Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Review

  • 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. Do I care that the plastic used to make the phone feels slightly cheap when I’m enjoying a game of Crash Bandicoot? Of course not!

REVIEW: Sony Ericsson Xperia Play smartphone

Tech Digest
25 May 2011
  • Summary: On paper, the Xperia Play sounds like a master-stroke of device covergance, branding and usability, but in practice, it leaves a lot to be desired. While the chunky size necessitated by the controls would be more than justified if the gaming aspects lived up to expectations, it’s nowhere near as slick an experience as a dedicated handheld console.

  • Excerpt: This device has been highly anticipated for a while now, with the PSP being a great gaming device for on the move and Android being such a great OS for mobile devices it was pretty obvous that a Playstation Phone was going to come sooner than later and thankfully Mobile World Congress 2011 was the time it was announced although the worst kept secret in mobile history with leaks starting months before.

  • Summary: I genuinely enjoyed my time reviewing the Xperia Play, not just because it is a good Android phone coupled with Playstation controls, but because Sony Ericsson is innovating in what minimal ways it can when it is dealing with the almost unchangeable form factor of Android devices. As a gamer myself, I see many other people like me being attracted to the Xperia Play because of what it can offer as a phone as well as a portable gaming console.

  • Excerpt: The PlayStation phone is the device equivalent of El Dorado, in that it's spent a long time as a golden fable to trot out when conversation slows. Now the fusion of gamepad and Android phone has emerged into the modern world in the form of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play review

Pocket Lint
1 April 2011
  • Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play could be the stuff of legend: the Holy Grail of the PlayStation phone has been subject to rumour and speculation for many years. With the meteoric rise of mobile gaming, thanks largely to the iPhone , an Android device that grasps gaming literally with both hands was inevitable. But can the Xperia Play break into the mainstream in a way that the PSP Go failed to do?
  • Pros: Gaming pad is well designed, Sony Ericsson's take on Android has some nice features and is easily compensated where it lacks features, battery life when gaming is pretty good
  • Cons: Gaming delivery is a little disparate, screen needs to be brighter, it really needs some exciting gaming titles, video capture is unnecessarily poor
