Huawei Ascend G300 review


Is this more than just a budget phone at a budget price?

Stylish design ; Sturdy build ; Flash support ; Decent battery ; Bright screen

Fiddly keyboard ; Occasional lag ; Stuttery web performance ; Few camera options ; Low-res video capture

Huawei Ascend G300 Android phone


Huawei's Ascend G300 defies its budget price tag to offer a compelling smartphone for minimal cost

Incredibly low price ; Good build quality ; Decent performance

Touch buttons not always responsive ; Display occasionally unresponsive to taps ; Ugly UI

The Huawei Ascend G300 successfully redefines how much value you can expect to get from a phone that costs less than $200. While not perfect, it has an excellent design, a great screen and intuitive software that performs well. Without a doubt the best...

Huawei Ascend G300 review


The Huawei Ascend G300 is an ultra-affordable Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone with a 4-inch screen, available for as little as £100 on PAYG

Large, sharp screen ; Huge battery life ; Decent all-round performance

Stingy storage ; Unimpressive camera ; Occasional touch sensitivity i

The Huawei Ascend G300 might on paper look like another cheap and less-than-cheerful Android phone, but it’s a solid buy considering its price. The screen is top drawer, the battery life is epic and there’s enough power on board to perform most tasks...

Huawei Ascend G300 review


If you're a mobile operator that doesn't have a £100 Android handset for your pay-as-you-go customers, then you're very silly indeed. The leaders in this area are T-Mobile and Orange, who have very capable phones in this price range. Orange has the San...

Cheap, nicely designed, lovely to use, feels premium, great call quality

Screen isn't sensitive enough, processing power could be better, Vodafone junk

For £100, this is a great handset, but it would be a great handset if it cost more too. The screen could be a little more sensitive though, but aside from that the phone is almost indistinguishable from some more expensive models.

You no longer need to spend a big wad of cash to get a good smartphone...

Solid and stylish design ; Low price tag ; Good screen ; Impressive battery life

Can be a little bit laggy at times ; Camera could be better

However as light decreases so does its performance, with a lot of noise creeping into shots. It also doesn't handle shadow detail very well. You can call the LED flash in to play to help it out when you're shooting in low light, to help improve things.

Huawei Ascend G 300 review


The Huawei G 300 has a fantastic specification for a £100 smartphone, but our initial impression of it wasn't good. Its screen was nowhere near bright enough and it was painfully slow. After we'd turned off PowerSaver and automatic brightness the...

Large screen and okay performance at a bargain price

Huawei Ascend G 300 review


The Ascend's two-tone silver-and-white plastic case looks cheap but, crucially, it feels sturdy. At 130g and 63x10.5x122.5mm, the Huawei G 300 also feels comfortable in the hand. There's a volume rocker on the left side, a power button and headphone...

Huawei's Ascend G 300 has a few shortcomings in comparison to the best smartphones on the market - namely, a low storage capacity, an inferior build, a less-capable camera and only a single-core processor - but its performance is well above that of the...

Huawei Ascend G300 review


The Huawei Ascend G300 is the new kid on the Android bargain block, but don't be deceived by the low cost because it boasts a 4-inch screen and a 1GHz chip. For this price, you'll be hard-pressed to make your money go further.

Cheap but fully featured ; Larger screen and chip than budget rivals ; Decent battery life ; Attractive design ; MicroSD card slot

Some operator bloatware

The G300 is the new kid on the bargain block and the first of Huawei's Ascend series -- so expect to see and hear a lot more from the company. Don't be deceived by the price -- it's the new star of the Android bargain basement. You'll be hard-pressed...

Huawei Ascend G300 Review: In Depth


"Wow! Best phone I've ever had. I thought there must be a catch having such a good spec, plus fast as an iPhone 4 for just £100. Ten months on & its been 100% reliable, battery life is great, I often get 3 days of moderate use. After a smooth update to...

Incredible value for money ; Snappy 1GHz processor ; Decent stills camera

Interface won't suit everyone ; Poor video camera ; Occasional connectivity issues

In much the Same way the Orange San Francisco was a landmark handset for 2010, the Huawei Ascend G300 is a landmark for 2012. Cheap, powerful, attractive, competent and highly customisable. There's nothing else on the market that competes at the...
