Who, 13 Aug 2009Wow! That's quite a report. Thanks!
You say the battery is a lil disappointing. What's your... more@who
Thanks for your comments.
1) Re: the battery - there are two aspects to it:
(a) The duration from fullcharge condition to the point till low battery signal comes up
(b) The battery meter and how the levels are decreasing on a daily basis
For a) above,
Iam using this phone as an addl phone so not many calls or SMS (hardly 2-3 calls of /3 mins daily avg. Also camera and blue tooth are used only for testing purpose. And avg 30 to 40mins of music and Radio listening combined in each cycle
On the 1st charging cycle I kept it power off during the night. And the charge lasted till low bat signal for 4.5 days approx. Note my screen brightness is set at min and keypad lights set to activate after 6 pm.
Now the latest cycle of charging happened on Tue morning and the meter has reached the last 2 level from Thu noon (with no outgoing call, some 4 missed calls and some 20-25mins of music,no camera usage, and dropped to the last level by thursday eve (with some addl 20mins of mp3/radio listening ). It got depleted completely by Fridy aftn - I didn't switch it off in this cycle.
In the previous cycle I charged it on Sat afternoon, usage worth mentioning are a 50 min long conversation and and some 5 snaps on the camera and it got depleted by Tuesday early morning.
For the b) above , it seems the meter is not linear, the first 3 levels get depleted very quickly and the last 2 levels tends to hold on some what longer.
I hope now this will clarify my point and due to sparing useage cudnot go beyond 5-6 charging cycles.
2) Yes..I got 1 gb microsd card pre inserted in the phone, one data cable (refer to my earlier post in the para where I discussed about the 150-300v power cord) free with the package. It may be noted that there are 2 diff retail boxes available- one says s3310 but no card included. The other box says "metro" and includes the card. So the contents printed on the retail box needs to be checked before purchasing
3) Additional observation if you are connected to the USB of a computer, you cannot make call.

Awsome phone definetely value for money..Im really pleased to see so many features at its price..
Hi,everybody I recently brought this phone.It's got great camera quality,supreb sound clarity and i must add it's has EXCELLENT EAR PHONES budled with it...
battery is a bit tacky though not giving the specified backup.
None the less i would recommend that with a budget off 5500 this would be a perfect bargain..
SnM, 12 Aug 2009Hi,
I hv been using this metro 3310 phone for 3 wks nw. Can't compare with 5130XM as I hvn'tu... moreWow! That's quite a report. Thanks!
You say the battery is a lil disappointing. What's your average daily usage and how often do you have to charge it?
You also say you bought it 3 weeks ago and will check if battery capacity will improve after 10-12 charge cycles - does that mean you haven't reached that many charge cycles in 3 whole weeks? :)
Did you get an USB cable along with the phone?
Loved your analysis of the port and the ergo disadvatage.
This phone is great.all round i will give 8/10. i just wanted to know can we store messages in phone instead of sim card. i searched every where but i didn't get any option.
Thanks in advance
