Nokia 6300 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

The Nokia 6300 is a great phone if you are looking for just a phone

Simple and easy to use, uncomplicated, great at just being a phone

No dedicated music buttons, no flash on camera, no 3G, Series 40 rather than Series 60

The Nokia 6300 is a great phone if you are looking for just a phone. Of course as soon as you step away from this remit and want better quality pictures, dedicated music buttons, or 3G connectivity then it all starts to fall short. However as the 6300...

Nokia 6300 review

 

A phone that doesn't try to blind you with science

Slim, stainless steel casing ; Execellent colour screen ; 2-megapixel camera

No 3G ; No flash for camera ; Small internal memory

At no point is this phone's lack of wizardry an embarrassment. It does the basics and does them well

Nokia 6300 review

 

A classically honed Nokia with fuss-free features, the 6300 is perfect for those you want a phone that just works

A slimline Nokia stamped with class and quality. Simple, perhaps, but elegant and fuss-free

Nokia 6300

 

Is the Nokia 6300 the perfect mid-range mobile?

Internal memory is a bit short and Nokia should have bundled a larger microSD card to compensate and a mini USB cable. But in general this is a solid and understated mid-range phone that deserves to be popular.

What you do get is a sleek, classic design that incorporates stylish stainless-steel surfaces and a simple beauty. It doesn't try to hide that it is a phone behind touch screens or sliding fascias, instead it simply says ‘I am a phone, here I am', and...
