Hey guys, or anyone who is an owner of the xperia ray please tell me how i can use the tv off animation? i bought my ray a day ago and its ver 2.3.3 and when i press the power button it normally goes black but doesn't show the tv off animation, how do i activate this please help
This is my third android,(last one was desire) and I must say this is really first one for which I could can fully replace my E52. This phone is truly fantastic. I am not talking features, camera, facebook, etc... (which is on par with other mid performance models), here I am talking about size. It feels like a normal phone which can fit into pocket and can be used normally in one hand...just fantastic
Just got Ray for a week and I love it. It's a high-end phone with a mid-range price. Tight integration with FB blew me away and I am not really an FB fan, but it pulls the photos right into the gallery. Skype Video works. TrackID works. One problem I have is the headset, which picks up and amplifies scratches on the flat conductor.
Satya, 03 Oct 2011There is NO video calling facility.Yes there is. I have used Fring for video calling and Skype says it supports this phone too, even though I haven't tried with Skype.
Now I am also an owner of the X-ray....
awesome phone.... couldnt find any problems as other people mentioned.
About week ago I was considering to buy Lg Optimus Black now I'm not that sure... Apparently Sony Ericsson Xperia ray is about same size as LG OB and it has better battery life (at least that's what these reviews are telling). Does anyone know to tell which one is better to use in practise?
i am planning to buy this phone,,,but really confused about its screen responsiveness,,,all sites saying different story. so plaease someone who are using this phone tell me about the screen responsiveness...
"A standard 3.5mm audio jack and the mini-HDMI port complete the connectivity tally. Unfortunately, there's no HDMI port as on the Xperia arc and the Neo."
Does this have a TVout through 3.5 mm jack or a mini HDMI port . In a nutshell can this power an external display?
It is a great phone for my needs and i have used the iphone 4 and you won't notice the difference at 297ppi. Good phone for those on a budget
Ray also has the new keyboard with Swipe function. Now when the reviews got the device this software was not out, so I understand that typing was not easy.
With swipe turned on it is a bliss. I mean really joyful to use. Could not find a video to prove it but I searched and found a comment on this vid:
Ah finally, You guys took quite a while to write a review for this baby. I'm getting this no matter what.
ajay, 29 Sep 2011hey read the final verdict too...and they have given it 4.5/5
There is no ... moreThe final verdict does not change the fact that RAY have some really big problems, and I have not read any reviewer that dare say anything but good things in the final words about any phone they have reviewed. These phone-review-sites are depending on the support and advertising from the big phone-companies, so they have to hide their real opinoion of their reviewed phones in the "fine print".
The facts remain, Ray does NOT have a scratch-resistant screen, and the screen is very unresponsive, and RAY can not even handle the beautiful Flux free live wallpaper!
Ray does not even have a camera-flashligt, but only a led-light that the user have to turn on before taking any photo or video!

There is no doubt about it – never mind a rabbit, Sony Ericsson has pulled a gem out of the hat here. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is a joy to use (for 99% of tasks) and we're seriously impressed with the form factor and how it's squeezed it all in.
The only issue we have is that the remaining 1% of tasks that are less pleasurable to do with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray (typing on the screen, for example) really do affect usage, so this is a handset you should try out before you buy.
The beauty is that if typing is your only gripe with the Xperia Ray, then the Xperia Arc will provide you with an almost identical experience, albeit in a larger form factor.
But that's also the problem – the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is not massively different to the rest of the Xperia line, which is starting to feel like its saturating the market with 'me too' handsets that don't offer anything uniquely different.
Not that this will matter to the majority of buyers who, like us, will be won over by its small size.
And there is no getting away from it – if you want something small that packs a punch and don't fancy Scrappy Doo in your pocket, then the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is definitely a very worthy contender for consideration.
