    Default The Sharp Aquos Crystal - LG may have competition!

    In regards to bezels the G2&G3 implemented the new trend for most to try and get them as small as possible.

    Sharp have introduced the Aquos Crystal and whilst I think its a nice looking device. I'm left confused, when on call it looks like you have to turn the device effectively upsidedown? I'm not to sure I could get used to that lol

    So as good as this looks, I think a sensible approach is needed and the G3 hits the spot :-)

    What do you all think?....link bellow.

    I think it looks terrible compared to the G3. Like a cheap Chinese phone.
    And I'm not sure if Sharp can make a good software for the smartphones - it looks ugly on the picture.

    New device will only get better and the G3 will be old news shortly!

    I do like it but Bezel less hmmmm It just doesn't seem practical tbh.

    The G3 will hold its own for a while yet and I'm more than happy using it until the G4.

    Bezels slimmed down is one thing, this is another and flipping to make a call ERM no that is a disadvantage IMO .

    Looks interesting. Ugly to me but it's nice to see what others can come up with. Competition can being about some pretty cool things.

    Lower RAM and no mention of expandable memory on 32 version.

    Very interesting phone, if priced right I'll pick it up. It's definitely no competition to the G3, but I like the approach taken w the very thin bezel

    Mid range specs but could be an eye catcher. Specially here in Europe since it won't be (officially) sold here.

    They should have took half of that huge lower bezel and put it up top with the camera and speaker.

    This seems to be a failure before it has even been launched.

    I also think a huge bezel on the bottom is kinda weird, but I'm happy we are all different and I'm sure some will like this phone.

    For a good price (since it's midrange) I would buy it. Its a special piece of kit with those looks.

    Anyone notice how thick the phone is as well?
    It looks nice and dandy from the front, but sides and rear look poor.

    Not interested.
    Front isn't clean.
    I like the LG G3 front; no buttons and all glass. To each his/her own, but I don't have an M8 because the front wasn't clean and with a screen protector you have a ridge where glass meets metal.

    Also mid-range specs.... My S4 had better specs a year ago. Yawn....

    Its probably not meant to be compared with the high end phones.

    Could compare well to a moto g for example.

    There is also the Crystal X with beefed up specs.

    Snapdragon 801 processor

    1080p screen

    2gb ram & 32gb storage.

    Oh and that one is staying in its homeland.

    I do agree it not as clean as the G3, and I like the earpiece up top you know where its meant to be :-P

    Not very impressed if you read the article it Cleary says that it will be a mid-range phone so that right there doesn't give the g3 competition. Remember too LG is a proven company when they produce a device you know from experience what you are going to get. I think that it will be a long time before there is a flagship that gives the g3 a run for its money. I guess I am just a die hard fan of LG and there devices they are solid and the displays while maybe not what the aquos is offering is still the best in the business. Hands down and that is why they(lg) produce displays for other manufacturers.

    So does sharp. Sharp does actually make awesome displays and they sell to others as well.

    Agree. It is far from "bezel free" pole some sites are claiming. That huge bottom bezel is ugly. Would have looked better if they split that between the top and bottom and went bezel less on the sides.

    % wise I bet the G3 has more screen to bezel because that bottom bezel is pretty big.

    I would agree. Mid-range specs for sure. I do like the look of the phone, but would of like better guts.

    I the device performed just as good as the high spec'd devices would it matter? I think it's all about how the device functions rather than going alone with high end specs.

    Valid point, my friend. I have a dual core and lower end specs on my blackberry. It performs excellent.

    Thanks for bringing me back to earth.
