Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray Review

 

Sony Ericsson has created a niche for itself in the smartphone arena with their recent Android smartphones. The company recently launched their latest entrant in the popular Xperia range, called the S

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is priced at Rs. 20,000. With that price, it competes with the likes of the Google Nexus S and the LG Optimus Black and the HTC Desire S. The eight megapixel camera is brilliant, but the smaller 3.3-inch screen size may not...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA ray Review

 

The XPERIA ray is easily the smallest smartphone I've ever had the opportunity to lay hands on, and while it may seem at first to be tiny in stature, it packs an oddly enticing set of punches. Head back to our XPERIA ray hands-on and unboxing post to...

Should Sony Ericsson find a way to hook up with AT&T to get this device’s price down to something like $150 USD, they’ll have a winner on their hands. A tiny device with a fantastically sharp display and a camera that takes excellent video and photos....

Big is in with Android phones but the Xperia ray is eager to prove that petite smartphones have a charm of their own. All the horsepower of the Arc in a body that's a centimeter shorter both ways - think a premium saloon turned into a roadster. The...

Three new Sony Ericsson handsets, among which was the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray, were announced pretty hush-hush at CommunicAsia 2011 just a few weeks ago. Looking at the preview unit in our hands, we feel the handset actually deserved more attention to...

Sony Ericsson Xperia ray

 

Sony Ericsson's Xperia family of Android phones has been rapidly expanding, including its traditionally large form factor (like the Arc), adorably miniature ones, such as the Mini, and even sliders, like the Pro. Another addition is the Xperia Ray – a...

Sharp, pocketable form factor ; Smart Facebook integration ; Smooth, responsive software

720p video capture washed-out ; Picky with headphones with in-line mics ; Small-ish display

I have very few complaints about the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray. On the whole, it's a slim, simple, and smooth Android phone with smart customizations. I really wish Sony Ericsson would get around to fixing that in-line mic issue, since it's been...

Sony Ericsson Xperia ray Review

 

One of the tiniest Android smartphones I've ever had the pleasure of working with has been in my pocket for the past few days, and that is the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray. This device is extremely small, sleek, and lightweight but that isn't all it...

To wrap things up I’m going to have to finish by saying I love this phone, but I sort of hate it too. The hardware, camera, display, and even the amazingly loud and clear speakers all are excellent but overall it’s just too small for me. The display...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray Smartphone Review

 

Big on specs, small on size, the Xperia Ray is an awesome mini smartphone.

Love the small form factor, excellent camera and good battery life

Timescape UI is not that great

On the top of the device, you have a power button on the center as well as 3.5mm audio jack. The right side has volume keys while the left has a USB connector, That’s pretty much about all the buttons you will see on the Xperia Ray. On the back, you...
