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

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...

Orange San Diego Review

  • 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)).

Orange San Diego review

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

Pocket Lint
13 June 2012
  • 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
