For those of you with decent Sprint coverage and looking for the popular Sharp AQUOS Crystal smartphone at an appealing price, the smartphone is currently available online from Boost Mobile for $109.99 after instant $40 rebate. However, there is an additional discount available via coupon code AQUOSRMN50 from BensBargains, bringing the total from $109.99 to $59.99, making the phone an even better choice as a Wi-Fi-only Android PMP, whether or not you need the phone functionality.
The Aquos Crystal features a 5-inch 720p display with a glass front and no side or top bezels, with the bottom bezel serving as the microphone and the front facing camera placed on the left of the microphone. The phone also includes Harman Kardon Clari-Fi and LiveStage audio technologies along with Direct Wave Receiver audio technology, which uses the display panel to create sound amplification for phone calls instead of integrating a conventional speaker. The Aquos also supports microSD cards up to 128GB in size.
The phone is otherwise a current mid-range Android phone with a Snapdragon 400 and Android 4.4.2, an 8.0 megapixel main camera and a 1.2 megapixel front camera. The phone also features software developed by Sharp such as Clip Now, which takes screenshots with a swipe and makes them easily sharable with their own links to use across social media along with Speaktoit Assistant, a natural language personal assistant that can perform a number of tasks, such as answer questions, open apps, place calls, and send messages.
