yes, this phone really sucks, it restarts itself often and hangs most of the time, the music is not good as well, the bass dont work, poor music quality and the volume is a problem also, the battery drains too fast, everyday i charge this phone even though im not playing music, so all those people who wants to buy SE spiro, read these reviews before you make a big mistake in choosing spiro

ash, 27 Dec 2010bass eq in my spiro not working... is there any solution to it ??? plz anyone help....yeah bass equaliser on my spiro too not working. unless se provides another update nothing can be done.

I bought this phone for my wife, it's perfect for her basic calls and texting but the battery only lasts 2 days.
Is this normal? the phone is hardly used, the brightness is turned right down, no wallpaper or screen saver etc. the only thing that I cant turn off is the small E above the signal strenth for edge I'd assume, don't know if it uses any power. Anyone else got poor battery life???
Attention all those who r planning to buy a 5k-ranged phone. BUY SONYERICSSON CEDAR. Although SPIRO luks slightly better than CEDAR yet if we cmpare both frm software perspective SPIRO is nothing in front of CEDAR. Cedar can store about 90,000+ msgs in its internal-memory ( + in memory-card) & also supports themes, equipped wid 3G, better camera, changable musicplayer themes, megabass, fast processor even wid an 8GB card, WidgetManager 2.0, preloaded maps etc. which r UNAVAILABLE IN SPIRO. If u want a phone wid decent luks and a completely satisfying post-buying user xperience, go 4 Cedar.......
priya, 30 Dec 2010i m puzzled between sony zylo and sony spiro!!!are they same???can anyone suggest which one to... morebuy zylo.
but spiro and zylo are different, from range and quality. spiro is a low end in price and also a lil' bit low in quality. not too different with W205 whichis slow response even fashionable. zylo is a mid-range walkman with some extra fiture. the price's not too high coz it comes without standard walkman headset, pc-suite and low-cost packaging.
zylo is more recomended in recent walkman bloodline, even compares with yendo which comes with touchscreen.
if you decide to to buy walkman branded, it means you buy for sound quality, not other fiture like camera or others.
but if you're a music oriented and looking for a cheap walkman with good quality, buy W200. it's the cheapest but the performance's much better than W205 and W302, even compares with spiro and yendo.
@eypi: a phone sick.. same here i also encountered that b4 and other more deffect...
this phone cant viewed other incoming messages you need to exit and then go to inbox again to read some new messages... when you're in the conversation mode, it is so.. slow loading the messages... when it is full and u have to delete some messges it is always restarting again and again... i've changed this unit like 3x... but still the same!!!

if problems persists sell your phone and buy a cedar or zylo
this phone sucks.it can't view pictures in landscape mode, it can't send more than one file at a time via bluetooth, and its ram is too damn tiny it sometimes can't handle simple stuff like replying to a message and you have to switch off and on the damn thing.
I updated the software just last night, but to hell with the updates that do little to nothing.
Its amazing mobile i love it with usefull option happy new year to all
