The W300i is an addition to Sony Ericsson’s line of Walkman phones. The phone has been designed with less-expensive features to make it easier for US carriers to pick it up. These include essentials such as organizers, text and multimedia messaging, voice recorders etc. There are also a good number of business-friendly tools including full Bluetooth, email, a web browser, PC syncing, USB support and an RSS newsreader. In contrast to high-end models of the Walkman series, the W300i is equipped with a less powerful VGA camera. It offers limited settings like balance and resolution options and a 4X digital zoom. However, there’s a dedicated media player which resembles the ones in other models of the series. It provides plenty of options including an equalizer, mega bass and also lets users organize their music.

According to test results at CNET, the W300i’s call quality is remarkable. Volume and clarity were both high, while signal reception was well above average as there was no static or interference. The speakerphone was disappointing but sounded decent overall. The camera is very poor however, as images and videos hardly look acceptable. Though it is a VGA camera, it still performs sub-par as most of the shots are blurry and colors look faded. The included browser also tends to disappoint. It struggles to load complicated pages and when it does, the low-res display makes sites look unimpressive. But the phone really excels when it comes to music. The inbuilt speakers are simply outstanding and they produce excellent audio even in high volumes. On the whole, the W300i is perfect for you if you want a cheap multimedia handset that provides great value for the price tag.
