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? Design wise the San Diego has a matte soft-touch back as well as silver trimmings around the side.
  • Pros: Sharp screen, Solid battery life, Great value
  • Cons: Running Gingerbread, Bland design, Mediocre camera quality

  • Summary: The San Diego is a solid Android device that’s worth a lot more than Orange is charging, at least on hardware alone. It’s difficult to find a comparative phone in this price range. The HTC One V comes with Android 4.0 — something that should come to the San Diego at some point — but has a small, low-resolution display and a single-core processor.
  • Pros: High-density display, Phenomenal call quality, Good battery life
  • Cons: Uninspired design, Terrible software, Camera has issues, App compatibility not perfect

Orange San Diego review

  • 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

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)). The Intel Atom CPU is solid and the camera takes some good shots to. For £199.99 we have seen far worse smartphones that cost twice the price!

  • 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. We'd also like to see HD voice and Signal Boost - Orange's best value-added features - but neither is present here.
  • 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
