    Design

    This phone is considered the T68’s little brother. It is based on the same “operating system” and has many of the same features. It is slightly bigger, and doesn’t have some of the advanced features the T68 has such as Bluetooth, but it also costs around $150 less. One thing that is noticeably different between the two phones is the design. Let’s take a detailed look into the design of the T300.

    There are three different colors available for the T300; Icy Blue, Midnight Red, and Mystical Green. My phone came with Mystical Green, but it looked so much like black unless the phone was under direct light, I decided to two more faceplates, red and blue (not the Sony Ericsson faceplates, but T-Mobile faceplates, different from the Sony Ericsson colors). This improved the overall look of the phone a great deal.

    This is the blue faceplate I got from T-Mobile. It does 
not come with the phone. Here's a picture of the phone without any faceplate.

    The phone itself has a very interesting look to it, and I personally like it. However, a lot of my friends don't like the design, making it really up to you.  Like the T68, the T300 has a rubbery back to it, making it comfortable to hold. It's also the perfect size for an average person's hand, making it very convenient.

    A feature on the T300 that most cell phones don't have these days is a joystick. The joystick is essentially the navigation tool for the cell phone menu's, and was very well designed. In my opinion, it had the perfect sensitivity, but was a bit hard to push the joystick down, and occasionally I would press it at an angle instead of straight down.

    On the top right, there's a small infrared port to connect the cell phone to a computer wirelessly, as long as they have a infrared port. Most desktops don't have one, but many laptops do. If you don't, but you want to use the infrared feature, you can buy a infrared USB adapter for around $15 online.

    On the top left, there's a small button that goes up or down, and can be used to scroll through menus or websites, and to change the volume of a phone conversation or ring signal.

    The only problem that I found with the design were the keys. They are fairly hard to press, and that can get annoying. Nothing too serious, but something Sony Ericsson could improve.
