Wymark, 30 Oct 2009Disappointing, which i hate to say being a sony fan. Greatest weakness was always going to be/... moreI agree!
SE phones are buggy and unreliable!
Samsung sold over 10 million 5230!!!! over 10 million!!!
it is a very basic model, but reliable!
LG makes some good phones!
SE can not keep up with technology! No quality control!
ALL manufacturing is outsourced - so even a decent design can not be wekk made . but where is the decent design?
are does not cut it anymore!
Disappointing, which i hate to say being a sony fan. Greatest weakness was always going to be/and is the operating system. Glitchy and slow, eg same as nokia 5800 when turning from portrait to landscape in sms etc the screen just goes blank which considering when bugdet stuff like the s5230 can do it quick and easy. Hardware is mega but the build feels cheap and tacky. The mega pixel wars are over, things have changed.
Sepehr, 29 Oct 2009If you want to update your satio just download the phone updater from here:(about 35MB)
http:... moreThanks for your help. I tried this and it states I have the latest software so just had to deal with the fact that the audio quality from recording videos is terrible I must add this might only be ones sold by Vodafone todo with whatever custom software they add.
Fingers crossed it might get better in future up updates as maybe they just need to raise the mic volume but when you compare to N95 audio from videos its embarrasing how poor it really is.
Anyone having problems with the camera? Mine struggles to focus and gets blurred pictures, especially at night. But also, it gets strange circles/dots both in good and bad light. Its going back, but I don't know whether or not to try another.
Bash, 29 Oct 2009You're right. If you get used to SE, you would find it user-friendly, but this takes more time... morestudy ur history dawg it is persian gulf and userfriendlyness depends on the particular phone u cant judje a company
Arak, 29 Oct 2009yesw i agree now , but in the camera of sony ericssons are not bad at all , yes the video is l... morecompletely right but not gulf, persian gulf see it on as i dont say sea to the black sea
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970ok you might stell the name of persian gulf for urself as you stole my grammer and just change the place of satio and pixon keep up changing the truth
truth will shoe itself and it doesnt care,so watch out
To all you doubting thomas:
I have had my Satio for nearly 3 weeks now and it is everything i expected it to be. No problems at the moment and i am still getting used to the S60 area of things.
Being a new device S60v5 the apps will come soon and i wont need to FORCE incompatible software into the phone. (i am sure thats why some people are having their issues)
10/10 IMHO - Keep it up Sony Ericsson : YOU ROCK!!
On Cell Phone since , 29 Oct 2009SE has done it again; A very promising product and a total (almost) still born failure. It's ... moreWhat you said is interesting, some people said they bought the Satio, and it is GOOD. And you come here and say it is a BAD phone! I can't believe you, and all the SE fans can't believe this. SE made mistakes on the past, but this model can't be a bad phone.
hopefully se releases some new high end phones.
when I see new Lg phones i regret for shortage of variety in se phones.
SE has done it again; A very promising product and a total (almost) still born failure.
It's slow (reaction on commands), the touch screen is worse than my old P900 (a long story)
And the funniest thing keeps happening again and again, while using the Satio to browse pictures, or trying to use the movie feature PlayNow (scandinavian feature)where one has access to movies for download.
IT CRASHES...people, again ad again, and no matter what bad language I use, voodoo and black spells, I have to yank the batteries and reboot the f"#¤%& brick.
This one has to go back to the R&D dep. for serious upgrading. Software and hardware.
BUT..it does take great picture and video...
buy a camera, for the price of a Satio, you will get a real diamond
No wonder SE did not release the SAR value for long time!!!
It is very high!!!!
1.58 W /kg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
People keep saying how bad the audio quality is on video recording but looking at these videos it looks amazing.Maybe a little high sounding but still ok
you kept the SAR value from your customers for weeks!!!!!!
Shame on you!!!!!
* Xenon flash is not adequately powerful
* The S60 5th edition UI isn't to the best in class standards
* No 3.5mm audio jack or a standard USB port
* No DivX or XviD support out-of-the-box
* No smart or voice dialing
* Playing flash videos in the browser easily depletes the available RAM
* No office document editing (without a paid upgrade)
* No stereo speakers
* No digital compass (magnetometer)
How about the 900mAh battery???????????
I think that is outrages!!!!
(a bias review towards Satio but still...)
˝Uninspiring audio quality
The audio quality of the Sony Ericsson Satio is a bit disappointing, considering its ultra high-end status. As seems to be the case with all Sony Ericsson handsets recently, the Satio achieved excellent scores on most readings but a disastrous frequency response.
Needless to say that with that kind of performance your favorite tracks won't sound exactly as they are meant to.˝
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2009Satio,Aino,and Yari were made by Japanese team of Sony Ericsson. That's why these brand names ... moreHi, I have great news for you! More Japanese SE phones will come here to Europe, eg the SE Kurara smartphone! ABout Japanese phones, Sharp said they will enter to the European markets with smartphones! They probably will enter in America too. Panasonic will enter too on European markets with Android phones! :)
