Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play review: Bring your 'A' game - read the full textWith video gaming a sport in its own right, smartphones have no other choice but raise their game too. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play has strong ties to Sony’s gaming rigs, both portable and not, and Sony’s a big name...

Just made a short Skype video call (about 30MB?) which cost me approx. 4,5USD!!!
It's absurd.
WIth my monthly phone payment plan (about 17USD per month) I get free unlimited voice ad video calls plus up to 2000 SMS.
I can't afford to pay this kind of extra "fee"!
When I used my old k800i, I called my family (which had a cheap V630i) via VDF everyday: I placed - at least - 2 video calls each weekend and I "only" paid the monthly price. No extra payments were required.
And none of us had to install any extra software. I just phoned my family as I would in a "normal" voice call. That was it.
Why has Android gone back?
Won't Xperia phones receive software to allow regular 3G video calls as HTC or Samsung phones still do?
I hope so, as I am the one who has the latest phone model and the only one who can't make video calls... Sad, really.

I would like to ask a couple of questions:

> Will pre-installed games still be "there" in our phone, after installing a new OS, namely, ICS (Android 4.0)?
Won't that wipe all the phone's content?

> Does this phone now allow voice call over 3g?
Latest firmware descriptions seem to point in that direction, but I would like to hear it from an unbiased user.
If not, are there any plas to allow 3G video calling in Androd 4 (ICS)?

Thak you.

@ TC... If you want so many high specs in a phone, then go and buy a PS3 man! Because making a gaming smartphone is most commendable thing SE did! So stop bashing it over specs! Go and use it first!

Well, there are plenty of good 12 month contract deals for this now in the UK...
And you know...
I was torn between this and Galaxy S2...
BUT
As I have a GS1, and after going into a shop and playing with both...
You know what...
For 12 months...
I'm going for this...
It's something quirky, something different, unique...
AND
Supporting this now will lead to the Xperia Play 2 - and that can't be a bad thing!!!
:)

even though xperia play doesn't have a HDMI port but the service menu says a different. I managed to get into service menu of play and saw HDMI in service test like. Though in the list they are many feature which are not part of the list but when i try to test them it actually says the "feature is not supported" but not in the case of HDMI the hdmi test does happens but there is no actual port to test it.

I got rid of this phone because the battery life is crap, screen to dark in bright light, the new touch thumb controls are rubbish and completely useless for shooters. Very disappointed, the controls are what makes or breaks this mobile and it's very much broken!
