The Aquous Crystal is undoubtedly one of the most impressive smartphones ever released by Sharp – a large Japanese corporation that specializes in manufacturing consumer electronics. As you’re probably well aware, today’s smartphone market is highly competitive, with giants such as Samsung and Apple constantly struggling to gain an edge. Therefore, for a company that only releases a smartphone every now and again, it’s very important to come up with something original in order to gain success.
The Aquous Crystal smartphone by Sharp stands out among its peers thanks to a nearly bezel-less design. The gadget appears sleek and elegant, and its only bezel can be found on its lower end, probably for practically purposes. Furthermore, the Aquous Crystal features some relatively impressive and competitive tech.
It is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 microprocessor and boasts 1.5 GB of RAM memory. Its operating system is the acclaimed Android KitKat, while its 5-inch screen features 720p resolution. As far as storage is concerned, the smartphone offers just 8 GB of internal memory – a modest figure that can be expanded with the use of microSD cards. The 8-megapixel camera can film 1080p videos at 30 frames per second and can even capture panoramic photos.
