I disagree with the statement of xperia play. I had one from release and just barely replaced it with a note 3. I loved the hell out of those things. Anyone with half a brain could get emulators/roms which essentially made it a PSP with phone capabilities. Had they made an experia play 2, with comparable specs to the note 3, I would have bought that without a second thought. That said, I love my note 3, and have Emulators on that, and linked my PS3 remote to it, so that's pretty cool. Bias story by a bias columnist.
