Cant believe people are moanin about 3g video calls, if you want them so bad get an app, your all just bone idle, the weight and low memory is the only downside to the play overall a freakin awesome phone I wouldnt upgrade because you get these phones with all the power and no where to use it so really dont see the point
Xperia play rubbish , 17 May 2012Give 5 out of ten for play controls. the size and weight is so awful it pulls your trousers do... moreThis phone is no more, or no less (as you prefer) than announced.
If you want a light, slim phone, you must be really dumb if you buy an Xplay!
If you want a true gamepad, then you'll have to sacrifice and read the phone's specifications.
It's not the world's best phone, it should have a larger internal memory, it almost literally forces you to root in order to get some games and apps into the sd card... well, it's far from being flawless...
But, at the end of the day, it's the only phone that allows you to hang up your calls, turn off your gps and slide your pad to start playing without having your fingers all over the screen, providing you a true "console-like" gaming experience.
That's the ghole point of buying an XPlay in a market filled with a multitude of different brands and models to choose from.
Simply love the fact that others envy the fact that their big thumbs cover the screen when playing. Wish they'll have XPlay 2 with Super AMOLED screen, better GPU and better CPU.
Give 5 out of ten for play controls. the size and weight is so awful it pulls your trousers down got rid and got Xperia arc s much better phone overall I'd give 4 out of ten don't recommend
Sssdxs, 14 May 2012Can you put games in this phone??????????.......NO you cant.. the control pad is just a design. you use the playstation buttons so you can full your friends that your phone is a PSP

I realized something about the Play after reading this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=19676369&postcount=27
Sony isn't really gonna do much in terms of updates for the play. And the reason is simple. It's such an awesome phone that if they gave it all the latest updates, no one would want/need to upgrade to a newer phone and give sony $$$.
All we can hope is that since this is all software, some community modders/developers will port all this stuff to the play. sony for sure are not going to.
ASnowmanHowSad, 09 May 2012Is a radio really that important when it can handle 32GB MicroSD cards? AND is able to stream music?It must be.
That is why the Samsung have both FM Radio and Video Calling and is a record seller whilst the xperia keep selling so very little.
People know what they want and that is refleted on sales figures.
Better phones end up selling more and being more successful.
Android phones with 3G video calls and FM Radio have prove that beyond any reasonable doubt.
ASnowmanHowSad, 09 May 2012Is a radio really that important when it can handle 32GB MicroSD cards? AND is able to stream music?Yes. For all those who haven't got unlimited or free wifi connections, for those who have to pay extra for limited traffic data connections, it does make a difference.
And the same applies to the lack of native 3g video calls.
That is why some phones are much more successful than others.
If Sony is commited to providing good quality products and fully understands their customers' feedback, it's about time Sony's managers start noticing what their costumers wish and complain about and try not to lose an even larger market share.
sam1101, 07 May 2012having all specifications except radio...WTF!!!!Is a radio really that important when it can handle 32GB MicroSD cards? AND is able to stream music?
