      Disadvantages

      A good basic communication device

      Having previously written 'Cutesy Phone' I decided I'd write a review on the phone I owned before that, just as small and just as cutesy, hence the title. Though it is old, it is still available to buy in places like ebay, or amazon. This was the first mobile phone I ever owned, and I had it for five years, which in itself should say something about how good this phone is! So here is are the positives and negatives about the phone:

      The Look:

      As a fifteen year old at the time, as superficial as it might sound, it was extremely important to me to have something that I felt looked good. This was the only phone at the time that filled this criteria, and even now I still think it's the best looking phone out there. It is silver, very small, it is elegant and very chic. Although I would class it as a feminine phone, I think guys would look good using this phone too.

      The front part of the phone has a teeny screen that shows you the time or who is calling or if you've received a text message etc, but one of the things I loved about this screen was that when the phone was closed, it acts as a teeny mirror! I'm sure that would be appealing to girls out there, kind of doubles up as a teeny compact mirror, so would save space in your bag!

      Durability:

      I have dropped this phone countless times, and it has still worked. I had a sink filled with water, as you do, my phone fell in, dried it with a hair dryer, and it still worked. Though it did have a tiny water stain which had leaked into the screen and which you can see when you turn the phone on, but nevertheless it still works. It is a flip phone, and the flipping it open and closed gets very addictive, but it hasn't broken even though I've done that a billion times a day.

      Games:

      The phone has two games which are very addictive as well, and I miss these games on the newer phones. Honey Ball, a game of throwing a ball up to hit the bricks above. And Hamster Box, which is a puzzle type game, with a cute hamster who makes funny noises.

      Text Messaging and calling:

      Text messaging is easy and quick. You can use predictive text message or the normal typing out every letter, which is fairly easy, though the keys are small, so better for smaller fingers or those with nails. As an old phone it doesn't have much space capacity, and only holds about 50 messages. One of the things I didn't like was that when it reached its limit, it would tell me that a new message has come through, but the message wouldn't be there. Another negative I found was that over the years this capacity went down to about 43 messages for some reason, so that wasn't very helpful.

      Easy and straightforward to call people.

      Battery Life:

      Battery life was very good for the first 2 and a half years, then I had a spare battery which I used for the next 2 and a half years. I only had to charge it once a week if that, at the very beginning it was more like once every 10 days. But by the end of the battery life I had to charge it pretty much every day, hence out with the old phone and in with the new.

      Other positives:

      Beautiful colour screen. Good wallpaper, particularly liked the wallpaper with little fishies under water. It does have an alarm, which when it goes off a tiny clock image dancing about appears on the mini screen on the front of the phone. Good selection of ringtones.

      Other negatives:

      It does not have any special features being such an old phone, no camera, no internet, no video, no voice recorder.

      Conclusion:

      Overall we had a good five years together, and it's definitely something I'd recommend as a basic phone, so if you're not into the special features this is a great phone to have, otherwise its probably ideal for younger teenagers to be used as simply a stylish communication device.

      EXCELLENT MOBILE!!!!

      Hello to all those who are interested in mobiles, like me!!!!
      So, this is a very very good mobile which is full of features!!!!
      It has a large selection of ringtones and its sound quality is excellent.
      It's also got Infrared, which is very useful... especially nowadays!!
      Then, it is very small and extremely easy to use!!!
      The only things which are not that good about it are that it cannot take photos or record sounds and videos. But why would everyone need a mobile that can do such things?? That's a camera's job!!!!
      If you want to buy this mobile but you are not sure, please read this comment.
      I hope I convinced you.

      The samsung s300 is a very small and versatile phone packed full of features.
      one of the main ones is that it has predictive text in polish.
      I do quite a bit of texting to poland, so it is very usefull because i don`t have to enter words using ABC letter by letter.
      I have tried other phones and can`t find any other one which has polish language.
      The A300 has a few games on it which are not too bad, they include Bowling and midp man (Pac man) in the downloads section. And in the games section there is honey ball, which is a bit like the old fashioned game of breakout, and last but not least is hamster box which is quite difficult.
      I have tried many times to download new games via wap, but there are never any new ones available which is one down side to this phone.
      The phone has a good selection of ring tones with more available on cd supplied with phone.
      You also get a hook up cable to link phone with pc and download ringtones,wallpapers etc from supplied cd, also if you do a lot of texting from home you can link with pc and use key board instead of hey pad, which i found very usefull.
      The s300 has a very good and stong vibrate when on silent, especially good when in a pub or club, you can feel it vibrating in pocket no problem.
      On the whole the A300 is a very good choice of phone, as it is small, robust and can take a good battering, i have had mine for over a year now, it gets some serious stick and has never let me down, and i can highly recommend it.
