Compare K330 Deals

The Sony Ericsson K330 is the one of the lowest specification mobiles currently on the market, but also one of the cheapest. It makes phone calls and sends texts – job done! It is compact and slim (100 x 45 x 12 mm) and light at only 75g: ideal for a spare or first phone. It is dual-band GSM, so best keep it within the UK.

It has a camera - just about – a VGA with 0.3 megapixels so maybe ok for the odd snap, but forget the video. The display is only 128 x 160 pixels, but then it’s not trying to show spreadsheet attachments. It claims GPRS-based internet capability using the WAP 2.0 standard interface and, for short-range wireless data transfer with compatible devices, there is Bluetooth. It supports SMS, of course, but also MMS – not that the picture results will be much to write home about.

Other functions include vibration alert, animated wallpaper, java games, some personal organiser functions and, bizarrely, a Health Mate calorie counter.

Internal memory is 10 Mbytes – but then, what is there realistically to store? Battery life is rated at seven hours or 300 hours on standby from a full charge. Best to play to its strengths: phone calls, texts and a low price tag.
