can we add basic things to this phone like dictionary and funky colorful new themes??
I changed the phone today. It has the same issue with the microsd card. When I will buy and try a new one, I will tell you; but for now I think it's the card.

Last time I said the battery lasts 2/3 days but now I think the battery lasts 2 days with normal battery use.
Ah yes and I just discovered that the alarm has vibration but I can't turn it off, witch freaks me out actually; I like to wake up nice with a discreet sound, not a damn vibrator witch scares me :))
That means I need to create a profile for the night, without vibrating alert, and after the alarm won't vibrate in the morning.

I recieved the phone 3 days ago as a gift.
I learned it inside out and this is my opinion.
I am a DJ also, and trust me when I tell you that this phone sounds really good, and really loud also(if you are on a bike, you don't hear any cars near you). The headphones are cool, and the radio sounds ok and loud. The equalizer has 4 presets "normal","bass","voice" and "treble boost". All are working except the bass preset. You can't hear the diference between bass and normal. And it has another option, stereo widening, witch with headphones sounds bad really.
The speaker sounds loud and ok, depends if you have a 320kb file or radio :)
It has a very nice design, rounded, fells nice when you touch it.
The display is nice and the colors are real.
I charged the battery 1.5 days ago and i listened today for 4 hours radio, and now it's at 25%.
I believe that the battery lasts like 2-3 days with normal use + radio and photos.
The photos are 2Mp, at sun light they are ok, but at the room light, sometimes they are a little "foggy"
Now coming at the negative stuff:
It has 5MB memory so it runs with a millisecond delay(but it's not so a big issue)
The blue-tooth takes longer then other SE to find other phones(instead of 5 sec it takes 10-15), but it works eventually.
On the round keyboard if you press down it executes the program TrackID, witch is really cool if you need it, but I DON'T NEED IT and I CANNOT change that key with another shortcut, I'd like to enter the agenda when pressing down for example.
From when I started to use it, it has blocked for a couple of times for different reasons.
Once the bluetooth icon would not dissapear.
Twice Java blocked and it was working really slow.
Today I listened to the radio and I wanted to make a picture and when I entered the phone menu the "enter/ok" key was not working!
Each time I restarted the phone.
Ah yea and the really cool part is that I have a Micro sd card of 512MB from and old nokia. It works really fine. I put it in the phone it works. After one hour i cannot use it because the phone does not recognize the files in the card. I press the volume keys on the side of the phone and I see a card with 470MB free space. That happened a couple of times especially if I have a ring-tone that's one the card. If I receive a call, the ring-tone starts and blocks at second 1 and after you need to restart the phone for the card to work again.
Each time that happens, you need to restart the phone or take the card out and put it in.
And I forgot to tell you that on the microsd card it is written Nokia! Perhaps it's not working good for that reason, but i know myself with IT and stuff and I think it's a normal card that doesn't have anything special and it should work!
Tomorrow I will go and change my phone with another Spiro, and I will test another "neutral" microSD card.
I hope my new phone will work without restarts :)
Well my final comment is:
IF the software was working fine and the card also, I would buy it.
For little money you get a phone with a really good mp3/radio player and an "ok" camera and a phone with a reasonable battery!
I hope this review helps someone :)
I will tell you later if my new phone works fine.
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2010yup u can use it..Thanks for reply, by the way, can I use it as a modem and if yes then how about the speed in EDGE network?
sayon, ofcorse the Zylo is better, but this is a budget phone, the Zylo is twice the price so obviously it will be slightley better, but if you are looking for a budget phone, this is the one to get, it has a decent camera, facebook apps, IM/MSN, and the best part...it is like the onley phone under £60 that will take a 16GB MEMORY CARD!
MOST ONLY TAKE LIKE 2/4GB!!!
BlueShark, 02 Sep 2010Guys can I use Opera mini in this mobile? Have anyone tested yet?yup u can use it..
Mac, 02 Sep 2010This is definitly a sagem phone... i already bought the s312 and now regretting it... Dont buy... moredefinitly sagem?
You bught s312,and just because it,you said that spiro is sagem?
This is not sagem,and i think you are a nokia fan boy because you definetly promote and provocat people to use nokia,,through make a stupid isue about sagem
This is definitly a sagem phone... i already bought the s312 and now regretting it... Dont buy this one its a waste of money if you really want low end music phones go for nokia xpress music 5130, x2, x3 which has superb sound quality but you'll hav to get separate earphones because the supplied earphones are not that good...but if ur planning on buying sony ericsson then i suggest you buy the high end ones like w995...
low internal memory, 29 Aug 2010thanx for your reply. but i wonder if any one has technical knowledge abt this. i dont know wh... moreGo for Zylo...its better. The traditional Fastport generate good music than the handy 3.5. in my experience. otherwise go for Samsung Champ. its cool. I have seen it. nice phone. but dont use it for msg writing and dont expect fast internet. Zylo should be the choice. For low price Range Naite should be the best choice. best of luck. bye
And just for the protocol - I tried with good headphones, not only with this that come with the phone
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2010howz d bass quality in headphone?Bass is very poor, in fact I didn't notice improvement even when I chose the "bass" equalizer, there is no bass at all. I bought this phone mainly for playing music with it but I am totally disappointed.
