Nokia 6300 Review
Apart from the options to compose standard text and multimedia messages, the Messages menu features also Multimedia Plus Message and Flash Message. You can also avail yourself of a mobile e-mail client and Instant Messenger.
In our view, one of the principal shortcomings of Nokia 6300 is being solely a three-band GSM/EDGE 2G phone, which means it cannot operate properly on all continents. Nokia announced two modifications, one for America with 850 / 1800 / 1900 MHz and one for Europe at 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz support.
Locally the unit uses Bluetooth to connect to other devices, supporting the 2.0 version. Much to our regret, stereo sound reproduction is not available due to the lack of A2DP profile support. Computer connection is plausible thru a completely standard mini-USB cable. The set software enables easy information transfer from and to the phone.
The built-in browser caused our utmost disappointment – it is only WAP, not HTML, and to use it for visualizing Internet pages in our opinion is nearly useless. It is rather obsolete and a pity that a QVGA resolution phone does not dispose of a real browser.
