The Huawei Ascend Y300 has all the hallmarks of an excellent budget phone. It has a fair-quality screen and reasonable camera, and while it's certainly not a powerful handset, it runs Android fine most of the time. It's also available for a seriously low price on prepay and on contract. The Vodafone Smart III is similarly-priced and has a superior camera, and is a better choice if you prefer a more stock version of Android, but if you'd like a wider choice of networks the Y300 is a superior buy.

The Huawei Ascend Y300 is a fairly solid device, and for the price it's hard to complain about the niggling problems we faced. It's obviously not the company's flagship device, but it is still full of features. It does have a solid build, even though it feels cheap with it plastic casing, and the rear cover of the device needs to be literally prised open to access the innards. It doesn't weigh too much and it would be hard to call it an eyesore, even though in our opinion it could do with slimming down slightly.

A no-frills Android smartphone that does the basics well

from Tech Advisor

The Huawei Ascend Y300 is a no-frills smartphone with little to get excited about in dazzling new features. However, it does the basics well with Android 4.1 software with usable battery life at an incredibly low price. For the money, it's one of the best budget smartphone choices around.
