    Just got in the new Xperia Play to test out for a couple of weeks. After using it for just 30 minutes I can honestly say Sony did a great job with this phone and it should be labeled as the phone for gamers.

    I'll follow up with more after I get some more hands time on it! dancedroid

    I picked one up this morning and overall I think it is a great phone. I was still within my 14 days so I took my commando in and swapped for the xperia play. I think im going to miss the whole rugged thing because im in the military and I'm a little afraid that I might break this one so I might be going back in to swap back out for the commando. The play is a great phone I just dont want to see it fall vuctim to a brutal drop or water I dont know what I will do yet I only got a couple more days left until my 14 days are over. But the phone is great I definately would recommend getting this device if you are a moderate to heavy gamer

    So anyone here have comments on battery life? I am used to not needing to worry about the battery life with the OG Droid.

    With a gaming device like this, and many long summer trips ahead I am concerned that it will drain fast and be pretty much useless as a gaming device and phone.

    Not sure what you mean by not having to worry about OG Droid battery life. I just upgraded from the OG Droid, having been Stock and Rooted back and forward in addition to getting a refurbished one from warranty. This phone's battery life is phenomenal compared to the life I was getting out of my OG Droid. That being 50% battery gone after half an hour of Angry Birds which was already lagging when ads were displayed. I managed to beat the entire first island in Crash Bandicoot on this phone (about 30 mins as well) and was at about 90%. Only thing that effects my battery life severely is when I'm roaming and my phone struggles with signal.

    Just picked mine up yesterday when my brother picked up the thunderbolt and I'd have to say this thing is amazing. My battery lasts way longer even with his extended battery and I was playing several games for hours on end. He just has a bigger screen (big woop) and a better UI. I can't wait to get a developing comunuity behind the things so I can flash a new rom and customize this thing into my unique xperia play. dancedroid:icon_ banana:
