Bad: excessively slow processor very little phone memory
Comment: i bout this about a year ago after loosing my old phone, it started off fast enough but now it crawls along unable to consistently send texts or make calls without crashing. this is after disabling as many apps as I can including Facebook who's updates filled the entire phone memory
Good: compact size, lot for your money, good value
Bad: camera not very good
Comment: good phone for not a lot of money. light and compact lots of features, battery life reasonable if not using wifi. had the phone for 4 months bought as temporary replacement but keeping it for a bit longer. only annoyance is sometimes runs slow and camera is poor very grainy
Comment: I dont know if i should buy orange stockholm or orange sydney help?
Good: It's good for young people
Comment: It has small screen making it easy for screw ups when tipping and because of the small size few games are going to work on it.
The CPU speed is just horrible making you want to get an app to make it run faster , and you have to change the software to one that can at least delete the permanent apps.
Also it feels dumb when needing more space because you can't type, and they used so much space just for the name and 2 almost useless buttons that could have been easily placed in the gaps between the 3 buttons that are just below the screen, and that stripe at bottom of the phone just uses a lot of space that could have been used for the screen.
Overall it' could have been a lot better as a phone but as always orange blew it and made an almost useless phone for someone that uses it more for relaxing when bored.
Good: It has a good GPS..
Bad: The small screen and keyboard.
Comment: The small screen and keyboard really annoys me because when I go to type things, my fingers aren't small enough for the minuscule letters literally sat next to each other.
Good: android 2.2
Bad: orange added bad aplications,and locks
Comment: What happens if I use the phone "factory data reset"?
Comment: I cant get the font to go bigger. Theres nothing stating on the books how to do it and nothing on the phone to tap to make it bigger. The buttons on the outside are for the ringtone volume. Anyone know of how to do it?
Good: small, lightweight, cheap
Bad: ORANGE ADDED SO MANY APPS!! SOOOOO SLOW!
Comment: Got it and it was very good for people on a budget but orange put sooooo many apps on it so it runs really slow plus you cant delete half of them!
Good: Small, light, CHEAP
Bad: Slow, tiny screen, flimsy back cover feel
Comment: Bought this to tide me over while my Desire HD is off getting it's screen fixed.
First impressions - horrible* in it's fresh from the box form with all the Orange-ware, but easy to root and seems to have responded well to installing a custom ROM of 2.3.7.
Instructions for all the above here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1259739
Available second hand for £30 now (from cex.co.uk), I reckon this is a cracking budget phone.
*not that horrible, just slow and clunky and ORANGE as hell!
Good: android system
Comment: (Courtenay Andrew)thank you so much your instructions really helped me i have done it thank you again i love you.
