Anonymous, 12 Jul 2011Looks dull and uninteresting... get in line behind sgs2. Cya.But it (ray) doesn't look like an iPhone, it's so original and proofing that the designer have a brain. Cao.
It's listed in Germany at one vendor for €312. It's too early to tell but if that's indeed the street price, then I'll buy one.
In terms of hardware, this is exactly what I want. I want a compact phone with decent resolution (no gigantic, unwieldy 4,3" screen bricks, thank you very much) and I don't want to pay significantly more than €300 for it.
So yeah, the Galaxy S2 and other high-end phones are great but they're too big and too expensive for me. I can live with last year's hardware (and that's pretty much what you get with the RAY) as long as the price is right. And there's good chance that this will be the case with the RAY.
Nice, but it's small and very expensive. 555$~480 euro so Galaxy S2 or Optimus 2x or Sensation is best choice
Pantes, 12 Jul 2011You are wright,nothing is perfect!)but i know and you know that brands you named has drawbacks... moreI have used older SE phones (Walkman phones) and they were great at the time, never failed on me, hell I could easily use it for another two years. So definitely, the build quality was there. But, the Xperia line is new territory for SE - they are new to Android too. And in that, you see that other companies have more experience, started earlier, bring out their models earlier, and also bring out models that trump the SE alternative at any price range.
That gives me the impression SE is not the place to be for Android (yet). What country the maker is from, really doesn't matter. Besides, Ericsson is European, not Japanese.
I have seen this phone here on gsmarena for preorder for 349 euro that isnt that much and remebre once the phone is launch the price will drop down fast becourse of competion i think SE phones are not moore expensiv then others its always depents on where you buy them i use to buy them on the internett look always for chipest price and of cours without contract (simfree)in the long run it will pay off
What this phone has that makes it successful are the Arc features in a metal body that not bigger than a W902. No other vendor offers this. Great phone!
Dual core? No, but who needs it nowadays?
Too small display? That's the reason why it was build - why don't you buy a Neo or Arc?
what this phone needs to become successful would be a lower price, not because dual core iphone copycats from samsung and LG appeared at the same price range but because the mass market needs phones that provide high end functions at mid-high price tag like the old but famous K750. i don't care if its not dual core as Gingerbread isn't optimized to use multicore CPUs and we don't need to do a split time number crunching on a phone, it's the GPU that needs speed bump. i wouldn't buy a phone just because i've got all the features i can imagine on on paper.
Anyone want to bet this phone will be $450 or under off contract?
They are charging $599 at Sony's Sonystyle store for the Xperia Arc. No way will this phone be that much. This phone may end up being about $400 or so.

Good luck for everybody!!!))

However if you compare one-on-one each of them (except maybe the X10 Mini pro) has one or a few drawbacks/lesser specs compared to an equally priced handset of either Samsung, LG, etc.
Why bother producing this phone when the Arc is already out? Concentrate on a better spec phone, which they must be doing.......
Nice but overprice...with that value u can get a dual core processors alredy...with better specs...still a nice lookin phone
555 $ when Wave2 is now only 250 $ ? They don't want to sell it or what ?
Daryuste, 12 Jul 2011Too expensive for something that has nothing new!You don't understand the most important thing!)All se phones are in good way different from all other manufactures!)Look at this phone all tech spec are very good,it has everything you need and can use,BUT it is also thin 9.4 mm,it is very copmact for such specs,great display,four different colours,1500 mah battery good sound,try to find something similar on the market and you will understand what am i talking about!!!))
this is one of a kind tech style!)
