Nokia 6301 review

8.8/10 AVG.

Informr score
The Nokia 6301 currently has an Informr score of 8.8 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 4 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

How many different phones has Nokia made? Wait. I know this. 5 Million? 6 Million?

Okay, not so much, but no one will deny that Nokia is a prolific phone manufacturer. More importantly, they make good stuff.

The Nokia 6301 is in the “good stuff” category. While no fancy touch screen here, you will get a quality 8x zoom, 2MP camera, Bluetooth, expandable memory via microSD, a decent music player, FM radio, all weighing in at 3.3 ounces. Heck it even comes with a headset!

The Nokia 6301 is everything familiar. Familiar silver finish, standard 9-key keypad and candy bar form factor feel comfortable in your hand. Add in a quality 2 inch 320 x 240 pixel resolution and you’ve got another dependable Nokia device. Talk time is rated at 210 minutes.

If you are one of those reasonable, intelligent people who wants a good phone to ACTUALLY MAKE PHONE CALLS, you should check out this offering from Nokia.
