It's been 7 years and there's no sign of a successor to the best ever Android gaming phone design Xperia Play. It fits the title of a gaming phone due to hardware keys which provide excellent haptic feedback. I would be happy to see Sony Xperia Play 2 with hardware buttons and upgraded everything according to the 2018 standard. C'mon Sony.

I mean, why would you pay a price like that on a 2011 phone? Don't expect too much and rant here in GSMArena. Think before posting dude.
This phone probably had a manufacturing defect. Tried every bit to revive the phone from the fuzzy screen but sony themselves didn't know how to handle the issue. Result - Status : discontinued. Put me and thousands others in deep trouble. Lost 31K on this. Could buy a beast like the one plus 5 with that amount. When you make phones, atleast make sure you test them enough rather than capitalizing on some new trend that you set.

Still using it. Still supported by Google Play Store. Rooted my device for better storage management (Link2SD). Playing retro games flawlessly with this device. Loving it because of the physical gaming pad.

hi! i want to know if this phone are supported to play warcommander in kixeye?? if can play, they need to installed apps to activate the game of war commander?
thanks! hoping for response
I miss this phone. Not having to touch the screen when playing. And the feel of those touch pads in the middle.
After my Xperia Z Ultra C6833 broke on me I've decided that instead of getting a current device (I was going to get a Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro)I'm going to get myself an Xperia Play instead. Just ordered it from Ebay and I can't wait.
--If anyone here owns one and uses a custom rom for R800i, could you please tell me which ROM you use and whether or not you use SWAP for the extra RAM? Thank you in advance to any replies.
