Orange San Francisco
28 March 2014
Summary: "This handset is brilliant. It does everything you would want from a budget android phone and more! Because it’s relative new Orange tech department could barley give any assistant. The USB cable isn’t recognised under Vista- it asked for a disc! The USB cable drivers are too new and even the handset needed different handset drivers!! Next, weak Wi-Fi and reception. And to top it off I’m ordering my third handset due to faulty hands-free speaker. Sort it out Orange!
Summary: "It's stretching it to say it's every bit as good as a Desire! It's not. It has an appalling camera and it lacks HTC Sense, fast processor and larger screen of Desire for a start. The build quality is streets away from HTC. HOWEVER, it's a very good phone for the money. VERY easy to unlock, root and upgrade ROM to remove all Orange branding and apps which I did immediately. The screen is bloody good for a entry level phone especially.
Summary: "Bad phone. Had it for 1 year now, it was great for about 3 months, but after that it went quickly down hill, its slow, its not sending messages, can't receive voice mails, and the screen is all jumpy.
Summary: "terrible phone in terms of reliability. First one got slower and slower til texting was impossible. Then just froze. On my second one now - halfway through a text and it froze and sent a garbled version of the text I wrote. I only use it for calls and texts at the moment so god knows what internet connection will be like.
Summary: "I have had a very bad experience with this phone on two levels. Firstly I have had four replacements now. With each phone experiencing the same problem, with the operations of the phone gradually getting slower and slower. I eventually had a member of Orange call staff admit that sometimes they get a batch of poor phones. Secondly I have found Orange's customer care to be appalling. - Call staff giving false names and extension numbers.
Summary: "Great phone:-) Pros: In launcher mode doesn't use the annoying orange apps, easy to download apps and manage them too. Cons: When using all functions battery life rubbish, but then what can you expect!
