4.0 out of 5 stars A cheap smart phone that surprises you with its feature list!, 9 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Orange San Francisco Pay As You Go Mobile Phone including £10 Airtime - White (Electronics)
Having cost a penny under a £100, the mobile is truly above my expectations; having wifi ,3G, a 3 MEGA PIXEL camera, blue tooth, a decently fast web browser and full access to the android web market and coming with an android operating system. I have never owned a smart phone before, but the list of features is amazing.

The body of the phone is made of a white, hard plastic that seems quite tough. It may look a bit tacky to some, but having owned a line of black and drab normal mobiles since I bought my first one, I thought I might as well get some a bit more vivid! The screen is very, very sharp for its small size and text and photos etc appear with just the right amount of contrast and brightness. Obviously you can change the screens brightness from the menu if you want a brighter/darker screen though. I have read that this is the first sub £100 capacitive touch screen phone (same one as used on the £300+ iphone 4), and it is very good. I have an itouch as well, and while it is not quite as accurate as the apple product, it comes very close which is surprising given that the itouch was almost double the price when it was bought last year. I would recommend if you use facebook/youtube a lot on your old mobile,, to buy the "dolphin" orange deal, which gives you 100 Meg of free internet every time you top up £10, as well as 300 texts.

The operating system is nice and quick when you click on an icon (quite firmly it must be said sometimes though), but it does take a while to boot up, but seeing as this is basically a mini computer, I guess it would. Another slight annoyance is a tendency sometimes to have 2 or fewer signal bars (even though I live near the centre of a large city, however this only happens on occasion, so it's not a deal breaker.

Overall, this is an excellent phone for the price. If you want a cheap but certainly not rubbish touch screen mobile for just under £100, then I would recommend this one.
