it ahas a 19hr max battery life on my regular use. it sucks, compared to my samsung note that takes 3-4 days to drain the bat.
[deleted post]No worries. I hope you don't lose any sleep over this issue. I know I won't.
I don't care whoever you are. I am not MR. DIRECT SPEAK and I'm not speaking on behalf of MR. DIRECT SPEAK.
I'm terribly disappointed with Sony/SE. I have my Xperia Arc for ages but I haven't got the promised ICS update. Now, how about that? As I said, they're fast in terms of false advertisement but when it comes to customer support, they're second to none. I just want my update.
Here's my opinion to Xplay. If you can make it run on Gingerbread which is Android, why can you not run it on any Android OS? Might just not work? So why did it work on Gingerbread in the first place?
Oh come on! Don't f**k me with your answers.
DIRECT SPEAK, 20 Aug 2012same to u x2222 ..now go n cry ..xperiaplay upset owners -many thousands can teach u some b... moreDo you even know what the word manners means? You are the one getting violently upset over an update that for many phones does not work well at all. Sony did say that they were going to release an update for the phone and then backed off because it may not work. If the update was released and your phone was not working then you would be crying about that too. By the way some of your comments still don't make sense to me.
if I buy an0ther ph0ne i'll n0t sell my xperia play. .l0ve it vry much. .

Vaishnav, 17 Aug 2012Sony is completely trustworthyvaishnava -- read comments of many who feel deceived by sony -- ur opinion is urs --sony PERCEIVED TO HAVE cheated- deceived with false excuses on xperiaplay NO UPGRADE == NO NEW ICS APPS NO GOOGLE CHROME ON XPLAY .
DIRECT SPEAK, 14 Aug 2012WHY SUCH LONG WINDED speech .. u love sony ..so u do .. many feel deceived by sony fony -thats... moreGet over it. Do you really want a software update that many are saying is rubbish? Why should Sony apologise? Maybe the fact that they backed away from the Play getting the ICS update was a good decision. If the only reason you bought an Xperia Play was because you wanted an update, you are wasting your life on such a petty matter.
Bye Bye Xperia Play, you were a good companion in my moments of boredom, Hello Samsung G-Note, hopefully you'll take up where Xplay left off.
I thank you.
I have had this phone for about a year now. and i am very disappointed in the lack of interest sony take into this phone, i live in the middle east and the ps pocket does not work. i am limited to 5 games on my phone if more it will say "no storage space" and the constant lag i get from the phone. i have grown bored of the phone and havent used the gamepad for months now. i truly regret that i bought this phone. and when they said no ics i just got furious for i have been waiting for it for months now. hoping for an upgrade. im throwing away this phone or use it for tests and buy an htc one x instead.

"We can confirm that there will be no compensation offered to Sony Ericsson Xperia Play owners as a result of this cancellation, all we can do is aplogise for any inconvenience you may experienced."
This is the answer from sony after having sold the Xplay as an ICS phone.
And THAT is the main problem: as a reputed company, sony's developers and marketeers knew exactly how important ICS was in selling a brand new phone wih an innovative gamepad.
Every sensible customer would ask:
"Is this worth the price?
Has it got any future?"
As the phone was expensive and the gamepad was supposed to be more than a temporal marketing gimmick, promising ICS upgrade was a definitive advantage and a strong selling point.
Sony knew upgrading the Xperia Play would increase its life, its compability and, thus, increase its value and sales.
And that was taken for granted all along.
It was not something people imagined r wishe... It was promised at the buying moment!
No one - in good faith - doubted this phone would be upgradable to Android 4.0.
But as sales plumbered, Sony released the Vita console and simply lost interest in a phone that wasn't profitable enough.
They simply broke their promise and denied what had always been announced.
Would the Xperia have sold as it did if the ICS upgrade wasn't taken for granted?
Consumers have every right to feel deceived.
The Xperia Play was meant to get ICS, its price reflected that.
And, in order to keep selling, Sony continued reporting it would all be fixed, and their developers were working to get customers the best gaming experience.
Someone with coroporate responsibilities has lied, has deceived thousands of buyers from all over the world.
How will consumers feel when new games (such as "Broken Sword") will be only available to ICS as minimum requirement?
Sony only cared abut aking more and more money and deserted the phone because it wasn't profitable enough.
If they wanted to, we would already be playing on Android 4.x!
There is no doubt about that!
Sony's rationale for canning the ICS for the Xperia PLAY was performance issues with games.
If this was true,If this was indeed to be believed, then one has to wonder why Sony hasn't released the updated Adreno 205 driver. The driver update was released by Qualcomm on the 30th of December at the end of LAST YEAR. The update is believed to give a performance increase of up-to 1.5x or even 2x in some cases depending on phone and app. This is just one in a number of very simple measures that Sony could but haven't taken to bring us a stable ICS to the Xperia PLAY. Another is the clock speed/frequency. It is currently clocked to a measly 1Ghz while it can be safely clocked to as high a frequency as 1.9Ghz, so why not clock it to a still very stable 1.4Ghz, would this not increase performance to a sufficient enough level?
Alas, this brings me back to my earlier criticisms of Sony's dev team and their utter incompetence, or at best, lack of giving a damn for supporting older devices. I was foolish to expect better from Sony, a lesson well learnt indeed.
Forget about the gamepad guys this phone has only single core processor
So if you want play games just buy samsung galaxy s2 and ps3 controller.
I say forget ics if you own a Play, the play works perfectly well the way it is. if your desperate for ics get an ics compatible phone and buy a bluetooth controller!! Forget the new games on the android market and go back to the old school where games were written well, instead of trying to showcase a device's capabilities with no heart. alot of people are overlooking the PLAY's emulation capabilities. i have fspe (playstation 1 emulator) installed on my play and all of the roms (that i own legally on disk i might add!!) run perfectly well. the game pad works perfect and you get the same joy out of playing timeless titles like ff7, metal gear solid and soul blade......etc etc as you did when they were first released. Guys, use your heads. don't be a loser and try to compete with the next person with the latest handset/os, just be happy with what you have! p.s can't blame sony for trying to run a business!!
