SONY ERICSSON XPERIA RAY / ST18i (BLACK) : UNLOCKED INTERNATIONAL GSM ANDRIOD PHONE
where to begin, where to begin
so i bought this phone and it came in a brown box 3 days after ordering. the box contained the retail box with the phone in it. i was so excited cause i was shaking the box before opening, thinking "hmmm whats in it ^^". ok, so in the box is the standard things, the phone in a plastic wrap on top. under you get standard headphones, usb cable and charging thing. the charging thing is ugly. just saying. its this white plug with the black thing with 2 prongs. yea its stupid. it also came with the fcc statment sar information booklet, the getting started guide, and something else i cant remember. it also came in another language. now heres the first disappointment with my order. now on youtube and on this amazon page, you read the the package comes with a 1500 mAh battery. i repeat, a 1500 mAh power battery. i got a 1460 mAh power. of course, 40 mAh difference really isnt much, but i think if a seller is going to sell you or another consumer something, they should sell exactly what you said. but i dont think the battery is that bad
it did come with a 4gb memory card, but i swapped it with a sandisk 8gb micro sd card. i placed in my sim card (tmobile prepaid in nyc usa) and there were no problems. phone took that signal without a problem. it asked to transfer contacts, choose language, etc. it also also you to disable data usage on the spot, which was nice. after the phone boots up, it lags a little, but then disappears. i guess it was to load all the stuff it needed to do at first. afterwards, omg the phone doesnt noe how to lag.
so the final overview, after many testings
battery life is decent
screen is beautiful. it really is.
the camera is jaw dropping
the call quality is nice.
the speakers with xloud really pack a punch
it feels nice in your hands, certainly a 260 dollar phone.
i can show it off to people. cant do that with an iphone ;) its not like you can go to somebody and say, i got a new iphone, it can do this and this and that. i mean, everybody knows what an iphone is capable of. so boring
it has swype, which is basically you type without having to lift your finger off the keyboard.
easy to put music in and out.
no video lag
front facing camera
i cant think of anything else here, but the phone is amazing
the touch screen starts to annoy me if you get near the edges of the screen. everywhere else it response like you want it to. the edges, you should be a little more accurate. but thats okie dokie, since i ive already gotten use to it.
ugly charger. seriously, tall and fat
no back light on the soft keys.
the screen is not really scratch resistent. i place it in my pocket, no keys no coins no nothing. the fabric is really soft to touch, but when i take it out, minor minor scratches. yes they are minor, u cant see them when the screen is on, but still.... it hurts not just the phone, but my heart =(
thats basically it really, the phone is amazing, im in love with it and im never letting it go. in fact, im going to it right now. baii
