17 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Before beginning this Sony Ericsson Satio review, we need to clear something up – Satio is pronounced Sah-tee-oh, apparently! Right, with that out the way, let’s have a look at what the Sony Ericsson Satio has to offer.

Sony Ericsson Satio (Idou)

CNET
6 September 2010
  • Summary: The Sony Ericsson Satio packs in a lot of multimedia power, particularly in the camera department, but it also has a number of annoyances. You can get a better overall experience with other handsets and for a lot less.
  • Pros: The Sony Ericsson Satio rocks a 12.1-megapixel camera with advanced editing options and video recording. The Symbian-based phone offers 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and full e-mail support. The Walkman-style music player is also a nice bonus.
  • Cons: The Satio uses Sony Ericsson's proprietary port for the USB connector and headset. The Web browser is a little clunky to navigate, and the Symbian user interface has some inconsistencies.

Review: Sony Ericsson Satio

  • Conclusion: Sony Ericsson’s new smart-phone is infuriatingly self-divisive. One half of me is saying “yeah!” due to the excellent camera and great sounding music player (once you’ve lost the rubbish headphones), but the resistive touch-screen really tarnished the whole experience for me. I’ve no doubt that eventually I would get used to the stylus, but I just don’t want to.

  • Conclusion: Despite its premium pricetag and much-hyped media skills, the Sony Ericsson Satio is a rather run-of-the-mill mobile notable only for its superb 12MP camera. Elsewhere it's something of a disappointment that won't give the iPhone 3GS or HTC Hero any sleepless nights.
  • Pros: The Satio features the finest ever camera we've seen on a mobile phone. Its 12MP sensor, coupled with a Xenon flash, delivers fantastic shots whether you're outdoors in the daytime or sat in a dimly-lit pub.
  • Cons: Sadly, in other respects the Satio comes off as distinctly average. The Symbian UI doesn't work well with the touchscreen, and you need to poke surprisingly firmly to get a response. Then there are the confusing, labyrinthine menus, which make you yearn for an iPhone or Android mobile's simplicity. The build quality feels cheap and plasticky, and the lack of a proper 3.5mm headphone input is a prod in the eye for music lovers.

  • Summary: It's Sony Ericsson's first ever S60 smartphone, running the same S60 5th Edition as the Nokia 5800, but with several Sony Ericsson extras, plenty of horsepower under the bonnet and a distinctive camera-centric tablet form factor. How well has Sony Ericsson adapted to the switch from UIQ to S60 and what's the Satio's hardware like? And can Sony Ericsson succeed where Samsung have been struggling in the battle to compete with the lesser specified Nokias?

  • Conclusion: In this brief review, we have highlighted the main features which we liked and felt could be made better in the Satio. While Sony Ericsson had intended the Satio to be a powerful entertainment smartphone, our review has found that there were areas where the Satio failed to live up to this expectation.
  • Pros: Well designed exterior keys, Good quality widescreen display, Packed with multimedia features, Impressive photos and high quality camera
  • Cons: Bulky design, Slow to start up and jerky user interface, Unresponsive resistive touchscreen, Lack of 3.5mm audio jack, Poor battery life, No HD video capture
