Can Your Phone Do This? Features of the Sharp Aquos Crystal

This post has been sponsored by Sprint as part of the #SprintMom #MC campaign. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

So many phones these days look very similar, but the new Sharp Aquos Crystal phone from Sprint is breaking the mold with a unique and very cool crystal edge design. The screen stretches across the full glass and ends with a sharp bevel which disappears into sides. You can also configure some unique lighting options which cause the edge to light up when you activate your phone or plug in to charge. Seeing your games and movies from edge to edge is unlike anything I’ve seen before and it’s sure to grab attention from others!

You can watch your favorite videos and enjoy the full 5-inch HD frameless LCD display (1,280 x 720). Imagine tuning into YouTube or Netflix and seeing a borderless picture! The Sharp Aquos Crystal is also equipped with Sprint Spark which provides the capacity to greatly improve the performance of video and other bandwidth-intensive applications. Sprint Spark is designed to support a new generation of online gaming, virtual reality, advanced cloud services and other applications requiring very high bandwidth.

The Sharp Aquos Crystal seems to be an entertainment powerhouse as in addition to the frameless LCD display, it also features specialized harman/kardon audio settings. Choosing to activate the Clari-Fi and LiveStage sound options means your headphone listening experience is amplified and more lifelike. I love plugging my headphones in and heading out for a run while listening to Spotify in superior sound!

My girls loved watching some YouTube video clips with their headphones and the harman/kardon featured sound settings.

Another great feature on the Sharp Aquos Crystal is the Night Catch camera feature. Below you’ll find a photo of myself and my daughter at a movie theater, an environment that is typically very dark and hard to photograph in. I love how this photo turned out and the Night Catch camera feature seemed to really help capture a great photo in a tough lighting situation.

Lastly, I’ve got to mention the Wi-Fi Calling capability. This means you can use existing Wi-Fi networks to make phone calls or send texts instead of using the cellular network. Think of traveling abroad and being able to call your family or send texts to friends when you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network!

Again, the Sharp Aquos Crystal is a great new design in the crowded device market. The edge-to-edge screen design is unique and fun, while the amazing features like the harman/kardon sound, Night Catch camera, and Wi-Fi calling all help you keep you connected and entertained.
