I’d suggest this is the first budget Android phone that doesn’t require the user to sacrifice anything vital in the name of impecunity. The G300 does everything the majority of smartphone users will want, does them well, and is as cheap as chips. At...

Let's get this out the way first: it's hard to be believe the Huawei Ascend G300 costs just £100 on a Vodafone PAYG tariff. Why? Because it looks so blimmin' lovely, that's why. We're not talking HTC One X or iPhone 4S levels of gorgeousness; that would...

For a first trip on the smartphone rollercoaster the Huawei G300 takes some beating, with its large, sharp four-inch screen and fast 1GHz processor. It suffers in comparison with pricier rivals, but against its brethren a notch above the Android entry...

At just £100 or free on a £15.50 contract, pound-for-pound, the Ascend G 300 is one of the best Android devices on the market. Huawei gets all the basics right and we can look past the Android Gingerbread 2.3 interface and mediocre camera when the...
