One of the big marketing points that Sony has been talking about its new smartphones is Fast Capture. Sony claims that you can take a picture from standby in just 1.5 seconds on both the Xperia ion and Xperia S. This was put into practice by the Phandroid team, who decided to put the Xperia ion up against the Galaxy Nexus to see which handset could snap a picture the quickest.
Galaxy Nexus runs Android 4.0 ICS, which features camera optimisations including zero shutter lag. However, this was still not enough to beat the Xperia ion, which was markedly quicker. Check out the video showdown below.
