Sony’s worst kept secret Xperia Play yesterday got in the hands of folks over Engadget. They did a detailed preview of this gaming smartphone, which is expected to be announced at the upcoming Mobile World Congress.
Snippets from the preview:
Xperia Play’s screen is powered by a Bravia engine for improved video playback.
The only other real build quality issue lies on the glossy battery door itself — it’s very flimsy, so removal requires popping up one end of the door, and then running our fingernail along the seam.
We’ve been using this Xperia Play as our main phone for a few days now, and to our surprise, it’s been very snappy and fairly stable for the majority of the time — we’ve only seen one reboot max per day, and removing the resource-intensive Timescape widget certainly helps, too.
The camera produces sharp pictures, vibrant colors (although red might be a bit strong), and fine macro shots.
