Mi xperia ray is everything i hoped for and more, it's even bether than the latest models from sony when i compare all the features.
According to article on Mashable, Sony says -
“After thorough evaluation, we have concluded [these models] will not be upgraded beyond Ice Cream Sandwich,” said Sony Mobile in a blog post, promising to keep supporting these products with firmware upgrades.
And we all know about the quality about Sony's upgrades. They have botched up ICS update as everyone knows and have not even addressed very basic bugs till date. Nor have they given any timeline for addressing the same. Now they have denied Jellybeans. Perfect. I don't think my next phone will be a Sony.
mouzrr, 19 Oct 2012Is it really scratching easily? :(Every screen is scratchable - more or less...Whole phone is actualy one big screen...so use screen protectors. You dont see it if it is from edge to edge - even reduces glare, and decrese smudges and it is easy to clean than whithout protector.
Even if you are carefoul there would be usage scratches, from fingernail, fingers, pocket, cleaning,...
I dont understand you people - put there screen protector (you get 5 for 1$) and change if damaged. One can get up to 1 year or more.
Ofcourse that screen is scratchabe - what do you expect!? Seriously!? Next thing you will be supprised to get wet in the shower...!?!?

Choose screenprotector something from edge to edge (left-right), maybe 1-2mm space...and thet also use silicon case. Now your screen protector would not lift up, and if you drop phone, battery would stay in, and grip is better, also it protect phone if you drop it.
Whithout those two, my phone is like nude. Sreen protector is must have - because it reduces glare, smudges, and it is easy to wipe. Also, there is no scratches even on screenprotector!
Whithout silicon case, if dropped battery pops out, grip is somewhat reduces so phone could easy slip out of hand...
And since phone is slim people ask me why didnt I get silicon case - and when closer look, oh - you did get silicon case! :)

For stability and speed - stay on gingerbread! Read some comparisons ICS vs Gingerbread - in my opinion there is no need for ICS on Ray, because on Ray it is not how it should be! But gingerbread is everithing you need and more!

It is the softest display since the time of using plastic. Don't even think of comparing it to a gorilla glass. After one year of use, the front is full of scratches from the bottom to the top.
On a similar used lg 2x or Samsung galaxy s2 you can see almost nothing.
But .. There is nothing compareable in this size and weight.
Hiii all,i am using xperia ray for 10 months with 4 gb memory card and 2.3 android version...now i am interested to change my configuration to 16 or 32 Gb and want to upgrade to 4.0(ice cream sandwich) version can i go a head...is there any one to suggest me for the precautions to be taken before upgrading?????

M@ni, 18 Oct 2012Really its an excellent one which i m experiencing it for the past 3 to 4 months. All works fi... moreray a very good package overall. screen only will be an issue for big handed people. otherwise this is damn good phone.when compared to other phones in the same range like HTC,Samsung n Nokia, xperia ray is better than those. xperia go has very poor pixel density which affects user experience .ray is much better than go n neo l. only if screen is issue then go for those .
vry nice model.mobile is getting heat very soon once we started browsing.
to stop the vibration when dialing a number you go to settings - sound (scroll all the way down)- Haptic feedback. This should turn that off.
ramyHR, 18 Oct 2012Settings- Sounds- Vibrate on touch (uncheck it).Thanks for your comments. But below said option is not available under sound settings. I need to stop vibration while dialing numbers to make calls.
