The Nokia 6300 is Nokia's first take on slim phone. At times when other companies like Motorola and Samsung are belting out one mobile phone after another for the coveted title of the most slimmest handset, Nokia has secluded itself from this race for unknown reasons. With the launch of Nokia 6300, the company has sent out strong signals to its competitors about its intention to enter the slim phone category. As their first attempt, the Finnish global leader have done quite a commendable job with the Nokia 6300.
The Nokia 6300 is a compact, candy bar handset featuring sophisticated stainless steel casing. The handset's dimension reads 106.4 x 43.6 x 11.7 mm. At just 91g it is as close to a featherweight for a phone with so much metal in its casing. A good proportion of the front fascia and the back battery cover are made of cold silver metal. Its 16.7 million true color deliverable TFT screen, that measures 2 inch from corner to corner, holds out information pretty clear even in bright sunshine. The Nokia 6300's main keys are sizeable and clearly marked, making fast texting unproblematic. All in all, the Nokia 6300 is very small and comfortable to use, extremely well designed and has a bit of brash showiness about it.
