Review: Sony Xperia Ion for AT&T
Sony got the Ion about 60% right. Strengths include the excellent display, solid call quality, neat social networking software, bountiful media options, and an outstanding camera. For potential users who are heavily invested in Sony's online gaming and content networks, the music and video services offer a lot of appeal.
The weaknesses, though, are hard to ignore. The poor battery life alone is enough to make the Ion a dubious purchase. Toss in consistently slow data performance and the finicky hardware and it makes the Ion tough to love.
Perhaps shut-ins who rarely go outside (or at least are never far away from a power outlet and Wi-Fi) won't mind the poor battery life. The awesome camera is a major draw, but again, only if you can see past the device's other faults.

In the end, I'd only recommend the Ion to committed Sony-philes and photographers who want a camera with a phone attached, and not a phone with a camera attached.
