it's my phone's first month since i bought it here in php.
the joystick: still in good condition, just handle it with care so that it wont make failures.
and abt the speaker i have stated that time:
the speaker produces craking sound because the speaker has no bass but the earphones. you can hear. this situation is usually occur when you have put a song with a very high bass. WAV files are also supported in phone but is not advisable to play cause it sounds cracking also another is that it eats too much memory so you prefer to mp3 that has a better sound quality in small size.
for those who wants to install mp3s even the phone has only 12MB ram,
compress the mp3 at least 16-18kbps using musicmatch (convert files in the menu at the top) the quality is till good in the speaker but you can barely hear it in the earphone at better quality.
K300 has all i need at this generation. the only drawback is the memory but still enough for storage of anything! i really love it!
yes,You can zoom upto 4X.
yes u can type fast sms.
I bet u this is a best beginers multimedia phone.Go buy it :)
To k300i fan,
There is no option for sending java through ir, becoz i think copyright issues. But u can copy them in PC using cable or ir port.
hello..i'm going to buy a cellphone and i'm thinking to sony ericsson k300.but first, i'd like to know if u can write fast sms, cause this is my hobby..and i don't like waiting every letter to come.with the phone i have now,if i want to write 2 letters on the same button, i don't have to wait.i can do it fast.is it the same situation on k300?please someone tell me.send an e-mail or something.thx
I've another link to get java games.
It's a portuguese site.
You can get almost 150 games, including the game " extreme air snowboarding 3d".
BUT , you need to register, it's free.
how can I send a Java app from k300i through IR to another phone?
when I select an app it doesn't have this option :(

zedge.no ( needs registration for free)
now guyz start the k300 game revolution
those sites also provides softwares for our k300.
well said cezar, my opininions are same. K300 has a good speaker but at the same time it needs good care & protection from rash usage. Joystick is good too, only we should learn to use it smooth n softly. Then only it gives best results and I think K300 joystick is better than any higher class Nokia phones.
for those complaining abt the joystick and the speaker this is what i observed.
joystick can be your worst hindrance for your phone if you persist to use it without proper discipline of taking care of it. i mean i you use your joystick very hard. another is the manufactuing of the product do you know only few of you does complains abt that issue? because here in the php, we all got k700,k300,k500 which has joystick as navigation key. but no one complains abt it except the only who presses hard on it's joystick making it loose to key in. so stop insisting that joystick is caused by dust or anything like that.
speaker of the k300 is good and for some complaining the speaker it's because of the manufacture of the product is not good here on your location. again here in the php, ther is no issue abt that. only the people that lacks discipline easily damages their own phone and SE has no responsibility of your faults...
so please. stop blaming SE for your own faults. handle your phone just like your bestfriends. use with care!
hey dude can any one ask me how can i make my joystick function well. it is very hard to navigate specially when reading text messages. help
My first phone and I fell in love. Fits perfectly in my palm, great display, easy to use .... but doesn't respond well after a spin in the washing machine :-( My second phone will be the K300.
Hi friends !! This is indeed a excellent phone. It has so many feaures with its cute small design.
If properly used camera takes excellent images. Some tips for good photos on K300 which I found good.
**Don't shake ur hand when pressing capture button, hold still.
** Always start camera with side button on standby mode. which gives good speed to camera.
** Don't use cam if images moving slowly. Which blurres the images and video. Switch off and restart the phone to get speed in movement.
** Use shortcut buttons when taking pictures... press 1 for changing resolution, 2 for night mode, 3 for effects, 4 for timer.
** Using night mode not good some time, it gives grainy image..Avoid using it, utilise the availabe light.
** 640X480 is good for PC view. For wall papers use smallest resolution which will save memory.
** Turning silent mode will turn off the camera sound (Not all phones,depends on firmaware)
** Small resolution for video is good
Hope these tips helps u..
I think it's a very good phone. It has many functions which until now could only be found in a business phone, much more expensive. What i don't like is the fact that the camera is not protected. I was a Nokia fan until recently, but the K 300i impressed me. I hope it will continue to impress me.
Yeah,you're right that SE got problems with joysticks and maybe with cams(with what I don't fully agree),but except of that the phone is great.I'm impressed
i have this phone for almost a week, and i think it's a very good phone for the price. The camera is not perfect but it's ok. I'm very happy with this phone.
The problem is, it's speaker. there are 3 cases in my friends that they had K300i and then it's speaker got silent. The joystick is a universal problem of SE.
just like peter chua, im impressed to my phone k300i.
im here in philippines and all i want to say is that SE is now very popular in this country but still nokia is most in it's no. of users.
before i want to buy a 3220 because k300i is too expensive for my budget but good thing my parents helped me and give me more money just to buy that phone and no disappointed even though 3220 has a TFT LCD, k300i has everything i needed except radio and the major drawback is the LCD: STN but enough to view pictures clearly. aside from that, 3220 has only 2.5MB memory while k300i has 12Mb which is enough for me. my video recorder exceeds up to 30 minutes in 12Mb memory in 128x96 pixel size and 10-12minutes in 176x144 pixels. i can hold Mp3s for much if i compress that using musicmatch. even though it is low quality, still the music is still very good in the speaker and headset but a bit lower in it's volume due to the compression, i compress it up to 500-600kb and my phone can contain 20-24 mp3s. nice right?
my k300 exceeds everything i needed and it's camera is better than 6600, 6230 and 6020 nokias i've tested that before.
As i know SE produced k310 which is also cheap! yepee! nice SE! Nice!
