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: 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 LG GW990, which was set to ship in the second half of...

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 generation of Intel-powered Android phones has arrived, and while the chip maker doesn't appear to be claiming that its initial efforts are

Intel's Medfield processor (mostly) gets the job done ; Long standby time ; Competitively priced

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

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.

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...

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

 

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

 

Updated The Orange San Diego is the first phone to arrive in Europe sporting an Intel processor, signalling a new player in a market which is currently dominated by ARM chips.

Low price ; Fast processor ; Likely good battery life

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

Orange has pedigree in own-brand handsets, with the San Francisco offering up an excellent mobile experience, although the San Francisco 2 did seem a little off the mark compared to its predecessor.

Orange San Diego review

 

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 networks tie in key handsets - such as the Samsung Galaxy S III - to exclusive deals, but that's...

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

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 cheapest on the market.

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.
