Xperia sp is 300$ more expensive than the ion
And moto g isn't available in my country
Why shouldn't I buy one?

never buy sony phone.As you buy it ,you will be disappointed.No good rom,no better service,also they will not give you any update when the phone is old,even one years old devise.

thats weird because SP is cheaper than ION here in my country. I think there are better choices out there. You may want to look on mediatek powered phones. they are much cheaper than qualcomm. I'm not sure of the built quality though. I'm on a rebranded micromax a114 right now and its working good and awesome, they're almost half the price of international brands

If you can get it in your country, the xiaomi redmi is right within your budget. Even the Xperia V is a great alternative. Ion has a snapdragon s3, so it's a fact that it is slower and more power hungry than even the 1st gen s4 processors.
