This phone is the worst phone I have ever owned. I have had basic phones that worked better than this one. At first it was great but it seems like when you uninstall a program it still keeps some of the storage space unusable and so eventually you cannot download any new apps. I have deleted all of my text messages, pictures, videos, and un synced my email, and uninstalled all but Words with Friends and it still says it is low on memory. And when it is low on memory the phone cannot receive emails or any kind of notification other than a text message. Do not buy this phone ever. The speed is terrible as well. Takes forever to go from app to app.

This is a terrible phone. I am so sorry I wasted my money. The First Ascend was pretty good so I figured the II would be excellent. I was wrong. I only have 4 basic apps downloaded, (notepad, calendar, antivirus, facebook)but I continually have the "low phone storage" warning coming up. This is supposed to be a Muve Music phone, but the program wont even register due to "insufficient storage" on the phone. I barely have anything on my phone!!!! And when the phone has the low storage, it wont run properly. It wont keep signal, you cant dial. TERRIBLE phone.

Having sold my iPhone 4 I decided to have a go with an Android phone but didn't want to spend a lot of money so I bought the Huawei G300. The phone was ok at the beginning but now apps keep crashing, sometimes all of them, even contacts, messaging and the dialing pad so I'm having to hard reset at least once a week and reinstall all apps again as simply restarting or turning off then on again won't solve the crashing problems. I thought it was a problem with my handset in particular but reading the comments here makes me even more frustrated as realised that the phone itself is a lot of crap and not that I was unlucky with a bad handset.

I have problems with my phone cutting off when I try to go into the gallery to download or look at pictures. Sometimes it will do it when I try to turn the camera on. When I took it back to the store it wouldn't do it, as soon as I left it started again. I am frustrated and as soon as my contract is up I will be changing phones.

I meant to say that "I ran it like it COULD handle loads of crap that it simply could not."

I bought this phone in August. Just about one month ago the audio jack (which really isn't a jack at all) just stopped working for no apparent reason.
It was so frustrating since I keep music in my ears for most of the day.
Anyway, soon after that text app began crashing on a daily basis. Then all other apps starting doing the same. I'd find myself having to re-boot it tens of times a day. I ended up having to do a factory reset. I back up all of my data, pics, music, etc. on flashes so I wasn't totally out of luck. The phone works just now fine except that the audio "jack" is still messed up so my music still only plays out of the speaker.
I don't think that this is a terrible phone, I just think that I wasn't keeping up with maintenance as I should have. I ran it like it couldn't handle loads of crap that it simply could not. That is evident by the fact that now since I have started over, it runs as smoothly as it did the first day I had it.

Like the other posters said it's not an iPhone or a Galaxy, but for the money($100USD), it's the best phone Straight Talk offers. I've had it since June of '12 and have have few problems with it and much enjoyment. It's my new swiss army knife.

I agree with the poster who said that this phone is HORRIBLE!!!! I received it as a Christmas gift and I wish I had not. The screen continually freezes so that NOT ONE action that I have started has been finished. I try to text, it freezes. I try to get into an app.; it freezes. I try to unlock so I can answer a call; it freezes. This is a terrible, terrible, terrible phone.

I thought the cause of its poor performance was my fault. So I had other people try to use it. Guess what? You got it! It freezes!!

I am returning this phone. Do not waste time or money on this phone.

Whew. Now I feel better.

For the cost of the phone it does the job. If expecting it to be a IPhone or a galaxy its not, but I have had no problems with it at all. I like it a lot.
