The Blaze?

If I remember rightly from WMC, they have 3 ranges, the G, D & P. The G are Single Core, the P are Dual Core and the Quad core.

I did get quite confused with the G300 as I was sure they where calling it G200 at MWC, unless that was a different device.

Huawei Ascend G300: Conclusion
In much the Same way the Orange San Francisco was a landmark handset for 2010, the Huawei Ascend G300 is a landmark for 2012. Cheap, powerful, attractive, competent and highly customisable. There's nothing else on the market that competes at the price-point and we're still in disbelief as to just how cheap it is despite the couple of niggles, most of which can be remedied by a root around the Google Play store. Wrapping up, at £100. Need one? Get one. Simple.

Verdict
We love the G300. It might be a little lacking in power, but as a phone it ticks all the basic boxes. We can say, without doubt, that this is by far the best budget handset running Android that we've used. It has the feel and look of a far more expensive phone, and we really enjoyed using it.

The screen is brilliant, and outshines those found on the Orange San Francisco II or the T-Mobile Vivacity. It's bright, colourful and detailed, and we really found it enjoyable to look at. We'd prefer the touchscreen were a little more sensitive, but it's not dreadful most of the time.

The speed is good, overall, and we found the call quality to be excellent. If you're a person who uses a phone for phoning, you'll be very happy with the Ascend G300. We could live without the Vodafone customisations, and stupid game trials, but aside from that, this is a wonderful phone that would happily draw us to the Vodafone network, were we in the market for such a device.

Verdict: If you’re making the step up from a simple handset to a smartphone, the Huawei Ascend G300 is a highly affordable choice. It works well, has plenty of features and looks classier than you’d expect at this price point

Its a new chip so there is very little info out there on it. Do a google search for qualcomm 7227a chip and you wont see much references for ones running 1ghz. I think it only came out in Feb this year.

Conclusion
The G300 is the new kid on the bargain block and the first of Huawei's Ascend series -- so expect to see and hear a lot more from the company. Don't be deceived by the price -- it's the new star of the Android bargain basement. You'll be hard-pressed to make your money go further.

Huawei's slab of Gingerbread shows budget Androids don't have to compromise on basic usability. It's not super-speedy, super-stylish or super-endowed in the camera lens department, but for £100, you wouldn't expect it to be. If you want a cheap but capable smart phone for apps, Internet, email and more, the G300 is a winner.

Not happy with most of reviews. They all seem to be written by people that have absolutely no idea what they are doing. The Cnet one is OK though.

Cannot wait to read Pauls review when he gets back

I agree there no information at all in them :angry:

Where is the specification?

What is it like to use the apps?

What's the camera image like?

Is there any USB on-the-go support?

What about Adobe Flash, does it work?

Is YouTube quality clear and lag free?

Can you use other headphones with it?

How long can the battery last?

Is the battery removable?

Does it have MicroSD support?

I am sure there are many questions but basically there is no technical information at all by these crap reviews <_<

Conclusion

There are so many decent Android phones out there at the moment, but sadly not everyone can afford them, but know we have the Huawei Ascend G300, the super cheap GingerBread smartphone from Vodafone.co.uk. This device is perfect for anyone, those looking for a cheap phone, or possibly your first smartphone, who knows, but it is still cheap. Wooohooooo!

I bought one the other day as a spare because my old HTC Desire is in for repair (and will be for a few weeks...). Obviously a similar spec for a quarter of the cost I paid for the Desire just two years ago. Apart from the obvious speaker bug, I'm impressed, although the screen isn't quite as good as the Desire. Music playback quality via headphones is good and much better than the Desire, louder and without the distortion you get from the latter at higher volumes. Another thing that has always been irksome on my Desire (regardless of ROM used) is the GPS locking time, no such problem with the G300. Battery life has also been good so far, even with a lot of Wifi use.
