The Nokia 6300 is a mobile telephone handset produced by Nokia. The device is designed for typical use in Europe but for optimum use in North America.

The phone supports MicroSD cards up to 2 GB (4 GB with the 6300i variant), meaning that the phone can be used practically as an MP3 player. Using the supplied and freely available Nokia PC Suite, one can convert all the MP3 files in a music library to e-AAC in order to fit more on the card. However, the 2.5 mm headphone jack means that few commercial headsets will fit the phone but an optional headset, Nokia Stereo Headset model HS-81 (made By Sennheiser exclusively for Nokia), does offer as a better alternate replacement for the supplied standard headset due to its better bass sound reproduction quality.

Like most other new Nokia phones, the 6300 eschews their old pop port for a standard mini-USB connector. The phone also has two slow flashing lights on the side, to show missed calls or messages.

With firmware version 06.01 and later, Nokia 6300 is capable of playing MPEG-4 (*.mp4) files with a QCIF resolution of 176*144 at 25 frames per second. The phone allows the user to view the video clips in full-screen landscape mode and set the fast-forward/rewind interval from a few seconds to minutes.

Improved audio quality for music playback was also noted for this firmware version, thus making the Nokia 6300 a music phone similar to its counterparts, the Nokia XpressMusic.

In addition, video clips can replace ringtones so that an actual motion picture is shown while there is an incoming call.

Solid phone that has been around for a year now. It's one of those phones you can't really find anything wrong with.

It feels solid due to its metal casing, it has a nice big screen. Good call quality.

I give it a 75
