I want to buy one of the devices, and not know better Acro or ion please tell me Any Good
Xperia acro s xperia ion both good phone
sorry, but XPERIA Acro S is only waterproof, although the screen is scratch resistant it's something that every smartphone supports right now, including XPERIA Ion
of course Acro S is Preferable than Ion. its Dust+Scratch+Water Proof. most Durable phone ever in the Market.
HEY that's not fair their must be a winner. i can't afford both. i confused between these two and what i saw a TIE. plz give us a winner
Thanks for this nice comparison. :) So my choice is comfort, for the Ion. ;) 
Hey nice comparison, thank you mate.
