Huawei Ascend G300 review


Is this more than just a budget phone at a budget price?

Stylish design ; Sturdy build ; Flash support ; Decent battery ; Bright screen

Fiddly keyboard ; Occasional lag ; Stuttery web performance ; Few camera options ; Low-res video capture

Update: Vodafone UK has now released an official Android Ice Cream Sandwich update for the UK-spec Huawei Ascend G300, bringing Google's Android 4.0 software to the phone. Our review's been updated to take this into account.

Huawei Ascend G300


If you're a mobile operator that doesn't have a £100 Android handset for your pay-as-you-go customers, then you're very silly indeed. The leaders in this area are T-Mobile and Orange, who have very capable phones in this price range. Orange has the San...

Cheap, nicely designed, lovely to use, feels premium, great call quality

Screen isn't sensitive enough, processing power could be better, Vodafone junk

We love the G300. It might be a little lacking in power, but as a phone it ticks all the basic boxes. We can say, without doubt, that this is by far the best budget handset running Android that we've used. It has the feel and look of a far more...

Huawei Ascend G 300 review


The Huawei G 300 has a fantastic specification for a £100 smartphone, but our initial impression of it wasn't good. Its screen was nowhere near bright enough and it was painfully slow. After we'd turned off PowerSaver and automatic brightness the...

Large screen and okay performance at a bargain price

Huawei Ascend G 300 review


The Ascend's two-tone silver-and-white plastic case looks cheap but, crucially, it feels sturdy. At 130g and 63x10.5x122.5mm, the Huawei G 300 also feels comfortable in the hand. There's a volume rocker on the left side, a power button and headphone...

Huawei's Ascend G 300 has a few shortcomings in comparison to the best smartphones on the market - namely, a low storage capacity, an inferior build, a less-capable camera and only a single-core processor - but its performance is well above that of the...

Huawei Ascend G300 Review: In Depth


1GHz processor. 5-megapixel camera. 4-inch WVGA screen. £100. SAY WHAT? £100?!? Yes yes yes, it isn't a typo and we resent using exclamation marks, but the Huawei Ascend G300 calls for them. You can…

Incredible value for money ; Snappy 1GHz processor ; Decent stills camera

Interface won't suit everyone ; Poor video camera ; Occasional connectivity issues

Accustomed as we are to seeing and enjoying the best that Android has to offer, it’s difficult not to pick at the less successful parts of the G300. But viewed in the context of its price point really impresses. There are irritations such as poor touch...
