I am not bothered about speed and all that but I really need to know - which one has the better camera and which one is best for the music-player. I'm also considering the Nokia Lumia 710. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks
jane, 06 May 2012thank you for the answer.. but what is APK files? Ray is my first android phone so I have litt... moreAPK file or android package file (in .apk format) is the raw file of an android application like .sis or .sisx in symbian and .jar or .jad in java phones. When you open Google Play Store/ market then choose an app to install, your phone then downloading the application's APK file from market then installing the app by extracting this file to become an executeable app. The use of app installer is for example you saw an interesting app on your friend's android ph and you want it to, no need to go to Play Store, just asked him/her to send the apk file of that app via bluetooth, after receiving the file open application installer then... voila, you also have the application without visiting Play Store. Congratulation!
Oh, also no need to remove application installer from your phone, it's only 140kB size, means nothing if you think you could conserve more free space by deleting it. In fact you don't need App2SD also, actually this feature already presents in the settings menu: Settings - Applications - Manage applications - tap On SD card tabs, you'll see the list of all the applications that can be moved to memory card, the same thing that app2sd would do.
As i write this my ray is undergoing the update to ice cream sandwich. I will give feedback once im on i.c.s. Thanks sony for the update. Active in Kenya

Only things better in the Arc S are it has a faster cpu, hdmi connection and camera button.

At the moment I have both Xperia Arc-S and Ray. Arc-S has the adge of having a bigger screen but on the other hand it doesn't have the front camera. Ray has the front camera and it works perfect. Now it depends on you, if u are not much interested in bigger screens then just go for Xperia Ray, or if u need a bigger screen then I would strongly suggest Galaxy S2 or S3.
I just bought Xperia Ray last week. It's so beautiful, handy and stylish. I just love this phone. It's fast and the skype video calls works perfect. Xperia Arc-S doesn't have the front camera that's why I have planned to sell my Arc-S and gonna keep my Xperia Ray coz it's one of the best phones I've ever used. For a bigger screen and more features I'll go for Galaxy S3 besides my Xperia Ray.
does ArcS applications work on Xperia Ray? honest answer please.it bothers me that Arc S has bogger screen that most on games can work than Xperia Ray. ANSWER PLEASE.
