Summary: i bought this product because sony equals quality, its a great phone, i like the camera and the ram, but i don't like the flash, i would like to have the xenon flash. its a great phone compare with others with the same price, like samsung galaxy SII, this phone is a lot better.
Excerpt: Xperia Ion HSPA is very good phone for moderate users (not heavy or gamers). The camera is good but lost some function i.e. 3D sweep paronama on updating to Android 4.1.2. Display is fully awesome and packed with full entertainment.
Pros: Stylish body, Stunning UI
Cons: Battery life not as expected, No official update after 4.1.2 as it is mid 2012 range phone.
Summary: A lot of people complain about the buttons at the bottom of the screen. It's really no big deal. You can swipe them "up" just like you would swipe "down" for the top menu on the screen. The one really big downside is having a fixed battery - cannot be pulled out as it is hardwired in. I downloaded an app once that made the phone freeze completely with the screen on - holding the volume up and power buttons will shut it down typically.
Summary: It happened so that I can not use the smartphone, all unlock refuses me to do, because  Network subset 0  Service provider 0  Corporate 0  Sim 0 The problem is, nobody knows how to deal with it, in fact I sell goods that do not work and how it will be repaired
Excerpt: Really happy with this phone. Even though it's S3 processor it performs like a champ. I have a HTC with same processor clocked at a higher speed and Sony still outperforms it which shows hardware and software are top notch. Built like a tank, handles drops no problem. HDMI output is really fun. You can control the phone with the factory TV remote and works with almost all new TV's even cheap brand ones like Vizio, Insignia, etc. 720p display looks amazing.
Pros: Fast, Build quality, HDMI output with TV control, Nice UI, Screen, Camera, Battery life, Comfortable to hold, MicroSD card slot, works with 64GB card, USB OTG compatible, NFC, Extremely fast LTE (on compatible networks)
Cons: Internal speakerphone, Not gorilla glass, scratches VERY easily, Audio output to speakers quieter then other phones, but headphones output seems louder then other phones, Uses MicroSIM, even though slot will fit MiniSIM perfectly fine, Non removable battery, USB+HDMI port flap/cover broke off after a week
