I think the phone is good in general. The slick design makes the phone very attractive and solid when you're using it. Free bluetooth headset connector is a nice free gift, but make sure you don't lose it though, cause it might be hard to find a replacement. Furthermore, the entertainment touch screen feature is pretty 'cool', since you can control your camera, video and music at a touch of a button, however sometimes the program response is slow making the touchscreen feature annoying at times. Another heads up, I think SE could've improved its music player a lot better. AI know this is not the W-Series, but at least it should be as close as Nokia N85, in terms of features such as ease of creating playlists and so on.
Also, it's quite slow compared to my Nokia, to be honest I have no idea why. One other disadvantage is that you can not use your phone if you don't recharge it the night before you use it. The battery life is a lot worse compared to other phones.
I would have given this phone a 9/10 if only the phone is faster and has longer battery life. But for now, it deserves no more than 7/10, hopefully SE can come up with a better upgrade/update in the near future.
This fone is too good
i wantd beer app for this buh i m nt able to find it
Ok Michael I found the way to update it on the website.
But maybe you could help me with other problem.
The phone doesn't come with the dock charging and headphones set kit. It just comes the phone and the usual cable headset. I saw in the website that there is the Sony Ericsson MH-100 Stereo Bluetooth Headset and also Sony Ericsson MW600 BLUETOOTH Hi-Fi HEADSET w/ FM Radio.
Which one usually comes with the phone? And what the difference between them? One connects only by BT and the other by BT and wi-Fi?
Michael, 28 Jun 2010i had the Aino 4 months ago....i updated it 2 times during the 4 months...before theses update... moreMichael I will buy this week my AINO. I don't know if it comes with the last update. But in case it doesn't, could you explain me how could I do it? It's the 1st time I buy an SE.
hi friends der is no facility of text messaging via touch screen, but it's gud as keypad is very soft to operate, secondly touch screen is only 4 camera, entertainment, radio, n music so don know y people said dat it got hanged after sumtime,,, is really nice phone speciallly camera...
sound is cool not toooooooooo loud like nokia but at same time is also nt weak....
like my fren tell,this phone dont have a video call? is that true? anyone can xplain for me? coz i wanna buy this phone....
nice phone in everything but only the camera quality in night isn't 100% for e.g.take aphoto from camera 3.2 in night and the same from Aino and see the diff. but the telephone pverall is great.

lot of people here said that the touchscreen function of aino is really bad..why is that? is the keypad the only way in doing some text messages? or with the screen also?reply pls
i had the Aino 4 months ago....i updated it 2 times during the 4 months...before theses updates i was frustrated & rlly disappointed in that phone, but u can't imagine how the phone became more stable with no hanging & the touch screen improved to its max..plus better battery consumption...my Aino is perfect. the touch screen isn't limited only for media...after u download the opera mini 5 ..u'll experience the complete touch browsing on the Aino plus some games.
hello frns..here is my AINO review..
# Attractive design,wonderul display
# Nice experience of using Bluetooth handsfree
# 8 MP camera is good but not having so many camera features like image stablization,red eye reduction,etc
# Video recording is good in Daylight output is VGA(640x480) quality is OK, and yaa there is video light option available in cellphone while no website has mentioned it
# Hansfree sound is good and effective but not louder as SE 595 or Samsung metro
# Little costly
# No widgets and widget manager on front screen
# cant view full internet page on browser only supports mobile version of websites
# speaker sound is not good enough no stereo
Overall its a good phone if u r a limited functions mobile user but not for a user who needs sharp camera and sound quality.
One another important fact AINO is available in Rs 19500 with bluetooth and Rs 17000 without bluetooth in MP.

Anonymous, 27 Jun 2010i want to buy the phone but i have a few questions :
Is the audio quality good like an iphone... moreYaa idea quality is good but not very loud like samsung metro series...no problem with touchpad.
I bought it coz I'm SE fun. Aino is incredible in design and functions. But touchscreen is aweful. Camera is cool coz of 8.1 pixel.
