Orange San Diego review

TechRadar UK
18 October 2012
  • 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. The handset runs smoothly, with slick web browsing and fluid running of applications making the San D...
  • Cons: Not all apps compatible, No microSD slot, Camera key hard to press, No ICS at launch, Intel has done very well with its first stab at a mobile phone, but it isn't perfect. The biggest bug bear would have to be the app support, and although not every Android handset runs every app, we found severa...

3 October 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

  • Summary: The Orange San Diego is the first Intel-powered smartphone to land in the UK, and a budget-friendly one at that. Despite its low £199 PAYG asking price, it offers significantly faster processing than its similarly priced rivals, a very good screen, a long list of tweakable camera settings and...

  • 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)).

  • Summary: Plenty of high-end media functions are on offer, but the onscreen keyboard deficiencies really let the San Diego down.
  • Pros: Speedy performance, great high definition screen, support for NFC as well as onboard Orange apps to enable mobile payments
  • Cons: Flawed auto-correct slows down typing, bland user interface from Orange, lack of support for some popular Android apps

Orange San Diego in-depth review -

Mobile Choice UK
6 July 2012
  • Summary: The Orange San Diego sports a sturdy but streamlined unibody with a tactile rubber back cover and super sharp screen Android Gingerbread is as ever intuitive and simple, but the Orange interface adds little (apart from bloatware apps you’ll probably want to delete).
  • Pros: Fast performance, brilliant high definition display, NFC support plus existing Orange apps for mobile payments and other contactless technology
  • Cons: Illogical auto-correct slows typing, Orange interface is bland and doesn’t support some popular Android apps

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: In short, the Intel debut is a solid phone. It's wildly uninspiring to look at, and the Orange exclusivity is a bind, but we assume that will change in the future. We could live without Orange's customisations, as they make everything very orange without actually improving much.
  • Pros: Quick, good screen, high-speed camera burst is fun, small, reasonable battery
  • Cons: Not very pretty, lacks Orange features like Signal Boost and HD Voice, Orange theme is entirely too orange
