Compared – Nokia N9 Vs Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray [Detailed Review]

Not all Sony Ericsson phones give competition to Nokia but Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray has changed the direction of wind and is fully prepared to give competition to Nokia’s latest and burning phone – Nokia N9. Both the phones are awesome and believe me both even looks great! Let us see whether the shine of Nokia N9 will be able to beat the operating system of Xperia Ray?

Nokia N9 Vs Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray

Camera and Photography

The resolution of the cameras of both the phone is same but the thing which matters – quality is with Nokia’s N9 because the lens of Nokia’s N9 is of Carl Zeiss. Nokia’s N9 has also got another card and that is its dual LED flash while Xperia Ray has only single LED flash. So the with the help of flash and quality Nokia clean sweeps the camera category!

Winner – Nokia N9

Operating System

Operating system is the deciding factor for any buyer. Nokia’s N9 has got the operating system which is recently released in February this year but on the other hand Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Ray has got trusted and popular Android v2.3. I always trust to go with the trusted one and so I think Xperia Ray is far better than Nokia N9 in the operating system category.

Winner – Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray

Processor and Performance

Processor is the factor which many people forget to consider while buying a phone and that’s what makes them regret the most. The processors of both the phones are awesome and are well to do. The processor of Nokia N9 is 1GHz Cortex A8 CPU with TI OMAP 3630 chipset while the processor of Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is 1GHz Scorpion processor with Snapdragon chipset. Snapdragon has been powering powerful phones like HTC HD2, the Nexus One and the HTC EVO 4G. OMAP hasn’t proved itself till now.

Winner – Nokia N9

Storage Capacity

Memory decides the capacity of data which you can carry around and this data includes your favorite songs, pictures of your friends and family and your childhood videos. This is what makes memory a major factor. Nokia N9 has got fixed memory of 16GB and 64GB but on the other hand Sony Ericsson Xperia ray provides you expandable memory up to 32GB and moreover you get a 4GB card with for the purchase.But I don’t think the versatility of Xperia will be enough to beat Nokia N9.

Winner – Nokia N9.


Price is the most important factor. If you are having a high budget then you can even afford iPhone 4 but if your budget won’t be enough then you won’t be able to buy even a Nokia 1100! The price of Xperia Ray is still not revealed but I will consider its price which most people have guessed i.e. Rs.31,000 or $690. The price of Nokia N9 was revealed on the day of its launch, its Rs.32,000 or $710. The gap between prices is not too high but can be a deciding factor.

Winner – Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray


Availability matters. What if you won’t be having any Nokia showroom but having a Sony showroom in your vicinity. It is quite obvious that you will go with Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray but there are exceptions too. I have seen people covering the distance of 1000 of kilometers to buy phones. This category depends as both the companies are fully established in India but still Nokia is considered better than Sony and hence there are more chances of finding a Nokia showroom than a Sony showroom.

Winner – Nokia N9

Battery Capacity

More battery allows you to work for longer time and if I would be a business man than I would prefer to buy a phone which has got style, features and longer ‘battery’. So battery sometimes also becomes important factor. The standby battery of Nokia N9 is 380 hours while the standby battery of Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is 50 hours more i.e. 430 hours and 50 hours means more than 2 days!

Winner – Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray

DreamBloggers Verdict

Both the phones have almost same specifications and are of equal quality but I think the reliability and the quality which Nokia is providing to its Indian customers is far better than that of Sony Ericsson and probably this is the reason why Nokia N9 is being chosen over Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray. Another reason for choosing Nokia N9 over Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is the reliability. Nokia phones are more reliable than the Sony Ericsson phones.
