How to fix Play Store on Sony Xperia smartphones

If you've just bought a Sony Xperia smartphone and found thay your Play Store is blank, it's not your fault. This is a known bug, and thankfully there's a way around it.

Smartphones may be highly useful devices, but remove the usual way to get your favorite apps and things get trickier. If your Sony Xperia is showing you a blank Google Play, here's what you have to do.
  1. Reset and wipe your smartphone to it's factory settings
  2. Proceed with the initial setup as usual - but skip the step where it asks you to enter your Google account 
  3. After the initial setup is completed, head into the Play Store, and only then enter your Google Account info

And that's it. You should now have full access to Google Play, as expected. It's a bit awkward to have to wipe your smartphone just to get it to work properly, but considering you probably haven't installed anything else (you had no Google Play access after all) it shouldn't be that much of an hassle.
