Sony Ericsson T303 review

 Review: October 2008  

Last updated April 2009

Rating: 2 stars

In a nutshell: An entry-level phone that's compact and nicely styled.


The Sony Ericsson T303 isn't a Cyber-Shot and it isn't a Walkman phone. Instead it's an entry-level phone with a basic set of functions.

It's very nicely styled, with soft edges and a mirror glass display, and is available in a choice of Shadow Black or Shimmering Silver. It's compact and kind of cute looking, with a small but functional keypad.

The T303 includes a 1.3 megapixel camera with digital zoom. This is fine for taking quick snaps in good lighting, but there's no flash, so taking pictures indoors or at night isn't recommended. No video camera is included.

It does come with a media player and an FM radio with RDS. Unfortunately the memory is limited to 8 Mbytes, with no memory card slot, so you'll only be able to store a couple of MP3 tracks. These can be used as ringtones.

The battery life is excellent, and the connectivity options include both Bluetooth and USB. If you're looking for a compact phone that's good for making calls, sending texts, and maybe taking the odd photo, then this could be the one! The Sony Ericsson F305 is a step up if you'd like the benefit of a memory slot, a better camera and better games.

Sony Ericsson T303 features include:

It is rubbish

Reviewed by David from England on 17th Mar 2012
Inherited from my wife, because she really couldn't stand it - went Blackberry.
No problem, I thought, I hardly ever use it. Won't bother me.
How wrong could I be?
On the rare occasions I've had to use it, I practically couldn't... Living in the bottom of a rucksack, likely to have switcged itself on and run flat.
Or it had become locked.
Or it was just being mystifying.
How long do you have to press down to switch it on or off or pick up a call? Seems to vary at random between one millisecond and two months. And that's not either / or. Continuous sliding scale between the two...

User-hostile and counter-intuitive.

I got a Samsung flippy thing a bit like Gibbs's instead. Doddle.

I have this phone. It is an alright phone but doesn't have video, signal is bad and there's no space for a memory card. Good points are that the screen is a bold colour and it is long lasting. I've had mine for over two years now and I'm only just experiencing a few minor problems like the buttons wearing out and the lock going funny. The camera is only 1.3MP but a phone is for calling and texting not just for taking photos! Overall though is phone is fairly good but with a few minor adjustments it would be great! To be honest though, yes this phone was cheap but now-a-days I wouldn't buy it because there are equal priced phones of much better quality on the market now! x

Biggest piece of rubbish, ever. Sometimes, when I'm making a phone call, it'll turn off the moment the other person picks up. The sound quality is absolutely horrible. For about two weeks, it was stuck on speaker phone, and it randomly went black. My friends make fun of me for having the worst phone ever. On top of that the cover for the buttons fell off. I'm very gentle with my phone and do not do anything rough with them. This is the first time I have experienced such rubbish quality of a phone.

This phone has one VERY BIG drawback. Every so often (quite randomly) the phone will switch itself off and do a restart routine. This often happens when deleting old texts or just doing calendar tasks, etc etc. You get a "Searching" progress bar for quite a long time and the access to your network is disabled while this is happening, so you can miss calls/SMS and then require to go Voicemail to find what happened. VERY poor firmware which I suspect was only cursorily beta-tested before this phone was released.

Reviewed by Neal from UK on 10th Feb 2010
Bought my T303 for basic phone/text usage. Phone looks excellent, but is not particularly easy to use. Text predicts are 'odd'. But the most annoying aspect of this phone is its lack of connectivity. Even at home it often shows as 'Emergency Calls Only'. This is the default if it cannot detect a signal. My old Nokia 3310 was much better in this respect. The best feature of the T303 is that it has a very very good battery life. So a week in France was no problem.

I have had 2 of these phones now, and both have malfunctioned after a few weeks. They send text messages multiple times, freeze, T9 fails to work, they turn off for no reason, sometimes don't ring but display a missed call anyway, and vibrate function doesn't work for most calls, only text messages. The camera doesn't allow pictures to be rotated. The phone is advertised as having an MP3 player, but has no capability of storing music files. The 8mb is space for texts, contacts, ringtones and camera pics too so there is actually NO space for any music. Plenty of Samsung phones out there for similar price that are way better. T303 only wins on size, which is why I bought it. Had 5 Sony Erricsons now, all have mafunctioned within 3 months.

If you care for your money (even a few bucks) don't waste it on this phone. Not because the low memory, not because the 1.3 Mp camera. It's flawed from the core. Reasons: 1) as other people say here, it shuts itself off for no reason. 2) on 6th month the speaker is lost, you have to use the handset. 3) the sound is gone too (no alarms or ringtone to you). 4) despite what sony says, battery sucks. 5) you can't turn it on if it is charging. Too bad I didn't searched for information on it before I bought. I just wanted a simple phone (to call and txt), ended up with nothing.

Reviewed by Becca from UK on 28th Jan 2010
Disapoiting to say the least - looks nice until you try and use in the daylight and reflective mirror screen makes it impossible to see anything on screen - I'm not too fussy about anything else but making and receiving calls in daylight is one of the features I expect from a phone! It was recommended to me as the phone for music lovers. If you like two songs max then yes. Camera awful (I know it's not advertised as great but really is more rubbish than I expected) Very poor on picking up a signal. I can stand with friends on same network who have full signal and me...nothing.

This phone is the worst phone I've ever had. Yes sure, it's got a nice look to it, but here are my list of reasons why you should not buy this phone. Number one: It has the annoying habit of switching itself off, occasionally refusing to switch back on for about 10 minutes. Number two: It has the nasty habit of telling users that a text has failed to send, even when it has. Should users accidentally tap "Yes", it re-sends the same message a further 4 more times, costing money each time. After doing so, it STILL says it's failed to send. Number three: When you send a text message, your credit balance is highlightable. You click it, and you get prompted with the message "Invalid URL", why is that even in there? Number four: Whilst charging and the phone's off, the phone has the nasty habit of refusing to turn on when the "Charging" splash screen is up. Number five: You cannot see the screen in sunlight because it's like a mirror. You have to hold your phone in the shade to be able to see it and you tend to look a bit weird doing so. Number six: It saves text messages you send and to my knowledge, you cannot tell it not to. This wastes text message memory. Number seven: It takes roughly a minute to delete texts. I'm not mad about this, but I'm mad about not being able to do anything. Not even cancel the command. I do not recommend this phone for these reasons.

Right, well, I bought this phone early 2009. It seemed like a genuinely nice phone, with all the relative comforts of a basic mp3 player and 1.3 megapixel camera. My first thoughts when I held it were, of course, of amazement at how small it was. However, when I turned on the phone for the first time, I could see why. The interface was far more basic than I had anticipated, and was generally quite ugly to look at and use. This became worse as I began to explore the phone and its functions; camera, mp3 player, applications, and messaging. I was disgusted when I discovered that the phone had a mere 8Mb of extra memory (which can barely hold a song and a handful of low-res photos), and how poorly the phone handled the camera application. Jittery and washed-out, I could barely take a picture without some amount of blurring. No kind of stabilisation or enhancements to speak of, I wouldn't be proud of showing anybody the pictures this thing can take. Also to add to the generally laggy experience, the menus can take an age to load; exiting the camera or navigating through menus after messaging can bring painfully bad slowdowns and glitching. And this isn't helped by the fact that the 'select' button is godawful and unresponsive. Now, why Sony bothered to include a media player in this mangled phone is beyond me; how did they expect any good to come of it when the phone struggles to squeeze an average-sized song onto it? Not to mention, if you haven't got any sort of headset for it, the built-in speaker will have you reaching for the nearest pillow to cover your ears with. Tinny, scratchy and distorted, and in the stupidest of places (behind the select button), you're best to get a Walkman for music instead of the audio-murdering T303. However, it has the basics down. Calls and texts are simple and quick to access (provided the sluggish menu doesn't stop you). Yet even these barebones functions have problems. On several occasions I've found myself wondering where all of my credit has disappeared to, only to find the phone's been sending texts several times instead of once, or has failed to send anything at all. Which brings me to the signal reception. If you're in anything thicker than a cardboard box, the signal strength will dither dramatically, almost always to the point where communication is impossible, and the phone becomes useless. This has been an inconvenience on several occasions, for example where I'm inside a shop or a workplace and I miss important calls or messages from friends and families. An unneccesary pain and hindrance, this phone has by far the worst signal reception I have seen. Bar none. Even phones half a decade older did a better job. In short, the Sony Ericsson T303 is a basic, compact phone that is evidently designed for newcomers to the tech, or idiots who love tiny gadgets. And it fails to deliver on a titanic scale. Don't buy this phone.

For what I need a mobile for, this phone fulfils those requirements. I only have two problems with this phone. The first is that the keypad is not as responsive when texting and I find that I am continously missing letters. The second problem is that the volume states it is at max volume or number 8 on the scale. When this is in a pocket it is extremely difficult to hear. I am always missing messages or calls due to this and on top of this the vibration is so weak, you wouldn't feel it if you placed it next to naked flesh. On the whole, Not as good as a Nokia!

This phone is a simple phone and for the price you would expect what you get. Though after 3 months use the phone now: turns off in the middle of calls,gets stuck when trying to open a message,sends the same message continually until I remove the battery, gets stuck whilst on the net browser and makes crackle noises mid phone call. Quite simply this is the worst phone I've had. I've had sony ericsson phones for the past 5 years and I'm begining to see a patern. There all round performance is poor and something always becomes faulty after about the 3 month mark. My next phone WILL NOT BE a Sony Ericsson!

Do not buy this phone. Keeps turning itself off and also sometimes will not send or receive text. Not bothered about its camera or MP3 ability so can't say anything useful -read other reviews. I only wanted a phone for voice calls and text. Took it to T Mobile shop and they suggested upgrading the software for which I had to buy a £10 cable. Ten mins after upgrade completed, the phone switched itself off again! Called T Mobile but they would not replace or give full refund (even tho only 5 months old and judging by other reports of problems the phone is not fit for purpose). They asked me to send it back for "repair". Can you really believe someone is going to sit down and mess about with the phone's innards? The cost of the phone is probably less than the engineer's hourly rate. I promised T mobile that if it comes back faulty again, I will be demanding a full refund and will probably switch to O2 just for messing us about like this.

This phone is terrible. The buttons are too close together, which makes texting difficult. I have had the phone for 4 months now, and whilst I have gotten used to their proximity to each other, speed texting is rendered impossible because of the lag in what you type, to what appears on screen. It can be a good 2 seconds if you are tryping really quickly. When entering new words, it goes back 2 spaces and merges it with the previous word you have just typed, meaning you then need to go and type both words again. The camera is pathetic. I know it's only 1.3MP, but it's the worst camera I have ever seen on ANY phone for the past 5 years. When I answer a call, there is at least a 4 second delay before you can actually speak to and hear the caller. This applys for you, and them. I got this free as i was getting a PS3 as part of the deal. I have since managed to cancel my orange contract (as they put up the prices - call them and try this yourself) and will thankfully be getting something that does not make me want to smash it off a wall every time i have any dealings wi th it!

frankly awful phone, very slow at texting, keypad is too small, when you take a call or receive the other person cant hear you for about 1 second, thats if it doesnt turn itself off. finally gave up on it after i could get no signal anywhere. i know its a no-frills phone lacking multimedia but it could at least function as a basic phone well! never buy this.

this phone is great! its mini so it easily fits insie your pocket or even your purse. it has two games and the battery life is brilliat. the radio gets good signal and the camera is quite good. its not too expensive either. the only down-side is that it doesn't have much memory but the speakers are okayy. :)

Pretty rubbish phone to be honest, had it 7 months, and it stopped recieving signal anywhere in the UK. SIM works fine in other phones. Plus, the interface is poorly made and the phone is generally slow in doing things for me. ive reverted back to my sony ericsson z530i, much better build quality, and for the same price. DONT BUY THIS PHONE IT SUCKS.

only a few bad points. the buttons are tiny compared to my fat fingers so texting is a bit of a pain because the phone is so small (my beloved k810i is being repaired at the moment). whilst on calls, the call volume could be a bit higher. other than that, i think its great. i needed a phone to tide me over while mine was being repaired, it does exactly what it says on the tin and costs almost nothing. very impressed

Be careful if buying this on t-mobile. It's not compatible with some of the older SIM cards. My SIM is 7 years old and T-Mobile just charged me £10 to replace it with a new one. No warning re. this anywhere from T-Mobile. The phone as a whole is a good basic phone, not packed with extra features but if you read the spec before you buy you will already know this!

First few weeks the phone was fine, now it's started to reset itself about twice a week. I also hate the fact that the phone doesn't lock itself when you slide it closed if you still have any of the menu options open. I've noticed a few other users with the same reset problem and suspect the software on the phone is sub-standard. I'm ditching mine as it's unusable with the reset error.

Its a simple, stylish and smart phone. Its got excellent battery and the camera quality isn't bad. If you're looking for a stylish phone for really talking and texting at a cheap price, then this is the phone for you.

awful phone, always freezes has to load for almost everything, when on mp3 which is pointless if you press down on the keypad it's ment to turn down the volume instead it changes track. Don't get this phone, it's ok for a person who just want's to phone and text but awful for everything elese!

Sony Erricson T303 has a mirrored display face so is not suitable for the task of phoning if the weather is good as you cannot see the number calling or the number being dialled - along with text messages you are unable to rad through the mirrored screen - ridiculous !

I bought this phone yesterday and it has already picked up quite a few scratch's. I basically wanted a cheap and easy phone for texting and i have found the phone to be very fiddly and small buttons for texting which isn't good at all. I am slightly disappointed with the phone so far. I have to say it is very simple with the menu and every thing but it's not the best phone as i have found it to be very slow too. All in all i am not satisfied with the phone and maybe should i have spent a little more money on one then i might have been a lot more happier with my phone.

A great phone with cool features, ace camera and qualities are changable. Everybody should buy this phone because it does everything! What can't it do? It has a walkman thing and a radio recorder. Where is the Track ID feature?

Had this phone 5 months now, at first i thought it was brilliant, did everything i wanted it to, the fact the front was a mirror was a nice touch.It's cute and a nice size, and I just loved it. But lately it keeps freezing and turning itself off, randomly dropping all signal when i know theres decent singal in the area, sometimes sending the same texts ive sent twenty odd times (i only pressed send once!), whenever anyone rings me, the moment i answer, it turns off. I've had it sent off for repair 3 times now, and it's still got the same problems. Not sure if I've just got a dodgy phone though...

After only a couple of months a fault developed where the phone could not make to receive text messages/calls. What was annoying was it still had the full five bars for reception so it looked like it was working, so I had no idea I could not make or receive calls. The problem was fixed by taking the battery out and putting it back in, but the trust had now gone and I will be replacing the phone as soon as possible.

I just bought two of these phones, one for myself and the other for my daughter. What a waste of money, I have never had a signal so have never made a call even though I have had the phone for 3 days. Never had this problem with my other mobiles. It does look nice though, but my daughter put it in her drawer and has never looked at it she is sick of not being able to text or call her friends. Do not buy this phone a waste of time and money.

Got this phone for christmas worked really well then i noticed my network kept going and i couldnt send any message's or make calls even though i had full signal, then when i answered a call they couldnt hear me for about 3 seconds so now i have to answer the phone waits 5 seconds and then say hello which gets really annoying, then today i pick up my phone and its turned itself off and wont turn back on again so i had to remove all the battery and sim card just to get it to work. I've had it for 6 months and these problems only started happening a few weeks ago so its a great phone if you want it for a month or 2 but dont buy it if you want it longer then a few months.

If the previous reviewer actually had this phone they would know that it doesn't do everything. I only have it because my 12 year old son bought it for it's flash mirror and slide open. Unfortunately as he wanted to play music, he had just wasted £50 cos it only holds 1 track. Pics ? The memory can cope with about 4. I had to swap my 960i with him as he was so upset so now I'm stuck with the crappy thing. Total waste of money

This phone is terrible - overpriced and has hardly any features. In addition the keypad is hard to text on, as the slider gets in the way. Ok if you text with two hands I guess!
