Very worried abou ics update.
Sony are keeping an outdated kernel which will kill many possible developments.
No word about a proprietary (or other) software to allow 3G video calling/chatting.
No official word about camera image compression improvements, either...
Customers should not wish ICS upgrade just because other phones already have it.
Th problem is that when people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other...
jordan_wei, 16 Apr 2012video recording is 720p???? right???720p even with stock camera apps, there is lot more
jordan_wei, 16 Apr 2012video recording is 720p???? right???It's on the "Specifications" page:
Camera Primary 5 MP, 2592х1944 pixels, autofocus, LED flash, check quality
Features Geo-tagging, image stabilization
Video Yes, 720p
Secondary Yes, VGA
jordan_wei, 16 Apr 2012video recording is 720p???? right???With the latest update YES. Out of the box NO.
very fine mobile phone. gamepad, no lagging, gps, great screen.
it has everything you want...
except video calls.
the front camera is there, but unless you can afford data plans and wifi, 3g video calling just isn't there.
that is this phone's main flaw. dommage.
maybe ics will bring us video callings ...
Hi, I was really exited when i bought the Xperia Play. I have been using it for last 4-5 months. Only thing i am not happy is with the battary life. It couldnt last even 2 hours while playing the PSP standerd games. I think, the OS has some flaws as well. I would love to see some upgrades and pathes comming in for the users. But over all performance- i should say i would ranked it 6.5 out of a point scale of 10.
ics xperia play vs ics xperia neo v which of these has a better battery life???????
gop, 15 Apr 2012we want video calls as samsung's, lg's, htc's and older sony models have. no ICS gadgets and ... moreNot gonna happen. Sony doesn't care about useful things, only flashy, blingy gimmicks which will give it more market share and visibility...
we want video calls as samsung's, lg's, htc's and older sony models have.
no ICS gadgets and gimmicks.
we want useful improvements to our phones.
that's not asking 4 much, is it?
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2012Can it be upgraded to ice cream sandwich??Yes, apparently the xperia play will be updated although Ram issues may appear.
ICS will demand much more from the already limited RAM...
Personally, I am much more interested in User Interface improvements.
Is the camera quality going to improve?
Are we finally going to get 3G video calls?
I sure hope so!

Sony: we want our front-facing cameras to make video calls, not to gimmicks such as "face unlock".
Please, grant us 3g video calls as samsung, lg and htc do.
We want the gamepad AND video calling:
We wish for the best of both worlds.
Very Good! loving it more because of emulators. i can play PS games like having a PSP. battery life are nice. mine can stand throughout the day with a heavy usage without disconnecting to wifi plus playing StreetFighter Alpha EX and Tekken3. the only cons for this is the 4 physical button, the chrome fades! Dont forget to buy protectors!
in addition the specs is yet still good up to date. GPU Adreno 205 and the CPU is a Qualcomm MSM8255T (Snapdragon S2) Clocked at 1ghz these specs are the same with the Latest Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC TItan2 which are clocked higher by 400 and 500mhz (1.4ghz/1.5ghz).
and this is the only android gaming phones with TRUE gaming controls at the moment! enjoy!
why my xPLAY screen often awake? it drain my battery very fast!
anyone know how to solve this?
i have a question: im going to buy a phone on the 20th of this month... and im still thing what to buy? xperia play or xpera neo v? and why ??
please answer !
