The headline may come as a shock to some but it’s true. It seems in an effort to make a great gaming phone, Sony Ericsson forgot to add some basic features in the Xperia PLAY that are expected in a phone that costs as much as it does.
Thankfully, the error has been corrected and after the latest firmware update, the Xperia PLAY is now capable of recording videos in 720p resolution, that too with continuous auto-focus. You will also be able to get the option toggle the automatic display brightness option from the settings menu. Interestingly, this second option is absent from the latest 2.3.4 update on both the Xperia arc as well as the Xperia neo.
Unless you are too busy gaming on your Xperia PLAY, we would recommend you to update your device to the latest firmware.
