This Orange Stockholm– mini-review will be a short frank review that has only one purpose; to let you know how see this terminal.
I just became acquainted with this smartphone through the child of a friend. I say that is the first mobile phone equipped for those who possess a smartphone for the first time and if a fifth grader can use it anyone could.
In terms of design there is a silver edge around the phone. The predominant color is black with a plastic battery casing. In the upper part you have a 3.5 mm jack, power button and the abode for opening the battery cover – a simple method through which you gain access to the battery, the microSD card slot and the SIM card. In the lower part, on the sides there is the microUSB port and on the right side the keys for volume control. The important thing for me is that this model seems to be a fighter against scratches.
In terms of screen & sound, the screen is a TFT of 2.8 inch diagonal, with 240 x 320 pixels and 256k colors. It provides quick access to Menu, Messages, Calls and Contacts. There are three buttons with roles such as Back, setting the display and search. The sound comes from a tiny speaker on the back next to the camera sensor. The fat from the fingers accumulates fairly quickly. The hardware offers an internal memory of 512 MB but it supports microSD cards up to 32GB which is a big plus. A microSD would help completing the need for storage space for as many songs as needed.
The operating system is a great bonus as it runs Android 2.2 Froyo and is translated into the regional language where the terminal is sold. It has a collection of buttons to help navigate through the menu and also provides access to Android Market with more than 250,000 applications. Some of them will not run due to less powerful hardware or low resolution of only 240 x 320 pixels.
As for connectivity, the Stockholm offers a complete package – 3G data transfer at 7.2 Mbps, Wi-Fi b / g, microUSB and Bluetooth 2.0. Above all these, the camera is a 3.15 mega pixels camera which is better than the competition, which is limited to only 2 mega pixels. It knows how to record videos but I do not recommend to rely on these features if you want quality.
The 1200 mAh battery made me reluctant to clarify because I did not really tested it. I suspect that will not last too long to use via 3G or Wi-Fi applications as it’s capacity is low.
