Anonymous, 25 Nov 2009ofcourse satio, you will really be happy with it I promise you.How could u promised a phone with faulty os and underpowered battery??
:), 23 Nov 2009Hi,does Satio support DivX format?I'd tried to transfer the avi' files via "Media go", so far it's work! same with the mp4. you should try.
I was so close to getting this unit. I decided agaist it for now, as iv read so much on the phone. Things iv heard are it somtimes freeze up, not many apps, battery life, it can be slow, ect... I think I will wait a while to see how things go for updates. Im getting the iphone 3GS for now. I didnt really want it but its proven and I hate Blackberrys. I hope my concerns are unwarrented but Ill leave it to you guys who have the phone to let me know. Thanks..

Software problems are likely to happen during its first release. Have you guys remembered the 5800 FW problem!! That was really frustrating!! The n86 had a problem after release too!! The n97 has had some problems as well!! And the Omnia HD has been released with some lack on its firmware! Besides, most problems about this phone are from networks with different firmware.
Viju, 24 Nov 2009My Satio vs Omnia HD vs Nokia 5800 - Display Comparison Today i compared my Satio with Omni... morewhy don't u mention about color quality between satio n omnia hd? bcoz u realized that the color rendering in omnia hd far more vivid than ur staio, isn't it? em using both of this fone.. I'd comparing the color quality in both phone almost every days. no display (phone) will ever match omnia hd in term of colors.
Too often it freezes. ALmost 3-5 times a day! Only way out is to remove the battery and restart the phone again. For a product of this high price and spec, Sony should have done a better job. I am a fan SONy for the last 20 years and will think of buying other phones in the future. I am sure Sony will lose market share with such bad phones.
how can this failed device in the third rank?
i'm ex sony ericsson fan boy, but SE device is risk, not a year yet the device already broken...

Sat-ee-oh or Say-she-oh?@DanSixx
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970There is almost NO software available from 3rd parties on the LG phone. I would choose from the other 2. I can't tell you which is better, because it depends what you use it for. The Satio has the best camera, and is an excellent phone. The OmniaII 8000 has the most software available for it, and is probably the best business phone of the 3. The Satio is maybe the more friendly, and social-consumer oriented.
I've owned a Satio for about 2 weeks now, and I've had no problems. I did go into CarphoneWarehouse, and asked if I should be concerned about the reported issues with the phone, but was told that the phones were not being sold presently, while Sony Ericsson deals with some issues. Apparently not all the phones have had complaints, and indeed, mine has been perfect.
As for using the phone, I can only be satisfied with my experience. Everything works, and often I have more than 6 programs running (smoothly) at the same time.
I've always owned some of the best and latest phones, so I can compare it to other recent phones, and it does very well. The only question is how successful the Symbian OS will be against the Android OS and possibly Maemo....which looks extremely useful.
But all in all, the camera is excellent, with the best flash I've ever witnessed on a phone. Call reception is far better than on my other phones. Bluetooth and WiFi operate flawlessly, as opposed to on my Blackberry Bold (I'm waiting for the Storm 2 now).
The people who have had problems with it, I understand that the Vodafone software did not work well with the phone, and there was the source of most of the complaints. I'm not with Vodafone, so have nothing negative to report.
just because it's from "apple" doesn't mean it's good always !!, the satio has a way beter touch-screen multimedia capabilities and a 12 mp camera !! (compared to iphone-3g's 3.2 mp.......and as for games and applications give it time dudes !!........
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2009u saying a 3.5" TFT screen is brighter and sharper then a 3.7" AMOLED?? i did a compare betwe... moreand ya...the tft display used by Satio is far better than those on N97...even i was not expecting this from Satio but when i compared with Omnia i was very very surprised...so plz try comparing the displays in real, in indoors or a dark room...and dont forget to increase the screen brightness to max in the display settings...
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2009u saying a 3.5" TFT screen is brighter and sharper then a 3.7" AMOLED?? i did a compare betwe... moreWhy dont u try comparing them first in real??? You said u comapred omnia with N97...u shud try comparing with a Satio...just becoz samsung has hyped it as an amoled screen...does it mean its like television amoled screens which have superb brightness and sharpness or does it mean its brighter/sharper than satio? A smaller screen with higher pixels wud always be sharper no matter whether its tft or amoled...do a search on google n u wil know wat i m saying about resolutions and display sizes...the more pixels we fit in a given area the sharper the pictures and fonts become...
Adding insult to Sony Ericsson's injurious bottom line, Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U shops (the UK's largest mobile phone retailers) have halted sales of the SE's Symbian-powered Satio handset after a high number of customer returns and complaints. A "software glitch" reportedly causes Sony Ericsson's flagship device to power down when users try to access certain applications -- unfortunately, the issue can't be patched via an over-the-air update. A little digging into CPW discussion forums reveals multiple complaints of freezes, crashes, under-performing batteries, and bizarre interface behavior. Both the Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U will offer "new phones" to customers fed up with their Satio. Richard Dorman, senior marketing manager at Sony Ericsson, concedes the issue and assures us that it should be sorted by Christmas. Until then, you can still purchase the handset directly from Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile... but really, why would you? The Satio's not the only dubiously-speced 12 megapixel cameraphone on the market.
