This phone is a waste of money
1Ghz single core processor? Can't even handle the games that would be worth playing on this phone without an overclock and lupus
What you wanna do is get a nexus 5 and equip it with a moga controller
This phone was alright it lasted for about two years. The disappointments of this phone is the internal memory I only downloaded one app and it was already on low storage. Every time I use this phone to go on the internet such as YouTube, Instagram etc. it will crash immmediately after I click on the app. The camera was ok and the internet browsing was pretty quick. Unfortunately, it fell in the toilet and stopped working.
guys can you play nba 2k14 good with this even with low settings? to SONY.. PLEASE MAKE XPERIA PLAY 2
Guys if you come to this phone remember its 3 years old i had the normal xperia version of it with the keyboard and it ran perfectley smoothly. And that is not a lie the only problem is that both the play and normal version have cheap paint coating and after a year and a half the backcovers paint started to chip becouse of the numerous accidental drops however the screen remained intact and only cracked after a rage mode on a game which ended up in bending the phone itself untill it cracked and to my recall that was about 40 degrees because of its materials so for a first phone it is extremely durable and three years on it still keeps chuging on a 1ghz single core😃
MaxSuzy, 24 Feb 2014What if Sony refresh Xperia Play with 5 inch 720p Super AMOLED,Nvidia Tegra K1 SoC,32GB+MicroS... moreI go with you MaxSuzy! I'll wait for this kind of unit. Will Sony create this type of Cellphone knowing that they separated with Ericsson?
Aussie, 24 Feb 2014My 15 year old son is hassling me to buy him one for xmas and I just wanted to know if it is w... morepsp play is worth for its value as of today. Not that expensive and gives you best quality photos knowing that its only 5MP. Games are downloadable through wifi- connection. Playing music at its best using headphones or even its own speaker. My PSP Play gives me all in one gadget I need for my everyday living.
512 mb is anemic and also internal memory is only 400 mb...what a crap kind of a cellphone is this.
What if Sony refresh Xperia Play with 5 inch 720p Super AMOLED,Nvidia Tegra K1 SoC,32GB+MicroSDXC slot,8MP Exymor Sensor(as this is gaming device) and the most importantly 4000mAh Li-Po battery it will be a monster in Android gaming comparable to the likes of Nvidia Shield and even the PSVita itself
So, basically if I want to buy a smartphone and also play video games, there aren't many options out there? (In terms of video game handheld/smartphone fusion)
Regarding the OS, which indeed seems aged, this is still a good choice. Modified and OverClocked to 1800 MHz puts this Phone in Place to beat currently marketed Phones. You will not sense a lag in playing RipTide GP and many other games, while others crash in ICS and Jelly Bean. Others suffer under buggy GPU drivers while this one is simply working. It has stereo speakers and has some hearable bass, which is excellent for its size anyway. I made a mistake buying a CM Flare here in Asia (Adreno 203) and could not enjoy gaming without battery drains, freezes and even reboots. GingerBread is overall more stable than those ICS and JB. I had to go back to my xPeria Play. I look again for a replacement, when the android market survived the Android 4.x generation and the reviews overall tend more to be positive. Actually I see a lot of companies putting ICS and JB - Kitkat, whatsoever on low spec phones without undergoing quality, usability checks. Just to make money.

Invisible, 23 Dec 2013Guys, i need a great help from you. Can u tell me which smartphone is better this model i.e. X... moreThough XPlay is a great phone and all, I don't reccomend getting it. There are HUGE chances for it to break completely. Galaxy S Duos isn't that great of a phone, but I'm sure it will last you a few years. So DO NOT buy the Xplay because it's unreliable and the OS is old.
I first bought the phone in January 2012, back then it was one of the greatest phones available. Had no problems, gaming was great, couldn't complain about my first smartphone. Still had some minor problems like the camera, which didn't have zoom, the battery, which for a heavy user like me was a bit of an inconvenience, and the small internal memory that caused some lags at time. Still, it was a very good phone for me, because I'm a gamer and I play a lot of games.
I first had a huge problem in Summer 2012, when it broke down and it wouldn't start up. I was lucky though, because a simple Android update solved it.
The phone worked for a while untill April-May this year when the touchscreen stopped working at times. After a few days like this, the touchscreen didn't work at all. After a week or so, the phone broke completely. At a GSM service, they told me the CPU was broken, the phone couldn't be repaired.
My experience with the phone was great while it lasted, shame it has so much problems. Kinda justifies why Sony didn't release an ICS update for it, because they knew the phone isn't reliable at all. If it didn't have all these hardware and software breakdown problems, I wouldn't have problems reccomending it to anyone. Anyway, do not buy this phone, because it is old and unreliable nowadays. I am going to buy a HTC Desire 500 or an LG Optimus F6 as a replacement for this phone
