Good: Extremely Cheap-Great Screen size, Great camera quality both secondary and primary, The design is nice too and the preformance is fine
Bad: Battery Life, Screen Resolution and (Some times) it lags
Comment: This is an extremely chap phone with rich features, it has latest android platform and has amazing features, great camera quality and perfect screen size yet the battery life is not the best and nor is the screen resolution!
Good: apps, keyboard, screen quality.
Comment: I bought the Y300 yesterday, and even though ive had it almost 24 hours now, im really enjoying it, its actually my first smart phone, well i had a Nokia 500 before and i suppose that was a smart phone when it came out, but this is my first in the current climate of smart phones, and i think its better than the iphone 5.
Good: Screen, sound, signal, bluetooth
Bad: Build quality, internal storage, software, gpu, less than 1gb ram
Comment: For a budget phone huawei did a pretty good job, however the ui is well it's weakness. Thankfully without rooting/ unlocking bootloader you can enjoy endless hour's of lag free operation, simply go to the play store and download the following three apps 1. a new launcher nova, adw exc 2. Dolphin browser 3. A new SMS app, gosms or handecent exc.flash player works just install the latest v11 from Adobe archives and enable flash plug in dolphin hd. I do suggest you unlock/root this phone and use a custom rom, I have done this and would recommend you do to. Follow links on xda developers to achieve this, custom rooms can be found at modaco

Its one of the best smartphones out there for people who dont want those high end phones with their 5inch screens and also its good for kids who love Android and who would love apps and loads of them. Because there are so many it could practially help you with everyday life. The camera is simply the best i have had its so sharp and the flash its beautiful. I have to say the system s awesome, not the smoothiest but its awesome and i love it to bits and i would recommend this phone everything is prefect for this phone
