Hi guys anybody have any idea about a really good case for the play? I have tried two so far and although the back of the case is fine the front section on both were rubbish and if id not had a skinomi screen protector (which are absolutely awesome btw and something that i would recommend to everyone) they would have scratched the hell out of the screen (the skinomi and its ridiculous self healing shield thing have thankfully stopped this from happening). so are there any good cases out there? was specifically looking for a jelly one as I think they seem to offer the best protection but can't find one! also are the wallet cases any good?

cheers guys

I don't think you would have scratched the screen you might have scratched the crappy plastic outer cover.

If you take that off (You can use a pin carefully away from the part of the screen you look at and peel it off).

Won't scratch - the pin won't even mark it - neither will a car key.

(Apparently it does make it more likely to shatter but with it off you could use a higher quality protector and get rid of the glare).

I would quite like some input on this. I got my son the white one from Phones 4 U, and just got a dock from Amazon, would be good to have one that works

with the dock, without having to remove it!

Thanks

I had the same problem (Seller even listed it as genuine Sony Ericsson which presumably would work.)

I've bought myself a flip case (from Hong Kong) The reason why I've not bought a silicone case is because in the past I've had experience with silicone cases and slidy phones. The thing connecting the two parts of the case tend to break off after a while; basically destroying your protection.

Here's what I've bought for this device(The device is still yet to come though!) - For the purposes of people viewing this thread in 90+ days time, Ill also put the title of the product, so that you can search for it on eBay

Black Flip Leather Pouch Case Cover for SONY ERICSSON XPERIA PLAY £1.56

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/220877413256?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_2654wt_932

10 LCD SCREEN PROTECTORS FOR SONY ERICSSON XPERIA PLAY £0.99

Bear in mind that these prices may change, and you may no longer get value for money, so you may have to alter your search terms slightly

Well, it seems to be the only one that "works" with this phone. I've had slidy phones in the past (Long before android) and I tell you when using crystal or silicone cases on them, you're wasting your money because they'll break quickly due to using the product's slidy mechanism

At any rate, I've also bought one of these (my HK flip thing has yet to arrive)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/230708020803?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_2523wt_960

Item number:

230708020803

from ADVERTISING SPAM:

http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/prepaymania_shop/?_trksid=p4340.l2559

(They dont have it on their own site for some weird reason)

Title:

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Black Jelly Skin Case Cover

Cost: £1.99

^ A lot of the above is for the benefit of members who see this post in the future and can see what to search for. Oh, and the Xperia Play comes with a screen protector but it doesn't hurt to buy some more - especially when you get 10 for 99p
