Posh Mobile's Orion is a cheap dual-SIM disappointment
Hi I'm Sara Mitroff with cnet.
And today I'm taking a first look at the Posh Mobile Orion Pro.
The Orion Pro is a budget android handset from Posh Mobile.
A relatively new smartphone brand that sells low cost phones in the US and Latin America.
The most notable feature of the Orion Pro is that it has two sim card slots.
Which lets you use the phone on two different networks at the same time.
You'll find the two sim card slots behind the back cover, right behind the battery.
The phone is rather large and bulky with a five inch display.
The screen is unfortunately very low res for its size at just 540 by 980 pixels.
The Orion Pro is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and doesn't come with many software bells and whistles.
There's the standard Google apps and Posh Mobile threw in its own marketplace as apps and games.
Inside, the Orion Pro is packing a 1.3 gigahertz MediaTek processor, 1 gigabyte of RAM and 4 gigabytes of internal storage.
You can add an additional 32 GB of storage with the micro SD card.
There's a five megapixel camera and VGA front facing and neither take great photos.
At $149 unlock and off contract, the Orion Pro is a steal.
However, its underpowered specs and weak camera hurt this phone's appeal.
You can read my full review of the Orion Pro on cnet.com.
I'm Sarah Mitroff, and as always, thanks for watching.
