I am using Satio since last 2 months & here is my experience with it:
Size: very resonable not very big not very small . Look of phone is really impressive .
camera : No doubt its amazing & fast.Colors are very perfect to natural.
Signal reception & call quality : No problems at all. Its clear & loud.
Call quality thru speaker is not very loud but its very clear.
Touchscreen response: No problem at all. very responsive & easy to use.
Wifi : Its just like a any N Series Nokia phones. Runs fine
Ringtones quality : Its loud & clear specially with mp3 ringtones
Performance : No freezing , no restart itself . looks very reliable.
Battery : Battery life is good for about 3 days on average use & one & half day with heavy heavy usage ( take lots of pictures, Wifi on, bluetooth on) . Not bad at all .
So, Overall i am very happy with this phone. ITS AMAZING.
I have had about 12 Phones in the past 10 years. 2 of them have been been SE k800i, and k850i. These have by far been the best, because I am a social person and i like to take pics where ever i go, however i hate logging around a camera which is always likely to get lost after a few drinks.
My most recent phone was a HCT touch pro and although it was a "smart phone", it was a slow, unreliable, glitchy and overly technical piece of crap.
I have had my Satio for about 2 weeks now, and I absolutely love it. IIt is fast, with zero lag, even when running alot of apps.
It uses Symbian 6 5th Addtion, and its fantastic. Totally craps all over windows 6 and I find it as easy to use as the apple Ipone OS.
In terms of finding Apps, themse music and all that, do not go into google and search satio themse as alot of people seem to be doing.
This phone uses Symbian, the same as N8500 and other higher end nokia phones. Everything is pretty much universal. An app or theme which will work for those phones will work on the Satio. I just cant believe no one has mentioned that on this site yet. The phone is not supported by Sony Erricson, so stop sayingthat they dont support it. Its mainly supported by Symbian and all the awesome people and companies who make apps and themes and games for the OS. There are thousands on the NET. You can find them on Torrents sites, or by just searching google. Its simpl a matter of knowing what to look for. Dont look for "Satio" apps and games anf themes. You will be very dissapointed, because no one makes anything for "Satio". Its all made for Symbian OS.
So far i have 47 awesome highly deatiled themese, 12 games and a stack of extra apps and thats just from when i have been bored. My phone is customized too the tea and its super easy.
Also if you are after specific apps like skype or Live messenger and that sort of thing, just search it but for Symban s60 5th.
E.g Skype for Symbian s60 5th.
Search: "symbian s60 5th themes" and other similar searches and you will find what you want easily.
I love this phone, the camera is great, for those who bag it, shut up because although it is not an actual stand alone camera, it is the only phone i can take around with me to anyw club party and such and take great pictures without worrying too much about quality. And no one needs ultra shap high quality pics on a night out, this is a great phone for social people, i'm not a photographer, nor do i give a stuff about quality (even though this phone quality is stupidly good).Sony erricson make great phones, very functional, easy to use and has apps galore, if you know how to look for them.
I rate it 10/10 in relation to all the phones I have ever had. I find it better than the Iphone in the sense that i know that its a great phone, and not a featureless, overly marketed dudd.
The only thing that would make it better would be 3mm jack and then it would be a perfect phone :) I hope this has been helpful to those interested in getting it.
Here are some sites for those looking for apps and themse and such

Anonymous, 06 Feb 2010Alrady I grouped all my photos in folders under the File Manager but the problem is you can't ... moreAssigning a photo to a Contact is very simple. Just open you Media from the Standby screen and go to photo gallery either select Latest Photo, Camera Album or Pictures. Select or touch the photo, after touching the photo it will give you 4 icons below the screen, select the first one on your left side and you will find different options there and that includes assigning photo contact (note that this 4 icons disappear in few second so you need to touch the screen to show again).

happy to have SE satio!!
Satio still needs software upgrades,as some songs i have on my laptop an send to my Satio do not work correctly,but i send the same song using my N95 8gb they sound o.k,Very Pleased with Satio,just wished the speakers were Stereo but they are still loud enough though,would easily recommend this phone to anyone who wants a touch screen mobile
i just bought satio red and I'am amaze because it is user friendly, I expect when I bought this I will get hard time to use this since this is a touch screen but as of the moment I'am enjoying this phone and don't have bad experience yet in using this one...nice investment for me this one...great phone

Also if you want to assign photo to contact you can't brows to File manager to select the photo you want!!!!
