Sony Xperia ion for AT&T review: US Xperiance

Let's be honest here - Sony missed a great opportunity with the Xperia ion for AT&T. Had the device hit the shelves shortly after its announcement, it would have enjoyed a flagship status and a higher price tag, along with the potential for selling in significant numbers.

Unfortunately, if you really want to grab a Sony Xperia ion for AT&T, you will have to make do with Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread. read more →

  • Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support
  • Tri-band 3G with 21Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA
  • Category 3 LTE network connectivity
  • 4.6" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine; Scratch-resistant glass
  • Dual-core 1.5 GHz Scorpion CPU, 1 GB RAM, Adreno 220 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 chipset
  • Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread out of the box doesn't cut it for a high-end device this far into 2012
  • Display has sub-par side viewing angles
  • Underwhelming front touch buttons and side camera key
  • Non-user replaceable battery

Sony Xperia Ion review: an Android handset with a split personality

Sony's Xperia Ion is a dependable device that heavily plays up HD, but falters with a mix of old and new specs.

What's the verdict? Well, if you've been following along you already know that the Ion has two irreconcilable faces -- and one tempting price tag. Were we smartphone doctors, a prescription for an imminent Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade, an aluminum body-lite diet and maybe even some dermabrasion for that mucked-up, logo-bedecked front face would be in order. read more →

  • Gorgeous 720p display
  • HDMI out experience is intuitive
  • Battery life holds up well under daily usage
  • Build makes for uncomfortable fit, in hand
  • Inconsistent LTE speeds
  • Ships with outdated Snapdragon S3 processor and Android Gingerbread

    Sony Xperia ion Review

    Honestly people, the Sony Xperia ion would’ve been a downright success if it were launched months ago. At the time of its official unveiling, we were astounded by its commanding specs sheet, but seeing that it took an extremely long time coming to market, its appeal has lessened – even more now that we’ve experienced the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III for AT&T. Still, we can’t help think about its immaculate $99.99 on-contract price point, which is undoubtedly one of its greatest attributes – much like the Nokia Lumia 900. read more →

    • Killer $99.99 on-contract price
    • Sharp looking HD Reality Display
    • Sturdy construction
    • Heavy with Multimedia
    • Running Gingerbread
    • Jerky web browsing
    • Questionable battery life
    • Unresponsive capacitive buttons

    Sony Xperia Ion review (AT&T)

    The $99.99 Sony Xperia Ion looks like a good Android deal but its weaknesses make it not worth even the budget price.

    Sony's new $99.99 Xperia Ion offers some good features for its affordable price. The Android smartphone connects to AT&T's blazing-fast 4G LTE data network and opens the door to Sony's vast music and movie entertainment selection, not to mention the growing list of Android apps and services. read more →

    • The affordable Sony Xperia Ion has solid call quality and swift 4G LTE that ties into Sony's vast entertainment empire.
    • Lackluster images and video belie the Xperia's claimed 12MP camera. It's also held back by an old processor and an outdated OS.

    The rectangular phone shape from Sony Xperia range is really very impressive & looks classy. Phone is also very good in running. Processor is response. So is touch.
