Bought this last week and unlocked it immediately to run my T-mob sim.
The screen unlock had me puzzled for about 3 seconds - as a safety feature (to prevent accidental dialing when the phone is in your bag or pocket) to unlock the screen you press the tiny power button on the top edge, as opposed to swiping the screen or one of the other buttons.
Had a couple of problems with apps then realised i'd used all the memory, so put in a 32Gb card and that solved that.
The camera is ok (not as good as my old Samsung U600's 3.2Mpx which prob has a better lens) with limited controls, but there's an app for that.
Copied movies, photos, and mp3's over and all played fine - though had to install VLC (free app) to play vids.
Overall this phone is excellent VFM, the best spec sub £250 phone, and no contract. It's practically the same as an HTC Desire with a plastic case and less memory. Will be upgrading to ICS when Huawei relese the update (anyday).

Obviously if you don't put a memory card in you'll run out of space pretty quickly if you install loads of apps and they will freeze.
Is there anyway to know that before purchasing a hd 3D game on the market,that it would definatly work on your huawei ascend g300
HUAWEIVODAFONE UK g300 -- please see informed comments on Huaweideviceukfacebook forums ..
please look around shop around -be informed - G300 now dated -- depending upon the COUNTRY - u live in - in uk only vodafone still sell g300 .. no ics update in uk yet ..
Best value for money. Fast processor. Big screen. Responsive. Hard ware is fantastic. Very clear screen. All i would say is that if you use wifi battery is gone quick.
I like every aspect of the phone, exept for few things.
The battery is just 1350 mA , the european version is having 1500 mA, so if we play games or videos, battery is gone in a flash. And the loudspeaker is horrible, just for namesake some distorted sound is coming. I heard that some OTA update is there , but when I checked it out, its not available in india. Huawei has almost made a good budget phone, however they messed up in basic features like this.
wow.. amazing .. u people should buy it.. i tried dis fon and it really wonder me.. superb..!!!
dabur, 24 Sep 2012wt is radio with RDS ?Radio with RDS means you can see what song is played but only if the station is broadcasting it. Some stations might only send you their name.
wt is radio with RDS ?
Purchased from flikart. Below are some points
Basic functions of phone:
Signal Strength : Compared to Motozine ZN5, The signal strength is very good.
Voice clarity : Again, It is very good compared to other mobile.
Battery : In most cases, It comes for more than 2 days.
Performance : It is fast.
Display & User interface : Good
I have the phone, but i cant find rds function."Stereo FM radio with RDS". Can you confirm it exist and how to enable it (app or somthg.)or edit and remove it, because function is not mentioned in huawei site, and no in manual too.
Thats good as it used to be £100 in tesco! So it wasnt £80 for long! Looks like they sold out in our tesco! They must be clearance as theres no price label in our tesco now! Not long to wait for g330 now- basically same phone but with better dual core!
