Sony Ericsson Z300 Review

Sony Ericsson Z300a / Z300

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team




Overall the phone works fast – the menus are quite fast and there is no obnoxious waiting while using the phone. The display lights up fast on opening or at pressing a key, when the light has turned off, and the phone is ready for use. The sound through the speaker is loud and clear, but sadly there is no speakerphone for a conversation from a distance. The melodies are pleasant for the class and their count is not little, they are relatively loud, but you may miss a call in a noisy environment, since the vibration is not very strong.

The strength of the signal is under the medium and at places it loses the network, which is definitely uncomfortable and may lead to missing calls. The battery holds a lot, since it doesn't support much. With light usage it held for 4 days and it could go longer. The charging takes less than 2 hours.


The Z300 is trying to bring style, by rounded shapes in the design and a clamshell form with a comfortable round external display, in the lower class of telephones, but it fails because of the horrible keypad, which besides being badly light up is uncomfortable. The mediocre interface is comfortable to use, even with some strange and uncomfortable sides and menus. Having in mind the good battery life and the low price, it is a good phone, only if sold without commitment.
