Sony Ericsson T303 is a good enough attempt to fill in the low-end portfolio of the company. We can't frown at the modest, yet nice looking and compact phone, with quality finish and reasonable functionality. Design the undoubted highlight, Sony Ericsson T303 offers balanced performance for its class with Bluetooth, stereo FM radio, Smart search and TrackID.

We cannot overlook its major weakness, storage. The limited built-in memory and no card slot make the MP3 and the radio recording capabilities useless. We could also go on about a tad better display resolution and better imaging quality. The lack of PC synchronization is another potential downer.

By the way, it's easy to get carried away and that would be unfair to the affordable and unassuming T303. Overall, Sony Ericsson T303 is a tempting low-ender - it's sexy, it's mini, it makes sense.

Stupidest phone ever

It is a slider phone and someone thought it would be smart to make the screen a mirror. So when it's sunny outside, you can not see the screen no matter what you do. When I call in to complain, everyone says that all phones are hard to see on a sunny day. That's true, but this phone is IMPOSSIBLE to see. You basically can't use it if it's too bright out. When I'm in my car on a sunny day, I have to close my sun roof and shade the phone to see it. At the beach, I have to put my towel over my head and use my phone under that cover. On the lift at the ski hill, the reflection of light off the snow is too bright and I can't use it. It's ridiculous. I hope they're not making it anymore because it's beyond frustrating. It's a joke that they sell this phone for $150.00. Less

Sucky cellphone

You shouldn't buy this phone. I have it since 1 year. The worst thing of it is when I receive a call and I press on the answer button, it closes by itself, even if the battery is full, so I miss a lot of calls. It does that almost 1 time out of 5. Plus it really freeze a lot at any moment. The camera...More

Almost good

The phone looks nice but the main problem is the lack of memory. It's sold as an mp3 / camera-phone but it only has 8MB and no memory slot. You can probably squeeze in 2 songs, then what? The funny thing is that you could create playlists, for 2 songs.. That's smart. :P

I had such badluck with this phone. It looks cool and everything, but if you are someone who like listening to your music this phone is not for you. This is my second Sony Ericson T303 and it's giving me the same problem. When you browse on the internet it freezes after a while, and with my sencond phone I set the alarm on the 3rd day and it freezes again. I dont know if it's just a common problem with this phone, but I definetaly dont want it anymore. Less
