i like the idea of this phone, fast cpu/gpu, decent screen, decent camera's, cheap, etc.

the only thing's missing are sim unlock (essential) and custom roms, ideally i'm looking to upgrade at around christmas time, hopefully by then we will have a nice selection of fully stable roms's.

until then, i dont think many are going to be interested in this phone, unless they are on orange or t mobile already.

interested to see how this stacks up against a Monte Carlo, better in every way apart from slightly smaller screen i would think

can you take a few comparison shots with other mobile phones? borrow your friends and families for 2 mins and take quick snap, so we can see it beside another phone

What is the battery performance like on this, will it last a day? I have read somewhere that the Intel processor will throttle itself when not in use (stand by) but when it comes to actually using the device for playing video it will use more power causing the battery to drain quick :mellow:

Can you if possible from a fully charged battery set a video to play on loop and see how long it takes before it shutdown or starts complaining about low battery? try using a video file that the default video player can play please thanks :)


T3 did this and got 202minutes out of a full battery by looping video. Although I do suspect they used a player than was using software decoding as they mentioned the CPU running 100% and getting hot. If you use MoboPlayer with the x86 add-on then it should be a lot better

There isn't really much competition tbh, and in my experience the San Diego stomps all over the Monte Carlo. For a start, the San Diego has flash and iPlayer (the lack of which drove me to ditch the Monte Carlo as my main phone in the first place) and it's far faster and smoother all round. The screen size difference is sort of noticeable but it isn't a massive issue and I kind of think the higher resolution of the San Diego mostly makes up for the lower size. The extra £80 gives you vastly more phone.

None of that is to say the Monte Carlo is a bad phone, but nowadays for what it is it's way overpriced (the Huawei G300 has a more powerful processor and can do flash for £19 less than the Monte Carlo costs) and it's simply not as good.

Pretty much. Certainly it isn't worth the money they charge for it now when you can get the G300 for £100, and I think they are being a bit cheeky in keeping the price of both the OMC and the San Fran II at the same level when the G300 costs the same and the San Diego is far better and costs £80-90 more.
