..and down again. Satio story ends.

Posted on 08 March 2010, Last updated on 08 March 2010 by

As promised, I took a trip into my local O2 store and as usual, they wouldn’t get a Satio out for me to try. Last time I was a potential customer. This time i’m a customer. I don’t know what’s worse.

Anyway, after trotting over to the T-Mobile store and connecting to my Mifi to the display Satio, I had a good play. The camera is, as I have already discovered, very very impressive. The ‘best pic’ function is good too. Web browsing seemed average and I was a bit disapointed with the speaker but overall, the feature set is very very impressive.

I didn’t buy one though.

The big problem is that it feels like it fell out of a Christmas cracker. The plastic is cheap and it looks like the ‘silver’ will rub off within weeks. I literally couldn’t handle it any more and walked out of the shop knowing that the Satio is NOT for me.

Sometimes I feel I’m a little bit too careful when choosing a phone but when it’s the most used peice of electronics i’m likely to buy for the next year or two, I don’t mind being a bit picky.

It looks like I’ve exhausted all phones from my ‘toplist’ now so there’s only one thing to do…wait.

    chippy, that was my first impression when I handled it late last year. It felt really “cheap”. And interesting how something as trivial(?) as build impression can kill our interest in a phone, great features or not, eh?
