Great phone, looks good does everything my HTC Desire did and has a battery life of at least two days.
I bought one before they run out of stock as it the best smartphone I've seen at that price. No need to tie into a contract for 2 years now.

This phone is fine. Its a good looking and modern phone. Its not an I phone nor S3 NOR shoudl you expect it tobe for £100. The price I paid. The speaker software fix means I can use this phone in the car to listen to music just on the speaker. This phone is a Ford Fiesta of the phone world. Its no Jag its a standard, reasonable priced vehicle. Its a phone and its got bells and whistles but it doesnt dance. How about that for mixing metaphors :)
would never recommend even to my enemies!
i got this phone as a backup phone fot my s2..
from 1st week phone started lagging and rebooting!!
there is no such thing as after sales service from huawei. have you ever seen a huawei service centre?
dont make the same mistake i did .. atleast i have my reliable s2 and me ol' friend nokia n70
dont ever buy huawei phones even as a second/third phone!
i thought they were one of the better brands in china along with meizu ..
damn i wanted that ascend p1 quad ..
sorry for this rant .. every brand has some defect products(my s2 had some issues) but customer service is very very very very important.
huawei device website news today g300 not getting full ics update...only very limited demo version ..gingerbread 2.3.6 stuck ..no ics means no latest apps ..have a nice day ..
we can now expect soon to update promises not honoured by all handsets makers .. what a cheat like sony xperia play dumped by sony .. why make excuses ?? why handsets makers cannot be honest?? microsoft windowa phones ..android phones .. many let down by false promises .. what a shame !!!! corporates dishonesty !!
Me, 16 Jul 2012Regarding the speaker problem, you can donwload for free, from google play "aneq equalize... moreI MEASURED the ext speaker sound amplitude with a sound metre .. at max levels-- huawei g300 measures max sound output at 60 decibels while similar phones output measures 80decibels .. this is against background sound levels 0f 20decibels -- so g300 gives in affect 40decibels at max -- while others give net 60decibels ..40 decibels == conversation levels with 20decibels background noises .. normal noises in a shopping mall are 40 decibels at quiet times and go upto 60decibels -say weekend shopping days .. thats why ITS NOTN POSSIBLE TO HEAR G300 RING IN A VODAFONE SHOP PLACED IN TOP JACKET POCKET .. THANKS FOR UR ADVICE ..
DIRECT SPEAK, 09 Jul 2012vodafone OTA update only partially helped low ext speaker volume .. ext speaker is faulty manu... moreRegarding the speaker problem, you can donwload for free, from google play "aneq equalizer" and it will solve the problem. The sound through the speaker wil be a lot louder because even after the update it's still at half of its capability. The speaker it's not faulty it's a software problem.
Great phone bought 2 of these one for me and one for my girlfriendja on Vodafone ireland better spec than phones €200 more expensive a bargain at €129
this phone is crap the screen is unresponsive the touch button's do not respond at all the volume level is still to low after the O.T.A update. Some lag present scrolling through the screen's even with the 1ghz processer. Connection drop's to the internet even with the 3g logo indicating your connected to the internet the speaker just above the logo at the top is so low you cant hear the person on the other end. Also the G300 has a hardware fault inside the chip set were it does a factory reset for no reason at all. I know it's a budget phone but it shouldnt have all these problem's it's got too many flaw's to make it a great phone
