The Xperia Ray is the latest innovation from Sony Ericsson, combining world class camera, touchscreen, audio and software technologys into a smart aluminum cased package. The device despite being only 9.4mm deep and weighing only 100g redefines the Xperia lineup, packing more tech into a chassis smaller than the Xperia Arc.

Under the Hood

There is a 1GHz Snapdragon processor powering this little beauty, which coupled with the latest Android 2.3.4 is a pleasure to use. HSUPA/HSDPA 3.5g internet connectivety means that download speeds are blazingly fast along with fast uploads to things such as social networking sites using the new Facebook In Xperia 2.0 software. 1gb of internal memory is hidden within this device with 300mb available to the user, along with an external memory card slot capable of reading 32gb via micro SD. Many retail packages will contain a 4gb card in the box. Colour varients of the device include gold, black, pink, white and blue. The Xperia ray has a the usual connectivety; bluetooth. WiFi B/G/N, media server, 3.5g and a micro USB port.


The first thing you notice when you turn the handset on is the clarity of the 3.3 inch screen, which has the same pixel resolution (480x854) as its larger 4.2 inch sibling. This really helps in the reproduction of text and the quality of the devices display, where colours just seem to 'bounce' off the screen to the end user. A lot of people have compared the screen and say that it is on par with the iPhone 4/4s Retina Display.


The Xperia Ray pack an 8.1 megapixel camera which utilises the ExmorR sensor to help with its photography skills. Camera UI is kept minimalistic with favourite functions kept to the left of the viewfinder and previews of the last 5 photos to the right. Shots came up clear and crisp with little noise in the daylight, where the ExmorR sensor aids the night photography which many other cameras on smartphones fail to impress with. The camera sometimes oversaturates blue colours and night photos can appear to be quite soft but again is much better compared to the Samsung Galaxy S II or Iphone 4.

Video Camera

Video recording is captured in 720p at 30 frames per second, which offers good sound quality and video quality with little noise. This follows a similar UI layout to the camera so usabiltiy is consistant, the only thing to note is that you sometimes pick up ghost frames.


So the Xperia is a little phone in a world of Dualcore behomoths and does well to keep up. The phone appeals to many people considering the size and what features it packs and with Android Ice Cream Sandwich already confirmed for it this help cement a future for another Sony Ericsson Device.

Only just upgraded to a Desire S & then this beauty came out. Amazingly small package considering what it can do & with a nice 3.2" screen too. Obviously not as big as a Desire/iPhone but then you know it when you have one of those in your pocket, this you hardly notice. Installed with Android 3.2, which is so polished, & you will easily be able to update to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) in a few months with Sony Ericsson's Update Service.

The feel of the phone is very high quality with it's aluminium frame & mineral glass & the screen is very responsive.

As a side note, no more having to remember to backup contacts anymore when using Android/Google sync. Just pop your sim in your new Android phone, sign into your Google account & within seconds your contacts, favourite contacts & contacts thumbnails, are all back on your phone. & believe me this is a necessity when you have swapped Android phones about 6 times in as many weeks.

Good price too. Much more expensive at Carphone Warehouse. Well done Play!
