this phone is amazing for the first month , but afterwards the UI (user interface/theme) feels cold/dull and boring. loading a custom rom makes it feel amazing again. but since the xperiaplay was released ages ago (in cellphone years) it doesnt really tackle my gaming needs as you feel it should . the single core 1ghz snapdragon isnt enough . but still for an outdated phone it can manage to run most apps high end phones can today.
the music playback is really crisp and feels delightful to listen with.
the camera says it's (5mp) but it feels like absolute sh1t. there is no zoom function it has stock android ui and feels like sony said ' this is a gaming phone ....but.... lets put a camera on for shits and giggles.
the battery life is fairly good it lasts me the day.
portablity is wonderful.
the touch screen doesnt feel ' snappy ' and it requires pressure from your hand to support the phone from the back in order for it to work 100%.
now as for the controls!!
this part should be read even if you own one!
first when using it the analoge touchpads feel horible but i found a way to make it smooth and easy to use!
cut out a screen protector and apply it to them! it works like a charm and i feel the urge of gaming again.
last but not least Price. that is the only reason i have purchased one. i live in australia and got one for 250 last year now its cheaper .
Most hated thing about it: IT NEEDS JELLYBEAN! or ATLEAST ICS!
thanks for reading. :)
this phone is rely nice perfect for a man i just bought this phone for my bf......
my old phone use to say camera error all the time all we had to do was remove the sd card and restart the device and it usually fix it
Is it the games for xperia play is paid??how about google play store?
I have a problem accessing the camera, it has been good but suddenly prompts an error "camera error - cannot connect to camera,
How do I take care of this!
Johnny, 02 May 2013its a network company in USAthnk u boss,i saw a xplay mobile with name of verizon (back side on the flip cover) in india is it works in india, im confused plz can u explain it clearly.thnk
Is there anything else like it (that is, an android phone with a gamepad)? For something so special and unique among phones, it's such a shame that this seems like the only one of its kind...
DO NOT GET THIS PHONE! My brother and I both got it and they both broke within a month or two. His screen turned grey and just stopped working. My SD card reader and battery holder came loose, so neither stay in. It has NO space on it. I have a 16 Gb sd card and only a few apps and pictures, still it tells me there is no space. I am not happy with this phone. The games are fine though..
are there no new games for xplay?can the games of psp be emulated ?how?tnx.pls help im used to my games.are there stil patronizing this kind of fun?pls help
mine gets extremely hot when charging and also hot when not chargeing as long as there is a fully charged battery inside, making it unsable. can anyone tell me what the problem is.
I can't use Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY in USA, wich I bought in Romania from Orange. Why ?. Thank you
Yeah! Sony did us MAKE.BELIEVE that the xperia play will have ICS update, man, lets hope that they can release the official ICS for the ill fated xperia play and since there are many stable roms, i know they can do it!!!
person who cares, 12 May 2013How do you take screen shots with my phone?Hold the power button until you get the option list, at the bottom should be a take screenshot button.
