The "1-Minute" Review
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.
