The Ion is sporting some impressive specs under the hood, as well. It's powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, and comes with 16GB of built-in memory. There's also an empty microSD card slot, which allows you to add up to 32GB of additional memory. The phone is running Android 2.3.7 (Gingerbread), and Sony has pledged to upgrade its devices to Ice Cream Sandwich. It felt super swift and responsive as we swiped between home screens and loaded apps.

A Standby time specification is an industry standard. The only intention is to allow comparison of different mobile phones under the same circumstances. Factors including - but not limited to - network, settings, location, movement, signal strength and cell traffic strongly effect standby power consumption. Therefore, Standby time specification comparisons of different mobile phones can only be done in a controlled laboratory environment. When using any mobile phone in real life - ie, under circumstances for which the mobile phone is intended - the actual standby time could be considerably lower and will be strongly dependent on factors as mentioned above.
