In this review, I will talk about the Sharp FX Plus, a phone running on the Android Platform.
Sharp FX Plus features a very decent slide out QWERTY keyboard paired with the Google’s Android operating system. It is also shipped with preinstalled 2 GB of memory in the form of an SD card. The only major drawback of the phone is its battery life, which is quite short. The phone also features a very mediocre processor that can make your navigation of the software a choppy experience. The keyboard isn’t the best we have seen either. For an Android 2.2 phone, the Sharp FX Plus is a budget option that anyone can pick up and use. To find out more, read our review.
To start my review, I will talk about the features and design of the keyboard.
The Sharp FX Plus features a 3.2 inches touchscreen display with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels, paired with a color depth of 262 K colors. Alongside the slide out keypad, the phone also features soft keyboard in the form of Android basic keyboard and Swype flavored keyboard. The screen offers good display quality, but it is not where near the other smartphone screens. Just like any other Android based smartphone, you get at least seven home screens to customize to your taste The interface featured on the phone resembles much of the original Android experience, but it does has an extra tool bar at the bottom of the screen which gives you a customized feel.
Moving further down the review, below the touchscreen, you will find the common navigational buttons that are mostly on every Android based smartphone. These buttons include the back, menu, home and search keys. On the back of the phone, you get a 3 megapixels camera, which is good enough for taking profile pictures. The camera is also capable of recording videos, but don’t expect it to record HD videos.
To finish off my review, I would say that the Sharp FX Plus is a great entry level budget smartphone. It combines all the Android features with a average keyboard that text enthusiasts can take advantage of.
