Sony Ericsson “clear up” Satio battery as misunderstanding

Remember Ander’s Satio, with a 1350mAh battery? Well Last100 received an email and a call from Sony Ericsson, to explain that this had been a misunderstanding. Apparently, it is a 1000mAh battery but, the first 0 had been half scraped off, making it look like a 3. Obviously, the second 0 must have also been partly scraped off to look like a 5. Not forgetting, that the battery is under the battery cover most of the time, except when changing batteries or sim card. Which unless it’s had a new sim card in every few minutes, it’s very hard to believe that it really was a 1000mAh battery.

  2. I’ve personally just sold my Satio and got an iPhone instead, much easier to use and battery life is better. Losing the 12 megapixel camera though, I had to have that, so have gone out and bought a separate camera. One thing I will say about the battery on the Satio, for the first few days to a week, the battery was rubbish, however since then, the battery has been better and lasted 2-3 days, which I could cope with, rather than every day. I don’t know about 3 but, many companies were offering an exchange on the handset. But, if you can cancel the contract, do so while you still can and I suggest getting a different phone. The problems will most likely be fixed, but it depends how long you’ll have to wait, or rather, how long you can wait.

  3. I am facing the same problem with the battery I had a spare battery with me when I
    leave home but that should not be the case. I can’t understand why the people in sony
    ericsson never measure the power consumtion of this phone and use the right batteries? DAMN!!
