Sony Ericsson U10i Aino - Pocket-lint

 

Packed with features and a full set of tech specs, the Aino is a unique offering, but doesn't hang together quite right or offer the flexibility of other

Build and hardware design, BBC iPlayer, PS3 link, DNLA certified, dock and MH100 Bluetooth headphone adapter

Operating system looking dated, lacks customisation and app options that rivals offer, battery life, 8MP camera flawed

The Sony Ericsson Aino offers features galore, but fails to wrap them into a package that really wows. There is a lot on offer here, but you feel like you have to work for it at times, finding the best route to get to the content you want. The link to...

Sony Ericsson Aino review

 

Will PS3 connectivity make this a mid-range media marvel?

Good GPS signal ; Easy to use media interface ; Decent build quality ; Well laid-out interface ; BBC iPlayer included in the box

Laggy operating system ; Poor battery life ; Sporadic PS3 connectivity ; Constantly updating memory card ; High price for a feature phone

A phone that looks great on paper, but a large number of bugs scupper it in actual use

Sony Ericsson Aino - First Look - Pocket-lint

 

This is one to consider if you're looking at the Samsung i8910 or LG Arena, but it's no guaranteed leader

Remote Play content from your PS3, easy to use keypad, slim and small, Media Go function lets you easily sync your handset with your PC, 8-megapixel camera

Touchscreen isn't touch all the time, you can't access games via the Remote Play, beyond the Remote Play it's just another Sony Ericsson handset

Sony Ericsson claim that when the Aino comes out it will offer unrivalled entertainment on the go, and while we wouldn't agree that it is totally unrivalled, we would agree that it's fairly comprehensive.

It may not be top of the Sony Ericsson range but it is one of the best.

Elegant design, Easy to use, Excellent call quality

Pricey apps, Slow to operate, Limited LED flash range

Sony Ericsson Aino review

 

Unfortunately, a top heavy design, the touchscreen's a perplexing limitations and a frustrating implementation of the Remote Play feature make the Sony Ericsson Aino difficult to recommend.

The Sony Ericsson Aino's ability to wirelessly connect a PS3 is a great feature, but the limited touchscreen functions and its top heavy design diminish its wider appeal.

Sony Ericsson Aino: Review

 

The Sony Ericsson Aino handset follows on from the company's flagship handset the Satio , and first impressions are generally positive. The Aino is a reasonable size as it fits nicely in the hand, and with dimensions of 104 x 50 x 15.5mm it doesn't...

Sony Ericsson Aino Review

 

It's been a long time coming, but Sony Ericsson has finally released a handset outside of Japan with a tall display (240×432 pixels) that gives the models based on the traditional user interface a bit more life. In fact, with the larger display, the...

The new ‘Entertainment Unlimited’ range from Sony Ericsson is looking like a very exciting competitor to Nokia’s Nseries range. The Satio may be the flagship, but the Aino is the jewel in the crown. It may not have the same potential for expansion or...

Sony Ericsson Aino smartphone

 

Its semi-touch operation feels awkward, but for PS3 owners the Remote Play console integration has definite appeal.

We entirely see the point of a user interface offering quick access to media features, but surely this could have been coupled with full touchscreen access for all remaining features. Being neither fully touch nor fully non-touch is just irritating....
