the xperia ray has more screen quality than neo and i like it!
i think ray is cooler than neo 
the ray is just so good looking though,
Ray dose not has auto flash and it is small has a good look,high resolution.neo has hdmi port but ray does not have.
ray has exmor engine it gives better cam for video shooting. so ray is better than neo.
ray....slim...shady!!!!!!!!!!.....looks cool
blackberry gemini is the best , EVER !!!!!!!!!!
pls suggest me.. neo or ray or arc??? actually i'm interested in taking photos..
neo rocks the mobile market :)
I like xperia neo becoz it's screen is large
xperia neo has no xloud music but ray does, but neo has a better image quality than ray 
я (рей) хочу!!! (нео) мне не очень понравился потому что он толстоват:D и кнопок слишком много
Same dilemma guys, but I've chosen Neo over Ray, and I have no regrets.  It's thin, light and the display is awesome. Even my friends who have the Iphone 4 wants one. The only problem that you will have with Neo is, it's body is like a smudge magnet. 
so,neo is better than ray right?
Neo's too thick,,,and fat too :-p
Except For size.....NEo is the BEST !!!!!
