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 Phone has been withdrawn from various major UK dealers due to the faults I have been going on about for weeks now but everyone SonyEricsson BRAINWASHED are too scared to admitt.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.
i bought a satio about a week ago from ebay to use for the u.s. and i am soooooo dissapointed. i can't believe it.
it won't stay on. the battery life is the worse of any phone i have ever seen.
the screen flickers. the battery is rotten. i dont know what to think. i just saw that sony pulled the phone form the major retails in the UK so i am done.
leaving sony...maybe go with the pixon.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2009take away the 12 MP cam and put it 3MP how many of you would buy the fone??if they take away the 12 meg cam and put a 3, of course the price should go down and i think the trend of buying will still be the same cos still a lot of consumers prefer of buying mid range units. what you think?
i think we cannot put all the blame to SE in this dilemma we've experienced to this 2 SE units...my understanding is, we should also consider the networks provider vodafon, orange and etc they have also putting some modification to a unit i contract with them in order for a phone to function exactly what their company's they provide to the costumers.why not to try investigating other compay such as philippine-smart, globe, sun cell singapore's singtel, arabian etisalat, qtel, yemen sabafon and so on....did they experience same problem.....pleas people look on the bigger picture...i think this is just a cause of software conflict.
kal-el, 27 Nov 2009i have owned a satio now for 2 weeks(on vodafone) and absolutely love it.. i have not had 1 pr... moreIs it true you get 15 FREE movie downloads with the Satio? I have also read you get 5 more each month. Any knowledge of this? Thank you
i have owned a satio now for 2 weeks(on vodafone) and absolutely love it.. i have not had 1 problem with it and ive used almost everything on it.. wifi.. gprs.. google maps..camera.. video camera.. games.. texting.. movie player.. music player.. twitter.. facebook.. snaptu etc.. i can tell you i am a bit worried about it going down on me but(fingers crossed)everything has worked perfectly. a work colleague of mine got 1 (2 days before me) and he got all the usual problems with it and sent it back and got a replacement direct from vodafone.. he said it was like going from a mini to a ferrari.. everything was lots faster on the second unit and everything is working 100%.. the only gripe i have on my phone is the battery power.. 1000mah is nowhere nearly powerful enough to keep this baby running for more than 2 days. i got my phone directly from vodafone.
lfccrew, 27 Nov 2009@coolkai Im from Malaysia...i dont see any problems with Satio software wise with Maxis, ... moreHang up and auto rebooting 5-6 times per day while running GPS and watching videos, it's that normal?
Satio is awesome. I think some batches of the phone is having problem. But otherwise it is fine. I have one for a month now. I'm happy.
I got it yesterday
Works quite good
Impressive screen definition
very good interface (I know, Iphone's is better, yes)
Probably too good camera
Does not seem to work with my car handsfree SE HBC-100
In Spain, its first start was in German ?????
GPS seems slow
I suppose I'll hit some problems along the way, but
I also expect SE to timely release new sw versions
but they should have done software checks before they released it shouldnt they,,that goes for EVERY fone,,people are getting fed up of half baked mobiles and its getting worse,,i think the problem is they just chuck out too many different models of the same fone instead of getting just one right..
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2009satio has been pulled on orange uk due to software problems It suck in the UK due to software problems
take away the 12 MP cam and put it 3MP how many of you would buy the fone??
i have the phone its awesome.. the iphone is good but camera nd other spece SE beats thm all..
It is the phone of the moment and as I can see the complainings come from the people which don't own a satio :)Why?
sony.. everything is lies n gimmicks.. where is the HD games ? not worth that much at all.. everythings is the same as nokia 5530. juz buy 5530 and 1 camera, it cost 1/3 the price of satio.
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2009Kelvin, There is no such thing as the "best" or "end-all be-all" phone in this world. I have ... moreSatio is the best...........best..........best........There has been no major complaints from anyone in asia..........Secondly on my experience of using satio i find it really cool..u can have u'r unlucky lemon for u'rself........I don't wish to compare nokia and sony mobiles..Both r gud in various aspects.........If u dn't like it then why u bought it?.......u shud hve bought a nokia mobile instead......Complaining is so easy......No matter wat people like u say, sony lovers like me will always buy sony mobiles and we won't be carried away by all these negative comments.......1 more thing, nokia too is gud as they comprise 70% of the market shares and all their handsets too are a delight to use......
Striker, 27 Nov 2009What? Anyone who says their phone has problems is a liar?
Are you for real?
Do one ---->Ha there is problems with this phone. You can no longer get it in the UK Carphone warehouse, phones 4 u and O2 are no longer selling the phone.
