The Sony Ericsson Satio has been pulled from sale in the UK at the Carphone Warehouse. The reason for the recall is being cited as software issues. an all too common problem for Sony Ericsson handsets over the past year or two. Interestingly though Carphone Warehouse is continuing to sell the silver variant of the handset, it's only the black version that has been withdrawn from sale. There is as yet no word of whether this recall affects other retailers in the UK or indeed other retailers in other countries. Sony Ericsson themselves will not be keen on having their current flagship handset withdrawn from sale, especially so close to the Christmas shopping period. Sony Ericsson have been trying to put their previous history of buggy and defective handsets behind them and this latest episode certainly won't help those efforts.

music quality is very good but w995 is a little better
media center is very modern
battery performance is normal last for 2 days in normal usage
it can support 32 GB micro sd cart easily
it is very fast thanks to 600 mhz cpu but steel iphone is faster 2 times
it has open GL 2 and you can play HD games in satio
it has tv-out
the design is the best near iphone
screen quality is very good because the screen is 16m color screen and support vga
GPS navigation is good too but it is not very sensitive

Phone industry guy, 19 Nov 2009I've had a Satio since the day they came out, and not had any problems with mine whatsoever, u... moreI cant believe people are still considering getting the Satio lovely looking phone but thats as far as it goes.Phone has lots of problems.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970No compatition i phone all day long satio has to many problems to unstable
I had 3 Satios in 8 days what a load of crap.Crap software crap battery life not a great camera for 12mp.Running the symbion software on this phone is the biggest mistake sony ericson has done so far.This software is to unstable to run this phone keeps colapsing.
I've had a Satio since the day they came out, and not had any problems with mine whatsoever, until about four days ago, its been hanging, battery life is shocking, and just general mishaps with the phone itself.
Its going back, SE have ruined what could have been the best phone of the year.
this phone is nothing like the n97. The camera has a rubbish lens, the megapixelshe don't make much difference, rubbish memory, slow internet, the list goes on...
i have one problem with my satio..when i put the flash on and if there is low light the flash blink until i exit camera..if there is good light then no problem like this ..please help..
i have this fone..good camera but the battery dies out really quick!!!!!!!!
@Spesh i also have this same problem.. I came to know from my friends who own 5800 and n97 and they say that they face the same problem just the difference is that the ringer rings but no sound is heard.. So the problem is with Symbian S60 v5...
Was looking forward to getting the Satio, got it....after a few hours, the ringer stopped working, and I was unable to hear/be heard when making calls. Only solution was to shut phone down, and restart. SE suggested re-installing OS....did that, problem still occured.
Spoke to Vodafone UK, who promptly sent out a replacement. After a few hours, the same problems occured. See various other site where people have reported this problem. Phone has now been sent back, and Im getting a different model completely.
Sony Ericsson Rocks!, 19 Nov 2009Check the percentages on gsmarena.com
What... moreDude, I have this phone, and I love it, but your talking utter boll0cks.
By your logic, the best car in the world is a Toyota Corolla as it's the most popular. By your logic, Beyonce is one of the best musicians in the world right now as shes so popular.
Sadly, popularity no longer has any reflection whatsoever on quality.
