    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; ;

It happened from 2 months. Now they are telling we cannot do anything.nSo please never purchase from such a website who always give false guarantee.

    Overall: I did not buy this phone from Flipkart, nevertheless I want to share my experience with this phone with other prospective buyers.nnPros:n-----n- Excellent 12MP Camera. Better than the one in any other phone. Pictures are of great clarity and quality.nn- PowerSaver is a good featurennCons:n-----n- Its been not even 3 months and my phone refused to get charged. Took it to the Sony authorized service center at Vadapalani, Chennai. The engineer checked the phone for 2 hours and asked me to submit the phone to them for deeper investigation! Then came the shock - I called them the next day and was informed that motherboard has to be replaced and this would take a minimum of 10 days time! The only consolation being the device is in warranty still!nn- The length of the usb cable that is provided for charging the phone is very very short. Have never seen such a short cable for any device before. Highly impractical designing.nn- Phone has a Micro HDMI port, but no cable is provided in the box. nn- The phone has 4 touch buttons at the bottom. One of them was not responding properly to taps! Beware of this defect. Check before you buy. nn- Does not come with access to Sony Entertainment Network (as told by the sales guy at Univercell - purchased it there). India is not in the list of those countries where access to Sony Entertainment Network is providednn- Also sensed a problem with bluetooth connecting to my car bluetooth system. Did not have the same problem with other phones.nn- Beware that the battery cannot be detached. Its a single unified body at the back
