  • Summary: Few devices are meant to flatter while the others are meant to perform. It is rarely that we find a device which is a bit of both, and Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is truly one such contraption. After a long wait the Xperia Play has finally been released in selective markets and this post would help you know about the various features that the Xperia Play has got to offer.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play review

3 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Now here's a thing, a phone that you can play games on -- whatever next? But this isn't just any old games phone, it's the first ever PlayStation -certified smart phone. It's a chunky piece of kit at 119x62x16mm and 175g, certainly compared to the waif-like lines of its sister device, the Xperia Arc.
  • Pros: PS3-style controls, Stonkingly good screen, Fast processing Android 2.3, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, 5.1 megapixel camera, Flash video support

  • 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.
  • Pros: Dedicated gaming controls, large high resolution screen.
  • Cons: Weight, lack of brightness, not the best use of Gingerbread., Ineffective touch pads for gaming.
