The Bezel-less Sharp Aquos Crystal.

There are reasons why devices have BEZELS, the major reason being, to give devices structural integrity.The sharp Aquos Crystal is defying this, and for the first time we are seeing a manufacturer designing a device with a zero bezel device at the top, right, and left side of the device except the bottom that has a fat bezel.

Display And Resolution

The Aquos Crystal is a getting lots of attention not because of the specs it packs , but for its zero bezel.The Aquos display is a 5.0 inch, edge to edge display with a 720 x 1280 pixels (294 PPI) resolution which makes it great to focus on whatever it is you may be doing, watching movies, browsing and playing games on this device looks cool in the display aspect and not in performance though, you feel like there is no boundaries between you and the movies, the games or the pages you are browsing.


As earlier mentioned , the Aquos did not excel in performance because of the middle class Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 Qualcomm MSM8926 Snapdragon 400 chipset and a 1.5Gb RAM spotted inside .However, it is decent enough to run most application and some 3D games, not all.


An 8.0 MP primary and 1.2MP secondary camera looks quite decent but not great.It can shoot video of 1080p@30FPS.


There are features sacrificed on this device, basically because of its design, the font facing camera is at the bottom, so when you are taking a selfie, the Aquous has to be turn upside down. It lacks a proper ear-piece but features the Direct Wave Receiver technology which vibrates the entire screen so that you can receive calls by placing your ear near the screen at any point and angle.

In conclusion, I will say you really have to be careful when handling the Aquos Crystal , as dropping it may compromise the structural integrity.I also doubt if there can be a cover or casing for the device that will not cover up some part of the screen estate.
