Share us your experiences if you have owned the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY.
The Xperia PLAY is my first Android smartphone, it is designed to act as a smartphone with built in controls to play games.This unique convenient design saves you from carrying around a fat bluetooth controller and connecting it all the time. I don't play games on phones anymore due to this reason, it's overwhelming and goofy for a phone.
Unfortunately, the Xperia PLAY was already outdated during its launch in 2011. It had a Single Core 1GHz Processor, 512MB and 400MB Storage, yes you heard it 400MB. The SD card is the solution for this mess.
But it didn't stop it being a great phone, you can play some Android games well and emulators such as PS1, N64, GBA, DS, SNES and some PSP games. You can't play some heavy or modern games like GTA that well.
It isn't that great for everyday use in 2018 but still gets the job done for what I need. I only use smartphones for YouTube, Googling and Facebook and never use apps for those, just browser. I also do this on high end phones too, for simplicity and battery saving.
Sadly, there has never been a successor or any android based phone like the Xperia PLAY. Updated hardware would be great.
Have a good day Gentlemen.
