    Review:

    When you first put the Xperia ray into your hand, you can not help but think how slight and plastic this phone is. Only upon closer inspection and research do you see that this has some respectable stats. It doesn't have a dual core processor and it only has a VGA front facing camera with no HDMI output. However, if you look at the phones stats you will see their is one other phone that is comparable with similar specs. The iPhone!

    The Xperia Ray runs 2.3.4 android, and with one of the more popular Android skins to be used, The phone is quick to respond and shows no sign of lag when quickly popping through the menus. However, would you still want stock android?

    For whilst HTC and Samsung are out trying to follow the 'bigger is better' philosophy with 4.3 and 4.7 inch screens. Apple have maintained the 3.5 inch screen factor with the retina display. Yet all these 4.3 and 4.7 inch phones are still compared to its somewhat smaller competition.

    Sony, have generated a great alternative to current trend of phones being manufactured. With ICS also scheduled for an April release, this phone has a lot to offer, in a great form factor.

    I've been using this phone for 2 months and its very satisfying. It is obviously small and might be too small for what most people are looking for these days. But, I love how easily it slips into a pocket and fits in my hand. Its easy to operate with one hand and type with one hand (stock keyboard has gesture suppoort...like swype).

    The battery is great, the screen is colorful and sharp, the phone looks very elegant, the call qualify has been super and the phone is general fast and responsive.

    My only gripes would be that it can slow down under multitasking (which sometimes causes the camera to launch a little slowly), you can't use the "light" on the back as a flash (common with sony phones) you have to turn the light on and shoot a photo then turn it back off manually, and I've had some slowdown on high end games (Riptide GP and Real Racing 2). These games worked out but would stutter from time to time...they ran much better on my Motorola Atrix.

    Overall, I'm VERY happy with this device. Very good all around phone that I would recommend to anyone that wants a small, elegant, android device.
