Orange San Diego review

 

Is the future bright with this one?

Low price ; Fast processor ; Likely good battery life

Not all apps compatible ; No microSD slot ; Camera key hard to press ; No ICS at launch

The Orange San Diego marks a significant milestone in the mobile industry. It's not the biggest, fastest, smallest, slimmest or cheapest phone, but Intel is inside.

Orange San Diego - Pocket-lint

 

Those who buy this phone will love it, but the problem for Orange is persuading people to buy a phone that doesn't look all that inspiring, and isn't the

Quick, good screen, high-speed camera burst is fun, small, reasonable battery

Not very pretty, lacks Orange features like Signal Boost and HD Voice, Orange theme is entirely too orange

In short, the Intel debut is a solid phone. It's wildly uninspiring to look at, and the Orange exclusivity is a bind, but we assume that will change in the future.

Orange San Diego review

 

The Orange San Diego Android phone, previously codenamed Orange Santa Clara, is the first European handset to feature an Intel Atom chipset

Powerful handset ; Sharp screen ; Lightweight and strong

Awful keyboard ; Dated Android ; Worrying battery niggles

The Orange San Diego certainly looks like a promising mid-range handset and it'll be interesting to see how the first Intel-powered phone to hit UK shores performs.

Orange San Diego AZ210

 

An impressive bargain debut for Intel's new mobile phone processor.

Hugely impressive amount of hardware for the price ; Screen is great quality and just the right size ; Nice overall design with easy grip soft touch back ; 8MP camera with dedicated button

Doesn't feel quite as premium as some ; Only runs Android 2.3

Whilst it is a shame the Orange San Diego currently uses the dated, Android 2.3 version of Google's OS and that buyers are likely to run up against some compatibility issues with certain apps, this is still a very impressive handset. With its price the...

Orange San Diego video review

 

This black slab feels sturdy, if a little plasticky. A matt, rubberised rear contrasts to the glossy front fascia, and aids grip. An 8 megapixel camera juts out at the rear; all other ports are housed within a silver plastic band that circles the chassis.

Orange San Diego review

 

The Orange San Diego, also known as the Intel AZ210A, is the first mobile phone with an Intel processor to hit the UK. We take a close look at this interesting new proposition in Google Android smartphones – UPDATED 2 AUG 2012

The Orange San Diego is the first Intel-powered smartphone to land in the UK, and a budget-friendly one at that. Despite its low £199 PAYG asking price, it offers significantly faster processing than its similarly priced rivals, a very good screen, a...

Orange San Diego review

 

The UK's first Intel-powered smartphone is fast, yet reasonably priced, making it a great option for Orange customers

If you're an existing Orange customer, with moderate monthly needs in terms of minutes and data, and you're looking for a hassle-free upgrade to a capable smartphone, then the Orange San Diego is a good choice. It's cheaper on contract than any phone...

Orange San Diego review

 

You don't get much smartphone for £200. That's the traditional wisdom, anyway. Orange has other ideas

The Orange San Diego lacks a stellar camera or serious gaming grunt, but punches well above its price

Orange San Diego

 

Orange have a not-so-bad track record when it comes to releasing their own network-branded phones. Their last handset, the Orange Monte Carlo, was a good mid-range offering, and featured some surprisingly handy Orange apps that put some of the software...

The Orange San Diego continues the network's good track record of solid mid-range Android phones. While the Intel Atom processor isn't going to challenge the big boys of smartphone processors just yet, it outdoes itself in this handset, which bodes...
