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.
Pros: Good screen, Great entry-level hardware, Premium UI
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...
Summary: The Huawei Ascend Y300 might have a plain design and its processor isn't going to win any races, but it's saved by a decent screen and ridiculously cheap price. If you're looking for a slice of Android on the cheap, the Y300 should be first on your list.
Pros: Super cheap price; Decent screen; Recent version of Android.
Cons: Less than 1GB of storage for apps; Dull design; Unimpressive performance; Annoying Huawei software tweaks.
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: For some time, Huawei has been very active in the German market, trying to place a smartphone in every price category, always slightly less expensive than the competitor's price. This becomes easily apparent when you look at price comparisons.
Pros: one-handed operation thanks to small dimensions, good performance (even with its own EmotionUI), large battery, microSD card slot, good price/performance ratio
Cons: Camera (video quality, application), processing of the battery cover does not inspire confidence
Conclusion: It's no looker, it may not be a champ in terms of performance and there's no 4G, but it does have Wi-Fi and GPS, the screen is surprisingly good, the camera is pretty decent and the price is fair enough.
Pros: Decent screen, camera's not bad, reasonable price
Cons: Bulky uninspired design, not much onboard memory
Summary: Huawei recently launched Ascend G510 and Ascend Y300 under the affordable Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) category. Huawei Ascend Y300 was originally showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 and has now made its way to India.
Summary: Another affordable handset sneaks out of Huawei
Pros: Low price point, 5MP camera, microSD slot, Clear screen, Huawei have built a solid touch screen device for around £100 with is perfect for people on a tight budget that want the same features as many of its competitors. The camera in the Ascend Y300 isn't going to blow you away, although it does ...
Cons: Emoition UI annoying, Slow speeds, Poor keyboard layout, Wi-Fi issues, The keyboard on the Ascend Y300 is borderline shocking, and it seems like absolutely no thought has been put into the design and placement of certain buttons and keys. This travels right through the device from messaging to In...
Excerpt: The Y300 is a bargain-bucket Android 4.1 smartphone which, unusually for such a cheap handset, has a dual-core processor. It also has a 480x800 resolution display and a useful 2GB of free internal storage, so is in danger of being a bit of a bargain.
