Compare C300 Black Deals

The Samsung C300 in dramatic black is a comfortably sized (92 x 44 x 18.8 mm) and light (94g) handset with a slide-out keypad, ideally suitable for a first-time user or perhaps as a spare. The 1.7-inch screen displays up to seven lines of text at modest resolution (128 x 160 pixels). Messaging options – SMS, EMS and MMS are available via GPRS, so speeds are likely to be relatively slow compared to an EDGE- or 3G–enabled device. The internet browser is the older WAP 1.2, so nothing fancy but quite capable of downloading games.

As a dual-band phone, it could feasibly be used in Europe, too, depending on the operator. There is no camera, music player or radio, but the C300 is primarily meant for calls and messaging. Utilities include voice memo, predictive text, hands-free, caller ID, vibration alert and call records.

A uTrack feature can help recover the phone if it is lost or stolen by alerting you of the its location. Internal memory is fixed at 2 Mbytes – there is no card slot.

Battery life is rated at 7.6 hours’ talk time or 493 hours on standby from a full charge.
