Huawei Ascend Y300

4 October 2014
  • Summary: There’s a lot to love about this spritely smartphone - especially the astonishingly low pricetag that makes even Nokia’s lovely Lumia 620 seem overpriced. It’s a pity the Chinese company’s botched the experience a tad with its strange, childish software overlay, but if you’re prepared to put in a little bit of elbow grease and remove it with the aid of a few apps, this is probably the best phone you can get for under £100 - unless you fancy Vodafone’s £50 Smart Mini,...

Huawei Ascend Y300 Review: In Depth

25 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The Huawei Ascend Y300 pretty much does what it says on the tin so to speak, well, almost. The entry-level image is reinforced by the phone’s underwhelming design, a so-so camera and low internal storage, but then there are a few gems that take you by surprise. The extra connectivity, premium feeling Emotion UI, good screen and dual-core processor elevate the Y300 to more of a low-level mid-ranger but without the price hike that’s found on similar devices.
  • Pros: Good screen, Great entry-level hardware, Premium UI
  • Cons: Uninspired design, Mediocre camera, Inconsistent, laggy performance

Review Huawei Ascend Y300 Smartphone

9 May 2013
  • Summary: Adjusting the price. The Y300 is the cheapest Ascend device from the Chinese company Huawei. You can buy the smartphone for just 149 Euros (~$194) but is it a good deal or should you invest more money?
  • Pros: Price, Android 4.1, Extreme battery runtime, The battery runtime was a surprise. The battery capacity is not huge but the device keeps running for about 28 hours, with activated display.
  • Cons: Build quality could be better, Insufficient performance, Camera, Limited internal storage, 200 MHz more would have improved the overall performance of the SoC. Technically this is no problem, the G600 uses such a processor with a higher clock.

  • Summary: The basics The Huawei Ascend Y300 is the latest weapon in the company’s arsenal: it’s locked in an epic battle with the likes of ZTE, Samsung and Nokia to craft the perfect low-price smartphone. Its latest effort is a strong contender too, packing a in a four-inch display and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, all for just £60 when bought through Carphone Warehouse. Is it a bargain, or just plain cheap for a reason? We took one for a test drive to find out.
  • Pros: Huawei doesn’t stray far from its boxy black budget design with the Ascend Y300, but at least that means it holds few surprises. This is a solid handset with a sturdy frame, and a four-inch screen with a 480x800 resolution that’s crisp enough to read on or watch videos, and a few clever touches, including shortcuts to your most used apps on the lock screen. Huawei’s steered clear of adding in too much bloatware though, and kept things to the core Google services on An...
  • Cons: Forget about wafer thin technology - the Huawei Ascend Y300 is a bit of a brick, measuring a chunky 11.5mm deep. It’s also an ugly one, made up of smeary black plastic that keeps fingerprints under lock and key. It’s hard to nitpick the hardware though when it costs so little, and is perfectly functional. More of a problem is the software - it’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but Huawei’s broken it with its own absurd, Fisher-Price homescreen that lumps all your apps and wid...

  • Summary: Diseño y pantalla Las líneas del diseño del Huawei Ascend Y300 son muy sobrias. El fabricante chino ha querido lanzar al mercado un dispositivo asequible y muy neutral, que pueda llegar a una gran masa de público. Con un diseño en forma de barra con las esquinas redondeadas, uno de los aspectos destacados es el tacto ligeramente aterciopelado de la parte trasera. En cuanto a sus dimensiones, alcanzan l0s 124,5 x 63,8 x 11,2 milímetros.

Huawei Ascend Y300 – ausführlicher Testbericht im Video

27 September 2014
  • Summary: Das Huawei Ascend Y300 hat für seinen niedrigen Preis viel zu bieten, kann aber nicht in allen Punkten mit seinen ähnlich günstigen Konkurrenten Mobistel Cynus F3 und Alcatel 992d mithalten: Die Performance ist deutlich schwächer, so dass man recht schnell Ruckeln zu sehen bekommt. Der Akku hält zwar länger durch als der des Alcatel Modells, kann aber die hohen Erwartungen wegen der mit 1950 mAh vergleichsweise großen Kapazität nicht ganz erfüllen.
