Review Huawei Ascend Y300 Smartphone

 

Adjusting the price. The Y300 is the cheapest Ascend device from

Price; Android 4.1; Extreme battery runtime

Build quality could be better; Insufficient performance; Camera; Limited internal storage

The retail price of 149 Euros (~$194) is very fair for the provided hardware. You get a current version of Android and a very versatile smartphone.

Another affordable handset sneaks out of Huawei

Low price point ; 5MP camera ; microSD slot ; Clear screen

Emoition UI annoying ; Slow speeds ; Poor keyboard layout ; Wi-Fi issues

The Huawei Ascend Y300 is a fairly solid device, and for the price it's hard to complain about the niggling problems we faced.

A cheap Android phone with its eye on the budget buyer.

Good value ; Decent screen, bar reflections

Limited internal storage ; Some lag ; Not the most intuitive UI

Five usable, but hardly dynamic, themes come pre-installed. You can download a few more from the Emotion UI website, but they’re labelled as being for the Ascend P1, so few will realise this. It should be a fun, defining feature of the Emotion UI, but...

Build quality is good and although there's a removable rear cover which is made of thin bendy plastic but we didn't really expect any more.

Huawei's latest entry to the budget end of the smartphone market is the Ascend Y300. Read our Huawei Ascend Y300 review to find out if we think this handset can deliver despite its cheap price.Updated on 15/07/13.

The Huawei Ascend Y300 is a no-frills smartphone with little to get excited about in dazzling new features. However, it does the basics well with Android 4.1 software with usable battery life at an incredibly low price. For the money, it's one of the...

A very cheap Android phone with no major flaws

Huawei Ascend Y300 review

 

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.

Super cheap price ; Decent screen ; Recent version of Android

Less than 1GB of storage for apps ; Dull design ; Unimpressive performance ; Annoying Huawei software tweaks

The Huawei Ascend Y300 really isn't going to appeal to those of you looking for a stylish, high-performance phone. If your budget is more modest and you only want a phone for the essential day to day tasks, the Y300 is definitely worth a look. For the...

Huawei Ascend Y300 Review: In Depth

 

Do strong entry-level specs and an enticing price tag make up for uninspiring design? Perhaps.

Good screen ; Great entry-level hardware ; Premium UI

Uninspired design ; Mediocre camera ; Inconsistent, laggy performance

The LG Optimus L3 2 or Sony Xperia E are suitable alternatives tied to more established brands in the UK, while Nokia’s Lumia 520 will offer a slicker user experience for around same price, so long as you’re happy to jump to Windows Phone.

Huawei Ascend Y300 review

 

The Huawei Ascend Y300 originally launched earlier thisyear at much-touted low price of £60 but you'll be lucky to find itfor that now -- it's more likely to be around the £100 mark which,considering its spec, is probably where it should be. Full review

Decent screen, camera's not bad, reasonable price

Bulky uninspired design, not much onboard memory

It's no looker, it may not be a champ in terms ofperformance and there's no 4G, but it does have Wi-Fi and GPS, thescreen is surprisingly good, the camera is pretty decent and theprice is fair enough.

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...

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...

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

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...
