in south africa i paid R6300 at Altech Autopage. Phone is Vodacon\Vodafone branded.
I’m deciding between the nokia 5800xpress and the satio. Other than the obvious awesome camera, is it worth almost double the price in terms of performance?
Also, it runs Symbian 60, 5th edition just like the 5800, does that mean the satio is compatible with ovi like the nokia?
Thanks for helping me out.
YOU GOTTA LOVE IT!!!!!!thata all im saying,out of all the phones ever ever evr,sony ericson has been the trusted one when it comes to the actual phone giving problems...so beat that MR NOKIA,SAMSUNG,MOTO

X1 owner, 14 Dec 2009Ranking : 1- HTC HD2 2- SE X10 3- Satio 4- SE X2 5- Samsung Omnia 2 Stop ranking phones which have not even been released. This is the worst ratings one can do ... maybe this is your dream list but not the way rankings go ... ha ha! All phones are great in their own features and forms. OS, applications and hardware play an important role in determining all this. Just have 8mp or 12mp isn't going to decide a good phone. Grow up, we are in 2009!

All the phones you mentioned are carrier subsidized phones in the US. Satio does not fall under this category, There are huge numbers of good phones that do not come to the US because it is not subsidized, therefore too expensive...
This phone uses li-po battery, not li-ion. There's a little difference in characteristics between them. (end of part 1)

i dont know where some people have this weird theory that letting the phone die helps, it doesnt. it kills the battery faster than they'll ever know.

Most mobile phone batteries these days are lithium-based rather than nickel-based. While nickel batteries had to be charged for over 10 hours before first use (to prime the battery), lithium batteries only need to be charged until the mobile phone says the battery is full.
Don't let the battery run flat too often and apply regular charges
Another advantage of using a lithium battery is that it doesn't suffer from 'memory' -- a charging issue that affects nickel batteries.
A lithium battery can be charged whenever it needs it. Full discharges are not needed -- indeed, they are inadvisable. Instead, let the battery run down to around a third of its capacity and charge it on a regular basis rather than running the battery completely flat.

I live in Brazil. I have a Satio U1i, I bought in October. It is a wonder device. I have no criticism to make. Everything is perfect, besides being a beautiful and modern equipment in their lines. The only problem is receiving MMS pictures in small, about 5 kb. But this is the problem of operator VIVO not yet approved the device, so it made adjustments in their servers MMS.
Just ignore the bad comments and dont bite (You`ll make it worse)
i have satio and payed no attention to any comments here.
What are they for???
