Sony Ericsson Aspen review: Tree-hugging business

Sony Ericsson Aspen review: Tree-hugging business - read the full textThe Aspen may well be the phone youíre least likely to expect from Sony Ericsson. To begin with, itís a PocketPC but shuns comparison to the XPERIA line. On a second thought though Ė itís a concept that can be traced way back in...

this is the worst phone ever by sony ericsson. just to mention few things
:bad processor
software keeps hanging
if you do anything with the downloading of any application. the software starts behaving weirdly resulting in shutdowns.
customer support has no idea about the phone. they know only one thing and that is to format the phone n give it back to you.

in short will never ever buy anything new from sony.
thank you sony for cheating us.

I had purchase sony Aspen M1i for its windows version but I am disappointed as during working on Excel and Work mobile gets hanged and compulsorily have to restart and use it. Its camera also gets hanged during clicking. Finally no Call Voice Recorder software supports WINDOWS hence it cannot record any calls, which is now a days very much important.

Have been using this for work about three weeks now. This phone really sucks. The UI is unbelievably un-intuitive, the phone is so slow, the touchscreen annoyingly unresponsive and the "pen" just makes it feel like we are back in 2001 again. My rating is at 1-2/10 points.

I've got something strange happening to my aspen. Outgoing calls go blank in about 30 seconds and incoming calls get connected but I cannot hear anyone. Help anyone?

If you live in Hong Kong - as I do - you will find that Nokia can no longer supply keyboards on smartphones without chinese characters. This makes each key very crowded and is the reason why I'm quitting Nokia after 10 years +

looks nice. Just hope that its not as horrible as the New Nokia E Series. E71 and below still better than the latest range.

I read whole review. I think gsmarena has highlight more negative point to Aspen which hides the positive point of aspen. I think the Aspen is good phone with balance of both world.

I am agree with GSMarena on following points.....

1. Fairly customized but inconsistent UI
2. No secondary video-call camera
3. Poor still imaging and video, no flash
4. Basic Audio player (Not expected from SE)
5. 3.2 mp camera (At least it will be come with auto focus)
6. Win Pro 6.5.3 os while winMo 7 is on its way.

I am not agree with GSMarena on following points...

1. Small Screen (Even E71 has smaller screen than Aspen)
2. Not a Good looking phone (I think its a great looking phone in shape and has minimal chrome effect.White color is awesome. I saw some phones (in india) with stainless steel effect on body has rubbed their finish.)
3. Vedio at 15 FPS. (Most of this type of phone has 15 fps recording form competition)
4. I would expect some more in depth review on flash supported web browsing from gsmarena.

As Customer i would like to see 3.2 mp camera with flash and auto focusing, a better os ( if possible winMo 7 of Aneroid based)
