sony-ericsson-satio-bugs

The Sony Ericsson Satio may be back on shelves after the firmware update, but many problems still persist. Here I’ll post the known issues and whether they were patched in the update.

  • Media limited to 3000 files – Fixed in latest update. Not sure if the limits been removed completely or increased, but I’ve found no problems so far. However, media files are now loading slower after the update.
  • Screen is blank when a phone call is received – Problem still persists after update. When I receive a phone call, the display stays black and so I can’t see who is calling me.

satio-firmware-update

Sony Ericsson have rolled out another firmware update for the Sony Ericsson Satio, which should be available for all handsets. I’ve tested the update on my Vodafone branded handset and the update has been detected and installed. While I haven’t had time to test it fully yet, others have been saying the phone is faster with the update and it fixes the homescreen theme problem, where no shortcuts are being displayed, only the Sony Ericsson home screen theme displays correctly. Sony Ericsson have also rolled out an update for the Aino, which has also been experiencing issues, mostly with the touch screen. While no problems have been reported with the Yari, an update is also to come for the handset. It’s also noted on the Sony Ericsson Update page, that the handset does not need to be backed up, as the update does not affect handset data, but it is of course recommended to do so if possible anyway.

While the Satio may be the first of Sony Ericsson’s Entertainment Unlimited range, the handset is actually quite opposite. If you’ve transferred previous photos and music over to your new Satio handset, like I have, depending on how much you transfer, you’ll shortly find that new pictures and videos do not show in the Media section, or on the navigation bar. At first it looks like the phone hasn’t saved the photos but, the files can be accessed through the File Manager. After a look around after experiencing this problem, I’ve find why the photos aren’t showing.

With the Satio being taken off many UK stores shelves it’s not surprising Sony Ericsson have rolled out an update very quickly. Unfortunately though, the update only appears to be for unbranded handsets. Just Another Mobile Blog reports updating an unbranded Satio, while no update was found for a Vodafone handset, which I can also confirm. Hopefully the update will be available quickly for all Satio handsets. The update has reportedly made the phones respond faster.

satio-pulled-from-carphonewarehouse

If you haven’t got hold of the Sony Ericsson Satio yet, you may have to wait a little longer. Several UK stores have pulled the phone from shelves over software issues and quality concerns. Certain applications will cause the phone to freeze, or shut down when launched. At the moment there isn’t a downloadable fix or firmware update for the handset. If however you’ve already got your Satio and are having problems, some stores are allowing customers to exchange their handset for another model.

The Nokia N97 has also been pulled from shelves leading us to believe it’s a Symbian OS issue rather than a Sony Ericsson build quality problem.
