this phone is very good on music side..but on other side it have lots of software problems..such as hanging & restart again n again automatically..also spiro doesn't support themes n games.
You people stop abusing the phone so much. I was scared about buying it because of all these negative feedbacks I read here. But even thought I bought it cause it is the best looking phone in its range and it's an awesome music player too. Three days so far and the battery is now discharged for the first time (ok, I didn't use it so much but I texted a lot and went to the internet a couble of times but don't forget that a battery usually drains faster at its first month of use).
As for the lack of memory for sms which is mentioned, I kept so far 70+ massages and still didn't need to erase any plus phone memory status shows there is still 5.1mb free. Just don't save your photos and music in phone memory, that's why memory card is for!
It restarted only once when I turn the radio on for the first time.
Conversations is really good, especially because I didn't expect such a feature from a low budget phone as spiro is. It may be a bit slow some times at fast writing but it is not such annoying.
Really cool phone and in my opinion the best and prettiest at its range
Very bad phone.
1.Low battery back up.
2.low speaker volume.
3.Very poor quality camera.(feels like vga)
4.memory card is just placed in the slot.(not immersed into the slot when we press ,as used to see in all other phones)i have experiance the memory card get losen periodically.(needs to re insert in position).
5.Not good one in its class.
Nokia 5130...felt best in this class
i dont like ths phone its realy bad. i want to know can i secure all my floders indvidually like i have to secure only my message box not entire memory can i do this
Bought Spiro two weeks ago... got a welcome surprise just minutes after i brought t.The phone hanged !!! :O.
Cons: The screen often goes blank,the conversation tab is just as bad as it can get. msging in conversation is very slow. Suggesting you not to use instead switch to inbox.
Pros: good looking fone, easy to handle, Music is just amazing with the headgear provided.
Same problem of hanging when I get the phone. Need to update software. Thereafter, perfect. Experience on Sony Ericsson phones tells me, before use update softaware first.
How annoying is this phone!! unable to send text even though sufficient credit, i try to send and screen goes blank back to menu..also when im receiving sms i am unable to read them as states "corrupt message" i thought it was my network provider but from reading some of the previous comments im guessing now its the phone..1 week old, money back i think !! would not recommend to anyone....
this phone is really very bad , battery drains like anything,the phone switches off automatically
yasir, 08 Nov 2010whats model number of sony spiro ,i canot find it,i am facing many problem in this spiro phone
Got this phone two days back and then checked reviews on gsm arena. Was shocked with the reviews, but I like the phone it is cute but never faced shutdown problems all what I faced was the phone back light coming on and off, so I just deactivated flash messages and it works fine now.
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2010hey dude.pls tell me how many msgs it can STORe.Does it restarts and hangs as in these coments... morei got this fone jus 2 weeks back..it has got lots f hanging problems it reboots it self while sending mesgs nd in between conversations,it hangs after a call ..u cant end a call it simply hangs u gota keep pressing dat end call button for a while to get bac d fone to normal.Coming to the camera its worst, the picture comes dark even in a day light, nd after continuous 2 r 3 snaps it reboots it self..
-->>not good for internet usage.
My conclusion is dont go for this fone even though it works fine for 1-2 days der s lots f software problem in this fone even afer software updates..its a better avoid.The only thing good is it has an exceptional quality of music in uts earfones, dat does't make it all a good fone, there r other fones from SE with same music quality much more better than this.Plz dont go for this fone my sincere advice to all d ppl out der its jus a waste f money.
