i like the slimness but hope it gets a good speaker volume.... nothing is said about it anywhere ...
i got a SE t700 which is 10 mm thick....and it got poor volume output
Yea! We are Just Guessing and waiting for this Handset however its expected as populer as Samsung Galaxy S 2...
ell the price of 350 pounds come from here...
Hope the retail price will be cheaper after a few weeks.
But SE people are stuck in the past 80s when Sony was the best brand in the world, and could ask for any price they want.
Unfortunately it is not true anymore.
Rachana, 26 Jul 2011Screen display can't match with super AMOLED or retina display. Why sony can't improve it?it may not be bright as s amoled+ or retina display but the bravia engine provides very beautiful images with a nice contrast, moreover the amoled screen has a very shot lifespan and its very much prone to screen burn in,see in wikipedia
after my N70 died, I bought a $30 nokia, because there's no phone which really caught my attention. I do like nokia's ovimap, but symbian is frustratingly slow. My friends bought large >4" HTC, Samsung phones. I don't know, to me, I find it annoying to put a big phone in your jeans pocket. the other Xperia mini seems to have lousy plastic build. So yeah, I'm waiting for this Xperia ray. What I like about it ? looks like nice quality construction , good camera, hotspot support, 299dpi screen, good resolution in a small package. What I dislike? No HDMI support !
I am a SE fan but I am really frustrated with them why cant they make a affordable smartphone with specs of xperia mini and bigger screen 3.5 inch at least
I don't know why everybody is saying this handset is too expensive. No one knows the price yet. I remember the Xperia X8 being advertised as £220 on pre-order. It actually came out at £130. I doubt the Ray will be £350, more like £250-275.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2011Exactly, and you can put a 4.3 inch screen into a xperia mini's size phone.*you can't
first i think i made it clear why the ray is almost 200$ more than the mini :)
and for the galaxy s2 volume ya u r absolutely right, and here comes the designers role ;)
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2011if u calculated the volume of the xperia ray u will find: 111 x 53 x 9.4 = 55,300 mm cube an... moreThe gigantic Samsung S II is 123,5x66,1x8,5=69,38 cm3, same volume as Xperia mini 69,05 cm3. But it is hard to say they are the same size...And i like phone a bit thick, they are easier to hold.
LooL, 26 Jul 2011Technically you are right but the new mini is so cute (and i am a guy), when the Ray looks not... moreHmm....its all up to the individual i gues...I find the mini(especially the white one) very ugly...I find Ray much more subtle n beautiful...At the end of the day its upto the individual...People have different tastes
[deleted post]i have'nt heard of a death grip issue w/ SE phones b4.

if u calculated the volume of the xperia ray u will find:
111 x 53 x 9.4 = 55,300 mm cube
and if u calculated the volume of the xperia mini u will find:
83 x 52 x 16 = 69,056 mm cube
conclusion xperia ray is smaller than the mini with a larger high resolution screen n better camera n longer life battery :)
