All the phones you mentioned are carrier subsidized phones in the US. Satio does not fall under this category, There are huge numbers of good phones that do not come to the US because it is not subsidized, therefore too expensive...
This phone uses li-po battery, not li-ion. There's a little difference in characteristics between them. (end of part 1)

i dont know where some people have this weird theory that letting the phone die helps, it doesnt. it kills the battery faster than they'll ever know.
Anonymous, 12 Dec 2009You said that the Satio got poor battery performs? You have to do this when you buying SE phon... moreI got this from Sony Ericsson when I asked about the battery life:
Most mobile phone batteries these days are lithium-based rather than nickel-based. While nickel batteries had to be charged for over 10 hours before first use (to prime the battery), lithium batteries only need to be charged until the mobile phone says the battery is full.
Don't let the battery run flat too often and apply regular charges
Another advantage of using a lithium battery is that it doesn't suffer from 'memory' -- a charging issue that affects nickel batteries.
A lithium battery can be charged whenever it needs it. Full discharges are not needed -- indeed, they are inadvisable. Instead, let the battery run down to around a third of its capacity and charge it on a regular basis rather than running the battery completely flat.
Joey, 13 Dec 2009Agreed, Satio does have a better spec on paper than n97/n97mini. But trying Satio for real wil... morehi joey i have c905 and had many problems with it,i want to get a new phone with better quality,i can not decide i am torn between n97 or satio.i would appreciate if you can help me on this subject
I live in Brazil. I have a Satio U1i, I bought in October. It is a wonder device. I have no criticism to make. Everything is perfect, besides being a beautiful and modern equipment in their lines. The only problem is receiving MMS pictures in small, about 5 kb. But this is the problem of operator VIVO not yet approved the device, so it made adjustments in their servers MMS.
Just ignore the bad comments and dont bite (You`ll make it worse)
i have satio and payed no attention to any comments here.
What are they for???
jase, 13 Dec 2009I noticed that the us sonyericsson site has take out satio from their line up. guess us versio... moreI know. It infuriates me. Why bother announcing it if it'll take another 6 months for it to be released in the US, even if it does.
PravSg, 09 Dec 2009It wont be directly compatible with Satio. U need to use some sony walk man series head phone'... moreOk thanks, the only problem though is its hard to find a good SE noise cancellation earphones here in the Philippines.
so many nokia and samsung fans in these thread? why do they post bad comments on satio? did they ever held one? SE lovers remains on SE thread and did not bother to see those fancy nokia or samsung phones out there nor posted bad critics on nokia samsung thread. Please be realistic!
Top 10 Cell Phones PC World
Nov 13, 2009 11:30 am
1. Motorola Droid
Bottom Line: The first Android 2.0 phone impresses with a strong suite of Web features and a stunning 3.7-inch display, but some users might have trouble with the shallow keyboard.
2. Apple iPhone 3GS
Bottom Line: Performance enhancements distinguish the otherwise evolutionary step-up iPhone 3GS from its previous iterations.
3. Motorola Cliq
Bottom Line: The beautifully designed Motorola Cliq is a social butterflyâ€™s dream phone, but others may find the MotoBlur user interface overwhelming.
4. Research in Motion BlackBerry Bold 9700
Bottom Line: The best BlackBerry available, the Bold 9700 packs a multitude of features into a sophisticated, slimmed-down design.
5. T-Mobile myTouch 3G
Bottom Line: The T-Mobile myTouch 3G is a big improvement from its predecessor, but the physical keyboard is sorely missed.
6. Palm Pre
Form Factor: Candy bar
Bottom Line: The Pre's webOS software is touch-friendly and fun, but the cramped QWERTY keyboard detracts from the phone's usability.
7. Samsung Behold II
Bottom Line: With a gorgeous AMOLED display and an excellent camera, the pricey Samsung Behold II will appeal to multimedia junkies with deep pockets.
8. Research in Motion BlackBerry Tour 9630
Bottom Line: The BlackBerry Tour entices with an ergonomic keyboard and gorgeous display, but the omission of Wi-Fi disappoints.
9. HTC Droid Eris
Bottom Line: If you can live without a hardware keyboard, the HTC Droid Eris is an affordable and feature-packed alternative to the Motorola Droid.
10. HTC Hero
Bottom Line: The HTC Hero marks a giant step in innovation of the Android platform, but it isn't without flaws
what are the difference between this phone and the Samsung Pixon12? i cant choose between them
Last few days ago, i read daily about satio opinion to decide whether should i buy satio or not.
some said satio is suck, some are not.
but now satio is in hand it's ok.
i've updated my satio. all are work great.
it dosen't freeze.
But i dont like battery life, speaker, and media browsing style.
battery last only 36 hr.
speaker is mono and volume is low.(nokia louder than satio)
i cant watch pictures folder by folder.
i cant adjust music equalizer.
hope that sony ericsson will correct that problem.
Except that , all the other features are great.
Ohh.... one last, some of the symbian softwares that work ok on nokia, dosent work on satio.(eg: KIller moblie total recall" But it's a little percentage.
PS: no one can be perfect.****
this one of the strangest and on the other hand interesting mobiles to have .
you cant ignore tha fact that it will catch your eyes ones you see it and i am proud also to have one .
from all the big contenders like NOKIA , SAMSUNG and LG there is a company that needs to be remembered as a leader in technology and inovations and that SHARP
go and see that new model of Sharp mobile SH936 with solar panel and perfect screen , and here were sharp is the strongest . sometines i wonder that we are so closed to these 5 companies as if the others do not exisit .
the problem is that Sharp is only availabe in japan and beleive me if it they start to market there mobiles outside japan , many companies will feel some competition .
I'm still thinking A Mild is lighter than GG though its taste is worse.
jase, 13 Dec 2009I noticed that the us sonyericsson site has take out satio from their line up. guess us versio... morethis is not for america
this is for professional countries like japan and UK and SWEDEN and ETC
I noticed that the us sonyericsson site has take out satio from their line up. guess us version of Satio is not avaliable after all, and there's no point buying a u1i knowing the 3g is not working. I hope every american just stop buying any products from sony. All they sell in america is overstock and unwanted product from japan and the rest of the world.
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2009I want all in 1 device. Because I love to take pictures, listen to music, video, internet brow... moreWell.. all of them pretty much does all of those things.. I think you should either go for the Satio or XPERIA X10. The screen is bigger and you have a an awesome UI. This one is good too!
