Written on: 29/06/2003 by marcus. (1 review written)

This is a nice little fone - It has a lot of nice features such as MMS, polyphonic ringtones and IR - this is very useful for getting files off the computer. Erix is quite a good game, its great fun at the moment. However, i downloaded alien scum and Deep Abyss, both of which are ruined by the unresponsive controls. The phone seems to have trouble keeping up with the rate at which they are typed, this is especially a problem for a speed txter sush as me. The reception is good, the colour… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/06/2003 by Spaniel. (1 review written)

I have mixed feelings about the T300 after owning it for six months. It only cost me £20 on an upgrade and my old fone a sony j70 had been fantastic so I stuck with the brand. The phones looks are quite unusual, a little i mac looking tho quite boxy, it appealed to me anyway tho in retrospect the t68i is nicer. The screen is quite low res and is only 256 colour but its a lot prettier than black and green and is fine for colour logos and pretty menus. Although I didn't get a camera attachment… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/06/2003 by racheroo. (1 review written)

I have had this T300 now for about 6 months and it has by far been the best phone i have had (not much compettition) with the clear and cool colour screen and easy cip on camera it makes it one of the best phones around.
The colour screen on the phone is clear and it has many good backgrounds to chose from (56) with the ability to take pictures and add these to the phone and then have them as backgrounds also appealing.
You are able to store up to 55 messages until it is 80% full which is… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/06/2003 by brianv. (1 review written)

Having read some of the previous reviews it is interesting to note just how wide opinion can be! Just goes to show that one device, what ever it is, can't be everything to everyone! I have just replaced a Panasonic GD67 with this Sony Ericsson T300 mainly because I had dropped it and the speaker was now working intermittently. But I'm very glad I did!

I text a lot and the text system on the T300 is streets ahead of the Panasonic! I like the way it counts down the last 25 characters of the… Read Full Review

if i were you, id rather choose the SE T300, but yes the motorola has a bigger screen with more colors, but the t300 is a better phone,the ringtones r louder and better, the menus is way faster and it doesnt feel cheapy and flimsy like the moto t720i..........i hope this helps you

Written on: 28/04/2003 by mary. (1 review written)

It lies good in the hand but it feels fragile, the battery doesn't clip well which gives me this annoying feeling it will fall out. For Locking/unlocking the keypad instead of one long keypress you need to make three (often more because of the joystick which goes where you don't want to), and I don't want it locked all the time to use auto lock!
Accesing inbox or write SMS is quicker because of numbered menus, but typing the messages is ANNOYING because of long response time to keypress (and… Read Full Review

96778_Phat_Tony.'s Response to 92841_mary.'s Review

Written on: 11/05/2003

The thing you have to remember is that the t300 is a budget, entry level mobile phone. It doesn't have the same quality of workmanship as let's say, the samsung v200. The software is old(used on the t68) and so shouldn't be expected to perform excellently, although sonyericsson have had time to perfect it. The camera is a let down, but what can you expect a camera to produce when it's produced for a phone which can only display 256 colours. Get a phone that can do 65k. You gat what you pay for. If the phone cost loads then i'd sympathise completely with you, i know i'm a little annoyed at mine, but in comparison to other camera phones it offers great value for money (unless you were ripped off).
<br>Thanks for reading

Written on: 25/07/2003

whoa there tiger!!! I never said Nokia is the way to go. Many people think that as Nokias are built solid and have a good rep amongst the masses but don't forget that Nokia doesn't offer everything.
<br>For a start, their phones display a maximum of 4096 colours. The Nokia 3650 has a video camera. What kind of manufacturer combines both these features in a monstrosity of a phone - Nokia, and....only Nokia. What were they smoking. (can i write that?). The result is poor contrast and the sort of picture quality that makes you gag if you've experienced a Phone which can display 65,000 colours. Samsung, Sharp and panasonic all produce top of the line masterpieces which i can only bow to. I've had my Samsung V200 for over a month now. It performs like a dream. Faster at turning on than the T300 and superior in EVERY way. Wap is faster, ringtones clearer, charging faster and it's definately more asthetically pleasing. The T300 was good value for money, and the first affordable camera phone. But in a matter of months, it has been surpassed by other manufacturers. They also got things the wrong way round. See, the charger is light and well designed, and the phone...well, the effort was there but it could just have been the guys at sonyerisson letting the work-experience lad have a go at designing a phone. Oh, and one last thing. If you're after a camera phone, consider this. In about 6 months time, camera phones will be banned from areas where children are present and video conference calling will probably leave most handsets incapable of the feature obsolete.
<br>Once again, please don't just consider a nokia due to past successes (32xx, 33xx and 82xx series handsets). If they work for you, and i just can't convert you to another manufacturer then i'll just have to survive. But Samsung make electronic parts for most phone manufacturers and themselves. It may have Nokia, motorola or Sagem printed on it but it's running on samsung technology. Think about it....
<br>Sorry about the extra long review there folks. Just to let you know, i do agree with you points Ben and i'm not faulting you with your Nokia dependancy but i just don't like following the crowd. I want to stand out. My Samsung V200 does it. I think it's a V205 in your part of the world, ben. It's one awesome phone.

Written on: 24/04/2003 by Mobile Meister. (1 review written)

After reading reports on this website about the Sony Ericsson T300 being slow, I was a bit dubious about buying it but I'm glad I didn't let that put me off. For the past two years I've had a Nokia 3210 and it's the most reliable phone I've owned. The Sony Ericsson is tons better and if I get bored I can download new games and the polyphonic tones are great. It has multimedia messaging and will store tons of SMS messages at one time. I think its looks are good - not the best around but… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2003 by Jonny. (1 review written)

I've owned my SonyEricsson T300 for 2 months now and i have found it to be a great phone. I was looking for a replacment for my ageing Nokia 3330 and the T300 was very good value for money. For around £150, you get a phone with polyphonic ringtones, colour screen, GPRS, and its compatible with a camera. This phone is pretty much as good as the T68i, but it costs much less, and has features such as polyphonic ringtones which the T68 lacks. The sound quailty and reception is also quite… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/04/2003 by Paul Shephard. (1 review written)

I have had the Sony Ericsson T300 for a month now and I easily get fed up of phones. This one i haven't. The features are endless and even if you are bored of the current applications, it is simple to download new ones. The style of the phone is very nice. Being a retro style. The only problem i had was that it gets scratched very easily so make sure you keep it in a cover. A good point is the screen quality. If you are very technical about phones, you will realise that the phone has less… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/03/2003 by Stu. (1 review written)

This phone has some great features but having read most of the reviews I can`t believe I`m the ony one saying the build is poor. Particularly the battery which doesn`t clip in very well and gives a "springy" feeling that gets right on my nerves when using.

Battery life is pretty good (compared to some) but another poor feature is its response time to key presses. Polyphonic ring tones are bit quiet too.

Really like the style though but the phone is going back because of the silly way the… Read Full Review

Thanks for the helpful comments. I was thinking of buying this phone but may not do so now. Yours is the second comment about dodgy battery fitting that I have come across. (The other is in a review of the T300 at mobile-review.com, in case you're interested.)

I bought the T300 hoping for great things and found myself bitterly dissapointed. The phone is a good size and weight, but sadly thats where the good points end. The camera is capable of taking a fair picture but the phones screen res is'nt capable of showing it. The menu navigation if made clumsy by the tiny thumbstick which also hinders the game playing. If you want a phone that does everything then go for one with a good screen and better navigation… Read Full Review

I used to have a Nokia 8310 before this Sony Ericsson T300. This phone is probably better in that it works, gives reception, doesn't crash! The polyphonic tones are cool too, specially if you haven't had them before. It's not a perfect phone though.

This phone is small, but noticeably chunky compared to the 8310. You can feel it in your pocket! Also the colour screen is just a token gesture to having colour, being only 256 colour. It's not much use at all. The camera is a nice extra if you… Read Full Review
