Just recently, as in April 2011, Sony launched it’s much hyped Sony Ericsson Xperia range of phones which includes the Arc, X10 and the Xperia Play or better known as Xplay. This post is a review of Sony’s Xplay. Xplay is a one of its kind phone with an impressive design and innovative features. This phone is PlayStation certified and can play games with graphics as good as the PSP.
Lets have a look at this phone’s features.
The Sony Ericsson Xplay has an impressive PSP type design, as you can see in the above image, it is a slider phone. The Xplay has Android 2.3(Gingerbread) OS which is efficiently integrated with the PlayStation Suite. On the portability side this phone is a bit bulky and has dimensions 119X62X16mm and weighs somewhere around175g. It’s screen size is also impressive and watching movies on this phone is sheer pleasure.
With 512 MB RAM and Snapdragon system on ship this phone offers a good speed and is very efficient. It is available in 2 colors and they are black and white. Xplay has a 1 GHz Scorpion Processor with Andreno 205 GPU which makes it more efficient to use and promises a good experience.
The camera is a 5 megapixel autofocus with LED flashlight. Record Videos in WVGA and also has a secondary VGA camera on the front side. The camera menu is also user friendly and we can easily switch to the front cam from the rear one or vice-versa.
With features like 3G, Wi-fi, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP, GPRS, EDGE and many more this phone is a complete package! The battery life is also impressive with 425 hours of standby in 2G and 413 hours in 3G. Talk time upto 8h 25 minutes in 2G and 6h 25 minutes in 3G. Xplay has internal memory of 400 MB and can be expanded upto 32 GB. An 8 GB memory card is included with the phone.
The main feature of this phone is its gaming side. Till date this is the best gaming phone after the ‘N-Gage’ era. It has some cool pre-loaded games like FIFA 10, Sims 3 and Bruce Lee(which is almost like Street Fighter) and you can download more from the internet. Games like Asphalt 6 HD can be played with the play panel which can be accessed by sliding the phone. Also Assassin’s Creed offers the best graphics on this phone. What else does a gamer want?
The phone is priced at Rs. 35,000 MRP and in dollars it is approximately 777$. So, if you have that money to spare on a phone then this is the best choice. As a reviewer we should also mention its downsides. So, if you compare this with the E7 you will find the only downsides are that it does not have a HDMI port and does not support HD video recording. But if you see it this way, the Android market has millions of applications compared to the thousands or may be hundreds of that of OVI store. So, Android is any day better than Nokia.
And now you can also enjoy GTA III on this phone PSP style!
Have a nice day!

All of us know about the famous GTA series and most of us have played all of them. But there are some really interesting facts about each of them which barely few of us know. So, here we share a secret about the last mission of the game GTA Vice City.
The last mission of GTA Vice City was ‘Keep your friends close…..’. Now the interesting thing is that the named of the mission was derived from a famous dialogue from the movie ‘The Godfather Part II’ starring Al Pacino as the lead playing Michael Corleone. In the movie Michael Corleone’s dialogue goes as follows: ‘There are many things my father taught me here in this room. He taught me:keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.’. So, this is how the name of the mission was derived. It holds true for the mission.
The next in the mission was the plot resembles the scene from Scarface wherein Tony Montana fights in his Mansion. In this mission too Tommy Vercetti, the protagonist of the game, goes to that Mansion on Starfish Island and fight with a gang of people. The only difference is that in the movie Tony Montana dies whereas in Vice City Tommy survives.The hit game GTA Vice City also has an area with the famous bloody bathroom in an empty apartment, along with a chainsaw that can be used as a weapon. The Malibu Club is also very similar to the Babylon Club in the movie. Other similarities include a drugs deal that goes wrong, a mission to kill a cocaine-dealing boss similar to Tony and Manny’s killing of Frank, and a mansion featuring an office and hall very similar to those of Tony’s mansion in the movie. Furthermore, the protagonist Tommy Vercetti is heavily based upon Tony Montana. The final mission in which Tommy must fend off dozens of armed men as they storm the mansion parallels the bloodbath ending in the film.
Al Pacino, the versatile actor, starred in both these films. Links to the wiki pages of both the films are:
1. Scarface- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scarface_(1983_film)
2. Godfather Part II- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godfather_Part_II
Thus this is the truth behind the last mission in Vice City.
Hope you enjoyed reading.
