Battery life is not good. This and other things I'm sure will be fixed in a firmware update. I can't wait to see what will be changed/fixed.
I don't even use half the features this phone has and still at the end of the day I only have about ½ battery left.
I have found something very strange about this phone! It cannot use MP3s for alarm tones. To my knowledge this is the only Sony phone like that. It lets you choose an MP3 for the alarm, but plays a default ringtone instead.
J, 22 Oct 2009This is by far the best phone I´ve ever had!J, could you please comment on the performance of this phone in terms of camera performance and battery life?? Thanks a lot..

Aino before, 23 Oct 2009i agree totally with you.
i don't understand what is the point of announcing a device like sa... moreYup.. Seems like SE needs to hire new people in its marketing department.. Don't announce something that you can't deliver on time.. And that too, in an unstable condition.. Bad work SE.. :(
GSMArena, what will take for you to review this phone? People have been requesting you again and again.. For SE's sake, PLEASE review the phone!!!!
Ritwik, 23 Oct 2009That is the only reasonable strategy they can have.. And yup, it's definitely good business to... morei agree totally with you.
i don't understand what is the point of announcing a device like satio at january and releasing it on October
has any1 asked SE to announce anything? we only need that you announce something after you finished it completely including stable firmware and after less than 1 month to be on the market.
also what is the point of releasing Aino in unstable firmware now?, has any 1 also aksed you to release it now?
release it when it is stable even after 2 months.
is it now good news for SE lovers to know that Aino firmware isn't stable. what SE has benefited from that?
they are going to lose even their lovers, and if Aino stayed on the market without firmware update for one more month Aino will lose its reputation for the incoming months. it will be listed in the bad list in people emotions and brains.
so wake up SE before you fall completely.
Gsmarena please the review does it need all that time to come up with a mobile review
aino before, 22 Oct 2009i assume that is the ongoing strategy by SE .
W 995 hasn't been on the market for very long t... moreThat is the only reasonable strategy they can have.. And yup, it's definitely good business to sell one phone at high price till its demand drops, then present the market with a phone with higher features and specs and stable firmware so that the demand for that phone increases and the company can have a stable selling profit index.. This way, SE can reduce the losses they have been incurring over the past few financial quarters..
Thinking strategically, it is not possible that the Aino won't have a major firmware update as it is the only way this product will be a hit among the masses.. All the work in R&D and construction of this model will be wasted.. And surely, SE won't let it happen.. Especially since they have already incurred such huge losses previously.. So the only logical step for now would be to release a good firmware update for Aino around 3 months from now, somewhere around in Jan 2010..

Hi, I am not sure about either this phone or the Satio but as looking for good camera and video recorder,
videos look good on you tube but not sure if aino will be same quality
any ideas, this is a video sample but maybe youtube makes it looks less quality
Ritwik, 22 Oct 2009W995 seems to be the perfect choice right now.. But things could change drastically after a fi... morei assume that is the ongoing strategy by SE .
W 995 hasn't been on the market for very long time.
it is only 5 months and in some countries it is only 2-3 months on the market, so coming with a better phone in features as Aino and having the same price will surely cause decline in W995 sales.
so their strategy is to try to leave w 995 for more time to be sold at the cureent price before its price declines sharply and then Aino got its place.
so how can they do it!!? by intentionally releasing faulty firmware on Aino and then give major update after few months.
SE will benefit from selling Aino at the 4th quarter and at christmas time to unaware customers and still W 995 will be sold since it outperforms Aino(without updated firmware) right now at its current price.
is that possible? it seems ridicilous but i think that is really the ongoing strategy.
if this assumption is right Aino will be a very Good phone,
if this is not right then Aino will be failure, what SE has been doing for the last 4 months since Aino announcement!!! only faulty firm.
poor market strategy SE

Anonymous, 22 Oct 2009hope they'll doquicker than 3 months :PI hope so too.. :)
jeejoo, 22 Oct 2009dear everyone,
i own a aino now.
it's quite not what i expected it to be. mostly of the am... morei have seen aino prototype and i appreciate your honest comments .
but dont forget that any phone that comes out in the market are full of bugs and these will be amended ones the phone is tested for real by the public.
this method is always there in the consumer engineering world were the manufactureres tend to use the public as a test site for their new released products .
hence any new product that enters the market is suggested not to be purchased immediatley and leave the manufacturer some time to review itas software and hardware and eventually the price will drop by time .
therefore i will onl,y purchase aino after 3 months and meantime sony ericsson would have corrected all the bugs .
i own a aino now.
it's quite not what i expected it to be. mostly of the amount of bugs to be found in the interface!
musicplayer skins and the multimedia touch menu have a lot of bugs in it, shutter and are slow. that is my first point made clear.
the second point i want to make, is that the musicplayer is far from useful. searching songs is so hard. the search function only uses the first word in a title and above that, the touch multimedia menu has NO search function, not even a list of traks, just a coverflow! so if you are looking for a song and you don't know the album, or don't have it in the song's details, you can't find it that easily!
also, when playing movies, the system slows down a LOT. even the movie itselfs shutters sometimes.
battery life is ppor, need to recharge every day. maybe because of the use of the bluetooth stereoheadset. which itself has a good battery.
camera functions are great, love the touch focus, is a little bit slow, but i don't mind.
haven't used PS3 supp yet due to operator changes, will do in 2 weeks :D that function must cover all this, else i would be terribly disappointed (as i am already, just imagine!)
the phone is stylish though, and the bluetooth headset is superior. the speaker in the phone has good quality, but is not stereo.
another disadvantage of the phone, is that when docked in the staion, you must turn off your phone to get acceptable transfer speeds. like 2.4 mb/sec otherwise like 500-1000 kb/sec :O
i really, really, really hope that good firmware upgrades will make this thing come alive, because to me, it seems a little bit dead or at least asleep.
