I participated in a campaign on behalf of Influence Central (#MC) for Sprint. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.

I bring you the hottest new Sprint devices on the market, and today we are looking at the new Sharp Aquos on the Sprint network. The Aquos has quite a few interesting characteristics to set it apart from the crowd. The most obvious is the screen. One look and you can see the screen goes all the way to the edge. No longer is there a border around your screen. This is alot more interesting and fun then you would suspect. The only downside being you will want an edgeless phone more often then not now.

The camera sports two 8 MP (3,264×2,448 photo resolution; [email protected] video resolution) and 1.2MP front-facing cameras (1,280×960 photo resolution; [email protected] video resolution). There is also a new mode of picture taking called night shot which makes both the subject and background brighter, for those difficult nighttime shots.

This photo was taken with the Aquos cell phone- it’s clear and the camera was easy to use.

The phone itself is a Kit Kat 4.2 Android phone which runs on the Sprint Spark network. The network is a combination of advanced network capabilities built for data delivering peak wireless speeds of 60Mbps. In addition to the strong network you can also make Wi Fi phone calls and send Wi Fi text messages as well. (Like when you are out of range but not out of internet access.)  This is incredibly useful on vacation where internet might be included with your room, but you get zero bars on your phone.

In general, this phone is impressive and makes for quite the visual stunner when showing pictures or videos to others. By sporting the Harman Kardon’s LiveStage music listening on headphones, it is crisp and sharp sounding. The Sharp AQUOS Crystal is available now at Sprint stores everywhere.

Comments

  1. We have this phone and love it! Makes taking pictures seamless too!

  2. I just got a smart phone. For years I refused to get one… now that I have it, I don’t know how I lived without it.

  3. I hope to get a smartphone some day. We don’t have any G where I live so it’s rather pointless until we get it. This looks like a really nice one.

  4. I think I’m suffering from some phone envy right now. Love how it has almost no bezel on it!
