AQUOS Crystal: All Screen Smartphone From Sharp

One feature I like the most with LG G3 is its bezel-less 5.5-inch screen. I was expecting for other smartphone major players like Apple and Samsung to follow suit but surprisingly Sharp (a company that is making a comeback) is the first worthy challenger to compete with LG on the bezel-less phone category. Sharp's AQUOS Crystal has almost edge-less 5.0 inch screen with 1280x720 resolution and pixel density of 294ppi. The resolution is not quite impressive on paper when you match-up it with the major flagship smartphones today but you need to try it first to decide if the resolution is not enough. It weighs only 141g, a bit lighter when you compare it with LG G3 and Galaxy S5. The dimension of AQUOS Crystal is 5.16 x 2.64 x 0.39 inches.

Under the hood, it has Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2GHz Quad-core CPU and 1.5GB RAM. Its internal storage is only 8GB but can be expanded up to 128GB through microSD card slot. When it comes to capturing moments, AQUOS Crystal went to iPhone 6 direction instead of its Android rivals. It has 8MP main camera and 1.2MP front facing camera for selfies. It can capture HD video of 1080p resolution. Sharp claims that AQUOS Crystal can last up to 13 hours of talk time with its 2040mAh battery. It runs on Android’s 4.4.2 KitKat and will be available in the US starting October 17th.

AQUOS Crystal most important feature is the edge-to-edge premium 5-inch display


On paper, the specs of AQUOS Crystal falls behind its Android rivals. But don't be quick to judge. Take a look at iPhone newest models, similar to AQUOS Crystal, their specs are not also as impressive as other flagships phone today but they surely won the heart of many consumers. I think this is what Sharp is trying to achieve with AQUOS Crystal which most important feature is the edge-to-edge premium 5-inch display. Personally, I find AQUOS Crystal as gorgeous phone and if not for the wide bottom bezel, I'll definitely say that it beats LG G3 in bezel-less phone war.
