Is this worth a punt?

4.5" screen 1.2ghz dual core and Jelly Bean for £130 PAYG

Looks tempting

the Missus is on the lookout for a new phone... so this could well be on her shopping list (along with the blade III if anywhere has them in stock)

This looks nice, shame it didnt come with 768mb or 1gb of ram but it's still a worthy upgrade

With all the people on here moaning about Huawei on here why on earth would you want to buy another cheap Chinese phone. You get what you pay for. It ain't all about hardware specs. Last Chinese phone for me.

Since getting my Nexus 4 with its 2gb of ram I haven't had to uninstall a single app. Not one! It's such a relief not to have to scrape by with 512mb like I did on my San Francisco or my Xperia Ray. Do yourselves a favour - skip all this 512mb junk and buy a 2nd hand Galaxy S2 for the same price. My wife just got one, I rooted it & installed a good custom Jellybean rom and it flies! Beats the cack out of anything Huawei or ZTE will crap out as part of their budget ranges for the foreseeable future

You shouldn't be so against chinese phones, a lot of them are actually amazing for the price and they are very reliable. I have access to one at home, so I know, and it's great.

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

:excl:A WARNING TO ALL G300 OWNERS! Please Read! (The Flash Memory Problem!) :excl:

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

Spoiler

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Spoiler

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

If I did, Please press the rep_up1.png button, in the bottom right hand corner of my posts.

If I really helped you, you could also donate to me. Thanks!  :)

Moaning about Huawei? I don't think so. Not sure about other Huawei phones, but the support for the G300 is awesome in modaco, and its because of this support the Huawei is popular

Anyway I'm willing to bet 130 quid that Vodafone will put a load of c**pware on the ROM, like they did with the G300, anyway I want one! :P

is it NFC or not? conflicting info.

Dual SIM and low PPI gives this an "old person travelling" niche.

otherwise can't see point of high CPU spec with such low RAM, it'll be a crap for many large apps.
