Xperia GX versus Xperia ionThe Sony Xperia GX was announced earlier this week for the Japanese market – a 4.6-inch handset running a S4 Snapdragon dual-core processor with a 13MP camera, 16GB internal storage. The handset in many ways bests the Xperia ion. It has arguably a nicer design, a more efficient processor and on-screen buttons (not capacitive touch like the Xperia ion).

However the Xperia ion has a higher capacity battery (1900mAh versus 1700mAh for the Xperia GX). The Xperia ion also has expandable storage, although the Xperia GX may do too, the full specifications haven’t been revealed yet. Anyway, we gathered what we could find to compare the specs below and we will update it as we hear more. Which handset gets your vote?
