Review Huawei Ascend Y300 Smartphone

 

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?

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

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

Huawei Ascend Y300 review

 

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.

Huawei Ascend Y300 video review

 

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 Ascend Y300 review

 

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...

Huawei Ascend Y300 review: The Huawei Ascend Y300 is unbelievably good value

 

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 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.

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...

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...
