5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value 1 July 2012
Had this phone a day - first impressions; this really is cracking value, a fully featured Android phone for 100, there really is nothing that come close to this for price against spec.
It's fast, it has a good screen and neutral styling and come with the promise of Ice Cream Sandwich, *soon*.
You simply can not argue for the money - highly recommended.
Pros: big screen, fast processor
Cons: not a desirable brand name
Yes, I totally recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smartphone challenges those twice the price 21 Jun 2012
At a hundred pounds, this is absolutely amazing value.

Excellent resolution on a 4" screen, 1Ghz CPU and decent RAM, microSD for expandable storage, HSPA 72Mbps for very fast UK internet (its seems as fast as my ADSL at times!), and more...

Clearly at this price this won't challenge a Samsung SIII or a HTC One X... but you get a lot of smartphone experience with this G300. I held off for ages as the phones at this price were unusable when I tried them.

Browsing the web is pleasurable - even for a good amount of reading. The UI is fluid. The apps load fairly fast. Add a microSD card and add lots of apps / media.

The screen as I say has excellent resolution 800x480 (usually priced more than double) and the size is good too. Its brilliant indoors - but be warned, its very hard to read in bright sunlight.

The Android version is 2.3.6 - and a 4.0 is promised as the device is capable. Great - even better value from this investment. Huawei have done what most carriers don't do - they haent' spoilt the Android experience with too many changes, too many apps, too many things getting in the way, too many battery life sucking extras. The Android skin here is light, and actually useful - well done Huawei .. other carriers learn from this.

The bad - and there will be some at this price, but won't detract from the rating I give this because this phone should cost twice or thrice the price - the screen is not great in bright sunlight, and the touch buttons at the bottom are not always responsive. That's it! Oh - and I can't get the gmail app to sync when I want it to but that's an issue for Google as it appears to affect other phones/carriers.

I got mine unlocked for free at a Vodafone store - haggle and you'll get it unlocked for free.

Let me put it this way - if I lost this today, I'd happily get the same phone as replacement. That's a recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone 7 Aug 2012
Iv had the phone now for a few days, i have now had the chance to use it and its features to help me write this review.
Out of the box as previously described in other posts, this phone looks the business, not dissimilar to the HTC One. Having never owned a smart phone let a lone used one it took me around 30 minutes to get to grips with the menu buttons. Using the instructions helped in my initial set up.

Being in the IT trade, my first concern was the virus protection. Theres an app for that. I used AVAST, a free app which appears to have a good write up and looks easy enough to use. After the first day and full charge, i noticed that that battery was barely lasting half a day. Looking at the processes running, it appeared that i had almost every app running. Not to worry, i installed ADVANCED APP KILLER by android. Having a short cut to one of the 4 home screens, means that in one touch, all apps running in the background are closed. I can now have the phone on all day with mild use and still have over 60% battery left by 7pm. Next up is the firmware update. Apparently it fixes plenty of current issues with the original operating system, sound issues ect.

Apps are easy enough to install, once a google account is created. Better still you can use your home pc to down load and install to your phone, without the use of cables. As long as you are signed in on your phone and the pc, google will do the rest.

App killer, Virus Software, operating system update installed you are now free to customise your phone however you want it. Another useful tool is the battery saving software however i have not felt a need to install one yet. I have also heard of an app to boost your screen brightness further than the current default.

5.0 out of 5 stars Without doubt the best "budget" Android phone! 10 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this phone with a heavy heart - I had recently lost my much loved iphone 3G and could not afford to buy a replacement iphone. I had a budget of around 100 and after some research decided to buy the Huawei Ascend G300. I am so glad I did! What a fantastic phone, it completely exceeds my expectations! An easy to use capacative 4 inch touch screen, fast download speeds and quite decent battery life all combine in a great smartphone. OK the camera is not the best but I prefer to use a dedicated camera anyway. My only criticism relates to the screen not being easy to see in bright sunlight. Other than that the Huawei Ascend G300 gives many more expensive smartphones a run for their money. It may not perform as well as an iphone 4S or a top of the range Samsung but for what it costs it is incredible. If you want a great value and very capable smartphone at a very affordable price and you are not blinkered by brand snobbery then the Huawei Ascend G300 is for you.

I've already got one of these phones and am very happy with it - a very good Android phone for the money that is readily upgradeable to ICS etc.

Family members wanted one for themselves, so I bought a pair. As the description (at the time ordering) clearly and unambiguously said the phone was unlocked, that was a bonus.

Unfortunately when the phones arrived, it was clear that they were Vodafone locked and with the Vodafone firmware load. Getting the phones unlocked wouldn't be a problem, plenty of services out their (I use MobileUnlocked - go via giffgaff to get a discount), but it was still money I hadn't planned on spending (10.90 per phone)

A Vodafone branded phone isn't as bad as you might think - unlocking is a doddle, yes, there are a few applications that you can not get rid off (I don't do facebook, so wanted to completely uninstall it), but the big bonus is you still get the Vodafone Android patches / upgrades - my original phone was on Jellybean but easily upgraded to ICS.

So, if you're looking for a good aggressively priced Android Smartphone, you definitely should look at this one

Read on now for a great example of customer service....

One of the reasons I shop with Amazon is Customer service when things go wrong. On this occasion I mailed the customer service team describing the problem and telling them that I liked the phones, so didn't want to return them, but now had an additional unexpected cost on my hands.

Within a couple of hours I had a reply telling me that I could get the phones unlocked and they would refund the cost of the unlocking. I called them to check whether they'd need receipts (they didn't) and to let them know the cost.
