Anonymous, 04 Dec 2009Satio simply disappointed in terms of its OS. It's a proof that sometimes big players get nerv... moreIf it had run Android it would have been delayed... Not until android 2.0 it support higher end cameras, and still not that good.
For the X10 SE has made an kamera app, that seems good, but X10 is not out for a few months...
In the begining Satio was supposed to run the new Symbian OS... that is yet to show up.
SE + WinMob still hasnt been a good experience.
So what OS could they have used?
But what do I get the Satio or wait for X10? I just hope the X10 dont have the same problems satio did.
Michael Tawroginski , 04 Dec 2009SonyEricsson as brand going up to bancrupsy.I use over 2 years this brand C902,k850,c902 and f... moredude r u high or wat.....BADA isn't out yet...maemo just got released...and AMOLED just exists in samsung mobiles.....when did we enter the AMOLED era??????? and whats with the crap phones and stuff.......a SE fanatic never leaves SE and u definitely sound as if you were paid......SE has always lived up to our expectations (i admit that last few years were bad....but the X1 rocked and the W910 among others....the W995 is still the best music phone........whats with u.....
i'm using it and i guess that the call waiting (beep) and the battery low (beep) sound is heared by the other one you are talking with. somehow i feel it annoying :(
SonyEricsson as brand going up to bancrupsy.I use over 2 years this brand C902,k850,c902 and finally SATIO,all those phones are no good enough.I was fanatic of SE,what they done?-NOTHING!!!No enough innovation in mobile industry,no own platform(like samsung BADA or NOKIA maemo)since 2008 in debt,no good screens in mobiles(we have AM OLED ERA)etc...And only 5% in all market shares,i thing SAMSUNG is the BEST!And i use SAMSUNG H1,this is the PHONE!!!
it was pulled only in UK and not all over the world and that majore selsment company announced many wrong and fals things.
i see it faster too, and more touch responsive. other thing is faster ringtone when called (before it vibrates For 2 - 4 seconds before ringing).
Still need to change a lot of things.
- Keyboard layout
- Volume key to change music and volume when locked
- Music player able to change audio settings
- Music player able to not mix ringtones with regular music
- Clock on standby
- volume key to show status
- File manager (i think file manager on windows 3.1 was a lot better. I miss the regular Sony Ericsson file manager)
- and so on, so on
Except for the software problems the Satio has no 3.5mm audio jack (deal breaker on high end phone). I personally do not like the "beer belly", but I guess some people do. Hopefully Sony Ericsson will correct this with their next 12mp phone.
Satio simply disappointed in terms of its OS. It's a proof that sometimes big players get nervous under extreme pressures. It could have been the "Killer set", if it had another OS, like Android.
there where never major problems, this things been out in the real world and people bought it
carphone house probably got annoyed at the returns so they just took it off making SE act fast
but the rest of the world just uses the phone normally, camera, music, wifi etc, there weren't any problems
now when SE dont release the phone, than comes the problem like if X10 gets delayed than even if it is perfect it won't matter cause its not there!
The Satio was not actually recalled by S/E. It was a decision by Carphone Warehouse to stop selling them due to the software issues that had been experienced by their customers, causing so many returns of this type of handset. Once the software has been tested to a satisfactory level, Carphone Warehouse will start selling again.
I can understand why such a high profile release has been slated though, with so many problems that the Satio had.
There must have been something seriously wrong that SE want to keep quiet otherwise they wouldn't have done a product recall.
I suspect it may well have been to do with security, a vulnerability that may have compromised the OS or the users details.
I suspect that we'll never know.
This update seems to have no noticeable changes, suggesting only behind-the-scenes fixes. The transitions on the Sony Ericsson standby screen seem faster, and that's about it.
Although you should use the internal backup app (within file manager) before doing the update, it should retain all of the data and settings after the update. Don't trust it not to go wrong though, so do that backup anyway!
