Samsung U300 (SGH-U300 / Ultra Edition 9.6)

 Samsung SGH-U300 Discontinued
25th February 2007

The Samsung SGH-U300 forms part of the Ultra Edition II range, and it can be seen as a slimmer and slightly tweaked version of the Samsung D830 / Ultra Edition 9.9.

Slightly slimmer that the D830 - the U300 is just 9.6mm thick compared to 9.9mm, the SGH-U300 also has a 3 megapixel digital camera. However, the U300 does not appear to have expandable memory (although 70MB is built in), which puts it at a disadvantage over the older handset.

Despite the limited memory, the overall features on the U300 are still pretty decent. There's a 2.2" 240x320 pixel main display with a smaller secondary on the outside. The U300 has a multimedia player that can play back MP3, AAC, WMA, WMDRM, H.263 and MPEG4 clips (although the limited memory will be a factor here).

It's a tri-band GSM 800/900/1800 device with GPPS and EDGE. The SGH-U300 also support Bluetooth and USB 2.0 connections.

If your looking for a clamshell phone and your primary consideration is how slim it is, then the U300 is an attractive device. And in terms of looks, the U300 is an elegant and quite understated handset that should draw some admiring glances.

However, the slim design of the handset has compromised its features somewhat, both in terms of expandability but also the RAZR-style handset that might become irritating to use after a while.

Samsung say that the U300 should be available from Q1 2007, although not details on pricing were available at the time of going to press.
