5. Bluetooth

Bluetooth support is an incredible feature on any phone. Not only can you wirelessly connect to a hands-free headset, but several newer cars even let you connect right to their dashboards so you can make calls on the go without ever having to take your hands off the wheel. It’s both functional and safe.

But the implications are even more exciting for gamers. Many game controllers use Bluetooth to connect to their consoles, and the PS3’s DualShock 3 is no exception. With the Xperia™ PLAY 4G, controlling your mobile games with a DualShock controller is just a driver download away.

4. PlayStation Suite

The Xperia™ PLAY 4G comes with the PlayStation Suite preinstalled, giving you access to several classic PlayStation exclusive titles in the palm of your hand. And these titles are PlayStation® Certified, so you can rest assured they’ll run smoothly and without hassle. Don’t settle for PlayStation emulators, which have no performance guarantee and aren’t even legal in several cases. PlayStation Suite is the only way to get supported, certified PSOne titles on your phone.

3. 4G

When you take your games online, connection speed can easily make or break the experience. As its name suggests, the Xperia™ PLAY 4G uses 4G wireless internet, which can provide six to ten times the speed of 3G. Don’t put up with a lowered KDR or a lackluster online experience due to lag; get an Xperia™ PLAY 4G.

2. The Games

The Xperia™ PLAY 4G comes preloaded with such title as Madden NFL 11, The Sims 3, Dungeon Defenders, and other great titles. And this just gives you a small taste of the 150 PLAY-optimized titles available for download and purchase through the “Get Games” recommendation screen, easily accessible when you slide open the Xperia™ PLAY’s game controller. To sweeten the pot, from now until January 15th 2012, Xperia™ PLAY users can download four free games from EA, including Battlefield Bad Company 2, Dead Space, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, and Need for Speed SHIFT.

And that’s not even taking into consideration the Android Market and PlayStation Suite we’ve already mentioned. Also, when you have access to one of the most popular indie games ever made, Minecraft, right on your smartphone, it’s pretty hard to complain.
