Does anyone here have a Sony Xperia Play?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
What are your opinions on the phone?

My 3GS is due for upgrade and I'm thinking about getting that, the Galaxy S II or an iPhone 4.

I would have snapped up an Atrix but they are not available with my network.

Wait for them to mature a bit, all this is new and sony don't have the best history in the android marketplace. tbh you can't go wrong with any newish HTC or samsung (as long as you don't mind the cheap feel, be prepared to do some hacking to get it running well too).

LG optimus 2x. Great phone, root it and just enjoy the speed. I'm starting to love it more and more every day.

Is rooting the equivalent to jail breaking?

Im not interested in overclocking my phone or messing about with it on any way. If it ist any good out of the box ten I'm unfortunately not interested in it.

I cant be bothered with doing the manufacturers work for them when I'm paying £500 for a handset.

Yeah, more dangerous (only if you do something stupid, not unbrickable like iphones/ipods. Otherwise the chance is next to zero).

Unfortunately I don't know much about it, but if its anything like sonys previous phones you should stay the hell away. If you want to stay stock, go HTC(or one of googles nexus phones). tbh the rest are terrible

Rooting is similar to jailbreaking and provides more control over the phone.

Get some other phone, keep away from the Xperia Play. Alot of good phones could be had at that price range.

No, rooting is a bit more extreme than jailbreaking. Most of the changes you can do on jailbroken ios can be done without rooting on Android. Rooting is pretty safe as well. But for a phone I would hunt for a LG optimus 2x or an iPhone 4.

I've rooted my Xperia X10 Mini Pro countless times and only once did i do it wrong and totally mess up my android os..

Quick format using the PC Companion (tool Sony provide) fixed it. It's pretty difficult to brick a phone and there's always a few ways to remedy it should you do so.

Sadly the x10 mini pro isn't the handset i really wanted, and is a bit too small for my needs. Sony's new lineup of Xperia models interest me though, especially the "Xperia Mini". i think they're onto winners with that and the "Mini pro" *note no x10 in their names*

Apparently due out Q3 2011, currently no price announced but i suspect a small fortune.
