Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA Play - Smartphone

Game Boyz
20 September 2011
  • Excerpt: For the last couple of weeks I have had the opportunity to check out Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA Play phone. It amazes me that in just a few short years how mobile phone and media devices have changed. They keep getting smaller in size, but bigger with features, and the their versatility increases with every new wave. Right off the hop I will say that I found the XPERIA Play an amazing little device.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play 4G

16 September 2011
  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a gaming phone with a good selection of 3D titles and a real game controller built-in, the Playstation phone has obvious appeal. At $50, if you're not a dedicated gamer but you want a high quality Android smartphone with the latest OS, a sharp 4" display, a good 5MP camera, a 1GHz CPU and 4G HSPA+, it's hard to beat the Xperia Play, as long as you don't mind the thick body.
  • Pros: Great gaming controls, good call quality and reception.
  • Cons: Not a dual core CPU.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play review

12 August 2011
  • Summary: One of the questions I presented to you guys when I wrote the piece about playing games was if you should buy this phone, even if you aren't a gamer. The answer is yes. The Play is really a great Android device, no matter how you look at it. It runs stock Gingerbread and is fast in most things. There are a few quirks, of course; there isn't a device without them.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Review

4 August 2011
  • Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (also known as the “PlayStation Phone”) is, in my opinion, an excellent phone. I was a little anxious about being selected to review it before it was sent to us because I had been hearing some negative feedback about it. The main thing that I was most concerned with was the fact that there are those that  claim to have trouble with one of the key things that distinguish the device: the touchpad analog controls.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play review – does the fabled PlayStation phone live up to the hype?

14 July 2011
  • Conclusion: Yes! OK, I’ll be a little more specific! If you want a mobile phone that gives you the best gaming experience of any phone on the market – either now or any time in the past – then buy the Xperia Play . It is, quite simply, head and shoulders above all other phones when it comes to playing games.

Xperia Play Review

27 June 2011
  • Summary: Today, the smartphones in our pockets aren’t mere cellphones. They’re powerful portable computers that are capable of multitasking and functioning as an all-in-one device, whether that includes a little or a lot of calling, Web browsing, playing movies/music/games, checking email, taking pictures, shooting HD video, etc. We rely on mobile apps to provide additional functionality to the original hardware and we expect the phone to last all day without requiring a charge.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Review (hardware)

Gamers Daily News
16 June 2011
  • Summary: A very cool piece of technology for gaming and Internet. Less useful for texting and the call quality is poor, along with the price when you total it all up. Hopefully, this won’t turn into another iPhone that’s only available on Verizon for years and then on AT&T (which is far worse in my opinion) and eternally over-priced because as you can see, there are far better options for service.
