Daryl, 13 Sep 2011What 8-hour charging are you saying??? are you nuts? you're gonna destroy the phone! when the ... moreCharging the phone for 8 hours or more wont make any damage to the phone, the question is, whether the battery needs this over nite initial charging or not. If you're using an original battery pack, no need to worry if u leave ur phone connect to power source. When the battery is fully charged, it will stop charging and start to discharge. After a certain time, it starts to charge again. The battery wont be get over charged as u might find this happened with a non original battery.

Guys wat abt the internal memory its got only 300mb while other equivalent samsung mobile has abt 1gb internal memory... wat should i do ???
Batterys in general nowadays do not require full charge/drain, rinse & repeat, however most manufacturers advise full charge and drain & repeat on first few cycles. I myself didnt need 8hrs charge from out the box, it required about 2 hrs maximum. Battery performance has been exceptional so far in past 5 days, only requiring a charge twice (includes 1st initial charge) and still have 68% battery remaining, this is light usage however and i deactivated bluetooth, auto data downloads and the wifi useage is 1 hr a day.
I bought mine from www.mobiles.co.uk, part of Carphone Warehouse Group, arrived next day in black with screen protector, extra earplugs and a 4 gig micro sd card. I got the phone for free on a 24 month Orange contract worth a mere £12.85 a month after the 9 month free redemption (£20.50 a month pre redemption). Very very happy with this model and glad i bought it :)

Haha,i always do a first time charge on my new mobile battery for 8hrs,its a personal practice.As for subsequent charge,once it is 100% i will disconnect it.The battery still lasts me or a good 2 1/2days,24hrs connecting to my bluetooth headset.I asked my friend from singapore to get it.He was skeptical in me getting the phone saying why i'm going backwards for the screen size ,it should be small to big instead from big to small.
how come some models have the livesound hifi headset included and others do not???? i want to buy it on contract but dont know what i will be getting

what is gsmarena doing about rating of the phones?
First of,8.7 to 7.7 in one day.
And then 7.7 to 8.7 in one day.
Is the rating done really by voting or any mistake in rating the xperia ray?

So in Sweden (http://www.swedroid.se/42624/test-av-sony-ericsson-xperia-ray) they get a typical headset, but in UK (http://blog.clove.co.uk/2011/09/09/sony-ericsson-xperia-ray-st18i-unboxing-demonstration) they get a cool in ear live sound hi-fi headset.
I also found Mat Smith (http://recombu.com/news/sony-ericsson-xperia-ray-whats-in-the-box_M15140-2.html#photo) complaining about the absence of a screen protector, but again the guy in UK takes one right outta the box!!!
IS IT GONNA BE REGION-BASED?
What? I can't believe they'd purposefully vote this down! Well, I'm voting it all to 10 every 2 hours!
