Stop apologizing for Sony mistakes
My next phone will be an iPhone. Definitely. Games are better, apps are better looking, and Apple will support your phone with updates for YEARS.
The first iPhone stopped updates only on 3.1 I think, so it supported 3 MAJOR versions, while Android phones barely can handle one.
Stop apologizing Sony behavior, you are being just Sony puppets. The thing is, Sony *PROMISED* ICS, and a lot of people, including me, bought the Play because of it. And now they came and say, sorry, but Android game developers don't want to fix their games on the phone, so no ICS for you guys.
And about the performance, yes, you can have good performance on Xperia Play with ICS, but due limited RAM, you have to remove all Sony bloatware, something they apparently doesn't want to give up.
