hi all. a year ago I put Samsung U900, NOKIA E63, and then moved to E66, and E71. it all happened in just 5 months. I was boredom or maybe there is something else. it's like to have a phone that has everything, especially in terms of data communications, camera and of course gaming adequate support. since first introduced sonyericsson Aino and satio, I instantly fell in love. and now, finally Aino in my hand. in spite of all opinions, whether positive pitched and pitched tune. Aino is U10i communication devices that can be relied upon. thanks SE.
ashraf, 07 Jan 2010yes it is difficult decision i was confused about either w 995 or aino for a while i finally ... moremmmmmm thats why i'm confused! i dont know i hav'nt decided yet! i'm in love with the aino for its look! but i dont know i'm readnig the reviews and its confusing!!! 10xxxx anyway for ur help :D:D:D
I read all this bad reviews about the Aino and I was actually going to purchase it. Now I am lost.
So there is no way for me to pick up a call when the phone is closed?
The only way a touch screen works is with the media menu ?

So, this is the situation...... moreThanks for the advise :) anonymous,
By the way I wrote that I am looking at the XPERIA x2 , not the x1 :)
I know it is out of date. It is just hard to pick up, because I hate ending up with a sucky phone :)
k.n.d, 09 Jan 2010Hi guys, just wondering. Why is there alot of comments about problems for aino? Is the Aino re... moreI suggest you to experience it yourself, pretty impressive as far as i am concerend
Tanya, 09 Jan 2010hey people :)
I just need to ask for few opinions. I am on the search for a new phone. Curr... moreHai Tanya, this is People here... (you greeted People, right?)
So, this is the situation.... if the choice are limited to Xperia 1, W995, and Aino, then Aino is the most compromising item to meet all needs you mentioned. This is why:
1. It's a Sony Ericsson (your main requirement, right?)
2. Comparing to W995, Aino has the touchscreen, though only limited, and buttons as well...while W995 doesn't have that touchscreen, you can touch the screen but nothing will happen (since it's not touchscreen, heheheh). Beside, aino is equipped with that great great great 16 Million Colors display, just put some nice wallpapers out there then you'll have the most gorgeous phone that will let others in jealousy, believe me.
3. Xperia X1 is out of date now, I think it's a little bit too late to buy it now, if you really need something from Xperia family, then i suggest you to go for X2 or X10.
C'mon Tanya, grab an Aino immediately
Hey guys, I've been reading around and am considering 2 phones at the moment. Im looking mainly at the camera and the pricing...
Do you guys think Aino or C905 (both SE) is better?
i used my friends aino and compeltly fell in love w/it i have a iphone 3g 8gb and im tryna sell it on craigstlist then im totaly buying aino white
hey people :)
I just need to ask for few opinions. I am on the search for a new phone. Currently I am using the SE W810i and I am happy with it, but it is time to upgrade. I had LG K990 viewer but it sucked big time. I guess what I need is a phone that has wi-fi, touch screens and buttons as well. The touch screen is not so necessary. The buttons and wi-fi are a must :) And it has to be SE.
I was deciding between XPERIA X2, Aino or W995 ...
What do you guys think ? I am so lost...Please give me advise.
Hi guys, just wondering. Why is there alot of comments about problems for aino? Is the Aino really good or what?
ashraf, 07 Jan 2010yes it is difficult decision i was confused about either w 995 or aino for a while
i finally ... moreW995 probably got way much better features than Aino with sensible price as well, but did you know what makes me went on buying aino instead of w995...?
Did you notice the white line in each side of W995's square display...?
I don't know, somehow those lines didn't feel right to me, it's kinda reducing w995's credit of beauty in my perspective.
It's just that simple...but for me it's decisive, really.
Terminator, 08 Jan 2010QUESTION FOR WHITE AINO users!!!
I saw it for real today and I was badly surprised that it ha... moreWhere did you get that information,...?
I'll confirm you that SE Aino has the best physical design (both black and white, but i prefer the white)among all handset up to this very day. Trust me.
If you put style in the highest order, Aino won't disappoint you, infact it will make you proud
hello friends..i would like to know is there any possibility that aino supports full touch operation by maybe upcoming firmware upgrades or getting jailbroken or something like that..coz its such a waste having a stunning capacitive screen but cant do throughout touch operation
mosd, 08 Jan 2010absolutely not; they only make it more attractive :)
@ ashraf: I'm not quite sure if you've... morei repect ur opinion and i confess i was after aino for a while.
i have already bought w 995 after many many comparisons i do know that aino is still good one.
but for me it isn't practical to slide open the phone for every minute setting i want to make.
to initate a call i have to slide to change ring tone to open wifi to read the message.,
in the 1st few days after purchasing new phone you stay for a while orgainising things and checking and enabling and disabling settings just imagine how many times you are going to slide open the phone.
this is not practical.
i do know it is semitouch i think aino will not do good in sales.
also battery in aino isn't good
so what is left in favour of Aino vs W 995.
may be only the camera is somehow better than w 995 but has only simple features doesn't have smile detection etc...
again i think that the difference between Aino and w 995 price isn;t in the phone itself it is in the accessories sold with aino.
And about the battery, does it last at least 2 days if no wifi,gps and gms only??
One reason for swaping from satio is battery life.
Also can you play games screen closed?

@ ashraf: I'm not quite sure if you've tried the aino hands-on...Yes the phone does support only a few functions with the slider closed(camera, photo gallery, video gallery, music player, and radio)..But these are probably enough..You do know afterall that you're purchasing a semi-touch phone, so you wouldn't expect all functions to be availavle in touch mode...So to use the menus, settings, make callas etc you will have to slide the phone open. The phone does, hovever, support touch applications such as opera mini browser and ebuddy which work pretty well...
I love my Aino :)
@sara: go for white (haven't seen the black one to be honest)..oh and try and cut on the "bas" :P
