Sony Xperia Ion Review

Digitaltrends
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Cons: Camera autofocus is slow, Navigation buttons unresponsive, Scratchable screen, Runs old version (2.3) of Android, Outdated processor compared to competitors, USB port cover is cumbersome

  • Conclusion: For a budget priced phone, the Sony Xperia Ion, like the Motorola Atrix HD has a good helping of top of the line features. The display, elegant design, classy materials and excellent camera make our collective heart go pitter-pat.
  • Pros: Gorgeous display, elegant looks with quality materials.
  • Cons: Last generation CPU and ships with Android 2.3.

Review: Sony Xperia Ion

Wired
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Sony has finally struck out on its own. The Sony Ericsson partnership is over — Sony bought out Ericsson’s slice of the phone-making venture earlier this year — and the first Sony-branded phone is the Xperia Ion , a new Android handset exclusive to AT&T’s 4G LTE network.
  • Pros: Sony delivers a flagship-worthy CPU, display and camera at a mid-range 0 price point. Quality materials make the phone feel durable. Nice touchscreen display. Hooking it up to an HDTV launches a minimalist, big-screen-friendly interface.
  • Cons: Has all the personality of a Ford Taurus. Outdated, clunky design. It runs last year’s operating system (Gingerbread? Really?), making the whole experience feel behind the times.

  • 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!

  • Summary: Was für ein Brett! Man erschreckt sich förmlich, wenn man das Ion aus der Verpackung holt, so groß und schwer ist das Smartphone. Okay, das rund 4,6 Zoll große LCD-Display erfordert nun einmal Platz, um die beeindruckende Auflösung von 1.280 x 720 Pixel – also HD-Qualität – anbieten zu können.
  • Pros: Sehr großes & hochwertiges Display, Exzellente Ausstattung, Gute Kamera
  • Cons: Mäßige Sprachqualität, Groß & schwer, Schlechte Rufbereitschaft
