Summary: I am a phone geek most of my family always get a gsm open phone, is the best way ,you have it your way without the contract you save on unlimited internet every month also. this phone was updated set up and everything,sometimes you had to press 2 0r 3 times for it to respond, outdated software,cheaply constructed, the battery cover came of easy, this hasn't changed I lost one on another Sony model 2 years ago.its a shame the only good thing was the camera and the music,...
Summary: i decided to buy this phone because of it's features plus it looks good. but when i received it and opened the box the phone looked little old because it had wearing signs. it wasnt good as new. now the camera turns on by itself and phone becomes unlocked by itself. it seems like the phone has malfunction problem.
Summary: The item is good... but the Interface is not as friendly as in the iPhone.... I will sell this to buy an iPhone... It is true, have a great camera but the data transfer is easier and faster with the iPhone... Also to get it sync (specially with mac) it is quite a nightmare...
Excerpt: "I got the Sony Ericsson Satio in early winter 2009; it has a 12 megapixel camera, which is probably the only useful feature of this phone. Even that feature is limited to the photo camera, and doesn't extend to the video camera. The Sony Ericsson Satio is a Symbian phone; this means it has a very limited application support. Therefore, it's extremely difficult to find a decent set of applications for this phone. The operating system version is S60v5, ...
Pros: Very good photo camera .
Cons: Limited apps, no updates, low quality video capture, phone often needs restarting to make calls .
Summary: I purchased this phone when it first came to market and like many others who also got one I was sold very much on the ultra powerful camera that was built in to this handset. 12.1 mega pixels to be precise! This phone worked great for me during it's first year and although the touch screen is not as responsive as some alternatives such as the IPhone it was more than adequate.
Summary: I waited for this phone to come out before renewing my contract as the reviews looked good. The most amazing feature of this phone is the 12.1 MP camera. I took it to Spain with me instead of my digital camera. The photos are fantastic. The camera has all the features you would expect from a decent digital camera.
Pros: Excellent Camera
Cons: Poor battery life, prone to crashes and freezes
