Sony Xperia Ray Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Conclusion: We were pleasantly surprised with the Xperia Ray. Expecting a plasticky, miniaturised Xperia Arc wannabe, what Sony Ericsson have made here is perhaps what the Xperia Neo should have been. Noticeably smaller than the Xperia Arc, arguably as thin, and lighter it has carved out a place for itself, and not just as Sony Ericsson’s ‘cheap Android phone’.
Summary: It’s a dainty little phone that packs an astonishing number of features into its stylish case. Good camera, fast to use, loads of added features from the Sony Ericsson software lab and a display that’s sharp, bright and ultra-clear. There’s nothing wrong with this one at all.
Excerpt: If you are one of those people who uses their mobile to take more pictures than a digital camera, then you may very well be interested in the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray. Find out what makes the smartphone camera so special and if there are any other worthwhile...
Excerpt: Phones have becoming physically larger in recent times, but Sony Ericsson’s latest model bucks the trend with a more pocket-friendly form factor. With its 3.3 inch capacitive touchscreen, long, thin design and 8.1 megapixel camera, is the Xperia Ray the perfect compact phone? Pinch the homescreen and you'll see all of your widgets in a top-down collection. Try shaking your phone and you'll find the tiny widgets bounce around the screen.
Pros: Excellent screen, Impressive camera features in a small handset, Solid and well built
Cons: No HDMI, Small amount of memory built in and only 4GB microSD bundled in
Conclusion: The Xperia Ray is a superb little smartphone. It's stylish and like a compact version of the Xperia Arc. We particularly like the strikingly high quality screen and photographers will find the 8MP camera a joy to use. The best part is that you get all this for a price much less than most smartphones.
Pros: Stylish and compact design, high quality screen, great cameras, smooth performance.
Cons: Poor keyboard, expected more battery life., Nothing.
Conclusion: We didn't have high hopes for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray, but - as you may have guessed - we couldn't have been more wrong. It may be small for a full touch screen, but the Ray packs a stunning 3.3-inch screen, an excellent camera, a top-notch browser and a long battery life. Our only criticism is Sony's clunky TimeScape UI, but you'll soon quickly overlook this given the phone's impressive usability.
Conclusion: There is virtually nothing we don't love about the Ray. It's compact, light with a mammoth battery that will get you through a whole day on a single charge - as long as you're a little careful. What's more, the screen is gorgeous, with exquisite detail and brilliant colours. Our initial concern about the raised edge of the screen has proven to be a non-issue. We've been using this phone exclusively for several weeks now, and it has never once bothered us.
Pros: Small, light, good battery, amazing screen, reasonable price
Cons: Perhaps not ideal for larger hands, stock keyboard isn't good
Summary: Een mooie telefoon voor een leuke prijs. Hij is vrij klein wat voor mensen met grote vingers een probleem kan zijn. Hij reageert super snel en heeft een mooi design. Is lekker licht en maakt goede foto's.
Excerpt: De todos los terminales Android, el Xperia Ray es uno de los más distinguidos y elegantes. Guarda cierto parecido con el Nokia 700, aunque lo supera con creces en funcionalidad y características
Pros: Tamaño ultracompacto, Pantalla de 300 ppp, Buen rendimiento de la batería, Interfaz Timescape de Sony, Aplicaciones y servicios de Sony
Cons: La interfaz táctil no siempre es ágil sobre una pantalla tan pequeña, Rendimiento mejorable, No tiene flash, solo usa el LED para iluminar, Calidad de la cámara
