I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Sprint. I received a sample device to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
As soon as you open the box for the Sharp AQUOS Crystal, you know you are in for great experience. With phones trending larger and larger, it’s almost a surprise to feel the sleek design fit snugly in your hand.
When you first turn on the Sharp AQUOS Crystal, it is easy to fall in love with the stunning picture quality and vibrant display. The screen fits from edge to edge so, for such a small phone, you still get a very nice-sized screen. You also have access to Harman Kardon’s LiveStage with Clari-Fi technology. I’m not a technical sound guy so I’m not entirely sure what that does, but I know that, when I put on my headphones and watch a video on this phone, between the picture and sound, I am totally immersed!
Pictures are a big deal for me and, over time, I am learning that pulling out the big camera for every occasion may or may not be necessary. Sometimes, by the time you’ve pulled out the fancy equipment, the moment has passed. I am excited to see some options on the Sharp AQUOS Crystal that give me more opportunities to capture special moments without lunking around a ton of stuff! The “Night Catch” feature lets me capture photos even when the lighting isn’t the best and the “Smile Detect” shutter mode option lets me get those special moments without even pushing a button! Even straight out of the phone, the Sharp AQUOS Crystal takes snapshots that could easily make their way into your photo albums.
If you’re like me, you are always looking for that next app to keep your attention. App Pass, Sprint’s exclusive subscription service, gives you access to a catalog of premium apps and games for low monthly fee! Finally, the last feature that I’m really impressed over is the Wi-Fi Calling. In our area, our cell signal might be a little weak sometimes and it’s nice to still be able to make and receive calls on our cell phone using our home wi-fi. It’s very convenient and saves us a lot of hassle!
