One of the best phones I have ever had...
The Nokia 6300 is a discontinued mobile phone that I orginally bought a year or so ago. When first purchased it was the most high tech phone I had ever had (sheltered upbringing and all that). However, I was deeply saddened when I lost it, not just for the sim card that contained all my text messages, numbers and picures on, but because I had lost a great phone.
Can you imagine my surprise and delight to find one, brand new, in the box and factory sealed on ebay just last week!?!
I immediately watched the item and consequently won it. Although it cost me more than the original did a year ago, I feel it was worth it.
The 6300 is one of the easiest phones to use, whilst still remaining very high quality. The camera is a mere 2 megapixels, but I don't really care. It might have made more sense to other people if I had just saved and bought some new top of the range phone with all the apps, facebook access, super duper camera etc, but I disagree.
I'm a firm believer in buying good products that last and this is true of all technological goods I have bought over the years. The Nokia 6300 certainly cuts the mustard in terms of mobile phone for me.
Like i mentioned previously, it is extremely simple to use and despite having used a Sony Ericsson for the past year, found it just as easy to adjust back to the old ways.
Text messaging is exceptionally simple. The colour screen and camera are adequate for decent pictures and the added benefit of having a built in MP3 player is genius. It's not a music phone but it holds just enough tracks to have plenty to choose from for a ringtone. A bonus for me, as a lot of the music I like cannot be bought as a ringtone, so it's nice to be able to incorporate my own music.
Not only this, the internet access is quick and very efficiant. Although I don't tend to use it much, it is very good for searching google as and when you need to and adequate for checking emails.
The all black edition (which is the one I have) looks sleek and professional, without being overly complicated, bulky or unusual.
Though it does not boast the same as an IPhone in the way of apps, everything about it suits me perfectly (and I've always hated the IPhone anyway!). I like the simple, but also like the stylish and the Nokia 6300 suits both of these perfectly.

nokia 6300 mobile phone
so simple to use just like most nokia phones but it does have its faults camera quality is pretty poor for a 2 mega pixel but i just wanted mine for texting and making calls mp3 player ok but not brilliant dosnt like memory cards over 2mb i found it froze quite often with a 4mb saying that im on my 2nd nokia 6300 and i found that which ever memory card you use wants its half full they do like to freeze or switch off during 3gp playback or full 5 min songs battery life average needs a full charge every 36 hours even in sleep mode but its practical because its light weight easy to use and value for money fits easy in my hand bag later versions ie late 2008 early 2009 models do have a design fault the on and off button comes away from motherboard due to poor soldering i still would rate has good

Why I bought a Nokia 6300
The Nokia 6300 is a very attractive phone, it was released in 2007.
This became the company phone of choice of that era.
It is a delight to use, audio quality is excellent, although can sound a little swishy on hands free.
The camera is average, will do in an emergency, but I'm very critical when it comes to pictures.
The display works very well indeed, is nice & bright.
With the arrival of the iPhone & the Desire, these phones are available cheaply on the secondhand market.
Battery life has been the main criticism of this phone, it is still pretty good though.

Slim, robust, loads of features and easy to use.
My girlfriend had this phone as a work phone and I remember thinking "this looks really nice". We're now getting married next year so I ended my IPhone contract and decided to look for cheap phone to save a fortune. Unfortunately I was horrified at the sub-standard phones you can buy from supermarkets and the like, and even more so at their "cheap" prices - £50 for a brick, no thanks. I bought the Nokia 6300, used for £47 on ebay and it's perfect. Although I can't say it's the best phone ever since its a standard-type phone, it's definately the best I've seen in it's class. The phone itself looks sleek, shiney and modern, surrounded in a sturdy, well-built metal case and is very light to hold. Like most Nokia phones it's very easy to use and the screen is sharp and clear. Battery lasts unsurprisingly well and there is a 2mp camera and video recorder for some multimedia options. There are more things you can do but you'd probably look at buying a more expensive phone if you needed more advanced functionality. As a contrast the negative points are: internet is a little slow and basic (Remember, I used to have an IPhone), little internal memory but you can get a micro SD card for more data storage, and the volume isn't that loud when speaking to someone but it's certainly acceptable. Overall, if you need a business multimedia phone you might have to fork out £40 a month for a Blackberry or IPhone, if you need a phone that's cost-effective and doesn't make you feel embarrassed when you take it out your pocket in public, buy this!
