Look No Further

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is an absolute top of the line device. I use this phone for everything. Between playing Playstation quality games from my cell phone, including a selection of classic ROMS from the PSOne library, I also am able to get the full benefits of Android 2.3, including Google eBooks, full push webmail integration and the best browser on a cell phone, period. The display on the phone is beautiful, and is capable of showing HD video and even handles fairly well in direct sunlight. The speakers are louder than the speakers on my computer, which gamers have come to expect when we play our games, which also makes listening to music an absolute pleasure. The front facing camera makes video chat and decent profile snapshots easier than ever. And, of course, the ability to use my phone as a mobile WiFi hotspot means I'm never without my web access. This is the absolute best phone I have ever owned.

good phone but phone storage space fills up quickly because a lot apps can only be on your phone storage.
