I like the ibenx better though id never buy either. The Ipega looks like it has a smaller screen and I don't like the awkward shape of it. But I wouldn't replace my play with either of those. Though I would if they made a phone like the party but with analog sticks like the vita instead of touch pads. It seems like these gaming tablets are popping up all over the place noire we just need to find the best one

Same here, I like the iBenx by design and usability.

Wow, nice try. But, the Xperia Play concept still is the King of the Gaming Phone for me. Awake, Sony! Go Go, release the Xperia Play II =D

I just ordered a JXD s7800B last week. Seemed like the best choice given what's out right now. I have no clue when I'll get it since there's no real info about an actual release date. I'm hoping sometime late next week, but we'll see. I'll try to post a video review when I get my hands on it and have some time to mess with it. Here's hoping it rules!

Great choice bro. :good: Do let me know how's the peformance and battery life when you get it. I'm really looking forward to your review. My only worries are whether they will release the codings or not haha as I'm quite fond with custom roms and kernels. It's very interesting to explore new possibilities after all.

Just wanted everyone to know that some videos were posted of the JXD s7800A (the weaker one), and it looks so freaking awesome. It seems to handle everything very well, and this is the weaker model. The device also goes portrait view no problem, which is totally sweet. Check this forum post http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/jxd-s7800-quad-core-will-be-released!/ to see some vids of emulation, the unboxing, and some nice photos of the device. I bought my s7800B a few weeks ago, and apparently it's delayed, which sucks, but I'm willing to wait since this thing is going to rule so much. Enjoy! I'm stoked to get mine!

The thing about the Xperia Play, is that it could switch from phone to PSP in a matter of seconds. These "Alternatives" are just android devices that were made for gaming, but do you really see yourself having a conversation with one of these things?

Yeah. The killer feature in the XP for me is that, when you hide the gamepad it's a smartphone like any other.
I don't see myself with a gamepad or handheld console style device as smartphone.

Some company should make something similar to the XP. I can't understand why there's nothing similar with so many Android devices released around the world and even an increasing number of Android gaming devices.

Couldn't agree more. xplay has been my one and only phone/gaming device. I could never see myself playing games using a touch screen. It's downright stupid. With all these andoird gaming devices I just cant see why none of em has tried to make a phone/gaming hybrid like the xplay.

    So earlier this week I bought a Xiaomi Mi-1s on eBay. Xiaomi is the company that created the Miui from android. So I have been playing with this phone. It is way more powerful then the Play. I loaded up the same game and thebacreen on the mew phone is so much brighter and sharper. High and bright colors. Never mind the CPU/gpu. Bit anyways tried to play the game on the touchacreen and instantly remembered how much I hate touchscreen. So I loaded up. A moga game. MC4 to be exact. But then I realize how horrible and a pita it is to use android carry the moga controller. Also the moga kept disconnecting and them would not reconnect. So just to setup to play a game with touchsreen is terrible. The Play. Load the game slide out the controls and play. Easy as that. No additional steps or seperate device require. Needless to say I will be selling the Xiaomi phone. Or perhaps. I will sell my wife's phone and give her this phone as it is a Chinese phone imported here.

    So again. Of you game and don't want to deal with Bluetooth devices that wont work. The Play is still the best option 2+ years later.

    Okay so I'm getting my Much i5s tomorrow!
    Anybody who's got this phone give me any tips of what I should do first to set it up? is it gonna be already in english or do i need to go into settings etc.

    I'll record both my PLAY and MUCHi5s playing games and that later tomorrow and upload them then for comparisons for people, any games you want me to play for you say now so I can sort that out asap ^^

    I'm agree with you %100

    i put my post before ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2440381&page=2 post #19 ) reading your comments here and found out how much your opinion is same as me :highfive:

    xperia play is still the one ! me , same as you , can't use MOGA or any other external gamepad (( specially on my office !!! ))
    the best phone for game is a phone with a hidden dedicated gamepad

    i hope someday sony or samsung or any other famous brand produce that

    edit :
    I NEVER TRUST CHINESE COMPANIES

    90+% of the worlds products are made in China, the PLAY was made in China. And just becuase its not a Sony or Samsung doesnt mean its automatically garbage. In fact this phone is extremely well built, the Xiaomi Mi-1S. I am very impressed with it. And I wasnt saying it was junk, just saying that if I want to play games the PLAY is the way to go.

    So again, not saying everything made in CH is good but very few items now a days are not made in China.

    All major manufactures use China to build their products.


    Edit - My wife was born in China. They made her pretty good.... lol.
