Slow and Heat - Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray (Bad Smartphone)

Sony Ericsson X-peria Ray is quite a disappointing smartphone to have. I got the phone before because it looks very handy, slim, and with 8 Megapixel camera. However not long after getting used to it the phone is just not good enough for the following reasons.

1. It gets heated up very quick when it is constantly in used just within 1 or 2 minutes. As a result the phone will slow down and often caused the applications in use to crash. I believe this is due to the slim design which giving too little room for the processor to breathe.

2. Secondly after installing quite a few applications on the phone, most of them are now frequently crash especially the Camera 360 which I use so frequently. Now I have to turn back to the old original camera application of the phone.




3. The music sound of the phone is not as good as Sony phone used to have. It's just ordinary. And the worse part is the ring tone sound is soft and cannot be adjusted to the loudest. It's just very soft.

4. The sleek and slim design turnout to be one of the phone disadvantages. Instead of being handy, the phone can easily slip out of your hands and fall off to the ground. Mine drop on the ground quite a few times already, fortunately it's still OK.

5. The data signal is quite weak. Using my wife's HTC Desire HD easily getting the HSDPA signal where as the X-Peria Ray only getting 3G or Edge.

Therefore Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is not a good phone other than it's 8 megapixel camera. Everything else are just not worth the money, and if I have some more money this phone will be long gone for auction. I would consider it as one of the worse smartphone ever.
