Xperia Ray - Just Right, 15 Oct 2011
xperia ray - just the right size just the right weight, i had an xperia mini before this and found it too small and other mobiles iv found to be just too big. to me this is just right.
The 8mp camera with face detection takes great pictures and video clips. The camera has a good zoom but there is no zoom in video mode. The camera does not have a flash the led on the back is used as a light in both picture taking and video shooting. The camera works really well in low light conditions and only in really dark situations will you need to put the light on to take a picture or video. (makes for a handy torch)
Battery life is good, id say over average but not amazing and charging back up is fairly quick.
The only thing missing for me is sms inbox, all sms messages are in conversation view (threaded) i miss not having the good old inbox view although im getting used to the chatroom style messaging.
im no expert on touch screens, the xperia rays works a treat responsive without been too sensitive. A Good all round mobile i dont think anyone would be disappointed with.
UPDATE, A recent software update has now enabled 16x zooming while videoing, also sweep panorama mode for extra wide picture taking. It just gets better and better :-)
