Nice phone it is.......or else I would not have brought it & still keeping it! I agree the call quality is not bad at all. Major problem with this phone is the quality of the speaker phone, which when I turn up the volume; the sound is loud enough but the sound quality became bad! The other major problem is with the network search; which is extremely slow. No 'vibrate & ring' is another major design fault with all Samsung phones.
Talking about function, this phone really do not have much.......even for its size! I have a korean made pocket PDA which is smaller in all dimension except a little thicker at 13mm, have 10 times more function than my P300 BUT cost less the have the price of this phone!!! Some people (including male & female) prefer the look of my korean mini-PDA, & some prefer the P300. (The korean PDA feels nicer when holding in my hand because it is narrower & has got rounder edges).
i've had mine about 2 weeks now, i can honestly say it's a great phone. The ring tones are not the loudest in the world but its loud enough to let you know someones calling. I really couldn't believe that samsung managed to fit all the features that they have into such a small and slick case. I also dont get why some people have such a problem with its looks, in the flesh it looks like a well built expensive bit of kit that stands out from the crowd and eveyone whos seen mine has loved it. Some people have stated that the call quality is poor, vthis is not something that i have found or had anyone i was calling comment upon. I would recommend this phone to anyone.
hey guys! for those guys that had p300! is there any chance that the p300 will experience lagging when the 80mb mem is almost full? im planning to buy 1! but the most important aspect of a fone for me is that part. as we all know, fone is very important and the hanging and lagging can cause everything! tnx!
im currently choosing between p300 and SE-w900, im a lil bit confuse... i like d w900's specs., specially d 470mb internel mem. but what turns me off is the lagging, and its size, im a fashion type of guy and i like the p300 bec. of its unique design and it come along with 2 batteries... and 80mb internal mem. is not quite bad, though its not expandable, but what i like about it is that its not lagging, im still weighing it out between this 2.
I really like this phone very much but why there is so complaints about this. I just don't understand and shut up your big mouth if u are saying bad things. I hope it can upgrade to 8GB memory and 1800mah battery as soon as possible. Please tell me the details as soon as possible.
I've found another con when dialling phone number under sunlight.......the reflection of sunlight from the stainless steel metal blind the eyes.
-This phone is well made. Look is very personal.
-Features quite lousy.......not even a dictionary nor radio.
-There is no vibrate & ring feature.
-Searching for available network (especially in manual mode) is extremely slow.
-Lots of static from the speaker phone when turn up the ring volume to 4/5.
-The camera quality is only acceptable.
-Prints are a bit too small to read comfortably; except those for dialling a phone #.
-Ring volume too quiet & the ring quality from the speaker is un-impressive.
-Not comfortable to handle (too wide).
The battery standby time lasted longer than I had expected.
My advise :- If anyone like this phone because it's made from stainless steel; buy the Nokia 8800 if you can afford the extra cost (I own both of them).
Hi Fred, there doesn't seem to be any option for the sms to save to the phone automatically.
Well I've had this phone for just over a week now and I'm still loving it. The only thing I don't like is the usual Samsung lack of 'vibe and ring' option. So if anyone nows where I can download a 'ring ring' type tone with built in vibrate let me know!
Thanks for your advice.
However, is there anyway to set the sms automaticallt stored to the phone when it arrives. It seems like all the sms are automatically stored in all other phones except this one.
what the hells wrong with samsung??!!! another calculator in the making!! is samsung penetrating the calculator market??
hello poh??!?? telepon... jackamawatan!!!
had the phone for 1 week and impressed thus far. agree that the phone must be seen in person to get a good idea of quality, design and size.
Overall the phone has good features and best of all is the unique design and size. my previous phone was the V3 and i like them both. everyone has the V3 so i bought this when i lost my V3
Bought the Samsung P300 last week. It is a fantastic looking phone and very comfortable to hold/ definitely an eye catcher. I have, however, returned the phone and am in the process of purchasing the new Sony K800i. For me the limitations of the phone outweigh the cool design. My main criticims are:
1) Very bad audio quality (documented design flaw) - ask the person you have called to report back on how clear the call is.
2) Very quiet ring tone and no vibrating call.
3) Rather poor camera (compared to the 2/3mp phones available now).
Despite these problems it is a nice phone but I figured I would be bored of it after a couple of months and would be tied to an 18m contract.
Can anyone help?
1. Try out the function of the & notice that I cannot assign any other function to the 2 soft keys the soft keys! Am I correct?
2. Also by accident notice that there is a function somewhere where you are allowed to change the keypad format(only 2 choices)......I am unable to find this function again even after spending over 2 hours!!!.......Anyone know where this function is located? pls. advise.
Hi Fred, texts are stored automatically to the sim, to move to the phone open the message, hit 'options' then option 4 is 'move to phone'.
And no you can't change the SMS tones, your stuck with whats on the phone.
Just got the phone. Have 2 questions that I can't figure out, see if anyone out there can help me out.
1. All the sms I received were stored in the simcard, how can I change to store in phone.
2. Can I use my own mp3 music as the SMS ringtone?
Thank you very much in advance.
My phone arrived today and so far I am impressed, the "0" key takes some getting used to and I must say that the sound is not that loud ringing and I have found that I have missed a few calls, could this be a ploy to get me to ring people back, very impressed with the overall quality of the phone, My last phone was a black berry, and a V3i this is much better. I would highly recomend that you see it a shop first as the web images do not do it justice.
I weighed it on the postage scales in my office so give or take a couple of grams it should be correct.
Nice looking phone. Look delicate but is very strongly build(good quality).
I brought one about 10 days ago but never have the chance to use it yet as I have been away on a business trip to Beijing, China.(I brought with me my Nokia 8800 & a very nice looking China made mini PDA phone with me). I am quite excited to try out/play with the P300 when I am free at home tonight. I shall keep you guys posted on my opinion of the P300.
