AM Review: Sony Satio
3 August 2009
Summary: To some, the world needs another fancy camera phone like a gopher needs a colostomy, but others like to have the latest phones with the coolest mix of functions and looks -- and Sony’s impending Satio is designed to make the latter go weak in the knees.
Summary: Judging from its recent quarterly results, Sony Ericsson is heading for troubled waters. The company's second quarter sales plunged by a whopping 40 percent, resulting in a loss of around 200 million Euros.
Excerpt: The Satio is a fairytale of a phone. Born of Sony Ericsson ’s plan to merge its Cybershot and Walkman lines, what emerged is a conflicted device that is both beauty and beast. Let's start with the beautiful aspects of Sony Ericsson’s flagship consumer phone.

Summary: The Sony Ericsson Satio is an excellent camera phone with a great 3.5in screen, but its not a world-beater. The lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack and an inconsistent user interface detract from what otherwise is a good overall package.
Pros: 12.1 megapixel camera with Xenon flash, large touch screen, finger swipe shortcuts on home screen, excellent multimedia menu, GPS, Wi-Fi
Cons: No 3.5mm headphone jack, proprietary USB port, resistive rather than capacitive touch screen, a little chunky at the top, inconsistent Symbian user interface
Excerpt: Very much a phone for photographers this one. A nHD TFT touch screen, 3.5 inches in diameter, with a 12.1MP camera with Xenon flash and 12x digital zoom. But does the rest of the phone deliver, or is really just a very high tech digital camera?
Summary: As I mentioned earlier, it is sometimes easy to forget that this is actually a phone, not a camera and for a phone, the camera is very impressive indeed. Like many camera phones, there are limitations, such as with dynamic range, and the general lack of contrast and colour.
