Good: the phone is really reponsive and i feel it is the best smart phone for it price
Bad: the ram is a bit low at only 512 mb ram it can't handel big games like nova 3
Comment: I really like this phone and it is easy able to run minecraft, angry birds, hungry shark, both temble runs and even real raceing 3 I feel in love with this phone the second I picked it up and the touch screen on the big 4" screen is super smooth and it is the best budget smart phone as I use to have a Samsung galaxy mini and changing this this was like the best thing I ever did
Good: screen size build quality runs smooth price
Bad: screen its the best in bright sunlight
Comment: I was using the galaxy s3 mini which kept breaking on me so I bought the y300 as at the time it was all I could afford and the spec for the price is simply astonishing a 4" screen android jelly bean decent camera dual core processor expandable memory upto 3gb all for £60 I thought it to good to be true but its great I have seen reviews on the handset concerning its speed yet I found it great it did everything I asked first time round and did it faster than the s3 mini the only problem I would say it does have in bright sunshine the screen can be a little hard to see but that aside its a great handset and if a budget phone like this one can impress like it has I would love to see what its bigger brother such as the ascend p2 and p6 are capable of
Comment: I am very interested in purchasing phones, but i was wondering if i would have access to apps such as Snapchat, Instagram, Skype, Twitter... ect. And if there is a large choice of games and apps to choose do download/purchase. Does this phone have "market" where i can get these apps from like other Android phones? Thanks for you're help! :)
Comment: has anyone tried the skype video calling on it please?
Good: screen, jellybean, price!
Bad: Everything else!
Comment: Weak cpu - cortex a5 thats also in galaxy y and loads of adreno 200 budget phones! If your going to buy y300 then just forget the dual core spec! Its chipset is the s4 play which is rubbish compared to the normal s4chipset! Good for things like email and facebook but bad gaming experience!
Comment: IF U WANT TO KNOW ABOUT RUNNING ANY PARTICULAR GAME ON THIS PHONE JUST WRITHE THE NAME OF THAT GAME IN COMMENT SECTION. I CAN TELL U ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE OF ANY GAME
Good: display quality price
Comment: not for camera or heavy gaming lovers
Bad: heavy gaming
Comment: I HAVE been using this product as my first smartphone for couplr=e of months and i have checked every single console quailty games on it including paid and free games.IT runs all the games but with lagging and low graphics due to 512 mb of ram and a gpu of adreno 203.if u r a hardcore gamer then this phone is not for u.lets talk about the mini games it runs all mini games including all temple runs angry birds fruit ninja brilliantly only four games show glitching in it and those games are bat man the dark knight rises gangstar vegas gta vice city 9mm and also shadowgun shows some touch calibration problems too modern combat 4 and need for speed most wanted run good but all other gakmes more than 500mb run average
Good: Price, build quality, display
Comment: I would like add something to the information about that 1GB application storage. You can chose default storage for installing aplication, and of course u can chose SD card. So yes, you can definately install games like N.O.V.A 3 on this phone, I have tried it. Though just for your interrest it is not running fluently.
Comment: @ jocu It is available at the Carphone Warehouse on a PAYG upgrade at £59.95
