CTIA Wireless: Hands-on with the Xperia Play

Xperia Play

Starting with the 5-megapixel camera, there isn't much out of the ordinary here. Users can toggle between still and video shooting. There is a flash available for dark settings and the capture speed is nearly instant. Definitely faster to focus than when using my iPhone 4. However, the quality isn't exactly on par.

One of the helpful features is that the touch screen controls do rotate with the screen when held in either landscape or portrait mode. Otherwise, don't chuck your point-and-shoot just yet.
