Samsung F300 review: A phone like no other

21 May 2007
The famous South Korean manufacturer has stopped being afraid of making experiments. Once it used to only make silver clamshells. Today, however, the situation has changed significantly. Samsung already has a fancy portfolio including several new, very untraditional models. One such phone is Samsung Ultra Music F300 of the Ultra Special line up.

i don't know why people keep forcing themselves to talk bad about this phone. FYI, no one forced you to have this. admit it or not, you know you want this. if you want a freaking calculator then buy one. don't blame the phone. it's built just the way it is so you better let it. i have the phone and i love it. i have dropped mine for a hundred times and it's super strong, it's funny the tv ad of it having been dropped is so true because you can throw it and it's still perfect. i've always wanted phones that are uncommon in form, and this is perfect. i'm happy with my f300. even if it's 2010 now and there are more hi-tech phones, mine never fails to turn heads still. and yeah, you all can drool, my phone's internet is perfect and super fast unlimited all the time at zero cost. i'm such a smart hacker. oh just so you know, this post is from that f300 that you all despise. betcha your phone can't do this. :)

This Mobile Phone, Samsung F300 is cool! Like the rest, I like to be different, and carrying a different kinda mobile. Anyway, yes, it has flaw as it doesn't have a Calculator function, quite inconvenient while creating sms due to the "T9Eng" shifting function, Calender ain't that user-friendly, unable to see the sender at the end of the sms reading; unless back into the inbox, and its sms tone has to be chosen from the default. However, I still love this phone cos mainly it's stylish and slim! Also, it comes with a cool leather battery case which makes it look like a business phone. Lastly, I hope that Samsung could create a perfect mobile phone which there's still ain't one in this world. Merry Christmas Guys!!!

currently im having sony ericsson W850 and samsung f300.if you decided to have the phone as you daily partner for songs,sony ericsson W850 is much better than samsung f300 especially the setting os sony as a mp3 where you can view pictures and listen to the songs simultaneously.the sensitivity of the touch screen of samsung is hard to manage too even it's cool!!!!beside this,the ear piece for the sony ericsson is much comfortable.but if for buss folks,of course's cool and stylish!!!

  • Rasthai

You have to bring it , to the samsung service center, they will upgrade the firmware. This is a firmware issue. Read the user opinion section for details.

  • anna

i think i'm fallin' in love with this phone. i don't care about the flaws of this phone (major negative: tiny screen). it's nothing compared to the other phones i had (nokia 7280 and 7380).

a tiny screen is not a big issue than not having keypads at all, right? besides, i always wanted to be different (all my secondary phones were), and this f300 is really the bomb!

i'm really squeezing myself to choose between this f300 or the super common sew880i! i'm still undecided.. but i think i'ma buy this f300 next week!

if they say this f300 is hard to use.. i'm more than willing to dedicate my full time mastering it because this phone is waaay one of a kind! i love it! i'm gonna get it!

got this phone about 1 week ago. everyone i have talked to loves the styling on it, and how it has a dual screen. there are a few issues which limit this phone's functions, which i was used to having in my old Samsung D500:
-no flash on camera
-calender has only 1 entry available
-no calculator
-no loudspeaker of any kind
-very hard 2 talk when in a noisier area, because the speaker is very quiet, an one has to shove their ear in the earpiece, effectively cleaning one's ear wax out.

other than that, the mp3 side is amazing. all this phone is, is an mp3 player
