furthermore, you can synchronize the phone to a PC with ease. The camera on the other hand is quite meager as it has a maximum of 1600x1200 pixels of picture-capturing capabilities. Lacking also a self-portrait mirror or flash, you can’t expect an over-the-top result when you take pictures with the Nokia 6300. However, with a steady hand and a few tweaks in the settings, you can enjoy the simplicity of the camera.

To top it all off, as of most Nokia phones, you can get an impressive 8 hours and 54 minutes of continuous music playing on a full charge.

Should You Own It?

Well, what’s the most lacking feature of the Nokia 6300 is the internal memory of 128MB, though this can be overcome with a purchase of a larger external memory storage. But as far as mid-range affordable, and compact phones go, the Nokia 6300 is a good choice on its own.
