Its resolution is 240 by 320 pixels, the diagonal is 2.4 inches, respectively, the density of pixels per inch is small - 167, which worsens how small elements look. The screen supports 262 thousand colors. The brightness of the display can not be changed, it is very bright in the sun, and the viewing angles are not the best.
Between the screen and the keyboard is a panel withbuttons for calls and message center. It is glossy, and fingerprints on it are quite noticeable. The numeric keys are divided into 4 rows, they are rather embossed and well highlighted, so typing text and numbers on the Nokia 300 is a pleasure. But the volume and unlock buttons, located on the left end, are tufty and do not respond so quickly to pressing. All connectors of the model are located on the top end - mini USB, charging and headphone jack.
