Verified Purchase
I bought this phone because it was less than $200 unlocked. Unfortunately i did not investigate to find out that it does not support AT&T's 3G network. The R800a does but this is the R800i. Anyway, i like the phone (and especially Android) so much i have abandoned my iPhone 4. it does need some memory management, but it is truly unlocked. I can do everything i want with the phone and do not even see a need to root it right now. The playstation games are ok, nothing special and the joysticks (touchpads) are kind of weird. i prefer the d-pad. not many games work with it and to be honest i rarely slide it open. Now that i like android, ill be looking for a faster phone (dual core, 1G RAM or higher, and some other nice features). The screen is dim (everyone notices this) and it is hard to see in sunlight. The speakers are AMAZING. speaker phone is the best i have heard so far on a phone and playing music sounds like it is coming from a laptop with a nice soundcard. Just got update today for Android 2.3.3. The experience with Sony Ericcson PC Companion was not the greatest but it was bearable. I am glad to be off iTunes and the frequent jailbreaking (including app searchingn in Cydia). If you get an android consider Chomp Sms and Swype. These two programs will keep me an Android customer. The responsiveness of the Play is quick but i have noticed some lag, which seems to come from specific apps. I stopped using those apps and the lag/screen-freezing went away. Overall this is a nice phone but not worth anymore than $400. also, make sure this phone is supported by your carrier. I am currently running on AT&T's Edge network because i failed to pay attention to the product info. Oh, and the battery life is pretty decent. I am a frequent user and my battery typically lasts a full day at work and may even carry me a full day without needing a charge.

I recently got the Xperia Play. The phone itself is great, clear pictures, nice signal, operating system is quite stable.

As you may imagine be careful about battery life and get used to carry with you a portable battery charger.

If we think about it, the whole idea of this phone may be for people who travel a lot or have to wait a lot. I parked my car in front of my girlfriend house, while I wait I take out my phone and play for a little while (1 hour).

Send a couple of text messages, get some phone calls and charge your phone. The Xperia play itself is great, just I wish battery was better. Instead carrying my cellphone and my PSP. Now I need to carry my phone and a portable charger.

I've fiddled around with this phone before and it is great. Its surprisingly strong and durable. The UI is smooth little bugs here and there but nothing patches couldn't fix up. There's plenty SE can do to build on top of this, personally, I'd recommend holding off on this device because I'm more than sure there will be a successor to this device soon with upgraded hardware. Because that's all it really needs is a faster CPU, more internal storage, a stronger camera (front and back), and some more RAM wont hurt at all. Otherwise this is a great first go at our (the gamers) dream of a gaming smartphone that can compete with other smart phones to make it worth a 2 year contract. But, that's all I'd buy this phone with is for a contract or retail price that is a lot lower than this. I'm sorry but NO phone on the market is worth 660 bucks. Not even more than 550. Remember, this is a phone, not a laptop. But if you've got 750 bucks to blow off then sure I would get this phone. But i don't, so I'll wait for the successor. :-) thanks SE for at least making the PSP phone a reality!

Let's be real: the XP was outdated when it launched. It had a processor that was already old, a LAUGHABLE AND ETERNALLY PROBLEMATIC 400 megabytes of internal memory, a subpar screen, and boring, plasticky construction and styling.

BUT IT HAS CONTROLS. Glorious, real, reasonably comfortable controls. And it runs Android, so you can play all your classic games on a plethora of constantly improving emulators, such as Retroarch. I have used a $50 used Xperia Play as my phone for a year now and have relatively few complaints about its daily duties as a phone while I have enjoyed its use as an emulation machine very much. Like I said, it has many faults, but it is a perfectly adequate Android phone which has the amazingly unique bonus of gaming controls. People are pretty wowed when you open up your XP; either because it's the coolest thing they've ever seen, or you're the biggest goddamn geek they'll ever know for actually owning something like this. The speakers are quite nice as others have mentioned.

Full speed SNES, PS1, GBA, GB, TurboGFX, NES, Arcade, DOS PC, and more emulation awaits you with full controls.

Shame on Sony for abandoning the Jellybean upgrade for this phone. They like many companies are happy to lie and lie and lie to consumers about future upgrades.

The Flex cable is supposed to be an issue with the XP's construction, so open and close your unit gently.

have been playing video games since I could hold a regular NES controller in my hands. When smart phone's first came out there was no way I was going to purchase one when my psp could do everything they could, and had quality games for it. Finally I have the best of both worlds despite what another review on amazon states. The phone works great it is loud and clear. The phone doesn't come with a really great line up of games unless your a sims fan, but it comes with perfect controls to fit all the wonderful apps. Through the android market you can find a emulator for the playstation 1, GBA, SNES, N64, ATARAI, NES, GBC, and many more. Despite the playstaion network not being on this phone through the emulators it is really easy to play all your favorite games that you already own through the emulators. I have nothing negative to say about this phone. Its not the most advanced smartphone available, but its hands down the best gaming phone available. If only the playstation Vita would double as a phone. AS ALWAYS DO NOT DOWNLOAD A ROM FOR A GAME YOU DO NOT ALREADY OWN THAT IS PIRATING.
