Smartphones just keep getting cheaper and cheaper, but while we’ve seen the odd Android phone for under £60 before, none have been quite as powerful as this. Meet the Huawei Ascend Y300, a new droid with a big screen and some serious internals, all for the tenth of the price of the Samsung Galaxy S4!
Up for an upgrade but don’t fancy breaking the bank? You could do far worse than the Huawei Ascend Y300, which packs in a four-inch display (the same size as the iPhone 5, no less), a zippy dual-core 1GHz processor, and speedy, app-packed Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Around the back, there’s a five megapixel camera, so you can get your Instagram and Vine on, as with any other pricier competitor.
We’ve seen a glut of cheap Android phones of late, from the beefy Huawei Ascend G510 to Vodafone’s smaller Smart III, but this might jsut be the best combination of price, specs and size yet.
Want in? The Huawei Ascend Y300 is out today with Carphone Warehouse, priced up at £59.95 on prepay for existing customers and £69.95 for newcomers, and from just £7.50 per month on contract.
