Sony Ericsson has launched some successful phones this year and the trend has been continued with the Xperia Ray. It lands itself somewhere in the middle of Sony Ericsson’s Xperia range, smaller than the previous Xperia Arc but bigger than the Xperia Mini and with an emphasis on style and design.
Don’t be fooled by the Xperia Ray aiming itself squarely at the role of mid-range Android smartphone. It feels reassuringly solid, retains the screen resolution of larger Xperia phones and comes with an 8.1-megapixel camera.
Despite all the praise there has to be some shortcomings; chiefly there’s no physical camera button, meaning you have to use the touchscreen to focus, which can be annoying.
So what do we think of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray? Does size really matter? And how does it compete with other mid-to-upper range phones out there? Check out our video review below and you can read the full review here.
