Improved hardware, including screen and controls
Patchy Orange coverage
Lack of SIM/SMS Information service
Having had an original Orange SPV, I was pleased overall with the Orange SPV E200 mobile phone.
Having only had the SPV E200 for a few days, the only really bad thing is the battery life.
With any phone these days, I don't think it's too much to expect a half-decent battery life.
This was a problem with the SPV too, but with the E200 having more features, it is something that is important and as the battery life is on my SPV E200, it really does let the phone down.
The other letdown is accessories - although there are plenty of Bluetooth accessories available. But simple basic things such as an in-car charger don't seem to be available (yet).
Overall, I like the E200 but I am very disappointed with the battery.
