Video: 10 minute hands on with the Sony Ericsson Satio

| June 28, 2009 | Reply

Generation The Phone House, has a 10 minute video looking at the Sony Ericsson Satio – one of the three major S60 5th Edition handsets of 2009, competing with Samsungs i8910 and Nokia’s N97.

It’s interesting to note the differences both Samsung and Sony Ericsson have done to, perhaps, improving the S60 interface – e.g. look at the Satio’s media player.

I’ve ranted about the Satio/Nokia thing before >>here<< so I won’t go over it again, except for stating my love for the imaging prowess of the Satio.

  1. Xenon.
  2. Camera/Video switch.
  3. Media button (unbelievably convenient, why Nokia took it out from the N97, I don’t know.)
  4. 16:9 photos. Takes advantage of the screen ratio, looks good on the phone, also fits most modern computer screens better (not sure if it does 16:9 video as an option, you see 4:3 though in the video)

The MP count, I actually would not have minded if it was 5 or 8, so having 12MP is rather a bonus. We’ve seen in samples it performs quite well, getting a lot more detail than the growing standard of 8MP. When you’d need that extra detail for a point and shoot maybe a rare occasion, but it’s nice to have the option.
