can camera be updated somehow, autofokus didn't do it job so well. my build number is b886, android 2.3.6
I bought this one today for my wife. Skeptical at first, but after a couple of hours I was amazed how good this product is. I wonder now why we all sometimes spend a lot of money on products very expensive when we can get almost the same quality with less than a half price? In conclusion a briliant phone and I am sorry that 6 month ago I bought another mobile so expensive and with so many bugs which only caused me a lot of trouble. So I made today a very good choice. Thank you, Huawei!
Lots of help here with the G300 phone.
I got the phone and love it running rom b888
absolutely brilliant value for money, I bought it pay as you go from vodafone and put a sim only in it. Have to say it rivals my sister's galaxy sII, same software and many similar features for a fraction of the cost. I was slightly sceptical at first because I had not heard much about Huawei, but I definately recommend. Some issues raised about volume levels, but there is now a patch to download to rectify this as well.
neepneep, 10 May 2012vodafone have posted a downlooad fix ,corrects low volume problem huawei g300 ota 885 update improves phoneringtone volume but not enough for weekday morning shopping mall environment ..compare with similar handsets in mobile shop before buying updated versions ..EXCELLENT value but handset HAS to be heard to be answered--even barely audible in top jacket pocket .. vibration alert is low and shortlived barely noticeable //compare in shop with other handsets .. please buy with EARS OPEN ..THANKS ..
Me again! :D
(you'll also find this review on ebay :))
I bought this phone because I needed a new phone and my old phone, a Huawei Blaze, wasn't keeping up with what I needed (Don't get me wrong, for £70 that phone was brilliant) Saw this one for £100 and I thought, why the hell not?
Received the phone still sealed in its box, it runs a 1GHZ (1008mhz) processor, Adreno 200 GPU, 512MB RAM, 2.5GB internal storage(around 480MB is used for the system itself, so you have 2.02 to play with) Android 2.3.6 (will be getting an ICS update in the summer/autumn,, both Huawei and Vodafone have confirmed this!), a 4" touch screen with 480 x 800 pixel capacitive touch screen display, 5MP camera with autofocus and flash, GPS, G-Sensor, Mic noise compression for HD phone calls, a light sensor, and connects via USB 2.0.
The box also contains a USB cable, manuals, warranty, charger adapter and a stereo headset. Huawei keep their packaging simple, and don't use too much card or plastic, only what's needed.
The phone's power button is on the top, volume is on the left side of the phone, and the Micro USB port is on the bottom. The front is black, with light up touch buttons on the bottom of the front panel. The battery cover is silver, and the rest is white. It sounds ugly, but when you see it, its not. The phone is weighty, but to me shows its durability and strength. Under the battery cover, you can see the battery, SD card slot and SIM slot.
Powering the phone on the first time, you are greeted by Huawei splash screens, and then you are taken to the first time run wizard. The purpose of this is to get you connected to Google, set up your account and sync any data/apps if you have upgraded.
The default lock screen is uniquely designed. It is a ring in the centre surrounded by a circle with 4 points along it. Dragging it in a certain direction performs a different function. Dragging it to the right unlocks the phone normally, , to the left takes you to messaging, up takes you to the call log, and down to the camera. This allows you to complete common tasks faster.
Following the lock screen, you are taken to your home screen. The default launcher is the default "Huawei" Launcher, which is colourful and relatively speedy, however, I'd recommend downloading Go Launcher Ex from Google Play (Android Market) for a better experience and built in task manager.
After installing Go Launcher and an ICS theme, I start gettinng apps. Fruit Ninja, Dragon, Fly!, Dillo Hills, Flash Player (YES, IT HAS FLASH SUPPORT!) Tap Tap Revenge 4, Remote Desktop, Ninesky Browser, Angry Birds, Angry Birds Space. All run amazingly fast. This ARMv7 processor can really keep up, and deals with multi-tasking amazingly. Battery life on normal use is about 12 - 15 hours, decent!
Running a benchmark using "Benchmark & Tuning Free", this phone scores an average of 4912, which puts it above the Huawei U8800, LG P970, and the P500. This phone is 700 points short of being as good as a HTC Incredible S. If Huawei get the ICS update right, we could see amazing performance increases! On AnTuTu's Benchmark app, I see that this phone gets a score of 3028 on average, which puts it on par with the Google Nexus One and the Desire S. 40 - 60FPS on the 3D benchmarks, and even higher on the 2D benches. CFBench shows a score of 5998, 1798, 3478, which puts it well above the Nexus S and well above the HTC Hero.
NOTE, some phones may have a software speaker issue which makes it quiet. My phone's build ends in b886, so its unaffected, but many b882 models are. Huawei are working on a fix, which should be out this week, so don't let it put you off! b884 builds appear to be unaffected though (you can find your build in Settings -> About Phone). Get onto Modaco if you need a quick fix before an official one!
Phone can be rooted, I've already done so, and a port to CM9 is on its way too :)
For £100, this phone beats the competition. Grab one while its hot!
Anonymous, 01 May 2012what is go launcher and how do i get it on this phone?Go Launcher is a which replaces the default launcher or "menus", and it offers more customisation and can have greater speed. I'd thouroughly recommend it.
