Summary: I've owned the Xperia Play since August 2012. It's my first Android phone and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Sure you have to balance the memory but keeping 77mb clear is no problem/insert 32GB micro SD for everything stored and voila/problem solved. Runs smooth as glass the S2/Adreno 205 set does excellent on this phone. I bought this unit on ebay after Verizon stopped carrying the Xperia Play in Nov. 2012.
This Smart phone is very nice for Gaming people. and is Cheaper!

Summary: SONY ERICSSON R800 The Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, as the name suggests, is a phone that has dedicated itself to quality gaming. The Xperia PLAY is a touchscreen phone with a slider that opens up PSP like gaming controls. This phone comes loaded with Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1 GHz processor.
Summary: Nice toy. The hardware is weak a bit for nowadays, but still do the job. My daughter is very happy with it. If you're looking for a "pure" smartphone - consider buying an advanced "china-phone" for this price. But if you want to get all-on-one smartphone+game console - this is the right choice, IMHO.
Excerpt: I traded my iPhone 4 for this phone, looking for something know. Worst mistake I have ever made. It seems cool at first, and the gaming is fun, but it leaves much to be desired. It is very heavy and bulky, making it VERY uncomfortable to keep in your pocket. I've read everywhere that it has had great battery life, but for me that was the worst part. Replaced the battery, and it still wouldn't come close to lasting throughout the day, even after underclocking the CPU.
Summary: Buy this telephone because it is a very good option with all his functions and easy managing, it is a highly advisable telephone,It is very cheap and very complete, has good options like that great as programs,It has very good receipt.
