The x-ray is a very good handset.well build handset,no metal finish though.good camera at par with x-neo.audio quality is excellent.call quality is good.screen is really crisp with good contrast n colour reproduction,but has poor viewing angles.cant comment on the sunlight legibility as i havent tested that as yet.no lag in the software part,comes with android 2.3.3.watching video on the 3.3 inch display is a pleasure but lack of codec support is a big let down.the bravia engine makes videos n photos come to life on the abit small screen,but again bravia engines consumes twice as much battery,so regular night charging is recomended.the hd video is not so good,has solid framerates but detailing n contrast lacks.videos look great on the mobile but when you transfer them to pc it is not that good.the phone has gaming potential but the 3.3inch is a no go.all said,the biggest problem that i felt is the hefty price tag of 360-400 euros which doesnt do justice to this great pocket friendly device
is it better than samsung galaxy s2 to be ranked ((in the voting results)) higher than sgs2?????!!!!!!!!
is it have better memory??
so why Sony Ericsson Xperia ray 8.847
Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II 8.803
I'm using the white colour Ray. Sony camera is amazing, can take clear picture in very low light surrounding - even without a turning on the flash. You can turn on oroff the flash light as you wish. I downloaded the flash light, so I can use it anytime I want to.
The only issue is with the small fonts. i will download tthe software wjich can help to enlarge the fonts.
Very nice size for pocketing & handling.
Dunhaf, 01 Sep 2011It's a shame that SE is still launching single core processor, whereby most of the manufacture... moreDual core is useless. The software that'd make proper use of a dual core processor isn't around yet. I suppose criticising the lack of dual core is the only way bashers envious of SE's phones have of saying something negative.
just got mine from hk. excellent unit. perform really good. $430 us dollar
like se phones, but many says that them are much worse than nokias. i have nokia n8 right now:P
Dunhaf, 01 Sep 2011It's a shame that SE is still launching single core processor, whereby most of the manufacture... morewho cares? have experienced any SE Xperia phone? it's on par with the dual cores. So go ahead and praise your dual core crap phones which heats up when used for a long time
It's a shame that SE is still launching single core processor, whereby most of the manufacturer are already into dual core.
