The phone comes in a very nice box with a decent size memory card and headphones, upon holding the phone it feel mainly sturdy but there are areas of the phone that feel more budget materials. Having had the phone a while now it does seem to be fairly strong but I do feel an unlucky drop would crack the front screen quite easily, there are extremely cheap quality cases on amazon to solve this though I'm talking a few pounds and your BB will easily be protected from most drops. One last thing on the ascetics the phone is a very beautiful device but it attracts finger prints like a beast.
As a first time BB user I have to say I was amazed by the business style feature set of this phone it seems that everything has been crafted to help you efficiently do pretty much anything you could want a phone to do. As a communication device everything seems orderly and right where you need it to be, not to mention the great qwerty keyboard will have you typing extremely fast txt messages in minutes faster than any touch device, with barely any learning curve that can come with some touch screen devices. Phone calls are easy to hear and find my phone has a good antenna and bars when others sometimes cant seem to get signal even on the same network, it also works very well on conference call mode.
The 9300 isn't just a phone its got media features that are simple and very effective, no need to deal with any software like itunes, so it's incredibly fast for putting music, videos, files etc on your phone, just drag and drop and you're good to go. The sound and video quality are great and the battery life handles these features very well, it can certainly go the distance if you're a music buff.
Another part of the phone is internet, of which works fairly well and will covered the majority of your needs its certainly is not for a heavy mobile internet user as there are much better internet phones in terms of screen size and navigation but the 9300 certainly works, it just depends on how much your mobile internet experience quality matters to you . You can download apps from the blackberry apps store but I will say this is the phones biggest short fall it is nothing when compared with android or the apple appstore, the basic features that most people use apps for are covered but nothing special, if your an apps kinda person this and BB in general is not for you.
One last point to make is if you've used a smart phone before you'll notice how crap current battery life technology, the 9300 lasts very well for a smart phone making it a good phone for work or heavy communicators. Which honestly is a massive pro, every other smart phone I've used or asked people about seems to last only a day tops this thing will go 2 or 3 easily and I expect it will improve even more when BB OS 6 comes.
The main reason this phone loses points for me is poor apps store and its still quite expensive, you are paying a 100£ really for just the extras over the 8520 which is I was willing to do for the sake of my purchases longevity but I feel most would have a valid argument in not and sticking with the 8520.
Overall this is a great phone, if you're looking to get a blackberry and want the cheapest up to date option this is the blackberry for you, great for communication, media and a good all round phone.
