The Motorola RAZR V3 is targeted towards people who want a more "flashy" fassion phone and like the clamshell form factor.
Compared to the V3, the K300:
- has a cheaper and smaller display (CSTN, not TFT)
- can record video as well as play video (V3 can only play video)
- has 50 hrs more standby time
- 4x digital zoom (V3 has none)
- 10-12 MB memory. V3 has 5 MB memory
- 40 tones polyphony compared to 24 for V3
- has IR-port but no bluetooth (V3 has bluetooth but no IR port)
- Integrated file manager
- MP3 player
- Users' profiles
- Musical composer, MusicDJ
- Themes for changing the interface, several themes are preinstalled include not only wall-papers, but sounds and graphical elements of the interface
- Dictaphone(Limited only with free memory).
- also has recurrent alarm clock (as well as plain alarm clock)
- Photo album (My Pictures) - a possibility to set extra pictures , receiving pictures from a PC or a camera
Games - in 3D as well as 2D.
Again.... the K300 main attractiveness lies in that is has so many features for it's price. If you like the V3 design and want to pay for it, by all means go for it!
But then again, Sony Ericsson K300 is not competing against Samsung e720 which is in a complete different price segment with megapixel camera, 90 MB memory, TFT display and Bluetooth.
The Sony Ericsson K300 is targeted towards users who want a simple camera phone which is easy to use and presents a lot of value for money. For more advanced users there are other phones to look at.
some friend of mine wanted this phone, but believe me: compared to the samsung e720 its nothing!
that is because of the display... the photo is the same except it will look better on k700 because of the better (TFT) display, but if u transfer photos from both phones to PC, you'll find out that they are the same... colnagoguy, correct me if i'm wrong, i don't really have any of these phones, so i'm not really 100% sure...
i noticed that the specks for the k700 and the camera on the k700 and the k300 are the same, but i took a look at the display of both phones(when u r about to take pic)and it seems as if the k700 camera is better, is this so or is it that the k700 as a better screen display?
Main differences between k300 and k500 are:
- K500 has other design than K300; K500 is larger mainly due to larger display.
- K500 has bigger display
- K500 has better display technology, TFT (same as T630 - brighter, clearer). K300 has cheaper display technology, CSTN (same as T610)
- K500 has lid to protect camera
- K500 has antenna connector on back so you can use car antenna.
I agree with your daughter, since the Nokia 6170 has a TFT display ...
Please observe that K300 is the cheapest Sony Ericsson camera phone. K500 has a display equivalent to Nokias, but the higher up one climbs the price ladder, the better the displays become. The K750 and W800 have very impressive displays. Check these phones!
Also, as far as I understand the Nokia 6170
- cannot record video (only play),
- has only 2,3 mb memory while K300 has 10-12 mb,
- is a complete different form factor (clam shell)
- is much more expensive
Thanks for the information on the site for finding a user manual.. I did as you suggested and got the manual. I was pleased before, now that I know more about, and how to use the phone, I am even more pleased with it. I have also read your responses to other queries and found them very informative. Keep the good work up.. My daughter likes the phone but thinks the display is no way as good as the Nokia 6170. She likes Sony and was wondering whether Sony has a phone with as good a display as the Nokia 6170
Except that on J300 one has exchangable covers - not so on K300.
The J300 does not have an infrared port either; K300 does.
The software for connecting the phone to PC is available on the Sony Ericsson site. It is called SE File Manager & is a 33 MB file.
Also u need to install the software for the USB cable which is available from SE site
The phone has no USB port. THe USB cable has a phone connector on 1 end & a USB connector for the PC at the other end
I need a software for k300 phone that connects my phone with the PC. I have USB data cable and it is working properly but a software to communicate my phone with the PC is needed. Please help me that how and where from i can have software. I have already tried sony ericsson site but unable to find the right software.
if you read further down you can see this is one of the most asked questions. The answer is:
"In some markets it's not possible to turn off the camera sound due to legal requirements (avoidance of peek photos)".
K300i is cheap and wonderfull than the other like nokia but have a problem: u can not silent the camera shut
I would recommend you to go to your operator's site (the one you pay your mobile phone bills to) and look there. If you still have problems I would recommend you to phone up your operator's helpdesk. For every mms, wap or email you send your operator will be making money, so it is in your operator's interest to help you!
I was wondering if there is another way to configure the WAP, GPRS and E-mail for my K-300. I checked in Sonyericsson.com but, since I am from Nicaragua, in Central America, it does not figures in the suport screem. Wondering if you culd help me out, Thanks!
you haved to hold the camera still or the picture deosn't come out perfect and clear
Hi sanya, well i wud recommend K300i coz its a very gud phone. and besides tht, the camera of k300i is far better. u maybe confused about the display of the image on mobile but when u transfer it on PC, believe me the result is very good. u can chck it in the pictures given on this site(click on the pic of mobile on ur left). k300i can make video of about half an hour but 3220 has got no video. k300i has got MP3 player but 3220 don't hav 1. k300i has got infrared tht lets u to trasfer data from nd to the PC easily. 3220 don't has 1. nd abt th display. well its also good. nd u can get k300i cheaper than 3220. its the best phone as far as i can say. and i'm also going 2 buy 1 in 3,4 dayz.
