Orange Barcelona review

 

Orange's Barcelona is a re-branded Huawei handset running Android 2.2. Although it's powered by a 528MHz processor, it features all the other trappings of a modern smartphone: a GPS receiver, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and an accelerometer. Best of all, it's...

A well-built QWERTY handset, but it's underpowered and has some annoying software quirks

Orange Barcelona Review: In Depth

 

Orange's latest branded phone is another Android smartphone, this time made by Huawei. Pairing a capacitive touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard, and very keenly priced, can it attract us away from…

Huawei Orange Barcelona review -

 

Nice build, good keyboard, most of the key Android features at a lower price

The screen, while capacitive, is just too tiny to serve all the phone?s features

Orange Barcelona Android Qwerty phone

 

Review HTC's ChaCha aside, BlackBerry-style Android messaging phones are a rare and unimpressive breed. And I, for one, am not all that sure about the look, price or point of the Facebook-centric ChaCha [1].

Does the Barcelona make a better buy than the identically priced San Francisco? The battery life is a little better it has a more up-to-date OS, but the San Fran has the bigger and better screen so it all comes down to how you prefer your keyboard:...

Orange Barcelona review

 

We review the Orange Barcelona, a low cost BlackBerry clone running on Android

Good keyboard, Good battery life, Low cost

Screen too small, Poor camera, Android 2.2

Low cost BlackBerry clone that lacks ultimately fails because it squishes Android into a screen that’s too small for it

Orange Barcelona

Orange Barcelona - Review

 

The guys over at Orange have kindly lent us an Orange Barcelona to review. The Orange Barcelona is a low priced Android handset in the candy bar format with a hardware keyboard and touch screen. Think Blackberry (or just look

Orange Barcelona

 

looks good, keypad feels solid and is easy to use and accurate, easy to transfer photos etc to pc via usb

awful, slow predictive text that I can't switch off, very slow camera with a bad lag between clicking and the photo being taken, very poor battery life, very slow to switch between apps or screens .. just a frustrating phone to use

Orange Barcelona

 

Easy to use, I have big fingers but the qwerty keyboard is first class. It,s a nice piece of kit and terrific value. Would have paid more.

battery life is not stunning but probably typical for this type of phone.
