Excellent phone for the money. Excellent reception and voice call quality, good Wifi capability. Recommended for anyone who wouldlike a phone with the capabilities of the top tier phones at less than half the price.

Rooting this phone : [...]

The only real drawback is its mediocre INTERNAL memory. Easy to fix,though: get a fast 16 or more gigi micro SD card (level 4 is ok, level 6 better) and change the phone setting to install to the SD card by default before installing apps (Settings-->Storage-->Default Storage Location).

The camera has a flash but don't expect standalone camera picture quality in dim light even with the flash. Skype video calls are fine.

The phone's skin has all the apps on its many screens by default, like a iphone. To put things into better organized folders, drag and drop one icon onto another, then add other icons to the folders this creates.

GREAT!! PERFECT!!, it was what was waiting. I asked for it to use it for Venezuela and it works perfectly. Only it comes in English and Frenchman but with an APP it is possible to use in Spanish. I am charmed with it!

The phone works great.

I bought this phone 4 months ago in May 2013. Charged it, inserted the sim plus a 32GB SD card, and it just works.

The phone is thin and sturdy. Key features I could not find in any other phone:
-Latest Android
-SD card slot (for memory expansion and swap)
-removable battery (long term use this is a must)
-large, high quality display for a phone. (must fit in pocket)
-modern dual-core processor
-Dual cameras for Skype
-DLNA certified (share video/media to TV et...)
-no major defects, complaints, glitches, et... reported
-major brand
-$150 or less

Concerns:
-Touchscreen, get a case and screen protectors if you want to use this for years.

Bought it to send to Venezuela where it was tested on every band suggested by the manufacturer and worked great, don't expect any ultra durable Iphone or Samsung galaxy materials here, this phone is rather plastic-y and might require lots of tender-loving-care not to brake, but the screen played great every movie and picture was taken, and the buttons and controls worked as expected. Great phone overall for the price.

I did not purchase on Amazon, so I can't speak to the quality of the seller advertised. But I can speak to the quality of this phone model - which I highly recommend to anyone on a budget looking for a fast smart phone with great call quality.

The biggest con on this phone is that you can only save photos and videos to your SD card - not your apps. This is a problem because the internal phone memory is REALLY tiny. I don't have many apps and the phone freaked out and ran out of memory in a few minutes, then it couldn't update any apps because it was full. I was able to work around this by clearing everything out and NOT downloading any apps other than what was factory installed (they try to automatically import when you enter your g-mail account information). I changed the settings to save to SD card - then when I did download apps, I FINALLY had the option to save to SD. If you save to SD card, you have to leave the icon on the main screen. I went to two Best Buys and no one could tell me how to do this. They told me the phone wasn't capable of saving apps to the SD card. I had to research online and after a few hours stumbled on a web page that described what to do to work around the memory partition. If you import your apps BEFORE you insert the SD card and change the settings, there is no option to save to SD. If you try to change settings to SD after you have apps installed, it gives you a warning message that you will basically make the apps unstable and it persuades you not to do this. Downloading any app moving apps didn't help this situation or allow them to move (no option available to do so).

Pros: cheap, has FM radio, well configured for not experienced android users.
Basic applications like google maps, gmail works well. Liked 'Power saving mode'
which is triggered when battery above twenty something percent. Liked 'File manager'
which is useful and not default installed app in other androids. Liked expandable
SD Card slot.

Cons: couldn't run some apps from Play store. Didn't investigate reason, but
think due to small memory which is expected in smartphones of this class.

It's just the phone that I needed. It works 3G in Venezuela and the camera is very good. Just good quality and excellent price.

I was looking for a cheap Android phone to be used as an MP3 player. There is a lot of good sub $200 Android phones, but my target is to get something in the $100 price point. At this price level, there is a lot of junk. I finally decided on this Y300 because Amazon had a used one form their Warehouse deal for less than $100.

The item that I got was a prepaid Bell Canada version, model Y300-0151, running Android 4.1.1. No carrier branding on the phone, and it is unlocked (tried a T-Mobile SIM and it worked). It uses standard mini SIM. First impression is that the screen is pretty decent. Many phones at this price point have really poor screen, with washed out colors and poor viewing angles. This Y300's screen is actually pretty good. It has decent resolution for the size too. There's no coating whatsoever though, so it collects fingerprints instantly.

The OS has a custom Huawei skin. It offers quite a bit of customizations with themes, each with its own set of wallpaper and icons. You can even set what kind of animation you want to see when you slide to different home screens.

As for the performance, well, you get what you paid for. The biggest issue is the 512MB RAM (the OS reported even less). I practically have to disable a ton of apps and services just to have an audio player running without crashing or restarting. Forget about having widgets and whatnot unless you want your phone to lag severely. I don't feel like I'm using a phone with dual core processor. Things can get laggy very quickly. Huawei put an option to restart the phone when you push and hold the power button, in case you need a quick reboot. I can't imagine how bad other phones are in this price range, where they are still running older single core snapdragons.
