    Introduction

    Most people think of a cellular phone just being a communications tool. But then there are the other people, people like me, who think that just about exactly the opposite. In my opinion, a cell phone is a gadget to play games, surf the internet, and show off with, as well as the occasional phone call or two.

    I've been through three different cell phones before I met up with the Sony Ericsson T300. I started out with a Motorola Startac, but I quickly threw it out after it broke in half. I then bought myself a Motorola v120c. I had no big problems with that one, but the lack of cool features such as games turned me off. I then switched to T-Mobile from Verizon Wireless, because T-Mobile offered a World Plan, letting me use my phone all around the world. When starting my plan, I chose the business-like Samsung Q105. Too bad that phone had almost no features. The only thing that really stood out with this phone was the included data cable to sync my phone with a PC. Otherwise, it was very bland.

    About six months into owning the Q105, I got fed up with it and sold it on eBay for $75. With that money, I bought a Sony Ericsson T300, also on eBay, brand new for just $145. It was money well spent.

    This is the first phone I've owned with such an extensive feature list. Of course, the most noticeable thing about this phone is the color screen, and in my opinion, the most useful and fun one too. But, there are plenty of other things that makes this phone worth writing about.

    Design

    This phone is considered the T68ís little brother. It is based on the same ďoperating systemĒ and has many of the same features. It is slightly bigger, and doesnít 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. Letís 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.
    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.

    Interface

    The cell phone interface is very similar to the T68.  It's very easy to use and I had no problems with it. I'll go through the menu of the phone, as well as describe each thing in the menus to give you a better understanding of the features of the phone.

    In my opinion, the main screen was very well done. On the bottom left is the signal strength. The bottom center displays the time, and the bottom right displays battery life. The top displays the cell phone carrierís name, and in my case, itís VoiceStream. When Infrared is activated, a little infrared icon shows up in the center right of the screen. The background image can be selected to whatever you want. There is 52 options pre-selected on the phone, but you can add more via optional CommuniCam Camera, Infrared, or using WAP.

    You can also activate a screensaver, but itís pretty much pointless. Itís basically an image that shows up on the screen after a button has not been pressed for 25 seconds. About 3 seconds after that picture is displayed, a digital clock turns on, saving battery life. There is no way to turn off the clock, making the screensaver pretty much pointless.

    Phone Book

    When the joystick key is pressed, the main menu opens up, which consists of nine different icons. The first one up is the phone book, which is pretty self explanatory. Here, you can add contacts, edit contacts, set-up personal rings and pictures, as well as call people from your address book. My favorite thing about the Phone Book is the personal pictures. With this feature, you can either use the optional CommuniCam camera for the phone or use WAP (you can upload your own images to a special Sony Ericsson account and retrieve them on your phone, but more on this later) to put special images for each person in your phone book. For example, if ďFriend XĒ calls, a picture of ďFriend XĒ will show up on the screen.

    Messages

    Next up is ďMessages.Ē Here, you can check your voicemail, POP3 or IMAP4 e-mail, read and send SMS/MMS messages, and chat online. Probably the coolest feature in this section is MMS, which is Multimedia Messaging Service. Instead of sending SMS messages, you can send pictures and animations to other cell phones. The only problem is that not too many phones support this just yet.

    Calls

    The next section is the ďCallsĒ section. Here, you can look at your Missed Calls list, all calls made and received, Manage Calls, which includes setting up Call Forwarding, and Call Waiting, and finally, your call timers, which lets you see how many minutes youíve used, as well as WAP data counters.

    Fun and Games

    The best section is the next one, the ďFun and GamesĒ section. This was the primary reason for me to buy this phone, and it was worth it! The section has 7 sections, Games, My Pictures, My Sounds, Themes, Composer, Sound Recorder, and CommuniCam. Iíll go through each one one by one.

    The games section is pretty self explanatory. The phone comes with five games, and are as follows: Erix, Alien Scum, Black Deal, Minigolf, and Ace of Spades.  All of the games were pretty fun, my favorites being Erix, Black Deal and Minigolf.

    My pictures include all of the pictures on the phone. My phone came with 54 installed pictures, two of them installed by T-Mobile, my cell phone provider. You can use these pictures as wallpaper or screensavers, as well as using them as images for a picture phonebook. If you have the CommuniCam Camera, any picture you take will show up here.

    My sounds are pretty much like My pictures. It consists of all the sounds on your phone, which include polyphonic rings, standard rings, and any sound recorded message you may have made. You can use any of these rings (except for the sound recorded ones) as your ringtone or customized phonebook ring.

    One of the cooler things on the phone is the Themes section. Here, you can set the theme of the phone, which changes pretty much everything, including the wallpaper, screensaver, ringtone, menu backgrounds etc. to a specific theme, and when the phone ships, it comes with five of them. Classical is the boring one, which is basically all white. The rest are all based on seasons, and are self explanatory. They are: Summer, Spring, Winter and Fall. They all look good and are all great for customizing your phone. You can also download and create new themes from the internet either using WAP or an infrared connection.

    Next up is the Composer. This one is cool, but pretty much pointless. You can make your own polyphonic rings here, but itís pretty hard to make a good one. Nevertheless, its fun to play around with.

    Number six is Sound Recorder, where you can record memos to yourself. In my opinion, itís another useless feature.

    The last one is the CommuniCam feature, where you can take pictures from an optional CommuniCam Camera. Unfortunately, I did not get a camera, so I was unable to use this feature.

     

    Settings

    Like in most phones, there is a setup section in the T300 menu. One thing thatís great about this setup menu is the profiles feature. Here, you can set up different profiles that have different settings, such as ringtones and wallpapers. You can also setup display settings, time and date, keypad and PIN locks, handsfree settings, the language (English, French or Spanish), and do a master reset. Thereís nothing too special in this section, but itís very useful.

    T-Zones or WAP Services

    Since I have T-Mobile, T-Mobile sets up the phone to be customized for their company, making this category called T-Zones, which is their internet service. On any other phone, the category will be called WAP services. Here, you can load up and use the internet on your phone. Itís pretty cool and different seeing everything in color if youíre moving from a B&W phone.

    Organizer

    Here you can somewhat organize your schedule, similar to a Palm Pilot. In this section youíll find an Eventís List, Alarms, Timer, Stopwatch and a Calculator. You can add events to the Eventís List, much like a to-do list. The rest of the features are pretty much self-explanatory. I donít use this section much, but it may be convenient for some people.

    Connect

    The 2nd to last icon is the connect icon, where you can set up all of the network things with your cell phone, including the Infrared port, the GSM network, and Data communications. The infrared port, like I said earlier is a way to connect your cell phone to computers that have an infrared port on it. My laptop does, but even after installing the software/drivers from Sony Ericsson, the infrared feature failed to work.  The rest of the things in this menu are advanced, and I am not going to go into them.

    My Shortcuts

    The final menu of this phone is the ďMy ShortcutsĒ menu. Here you can setup shortcuts to programs on the phone that you may use a lot, that may be deep down in the menus. Itís a pretty cool feature on the phone, but I donít use it much.

    Usability

    As I said before, the keys on the phone are very hard to press, and require a lot of force. On top of that, they are fairly small. Since I have small hands that is not a issue for me, but for people with big hands, this may be a serious problem.

    Audio quality was excellent from both sides. I could hear my party well, and they could hear me just fine, even in loud-noise situations, such as a mall. My only concern is that, like the T68, the maximum volume on the phone is just not loud enough, so it may be difficult for some people to hear.

    Battery time was fairly good on this phone, and excellent for any color phone, due to the digital clock screensaver. I got about 5 hours of talk time, and around 6 days of standby time, and that is with a lot of playing games and surfing the internet, about an hourís worth.

    As I said earlier, the phone features an infrared connection to connect to your PC to install new things on your phone, as well as to use as a modem for your laptop/PocketPC. Despite my attempts to connect my phone to my laptop to add a wallpaper, I failed. My computer would not recognize the T300. I did not test the phone for use as a modem, but if you are planning to use this feature often, I recommend going with the T68/T68i with Bluetooth connectivity.

    Sony Ericsson throws in a free hands-free set, but Iím not sure if this is only through T-Mobile, since the higher T68 model did not have one included. Nevertheless, the hands free set performed very well, and I could hear the party, and they could hear me. It also had a convenient button on it to end calls.

    Pros 

    • Color Screen
    • Low Price
    • Long Battery Life
    • Joystick
    • Games and Downloadable Ringtones/Wallpaper
    • Camera available
    • Infrared
    • Lots of Features

    Cons

    • No voice command
    • Small, hard to press keys

     

     

    Conclusion

    Itís pretty obvious here that I enjoyed using this phone, and despite itís minor issues, itís a fun, feature-packed cell phone to have. On top of that, its low price makes it appealing to almost everyone. The features on the phone surpass features that Iíve seen on much more expensive cell phones, such as my old Samsung Q105, which I bought for $200 with service activation. T-Mobile is offering a special deal that if you active a new service plan, for $100 you get the T300, as well as a free camera, that provides a great way to customize your phone even more. The polyphonic rings are awesome, and the wallpapers are pretty cool.

    Although I never got the infrared feature to work, it wasnít a big deal for me, considering I wasnít going to use it anyways. I was surprised to see that there was no voice command to do completely hands-free calling, but Iím happy with whatever keeps costs down. The small, hard to press keys may be an issue for some people, but it didnít affect me, so I canít complain too much.

    There were no serious problems with this phone, making it a great bet for anyone looking for a low-cost, feature packed color phone. This is the cheapest color phone to date, and it lookís like Sony Ericsson is doing the right thing.
