I've owned this for a week now and must say I'm impressed. Its my 1st smart phone, played with n97 and the iphone but neither felt right. I find the screen responsive enough, never needed the stylus anyway. Camera is great except no optical zoom which you would expect. Internet is fast (depending on network) not the best browser going but good enough. People go on about using it for days and still finding new things.........I must have a different phone. Has your usual phone stuff and a few extra bits and bobs such as quick office etc which I like, dont want loads of stuff I wont use.

Now why it didnt get a 5*, comes with no software for pc........only on memory card which I find quite annoying, once you download the files you need and then try and upload items on your phone it takes forever! Then it misses random songs from albums etc, might of just of been a minor blip.

Overall a great phone.

 Software & Application Problems?

| | See all Play64's reviews (1)

Got this phone for christmas & could not find any suitable apps for it. I was told by SE that I can use any s60 v5 software for the phone, the same as the nokia 5800.

I tried it and it works, so any software that is made for the nokia 5800, can work on this phone because SE used the same S60 v5 platform as the nokia.

This is a great phone, but you must go on the internet & UPDATE THE SOFTWARE FROM SE, (firmware Dec 2009) as soon as get this phone.

The only downsides of the phone are:
1. The poor battery life, you must remember to close all apps when you are finished with them and maybe you will get 2 days after heavy use.
2. No Kinetic Scrolling - (you must hold your finger on the screen then move it up or down when going through a list) - not like the ipod/iphone, where you can just flick the screen to speed through the list.

I am very happy with this powerful phone, its a shame SE did not fix the problems above with the (Dec 2009 update), maybe in 2010, they will give us a happy New Year.

 It's finally arrived!

It seems like I've been waiting for this phone for so long! I have tried 3 other phones in the last few months and sent them all back. At last I have my hands on the Satio and 48hrs later I'm still loving it!

Despite concerns expressed regarding the resistant touch screen [rather than capacitive] I find it extremely easy to use. My last phone had big buttons so I was concerned I wouldn't be able to text very well on a touchscreen. No such problems! The provided stylus isn't necessary unless you use handwriting recognition.

The camera is obviously the main selling point of the Satio and it does not disappoint. It has all the settings you would expect on a compact digital camera. It's also worth noting that the video playback quality is pretty amazing.

Despite some of the images of the phone floating around on the Internet making the handset look bulky and awkward, it's absolutely fine. I wouldn't call it a "snug" fit in the palm but everything is within easy reach of the thumb. It is also surprisingly lightweight.

There are so many features that it's going to take me a week or so to get round them all and test each one out. Overall though, I am extremely happy with my new Satio :)

 Why is everyone so excited??

Top 100 Mobile Reviewer

I must admit, this phone does look great. And i wanted it for my upgrade after a day i sent it back. The symbian software on it was beautifully done by sony ericsson, but it didnt stop it having the clunky factor about it and general "too much crammed into one space" feel. As much as I love SE phones as thats all i have, i was disappointed. The main reason being the touchscreen, its resistive, which means its stupidly hard to type anything on it. It really did get on my nerves and was sent back in a day. If you can cope with that, then yes it is a good phone. But it wasnt for me, i bought the Aino instead, and have never looked back. brilliant little phone!
