in Hands On, Videos, Xperia ray

Xperia rayA number of previews of the upcoming 3.3-inch Sony Ericsson Xperia ray hit the web over the last few days. We’ve rounded then up for you in one place below along with a number of hands-on videos of the handset.

Initial impressions appear to be quite positive at this early stage , with the handset praised for its slim design, uncompromised features, high-resolution display (ppi of 297) and 8.1MP Exmor R camera sensor. GSM Arena and PhoneArena also have some video recording samples to check out too. All of the sites looked like they were playing with a prototype, so we could see even more improvements before its release in the next few months.

Xperia ray preview roundup

GSM Arena:It’s small, as in a sexy little sports car, rather than small to keep the costs down. The Xperia ray is hot and it knows it. That puts a lot of pressure on it to do well in the upcoming review. But as far as we’re concerned, the Xperia ray is off to a roaring start.”


PhoneArena:It is easy to say that the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray is a less-capable version of the Xperia arc, but what you actually get is a more compact version without sacrificing much but an HDMI port and a flash. Actually, the fact that the light emitting diode on the back can only be used as a light instead of a flash. Props for the best-in-class resolution on the 3.3” screen, it really made a difference while reading.”


Pocket-Lint:That new screen technology is clearly visible with a vibrant 3.3-inch display that is not only crisp, but has an incredible viewing angle (as our pictures show). The “reality display” 854×480 pixel resolution definitely helps add to the phone’s media and browsing experience.”

TechRadar:Overall, we’re really impressed with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray – given we expect it to come in at around £20-£25 per month on contract, the compact dimensions, decent camera and high-res screen could see this become another winning phone for the Japanese-Swedish alliance.”
