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?
Terminator, 08 Jan 2010QUESTION FOR WHITE AINO users!!!
I saw it for real today and I was badly surprised that it ha... moreabsolutely not; they only make it more attractive :)
@ 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

Since you have both the W995 and the Aino, which one would you say is better? I like the design of the Aino but I'm also worried about the problems people have commented on...can you please let me know? Thanks
QUESTION FOR WHITE AINO users!!!
I saw it for real today and I was badly surprised that it has rose side lines, so my question is: does it make it girly???
jennica, 07 Jan 2010does facebook applications work on this oneyes facebook application come preloaded with the set
sarah, 07 Jan 2010hey!
i just wanna ask u what do u think: should i bye the sonny ericsson w995 or the aino?? p... moreyes it is difficult decision i was confused about either w 995 or aino for a while
i finally choosed w 995.
so in my point of view the decisive point in choosing w 995 is that
1) you can't use Aino phone at all when it is slide closed, you can't use any function on the phone while it is slide closed except only media touch enabled
2) battery isn't that good w 995 battery in last charge by moderate use( means use wifi, listen to music , calling, sending text messages) and it stands around 4 days or less more.
you can weight both batteries on your hand and you will discover surprisingly that w 995 battery weight is more than the one in Aino although in Aino it is 1000 mah while in w 995 is only 930
may be Aino is good looking but if you look at the silver colour of w 995 it is also very brilliant.
anyway good luck in ur choice

jennica, 03 Jan 2010is facebook application really working in aino...please have a responseyes mine works well, dont have any issue using facebook. im enjoying every moment of it.
I had this fone for a month now and i don't have any problem or regret. im enjoying every moment i use it. love the sound quality, the bass really kick in. the camera is excellent. just go to sony ericsson website and download the user guide and read well and you can fully enjoy all the functions of this fone.coz the user guide in the box of this fone lacks a lot of information i DONT HAVE ANY PROBLEM connecting the wifi to any coffee shop, so all in all im really satisfied w/ this fone. as long as u know how to use the full function of this fone.
vijay, 06 Jan 2010how can i do video conferencing when there is no secondary camera ??sorry without second camera its impossible 2 go for videoconfrencing
This phone is SHOCKING. I have already returned it and am fighting to have a replacement, rubbish dont waste your time. been using SE for 10+ years, camerea is poor as not cyber shot and not proper flash only LED. Part touch screen sticks, kicks you out from functions cos it is half touch screen half not, takes ages to lock so find it opening in hand bag taking photos-battery life non existent, WIFI Connection doesnt happen! SO SLOW genreally awful!!!!
This and the satio are amazing. the LG crystal is good too, the samsung QWUERTY (omniapro) is outstanding but a little bit more expensive.
