After the excellent E250 all-in-one slider , Samsung is bringing cool to the under-5k mark with the new C300. The phone is just a little under 2cm thick, but otherwise fairly compact at under 10cm high and less than 5cm wide.
Modeled after the D500, the C300 is a very basic model, with the only frills being a 128x160, 65k color display and GPRS/MMS support. The phone has a basic WAP browser and Java MIDP support. There’s no support for MP3s or MP3 ringtones. The phone offers no connectivity options (no USB, no Bluetooth, no Infrared), so the only means of get anything into the phone is GPRS, but with 2MB of memory, there’s not much you can do anyway. The phone doesn’t have FM radio, which is rather unfortunate for a phone in this price range.
For around Rs. 3,800, the C300 offers a decent option for the 'style-over-substance' user, but the lack of FM will be the reason why people will opt for the X520 or the Motorola FLIP W220 over this one. If you're looking for a decent feature set, the Samsung E250 is still a much better option.
