Sony Ericsson K300 is equipped with enough functions and options to satisfy the majority of the mobile phone users. The only weak aspect of its functional equipment is the small capacity of the phonebook. As for its size and weight, the phone is cutely small and comfortable. Phone's outlook is simple, but also elegant; the quality of the display is sufficient, controlling is relatively comfortable. If we add the reasonable price, that does not exceed 170 euros, there is no doubt the new Sony Ericsson model has extremely high chances to become the hit of the oncoming summer.

Screen visibility problem, weak vibrate mode

The screen is very difficult to see clearly outside in the sunlight. Also, the vibrate function is too weak to be noticeable if you get a call while you are walking around with it in your pocket.

This phone is great, I got it for my 16th birthday with fido service. PROS - Screen is clear and bright - Camera is satisfactory, better than others - The phone book can hold many numbers (510) - The sound is unbelievable, mp3 and polyphonic ringtones - The memory actually goes quite a long way even though its 12 mb - The reception is very good, I can even get reception in school CONS - The price is a little high, unless you buy it with a contract - You can''t turn the shutter sound off on the camera...it gets really annoying Overall this is a pretty great phone.
