I am a smartphone maniac, and i keep tracking all new and upcoming smartphones. Recently after the launch of galaxy s3, i think sony deserves the top smartphone. xperia ion is an excellent device with great display and camera hardware. This smartphone has to be lined up in the world's top 5 smartphone list. Good job, SONY.

The phone has one of the best screens on the market. It took great pictures and had a solid feel. Doesn't feel cheap like some other plasticky Android phones. LTE was a big plus. As much as I wanted to love this phone, the phone would randomly reboot on its own, performing master resets did not solve the problem. The outdated Android version (gingerbread) hurt the experience as well, couldn't install chrome browser as it required ICS. Restocking fee that the Sony store left a sour taste, it's rebooting issue made me return the handset.

Best phone for the Money!

By CyCSLAgrad

from Los Angeles

Comments about Sony Xperia Ion AT&T Wireless Black Cellular Phone:

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!

Amazing Smart Phone

By damber

from Adelanto, CA

Comments about Sony Xperia Ion AT&T Wireless Black Cellular Phone:

This is my first smart phone. I was shopping around for a while then I finally settled on this one. First thing I noticed was the look of it. It is different then most smart phones. Very handsome display. I love it. Although the battery life is low, it only takes a couple hours to charge.

Great product!

By Nexeus

from Utah

Comments about Sony Xperia Ion AT&T Wireless Black Cellular Phone:

I've had this phone for over a month now almost 2 and I love it thus far. It's a great phone worth the upgrade every bit. I was using an older samsung focus which was a windows phone. Although it was a good phone it just does not have the apps and features android does. My new sony ion has been great! It is super fast apps work perfectly. I would rate it 4.5 stars however I only have the option for full stars. The only cons on this phone is that the display takes up a lot of the battery power which is not so bad as the user manual says this battery is not harmed by charging it often. The other con is the charger cord is way too short. I tried looking for a longer version of the same cord but to no avail. Sony ericcsen makes the cord and it appears they only make the one length for the fast charge cord. The fast charge is worth the short cord as it only takes like an hour and a half max to charge this phone fully which makes using a longer nonfast charge cord not very desireable. Other than that I have no problems with this phone love it and would definitely recommend it.

Ion is On Point!

By dinodonosaurus

from Bay Area, CA

Comments about Sony Xperia Ion AT&T Wireless Black Cellular Phone:

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.

Excellent phone

By mmorache2012

from Wausau WI

Pros

  • camera, screen, speed, lte

Cons

  • Battery

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony Xperia Ion AT&T Wireless Black Cellular Phone:

    This phone is the best phone I've ever had. It's incredibly fast, has a screen that rivals the retina display, and is compatible with Sony TVs in the respect that you may broadcast pictures via WiFi to a tv on your home network from your phone to show your family. Very neat. I use NFC tags with this phone and I would recommend the investment. They are handy and save time. However, this phone has a short battery life. Keep in mind that one should look at user reviews instead of CNET for instance; all the reviewiers do is complain about the lack of ics and the snapdragon s3 being outdated. I have no prob lems with this phone. Highly recommended

    Sony Ion - Screen Freeze/Need to wait

    By Frustrator

    from San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    • Big Screen Size/Great Camera

    Cons

    • Screen Freezed twice/Need to wait whole day until Battery ran out

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony Xperia Ion AT&T Wireless Black Cellular Phone:

      Sony Ion is my second Sony phone, the first is C905. I love their cameras. However, Sony Ion made me frustrated by Screen freeze twice with just browsing the website. The screen stuck at the same website or game until battery ran out. I can not rely that Sony Ion will work 24/7 when I need to use it. The screen may be freeze. Can not turn off. Can not touch or do anything. A lot of my friends love Sony Ion at first sight but I can not recommend them at this point. Should this will be my last Sony phone?

      Best in Xperia phones ...

      By Gats

      from Palo Alto, CA

      Pros

      • Speed, resolution of screen, sound

      Cons

      • Cover of power connector. Sim

      Best Uses

        Comments about Sony Xperia Ion AT&T Wireless Black Cellular 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.

          Mini Tablet

          By Alberta123

          from Myrtle Beach, SC

          Comments about Sony Xperia Ion AT&T Wireless Black Cellular Phone:

          I've only had my phone for five days. Overall it is an improvement from my Palm Pre Plus. I like the speed, flexibility, and functional features. I don't like the reboots that seem to happen for no apparent reason, having to recharge the phone often (supposed to have a long battery life) and the low pixels for the front facing camera (the images or not clear enough for me). The charge cord that I received with the phone is the shortest charge cord I have every received with a phone (I've got to use a surge protected extension cord to charge). That is all so far.
