Based on Series 40, this ‘non-smart’ phone is enviably faster than its smart kin and its operation is very stable. As a phone it features the typically ‘Nokian’ high level: a strong signal reception and very good sound quality. Incoming you get clear sound with volume above the average, while the other side hears you also relatevely clear and very strong. About the only remark one can make is the slightly monotonous, yet clearly audible voice pitch. The speakerphone is also of very good quality and is usable, but as the phone speaker is on the back side, once you put it on a table, the voices will be lower and not so clear.

Nokia 6300 is a fine phone. It is simply stylish, classical and high-quality; though, unfortunately, somewhat dull. It is definitely oriented towards a more ‘grown-up’ age group, rendering it inappropriate for young people. If we add its stable operation as a phone with quite a few functions to the good image, then the 6300 can definitely be said to come up to our expectations.
