Thats just haters trash talk - for those people there is nothing even close to perfect, there are always flaws ang they are never content.
I forgot to mention speaker - it is loud enough. Even people tell me to lower down ringtone...but it is not soround stereo sistem - it is mid range quality phone speaker. Good for speakerphone conversations, ringtones, internet radio (excellent!!!), and other basic stuff. For better quality music listening - connect BT speakers, or just plug in soround speakers (from computer) in jack (headphone plug in)...Then it is another dimension!
Also, ear speaker is low-mid range...sometimes i get metalic sound...but it is maybe my carrier quality... Dont know... It is generaly ok, loud and clear enough. But, i use everyday SonyEricsson BT VH-410 earpeace - it have superb sound quality...and even other person tells me it hears me better when on BT...I used it on previous phone and now also! It is just significant improvement in every phone! Also, when listening music use poweramp - it have equilizers with options like external speaker bass improvements - and realy improves quality and loudnes...even on headphones - i use it to listen heart and lung sounds (medical program).
In sunlight display is readable with 30% screen light!!! Thats excellent!
Navigon 4.1.3 works also great, proHDR gives best HDR pictures,...just get right apps and your phone (any phone) gets better.
Ray is small, fits in palm just right (htc sensation, galaxy s3 are large). Sometimes biger screen is better, but not for everyday use...just my opinion!
Sam, 18 Sep 2012It's not correct, i had this phone for about two months i bought it mainly because i needed a ... morethis phone has flashlight . you just needed to download an app from the android market . the person who bought it won , you lost .
Also, apps can be moved to micro sd, so it would be great if there is more space than 300mb - but when exporting to sd it is fine!
I have 3 games: one 1,3 gb second 1,7 gb and third 900mb - on interal they use each 15-20mb, and when tranfered on sd - each 5-6mb on internal...skype also on sd etc.
Once more, this phone is superb maschine on gingerbread!
Ray have enough RAM and enough ROM. Phone is fast, responsive and there is no lag at all! Led is light, not flash - but, thats same thing...it is not xenon. So, if i need light i turn it on in camera. And I consider it better, because autofocus and everithing is measured with light so pics are better... And if you want flash use app vignette - so, Ray have flash and light - you choose. ICS works bad on RAY, lags, bugs, not optimized etc...in one word - DO NOT GO FOR ICS! Gingerbread actualy works excellent.
So, dont speak trash about phone if dont know, or do not want to know, or sell phone just because do not have flash (!?) - and it does have flash when using vignette app. Also, do not talk it have low ram, procesor etc...because it is enough to skype, HD games (asphalt 7, Modern combat 3, Modern warfare, Temple run...), wifi tether, BT, HD video with 10mbps (lgcamera), 8MP photo - great for this small, cheap phone...and when low light also ok pics...but for better results go for real digital cam...this is phone!
I bought it and consider it better then iphone 4s and HTC sensation. Couldnt be happier! Oh, yes: battery duration is superb!!! ;) Go for this phone - just not in ICS!
eyeye, 17 Sep 2012looking the specification it state that ray have led flash... how?It's not correct, i had this phone for about two months i bought it mainly because i needed a budget phone with flash light my earlier phone didn't had flash light,but i was really disappointed to know that it only had photo light and not LED flash as mentioned in the specifications here,that's why i sold it off.
Good overall phone especially considering all the new Sony xperia phones under 110g (same class) dont hav 8mp camera. The battey issue can easily be rectified with "Cache cleaner" or "memory cleaner" from android shop.
i buy sony Ericesson xperia ray phone but there no option for vedio call why? its only option vedio call if i use skype but local vedio call no option why?
did someone install the latest update , 4.1.B.0.587 ?
what does the new update bring? thanks in advance.
The internal memory is too short, also ram is not enough. Couples of applications such adobe reader , document viewer , ... have to be intalled on internal memory. At first it works very good, but after installing some applications it became so slow, and there is any feature to kill application, instead of going to setting which take 23 mg of ram that slow down more the phone. some times i have to turn it off and exit the battery to reset comletly the ram and clean applications cache.
i really disaponted to buy it.
hey guys i wanted to get a sony erricson and cant decide over the arc s or thd xperia ray. please reply as i need to buy quickly!!!!!!!
Plz dont buy it unless u dont have exess money... poor purformance, poor battery life, not so good quality poto pics. too costly as per the specifications and perormance. worth up to Rs10000/= only
