I got mine this morning, took the white version (black and white were the only choices in Belgium) for 349 euros.
The screen is fantastic. The sound is very loud and crisp. Photos are 'good'. The keyboard is small but when you are (quickly) used to it, it types very accurate. The only problem I have is with the abc/numbers key. It's very small.
Internet is also fast for 7 mbps.

The Arc has the same camera as the xperia neo,pro and the ray, so yes I believe the Ray has a better camera than the iphone4.

Guys please help me out to make a choice between Xperia Ray and Samsung Galaxy S ... is it really difficult to type on the 3.3" screen, many reviews/previews say its the aspect ratio that makes it difficult to type even in Landscape QWERTY mode + the keypad is not accurate!!! Also I heard that there's no smart dialing ??
So is it worth..or should I go with the tried and tested one: Galaxy S ??

The phones w... moreI wasn't aware of all those technical details, but I agree when you say the Ray's camera isn't as good the phones you mentioned. To be honest, I think my old SE C902's 5MP is better than the Ray's 8MP. And the camera's options on the Ray are disappointing, though this can be circumvented by apps.

They will all suffer image quality issues. The phones with the best sensors are Nokia N8 and iphone 4 both with sensor pixel cells of 1.75 microns, compared to Xperias 1.4 microns. To many megapixels decreases cell size if squashed onto a small sensor and thus reduces photons hitting each cell. The iphone4 and Xperia both have back-illuminated sensors (sony call this ExmorR) Id rather use a 5MP 1.75 than an 8MP 1.4. Thats the science anyway. First hand the iphone 4 is better than the Ray (which has same sensor as Arc) in general everyday and night shots so backs up the theory a bit too. I do have the Xperia Ray and really like it, but didnt buy it for its camera. Compared to dedicated cameras all phones are quite bad in quality if being picky. Not sure on Samsung cameras.
pif79, 17 Sep 2011Thank you very much. Do you know, can I see this one somewhere in Sofia in person? To decide... moreYes, you can go check at BROS Mobile central office, I already ask them, so you can go there and try it. It`s in Sofia, so you just go Google them. ;)

Prime, 20 Sep 2011Where is it?
There's only a preview.
Agreed that gsmarena should've already done the review ... morePrime, its here;
ppl who have got this phone - is ray's 8mp cam as good as arc's? r the photos n videos taken from ray as good as the samsung n nokia high end phones? does exmor really make a difference or is it just a marketing gimmick?
finally, is it available in india n for how much? i feel this is a better choice than active, though am a little confused btw them... :)
