Orange San Francisco (ZTE Blade)


We take a look at a truly game changing, feature packed budget smartphone which Orange cannot ruin - try as it might...

Brilliant screen ; Feature packed ; Incredible price

Orange Bloatware ; Poor Camera

San Francisco

What a Brilliant Phone


This was purchased for my sons 14th Birthday. This phone is probably the best alternative to the Iphone, althought this phone is tied to the orange network, it can very easily be untied so as to allow use on all networks.......
