I understand what you mean. Thou a man myself, I bought it for the same reasson, size. I used a Nexus S which is better than Ray, but what I love about this phone is the size. It is not long ago when we wanted our phones as small as can be, hence why don't understand why they are making bigger phones. It is true that the fonts ar quite small, but I am on my late 30's, so I still can read. In the end of the day all I want is a small phone I can carry, to have wifi and a decent camera and eventually to use some of the applications(Facebook, Twitter,Skype etc). I do not want a huge phone to replace a computer, as that is impossible, anyway!
As I travel a lot, I always have my tablet with me, so for other activities (reading, HD games) I can use the Pad instead of the phone. In the end of the day, a phone is a phone...regardless to how smart it is.
It is funny, once again, how a small Blackbbery(bold) is not considered "girlish" but this phone is.
I couldn't care less about what people think, so go ahead and buy your husband a Ray...:))
I find this phone has great features and has a good feel, price appears to be about average but when on contract it hardly breaks the bank.
With it's 8mp camera photos are great until you zoom right in it can look fuzzy so I wonder what mega pixel the sensor is.
720 HD recording works very well and it is a good job it comes with a 4gb card.
Being Android, there are plenty of apps to play about with not mention the ones pre-installed.
One big thing that bugs me is the way the photo gallery works and you have no file manager.
Only problems I have had with this phone is it often decides not to login to apps such as facebook, google, sony etc and the internal sensor doesn't like cases with magnetic clasps.
Friends I bought SE XPeria Ray and used for 15 days. Though overall its a good phone, but It has one special problem : It has some issued in wifi connectivity. With some routers/wifi modems, the moment it connects, it will disconnect all other connected devices and then it will also disconnect. I tried by exchanging Handset, modem everything, but nothing worked. Finally returned phone to Sony Ericsson. So all users pl check your wifi connectivity.
this is my 4th week using the ray (st18a). the touch screen is Not responsive as iphone, if you have multi apps open, u can fell the lag when u switch between them or open apps. iphone4s is much smoother. battery only last for 13-14hr, I listen 2hr music, SMS alot, so I have to charge once I got home. reason I like the phone is it's small, I don't like big phone, it can tethering & hotspot without rooted the phone. camera and video recording pretty good, I give it 7 from 1-10 over all.

i already have seen xperia ray being sold here and i love how it looks.. i want this for my husband.. he doesn't like big phones.. it's perfect but i am worried about some feedbacks regarding its touchscreen being not so responsive.. is it really not responsive? or can it be fixed with proper settings?
so far, this issue holds me back for buying one..
thanks. God bless all!
Sony ericsson india sucks. they have not launched the ray in white and neither can anyone have seen the livesound headset. very bad move by SE
You should choose this or Neo. The onscreen keyboard is totally funcional. And this has a bigger screen, easy to type.

I only stated that it had one where as the arc did not. This is one thing that the Ray has over the Arc.
Although I cant say I have used Skype in the toilet, I have used it when I am far away from Family and want to see and talk with them. It is very difficult to use a computer for Skyping when you are in the middle of nowhere and need to rely on 3G or HSDPA.

I'm using HTC wildfire and have bought a new SE Xperia Ray. Xperia Ray is cool and amazing. It's beautiful, slim, stylish and elegant. It's the best phone I ever had. I just love it! Well done, Sony Ericsson!

Wonder how often people will use their phone for video chat;; especially on a small screen? Everyone has got a computer at home or work.
Guess you do not use your cell phone for Skype video chat in the toilet!?
can any 1 suggest me what to choose....whether xperia mini pro or xperia ray? am very confused between these two:(
