I hate this phone... I can't wait to toss it away :( In fact, I'm going to have a Destruction Party for it. It looks cute, and can do things like take photos, connect to the internet and such, but the functionality is horrendous.
Here are my bug-bears: 1) Keyboard is WAY to small, and even with SWYPE, I have to type most messages twice over because of all the mistakes I make on the tiny screen. Example of text sent before proof-reading: "I think I'll poo round this evening." That went well. 2) Ending calls is an embarrassment. This is how it goes: Say goodbye. Press 'screen unlock' button twice on side of phone to end call. Screen unlocks instead of call ending. Other person: 'Um, you're still there? Is this a 'No, you hang up' situation?' 'Um...' Ring off. 3) Screen resolution for online media is very basic. To view your friends' Facebook photos, you actually have to download them in order to see what's going on. Friend picks up your phone with piles of other people's personal photos stored... awkward.
This phone does the basics, and would like to do more, but it doesn't quite get there, and causes way too much frustration for a heavy phone user such as myself. My emphatic advice: Don't do it!

That said, I have had great experiences with Samsung in the past, and I believe their latest Galaxy offering is a whizz, so that'll be my next upgrade. In the meantime, I'll be planning which size hammer would be best for my Destruction Party...

I agree with as you say screen size is not enough, but think... if it had a screen like 3.5 inch, it will cost more than. or it will be the phone with lowest resolution.
if you need a larger display, go for an expensive one. if it matters with typing, use 3x5 keyboard, don't use QWERTY at vertical.

You can end call with power key! just activate it...

automatically turns silent mode depends on handling the device. avoid pressing vol. down for long.

this is a buget smart phone and please be satisfy for the features you got for this price. if not buy a high end device like S3, or at least a Galaxy Ace.
Sorry for the comment

The S5300 must be the worst phone I have ever owned. It frequently turns silent mode on so I miss calls and the screen keyboard is hard to use without touching the wrong keys, no matter how careful I am and I don't have very big fingers to begin with. Worst so far, I ended a call with the power off button as usual... but it didn't work and my entire $50 credit I bought that day was used up while the phone sat in the dash of my car! 55 minutes while I drove. Several times since I have had to push the button a number of times to end a call. Just really shoddy and costly to own.
