Great little phone, Screen could be a little bigger and, CPU a bit faster, but there is overclocking software on the Google play store to sort that, so have mine running at 1.9Ghz, instead of the standard 1Ghz. :)
Have found the game pad easy to use although the shoulder pad buttons are a little sensitive. Touch screen is great although have noticed when it's laid flat on it's back the screen becomes unresponsive sometimes. sliding mechanism is built well, it's a good all rounder. The only drawback is OS updates have been stopped due to compatibility issues with the handset. Shame really, with the right software and decent mods, this phone can still pack a good punch with current phones. Full HD on camera isn't supported which to be honest, should've been an option. Overall I'd give it 4.5/5, it has it's faults.. But it always makes people stare when I slide it open to reveal a gamepad and start playing PS classics! :)

The best thing I can suggest is for you to backup your files and hard reset your phone - Ensure that your memory card is still good since the pictures is save directly on the micro sd

Truly an amazing idea for an android phone... with the PS controls and all, I really love that about the phone. But I would really love it even more if they made an Xperia Play 2 with much better performance, dual/quad core, more RAM, and for goodness sake bigger Internal memory... it is a Gaming phone after all :/

someone help me I want to root my device but I don't know how to do it someone to explain to me with details.
I have owned this cellphone for 9 months now, and, although it delivers what it promises, I haven't had the best experience with it. I let it take a splash, and, even as it wasn't much water (seriously) and I immediately dried it and let it for two days in a jar with calcium cloride crystals, digitizer stopped working. When I took it to the authorized service, it showed corrosion signals on the technician's lab and I lost the warranty due to "humidity", but the digitizer came back working. Some months after, I got a problem with some apps (Strava Cycling, Last.fm) that couldn't write user data, so after resetting the device to factory, things started working again. Last but not least, last week the screen started showing only white noise, unless I slid the device open. Another trip to the lab, and it shows the main flatwire is worn out (plastic is all cracked, and some of the wires too), and it's too expensive to fix it.
It's not a bad device, however, it's fragile. So, if you are thinking about buying it or already own it, play it safe with your Play.
It looks like a game and a phone it is like a psp go it is nice from the other reviews I have seen it and i am probably going to buy it when I have the money I really want to root it even if you don't know what rooting an android is search on it on google
Zooming required hardware not a software,if sony not install that hardware to the xplay camera,so imposible to do zoom
ghasan.hasan, 27 Mar 2013I have xperia play but I can't find any app make the camera zoom work ??
Could u help me by g... moreThere is no such program out there on a non-rooted phone, which has the capability of making the camera zoom work. However, rooting your phone might be beneficial since there are several applications and other android os, which can make your camera zoom on objects. Unfortunatly, those applications which have been shown on youtube are probably fake. I have used Camera zoom ex and other programs but they had the same conclusion, they couldn't make the Xperia play Zoom.
