Stylish, brushed metal design; only 9.6mm thin; external OLED display

Flip hard to open, no memory card slot, poor tactile response of keypad and controls, no 3G

Samsung U300


The U300 may only be a GSM phone with some rather severe limitations - but it's dead sexy. Is that enough?

Super-thin design ; 3.2 megapixel camera ; Good battery life

Touchpad is way too twitchy ; No user-replaceable battery ; GSM only

Samsung SGH-U300 review


Samsung's U300 (Ultra Edition 9.6) is, in theory, a rather good phone. It has an ultra-slim and stylish design, is 9.6mm thin and just 93 grams, has a 3.2mpx digital camera, decent amount of internal shared memory, and tri-band GSM support.

Simple but gorgeous mobile phone. I want to buy this mobile phone. This is cheap and reliable. Extra ordinary fast features mobile and small form factor.

there is NO MEMORY SLOT for this phone. I am very much sure with this. Samsung d830, which is quite the same phone with this regarding the design, has a memory card slot.
