Been using this for about 2 months now (got on release day in UK).

Battery is ok, nothing special but not show stopping.

Screen is AMOLED and wonderful, for the price I paid it's a spectacular phone and definitely budget phone of they year.

Processor is ARM6 btw.

There has to be something wrong with this phone, how else could this cost under 200?

GSMArena, please review this mysterious thing!

And an LCD screen, I bet..seems to be the european norm, a crippled SF(Blade).

The easiest would be to find the original rom (or any 2.1 rom which has the market app inside) packed as an update.zip. Just unzip it and search for Vending.apk

But can't say for sure, as there are a few different european versions, mostly based on the chinese Blade, with lower ram and poorer screen.
I know there's one with a bigger camera sensor(5mp), but the quality is the same.

I think different..I'm sure it's 256meg ram, and an lcd screen not oled.

Anyone knows if the specs of the Blade sold in Portugal by Optimus (I think it's sold by the model name of San Francisco) are the same as the specs presented here?

No, it's not mandatory to show it, it's mandatory to show what safety checks it's passed, and it does that in the manual.

For the specific SAR value, Orange can tell you that, but the manual does specify that it has passed all checks, and is within the limit.

Can we get a review of this up soon please. Looking to buy this for Christmas. What are people's opinions on the MP3 and also video playback from this phone? Bearing in mind I will definitely sticking a custom ROM on there.

Bought as the San Francisco.
Very pleased. Performs without fault. It will be better when the OS is upgraded to 2.2. First touch screen/ Android so no benchmark to compare it with. 21-11-10.
