I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Sprint. I received a sample device to facilitate this review.
Looking for a Smartphone as a gift this Christmas? Look no further. I have found a great option at price that won’t break the bank as some smartphones can. The Sharp AQUOS Crystal Smartphone from Sprint.
“Trendsetters who want a beautiful high-end phone without having to pay a high price. Tech aficionados who value stunning sound, a sizeable screen and an 8MP camera for crystal-clear photos.”-Sprint
I have been trying out this smartphone for a couple weeks now and I really like it. It boasts a “Stunning picture quality on a 5-inch edge-to-edge screen” and I have to agree it is a really great screen and the way it goes all the way to the edges makes it look really cool. In fact that is probably my favorite thing about this phone, the sleek and modern look. Besides looking really awesome (which it does well) I like streaming videos on this phone because of the screen. It’s great.
“Sharp AQUOS Crystal breaks the mold of traditional smartphone design. From its stunning picture quality and immersive, vibrant display to its sleek, 5-inch edge-to-edge HD screen, AQUOS Crystal revolutionizes the mobile phone experience. The chic, compact exterior houses a smartphone powered by Android 4.4.2 KitKat and supported by the ultra-fast Sprint Spark network. Showcasing incredible audio with Harman Kardon® technologies and HD voice, and a camera that can make any amateur look like a pro, AQUOS Crystal is truly technology without bounds.”-Sprint
The camera has some really cool features like automatically taking a photo when it detects a smile and Night Catch which brightens the subject and background for nighttime shots. I really like the quality of the photos I took. Here are a few that I took with this phone.
I like the crisp clear images I can get when taking pictures on this phone. I took a picture with my camera of me taking a picture with the phone. This is a great example to show how the Sharp AQUOS Crystal camera will lighten a space that is dark to capture a clearer image.
Another cool feature of this phone is that it allows you to use voice and messaging services via Wi-Fi. I think that is great. Phone service plans can be expensive so being able to use Wi-Fi is a huge bonus.
Another thing I like is that this phone has Harman Kardon’s LiveStage with Clari-Fi Technology which adds dimension to the sound. I love listening to music all the time and having a phone with good quality speakers is a must for me.
This phone also comes equipped with Google Mobile services like Google Search, Google Maps, Google Navigation, Google Talk, Google Calendar, Google+ and YouTube. I’m a big Google user (use it all the time) so this is perfect for me and I like that all the Google applications are in one place so I can access them quickly and easily.
This phone makes a great and affordable gift this Christmas! It has great features but won’t break the bank like other smartphones do.
