 Read on : Qmobile Noir A8 & Huawei y300 comparison

Upon picking up the Huawei Y300 You will immediately be  impressed by Huawei Y300 rare qualities in a smartphone found in this price range. The Y300 also has some rather unique features that set it apart in this market such as:

  • Scratch-resistant glass screen / not found in Qmobile Noir A8
  • Perfect weight
  • Sturdy polycarbonate casing
  • Micro USB port on the left side

A slightly more positive side to the Emotion UI is that it lets you choose between a bunch of themes that alter the Huawei Y300  wallpaper, app icons and even the lock screen in one go. They can even alter system fonts. Five usable, but hardly dynamic, themes come pre-installed. You can download a few more from the Emotion UI website, but they are labelled as being for the Ascend P1, so few will realise this. It should be a fun, defining feature of the Emotion UI, but Huawei has not executed it properly.

The Huawei Y300 comes with a very respectable 1730 mAh battery giving around 6 hours of heavy use or charging once a day with medium use.

The Huawei Y300 is a sleek, sturdy and relatively powerful smartphone aimed at people who may have previously had a smartphone and are looking to move to the next level or even someone who is purchasing their first smartphone. The features packed into the Y300 make this phone an ideal device for children as it allows for incredible entertainment through the Google Play Store and would not be easily damaged.
