Batterys in general nowadays do not require full charge/drain, rinse & repeat, however most manufacturers advise full charge and drain & repeat on first few cycles. I myself didnt need 8hrs charge from out the box, it required about 2 hrs maximum. Battery performance has been exceptional so far in past 5 days, only requiring a charge twice (includes 1st initial charge) and still have 68% battery remaining, this is light usage however and i deactivated bluetooth, auto data downloads and the wifi useage is 1 hr a day.
I bought mine from www.mobiles.co.uk, part of Carphone Warehouse Group, arrived next day in black with screen protector, extra earplugs and a 4 gig micro sd card. I got the phone for free on a 24 month Orange contract worth a mere £12.85 a month after the 9 month free redemption (£20.50 a month pre redemption). Very very happy with this model and glad i bought it :)
FiFi, 12 Sep 2011So in Sweden (http://www.swedroid.se/42624/test-av-sony-ericsson-xperia-ray) they get a typica... moreIn Estonia we get live headset and screen protector bundled. So it is regional I guess.
FiFi, 12 Sep 2011This might be a general question, but is it really necessary to have a first-8-hour charging? ... moreHi Fifi,
Haha,i always do a first time charge on my new mobile battery for 8hrs,its a personal practice.As for subsequent charge,once it is 100% i will disconnect it.The battery still lasts me or a good 2 1/2days,24hrs connecting to my bluetooth headset.I asked my friend from singapore to get it.He was skeptical in me getting the phone saying why i'm going backwards for the screen size ,it should be small to big instead from big to small.
how come some models have the livesound hifi headset included and others do not???? i want to buy it on contract but dont know what i will be getting
Guys! you're missing a bunch of GOOD questions there, asked by FiFi. Let's run the discussion on'em.
And yes, I agree. The rating system is totally messed up!
X ray is back
this is the deal
go SE XPERIA
RAY OF LIGHT
love 2 c its on d 8.6 rate,hope no sabotase again.
gaks.., 12 Sep 2011what is gsmarena doing about rating of the phones? First of,8.7 to 7.7 in one day. And then ... morei also noticed that, i was shocked when i saw xperia ranked at no.3 since in a couple of days it was out in the top 20. what happen gsmarena?
what is gsmarena doing about rating of the phones?
First of,8.7 to 7.7 in one day.
And then 7.7 to 8.7 in one day.
Is the rating done really by voting or any mistake in rating the xperia ray?
Jon, 08 Sep 2011I just got my ray yesterday.I can truly said the battery life is good.I charged for a full 8hr... moreThis might be a general question, but is it really necessary to have a first-8-hour charging? U know, I haven't found this requirement for Apple products.
Jon, where did you get Ray from this soon??!! UK?
Jellal, 09 Sep 2011now I love this phone Sony Ericsson should launch an Ray S just like they did on Arc, with OTG... moreIs this USB on-the-go, which is XX-cool, hardware or software feature? cuz they say in android 4, the feature's gonna get added:
So in Sweden (http://www.swedroid.se/42624/t...-xperia-ray) they get a typical headset, but in UK (http://blog.clove.co.uk/2011/0...monstration) they get a cool in ear live sound hi-fi headset.
I also found Mat Smith (http://recombu.com/news/sony-e....html#photo) complaining about the absence of a screen protector, but again the guy in UK takes one right outta the box!!!
IS IT GONNA BE REGION-BASED?
What? I can't believe they'd purposefully vote this down! Well, I'm voting it all to 10 every 2 hours!
pleaae dont buy this fon... it is not smart .. i have it and i am stuk with it
Although Ray has got 8MP camera, quality of photo not as good as my iphone 4 - the picture came out too bright & white; not as natural or real as the iphone 5MP camera, I'm very surprised.
The front camera is terrible, forget about using it for taking picture.
I'm in Osaka, Japan at the plesent moment. I've been here for 3 days already - for business & holiday.
Since I'm roaming, the "Roaming Data" function is on , so I do not encounter any Data charges. I use WiFi whenever there is a connection. The hotel where I'm staying do not provide WiFi service in guest rooms. Anyway, I've my laptop with me in my hotel room, so I do not need to use the phone for, i.e. Skype call or chat message.
The battery is providing amazing standby time in this scenario, I checked the battery condition, and it registerd 1 day 19h 30min on battery, and the phone still register 67% battery left!
I still like to find out why when Data Access is allowed, this phone drain battery extremely fast!?
BTW, this SE Ray is also available in Japan only recently. I can see Advertising on Japanese TV station quite often.
I love this phone, but wait till the price drop, now SDG.$586 my current phone sgs2 battery too fast flat. i think smaller screen good for the battery.
tSon, 10 Sep 2011the vote score is not important (as least with me), there are many ways to effect them.I think, SE haters make the voting get down... It is usually done by Samsung fans, Nokia fans, and Non SE fans...
They don't want their vendor defeated by SE... So, They did a false opinion about SE Phone by doing that...
