Pleasantly surprised by this phone, although for design I'm not keen on the navi key, I prefer separate buttons for browsing menus. Pretty good functionality, connected to the computer effortlessly and plays mp3's I have sent to it. I am pleased with the 10meg internal memory for being a "budget" phone. The camera is pretty decent, but if I want good pics I'll use the digital camera for that. My previous model was a V220 motorola which went bad after a few days, so I exchanged for this handset.... I'm a happy guy now!
i am from india last week i have purchased the new Sony Ericsson K300i.
first of all it does not have any LCD contrast adjustment, cam is not good, very dull picture, ringtones are useless, u can buy a stupid phone for only its cheap price.
all i say please dont buy this phone.
I just bought this phone a few days back and I absolutely love it. The camera's absolutely great for both still & video. The menu's are clean and crisp and the icons are really nice. I just have one complaint(problem?) with the k300. The infra-red doesnt seem to be working or I must be doing something wrong. Can someone help me out? Apart from this I love the phone!
I had a samsung E700 before and it made me hate that phone. Before samsung I had a nokia and I paid too much to have it. This is the first time I bought sony-ericsson and I think it is the best. Post modern design, low profile, good and easy menu, super price. Nokia is very expensive and its latest models are big and ugly.Keep on SE!
I think that this phone is very good for this price. In my country Romania it's 100 EURO
its is a good phone but its dont support mpeg4,wav,3d java playback and k500 support that.
I think that k300i is the best for its price.Of course, you can spend 300$ or more for a better camera or bigger memory, but...is this gonna make you a better person? I love my k300i, 'cause it is a honest phone.
I'm really satisfied with this handy. It has evrything i need. Spent a long time searching for it.
the cable conection should have come within, and it's expensive to buy it.
the screen is bad but not as bad as the 4k nokias it is 128 x 128 tho......
the cam for still pics sux cauz if u move the fone slightly also while takin the pic it comes a lil blurry....for vids the cam is simply awsome and it has an unlimited optinion allowing u to rec till u eat up all of memory tthats like about 20 mins of recording at low rez.. i got the fone for 6.5k indian Rs from singapore for that much i think its worth it ....i say pay lil more n get a k700i its cheap now ;) also the FLASH NOISE F**CKING SUX and u cant put it off :) how am i to become a cam vouyer now eh ?
came across another problem... in case u got low coverage from ur service provider in ur area usin a nokia for instance (i had a nokia 3315 where i had coverage of 1 to 2 bars on the signal indicator) you are gonna hate this fone as u wont get coverage 90% o the time. The fone goes into a state called Emergency calls only. If anyone knows a method to get around this (other than changing my service provider lemme know) (on the 3315 used a code *3370# to get more powerful signal.) thanks!
poor menu process response and screen is not very clear.. it looks like mono color screen, price wise,it's too close to k500... if you wanna buy it.. forget it and spend few money to get calmshell & stylish k500i phone... it'll rock you.. :)
the SonyEricsson T635 has camera and bluetooth while K300 has VideoCam and no bluetooth.Now you have to decide on what you can sacrifice; videocam or bluetooth !
i got this phone about a month ago, and i just got the DCU-11 data cable, everything installs fine....except the actual phone...anyone got drivers for the K300i ??
stu (please email me as i prob wont check back here)
i purchased this fone like two days ago but a bit dissapointed as it didnt come wit any data cables.
can somebody tell me how bad the display really is? is it even worse than 4k 128x128 nokia screens?
i think a non-TFT(STN) display will lead to better battery life.
can anybody plz tell me does it have infrared or not???plz guyz tell me as i have to buy this set
