Gives the same disappointing low crap audio quality in video-recordings as Neo does. Stay away if video-recording is important.
Arc is much much better for some weird reason. Arc, Neo and Ray are NOT the same hardware.

AnonD-21774, 14 Sep 2011Thank u for ur kind reply Jon.
Well this batt thing seems to be a hot discussion. This is wha... moreInteresting article about li-ion based battery..., the only thing I would not agree with is about keeping the battery temperature less than 35 celcius degree. If u living in a tropical country like I am, without doing anything to the phone, it gets 31 degree heat already. Working with it for 10 mnt, it raised the temperature up to 34. Playing games or browsing the net intensively could increased the temperature up to 41 degree. Why should I hv to be worry with 35 degree?
A phone (a good one) has been design to keep survive in extreme temperature - from sub zero up to 50 degree temperature and so with the battery. The good batteries also must be provided with a chip that protect them from electric overloads or overvoltage, that's why keeping the battery on charging for hours won't be damaging it.
This one shows how the phones (the good ones) and the hardwares actually were designed to be survive in extreme situation http://gadgetstress.com/2010/08/the-stress-test-of-a-nokia-6500-slide/
In Bulgaria Ray cost around 300 euro, but still there is too many offers, so the price will drop a little I guess.

Well this batt thing seems to be a hot discussion. This is what I'd suggest if u wanna learn more abt Lith-ion Batts: http://www.apple.com/batteries/
Many have that kind of practice Jon. I'm just wondering if the same goes with the new Li-ion batteries. Cuz this initial charge was critical for Nickel-cad batts.
And best choice man. I hate bulky phones. The smaller, the better.

Can i make video call using the front cam. Because in some site i have read that it is only for video chatting using social network.
this device DOES NOT have 512 mb of ram memory, it has only 335... i discovered it with an app
This is the first SE-phone that I really like, but I have read a review that complain about bad screen-sensitivity and the hardware-button feels a little loose and having a bit too sharp top edge, and the screen is maybe a little too small if you want to write long sms and e-mails comfortably.

Surprised that the voting dorpped so much in one day, and suddenly went back up so fast! ... is this a joke?
Since I'm in Japan now, I had a chance to visit a phone service provider (close to my hotel). This provider is "AU". I went in & asked for SE Ray, the sales girl told me that they only carry the Ace, if I want the Xperia Ray, Docomo is the carrier. I notice that there is a Black, a Pink and a White on display. I picked up the Black & the white one & check them out, what I notice was that the White one is actually Pearl White, and the Black colour one has got soft feel plastic back cover compare to the Pearl White Arc. I think that the White one is very nice looking.
I asked the sales girl about the price, ans to my surprise, the price of the phone cost Yen 68,500; which is approx. Euro 650. That's very expensive - mobile phones are expensive in Japan nowadays because of the expensive Yen. Those SE Arc selling in Japan are all "Made In Japan" though.
