In addition to offering an enhanced gaming experience, the Xperia is a solid Android handset with an acceptable camera, decent call quality, and good battery life.

Tech2
30 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. But I’m sure after the preview ; most of you are probably waiting to see if it actually does just that. So after a full week of gaming and testing here’s a more in depth look at the Xperia Play aka the Playstation Phone.

  • Conclusion: Gaming enthusiast will no doubt love the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY 4G as it’s a suitable gaming device that intricately presents us with a fantastic gaming experience. Add the lovable elements of any Android smartphone, we essentially have something that’ll keep us preoccupied during some down time. However, the best thing going for the handset is the $49.99 on-contract price it’s flaunting, which packs a lot of value for the buck.
  • Pros: $50 cost, Great gaming experience
  • Cons: Lacks detail with its photos, No 720p video capture

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Review (hardware)

Gamers Daily News
16 June 2011
  • Summary: A very cool piece of technology for gaming and Internet. Less useful for texting and the call quality is poor, along with the price when you total it all up. Hopefully, this won’t turn into another iPhone that’s only available on Verizon for years and then on AT&T (which is far worse in my opinion) and eternally over-priced because as you can see, there are far better options for service.

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

  • 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...

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.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play - The smartphone, and the portable gaming console

thinkdigit.com
26 May 2011
  • Summary: A smartphone and portable gaming console combined? That’s great news for the gamers! However, if you look at its capabilities beyond gaming, it is hard to feel excitement for the Xperia Play. The phone has okay performance, a bulky form factor, a disappointing battery and a handicapped camera. The lack of 720p HD video recording capabilities is a glaring omission.
  • Pros: Gaming console capabilities are fun, Good display, Comfortable gaming pad, with good button placement, On-screen keypad is comfortable, Android 2.3 preinstalled; no pushing and shoving for upgrades
  • Cons: Extremely bulky form factor, No 720p HD video recording capability, Bad battery life
