    In terms of the hardware that makes the wheels go round, the Xperia Play relies on a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon chip, which comes with an Adreno 205 GPU. Neither is a slouch, but it\'s obvious that more could, and perhaps should, have been included in this bargain. Looking around at the spring / summertime smartphone landscape, a potential Play buyer will be confronted by Motorola\'s Atrix and Droid Bionic, LG\'s Optimus 2X and Optimus 3D, ...

    Smartphones with slide out keyboards are not unusual. But the same can`t be said about a smartphone with a slide out gaming controller. The Sony Xperia PLAY (aka the Playstation Phone) from Sony Ericsson and Verizon Wireless is an Android powered......

    Pros: Controller makes this phone feel like a dedicated gaming device ; Nice camera ; Great sound quality

    Cons: Volume button placement not optimal ; Controller doesn`t work with all games ; Display could be brighter ; Notification LED oddly placed

    Verdict: With its 1GHz processor, this phone is as snappy as my Droid X as far as scrolling through apps, launching apps, etc. Battery life seems to be on par with other 1GHz phones Iu2019ve reviewed. That means you will want to charge it every night if you a...

    With video gaming a sport in its own right, smartphones have no other choice but raise their game too. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play has strong ties to Sony?s gaming rigs, both portable and not, and Sony?s a big name in gaming. So, what does all this pedigree bring? Games from the original PlayStation for one, with PlayStation 2 titles coming in the near future. The PlayStation Pocket game store comes with 50 games at launch optimized for the Pla...

    Verdict: Let?s get one thing straight here. The XPERIA Play is a gaming droid and you shouldn?t get hung up on the less than stellar video and single-core-only CPU. It wasn?t meant to be the flagship in the XPERIA lineup ? it?s up to the Arc to shoulder the r...

    Can we say beginning of an era about the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play? In case you are wondering why, it is the first ever smartphone with a dedicated gamepad. Sure, its chipset is not the most powerful there is, and its screen is not with the best......
