Sony Xperia Ion Review

20 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Xperia Ion is not a bad handset, but it does feel about six months old. This is likely because it was first shown in January at the Consumer Electronics Show. Many things have changed since then, but the processor and operating system on the Ion have not.
  • Pros: Cheap $100 price, Top-notch specs, 12-megapixel camera, 4G LTE connectivity
  • Cons: Camera autofocus is slow, Navigation buttons unresponsive, Scratchable screen, Runs old version (2.3) of Android, Outdated processor compared to competitors, USB port cover is cumbersome

GSM Arena
10 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Let's be honest here - Sony missed a great opportunity with the Xperia ion for AT&T. Had the device hit the shelves shortly after its announcement, it would have enjoyed a flagship status and a higher price tag, along with the potential for selling in significant numbers.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support, Tri-band 3G with 21Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, Category 3 LTE network connectivity, 4.6" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine; Scratch-resistant glass, Dual-core 1.5 GHz Scorpio...
  • Cons: Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread out of the box doesn't cut it for a high-end device this far into 2012, Display has sub-par side viewing angles, Underwhelming front touch buttons and side camera key, Non-user replaceable battery

All Things Digital
