I also meant to mention another small problem that I find but again it may be normal with this handset.
I find the earpiece for calls not very clear and if you put the volume anymore than half way it crackles and distorts slightly.
Its still loud enough at half way so maybe this is normal but not sure so any advice would help
I wrote a review on this phone yesterday and could not say enough good things about it but still some things getting to me.
How can this 12megipixel camera still not beat my N95 for quality.Picture on screen lack colour in my opinion
Video is not as good as N95
Both are VGA so whats the problem>
I am not a Nokia fan by any means I have always loved Sony Ericsson and do love this phone in every other way but the reason you buy a 12mgpix camera is for it to be better than a 5 for pictures and video but not looking this way.

About plugging other 3.5mm headsets into the mic socket:
It that you say 'you cant use other headsets'.. as I plugged my logitech 3.5mm headset that I use on my laptop into the satio mic block and listened to the music, I'll see what it's like going to work and when I plug in the car audio 3.5mm input.
Some of you kids need to TRY before you give up.

Does satio has equalizer?
Does satio music player like otheR se music player?
The Cnet.UK review is not so positive about Satio, apart the very nice camera they said all the rest is like 5800, means double tap in many menus,slow photo browser...I though SE has masterised S60v5 but it seems like it's not the case at all
While the i8910 is for S60v5 what HTC Touchflo is for WM,means much logical and easier UI

hey. I'm from India i just got a hands on review on the satio at the sony store. It felt good in my hand. A bit bulky. I'm using a 5800 . The satio is way bigger than this but weighs less. It doesn't feel solid though. But fit and finish was good. The camera was really impressive. Very fast start up-shoot and save time. The os looks completly different and the phone was really fast. The screen being resistitve wasn't the best around but way better than 5800 or even n97. And yes the camera and video quality was undoubtedly awesome. The phone comes only in black for India. And is now priced at 34.000... And one more thing. The phone isn't pocket friendly. Its like a brick. But stylish though. And yes the speaker output is almost as good as 5800. And video quality was good but no divx support yet. Fingers crossed. Cuz the 3.5'' screen was a joy to watch videos.
Spoke to a rep today about Aust release date.
Should be Early November.
2 weeks left :P XD
The recording quality won't be massively more impressive than your N95 as they are both running VGA 30 fps... As stated previously with a digital zoom it really does lack the quality. I have used this handset though and it is very nice to use, alot of nice features. The only thing that really annoys me about SE is that they bring out these high tech symbian handsets with such potential and wonder why alot of their consumers complain about lag. There are now 1ghz proccessors available on the market and yet the only put in a 600mhz processor in this handset, so yet again hello freezing.

Dude - it has a converter block, housing the mic into which you can plug what ever 3.5mm headphones into it.
In effect you can use your favorite 3.5mm jack headphones, with the mic.
Is it really that much of a issue for you ??
This phone look as if it is pregnant. And it does not have a 3.5mm jack (unforgivable, and enough reason not to buy the phone). If they get rid of the tummy fat and put in 3.5mm audio jack then it is a definite buy.
I got this phone yesterday as an upgrade on my contract and I've got to say, it is quite simply the best phone I have ever seen, let alone used, forget the iphone, this piece of kit IS the new must have phone, it is quite simply outstanding and well worth any kind of wait, I am a SE fan, my last phone was a C905, and tyhis knocks spots off anything anyone has produced, I have used the iphone and found it boring, slow and unuseable, and that as a mac user is a hard thing for me to say, but, quite frankly the iphone does not have the intuitiveness or features that this does and I've got to say that Nokia'sare boring and samey, Motorolas are just unusable and Samsungs must be an acquired taste because I have never liked them! Go and get this phone, if you take my advice, because you will LOVE it!! The pics are amazing and the touchscreen is so easy to use! Well done Sony Ericsson, TOP PHONE!!! :D
