  • Excerpt: If you are a gaming fanatic, then you will be jumping with joy after hearing that the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play has entered the market, and if you are a parent of a gaming fanatic kid then you better lock your gamers. And though the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is a tad on the chubby side, we think that for Xperia Play, bigger is better and beautiful.

Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Android Smartphone Review

The Gadgeteer
14 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Smartphones with slide out keyboards are not unusual. But the same can’t be said about a smartphone with a slide out gaming controller. The Sony Xperia PLAY (aka the Playstation Phone) from Sony Ericsson and Verizon Wireless is an Android powered smartphone for those of you that love to play games but aren’t so thrilled with using the touch screen to do so.
  • Pros: Controller makes this phone feel like a dedicated gaming device, Nice camera, Great sound quality
  • Cons: Volume button placement not optimal, Controller doesn't work with all games, Display could be brighter, Notification LED oddly placed

  • Conclusion: The first Playstation Certified phone is off to a good start. The game selection is certainly the most impressive we've seen on Android, with several enticing titles, and the promise of more. We'd love to see more Sony franchise games on the Xperia Play, but Sony's not sharing details. The controller makes a world of difference for gaming, and the hardware is both sturdy and attractive.
  • Pros: Great gaming controller, sharp display, excellent speakers, atttractive and solid build.
  • Cons: No dual core CPU and no 4G LTE.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Review

Digitaltrends
13 June 2011
  • Conclusion: If you want the most gaming-friendly Android phone, this is it. But don’t cancel your PSP Go purchase just yet. The first “PlayStation-certified” phone is only a handheld gaming console in the same way a bicycle with an engine bolted onto it is a motorcycle – the difference is all in the details.
  • Pros: Slide-out game controller, Clean Android install, Vibrant 4.0-inch LCD, Attractive Sony styling, Acceptable 5.1-megapixel camera
  • Cons: Bulky design, Controls work with limited game selection, Touch-based analog controls, No 4G, Smudgy screen

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Follow Up Video Review

AndroidSPIN
6 June 2011
  • Conclusion: So here’s the video of the device with a quick rundown of the hardware and games side.  I’m not covering the Verizon apps that come on the device, it has all the usual stuff installed.  I will say that this is an almost virgin Android experience device, which was very surprising given Sony Ericsson’s previous devices. If you haven’t purchased the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play yet and you’r looking to get one.

Sony Xperia Play Review: Finally, An Android Phone For Gaming - And Not Much Else

Android Police
1 June 2011
  • Summary: Using the Xperia Play has been quite a mixed bag before me. While it accomplishes its game-playing goal quite well, and the stock Android UI makes for a very smooth user experience, this is still a very hefty phone, and that is likely to put a lot of potential customers off. It's hard to tell the target demographic here - hardcore mobile gamers will probably be more content just buying a PSP or waiting for the new PlayStation Vita, while everybody else will be tempted by...

  • Summary: Sony PlayStation Portable fanatics looking to consolidate their mobile gaming and messaging devices into one will find a lot to like in the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. It's a stylish device with a bright and colorful display, and it has performance and battery life to spare. However, as with most hybrid devices, the Xperia Play has to make some concessions: As a gaming platform, its controls were not as easy to use as a dedicated gaming device, and as a phone, the Xperia...
  • Pros: Fast performance, Big bright screen, Great for mobile gaming, Long battery life
  • Cons: Small Android buttons, Analog touch joystick not very responsive, Lacks 4G, Doesn't support video chat apps yet

Review: Sony Xperia Play

gadgetsteria.com
31 May 2011
  • Conclusion: The Xperia Play is an awesome phone! For gamers who also happen to love Android, it’s a dead giveaway. However, that’s not to say the Xperia Play is without faults. For starters, we found the display offered up sub-par viewing angles, though was made for with excellent color reproduction when the right angle was found. For a phone that’s marketed towards gaming, we find that a careless oversight.
