Orange San Francisco II from Orange down to £50

This has to be the deal of the year (once more), probably besting the Xperia U bargain that’s currently running at E2Save. Orange is selling the San Francisco II smartphone from as little as £49.99. That excludes delivery (1p) and an extra compulsory £10 topup.

But you do get a free pair of WeSC headphones which are apparently worth as much as the phone itself. Note that you can also unlock the phone for free.

At £50, the Orange San Francisco II stands firmly above the rest of the competition. It has a 3.5in 800x480 pixels resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-chip, the MSM7227, clocked at 800MHz, 512MB of RAM, 2GB onboard storage with 2GB microSD card slot, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Signal Boost technology, a 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 4.5 hours talk time and a number of Orange apps.

The OSF II is the follow up to the popular ZTE Blade or Orange San Francisco Mk1 which was the first budget smartphone to come with a 800x480 resolution, 512MB of RAM and an AMOLED display.

Rivals to the Orange San Francisco II smartphone include the LG Optimus L3, the Sony Xperia Miro and the Motorola Smart.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
