Huawei Ascend Y300 Promo Graphic

If you’re looking for an entry level smartphone that doesn’t compromise on a lot of features like most budget handsets do, it’s hard to go wrong with the Huawei Ascend Y300. This little bugger is equipped with a 4 inch WVGA IPS screen, a dual core 1GHz processor and Jelly Bean 4.1.1 out of the box. Best of all, it only costs Php5,490! Certainly not a bad buy when you’re looking for a budget phone but don’t want to take your chances with a local brand.

The rest of the Huawei Ascend Y300 spec sheet is pretty solid. Yeah, the RAM and ROM are pretty pedestrian at 512Mb and 4Gb respectively, however the battery is rated at 1,730mAh, which is better than a lot of other phones in its class. It’s also got a 5mp auto focus shooter and a VGA front-facing shooter for basic imaging needs. These are the kind of specs you’d expect from last year’s mid-range phones, and it’s nice to see them becoming available on an entry-level offering.

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.


    There should be a law prohibiting 512MB already!

      LOL. 512mb RAM isn’t so bad. But if you’re looking to upgrade from your Blaze, yeah, there aren’t too many 1gb RAM phones to choose from yet.

    Where can I buy this?

      According to Huawei Philippines, they have it in BSD SM Megamall Cyberzone, Globotel Greenbelt 1 and MemoXpress shops.

        thanks you sir

    Is these phones already available on all leading cell shop nationwide?

      Hi JC,

      HuaweiPH hasn’t given any indication yet that they have rolled out the Ascend Y300 out beyond BSD SM Megamall Cyberzone, Globotel Greenbelt 1, MemoXpress shops, and Tekpone Digital in Davao.

        Thank you for your reply.

    is there any huawei mobile rather than this,..or i mean you have ascend P1s, much is the price

      Hi, I’m aware that the Ascend P1 can sell as low as Php16.5k here in the Philippines. Try Googling CMKCellphones, they should have it there.

    Saan pa po ba pdeng makabili nyan ? bukod sa SM MEGAMALL ? SA SM NORTH PO ? Meron po ba ?

      Not sure sir. Pero ang alam ko, madame naman branches ang MemoXpress sa major malls. Try nyo lang po i-Google ang branch list nila.

    I’ve called BSD and MemoXpress and ask if this product is available with them but unfortunately wala daw. Anyone knows exactly where to buy if there’s any?
