Great phone, the combination of fucntions is perfect. No hangs and freezes after the firmware update. But S60V5 lacks productivity and communication software support.
Only complain is that there is no voice dialing and business card scanner which usually comes with previous SE smartphones. Yet to find a 3rd party program that supports the phone.
It is a ditto copy of 5800 Nokia, same OS and size. Camera being 12MP as no difference, only optic zoom is real focusing and image sharpness, than digital zoom which is only like out of speakers can be quoted as max watts but ohms remain the same in music. Think 200$ cell 5800 nokia why pay 3 times price for satio.
the best game for satio so far is need for speed shift......we need playstation games please!!!!!!!!! is should also serve as a mini psp.....satio is not just a phone............HELPPPPPPPPP......GAMESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! 3d ANIMATIONS AND MORE..................
I m actually love mobile photography and i do it all d time. I love music and videos too. Can i have to go 4 satio. Pls suggest me?
Satio is the best SE phone i have had since my previous C905 and although NOKIA can use the ScummVM app, i still prefered a Sony Ericsson phone with S60v5.
I have had no problems with it since i bought it in Oct09 and the battery lasts just as long as my ex C905.
As for the 3.5mm jack people keep MOOOOAAAAANNNNIIIINNNNGGG about. I use Bluetooth headset and it is much easier and tangle free.
SATIO wins for me and thats all that matters ;)

I am a happy Satio user.
I have been looking forward to getting this phone eversince it was announced. But like most of you here, I also had my doubts.
I have gone through a lot of thinking. And decided to buy the phone.
It is not perfect. But so far, the only flaw I could find is it's symbian os. I still wish Sony used their own interface or anything other than what is known for Nokia phones. It may not be as touch sensitive compared to an iphone but its not a big deal, I have an ipod touch. I just want a camera phone bcause i want to be able to take good pictures whenever and wherever with a gadget that i can also use to send sms and make calls.
Reviews on the Camera performance of the Satio showed that Samsung Pixon 12 was better. I have considered getting the Pixon 12 but my only dilemma is its physical design. It looked just like the rest of the Samsung Phone. I mean, if u look at it, there is nothing special but the fact that it has a 12 mp camera capability. Hypocrasy aside, I want to show off my phone. Well, it is an expensive phone. I might as well get a compliment on how beautiful it is. Do u get what I'm saying?
So, I got the Red Satio.
I bought mine Dec. 18, around 3 pm.
It had some battery in it and didnt bother to recharge it. In the evening of the same day, I went out with friends. Took a lot of pictures at the party, 56 to be exact. Plus the calls I have received and made and the sms. I was surprised I had enough battery charge to make through the night that I didnt recharge my phone until noon the next day after I woke up.
I have the phone for more than a month now but i swear I never had any problem with regards to its battery or responsiveness or hanging-up or lags. Much more now that I have updated the firmware.
Oh, I even dropped my phone few days after my purchase..clumsy me.
If one day I'll have some problems with my phone, then I will deal with it. Even new cars break down. Or a laptops or pc. Nothing is perfect.
If you want a Satio, or whatever phone. Think about it first. Then if u ended up getting a faulty one, perhaps u dont deserve it. hehehehe

2.Not AMOLED... moreAmoled is CRAP and specily from Crapsung shit.
I have twice Crapsung before and switch my phone and now i have the Satio, i'm really happy with this phone.
Don't give poeple false info about your opinion.
I like more the LCD from Sony Satio than a Crappy Amoled shit from Crapsung.
The speaker from the Satio is just good, i don't need a antike stereo speakers in a phone. use always the headset.
The screen quality is also the best in it's class, way better than any Crapsung Amoled screen.
And so i can talk even more.

Satio Lover, 15 Jan 2010Is It Good Or Not?
I wanna know if it is good for me to buy it or not

- Battery dsnt last more than 1 day
- texting is not user friendly AT ALL
- speaker phone voulme is really BAD
- it dsnt show the number of the person who send u an sms
- Tele link will tell u you need to update the software to get better battery life and after i did, nothing changed
email me if u want more info about the phone (email@example.com)
it is a very sexy handset, oozing with charisma... I love it!! i just want to know if i can read pdf files on this handset. are there any applications that can do this?
hay i just bought a satio but when i connect it to a wify net work it gets disconnected in 4-5 seconds pls some one help me out im scared n worried
I had been shown this handset time after time by Sony reps and I never passed much remarks not enough for me to actually take one out of the box and have a real play with it.
But Today I did and im loving it.
Its great because I love Sony when they do something they do it right rather than nokia who fill handsets with gadgets but forget some of the important parts to the makeup of a great phone.
This phone is like the Beautifull lovechild of the SEw995 & the Nokia 5800
Great build quality, quick software, battery life is pretty good for a touch screen, camera quality & interface.
Lets see more of this great work!
