Assume ideal conditions: Point-blank direct connection to the PS4 (or PS4 connected through Ethernet to high end 5GHz wifi AC router, to which the phone or Vita connects at point-blank).
What's the latency like? I'm madly in love with the Wii U Gamepad, but I tried Moonlight on my PC with an Xperia Z2 and an asus AC68U through 5GHz and the latency is utter unplayable fucking horseshit.
I will buy a PS4 to remote play third party games if it works as latency-free as the Wii U Gamepad.
Also which has the lowest latency, a Vita or one of the Xperia devices?

If you have your WIFI modem in the EXACT same room as your PS4, you might stand a chance at decent play. If you live in a brick house, with the modem in the basement, you are absolutely fucked.
Sony dropped the Vita for a reason, and I would imagine that this is a huge factor. The problem is PSTV has equally bad reception and also seeks your modem before the PS4. Sony was accurate about remote play, but as far as functionality goes, they lied.
I've used it a few times, it's alright, but as mentioned above my modem is in the same room as my Vita and PS4, I also have my PS4 connected through ethernet and a decent internet speed, but it worked just fine for me, played some Bloodborne with no real issues.
If you have any friends with PS4 (assuming you already have a Vita) go demo it with them.
Any chance you could record a short clip showing the picture on your TV and vita simultaneously? Even just going up and down menu options would be enough. I would appreciate it immensely.
I too have have a question, but unfortunately not about remote play.
How well do Vita games run at 1080p when running through the PS TV? From the videos I've seen it basically looks like PS2~ish graphics most of the time. Do they generally consistently run with FPS dips?
1080i, but yeah, I saw from the videos it's just upscaling it. I just don't feel like plunking down over $100 for a Vita when I could get a PSTV for like $30.
Good to know the performance is the same despite the upscaling, thanks for the information regarding that.
I've played a ton of games through remote play on the vita. It runs perfectly when it's directly connected to the ps4. On WiFi it's perfectly fine if you don't have 3 people watching Netflix or streaming in the house. Then it can get quite shoddy. But it runs perfect on 60 fps. Used to play a ton of
Destiny and Bloodborne on it. Never had any problem even through WiFi except for once for about 5 minutes in the whole year that I've used it.
It runs great anon. I haven't had a slight hick up. It runs so good I'm actually annihilating faggots on usf4.
Here you go anon. Sorry for the potato quality.

This is over 2.4 ghz wifi with my router downstairs in another room.
Yeah it's a lot better. This is with 1 person playing CS:GO and another person streaming some videos all on the same network. I have my PS4 up in my bedroom whole I play downstairs in the living room on my vita, sadly the ps4s' WiFi network doesn't reach that far so that's why I'm on my WiFi. It does run a lot smoother downstairs as well.
The remote surprisingly works better on the vita with the ps4 than the wii u with its game pad I could actually walk all around my house with the vita where as with the wii u I had to be within I'd say 20 or so feet or I'd start losing my connection any further and boom disconnected.
It does what it is supposed to do. I mostly use it for rpgs and other things that aren't needing twitch response times and its fine.
Sony Android phones can also remote play with a real PS4 controller. The apk was hacked so any phone can use it.
