Orange San Francisco or ........

Found 20th Dec 2010
Am looking for a touchscreen phone ,don't know much about them just fancy one,I like the look.

I am with O2 (V3i Razor) and am happy to stay with them, I started off looking at the tocco lite but after a few days surfing the consensus seems to be that the San Fran. is the best deal (already found out u can unlock for free).and in stock at argos.

I can just stretch to £100ish.

Mostly to use for calls and texting but will be handy to check emails but not interested at all in twitter facebook etc.

also quite like the ZTE Racer

It looks to be easily the best buy, my only worry is that I dont actualy need that good a phone for my needs and something like the tocco lite would do me at £45 @TCW

Brought My wife and daughter a San Fransisco for xmas and had a play while the batteries were charging. And I am VERY impressed with it for a £100 phone. Feels fairly snappy to me.

Not sure about other phones, but the battery life is not too clever on the san fransisco.......only lasted about 8 hours and had to recharge, and was not using it that much!!!

What about the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini

well I decided to go for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini, but nobody was offering any discounts on o2 and I was getting peeved off fighting the xmas eve crowds,went to argos to get a san francisco and they were out, so was going to compromise and get the LG viewty on o2 for £79, but spotted the smallest orange shop in the world with 2 bored assistants and no customers (carphonewarehouse was packed), the place looked like it was about to close down.

Anyhow being full of cold I mumbled have you got a san francisco... "yes one left" and she showed me it.



Honesty it made the viewty look like a bit of plastic, sod the reviews it looks worth about £400, the assistant asked me the best price I had been quoted and I said £100 at argos (actually £109), so she said she would match it and she said nowt about top ups at which point I noticed the box said £10 preloaded, so it cost me £90.

The best bit after playing for the last 4 hours I checked without much hope and its an OLED screen , what a result well happy.


Unlocked in 5 mins for free @unlock

Oh by the way happy xmas
