Orange San Diego Review

 

It's taken a long time for Intel's smartphone plans to come to fruition. The company has demoed its processors in mobile devices at several CES events in the past, but has struggled to bring them to market. This year, however, Intel came prepared,...

As for the San Diego, it feels more like an experiment or the result of a happy accident that somehow made it into full scale production for general sale. It’s a quirky little device that features a good screen and decent longevity, but suffers...

Orange San Diego review

 

Summary: The first Intel-powered smartphone offers excellent value for money, with its large screen, good battery life and NFC support. On the downside, it lacks storage expansion, runs Android 2.3 and some apps may not run on the Atom processor.

Large, high-resolution screen, Impressive battery life, Fast Intel Atom processor

No microSD support, Some apps won't run on the Intel CPU, Doesn't run the latest version of Android, Runs a little hot when charging

Orange San Diego review: Intel comes to smartphones

 

For many years, Intel has been promising that it would revolutionize mobile computing. At CES 2010, it showcased a new Atom processor, Moorestown, and even went so far as to announce a device, the L...

High-density display ; Phenomenal call quality ; Good battery life

Uninspired design ; Terrible software ; Camera has issues ; App compatibility not perfect

Intel has proved it can power a smartphone; now it has to find someone to make a great one

Orange San Diego review: Intel does phones, finally

 

The first Intel-powered Android phone isn't the greatest, but it's a capable, competitively priced handset that might well pave the way for more impressive devices in the future.

Intel's Medfield processor (mostly) gets the job doneLong standby timeCompetitively priced

Subpar camera Stuck on last year's Android 2.3Feels a little cheap

Intel's first Android smartphone proves that the company is more than happy to bring the fight to existing processors. Despite the low price, the admirable performance of the San Diego's Medfield processor is the take-home message here -- which is...

Orange San Diego - Intel Inside Android Smartphone Review

 

In June Orange announced their latest own brand handset, manufactured by Gigabyte and based on a reference design by Intel which also appears from other brands in locations like India (Xolo X900) the San Diego runs on an ATOM CPU making it different to...

There is no doubting that the Orange San Diego with its Intel CPU offers a nice, smooth Android experience. The handset runs well backed by its 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage but the lack of a working microSD slot and somewhat cheap plastic...

Orange San Diego Review

 

An Intel processor in a smartphone? It's more likely than you think. The company has been trying to cram its processors into mobile devices for some time now, with the first sightings at CES 2010, but its taken all this time for smartphones featuring...

The Orange San Diego is a nice entry-level phone. It’s not all rainbows and unicorns, as there are some questions as to app compatibility for certain games, and the eight megapixel camera is nothing to get too excited about. Still, you get a really...

Orange San Diego review

 

Intel finally arrives on Android, but is it everything we were hoping for?The Android/Intel love affair kicked off officially in January back at CES in Las Vegas. Back then, the computing ...

but again, for a mid-range device it's good enough. The camera app has itself a decent selection of options to tweak, too. As an everyday point and shoot, it will suffice, but outdoor shots can tend to look a little gloomy, unless the lighting is...

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

 

Orange seems to be the one mobile operator that puts the most effort into adding value and providing an interesting, and unique, range of phones. Other

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.
