    Purchased an Orange SF about 8 months ago which was my first smartphone - really enjoyed using it but feel it's now time to upgrade to something a bit better.

    Wants:

    - £200-250 on PAYG or Sim free
    - No bigger than 3.5 inch screen - for me the iPhone is the perfect size, not a fan of these oversized phones
    - Good looks ideally

    That's about it really. From my research so far this is the best option I can come up with. Does anyone have one that can comment or can you suggest any alternatives I should also be taking a look at.

    The Nexus S is £199 at the Carphone Warehouse, it's a 4" screen but it really isn't difficult to handle.

    Will take a look at the Desire S - how much can these be had for and does it have any particular benefits over an Xperia ray?

    Don't particularly like the look of that Nexus S - aesthetics are quite important to me.

    the ray seems tiny, it feels too small, and that's despite me using a nokia 5800 with same size screen :-O

    look at the other sony phones, you might be able to get a arc s for example

    Are you guys not listening? He doesn't like the big screens... so far we've had Desire S, Nexus S and Xperia Arc S (I have an Arc, the screen is huge!).

    Xperia Ray has same spec as the Arc but a smaller screen, so seems perfect in this instance.
