San Diego from Orange (Intel Inside / Android Smartphone) Review

By all accounts the Orange San Fransisco was a phone that proved very popular. It managed to find a nice balance of price, perfomance and features at a time when smartphones were really taking off and allowed those on a limited budget to experience the new generation of phones that were hitting the market. The San Fransisco wasn’t Oranges first venture into the world of own brand handsets though, thinking back a few years they had another decent seller on their hands, the SPV which ran a Windows OS and for its time was a very nice device.

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 the norm, right from the outset. Today we have a San Diego handset on our test bench to find out if it can follow on from the success of Orange’s previous devices and whether it is desirable in a very crowded marketplace.


Packaging and Bundle

The familiar Orange branding and colour scheme is present on the packaging for the San Diego but interestingly no note of Intel features on the front. Inside we find the phone suspended in a cardboard tray and covered with a helpful screen protector which lets us know how to turn the phone one. Box artwork also explans some features to us too.

Orange San Diego bundle

In a compartment below the phone we find the bundled extras and these include the product documentation, charger, USB cable, sim tray tool and earphones.
