I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Sprint. I received a sample device to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. We hope you enjoy learning about the Sharp Aquos Crystal Smartphone!
How many of you often get a new phone for Christmas? Well, if you are looking for a great gift for the guy on your list or if you need a better blend between home and business features, you are going to want to take a closer look at the Aquos Smartphone from Sprint!
When our Aquos Crystal phone showed up on our doorstep I opened it and immediately thought “now that is a rugged phone and Man could love”. So you can image how I about fell out of my chair laughing when the husband came home, saw it and took it immediately saying, “Now that is MY kind of phone!” Haha!
The Aquos Crystal features a more rugged appearance with a 5-inch edge-to-edge HD screen and silver and black trim and backing. It feels more sturdy than most smartphones I’ve held. And is quite sleek in design.
It features less buttons on the outside to be bumped or snagged on pockets or in the purse. Or you know…the embarrassing accidental pocket dialing.
But there are a few key features of the Sharp Aquos Crystal that really makes it the best blend between Home and business features that makes this the perfect phone for those who bring home the paycheck.
