Summary: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray stands out in a crowd of gargantuan smartphones like a ray of hope for those who want unrivaled hardware performance and yet, appreciate the form factor of feature phones.
Conclusion: Almost nothing went missing when Sony Ericsson turned the magnification down to change the arc into the ray. The HDMI port was dropped out, which is a pity. Had the Xperia ray been able to pair with an HDTV, the screen size would've been irrelevant.
Pros: Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support, 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 3.3" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels) on Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine, Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread, 1 GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chi...
Cons: Screen viewing angles could have been better, No smart dialing, Loudspeaker has below average performance, No DivX/XviD support, Non hot-swappable memory card, No HDMI port (the arc and the Neo have one)
Conclusion: To summarize our impressions from the tiny phone – it is tempting to dismiss the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray as a less-capable version of the Xperia arc, but what you get is in fact a more compact variant, without sacrificing much but an HDMI port.
Pros: High pixel density display, Design-conscious chassis, Good loudspeaker, Dual mics for noise-cancellation and stereo sound capture
Cons: Camera could be better, LED light doesn't serve as automatic flash
