Sony Ericsson T303 review: Sony Ericsson T303

CNET Editors' Rating

2.5 stars OK

The Good Small design; solid build quality.

The Bad Keypad is cramped; screen is small; not much memory and you can't expand it.

The Bottom Line As far as small phones go, the T303 is solid and attractive. Unfortunately it lacks features such as an expandable memory slot, which would be fine if it were really inexpensive -- but it's not. We think Sony Ericsson could have done a better job on the keypad as well, and it would have been nice to see 3G

Sony Ericsson has had a tough year but its saving grace might come in the form of a little slider phone called the T303. We took this cute little handset out on the town to see if good things really do come in small packages.

The Sony Ericsson T303 is currently available SIM-free for around £90 and is free on a monthly contract with certain networks.

After playing around with the relatively large iPhone 3G and T-Mobile G1 it's great to see a small phone that fits easily into a pocket. Coming in at around the same size as a toy car, the T303 is just what the doctor ordered if you lack space in your handbag or you wear skinny jeans.

The T303 is a sturdy phone that feels like it could endure some knocking around

The T303 is an attractive phone that sports a reflective screen, which is useful if you want to use it as a mirror. It feels solid, too -- as if it could take a few falls without breaking and would last quite a few years of use.

Unlike many small phones, the T303 comes with an FM radio, a definite plus for a phone with so few features. In addition to listening to your favourite shows, you can also listen to MP3s and set them as ringtones. Unfortunately because of the limited amount of memory, however, you won't be able to store many tracks.

While we like how small the T303 is we're not as overjoyed about its features. There's Bluetooth and a 1.3-megapixel camera but that's about it. There's no 3G or Wi-Fi and no expandable memory, so don't expect to store much data, such as text messages.
