The Sony Xperia ion is another upcoming ace of the mighty Sony. This smartphone can be said to be (like most other Sony smartphones) extraordinary, ie a device above average. Sony continues where Sony Ericsson left off, and how different than through the Xperia series of powerful phones. The Sony Xperia ion is a premium phone that comes with a 12-megapixel camera and Android operating system and much more that makes this phone really special and alluring. Also, this is the first phone from Sony with a 4G LTE connection.
The Sony Xperia ion has a 4.55-inch LCD screen. The resolution is “rounded” to 720 × 1280 pixels, which is a really good resolution, which can be compared to those from more expensive phones (which by the way are very few). At the same time, this screen is able to display over 16 million colors, which guarantees that any shade will not be left without its original display. So, the HD display, along with a dual-core processor with a total frequency of 1.5 GHz and a comfortable 16 GB of internal memory, make the Sony Xperia ion have a lot to offer.
As the Sony Xperia ion is made to put multimedia in the spotlight, then it is clear why Sony decided to incorporate two HD cameras into this phone!
Wow! Sony doesn’t seem to be kidding with anything it does, not even with this one. It would be worth starting from the front camera, which would generally not be the case, but an exception must be made here. So, the front camera has a resolution of 1.3 megapixels, and it is able to record HD material in 720p resolution and take photos in a resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels. Impressive, isn’t it? If we take into account that ordinary front cameras in VGA resolution also serve their purpose, it is clear to you what Skype chat or video call will look like when you have a camera like this. Congratulations to Sony!
The second, but by no means less, but on the contrary more valuable, camera has an enormous 12 megapixels, so it is not surprising that it is able to take photos of 4000 × 3000 pixels. In order not to lag behind the front, this camera also records video material in 720p resolution. LED video light assists when shooting in low light environments. There is already a default image stabilization.
This is by no means the end when it comes to multimedia because the Sony Xperia ion has a PlayStation certificate, which means that owners of the Sony Xperia ion model will be able to play certain titles from this popular game console on their phone. Users will also be able to use some of Sony’s entertainment content (music, streaming, movies, etc.). And in order for as many people as possible to enjoy multimedia from the phone itself, there is always a convenient and increasingly needed HDMI output, so that the Sony Xperia ion will be able to connect to powerful new generation TVs, which means that entertainment will never be lacking
Sony has probably failed when it comes to software, that is, it has only slowed down the achievement of what this phone deserves in every sense. The Sony Xperia ion is running on version 2.3 of Android, but the experienced Sony has promised an upgrade to version 4.0 very soon.
In terms of design, the Sony Xperia ion is molded into the Xperia sense, so it does not differ drastically from other models in this series. The larger screen makes the Sony Xperia ion in the eyes perceived to be slightly more elongated than it is (although the length of 133 mm is by no means small). The battery is not small either, which with its 1,900 mAh is able to provide up to 10 hours of ordinary (2G) talk or up to 4 hours of 3G of work.
The Sony Xperia ion is an almost perfect phone, which at first glance does not have any major objections. Far from being non-existent, but with this specification, the Sony Xperia ion looks pretty impressive. Of course, the price is the same, but for many it will be justified.
