Re: Xperia Ion v\s Other Phones..!!

Now that Sony Ericsson is no more, I want to see changes, to truly release phones with the latest of technology, if they are to be call flagship phones, not just technology that should've been released a year ago, but it's slightly better than those phones. I wonder what's stopping Sony to release phones w/ OLED instead of  TFT, or better quality products, aluminum it's a start but I don't think that's the best option. Yes I really like Carbon Fiber, sony utilize this material quite often on VAIOs maybe they can do the same w/ phones :smileyhappy:

Re: Xperia Ion v\s Other Phones..!!

yeah but until summer, I hope the XDA forum support it, and SONY update it at the same rate as the S, I'm a bit concerned about this phone, its not part of their NXT lineup, is the NXT line up just the design or is there something else going on there?

Re: Xperia Ion v\s Other Phones..!!

ok this is quite something

http://www.xperiablog.net/2012/03/01/sony-mobile-cortex-a15-phones-in-h2-2012-quad-core-phones-in-20...

“We’re going to join quad-core when we feel that the performance matches the battery efficiency. Because right now we don’t feel that is there. What we are going to be doing in the second-half of the year is moving to the Cortex A15 architecture, which we feel outperforms the current quad-core architecture.

You’ll see in 2013, as we’re evaluating the quad-core performance where it makes sense, where you’re not suffering in quality and the performance truly is there, and there really is something that demanding applications need. That’s when we make the right move to quad-core.”

seriously? does Sony think in 2013 high end smartphones will be running Quad-cores?

I want to see how the S performs against any phone running Tegra-3
