Reviews for the Huawei Ascend Y300

83% Review Huawei Ascend Y300 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Adjusting the price. The Y300 is the cheapest Ascend device from the Chinese company Huawei. You can buy the smartphone for just 149 Euros (~$194) but is it a good deal or should you invest more money?

The Huawei Ascend Y300 is a fairly solid device, and for the price it's hard to complain about the niggling problems we faced. It's obviously not the company's flagship device, but it is still full of features. It does have a solid build, even though it feels cheap with it plastic casing, and the rear cover of the device needs to be literally prised open to access the innards. If you are willing to compromise and want to keep some money in your pocket, and fancy embracing a device that has not been produced by the established big boys in the industry, then the Huawei Ascend Y300 could be for you.

Hands on: Huawei Ascend Y300 review
Source: Techradar English
The Ascend G330 hasn't been around for long but the Ascend Y300 looks set to usurp it at the bottom of Huawei's smartphone range. It offers a good array of features for a low-end smartphone and will certainly give the ZTE Blade 3 and LG Optimus L3 2 a run for their low cost money.

The Huawei Ascend Y300 is certainly not an ugly smartphone but it's definitely a no frills approach. This oblong block of black plastic and glass looks like the text book definition of a basic smartphone. Take a look at: What's the best Android phone you can buy in 2013?

80% Huawei Ascend Y300 review: no-frills value Android smartphone
Source: PC Advisor English
The Huawei Ascend Y300 is a no-frills smartphone with little to get excited about in dazzling new features. However, it does the basics well with Android 4.1 software with usable battery life at an incredibly low price. For the money, it's one of the best budget smartphone choices around.
