Sony Xperia ion review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: It's been over five months since we first saw Sony's Xperia ion for AT&T, an Android device with LTE and a lot to prove. The Xperia line hasn't had much success here in the US, thanks in no small part to delayed launches and underwhelming hardware. The Xperia ion continues that late-launch trend, but the hardware has specs that indicate that Sony is aiming a little higher than your standard mid-range Android phone, including a 720p display, 12-megapixel camera, and the...
  • Pros: Great 720p screen, Solid, well-built, LTE
  • Cons: Android 2.3, Camera doesn't live up to its megapixels, S3 processor

Sony Xperia Ion (AT&T) review: Elegant smartphone stumbles

CNET
31 October 2012
  • Summary: The $99.99 Sony Xperia Ion looks like a good Android deal but its weaknesses make it not worth even the budget price.
  • Cons: Lackluster images and video belie the Xperia's claimed 12MP camera. It's also held back by an old processor and an outdated OS.

Sony Xperia ion Review

  • Summary: I guess ‘old wine in a new bottle’ is how I would describe the Xperia ion. The phone is essentially an Xperia S with new overalls, a larger battery, slightly larger screen and a microSD card card slot. And for just this, Sony is asking for Rs. 36,000! That’s a good six grand more than the current price of the Xperia S . Like I said in the beginning, the ion just doesn’t have any place in the market right now, it’s a phone that should not exist.

Sony Xperia Ion Review

31 August 2012
  • Summary: The Sony Xperia Ion's persona makes you a fan instantly, and has no visible flaws as a phone. It has good looks and stable performance, while presenting you with excellent call clarity and fairly good battery life. However, things start to go wrong the moment the price tag comes into consideration. With the Samsung Galaxy S III and the HTC One X available in the same price bracket, the consumers cannot decipher any comparison in the favour of the Xperia Ion.
  • Pros: Very well built, Excellent call quality, 720p display is very crisp, Very pocket able despite bigger display, Classy and understated design elements, Camera quality brilliant in good lighting, Good battery life, Android ICS out of the box
  • Cons: Dual core processor fighting the quad cores, Brings us to the point of the perplexing price tag, Display doesn't have colour punch of an AMOLED

  • Conclusion: What does kill the experience a bit are the touch-sensitive buttons at the bottom of the screen – these didn’t always respond to my taps, no matter how hard or soft I pressed. They’re also not backlit, so good luck tapping the right buttons in dim light.
