Does the guy who claims this phone is bad because TCL is a chinese company, who TCL is? Aparently he doesn't. TCL is one of the largest and more important electronics companies in the world. Working in ventures with Samsung, Alcatel and IKEA, just to mention a few. Do you think Alcatel, Samsung and IKEA would allow to "charge with old hardware" any of their products? Come on! One thing is "old hardware" and another is "affordable hardware". At this point of technological advance and market competition is stupid to think "the expensive is the best"...
haha. the image was from Jarir Bookstore a company in Saudi Arabia. See the SR it means Saudi Riyal.
Alcatel is now a Chinese company, not French. The are charging twice as much as UMI but with old hardware.

Lucian, 08 May 2013I can't find it on Orange Romania website. Can you please give the link?Codename: San Remo
its shameful name idol,just cause of that dont care what kind of phone is cause the name is disgusting
50-70 apps, fill up 50% of the internel storage, gpu it's even﻿ worse than the Adreno 205
probably lag like a nightmare
The GPU on the MTK6577 SoC is now standard on many Chinese phones, clones or originals alike
very bad optimized
1800 mAh battery probably feels more like 1200-1400
