    The hunt for an Android device is one that is never ending, and it ultimately comes down to an internal battle of when "enough is enough" and one device is good enough to last you for the term of your contract. Is there ever a perfect device for everyone? No. The beauty of Android is that there is a ton of devices to chose from, some big and some small, some powerful and others just spec'd for the entry level consumers. Back at CES ...

    Pros: The 4.6-inch display is gorgeous, and they have packed a whole lot into a small package. The 12MP camera performs great, and overall the device runs rather smoothly.

    Cons: Launching a device at this point with Gingerbread may not be the best of ideas, especially when it's released five months after initial announcement. Video could use some improvement as well.

    Verdict: Sony has done a great job with this device, while they still have customized the UI, they haven't gone overboard and they have kept the AOSP speed that we have grown to love. The small additions like the quick launch for the camera and built in p...

    Sony has lagged behind in the U.S. smartphone market, but the company hopes to turn a corner with its first post-Ericsson smartphone, the Xperia ion. The device leverages many of Sony\'s unique assets, including its own sensor for the 12-megapixel camera and a mobile version of Sony\'s TV Bravia engine for the 4.6-inch HD display. Plus, the ion taps into Sony\'s wide array of media content and is PlayStation certified. Add in 4G LTE speeds and NF...

    Pros: Bright and sharp 4.6-inch 720p display; Superb 12-MP camera; 4G LTE at value price; SmartTags feature lets you control the phone from a keychain

    Cons: Ships with older Android Gingerbread 2.3.7; Heavier and thicker than competing smartphones; Capacitive buttons hard to read; Tinny audio from speaker; ;

    The Xperia Ion is the first phone Sony has produced since its big split from Ericsson. It represents Sony’s challenge to high-end Android phones like the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3 on AT&T — and at half the price ($100) — putting it in direct competition with the new Motorola Atrix HD. At $100 cheaper than the top of the line smartphones, we expect that some corners will be cut. But are those cuts are worth the savings?...

    Pros: Cheap $100 price,Top-notch specs,12-megapixel camera,4G LTE connectivity,

    Cons: Camera autofocus is slow,Navigation buttons unresponsive,Scratchable screen,Runs old version (2.3) of Android,Outdated processor compared to competitors,USB port cover is cumbersome,

    Verdict: The Xperia Ion is not a bad handset, but it does feel about six months old. This is likely because it was first shown in January at the Consumer Electronics Show. Many things have changed since then, but the processor and operating system on the Ion ...

    The Sony Xperia Ion is a sweet phone for a great price that's just not getting enough love. For $99 you get an award winning design with a sleek glass front and curved metal back, LTE 4G and a 12MP camera. And you thought the once $99 Nokia Lumia was a good deal? The Ion tops it for hardware specs. The phone has a 4.6" 720p display with Sony's various marketing names heaped on (Bravia, HD Reality Display) that's simply stunning, and it has H...

    Pros: Gorgeous display, elegant looks with quality materials.

    Cons: What's not: Last generation CPU and ships with Android 2.3.

    Verdict: For a budget priced phone, the Sony Xperia Ion, like the Motorola Atrix HD has a good helping of top of the line features. The display, elegant design, classy materials and excellent camera make our collective heart go pitter-pat. Voice quality and r...
