  • Summary: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray's small display causes a few headaches when it comes to typing, but it's hard to fault any other aspect of the design. As a mid-range Android phone, it takes some beating.
  • Cons: Screen is very small; battery life could be better.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray Review

  • Summary: This is a very unique phone, without a shadow of a doubt. Think of a slim phone, and then squeeze that imagination a bit more. Surprisingly good performance and a build quality that feels better than the price bracket this phone plays in. Will work for someone who wants a sleek phone, but those with slightly stubby fingers will find the slim display a bit tough to use. Doesn't take away the fact that it is a smart looking phone.
  • Pros: Good performance, Extremely slim form factor, Battery holds up well
  • Cons: Slim display wont be comfortable for everyone, On-screen keypad in portrait mode is uncomfortably cramped

  • 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. Actually, the fact that the 8MP Exmor R camera didn't perform as well as we expected, and also that the LED on the back has to be used as a light instead of automatic camera flash, are the only letdowns we experienced with the...
  • 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

Review: Sony Ericsson Xperia ray

Techtree
23 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The 8 megapixel snapper comes with a single LED light for company. It's not your normal flash though, since it can only be toggled on and off like a lamp. The resulting images offer a reasonable amount of detail, while keeping noise levels acceptable. However, the colours look dull and the camera has a tendency to randomly overexpose shots.
  • Pros: Sleek design; Smooth interface; Great sound quality.
  • Cons: Lacklustre camera; Cumbersome portrait keyboard; No DivX \ XviD support; Lacks AMOLED display.

  • Conclusion: There are plenty of little added extras on the Xperia Ray including GPS navigation with A GPS support, digital compass and Google maps. This comes with turn by turn instructions of how to get to you destination, voice directions and points of interest so no need to get lost again. If you use your phone for work then the document viewer will come in handy.
  • Pros: 8 mega-pixel camera, Android v2.3 Gingerbread OS, LED-backlit LCD capacitive touch screen
