Performance:

One of the disadvantages of P3300 compared to X500 is that it uses a far slower 200 MHz processor.  Nevertheless in normal use it is quite sufficient but its delay is felt in operations such as calculation of routes when using GPS. Yet, the disadvantage is not so great as to tip the balance sharply in favor of X500. 

In direct comparison to other Pocket PC and standard phones, Artemis P3300 showed excellent results as regards talking. The full-functional PDA possibilities are not an obstacle to having full-functional phone ones, too.  The range force is very high and it showed excellent results during our testing.  The sound is very good when talking:  what you hear is strong and clear but a little shrill, and on the other side they hear you very strong, too, but quite realistically.

The speakerphone is usable from a small distance but it sounds quite unrealistically and even irritating.


Conclusion:

HTC P3300 Artemis is certainly a small phone but powerful and pleasant to use.  Its beautiful distinguished design includes a combination of WiFi and GPS and the multimedia player is supplemented by an FM stereo radio.  A great advantage is its easy use with one hand as well as the high quality workmanship typical of HTC, but its disadvantages are the relatively slow processor and the inconvenient card location. The lack of 3G support should also be pointed out.  In direct comparison to the competitive X500 our opinion is definitely in favor of P3300 thanks to small details, although X500 is with better specifications.

Pros

  • Small PPC with both GPS and WiFi
  • Trackball navigation, wheel and shortcuts allow for easy one-handed usage
  • Very good call quality

Cons

  • The processor should be faster for GPS device
  • Mediocre camera performance
