The Sony Ericsson S302 is a member of the new stylish S range designed by Sony Ericsson and it is known as the Snapshot range. This attractive handset is a snapshot focus mobile phone which allows the user to capture a quick snap when the user is on the go. The S302 is available in two color options which include a cool thunder grey colored casing and an eye catching crystal blue colored casing. Keypad buttons have also been equipped with jazzy looking blue backlighting, so if anything, you will definitely get noticed in the dark. Similarly to the Sony Ericsson T707, the back cover is rugged that makes the phone less prone to sliding out of your hand, but looks totally out of place alongside of the glossy, upbeat front side.
The Sony Ericsson S302 is a slim and compact solid bar designed handset which is only 11mm in depth and thus allowing the user to slip the handset in his pocket with ease.
The phone sports a 2-inch 176×220 pixel resolution display that is fairly standard on budget phones. It delivers 262k colors and things are easy to read even in direct sunlight, but colors are not saturated enough and images look rather worn out, even in artificial light.
Though the Sony Ericsson S302 is mainly a camera phone, but Sony Ericsson only loaded this with a 2 mega pixel sensor. Besides, in order to make the Sony Ericsson S302 more affordable, Sony took away the high end features found on the Sony Ericsson C905 such as face detection and image stabilization but the S302 has the photo fix and photo light functions. Those who’re looking for something much more than 2 megapixels, you should try taking a look at the Sony Ericsson K850i or the Sony Ericsson K770i. However, the Sony Ericsson S302 supports picture blogging which allows you to take a snap and instantly send the picture to a blog site for others to view. The two megapixel camera can also record video clips which allows you to enjoy capturing moving footage as well as still photo images.
The S302 has 20MB internal memory expandable with a memory stick micro. You can extend their phones memory to suit your storage requirements as the S302 supports Micro™ M2™ memory cards which are easily fitted into the memory slot provided.
The handset works on a quad band network which covers GSM networks 850, 900, 1800 and 1900. You can enjoy worldwide roaming but the network connectivity is fully dependant on the network service provider. The Sony Ericsson S302 comes with a rechargeable battery complete with power adapter and when fully charged the handset will provide you with up to three hundred hours of standby battery time or approximately seven hours of GSM talk time. You can enjoy high speed data transfer rates as the S302 supports GPRS & EDGE technology. You can transfer files to and from your mobile phone using either a Bluetooth® wireless connection or a cabled USB connection between the Sony Ericsson S302 and another compatible devices such as your PC, laptop or printer. A WAP Web browser allows you to access the Web for online stores and online services which provides a mobile Web experience for all of you to enjoy.
Furthermore, the phone comes with an emails service and supports both text messaging and a multimedia picture messaging service which allows you to communicate just the way you want to. A built in media player allows you to enjoy music on the move complete with easy to use and useful music features. A Mega Bass™ music feature allows you to experience high quality bass sound from their mobile phone when playing your favorite music. A PlayNow™ feature allows you to download new ringing tines quickly in only three clicks of a button.
The Sony Ericsson S302 supports MP3, ACC & polyphonic ringing tones. A TrackID™ music recognition feature allows you to find out the name of a song, name of the artist and the name of the album the song are from by recording a few seconds worth of the song & the TrackID™ will find out all the information within seconds.
