Ive just got this phone on contract on the software and the menu layout is exactly the same as the Nokia 5800, and i wasnt impressed with that either. Thw best thing about this phone is the camera. Oh well roll on 18 months time when i can upgrade lol. My opinion is to get the Nokia N97, awsome phone
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2009Hey is there any chance you could purchase and send the Satio to us for RS 30k?I dont think so that it will be available before 2010 in India!
I dont get it why ppl are criticising this phone and trying to prove that omnia hd and n900 are better.
It might be your opinion but the main strong point of satio is not its camera but the fact tht it has every feature.
Its the only touchscreen smartphone with a xenon flash in the market, plus led flash as well. Its not the megapixels that people should brag about even thought satio takes very detailed shots.
For me, satio is the best looking smartphone in s60 v5 category, it has a very nice and userfriendly interface, it has the most feature packed camera and has omap3 which is only equalled by omnia hd, and all these things make it the highest rated phone on gsmarena
Nisar, 14 Oct 2009In Chennai The Price is Rs.29363 +4% VAT..that's awesome..!Hey is there any chance you could purchase and send the Satio to us for RS 30k?
Sounds like there are a lot of total idiots commenting on here. I like the Satio, think its decent, pity theres no HD recording so prob wait til next year for Samsungs one. The video recording is very important for me, can anyone who actually has this phone plz tell me what the video recording and more importantly the sound recorded is like? Thanks!
If you allow me I would like to share my opinion about the new Sony Ericsson Satio.
First I would like to tell you that in the moment I use SE K810i and before that I had SE W800i.
From both the phones I am very satisfied and frankly I find the SE menu very user friendly.
When I read the article about this phone first I was a little skeptical about its features, especially the Camera - since I am camera man.
When I saw the video made with the Satio Camera from the test here on GSM ARENA, I decided I must have this phone/camera.
What is also very important for me is that this gadget is ALL IN ONE with its OS- Symbian and the WALKMAN.
As I mentioned before the SE Menu (for me) is user friendly and is very familiar to me so I do not have to learn everything from the beginning. For Example: I tested the new I-phone 3GS for few days and it was really hard for me to make a phone call while driving so I had to stop and call, which is not case with any SE Phone I previously used.
SE-My compliments about the new SATIO for which I hope that soon I will be happy owner.
kal, 14 Oct 2009That's the main reason why SE is in red and they will remain. Their products will always attra... moreactually i dont know what are you talking about, bro..
daily, i never use high volume to hear a song. For me it is not necesary and i use SE headphone, i also use 3.5mm jack on my xperia and my friends use nokia then try them all. but if you want to compare the speaker pls which phone speaker will be you compared with fairly ?nokia, lg or samsung also has many phones with bad speakers quality too.
sorry my english is very bad.
Let's not forget that Pixon12 has D1 video capability. But look at the video sample that Gsmarena took for it's review...just pure crap! LOL! Want proof? Then read the review.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2009no 3.5mm jack = lack??? what is the meaning of "lack" word that you wrote ? no 3.5mm jack = ... moreThat's the main reason why SE is in red and they will remain. Their products will always attract to a small group of SE fans only. Adaptability issue. They can't have Nokia, Samsung or LG users to switch. It's good to see at least they are using microSD now. And by the way all these so called great quality sound you talk about on Walkman phones could probably be possible with their proprietary jack. Use a regular 3.5mm jack and it becomes mediocre. Try using the speakers...you will be ashamed to admit what you hear. Same goes for their charging port. They are using Li-po which requires delicate charging tech. As Europe is making it mandatory to have micro-usb for charging..I wonder what SE is going to do. Soon they will have to find a way to charge Li-Po with micro-usb or switch to Li-Ion like others.
ex-SE, 14 Oct 2009If you are not a die hard fan and just objective in your evaluation. This phone is really weak... moreyou wrote :
"-Big and bulky due to the slide out camera lens cover
-Reasonable, but not great finishing in terms of material
- UI which is much slower than the best in class of the available competitors."
you are SE hater!!!you are not neutral.everything you wrote is not right..Sorry bro!!
you must try it and compare with the other phone like omnia HD and nokia n97 then complain.
sameer, 14 Oct 2009i have used an omniaHD for 20 days ,looks are ugly like a chinese one ,batt is crap, a little ... moreDon't comment on things that you never owned.
If OmniaHD is cheap type, bulky and ugly looking chinese one, why the hell you even bought it? Fact is you never had it.
It's amazing to see how some people even believed you.
no 3.5mm jack = lack???
what is the meaning of "lack" word that you wrote ?
no 3.5mm jack = you cant hear a song ?
you can use SE jack...
i dont care about 3.5mm jack because in FACT!!!SE audio quality is very great!!
SE fans dont have any problem with SE audio quality, it is not NOKIA, SAMSUNG or LG fans, if they dont have 3.5mm jack they will have a big problem.
satio=126gm omnia hd=148gm.
But still some guy saying,satio is bulky.Just Kick on their A$$.
samsung i8910 flat out beats this phone just do a comparison and see for yourself
nokia n900 spanks it, again do a comparison
not to mention you can buy 2 to your 1 satio
and dont even bother about megapixel count cause no one is falling for it
mick, 13 Oct 2009hi everyone, What!!!!!did someone mentioned no equalizer for music in satio???is it still a s... moreNot everyone wants a phone with good sound, no one i know ever really listens to the music on thir phone without headfones! its has a sweet camera and wifi. Get with the times 'Mick'
