But if you don't know what is root unlocking,don't try this. Can even brick the phone.
And probably you will void your warranty if you don't know what you are doing.
Can get warranty back with flashing stock back,but you should be skilled like that.
I have this phone for 3days now i just notice the screen doesnt light up when an sms is received, just the LED. Is it really like that???
This is a good phone. Good hard ware spec. Though I prefer to have stock ROM therefore can save battery more. Less is more, i guess.
However I've just installed BBM, it's not responsive in data connection. For the rest like whatsapp & so on, running GREAT. Thanks.
I own it, about 2 weeks now since I got one. It's nice smartphone compared to its price...!
Horrible Phone the back is it is hate it it hangs … and dose not switch off .. when it was in warranty they send me the same Phone with the different defect
I have been using the phone for quite some time now I have to agree that the software which Huawei have put in it is quite poor. For the hardware, it runs very choppy. Therefore I really recommend you looking up how to install a custom rom to this phone as it will increase the performance by a lot! Mind you, it may void your warranty!
Great phone for the price. battery life sucks as well as memory (lags alot) otherwise everything else is in tip top shape
I have the phone for a week now, and i got to say that this is a great awesome phone considering the price.
PRO: -the screen is large enough for my preference, very good response in touch sensitivity, really bright, and awesome colors
-nice Huawei user interface
-the screen has scratch resistant glass
-dual core 1ghz cpu, and 512 RAM
-the phone moves acceptable as long as you don`t open to many applications, and even then it has just a litle lag, games work fine(block breaker)
-the battery lasts allmost 2-3 days, with above normal usage, and with the Right settings(Root is prefered and Battery Doctor app)
-the music sound is not loud, but it`s clear and with a cool bass
-the photo quality is acceptable in daylight, and not so bad with flash
-runs very smood on youtube HQ videos
-works great on messenger, skype, etc video calls
CON: -the 5 Mpx camera doesn`t have HD video, only 640x480, if you care for that kind of thing
-low space of available internal memory, only 1,5Gb, 4Gb in total
All in all a good low-budget phone, even better than some "not sow low-budget" phones !
When will huawei restock the Y300 in kenya? Three months from now, your song is just one; we are working on restocking it. Till when guys????
