Deal of the year I'd say.

http://www.hotukdeal...upgrade-1572075

I'm seriously considering buying this and flogging my G510 as the only grievance I have with my G510 is that screen is too big for my liking. Does anyone know just how cross-compatible ROMs are?

The roms are 99% cross compatible, the only problem of that offer is that this is a Y300 model with a standard 1730 not 1950 mah battery.

Does 99% mean they can generally be flashed on both devices, or do they need a G510 version and a separate Y300 version?

It means that only change - difference is screen resolution & build model name & numbering so that's the only thing that needs to be changed in roms.

The deal of the year will most definitely be a JiaYu S1 & a Huawei Ascend P6 as a honorable mention!

The Ascend A6 looks to be $330. Not exactly £60! :P

OK so now I've got it who is going to be first to tell me how to root. It has B176 and all of the G510 roots refer to previous versions so don't want to experiment and brick it.

I've had a SIM free Y300 for around a week now. Bought from argos for £130 so I should have waited, ahh well, never mind. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

The Y300 is listed on Huawei's bootloader unlock page and they came back to me overnight with the bootloader unlock key.

It rooted perfectly using the TWRP package for the G510. No problems whatsoever.

My argos purchase has a 2050mah battery so don't understand why carphone warehouse Y300's should be any different.

After 1 weeks use I find it better than the G510 I had and then sold on ebay, simply because I just couldn't take to the slightly larger screen size of the 510 compared to my old G300.

The one I picked up today (black) came with the 1950mAh battery.

If anyone else has mysteriously had their Carphone Warehouse delivery postponed, the Yodel delivery driver was told at the last minute not to deliver mine since the phone is in theory not released till tomorrow.

Which is annoying since I now have to wait till Monday. Ho hum

From the homescreen pushing and holding on the 'menu' capacitive button brings up google search with the cards shown below. Not quite 'now' but almost...

Edit...
Actually this only seems to be the case using an alternative launcher (I'm using Nova). with the default Huawei launcher it does not work

Can people check if you can see "lines" on every corner of the phone (rubber coated section)...

Also noticed dust already in the camera lens area....

Anyone having difficulty getting one now?

It seems they are now out of stock but with "stock coming soon". It says pre-order now, but I can't actually find a way of doing that as there is no 'add to basket' button on the payg upgrade page. I went through the upgrade check, but nothing seemed to happen- just went back to the normal web page.

Now, if I go back through the process and click 'I already have a code' I get an error saying 'bad gateway'.

Anyone else having these problems, or experienced anything similar in the past? Will this sort itself out when there's more stock in do you think?
