I can't understand why this phone is so underrated.
It's original, it lets you play like no other and it isn't as overpriced as some Apple's, Samsung's or HTC's euivalent models.
The concept behind the Xperia Play is both fun and original making it a phone that isn't similar to any other.
In a grey world where all phones seem to imitate each other, the Xperia Play was a groundbreaking innovation that I believe should be recognised and praised as such.
Otherwise, consumers will keep on accepting more of the same, allowing manufactureres to "do new with the old" and getting obscene profits from it!
what firmware does it use? is it the same with the normal psp's? does rpg games work? do i need to have a custom firmware to use iso/cso games? does it lag?

alfonso99, 07 Feb 2012wanna ask if i change my 16gb memory card with 32gb.. can i transfer all the data from old mem... moreYes you can transfer all your files from one to other sd card except if you make a partition on your sd card.
I really like this phone. Not a brilliant screen, but nice resolution.
The phone isn't too expensive and it delivers what it promises: very fun to play with, GPS and many "adult" features, sucha as Office, imaging tools and others.
With a 32GB card, you'll store everything you need to work and play with.
Too bad there isn't video calling, albeit there is a front camera.
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2012The Xperia Play doesn't allow you to make video calls via native 3g without a data plan.
You'... moreThat's what I meant:
Sony's Xperia Play, as many Android phones, doesn't support native 3G video calls.
Unfortunately, you'll have to sign up a data plan (pay the extra cost and be limited to the inclusive data) and install third-party programmes to be able to enjoy video calls, now.
We've actually gone backwards in time as far as video calling availabilty is concerned.

PG, 06 Feb 2012There ISN'T voice call via 3G. You can't just dial a number and select video calling like in ... moreThe Xperia play doesn't have native video calling. You'll need to install some app (gmail, skuype) and then you'll get video call over data which - in europe - means you'll have to get yourself an extra data plan and, eve then, be very careful with traffic limits.
I'm gonna buy this phone in a few months and I'm just wondering, what's the latest Android version for the Xperia play?
Rembo, 07 Feb 2012First,i doubt with this phone,till i heard news from xda that playstation suite is coming real... moreYou are right,
Very True Bro,
I feel the same like you,
But Xperia PLAY also play some hardcore games :)
good graphics, my only problem is RAM,
but amazingly even though when I'm starting a high graphical game when around 100mb RAM available, but the game never lags....
Great JOB by SE
waiting to see Sony's Xperia PLAY version...
First,i doubt with this phone,till i heard news from xda that playstation suite is coming really soon.Then does sony will port some of PSP game titles.
2 Days ago,i bought this phone,and i really satisfied,fully satisfied for sure.
This phone is the n1 solution for people like me..who are gamers,but not want to get handheld gaming device such as ps vita.
I have a job,so i retired to be hardcore gamer,maybe all of my friends in the office would laugh at me if i play ps vita in front of them..:p
i have this phone and i hate how it goes into dock mode when plugging in an auxhiliary cord or headphones. i have to turn it off and on again to put the screen back to normal. how else can i turn off dock mode without restarting the phone?
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2012"What you always have is video call over Data connections, such as Gmail or Skype"
... moreThe Xperia Play doesn't allow you to make video calls via native 3g without a data plan.
You'll have to pay for a data plan and install a 3rd. party application to get video calls.
green robot, 05 Feb 2012yes there is video calling as i own this fone and use the feature, what amkes u think there wo... moreYou need to be subscribed to a service provider to get 3G NETWORK connectivity. We often call this kind of service a data plan or network plan.
Gmail and Skype depend on having a data plan.
In order to use Skype, you need a little Skype Credit or an appropriate subscription.
None of the above are needed on regular 3G Operator video calls:
You just dial a number and select whether you want a voice-only or a video call.
In Europe, people pay operators two kinds of plans:
> a "obligatory" voice/video call plan (which obviously includes) SMS.
> An extra Data Plan, which they pay separately, and includes traffic limitation and allows them to use Skype, browse the Internet, watch Youtube, etc.
That means that most people use video calls without any extra program, app... or payment:
They just dial and select video-call.
You used to have that on older Sony models.
Nowadays, Android has assumed that everyone has a data plan and tries to sell their google-related progs, so it withdraws that possibility from "google-dependent" phones.
The result is that brands that include video call capability on their phones tend to be more successful.
Just take a look at Samsung's sales reports...
