As a user of satio,I recommend to all of you who attempt to buy satio,DON'T BUY THIS PHONE.
Why do you want to buy a nearly 2 years old phone while there are better choices out there?If you have budget,go for other Android phones or Nokia N8 if you want a better camera instead.Otherwise,go for Nokia C6-01 or C7 which featured Symbian^3 if you can't afford high-end phones.
It has very few apps or games to play with and you may get bored with it soon.Please,DON'T DO ANYTHING THAT WILL MAKE YOURSELF REGRET FOR IT.
Flickz2000, 09 Mar 2011Believe me..get any other android phone.don get satio..the worst phone I ever got..don buy son... moreDon but this phone, cz when u wan instal some game like hd game. Have a l0ng time to instal 20 mb size file, very slow phone..
I've had my Satio for 18 months now, I had it within the first week of release, primarily because the camera was so good and my own digital camera had recently broken. My reasoning was "two birds with one stone". The battery life is relatively poor, if you text regularly or use the internet, you'll average out at 24 hours-worth of battery. The touch screen isn't that sensitive, it detects my nails better than my actual fingertips. When I first had it, it regularly froze, switched itself off etc, but after a software update from the official Sony Ericsson website, it was a lot better.
The screen will automatically switch off after a certain period of time (user-defined) and there is no way to keep it on at any point. There is however, a handy light on the top of the phone which flashes green to alert you to any missed calls or text messages.
The user interface is relatively easy, and the internet browsing is pretty standard. It isn't as good as newer phones like the HTC Desire, but that is understandable due to the improvements in mobile internet in the past 2 years.
It took a while for a Facebook app to be added to the phone and that came along with the software update, as did the "conversation" tool for text messages (similar to iPhone structure i.e. your texts appear as a conversation rather than flicking between the inbox and sentbox). However, the Facebook app is rather lacking, I've seen much better versions on other phones, including Nokias that were released at the same time as this phone.
I find the fact that it doesn't have a proper headphone jack a tad annoying, it's still the SE's own jack for the hands-free kit. Very cumbersome.
On a positive note, the camera is excellent, although a bit slow to take photos, the quality is fantastic, even in low light.
Personally, if I was shopping for a phone now, I wouldn't get this because it is quite out of date, and not one of SE's best designs. I'm probably getting a HTC Desire Z next week when my phone contract is due for renewal! I would like to wait for the SE Xperia Pro - but I'm mildly concerned that model will be similar to the Satio...very promising, but a let down when actually released.
hanesten, 08 Mar 2011i just bought my satio 2 months ago ,well im a great fan of SE ,satio's lack lots of good old ... moreIt does have a messaging shortcut, you need to change the theme of the phone and there is a messaging shortcut on the home screen.

How strong is the vibrate on this phone?
Does this phone have "sleep mode clock" where the display stays on the whole time without going off?
all phones from sony ericsson are sucks .they don't have any efficiency ..so please don't buy any sony ericsson phone it give u big headache...buy apple or nokia it is good option ..
4 mounths and no problems with him. Batery a litlle short but 2 days min and 4-5max its ok for me.
No aplication instaled on him , just music and 1game. I think those ho have problems with them instal bad programs with viruses , thats why i keep away from kraked aplication.
I have this phone for a year now & i just sent it for a software upgrade a few days back & now this phone works like a super smart phone.
If you own a Satio, update the software on the phone.
It will work better than new, All the best guys
Believe me..get any other android phone.don get satio..the worst phone I ever got..don buy sony ericsson indeed
i just bought my satio 2 months ago ,well im a great fan of SE ,satio's lack lots of good old function like those previous models ,it lack of shortcut functions like messaging ,it doesnt have equalizer and doesnt have mp3 shortcut while sleep mode ,d sounds r not loud enough ,and it sometimes lagging ,but only the best is it only have a very good camera ....think u suppose can buy a better more than this ....love SE anyway .
man, 07 Mar 2011Friends tell me about it's touch...Its resistive. Its not a touchscreen, but a press screen as you need jabby motions with pressure to register 'touch'. Its not as sensitive as a 5800. Also the surface isn't scratch resistant,the more you touch the more likely it is to get scratched, There is a brilliant replacement for the satio available called the N8.
Phone, 06 Mar 2011I want to get this phone is it good?????After the N8, well NO.

As u jst said, hacking can be risky and im scared to do it. Wud u be kind enough to send me an email and gve me a clear step by step info on how to downgrade and hack my fone. I wil realy appreciate ur help firstname.lastname@example.org
Factory version - Not that impressive. Good camera, but bad for recording video. Also Low volume output. The rest is so so, just like every other phone.
Hacked Version - Better. You can cover all the weaknesses inc louder sound, widget theme + shell & better for recording. Slightly risky to set tho. Can be complicated for beginner.
Others - Apps that helps
SportsTracker - Uses GPS to track activity for running cycling etc.
Social - Nimbuzz, Opera, Whatsapp, Foursquare, Snaptu, Skype. The Usual
Games - Not that bad, but not that much.
If you can find a good source for what you want then its good.
