Amazing Phone !!

People dont look at the number of cores !!! It makes no difference as long as it is above 1Ghz and is a dual core. This phone is fast, it has a 12MP camera (awesome) !!! Sony's UI is just as good as HTC's. Also only sony and nokia are giving HDMI and USB OTG (on the go). Other phones have otg but the connector is yet not available in most cases ! Plus sony has made a xperia ion multimedia dock in which there is a port for power, a HDMI port and two usb ports !!! So this means if u hav a movie...

The best Smartphone Out There...... !!!!

Amazing build quality.... RED one is so sexy... feels good to hold...
Touchscreen is just awesome!!
Talking about specs..... Xperia series uses Timescape UI which i much tighter UI than Samsung's touchwiz... timescape is not processor hungry and does'nt require lot of RAM as well... I had a galaxy note before this and i have used S3 and note2 as well.
Samsung has poor build quality and poor UI no matter which smartphone u take...
Switching to Sony was the smartest decision i have ever made..

Please do not compare with other cellphones. It's lame.

Five stars purely for Sony's quality and it's superb deliverance.
I do not own an ION ,but I am a Sony user and have always admired it's quality.
The reason I am writing this review is because of some reviews I read which compared this phone with iPhone.I mean,really? Sony phones are of a great quality and cost less than HALF of what iPhones cost.
The best part is Sony phones are made to cater to the needs of Indian consumers while maintaining a high end benchmark of being unique and attract...

"Get more than what you pay for"

Excellent Camera, Beatuful design....after about a weeks use these are the pros and cons that i found...

Pros:

1) True colors in HD due to having non-amoled screen( which has saturated colors)
2) Great 12mpx camera
3) Unique design with glass on front & aluminium on back.
4) Sound quality is amazingly great on this phone
5) Low pricetag

Cons:

1) Battery life could be better, but turn off the BRAVIA engine and you'll be fine.
2) Can lag at times maybe because the processor is older
