Sony Ericsson Xperia Play review

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play – Revolutionizing Mobile Gaming?
7 November 2011
Excerpt: Mobile gaming is a big part of the smartphone agenda, or even the lower end segment. The Xperia Play was all set to revolutionize the mobile gaming industry and I was looking forward to it doing so.
Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY puts a gaming twist on the standard smartphone model. The phone features a full PSP-like gamepad that slides out from underneath the phone's 4 inch, LED backlit 480 x 854 TFT LCD screen that features capacitive multi-touch capabilities.
Summary: So where do I start with this one? Ahhh I know, the X10i, let’s take all those things that were just no good, even though that’s most of the handset, and throw it out the window, lets take all the good stuff about it, and keep it. This is where we start with the Xperia Play .
Pros: Screen tech is bright and crisp, Excellent in direct sunlight, Fast and snappy, Android 2.3.2, Great sound quality and volume, Nicely done skins, Built-in Gamepad
Cons: Stock camera app, Cramped feel when using gamepad, Heavy, Filmsy back cover
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.
Conclusion: The Xperia Play is neither the best portable console nor the best smartphone, but it brings the unique offering of both in one device. However, we would recommend having separate devices for each purpose if your bank balance allows. µ
Pros: Dedicated gaming controls, large high resolution screen.
Cons: Weight, lack of brightness, not the best use of Gingerbread., Ineffective touch pads for gaming.
Excerpt: Now this is my personal review for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play! The Long awaited Playstation Phone that was eagerly awaited from the very first rumours that emerged from the labs at Sony Ericsson.
Summary: The Xperia Play is a good buy if you are looking for a phone which can double up as a gaming device. It is a smartphone worth having. When the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play entered the market, it was the most discussed handset among hardcore gamers and mobile enthusiasts.
Pros: Slide-out game pad, 5-megapixel camera
Cons: Touch-screen gaming controls, Lack of HDMI port
Conclusion: In many ways, the immersive gaming experience on the Xperia Play helps you to forget about the niggles I mentioned earlier. Do I care if the phone has a plastic covered screen when I’m battering the CPU at FIFA? No.
