SONY ERICSON XPERIA PLAYFinally after very long time I think you remember some engage nokia phones we quickly tested this gaming phone with a slide-out gamer keyboard. First thing what I always test it’s the plastic of casing and buttons response versus big touch 4.0-inch LED-backlit LCD screen. It’s very responsive and this is because its uses android platform with first time in mobile industry combine play station one module chipset support HD gaming. And how it’s functioning for time of testing there wasn’t enough game titles on the market to be fully compared to apple gizmos and games but it’s proved to have potential with that PlayStation gaming controls.
But sometimes it’s a little difficult to rest fingers on that controls comfortably. In navigation in menus I still founded some lag even with that 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon processor, but this will be probably fixed in future updates of Sony firmware and android updates from 2.3. Before I restarted device I also try auto focus on the back main camera and it produce nice pictures with that 5 megapixel camera, but flash light is not too much usable outside small rooms. Battery of Xperia Play it’s good but don’t wait longer time of 4 hours if you will gaming with 50% brightness configuration and wifi off. Final words are if you want mini mobile play station phone it’s time to go to shop, but it will be probably best to wait for few months till more games come out and some lagging bugs are removed with updates.
