LG U300 review
|Review: September 2006|
In a nutshell: The LG U300 is a 3G clamshell phone that's one of the lightest 3G phones available.
The U300 has a similar spec to LG's other 3G phones - a rotating 1.3 megapixel camera, with video calling and a good quality main screen. The external display shows the date and time, battery life, signal strength and caller ID when you receive a call. The U300 has an excellent music player with full support for the supplied stereo Bluetooth headset. A 128 Mbyte memory card is supplied, so music storage is adequate, and the music player is better than average. Battery life is average for a 3G phone and it can be charged via a USB cable. Overall it's a good phone that offers good value for money, but is unremarkable and suffers from an unergonomic keypad. Oh, and it will scratch if you don't take good care of it!
LG U300 features include:
- 3G video calling
- 1.3 megapixel camera with 2x digital zoom
- Video camera (MPEG4 format)
- Internal display: TFT, 262,000 colours, 176 x 220 pixels
- External display: STN, monochrome, 96 x 64 pixels
- Music player (MP3, AAC, Enhanced AAC+, AMR and WMA formats)
- 64-voice polyphonic MP3 & AAC ringtones
- Messaging: SMS, EMS, MMS, Email, MSN Messenger
- Java games
- Photo Caller ID
- WAP 2.0
- Memory: 8 Mbytes plus 128 Mbyte MicroSD memory card
- Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB
- Triband plus 3G
- Size: 96 x 50 x 22
- Weight: 93g
- Talktime: 135 minutes
- Battery standby: 220 hours

I've had quite a few mobiles but I've had this one for years! The bottom line is, is that it's a brilliant, straight forward phone and there's not alot that can go wrong with it! Perhaps the camera isn't as good as it might be on other handsets and the WAP browser isn't amzingly fast but it's good enough me.

despite the awkward charger socket on the side when making calls on charge, the short battery life (charge and durability) and the bloody annoying 'battery low' warning screen that prevents you doing anything for 10 seconds when you neeeeed to send that last text before the BATTERY RUNS OUT! this phone has served me well for 3 years almost, I have swapped the battery once and have just ordered another one, (its worst trait) but I picked it up for 30 quid expecting a terrible camera, v. little functions, memory etc. to my suprise it had EVERYTHING that a phone needs!! internet that streams utube vids well, 1.3mp cam (not bad 3 years ago) 128mb memory card and adaptor, pc connection kit (plug into ur pc to go straight on without a dongle) video recorder, (not great quality, works tho) voice recorder, bluetooth, mp3 player and headphones, usefull and well set out oganiser etc. only thing it dont do is play mp3 through the bluetooth headset! the phone itself is also very durable, unlike its battery :-/ best phone ive owned tho and ive had more expensive sonys and nokias that were top range at time....

I phoned to the LG customer service and they told me I have to wait 2 months for a battery purchasing. Too much for me.

This is my replacement phone for LG VX8600.. Which I broke in the second month of my 12 month contract which finishes in april 2009. As much as I call it ugly and comment on the 'lovely' orange colour.. I really do love this phone. obviously not as much as my first phone, but it's really not that bad. There are a few bad points though, like all phones, but it out-did my LG VX8600 by 8 months so far. Aww, I'm gunna miss it!

THIS PHONE IS RUBBISH. The screen cracks SO easily! I mean all i did was attack it with scissors and there it went. It's junk. Not for only that reason. A) The buttons are SO loud, so if your a student, this phone is awwful for trying to be sly. B) The camera is 1.3 megapixels. And to be perfectly honest, that is rubbish. C) The charge is useless. Plus the noise it makes when you plug it in is terrible. AND it falls out way too easily. And just in general. This phone is TERRIBLE. :)

the lg u300 has a major design flaw, the scart connection is annoyingly put on side of phone making it difficult to use while charging. The battery has short life! Not even 40mins downloading before running out.

Ive had the u300 for 6 months. Ive had nokia phones and sony and this is a lot better than them. Battery charges in half hr. The only prob is the charger plugs into the side so unless ur left handed its hard to use when on charge. Camera light is good and doubles as a torch. Only prob is the battery runs down very fast. If i dont use it it last about a week but only last about half an hr when using wap. No scratches yet but paint starting to come off the direction key. It works a lot better on wap if u download opera mini

This phone is actually amazing - other reviewers here are so critical!!! Keypad is good, camera is decent, music player and SD card awesome and easy to use with PC, phone has never been unresponsive, battery life is good - what more could you ask for £30!!! Having had so many breakable EXPENSIVE phones with exactly the same functions camera etc. this is a bargain. Also I am constantly dropping and misplacing phones and this one has been a LOT better for not scratching or being damaged in any way than most I've seen. The orange shell is very cool - people who can't accept having a bright orange relatively large (for its light weight) phone should not buy/ have bought it.

What do you all expect for £30 or free on contract?! I got this off ebay for half of that! For the money its great value. My second ericsson has packed up and these cost 5 times more than the LG. Not the best phone but again if its this cheap its not going to be the best!!I can make calls and text and thats all I need it for untill I can upgrade with my contract. And if you want a handset to work with your network and sim, then buy a handset that supports that network......then you will have no problems!!

Ok, first thing is that the colour (pukey orange on 3) is u*g*l*y there is no getting away from it. This is an embarassing phone. Why can't 3 offer it in the grey shown on the box? The main reason I got this phone is to try out the 3 network. But let me stick to the phone itself... It's big, for a clamshell design. It's totally plastic. The keypad once you get used to it is not too bad but as others have said, quite ugly too - saving grace being the neutral silvery tone. The screen is ok. Clear and bright. Menu system is intuative enough (once you get rid of the 3 homescreen adverts). If you are looking for the volume controls (rings tones, message alert tones etc) they are all in the Profiles menu. I can't comment on the battery yet. The outside small screen shows the time but when the phone is open i's et to a 3 logo which you can't get rid of, so you become a walking advert for 3. I've used LG phones before and find the menu system strange but somehow ok when you get used to them. Perhaps it's just me getting used to them again. Screen is good. Camera is just ok, no flash. Haven't tried the rather basic-looking mp3 player yet. Style factor = 0 Functionality = 3 Overall Value = 2 (there is NO WAY you will want to be seen with this phone in public)
Reviewed by MrsGrey from UK on 26th Jan 2008
I like the phone ( you either go for clamshell or you don't, so stay cool, all you cool people who hate them!) but the battery is rubbish. Not too bad at first but soon starts to lose its charge. The figures are a joke. Still, it seems you can get a new battery online for about £8 + p&p, so I'm going to try that.

It makes things easier because it has such effective and good hotkeys. i love this phone, don't want to get a different one because this is sooooo good. ONE FLAW IN THE DESIGN this phone isnt an mp3 player phone, but it can. when you shut the phone while it is playing it stops playing music. i realised that if you have the headphones in... shut the phone then take the headphones out, it continues to play. And by christ it can play, it is loud clear and brilliant quality

Yes. The phones are really nice, but LG needs to improve support for their handsets in general. If the headphones, battery (which is REALLY weak for this model) or other accessories gets lost/dead, it's virtually impossible to track down new parts. The phones also has functions that are not described in the manual. For example: you can set a number of countdowns to/from a specific day, of which one of those can be displayed on the main screen. This works for several LG phone models (U81XX, U8360, etc.)

I hope I can get an ear peice for this otherwise i'm going to put my sim card in my old phone. You people who love it obviously had rubbish phones before this one...i didnt!

Considering most people think it's a good phone I'm going to ignore the ones saying it isn't because those people are probably just technology challenged. I think it's an AWESOME phone.

Thanks to the clamshell design the phone appears a lot smaller than it actually is, which is a bonus! It has bluetooth (but no infra-red), comes with a memory card. It's very easy to use, although texting can be a little fiddly at times. Battery life is poor, but charging times quicker than other phones I've had. Good sound quality. Still camera quality average. Video camera quality good. Overall, a fairly decent phone. Not the best, but good for the price, and better than other past LG efforts. Looks pretty decent as well.

this phone is rubbish, it scratches WAY to easily, it takes about 3 days to charge ( literally!) and sometimes the buttons dont work
