Very disappointed in Sony.
We were completely let down as they've stpped all support for this - not so long ago - flagship model.
Let there be no doubt about it: if it weren't for economic interests, we would already be playing on Android 4.x in our phones.
Sony just didn't care. It wasn't profitable and they had many "new" phones being released.
Abandoning customers after failing to keep their promises deserves the ill reputation sony's getting.
This phone is everywhere on second hand cheap sales as owners are trying to keep uptaded by buying some other brand.
If sony's abandoned their promises and neglected their customers, it is definitely time for customers, as myself, to look elsewhere.
Due to my experience, I cannot recommend any Sony phone, as the brand is NOT trustworthy.
Sony? Keep away from them.

olly#, 23 Aug 2012is the sony play upgradeable to ics in the uk yet.?I read on another site that Sony tested the Play on ICS & won't be offering an upgrade as the gameplay becomes unstable. Why does everybody want to upgrade when the phone does EVERYTHING you want! This phone is the BEST EVER!

hi, i just use this phone for almost a year. btw, i change my phone every year. but if u are looking for a PSP kind of phone. i think u will be disapointed. this is totally way off the psp standard. due to lack of internal memory. if u r looking to download app. this might not be the phone for u. even u wan to dl the game (take it u willing to pay) it will not have sufficient memory for u to dl a lot of game. So inconclusion. this is not a PSP. for gamer. i suggest you will look for another phone or consider PSP Vista.
phd160, 05 Sep 2012hi users of this phone, I want to get one of this cell but i want to know about more of it p... morei would advise not to get this phone as the slider becomes very loose and scratches the gamepad. it is also very bulky although it is only £150 unlocked. i had this phone from december to june- I then sold it and purchased a samsung galaxy nexus for £300. If ou like to game, then i suggest purchasing a ps vita. they are an amazing product.
