Auto flash and swapping memmory cards: Not possible?

Pardon me if this was already addressed.

I being a sony ericsson user from the first mobile I bought. Currently I am using K810. Now that I wanted a android phone, I short listed, xperia neo and ray. I visited a shop last week to check out these phone and immediately fell love with Ray.

After reading a review online, I have these following 2 concerns

1. Ray dont have an auto flash, which is a really let down. Is SE planning to modify this with any software update?

2. Memory is not hot swappable. Though I can live with that, I wonder, even when any lower end phone can do that, Why SE cant do it on Ray?

Re: Auto flash and swapping memmory cards: Not possible?

I might be a little biased because I LOVE my Xperia ray and you would have to fight me for it Winking Face

1) You're right it doesn't. We've never modified the flash functions of a phone in the past, and although anything is possible, its unlikely. On the other hand, the pictures it does take in low light (most of my low light experience is at a bar or pub), aren't terrible. I'm not photo expert, I just like to post on Facebook, but it's good enough for that.

2) It's not hot swappable because it physically can't be done, although I assume you knew that. I assume this isn't a priority considering phones are supporting 32GB at this point, and its not seen, by me anyway, as a need. Please tell me your specific situation, so I have a better idea.

Re: Auto flash and swapping memmory cards: Not possible?

Thanks Martha.

well the case is same here, I biased towards SE. And I am going for Ray...

I think, I would have choosed Ray even if I were not biased. Because
1. For me, mobile camera is for an emergencey situation.

2. As for hot swapping, I dont remember an instance where I have used the feature with my current phone (K810i).....
