Best phone for the Money!

Clearly this phone has NOT gotten the love it deserves! It can do just about anything my old iphone could but, better and costing far less. The screen is excellent for viewing HD movies and with an expandable memory card of 32G there is plenty of room for your videos. There are a great choice of free google play apps as well. It also does well for reading epub and pdf ebooks. Takes very crisp pictures and videos that can instantly be shared on the web or to another user. Like if you are at an Occupy LA protest and the LAPD gets out of hand, you can capture it all on video and sent it to youtube before your phone is confiscated! There is an "I'm getting arrested" app (on google play) that alerts your attorney of your condition and your last GPS position, it can also covertly record video while appearing to be off. You even have settings in the "Developer options" to spoof the GPS as to your location if think some unfriendly power is using it to track you and, you can also even upload encryption apps that work well for this phones that many newer phones won't accept. Clearly the NSA does NOT like this phone, get it while you can!

I have been waiting for this phone since it was announced at CES. Given a choice between the S and the ion, I prefer the ion. I am pretty sure I was the first one to pick up the phone in my local AT&T store yesterday, since they had to call a manager to see if they were allowed to sell it to me. So far, the phone has met or exceeded expectations, with only a couple minor issues. The screen is very responsive, and I was not able, in the short time I compared the phones side by side, to notice a major difference between the ion and the HTC One X. They are both quite fast, even if Sony used an S3 instead of an S4 processor. The camera features work well, and I like the added red-eye flash. I noticed a few ICS features built into the Gingerbread OS including the easy screen shot capability. Sony even improved on that feature as there is no need to hit the volume button with the power button. Sony did not overload this phone with bloatware, though AT&T made sure to cover the gap. There are several AT&T apps I would like to remove. My biggest complaint so far is the way the integrated buttons work. I have had to learn how to use the buttons, since they don't work every time by default. Sometimes I have to press hard on the buttons, other times I press and slide, and yet other times it just works as expected. I am finding I miss the hardware buttons on my Xperia X10. The phone is a fingerprint magnet, both on the front and the aluminum back. I am constantly wiping the phone down to clean it. The phone is solid, and has already survived a drop from a movie theater arm rest without a scratch. Considering the number of bounces and bangs I heard on the way down, I am impressed with the durability. A blogger mentioned dropping the phone while riding a bike and experiencing similar results. I am happy with the durability. When this phone gets ICS, it will easily compete with the HTC One X or the Samsung Galaxy III. I like the fact that the Sony looks nothing like an iPhone, unlike its competitors. Even without ICS, Sony did a very good job with the ion. Overall, I am quite happy with this phone. I think if AT&T will get around to marketing it, Sony will finally gain a decent foothold in the US.

I have been waiting for this phone to release. I got it a couple weeks after and was juggling between the Xperia S and the Ion. I do not regret my choice. It might not have Ice Cream Sandwich yet but Gingerbread already has tons of features. It beats any iOS interface. The phone itself is beautiful and elegant. The quick launch to camera makes life easier to capture. Some default settings should be changed to eliminate any possible complaints. For instance xLOUD isn't enabled by default so people may think audio is extremely low. And for the quick capture I would recommend changing it to just launching the camera app instead of launch and capture. It'll allow you access the camera instantly to focus on the subject as opposed to capturing immediately possibly taking a blurry or uncomposed shot. Another recommendation is to get the SmartDock. It will add an overwhelming amount of functionality to the phone. I'd consider it boosting it to a mini laptop when its paired to the right devices. The only complaint is if you sat on the decision of purchasing for too long you might as well wait it out till the Xperia T or whatever Sony's next flagship model arrives. Otherwise if you are in need for a phone with plenty to offer buy it now and prepare to show it off. I have done plenty of demonstrations and I am proud to rock this phone.

Best in Xperia phones ever. Supports LTE fast network. Unlock sim card is good for international traveller. Expected regular size of sim but it's ok for micro sim so far. Cover of power charge connector/hdmi is not necessary. Ion supports iPhone's headphone as well as blackberry's headphone but not mic and volume controll.
