Amazing Phone!

Posted on: August 3rd, 2012 by Cris Zepeda

I waited so long for this phone to come out, ever since it was announced back in January. I got it 2 days after it came out because my local Best Buy didn't have it until then. And I can tell you, this phone was completely worth waiting for. The screen is absolutely beautiful! The form factor fits very well in the hands. The 12MP camera: JUST AMAZING! And the phone its self is fast, even though the processor is last generation, but its fast! I love to load music onto my phone. 16GB pre-loaded onto the phone, and plus my local Best Buy gave me a FREE 8GB memory card which I loved! Overall, if you are looking for a great media and personal phone, this is perfect for you! Especially at Best Buy where it is $50, well at mine it is, so I'm pretty sure it should be at every other.

Waiting on update to ICS

Posted on: July 19th, 2012 by Anonymous

This is a really great phone. The issue with battery life that most people have is easily solved. Just allow the Ion to die, all the way to 0%, then charge to 100% without use. Do this at least once and you can get 11+ hours out of your phone. everything else is great, ICS would be nice, but it isn't a big deal. This phone is the best android device for the price ($50 at the Sony outlet!).

Great phone, fast and smooth

Posted on: July 5th, 2012 by David Dunlap

Only downfall as i can see is the quiet microphone (making calls) and the speaker (non-speakerphone) people complain about it not having ICS, but i dont really care that much about a software update.

A really great phone

Posted on: June 29th, 2012 by Ryan Mirch

I got the xperia ion june 24, the day it was released. the two main reasons i got it was for the camera and the screen. Both of which are amazing. call quality is excellent but the volume is lacking. The battery life is interesting. if you put the ion in airplane mode and just turn on wifi it will last forever! but with cell service on the battery only lazsts about 6 in a half hours... the design is excellent. its rounded back is metal and the front is a single sheet of glass. the sides are not rounded. this makes for a very premium, sleek looking device. some may hate the design, but i love it. Browsing is a bit clunky, but it never freezes and is more than tolerable. Even though it uses an s3 processor, it has plenty of power. everyday use, games and just about everything else runs very smoothly( aside from the browser). The camera takes extremely fast, good looking pictures. If you can overlook the s3 processor, i SERIOUSLY recommend this device.
