Orange San Diego review: Intel comes to smartphones

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: For many years, Intel has been promising that it would revolutionize mobile computing. At CES 2010, it showcased a new Atom processor, Moorestown, and even went so far as to announce a device, the LG GW990 , which was set to ship in the second half of 2010. Amidst rumors of poor power consumption, the GW990 was canceled, and not a single Moorestown device ever made it to market.
  • Pros: High-density display, Phenomenal call quality, Good battery life
  • Cons: Uninspired design, Terrible software, Camera has issues, App compatibility not perfect

  • Summary: The Orange San Diego serves up powerful web browsing for the price. Sadly, its slick performance is paired with an Orange interface that's fiddly and annoying. Other let-downs include a disappointing 8-megapixel camera and lashings of Orange-hued bloatware.
  • Cons: Inelegant interface; Orange bloatware; Disappointing camera.

Orange San Diego Review: In Depth

Recombu

  • 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: 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: You get a lot of great, high-end media features for your money, but the San Diego's virtual keyboard inaccuracy seriously detracts from the package
  • 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

  • Conclusion: Ultimately, how you feel about the San Diego depends on your expectations. Hoping for a £200 gaming powerhouse that can also replace your compact camera is an exercise in future-gazing, but for everyday use and the odd bit of casual gaming it's worth considering, especially given the fast and fluid browsing experience and (admittedly slightly dull) large screen.

Orange San Diego review

Pocket Lint
13 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Orange seems to be the one mobile operator that puts the most effort into adding value and providing an interesting, and unique, range of phones. Other networks tie in key handsets - such as the Samsung Galaxy S III - to exclusive deals, but that's little more than selfish empire building that serves only their needs.
  • 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
