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...
Pros: Great gaming controls, good call quality and reception.
Excerpt: Rumors of a “PlayStation phone” — most likely borne of wishful thinking more than anything else, especially early on — have been lingering for almost as long as I’ve been writing about gadgets and games. So to say the Xperia Play is a long time coming is something of an understatement.
Pros: Android 2.3 largely untouched, Gamepad is snappy, Crash Bandicoot is still addictive
Cons: Bulky, Menu navigation stutters, PlayStation Suite needs work
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.
Pros: Great gaming controller, sharp display, excellent speakers, atttractive and solid build.
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.

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...
Conclusion: Sony Ericsson Xperia Play to wyjątkowo ciekawy mariaż smartfona i konsoli do gier. Z całą pewnością spodoba się osobom, które chcą znowu zagrać w kultowe tytuły powstałe na konsolę Sony Playstation takie jak chociażby Crash Bandicoot.
Pros: Playstation, Wbudowany pad, Długi czas pracy na baterii
Conclusion: Det heter seg at det beste kameraet er det du alltid har med deg. Som spillere kan vi kanskje si at det samme gjelder for spillkonsoller? I så måte er en hybrid av en smarttelefon og en håndkonsoll midt i blinken.
Pros: Gamepad, mange spill, siste versjon av Android; 2.3 Gingerbread, god nettleser, Playstation Suite
Cons: Elendig skjerm, høy pris, billige materialer, ingen PSN-integrasjon, ingen mini-HDMI, lyd, ingen HD-video, dårlig batteritid, få "stortitler"
