Can anyone please help me in understanding how to delete applications from phone memory.
Sorry If I am asking too much . But could this ( someway work for Gsm networks in India or would it only be locked to mentioned networks ?
Also, Is there any place I can get an xperia play for similar prcie that I am getting at Amazon ( $ 230 ) . If I can then that would save me from waiting a month to get it when my friend arrives. Tnx :)
red, 20 Oct 2012Im in india, using the r800i. Good phone to get, a crowd pleaser with charming looks. just mak... moreHey, Are u sure its r800i .. Are u using a cdma network of Gsm coz I heard somewhere sony made r800a for Indain and South American gsm markets and r800i for USA and Europe. Can anyone shed light on whats the difference between the two (if any ) and which model is better ?
Also I know Its Internal memory is really low , does it really hamper the performance of the phone ? My sensation 4g (which i loved) , was stolen last month so only reason i am getting this fone coz its cheap ( 230$ ) and I love old emultaor games . Although fone's specs are pretty outdated now. But i dont need Ics or Jb or all the bells and whistles so I am ok with Gb as long as games run well. Anyway , do u recommend this phone now taht u have been using it for some time ?
I bought my Xperia play last December 2011. I was very eager to own this due to the touchscreen experience that the psp is lacking. Well, I had the best gaming experience of my life then (the wealth of controls: touchscreen, 2 responsive round touchpads!!!, PS keys, gyro sensors) until the flex cable gave in 7 months later (June 2012). I had it in my jacket on my way to work and then my bag slammed on it and from the sound I knew I nearly killed it. It's still on repairs and it's sorely missed. A lot of games I haven't played yet. I'm retiring it once I get a PLAY2 or Android PS Vita phone.
I've accidentally dropped it face-down from a height of 2meters about 4 times with no apparent damage on the screen. However, the drops caused the chrome-painted Android keys below the screen to easily lose their shine over time. It takes away some off this beauty but it's nothing to complain of since I usually play in the dark.
The screen is not Bravia and thus brighter and better viewing angles than Bravia-certified Xperia phones. I thinks some review sites forget about this benefit from non-Bravia screen. But it's still a pain to use in daylight..dim!
The casing is of very high quality piano-black glossy plastic that don't crack. No complaints there.
The loudspeaker is very good!! Not that loud but very clear. The video framerate is impressive.
The 5MP camera is very good in daylight but suffers from RED-EYE in night mode and slow shutter speed. I still use my Nokia E72 preferrably in photos. But the Play is very good in capturing HD videos.
Only complaints: Thick and Heavy. Game deck gets easily scratched by slide mechanism. Gingerbread. I'm not too eager to flash ICS/JB since these might kill the PS controls.
i think its a fantastic phone and i personally love it, i just wanna know if it has the potential to play downloaded PSP games(from the playstation store) considering the fact that this came out after the PSP go
manne, 20 Oct 2012i am from india and i use aircel gsm.. i want to know which model of xperia play i should buy?... moreIm in india, using the r800i. Good phone to get, a crowd pleaser with charming looks. just make sure u get a large memory card to go with it or else u cant have much games and end up failing to use the phone to its full potential. main drawback will be with the phone's internal memory though.
i am from india and i use aircel gsm.. i want to know which model of xperia play i should buy? xperia play r8ooi or xperia r8ooa?
