Nokia 6300 – Truly beautifully simple

When Nokia designed its slogan for the Nokia 6300: “Simply beautiful. Beautifully simple.” – They were serious! The 6300 has been stripped down to the bare essentials for a camera phone. While the sheer simplicity of this phone may not be for everyone, if you’re looking for a simple camera phone solution, here’s what you’ll get with this Nokia…

For starters, the camera itself can take photos up to a very useful 2 megapixels. There is a built-in 8x digital zoom. Although there is no LED photo light and no flash included, the camera does support video recording.

You won’t get very far with the onboard memory, which weighs in at less than 8 megabytes, but there is a microSD slot that will support up to 2 gigabytes. Nokia includes a 128-megabyte microSD card, which I’d say is the minimum size you need for this phone to work.

The phone supports multimedia although it does not include support for some of the popular formats like WMA but of course it supports mp3 as well as several other miscellaneous formats. There’s a built-in music player, and you can get stereo FM radio with Visual Radio capabilities, and there’s also a built-in video player. Ringtones can be polyphonic or real music. You can even play JAVA based games on this phone. A headphone jack is included which of course enhances the stereo experience.

For those users who tend to be a bit more traditional, there is a 12-button alphanumeric keypad, as well as 5 more buttons for use of dedicated features and menus. The buttons are relatively large and easy to manipulate, and not having to use a touch screen was a bit refreshing.

The two-inch (30 x 40 mm) screen displays in 24-bit and up to 16 million colors for a rich viewing experience. The resolution on the screen is 240 x 320 pixels.

Battery life may be a bit of a limitation for power users, but frankly, a power user is unlikely to be drawn to buying this phone in the first place. The battery will last 3.5 hours of talk time and just over 14 days of standby time.

This phone is capable of browsing the Internet and includes an XHTML-compliant browser as well as support for Adobe Flash media using Flash Lite technology, which greatly contributes to enhancing the multimedia experience of mobile phone browsing. You can even stream video. You’ll also be able to check your email on the go, and you’ll also be able to send text messages. On the delicious side, the phone uses Nokia Xpress for audio messaging, one of the fastest and easiest ways to send voice or sound clips.

The phone includes Nokia’s award-winning suite for managing your personal information, as well as support for USB connectivity.

The 6300 is a solid, well-made option for a stripped-down camera phone, and as long as you understand what the phone can and can’t do before you buy it, as far as we can find, you should have no reason to be dissatisfied. with your choice.
