I believe the simple comparison on Samsung Galaxy S3 and Sony Xperia Ion below will bring you some useful clues.
Information on Samsung Galaxy S3Samsung Galaxy S3 is unveiled on May this year, as the flagship smartphone from Samsung, which has been available in most countries for a long time, in Unites States, we can only pre-order it from AT&T , Verzion and other carriers so far, but fortunately, it will be available soon.
Information on Sony Xperia IonSony Xperia Ion will be available in this 24th, but it has been unveiled for about half a year, seems a little disappointed, as what my views.
Comparison on Samsung Galaxy S3 and Sony Xperia IonActually, the difference between Samsung Galaxy S3 and Sony Xperia Ion is very obvious, For the processor, Samsung Galaxy S3 is a smartphone with 1.4 GHz quad core processor, but it is as the same as HTC One X, in Unites States, which is the version with 1.5GHz dual core processor. Sony Xperia Ion is a 1.5GHz dual core smartphone too. and For the memory, Samsung Galaxy S3 from AT&T is a 2GB RAM and 16GB built-in storage with a maximum extention to 64GB, Sony Xperia Ion is a 1GB RAM and 16GB built-in storage with a maximum extention to 32GB. For the screen, there is not obious difference, they have the same 1280×720 pixels display, only Samsung Galaxy S3 has a 4.8 inch supper AMOLED screen but Sony Xperia Ion has a 4.55 inch TFT screen, and at the same time, the pixel density on Samsung Galaxy S3 is 306ppi, Sony Xperia Ion is 323ppi. For the camera, probably the most important difference between Samsung Galaxy S3 and Sony Xperia Ion, Samsung Galaxy S3 has a 8MP main camera with 4× digital zoom and a 1.9 MP front-facing camera, but on Sony Xperia Ion, which has the 12MP main camera with 16× digital zoom and a 1.3MP front-facing camera, so if you want to get a phone with a better camera function, the Sony Xperia Ion is better to choose. For multimedia, Samsung Galaxy can play more different video types, as which can play MPEG4, H.264, H.263, DivX, WMV format videos or movies well, but for Sony Xperia Ion which can only support H.264, MPEG4 and H.263 format videos or movies. and in the audio aspect, Samsung Galaxy S3 can play MP3, AAC, AAC+.eAAC+,FLAC, WMA,AMR,OGG format audio well, but Sony Xpeira Ion can only support MP3 format audios.
From these upon, you may get some things you want, and with my opinion, I think Galaxy S3 is much more better Sony Xperia Ion if we are not so care about the camera function, and with the factor of multimedia supports from them, it's easy to know that Samsung Galaxy S3 is much more better for us to watch movies and videos, if we have a lot of DVD , Bluray movies, HD movies, Samsung Galaxy S3 is surely the better choice between them. Except for these hardware features, the S Beam, Smart Stay and other excellent humanization design on Samsung Galaxy S3 will bring people a better and easier life.
However, this Sony Xperia Ion is one of the few real smartphone from Sony itself, and which is the first LTE smartphone from Sony, as which can be hooked up to TV set and Sony SamrtWatch, also which can download music and movies from Sony Entertainment network, and it is said that the price of Sony Xperia Ion will be $100 with a two-year contract from AT&T.
So if you have some Sony devices in your home, you can choose Sony Xperia Ion, although Samsung Galaxy S3 is much better than Sony Xperia Ion in the mass. As Sony Xperia Ion will make it more easy for you to watch movies or play games with these devices together and Sony Xperia Ion is a great camera smartphone.
