RATING



6.7/10
Informr score
The Motorola V300 currently has an Informr score of 6.7 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 651 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The "1-Minute" Review

A flip handset with a strong set of advanced features and capabilities, the v300 boasts a high-quality internal display, built-in camera, MP3 ringtones, external display, speaker phone mode, and a good memory capacity. Software supports Java games (J2ME), advanced messaging like MMS, and enables Web browsing and email using the latest protocols.

Those who insist on exceptional audio quality or need a camera with flash may want to look at other models, but the v300's overall combination of features and technology makes it a good choice for most users. And while the v300's style won't turn heads, most users will appreciate the Soft Touch cover, and can find after-market replacement covers if they don't like its blue color.

Very good

from Amazon
Does everything a phone is supposed to do ... and is small and handy. Camera is alright ... no blue tooth functionality available so its a drawback. But over all a very sturdy unit and gave no trouble watsoever.

I got this phone about 4 years ago the first week it was offered. I like the size and quality. The calls are clear. I did get some dropped calls two years ago but that problem vanished. I'm using the same battery so it does not stay charged more then a couple days. I dislike the buttons on the side as accidental pressing is likely. The camera takes poor quality images. It's old enough that chargers for it show up at dollar type stores. Less

for any one who has this phone or any motorola that has the button on the side for the ringer. I found out how to fix the problem of the ringer being turned off. go to menu and then select settings(screwdriver), scroll down to the bottom to security(lock) and select, the second choice is lock application. the phone will ask for an unlock code which is 4 digits and is usually 0000 or 1234. if you make it past this stage, select/edit ring styles and then select locked. this will stop the outside button from changing the volume of your ringer. while the flip is closed, if you touch the button, it asks for the unlock code and this continues to display when you flip open the phone. hit cancel to ignore or enter the same 4 digit code to reactivate the side button. Hope i could help everyone with the only annoying thing on this phone!!!!!!!!! Less

I have had this phone for 2 years or so... Very soon after I bought it, it started dropping calls. I could be in an area with good reception and yet during the middle of a conversation I would notice that the other person had stopped talking. "Hello? Hello?" They could still hear me, but I could not hear them. This problem has persisted and despite three calls to T-Mobile threatening to switch to another carrier I haven't been offered any incentive to stay. I am currently scoping out the deals to switch to another carrier. Less

My V300 developed a problem after a year and a half. I got it free with a new T-Mobile plan, and without a contract it would have cost $200.00. What happens is that when I would flip open the phone, the little button that controls whether or not the screen turns on doesn't un-press all the way, so the screen keeps blinking on and off, as if I were closing and re-opening the phone. It's like if the button on your refrigerator were stuck halfway, and the light kept blinking on and off. This has made it impossible to answer calls or type text messages, because if I nudge the buttons the wrong way, the screen turns off and then on again. However, I have been shopping for a new phone, and I am sorely disappointed that other phones, even the fancy overly-expensive ones, are not as elegant as this one. There are two outstanding points that I like: the interface and the buttons. The interface was professional, well-organized, and had several layers of submenus. The phone also allows you to access six menus at the touch of a button, rather than making you scroll through one huge list just to access your phonebook or text messages, for example. There are no silly frills that may get in the way. The numeric section of the buttons are raised circles and are spread far apart. I have yet to see this on any other phone. This is a HUGE advantage when using your thumb to locate and press a single button with ease. I have pretty thin fingers, but I still find it annoying using other phones because I often press the wrong button simply because my thumb spreads out too far. Not so with this phone. The top buttons, which feature the standard four-way directional arrows and a button in the middle, as well as five buttons surrounding that, are equally easy to press. You do not have to worry about accidentally pressing the other buttons because the buttons on this phone are very springy and do not wiggle around in their sockets. I would take into consideration the fact that my phone broke to an unusable point after a year and a half, after the warranty expired, and that at least one other reviewer's phone broke as well. I do not know how long the other reviewers owned their phones, but the V300's seem have a history of malfunction. The advantages over other phones may be worth the risk, though. Less

Myself and my wife have both had a V300 for over a year now and it is a great phone. It is reliable and takes a beating! I say that as we have two young children who always manage to get their hands on our cell phones, and needless to say they have taken some abuse and have never broken! The receiption is great. Menu's could do with some improvement, but the camera and picture taking ability makes up for an areas that are lacking. However, if you're looking for a phone with all the bells and whistles, the V300 isn't for you, but if you need a phone that's sturdy then this is for you. Less

Pro: Has Camera, Attractive, Large Screen Con: Battery Must Re-Charge Daily; Settings Change in Case The Moto V300 was my first cell phone.I am attached to it for that reason. I got it used without an owner's manual so it was confusing to use. After using and finding the manual on the Internet, I saw all the features. It is more than a basic phone. It has many features; unfortunately most of which are costly. This model, has the red and green keys in the opposite order of the norm. The picture quality is OK. It cannot take videos. What's annoying is that when I slide it into the carrying case, the ringer is often changed or even gets turned off while being pushed into the case, so I miss calls. The battery must be charged daily otherwise it "chirps" in the middle of the night and wakes me up. It only lists 10 "Received Calls". After that, the earlier calls get deleted. It is a nice phone for beginners like myself. I hope to move on to a model with more features. Less
