Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This phone is a great all-rounder and value for money. It's certainly not a specialist phone in terms of pictures or video, but it still does both decently.

The w300i is stylish and compact, but also very durable and sturdy. It offers radio with good reception and an mp3 player, both of which can be played through the loudspeaker, but work best on the high-quality headphones. The phone is packed full of good ideas in terms of functionality.

In terms of it's price bracket, I think it's absolutely outstanding - in fact a friend who used to have one and moved on to a supposedly more advanced handset has commented several times that they wish they'd stuck with the W330i.
Bad points:
There are several features of the phone that, whilst I think they are perfectly ok, might put other people off.

The buttons on the keypad aren't that large and they're next to each other, which may prove difficult if you're not particularly dextrous, although personally I find it only leads tot he odd mistake.

There is no flash for the camera.

If you're hoping to play music/radio through the speaker, although it's not a bad volume it's still only a simply speaker and so is quite tinny - for sound quality it's best to stick to headphones (and the headphone cable being connected is essential to pickup radio at all).

The screen isn't of a particularly high resolution, so any pictures you take look quite grainy on screen, so photos are best exported to computer.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
when opening and closing teh phone it leads to wear and tear shortly after purchase of the place where there is a rubber stopper to minimise impact. talking to friends with the same hone they have had a similar experience. other than that the phone is excellent, although battery life could be improved. perhaps the format of songs could also be mp3 or wma format.
