My Ascend 300 worked fine for two years but I only do email and Twitter or Instagram. Battery pretty decent as it will last all day on one charge and I use it a lot. Got a good price at Best Buy and it was very easy to unlock as the company will send you all the necessary codes (does take a long time to receive). Used it overseas no problem. Wifi a bit flaky lately and yes the ROM is ridiculous small when you are stuck with all those useless apps you cant park on sd card or get rid of. Yes I know about rooting and flashing but not comfortable doing it. Now the cable will not charge battery anymore. Must be a pin cracked or broken inside. I did manage to charge it once after plugging cable in phone 20 times but this time no go. I did buy a cheap universal battery charger online which will take a month to get here. Feeling like maybe I should move on to a Moto G second generation or ...?

Anonymous, 19 Aug 2015I can't access my contacts,it says contacts have stoppedYou should put your Contacts into your Google / GMail Contacts account, if they aren't already there. That way they'll never be lost permanently on any phone you have, even if they temporarily don't load.
If they are in your Google a/c already, then delete the account from your phone / clear phone & app cache, and reload the account. Your contact should be re-populated to the phone's contact / people list/s.

Nothing no boot up no charge nothing. It just packed up.. didn't even get chance to make a back up of bookmarks etc.. for last couple of months. Well annoying.!!!
Cheap in the year 2013, limited hardware but ok. What you pay is what you get.
The most annoying thing is that Huawei never updated the android system to some newer versions of android, event though some devs could build working lollipop roms.
Nevertheless heartbleed bug was fixed quickly. The bugfix for the stagefright vulnerability is not out yet. So using an Y300 at the moment means high risk of beeing hacked. Huawei announced to be working on the problem, but keep working harder, I want to use my 22 month old phone again.
Huawei y300 after 1 year use.
There is nothing wrong with the hardware of the phone , works pretty well even after a year use , though I have to say the battery has become weak..(I don't complain much cause I'm a heavy user) The phone performance however it's very disgusting ......its very laggy , practically impossible to play games on the device , only simple apps can be used with flexibility.... (It is practically impossible to use Google chrome on this device again) opening up an app can take up to 8-10 seconds!
The system memory becomes obnoxious only a handful of apps . To make things worse this version of Android doesn't readily allow transfer of apps between the phone and memory card . ......basically this phone is very outdated , you don't get to enjoy the real taste of smartphone with y300
my phone wifi and data connection was automatically open , it doesn't work even I turn it off its always turned on. why should I do ? please help me..

Maybe try an app called One Key Boost - it releases RAM (temporarily) each time you use it. Also, try restarting your phone, by holding down the power button until an on-screen menu appears.
Seems your phone needs a refresh, but it may be the app causing this issue, so send a message to the developer on Google Play as well.
You get what you pay for. Had mine for around 12 months and am ready to toss it. The plastic lens cover on the camera has fallen out so now taking clear pictures is near impossible, in video it keeps getting out of focus. The speaker has blown, so you cannot listen to music or make hands free calls as it crackles too much. The headphone jack must be worn too, as whenever you listen to music with headphones it keeps coming up with the hands free commentary telling you to plug in the headset correctly - so annoying and you can't turn that off. The operating system regularly freezes when using internet and is just slow in general, especially if trying to use new downloaded apps that simply freeze up because it can't handle them. Battery life is still good but that doesn't mean much when all the phone is good at is making and receiving calls. Rubbish phone after a year when it was so promising at the start.

Annie, 16 Jul 2015The same happens with mine. Actually it has a recurring boot loop problem.

I've had the newer ROM on my phone for at least 4 months, and although I periodically need to re-boot it, I think it's much more stable than the one you're probably using (if it's the one which came installed on the phone, which incidentally, is susceptible to Heartbleed).
