Orange San Francisco II Review: In Depth

Recombu
28 March 2014
  • Conclusion: For a no-frills solution, it’s hard to find fault with the Orange San Francisco II. The build quality is respectable, the camera’s not bad and the price is very very nice. The overall performance occasionally frustrates, but for those who just want a simple phone for the basics plus Facebook, Twitter and the occasional game will lap up the San Francisco II. It’s certainly good value for money.
  • Pros: Super low price point, High resolution screen, Good value for money
  • Cons: No Flash Player support, Slow user experience, Some of the Orange apps feel superfluous

Orange San Francisco II review

Pocket Lint
13 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Those of us with expensive smartphones sometimes forget that not everyone needs, or wants, a device in their pocket that costs £500. So for those who either don't see the point of super-expensive phones, or just simply can't justify the expense, there's the Orange San Francisco II.
  • Pros: Cheap, nice display, lots of cool Orange features, compact and light, HD Voice
  • Cons: A bit laggy, not as exciting as some smartphones, Orange customisations

11 December 2011
  • Summary: A fantastic price for PAYG. The first San Francisco won awards aplenty and the San Francisco II may well do the same. It offers high build quality and a good list of specs. You’re getting an awful lot for your 100 quid.
  • Pros: : Quality chassis; A Gingerbread Android handset for less than a hundred quid
  • Cons: Onboard storage is only 512MB, but you can add a microSD card

31 January 2012
  • Summary: Comme d’autres constructeurs avant lui, ZTE cède à la mode du « S » pour désigner un modèle qui est une amélioration du précédent, mais pas une nouveauté à proprement parler. Ce Blade S n’en demeure pas moins surprenant, notamment de par son prix très bas pour une telle fiche technique.
  • Pros: Grand écran 3.5, Rapport qualité / prix imbattable, • Le design sobre et glossy, • La qualité de fabrication honnête, • La taille de l’écran et son rendu correct, • Le lecteur musical est bon, • Le rapport qualité / prix imbattable
  • Cons: • L’écran n’est plus Amoled comme sur le premier Blade, • Le navigateur Web est relativement lent, • L’autonomie d’à peine une journée en utilisation normale
