Excerpt: THIS IS MY THIRD ONE TO OWN. STILL CAN'T GET IT RIGHT. PROS CUTE AND SMALL. CONS POOR SOUND. POOR SPEAKER QUALITY. LOTS OF DROP CALLS. BATTERY LIFE TOO SHORT. AFTER 20 MINUTES OF TALKING BATTERY GOES DOWN. OVER ALL BAD RECEPTION.
Excerpt: I love this phone from upgrading from the sanyo 8200 to this model its so much better. I love the speaker phone and the camera. The things that I don't really like is the fact that if you are in a loud setting such as work or in a store sometimes its very hard to hear the phone go off even if its on the highest volume of ringer.
Excerpt: Why do I rate this phone zero? Because the main purpose of a phone is to talk to people right? Well, the sound quality (speakerphone or just talking normal) is absolutely horrible.
I have made about 20 calls in a couple of days to various friends and family. I have to keep asking them to repeat themselves because every sound that comes through this phone sounds like they are talking through a box and their words are not clear at all.
Excerpt: Just purchased this phone yesterday. Needed a phone that could double as a music player.
Pros: Purchased Sirius for my music needs and it works and sounds great. Handset is same size as the 8200, which is a good phone also.
Speed in accessing web page/Vision homepage, is the fastest I have seen yet. Vibrating mode is very strong, which for me is Very important. Speaker is better than 8200 when using speakerphone.
Cons: Camera is not as good as 8200.
Excerpt: Pro: Good battery life, good reception
Cons: Not very rugged - easily damaged
Poor received sound
I've had cell phones since 1987, and have been using my MM-8300 for about 4 months. The MM-8300 does not seem to have the usual durability expected from a cell-phone, as ts LCD has already began developing internal cracks (with 60% of the view now lost) even though the entire case is without a blemish.
Excerpt: A week ago I went to the Sprint store to pick a phone for my girlfriend. I was going to get the 8200 but decided to wait for the 8300 to surprise her. I got there on Monday of this week (7/11) and picked up a red one for her. She absolutely loved it. The color is very eye catching. I looked very closely, and it does not have crystal like flakes like the 8200. I wanted to keep it for myself but that would not be fair.
Excerpt: communications devise wise, its better then most other sprint phone. had the samsung a920, its great for the graphics and tv stuff, but power vision is worthless because the screen is too small to be meaningful and be excited about and it cost too much also.
