Good: The camera The 5MP Camera is the best one i have ever had and its so sharp. The screen is just awesome and one of the most amazing i have seen
Comment: I love the new Huawei Ascend Y300. 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
Good: Fast 3G speeds
Comment: 5MP C

Bad: bought one and returned it within a week!! txt's froze,,,,,,got another one but can't sort the way it txt's keeps putting capitals up and doesnt do as i ask! why put a 'g' and not 'i'?bloody user guide does nothing.
Comment: anyone got any idea how to set up txting normally?
Good: Cheap and good
Comment: Best phone for kids, no worry about they might lost their phone. :)
Good: Great Value for Money
Bad: Sometimes it can be slightly laggy on the homescreen
Comment: I love the huawei ascend y300. It is the on to go for if your on a budget
Good: Great value, great screen, replaceable battery and SD card
Bad: Slow with some games, small amount of storage
Comment: I got this phone over the Nokia Lumia 520 and Sony Xperia E as a relatively cheap phone. It has an amazing screen for the low price and the back cover snaps off, allowing you to change the battery or SIM and add an SD card. The SD card is useful because the phone has a tiny amount of built in storage, and apps are only allowed 1GB for some reason. I'd recommend this phone to someone who is looking for a cheap phone used for everyday tasks, considering the great screen and quality.
Good: Most things, my 1st smart phone and I bought it without a contract. Installed a 8GB card. Battery lasts a few days given my level of usage
Bad: Do not like the slavish tie up with Google Apps and that I cannnot delete the pre-installed Aps
Comment: I hve no intention of using it for gaming, just as a phone, texting, emails, news, info and as a storage device for podcasts. It seems quick enough for me and with a few downloaded Aps is great for reminders, lists etc. It didn't cost a fortune and I think that I got value for money. The only quibble is that I cannot get a protective case and according to the UK Huawei website helpdesk they do not as yet have them available. Also the supplied (get you started) instructions were practically useless. I found that downloading the full FAQ (??!) and the Adobe App was the best way forward. I wish that they had made an Instruction book rather than a FAQ, but heck that's just me!! Those who do not like this phone at this price, please tell me which other phone was better??
