Excerpt: "...If you have owned a Sony Ericsson phone in the last 3 Years, you will know that their cameras are amazing. Although this only has a 5MP camera, the images were still very sharp, bright and clear and video playback worked very well also. The back of the phone looks very stylish, with a pure white rear casing and two nicely placed chrome strips along each side of the unit. As most phones do now, the Xperia Play has a headphone jack on the side so you ...
Pros: Looks and feels great, everything operates perfectly .
Cons: R1 buttons are a bit annoying but nothing I cant handle .
Summary: As an Android-loving user who had a Xperia Play for 5 or 6 months, I am starting to lose my temper to be honest. The system (Android) is excellent, yes, and will be upgraded to Android 4.0.3 by Sony Ecrisson by May/June. However the Sony Ecrisson's phone data system is a horrid. It is not even 5 or 6 months old yet, it freezes a lot. I haven't even used up the memory yet. I was forced to remove the pre-installed games so it would lessen the "freeze spikes".
Pros: PlayStation Store, Android Markets and the PlayStation Phone design
Cons: Freezes for a lot of times and it is not even 5/6 months old yet.
Summary: A Sony rep brought one of these in to work the other day. I was surprised to find that it is a massive improvement over last year's Xperia X10. Will definitely be a popular seller when it launches.
Pros: Stylish. Android 2.3. Awesome gaming experience for a mobile device.
Cons: Could do with a better display and higher resolution camera.
Summary: It doesn't seem too chunky. Certainly not more chunky than the Nokia N97... But, if you remember the ancient Nokia N-Gage, which offered once-cool (and even at its release) retro/legacy titles... It didn't do so well... I certainly won't be hopping on the pre-order bandwagon of the Xperia Play. But a fun Android device might just win me over... Good luck Sony!
