a fantastic phone it s features are great.ilove the design.performance exellent!!!!!!!
i bought this phone for my girlfriend. i was impressed with it but only initially.
when the phone started, i was dissapointed with its average screen quality. i have not seen such weak displays in any sony phones.i own motorola e398 and its screen quality is better than w300.
camera too is average but for me camera in a mobile is only additional feature.
it does not even plays fullscreen videos.
about the sound quality, its one of the best, no doubt. even with one external speaker it gives good sound. from the headphones it gives excellent sound. bass effects is more pronounced. bass is so high that with mega bass enabled its impossible to hear in full volume but still when its kept at one level down, sound is excellent. best i have heard so far.
"my shortcut" key which is present in W550 is missing in this phone.
battery life is also excellent.
3 days without charging with average use.
i had thought of buying this mobile. but now i am going to wait for rokr e2 to release. i think it will be a much better option.
Awesome mobile.. Its sleek n slim inspite of bein a flip phone.. Sound is great... U can listen to songs for the entire day with it...Interface is also good.. Only -ve feature is camera... It looks poor in phone.. after transferrin it to PC it is of the same quality as any other mobile with 1.3 MP cam.... feel rate might come down.. bought it on the first day when it was launched..so anyone interested go for it.. but be patient..in 3 mths time rate might come down..
@ Dreadnought the w300 doesn't have the exgangeable covers only the z530 has. see mobile-review.com for further info. :D
It is insane!!!!!!!!11
Rs.12500 for W300i... But W700i cost only Rs.13000. Only an addition of rs.500 for VGA to 2mp camera. isnt that W300i is overpriced at 12500.
bought it off ebay for $300 (includes s&h) and got it last monday. it's a cool phone if you are not too picky about the camera/video options and the sound quality is ok, but i'm not too picky about that either. i was able to upload 300+ songs with 20kbps in AAC format (with a 256MB memory card micro, which came with the phone btw).
it has some other features like voice recorder, games, radio, bluetooth, etc. i love this phone. i owned the LG CU320 for like a month(it was stolen) before buying this. i just like that it is a flip/clamshell phone so i don't accidentally press buttons, especially when i put my phone inside my pocket.
i have cingular and i just called them to fix the internet today and now it works. so i'm happy about that! i downloaded more themes from sonyericsson.com/fun.
i haven't quite tested out battery life yet. so far, i've had to charge it 2x since monday since i've been trying out all the options, especially bluetooth. i was able to transfer files through bluetooth, unlike the CU320. internet/bluetooth technologies on a phone really use up batteries though.
anyway, good phone for anyone too cheap to buy a separate mp3 player/iPod.
If you want a good clamshell, with good price, features and design, then why not go for the Nokia 6131 for example...?
Have just ordered this phone (T.Mobile), I am assuming it comes in black as per the picture. Does anyone know where to buy the exchangeable covers? It says on here that they are available but I can't see them anywhere :(
Am hoping this phone lives up to my expectations. I have had many many a phone over the year, currently own a K750i. I have to say, in my opinion the SE's are amazing phones. I am sacrificing the camera quality on the W300 for the clamshell design - why don't SE make nicer clamshells?! Back in the day before cameras and MP3 my other half had an amazing clamshell - Z something or other, but alas they can't seem to incorporate all the new features into one flip phone!
It's this or the W810 - amazing phone but fed up of boring look which is too similar to my current phone.....
Rahim: all walkman phones can average about 30 hours (not exact but somewhat true) but only while playing music and that too only in flight mode. This includes w300. Flight mode takes up less battery coz de phone function is switched off
I have got a question
if you look to the w800(i) its says if the phone is turn of you can play 30h of music but does this include evry walkman phone and duz it include w300 ??
please post the review about w300 , i am really intrested to buy that set but just waiting for the reivews from the gsmarena team. any other who has bought this set plz let us know about ur views. thanks
I received this phone today and really disappointed with it. Seemed really plastic and hardly much to it at all, very basic and only came with five ring tones. I've gone back to my good ole faithfull motorola till a phone comes along that knocks my socks off.lol... good luck to anyone who buys this phone.
well..its got only once speaker...but the sounds really good..sony walkman phs defy rock!!...jus got it for abt 11k...i like the ph its really cool ...the cams not the best but not bad at all..
this phone is same like rokr................as that of its release VGA cam..........256 mb card included
the phone is not as loud as w550i and w800i
rokr sounds coooooooooooooooooooooooool
but se is the king of speakers
rokr doesnot have radio
and it doesnt have Itunes
i used rokr
itunes is best media player
black rokr is cool
this phone roxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
i'll get it or E2 rokr which has the loudest sound ever
