Anonymous, 30 Oct 2009I agree! SE phones are buggy and unreliable! Samsung sold over 10 million 5230!!!! over ... moreNo one gives a sh*t about Samsung sales because those phones are just lame and designs are disgusting! And FYI, gsmarena says that VGA recording is the best in Satio, the TFT is bright and clear, and the taktime is 11hours which is really long. SE phones has these really cool, sexy, and funky design that are reliable with the best imaging and music experience ever. SE's going up now. And that upcoming XPERIA X3 with 1GHZ processor, muti-touch large display, and a lot more of those stuff is way cool. Those Samsung bricks will now be outdated and always be ugly!

Sony Ericsson is really well known for their best imaging experience. And the price is actually quite reasonable for their really cool features and those funky designs which are way cool which are reliable. The Omnia has sorta the same thing used but its features are way less. No Xenon, Open GL, interface is f*ckin ugly, and the design is so.. yuck!
Indeed, the megapixel war has ended. A new war is about to begin when camphone will fight using optical zooms and bigger sensors. But still, SE still have their strong points. For example, they produce the best music phone to date. Don't believe me? Check out w995. Secondly, their interface layout is very pleasing to the eye though it's just a gimmick =P And ya, SE is famous for producing handsets which have long talktime and this is a great advantage.
But it's biggest drawback would have to be mediocre camera performance, unrealiable(e.g k850i, c905i etc), lack of 3.5mm jack,no mico/mini USB port and also cost way too much for mediocre build and feature. The satio is made up mainly of plastic so I don't see any reason why it should it priced at 500 euro. Omnia HD which has more or less the same build quality can be obtained at the cheaper price.
If SE really wish to shine again, then it seriously need to look at themselves and start to take drastic action to tackle consumers complains.
oh lawd here we go again if u all dont like the phone jus dont buy it no matter nothing is perfect so all u nokia,samsung,lg ppl who are pretending to be se fans and bashing se go and enjoy ur forum where everything is perfect se good luck its always dark before the dawn
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2009my 3 years sony phone is better than your iphone. better images . better music ,better style. ... morei dont have an iphone lol, and about the sales. im saying even if its 10000000000X better than the iphone, it wont have all the deserved hype

Very good phone. It beats the Samsung Pixon12 Hands on for Versatility, Design, Camera (Who cares?, it's a phone) and usability, UI the Satio clearly wins hands down.
Samsung have created hype over the Pixon12 but really that phone isn't as Versatile and usable as this Satio!
Wymark, 30 Oct 2009Disappointing, which i hate to say being a sony fan. Greatest weakness was always going to be/... moreI agree!
SE phones are buggy and unreliable!
Samsung sold over 10 million 5230!!!! over 10 million!!!
it is a very basic model, but reliable!
LG makes some good phones!
SE can not keep up with technology! No quality control!
ALL manufacturing is outsourced - so even a decent design can not be wekk made . but where is the decent design?
are does not cut it anymore!
Disappointing, which i hate to say being a sony fan. Greatest weakness was always going to be/and is the operating system. Glitchy and slow, eg same as nokia 5800 when turning from portrait to landscape in sms etc the screen just goes blank which considering when bugdet stuff like the s5230 can do it quick and easy. Hardware is mega but the build feels cheap and tacky. The mega pixel wars are over, things have changed.
Sepehr, 29 Oct 2009If you want to update your satio just download the phone updater from here:(about 35MB)
http:... moreThanks for your help. I tried this and it states I have the latest software so just had to deal with the fact that the audio quality from recording videos is terrible I must add this might only be ones sold by Vodafone todo with whatever custom software they add.
Fingers crossed it might get better in future up updates as maybe they just need to raise the mic volume but when you compare to N95 audio from videos its embarrasing how poor it really is.
Anyone having problems with the camera? Mine struggles to focus and gets blurred pictures, especially at night. But also, it gets strange circles/dots both in good and bad light. Its going back, but I don't know whether or not to try another.
Bash, 29 Oct 2009You're right. If you get used to SE, you would find it user-friendly, but this takes more time... morestudy ur history dawg it is persian gulf and userfriendlyness depends on the particular phone u cant judje a company
Arak, 29 Oct 2009yesw i agree now , but in the camera of sony ericssons are not bad at all , yes the video is l... morecompletely right but not gulf, persian gulf see it on as i dont say sea to the black sea
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970ok you might stell the name of persian gulf for urself as you stole my grammer and just change the place of satio and pixon keep up changing the truth
truth will shoe itself and it doesnt care,so watch out
To all you doubting thomas:
I have had my Satio for nearly 3 weeks now and it is everything i expected it to be. No problems at the moment and i am still getting used to the S60 area of things.
Being a new device S60v5 the apps will come soon and i wont need to FORCE incompatible software into the phone. (i am sure thats why some people are having their issues)
10/10 IMHO - Keep it up Sony Ericsson : YOU ROCK!!
On Cell Phone since , 29 Oct 2009SE has done it again; A very promising product and a total (almost) still born failure. It's ... moreWhat you said is interesting, some people said they bought the Satio, and it is GOOD. And you come here and say it is a BAD phone! I can't believe you, and all the SE fans can't believe this. SE made mistakes on the past, but this model can't be a bad phone.
