Cash strapped consumers looking for a cheap and cheerful smartphone may be interested to learn that the Huawei Ascend G 300 is coming to the Vodafone UK network very soon.
Priced at just £100 on PAYG, the Ascend G 300 packs the kind of specs that would have impressed the smartphone cognoscenti a couple of years ago with a large four-inch 480 x 800 pixels display and single-core 1GHz processor.
Measuring 122.5 x 63 x 10.5 mm and weighing 140g, the handset comes with 512MB RAM, 2.5GB of internal storage and a microSD slot offering up to 32 GB additional storage.
There’s also Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth A2DP, GPS onboard, while around the back can be found a 5 MP camera with LED flash.
The device runs Huawei’s custom interface (oh joy) on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with an ICS update promised for the summer.
The Ascend G 300 can be picked up for just £100 when purchased with a minimum £10 PAYG top-up, and is also available for free on a £15.50, 24 month plan which includes 100 minutes, 500 texts, and a rather miserly 250MB of mobile data.
We’d recommend buying the phone outright and switching to the better rolling PAYG deals available on GiffGaff.
