Orange San Diego Review: In Depth

Recombu
8 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The Orange San Diego is the first Android Phone with an Intel chipset. It's packing a pin sharp display, powerful processor and 8-megapixel camera and at just £200, it's fiercely priced given the spec-sheet. It sounds great, but does the reality live up to the hype?
  • Pros: Sharp screen, Solid battery life, Great value
  • Cons: Running Gingerbread, Bland design, Mediocre camera quality

  • Conclusion: Intel deserves some credit. The company has been trying to make x86 work in mobile devices for quite some time, and has finally proven that the whole package is possible with good performance sans ridiculous battery consumption.

  • Summary: Is the future bright with this one?
  • Pros: Low price, Fast processor, Likely good battery life, The Orange San Diego is a stylish phone, and while it may steal design cues from the iPhone 4S and Galaxy S2 , it's certainly not a bad thing.

  • Summary: While we are not a fan of the battery life, keyboard and Orange customisation of this phone we still feel that the device has a lot of potential if you are willing to tinker (namely add a custom ROM, access the microSD card or change the launcher (UI)).

3 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Europe's first Intel-powered phone is a fast performer, with a decent camera and HDMI port. The Orange livery seems a bit OTT and it's a shame it's not running the latest version of Android, but you get a considerable amount of bang for your £200 buck.
  • Pros: Powerful Intel processor, decent 4in screen
  • Cons: Very Orange-y, no memory expansion
