sushant, 23 Oct 2010hi michael....wanna buy aino.pls tell me abt its performance.......abt its speaker quality and... morei decided to repost this review on the Aino (from an 10 month owner) passing by all the questions have been asked 2 me...
i bought the full gadget Aino...the one with the BT headset & stand charger plus 8GB micro SD MC.(now there's been an Aino classic with 2 GB MC & without the headset & the stand charger but all the same phone)
i'll start with the software...it runs on Java..the well known SE smart OS...that's a huge benefit cuz it's very very smart among handling ur contacts, ur messages, the file manager, the BT connection,music arrangement with the album arts ,the 3G internet connection even the USB connection etc...all of this has been upgraded in this phone rather than the other older SE phones with more options to facilitate many many things for u as SE has merged the smart options of the K-series with the specs of the W-series which make it a unique SE phone...that beside it's fast, & esp. in the Aino the touch screen is very responsive & smooth & in the 8 months i remember it hangs only twice at first yes only twice...
on the other hand when u put ur hands on a Symbian(i put ma hands on these phones) phone like for example the the nokia, some samsung phones & the satio & the vivaz...u'll know the difference..it hangs really a lot...very slow...the screen isn't smooth at all..plus it's not smart at all.
the Aino's design: the phone is really slim with a smart art to make it with this size & with these specifications...when u compare it wid other phones with the same specifications...u'll know wut i'm talkin about...the white color of it is very stylish...the black is very elegant..a piece of art
the touch screen:smooth..highly responsive & sensitive... some say it's limited...i say it's not...may be u can't dial or send a sms with it but when u can take photos, go through all ur media, answer-mute-open loud speaker-cancel the calls & recall,plus with the opera mini 5 surf the net with only the touch-screen & a QWERTY keys on the screen & that all plus the applications which is compatible with the Aino..most of them work by touch...like nimbuzz, ebuddy, UEFA app 2 follow the championship matches & many other..4 me that's more than enough.
the battery life: many ppl talk about it...i'll tell u my experience with it....one day there's only in the battery 20% & i had a travel for 150KM that is one & half hours ....i connected it with the BT headset which i connect it to my car by the 3.5mm in it listening to my music all the way...plus i made a couple of calls & it stayed with me all the way till i got home. is that a bad battery?? 4 me it's a powerful one...in general it can stay for more than 1 day with minimal use & with maximal use (calls - wifi - bt connection- play some music)it can stay for 1 day(13-15 hours)..it has been improved a lot with 2 updates released by SE.
the output sound quality: when u connect the Aino 2 SE PC suite...it'll read it as Walkman phone...so the quality is unquestionable i guess...it's really amazing with many equalizers 2 choose between & Clear- bass™, Clear stereo™ , Sense ME™ & Mega Bass™.
the BT headset & the Stand charger: the BT headset is a whole new experience for music lovers..this set is amazing...wut can be better than enjoyin ur music wireless & u don't have to keep it beside u or holding it with an astonishing sound quality...plus it got a 3,5mm which means u can connect it 2 a stereo & play ur music..connect it 2 ur car stereo..connect large headphones...all of this wireless.
abt it's battery...i connect it every day i go out with ma car...i play music all my way..for hours...& it stays for DAYS..3-4days & maybe more in cold weather cuz the hot weather weaken the battery...i'm in love with this set.
the stand charger is also a cool accessory..u plug the charger 2 it & u can also connect the usb 2 ur pc in same time plus u can connect it by wifi...& watchin movies when its plugged in it is very amusing.
the 8.1MP HD cam: it's not a cyber-shot but it still a SE cam with almost all the specs of the cyber-shot...outstanding shots at day light more than dim light or darkness cuz of the LED flash but still will satisfy u. video recording (nHD) is amazin with very smooth playback.
internet connection: HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 2 Mbps
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, DLNA...really fast with good coverage. that plus its satellite connection for the location service Google maps - tracker - navigation)was a surprise for me 2 find it that fast.
the remote play (for PS3): u can stay connected connected with ur PS3 xmb menu wherever u go using wifi or 3G connection & enjoy all the media u save on it..really amusin & it's like u have a 60 or 80 Gb phone
the applications: Facebook..Twitter.. you-tube...Accuweather. all of these apps will make u stay connected & updated all the time..as of course u can download many other compatible apps.
i used before many nokia phones, plus the K750i, K810i & many other phones i put ma hands on through my friends the Aino now...it's the best phone i had put ma hands on..best for Entertainment..for Business...for communication...very recommended. for those who bought it ...enjoy...for those who didn't ..u r missing a lot

ok i look up in the net for ur question cuz i have the MH 100 BT headset & didn't try the earphones... i found many ppl recommending the HPM 82...cuz the play/pause control integrated in the set. and it looks much better but it's more expensive ...some say the quality is better & some say it's the same !!!..& u have 2 make sure that's its compatible wid the Aino before u buy it...for me..i totally recommend the BT headset (yes it's expensive) but it's an amazin device wid high vol & quality sound..a new experience. hope i could help.

I got a earphone that says 60, is this good? or as some people say I should go for 70? 82? which one can give me extradionary sound? Thanx

I need to ch... morehey Alamir, u r not disturbing me at all...i'm really wanna help u...but i think u should take it to the cust. service & they will tell u wut's wrong with it if there's really something wrong wid it cuz it's a critical issue 2 u. hope i could help
I have been using Aino for over 10 months and from performance perspective, this is by far the worst phone I ever had. It's sluggish and it hangs very often.. I need to update the service at least once a month to get the phone quicker.
I am surprised to see that not many people are reporting this issue. Is it really as good as the review (Performance - 8.5) says? Or is it an overrated one?
My intention behind asking this question is to understand if there is any manufacturing glitch in my handset or is it general. Would appreciate your experience and the comments to my question.
Thanks - Sam

Thank you so much for your reply, how nice and helpful you are.
I need to check one small thing, did you encourage one day that there is no signal on your mobile, while there is a signal in any other mobiles brand?
Also what about if I got a cover for him, is this will solve the problem ?
what I feel now that signal stength is this mobile is less than other mobiles.
sorry Michael if I disturb you with my question, but this is critical for my work.
Thank you again for any reply.

Mark, 20 Oct 2010HAve you updated the firmware? If you haven't go to the SE site for further info...Yes the software is updated to latest version.
do you see the same problem wih signal in your Aino?
Appretiate also your response as this will hlep me more.
