4th of July videos shot on my Sony Xperia Ion from At&t Summerlin Nevada Independence Day Parade

I recently upgraded my cell phone to a Sony Xperia Ion–>

Sony Xperia Ion from AT&T

So far I am impressed by the quality of the product, plus I used it to shoot videos for youtube for the 4th of July 2012.



The family and I went to the Summerlin for the Parade and I shot some video of the show and took photos with my Sony Xperia Ion.

I am fairly impressed so far.

I am looking forward to it having Android Jelly Bean or Ice Cream.

I am surprised it did not come with any headphones in the box.

Other than that so far so good.
