The Samsung SPH-M300 has an adorable oval shape, and though it’s small it comes with a set of features people actually use.

Measuring 3.5”x1.9”x0.7” and weighing only 2.6 ounces, the M300 comes in a choice of dark silver or misty-rose red (Any color that has more than two words makes me plum fiery purple green with anger!)

The 1” external screen is a modest 96x96 pixel resolution and show the time, date, battery life, signal strength and caller ID. Inside you’ll find a 2” 128x160 pixel resolution screen and you can change the font size, color, screensaver and backlighting. The backlight keypad is a flush, lacquered and without spaces between the keys, however typing is actually easy.

The M300 is deceptive. Though small and cute, it allows you to text, send multimedia messages, email, instant message via AOL, Yahoo and MSN, and comes with integrated Bluetooth. Additional features include speakerphone, a 299 contact phone book, countdown timer, alarm, and calculator and a talk time of up to 192 minutes.

Unfortunately, the VGA camera produces subpar pictures and if a good camera is important to you, you may want to check out the Samsung M500.

Has high-end looks without costing a high-end price

from MobileBurn (over 7 years ago)

Shortcomings aside, Sprint's stylish Samsung M300 has high-end looks without costing a high-end price. Its sleek design definitely disguises itself from looking like an entry level handset. The lightweight and compact M300 delivers great handsfree options for users such as Bluetooth and voice dialing,... More

HORRIBLE!!!

(over 4 years ago)

Okay so I'm going to start off talking about how I had my Samsung M510 (AMAZING PHONE) for 2 years from Bell and today I took it to get repairs. So then they gave me a Samsung M300 for a replacement and I knew right away it'd be the worst phone ever. Somebody I knew had it and it sucks! I... More

(over 4 years ago)

i have had this phone for three years now and have dropped it many many times. i have had no problems with it and as i got it from pc mobile its pretty cheap. the battery lasts a really long time if you are just texting (three days about) and lasts two days (approx.) if you are calling people. yeah id... More

Not bad for free, but . . . .

from Amazon (over 4 years ago)

I got mine for free from Sprint as a loyalty reward, and now I am using it as my normal phone is lost->stolen and my new-to-me replacement phone has not shipped in yet. Sprint used to include the Phone as Modem feature in the data plan (Power Vision), but then they devalued the plan by making PAM... More

(over 5 years ago)

blood pressure is rising just thinking about it...

(over 5 years ago)

I think I paid about $30 with a ridiculously long contract for this phone, b/c I didn't need a lot of features and it was one of the cheap ones. As others have said, don't shave a couple of years off of your life expectancy just to get a simple cheap phone. I have dealt with the same thing... More

wouldn't recommend for texting

(over 5 years ago)

When my phone died, i bought the cheapest phone I could buy to ride out the remainder of my contract with Bell. I have experienced very similar glitches as one of the posters mentioned. Text messaging is a HUGE problem for me, as the T9 will often spell out randoms things that aren't even words!... More
