Orange SPV E650 review: Orange SPV E650


Good looking design; slide-out keyboard; good range of features.

No 3G support; sometimes feels sluggish.

With its large screen, slick design and slide-out keyboard, the Orange SPV E650 is one of the most impressive Windows smart phones we've seen in a while. The lack of 3G support and sometimes sluggish performance are disappointments, but despite these...

Orange SPV E650 Review


So, the Orange SPV E650. Just an Orange version of the HTC S710 we reviewed, surely? Well, yes and no. Firstly, the keyboard is a different colour, we have the obligatory Orange logo and there's a distinct lack of Windows Live (no MSN Messenger fun...

Orange SPV E650 review


Since our HTC S710 vs Orange E650 video we've still not had any luck getting our hands back on a new Orange SPV E650 from Orange PR nor are we due an upgrade. However, our friend and long-time follower of the blog, Alasdair Ford, wrote...

A comprehensive smart phone, more application options would have been ideal


I chose the E650 from Orange based on the fact it was a Windows smartphone and I hoped to be able to find freeware for it. I last owned a Nokia N70 and really enjoyed the applications I could download.I transformed my phone into a tool for fun an...

I certainly wouldn't buy one again


Not a bad phone overall but a bit temperamental, some great features, Windows based so it syncs well, slide out keyboard etc.The biggest problem I have is that it keeps crashing, sometimes it does it without you noticing, it freezes up but you s...

Very slick and professional for a large phone


I have been more than happy with my purchase of the SPV E650. Lets start with the design... For a big phone, I find it quite slick and professional looking. I like the brushed black colouring and the silver details set it off. It also has...

Orange SPV E650


Excellent size, good slide out keyboard. Huge amount of features. Internet is a bit slow

Battery life is a daily charge if you use all the features like I do. Bundled headphones are awful. Both music players lack base but easily sync as does outlook
