Sony Ericsson Satio (Idou) review: Sony Ericsson Satio (Idou)

 

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.

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.

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.

Sony Ericsson Satio review: Shooter by vocation

 

Sony Ericsson have long ago shown that they are not afraid of any challenge, producing handsets that have claimed a top spot on the market. There are still plenty of fans from those good old days that would love to see another market-leading device...

3.5" 16M-color resistive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution ; 12 megapixel state-of-the-art autofocus camera ; LED and xenon flash, active lens cover ; VGA@30fps video recording ; Symbian OS 9.4 with S60 5th edition UI, spiced up with a...

Xenon flash is not adequately powerful ; The S60 5th edition UI isn't to the best in class standards ; No 3.5mm audio jack or a standard USB port ; No DivX or XviD support out-of-the-box ; No smart or voice dialing ; Playing flash videos in the browser...

A look at what's between the XPERIA X1 and the Satio is enough to tell you what Sony Ericsson have been up to for the past year. A top-dog Cybershot (C905) and an all-round Walkman (W995) were both compelling enough but none would be trusted to top the...

Sony Ericsson Satio Reviewed

 

In this review, we look at the Sony Ericsson Satio. It is an attractive phone with a staggering 12 megapixel camera. In this review, we look at the user interface, the design, the features on offer, and the performance before we deliver a final verdict.

The Satio was meant to revive Sony Ericsson at a time when it was flagging. It is a truly admirable smartphone, with some great features – not the least of which is a powerful phone camera. Putting the camera aside for a while, the phone is a little...

Sony Ericsson Satio

 

Three months after the initial announcement, does the Satio still impress? Even though we have to wait until early Q4 to see this phone, it will probably be the only 12 megapixel camera phone available. The large 3.5" 640 x 360 pixel display is...

Previously nicknamed as Idou, Sony Ericsson has given its latest 12-megapixel capture wonder a new lease of life by calling it, Satio.

Sony Ericsson Satio

 

Sony is set to release this futuristic number in the very near future, but can it compete with the Apples and Storms of the industry?

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...
