There's no Xperia Ray forum on Modaco, despite there being activity on XDA and on the Sony website.
Niglas (another ex-blade user, like myself) pointed out that the Ray is a lot like the Xperia Neo in terms of its internals (aside from the Neo's HDMI socket) so speculated that Ray owners might post here.
So here I am, making a Ray outpost.
I was lucky enough to win it in a Land of Droid Competition a while back, and it's a really lovely device.
I've rooted mine and upgraded to the Sony official Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0.3) which is a joy to use.
Minor gripes would include:
- the slightly poorer handling of Bluetooth in ICS than in Gingerbread (it's harder to initially set up pairing with a new device on ICS while on GB it was very smooth) - once paired it seems pretty robust though
- that you have to manually turn the camera light on and off when you use the camera (it's not set up in the rom to flash automatically, perhaps to reduce shutter lag - I don't know)
- the incredibly poor handling of auto-screen dimming in high and low ambient light settings
Any other Ray-ers out there?
