Sony Ericsson T303 review: Small is beautiful
A sexy minimalist slider, Sony Ericsson T303 gives the low-end a new edge with looks and construction well above its rank. Even if not a full-house in terms of skill and style, the basic multimedia coverage and solid feel in hand are well worth it. The FM radio with RDS, MP3 player and the 1.3 megapixel camera make sure the T303 will be kept busy. After all, many will likely find it too sexy for a call-and-text device only. The smooth sliding, the sharp chrome-highlighted exterior and the diminutive size are still the undoubted winners when it comes to the attraction of Sony Ericsson T303. Way beyond any of the features it offers.

Sony Ericsson T303 is definitely a phone for those who don't want to give too much thought to what pocket to put it in. With its dimensions of 83 x 47 x 14.7 mm it will fit even in the smallest of pockets. There are virtually a handful of phones currently on the market to come close to T303 in terms of compact size.
Its excellent build quality and solid feel in hand are strong advantages, considering how low-end phones usually suffer in both design and quality of materials used.
