Sony Ericsson Aino review: I know fun - read the full textSony Ericsson are on the move recently and the Aino is very much part of the agenda. But living in the shadow of the Satio and X10 is not much fun we guess. So, the Sony Ericsson Aino is keen to live a double life...

> In reply to LG GD900 or SE Aino? @ 2009-12-04 21:18 from piNh - click to readSE is a better brand to trust than LG.
it definitely has better software and even reliable hardware, so it will count on the long run. SE stands for excellent music, camera and multimedia, if thats what u want.
compare specs and cost for a final decision, but its aino for me

i have been using this beauty for two weeks now >>a true masterpiece!!(very attractive in white colour)...touch is very responsive and fast especially with the new software update(also try the opera mini 5 browser)...image and video quality are quite superb and it shows when you zoom on images, and images save faster now(3-4 seconds) after the update...viewing images and videos on the 3 inch screen is spectacular especially the colours...sound quality is simply amazing whether u use the bluetooth headset or attach a fastport earphone(slightly better in fastport)..however i would advise u to use a sony earphone other than that supplied with the phone (as it's audio quality isn't quite satisfactory) and plug it into the bluetooth headset or fastport..battery is gud enough for me: lasts a day when paired with the bluetooth headset and all functions such as wifi, bluetooth, music, and internet are used..if used without the headset but with all other functions it lasts for about 2 play is at least 20 hours..dunno standby time cuz i cant get my hands off the phone...bluetooth headset is very stylish and plays music for 5-6 hours, but if only connected and used for calls or so lasts a day to two...desk charger is kool as well...sound quality through phone speakers during calls is very clear..
minor disadvantages: no 3.5 mm jack(not an issue to me), low voice in speakers(mono sound), no themes available yet, more touch capabilities would make it a super-phone(hopefully with software update), and i cant use play now functions here in egypt...
i hope i have provided u with useful info :)

I have had this phone about a month now - when I initially got it I was expecting it to be more like the samsung tocco ultra with full touchscreen and an optional slide... so was slightly disappointed that you barely use the touchscreen.
To be perfectly honest I am considering selling it and buying something else - I am finding it incredibly slow at loading up everything from messages to contacts. It freezes too which is annoying. It also takes so long to save a photo it's ridiculous! ... plus that if you or the subject moves even slightly it comes out blurry... for an 8MP camera it's not terribly impressive (I've seen better cameras on phones that are only 5MP) oh and if you use the flash the colour comes out totally weird.

It's a nice looking phone, but I'm guessing I was expecting more from it and have been disappointed.
