Summary: After buying the phone all was good as well until after 3 months the phone got kinda slow and the microphone stop working . I had to buy a wholeeee flex cable jus to get the mic to work again . After searching online for help i realize it wasn't only me having this problem.
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.

Summary: I have always been a fan of the Xperia series. It is one of the most successful series by Sonly (also, formerly, or Sony Errickson) and over the years I have used a number of models from this series. Actually I came across this series a few years ago when I was looking for a phone with the following characteristics: 1. Very compact 2. Easy to use 3. Superb camera quality 4. Reasonable price I found that the Experia series met all the above requirements.
Summary: I've had this phone a while now, almost a year and a half and it is tough! I have beat this bad boy to death but it never stops going. The only cons were that the loudspeaker did go out and part of the touchscreen went dead but those are simple fixes for me.
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.
