Nokia hater, 28 Nov 2009Nope, it's not scratch resistance, cuz it's resistive touchscreen.how much is the price of sony ericcsson satio IDUO in the phils.a\
I jus had my satio from singapore...I have had it for a week plus now...battery life is good lasting from 1-2 daes with sufficient photography n Wi-Fi connection...Bluetooth switched on n music on playing at 70% via loudspeaker... Very well performance....
However...These are e problems i encountered when i was charging the battery for e first time... first camera UI tends to be unstable (when u open e active lens cover, camera UI doesnt appear n it switches back to home screen mode)... secondly, changing e theme of e fone hangs e fone 2 times..thirdly, battery life realli sux to e core....60 9mp with xenon flashes drains e fone...
Wad i did was to charge e fone fully after a complete drainage of battery from e first charging, then took out e battery n leave e fone off without any battery for a dae...e next dae , everything improves...camera UI is very stable (provided u dnt slide e active lens cover out with such a big 'click' sound...this will hinder the performance of e camera UI'...battery is AWESOME (as mentioned earlier on)...and changing of themes has had no problem (Wifi browsing for 20 mins did nt drain any bit of e battery at all)
I took updated e software although e software was already e latest version installed in the fone...after all these charging n software updating...fone was perfect...
Certain hardware prob is inevitable...like e zoom levers which offer 2 different senses of touch when u press them individually( meaning 1 button is studier than e other...and things like unfitting batter cover which makes a 'clicking' sound when u tap on e batter cover jus below e camera lens cover....
As for e advantages of e fone...we need to experience it ourself (GSMarena may receive a different version of satio from asia..European n Asian goods are different and i hope u all knoe :D...
For me, the xenon flash is FANTASTIC, AWESOME camera, alot of applications although some may nt seem to work very well )things like MYlook n PicasaWEB are useless)...UI lags abit but its explainable...Symbians has always been like this...Lastly, the price tag in Singapore is heavy, with e retail price set at S$1198...
In essence, NO regret....first time users may find all e listed problems for e first few daes..but after that, all problems will be solved.. :D
GOOD LUCK !!! (by the way, im a first-time SE user, used NOKIA and LG previously...)...all are very good brands..but iHATE samsung..>

Bitmap Brother, 28 Nov 2009This will be my last SE phone. It has the potential to be great, but they should have thought... moreWait till new firmware comes out before Christmas they said should fix things
This will be my last SE phone.
It has the potential to be great, but they should have thought about the software before releasing it. If I programmed web applications as 1/2 as bad as the operating system and tools on the SE Satio I would have been fired long long ago. Warning stay away from this phone it's **** ****. I have 16 month to go till I can get rid of it. Till then I have to put up with photos of my pocket, sluggish screen response and applications that hang and crash all the time..eg mms, phone lock etc..

The Gsm Arena says it all. Phone has been withdrawn from various major UK dealers due to the faults I have been going on about for weeks now but everyone SonyEricsson BRAINWASHED are too scared to admitt.
I loved this phone for the 1st few weeks but that was after having it replaced 5 times.
You basically cant download anything-Themes,pics or Apps because this stupid Symbian v5 is still being worked on and really it belongs to NOKIA so Sony dont have much say.
Apps for this phone are a total joke, Vodafone sold me this phone 5 weeks ago and still no apps store open to download anything.
I am getting rid of this phone and using my old N95 until something on a par with it comes out.
Also is it just me or does everyone picture just come out with everyone looking like RED EYE ALIENS, even adjusting the settings its still poor and flash is very weak.
