Default New Housing

I just wanted to show the community my Xperia Play, I had it for about 2 years before I dropped it on my bed and the screen cracked. Shortly afterward the main flex cable broke. So rather then trashing the phone I spent about 50 dollar to make it look and function brand new.

BTW it's not a Verizon AT&T I just chose the case because I liked how orange looks Also I don't think I've ever heard of anyone here that has an Orange Xperia Play

There were two additional colors for the UK market. A white and an orange coloring. And if your a Minecraft fan, they released a limited only Minecraft edition:





But yeah, your PLAY is looking good. I sold my VZ model last year and bought a prototype model.. that is now been replaced by a Nexus 5. I don't have the heart to sell my PLAY though.

Awesome

Where did you get a prototype model? How is it different from a regular r800i (or a)?

Its an early AT&T model. With the standard all black and silver. Zero carrier branding. Bought it on eBay a year ago for $125 to use on T-Mobile. It came Sim unlocked and boot loader unlocked

I've also bought a Nexus 5 after a along use of the Xperia Play. Are there any hardware differences on the prototype model?

None that I could find after one year of use on that play ( almost 3 years total on a XP). Its just for geekness that I bought it. Another user here at one point had a xp proto from att but it was 4 weeks newer then mine. He had a slew of issues with hardware and software. Guessing its die to whatever att was doing with it from when mine was made to when his was made. But mine works perfectly. And works just like everyone else's again except for the prototype labeling. Plus at $125 it was a good price at the time and look almost brand new.
