Want to buy Xperia ray - some questions
Hi everyone, I'd be happy if you can help me decide whether the ray is the phone for me.
This will be my first smartphone, and I very much like a small phone yet powerful with a good display, which is why I'm considering the ray.
1. Small RAM - will this be an issue? I'm not a "heavy" user, but I would definitely like to install some apps, use GPS and maps, maybe take a few photos here and there, play games.
2. Upgrade to Android 4 - do you think the ray will run it smoothly? I read in some reviews the CPU is a bit on the weak side (compared to other monsters on the market). What is the general consensus on this issue - will it run ICS4?
3. Display in sunlight - how good is it? I'm out in the open a considerable amount of time, so this is rather important for me. Can the phone be used in direct sunlight without much problems?
4. Battery life - is the hype justified? Can I really expect to get a full day's worth of juice from this phone under "normal" use (few calls, some texting, a bit of surfing and playing for a couple of hours)? Also, can I buy extra batteries and change them easily when needed?
That's it for now, thanks in advance!
