Reviews summary

5.4/10AVG.
RATING
Based on 108 reviews

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!)

Show more

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

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, and even offers dual color displays. Even with its average battery life and poor viewing options for photos, I still give the Samsung M300 a "Recommended" rating.

The Samsung M300 measures 91mm x 48mm x 18mm (3.6" x 1.9" x 0.7") and weighs 85g (3oz). The manufacturer rated talk time... Full review

This was my first cell phone ever, a hand me down from my parents in 2008. Good times. Simpler times.

HORRIBLE!!!

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.

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 got home, charged it, and started to use it. Let me say this, texting is TERRIBLE with this phone. If you want to use T9 and put in "don't" it won't do it. It'll put "don1" before the proper way. Texting is really slow too. I mean, I'm a fast texter but even when I text slow it messes up and doesn't add the letter I typed. The internet is a complete MESS. I wanted to use facebook and it kept taking me back to the log in page after I entered my information. Msn Mobile doesn't work on it either. I'm completely disappointed that I have to wait 4-6 weeks to find out if my other phone is repaired or not. I'm definitely going to complain about the Samsung M300 and tell them I'm not paying for internet when it doesn't even work! Don't get this phone!!! It's worthless. Less

this phone is great

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 like a new phone, but this one will probably last me another few years. i would definately reccomend this phone for a first time phone as it is very easy to type on and is as i said durable. pc has great prices. k. think im done........ now. Less

Agreed! It actually sucks in comparison with current phones, as far as features (no removable SD card, texting is super slow) but the phone itself is very durable. I don't know how many times I've dropped it and it's fallen apart but it still keeps working! In fact, I had to switch my newer phone over to this one today because the screen on my new one smashed. The screen on this one is super durable. So while it isn't the greatest phone, it's an old reliable.

I too have had this phone for about 3 years. I too have dropped it many times and it never misses a beat. This is not a smart phone I don't use the internet at all on it I text and talk and it's great for that.

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 a big extra charge deal. If you can find the service code to turn off NAI, you can PAM, but purportedly they are now unique to the phone. Older phones are likely more useful for free PAM. As a phone it is OK, as a camera it is very basic, and as a web browser it is almost useless. You can download Opera Mini, if you are desperate for a little better browser. On Bluetooth, the only profile that came up for my dongle was DUN, no file transfer, and the phone did not come with a data cable, if there is one. Less

i like it

it is a good phone the picture qualitly is not bad but if u need a temporary phone it \is i guess ok

What program if any would I need? Sprint tells me they cannot do that for me, to take them off, then e-mail to me....! Shouldn't they be able to save them on a disc & give it to me??? And this is on a business account... I had all my contacts already moved to a non-camera phone. Last time there was no problem moving anything from 1 phone to another. Less

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 that others have mentioned, like the mysterious deletion of texts when you press 'back' once or more, the random dropped calls in the middle of the city, having others complain about me not answering the phone... I decided I'd take it in to the store I bought it from to have it fixed, as I bought an extended warranty (on the advice of the salesperson...sales tactic or warning..?) and I figured this was a defect. I got the phone back in 3 weeks, tested the text and it erased the messages twice and the next 2 times it didn't. I've trained myself to avoid texting nearly altogether b/c of my frustration, but so far no more issues with texting. However, I still get dropped calls, no reception in otherwise easily receivable locations, and general muscle cramping from the shear frustration I get from this phone. Trust me, stay away!! I'm not a blackberry craver, I just wanted a phone that if I pressed buttons I'd get a person on the other end, and for texting every so often. I hardly use my plan anymore b/c of this phone. Only upside, battery life is okay (though not extraordinary). Less

Pro: Can handle being dropped from high up and on hard surfaces Con: Slow web connenction software absolite need seperate items to put pics on PC bad photo resolution freezes bad in general Using experience: 45 months Well for me this phone is just awful. I cant get a new thanks to the locked in contract. I've gone through three of things in less than a year! I never drop them but I text alot. So this phone cant handle alot of texting. If i write a long text and make one little typo and try to erase it, it deletes the entire text. Awful phone DO NOT BUY IT there are much better phones avaiable for cheaper. Less
