A bit slow
Huawei Ascend Y300 running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is a mid-range smartphone the Chinese manufacturer equipped with high a quality IPS screen. With its stylish design and the quality finishes, Ascend Y300 is aimed at those looking for an affordable Android smartphone that offers a positive user-experience.
Design and Layout
Huawei has chosen a dual-core processor hardware platform and a 4 inch screen fitted in a compact body, resistant to scratches. However, there’s not much Ascend Y300 can doo when it comes to reflection, and this is a bit annoying. The device renders pictures in a 480x800 pixels resolution which is good enough for comfortable web surfing. In order to save more space for its display, you are assisted by 3 buttons placed on its back, and they come in handy. You will also find the volume and lock buttons on its side, as well as a micro USB 2.0 connector and a 3.5mm headphone jack output right on top.
Huawei Ascend Y300 comes with a 4 inch screen based on IPS technology, and it is configured with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset and dual core processor that produces 1 GHz and is supported by 512MB RAM. As such, for a relatively low priced device, Ascent Y300 does impress with its configuration.
The Camera is touch-focused, and you can take panoramic photos as well. There are also image filters and advanced resolution plus image compression features, as well as ISO sensitivity settings available. The maximum 5 MP resolution for pictures is fantastic, but the VGA resolution for clips is a bit of a turnoff.
Besides standard Google Apps such as Gmail, Google+ or Maps, Huawei Ascend Y300 comes with a few apps for Facebook, weather and so on installed, and you can extend this collection on Google Play Store.
Huawei Ascend Y300 is a solid smartphone those looking to buy a decent device at affordable prices will enjoy. The high quality IPS screen, the 5MP camera and Android Jelly Bean can satisfy a large number of users. Even though this is a slower device and you won’t be able to shoot excellent clips, the price recommends it and makes it appealing.
Rating: (4.0) - 0 0
Summary: A great phone, available very cheaply and easily matches things costing twice as much. Nice camera, good call quality, great screen, and fast enough for lots of the games around (obviously the games must be compatible with its android version etc.).
Review: To start with, you 'will' need to change the operating system from hte HUAWEI standard one - the phone comes with he worst OS ever, very very slow, and won't do anything in a nice way, it has the most horrible menu system ever, but simply Root, reflash it with another U8833 ROM (this cancels your warranty of course), and you'l never regret it. Using CWM to flash it, and then installing CM-10-20131008-UNOFFICIAL-u8833.zip (google search for that), it changes the phone into a very reliable, fast and near perfect mobile. I was about to choose anohter phone until I found that specific ROM to upgrade it, and now I'll be keeping this one for as long as I can see into the future, no need to upgrade from this.
