Huawei the lads

Took delivery of my son's G300 yesterday. What a splendid piece of kit. 100 quid, for some reason I managed to get it without the obligatory 10 quid top up, a fiver back from topcashback, 18 quid for a 32gb sdcard from Amazon and 5 quid to unlock. Native android (pretty much) very slick with a nice 3d carousel effective rotating between the screens - don't know what the launcher is bit its very smooth. So much better than anything else at this price range its just mad.
Makes me feel a bit guilty even worrying about dual/quad or whatever core when a phone this good can be had for this sort of money. Blows the big boys budget handsets out the water.
Thoroughly recommend for those on a budget. Or not.

Thanks for that.
Sounds like I should replace my Acer Liquid MT...

I'm being really impressed with Huawei this year. They said they wanted to be in the top 5 mobile companies this year and with the release of this phone and also the Ascend series in the summer they could do that. I've only played around on the G300 and it really is awesome as the OP says. Of course i haven't had time to test battery life and other things, but i've heard no complaints so far.

All networks need to do is sell Huawei's phones on contract like they used too. It's quite hard to find a Huawei phone that is on contract. Even O2's new one is just PAYG atm.

The problem is that the big networks (Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone, O2 and 3) are in bed with the big phone manufacturers (Apple, Samsung, HTC, Sony, Motorola and Nokia). It took the direct backing of Google for the networks to take HTC seriously, when they began making Android devices.

Huawei phones are great, they're seriously up there with Samsung and HTC, but they need to somehow convince the networks of that...
