Huawei Ascend G 300 now on Vodafone Ireland
If you’ve not heard of this phone, listen up. This is a sweet little number and easily the best android phone in its price class. It’s got a 4inch screen (coated in Gorilla Glass) and at a res of 480 x 800. It’s got a nice 1ghz processor and 512mb RAM. It’s currently running Android 2.3, but getting Android 4 shortly. It’s got a nice big battery, and 5mp camera. I’ve briefly used one and really enjoyed using it and how it felt in the hand.
We’ll have our full review up soon, but in the mean time, here’s the press release. If you’ve any questions, feel free to ask.
