Anonymous, 07 Sep 2011if you observe, all the negative reviews about the battery life have been posted by the same user..You are right, all posted by me because I'm one of the first owner of the Ray.
SE already replied to my my e-mail, with their suggestions of saving battery. I found the problem to be with Data Network. If I turn off Data Network access, then the phone only use up approxmatly 3% of the battery in 4 hours' time - just on standby condition.
I never have to turn off Data Network with my iphone 4, nor the samsung SGSII and they can still last a day instead of the Ray lasting only a few hours. WHY? What's the reason??!! Can you explain?
can anyone help me... is battery really so bad? am planing to buy ray... pls
Turn off the backgroun data and you well get an amazing battery life ( 2-3days of heavy use)....
I need more post about battery life. please! I love this phone, but now I'm confused ...
Using it for 2 days now. Charged yesterday morning, still going strong with over 60% left. Despite having downloaded a whole load of apps, and running Go Launcher.
Don't see any problem with battery life, much better than my old Samsung Wave

playing xperia ray features.
xperia ray or xperia mini pro.
Which is better.
I had no worry about the noise prblm in xperia mini pro.
But of the both,which has better battery backup.
Please suggest me.
I am in love with this phone based on the specs alone! But all I've read for weeks has been release dates for UK, Middle East, India and Asia. The phone is compatible with AT&T, so when is it coming to the USA?! I'm dying from anticipation!!!
jm, 07 Sep 2011i bought xperia ray last saturday in grey market here in the philippines, the reserve battery ... morehow much is your xperia ray? where did you bought it? I'm also from phils and I'm choosing between ray and neo.. Thanks in advance
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2011if you observe, all the negative reviews about the battery life have been posted by the same user..yeah i think he/she knows that xperia ray will sell like hotcakes in every market that's why he made such a " bad review " for this phone especially in the battery.
i guess that person doesnt really own an xperia ray because he doesnt know what he's saying especially about the battery.
xperia ray battery is far better than xperia arc, samsung galaxy s and htc desire base on my actual usage

i bought xperia ray last saturday in grey market here in the philippines, the reserve battery life for newly purchased phone lasted for 4 hours for heavy use. (AS IN HEAVY)
i charge the phone on sunday 8am until 1200nn (yeah i leave it charging for 4 hours) from 1200nn sunday until now tuesday afternoon the phone is still alive with 10% battery and the up time is 47h22m30s. (medium usage only) not yet tried for heavy use and stand by mode. base on my observation the battery life is better than the other android phone especially for my former xperia arc only lasted for 1 day medium usage, samsung galaxy s less than a day and and worst htc desire lasted for just 14hrs or less.
overall xperia ray is superb phone with average battery stamina..
pls pls pls do not compare android OS to iOS as we all know anroid OS consumes so much battery due to running background application that cannot be killed. iOS is battery saver OS.
To increase battery life you could install JuiceDefender + disable data when not using + disable both options 1.Use wireless networks and 2.Use GPS satellites on My Location. I've used this on a Xperia X8 and the battery life increased from 1 day to 2 days and somethimes even more. I'm curious if that will work also on Ray.
Bought xperia ray a week before.. impressive built from sony ericsson, very handy, display fails infront of super amoled plus display. good camera and sound quality. good battery backup 2- 3 days with 42 mins voicce calls, 30 sms, 1 hr 30 mins wifi net browsing, 2 hrs music playback, 20 mins navigation, 15 photos, 45 mins video playback, 30 mins operating the phone
overall excellent phone
