Summary: I have had this phone for about a year now and in this period of time it has been sent off for repair three times because of the screen. It kept freezing and then shutting off and each time it came back it still didnt work. The battery life is awful, it barely lasts a day and normally in a day i use it for listening to music or texting. The camera had a very low resolution and was very dissapointing until it stopped working.
Summary: It is a great phone, or at least a phone with great potential. The hardware is high quality, and you can tell: it is fluid, the screen is excellent, and the sound is much better than other phones in this class. However, great parts do not make a great phone. First of all Intel has never quite finished Android for Intel, and more and more games are now incompatible with it. The OS is getting out of date, and the bootloader is locked, so nothing can be done about it.
Summary: As everyone else has been saying, the on/off button has completely packed in on my phone as well. I got the phone and a few weeks later the button became permanently locked down and I had to use excessive force to unlock it. I took it into the orange shop and it was sent off to be fixed for several weeks and when I got it back it seemed fixed, however a few weeks later the same thing happened, and I just decided to leave it as it was still pretty much usable but recently...
Summary: At less than £100 on pay as you go this handset is fantastic value and is a vast improvement on previous Orange/ZTE models. Once you get rid of the Orange interface (go to Modaco to see how) you have, in my view, a well designed handset, a fast processor, a nice screen (although not great in bright light) with some other nice features such as micro-HD connectivity and NFC capability.
Summary: I had this phone in july and 6 weeks later, the on/off button has failed!I was given a replacement and sure enough 5 months later the on/off button has failed again!!The only way I can use the phone is to put it on charge and then the screen will light up!this time orange want to charge me nearly £60 to repair it!!I would really like to know why?afterall..the only crime I committed was to use the phone properly!!Not impressed.
Summary: I wish I had read some of these reviews before getting this phone as an Orange upgrade. The power on/off button was a problem from when I first used it last November. Because of constantly having to put pressure on the phone to turn it on the actual button has now fallen apart. The only way I can turn the phone on is by plugging it in to the mains or if some-one calls me. So if I was out and needed to phone some-one I would'nt be able to.
Summary: Yes, this phones has a very nice processor and screen for the price, but of the 3 people I know who have bought this phone, they've all broken them within 4 months. One of them their headphone jack broke within a couple of weeks, and then a few months later dropped their phone and the screen was compleatly smashed beyond use. The other also dropped the phone and it suffered a similar fate to the first one.
