When it comes to some features, you get what you pay for

Sharp FX Plus

from Cnet (about 1 year ago)

Kudos to Sharp for giving the Sharp FX Plus a visual and OS refresh. Android 2.2 Froyo isn't the most current of Google's mobile operating systems, but AT&T, Wal-Mart, and Sharp all know that smartphones, especially Android ones, have a certain reliability and market allure. It has going for it... More

Inexpensive, solid QWERTY keyboard with great battery life

Sharp FX

from PC Magazine (2 years ago)

Though the Sharp FX Plus, certainly looks like T-Mobile's classy smartphone, it’s a less ambitious device. Available exclusively through Walmart, the FX Plus is a good choice for AT&T texters looking to save a few bucks, and it’s the best keyboarded Android phone available on AT&... More

It clearly doesn't have anything compelling to make it a superior offering

Sharp FX

from PhoneArena (3 years ago)

Since the Sharp FX is a mid-range offering priced at $99.99 after rebates, its performance and set of features make it a compelling offering over its rivals like the LG Vu Plus on AT&T. Not only are we witnessing a rebirth of some sort with the Sidekick line, especially when Sharp manufactured t... More

Another quick messaging device for AT&T

Sharp FX

from Phone Scoop (4 years ago)

The QMD lineup at AT&T is a puzzling mix. They all have QWERTY keyboards, and some have touch screens as well. The FX falls into this latter category. I suppose the primary target for QMDs -- tweens and teens -- might like the SMS/MMS and IM capabilities, and not care much about the weak (an... More

Is clearly meant for the Sidekick crowd

Sharp Kin Two

from Phone Scoop (4 years ago)

There are omissions on the Kin Two I can excuse. No calendar, no instant messaging, no navigation; I can live without if the target audience really doesn't use these features, as Microsoft's extensive focus research has shown. But the lack of these features is hardly the biggest problem I have w... More

The KIN TWO isn't a smartphone

Sharp Kin Two

from MobileBurn (4 years ago)

The KIN TWO is the larger of Microsoft's new KIN series of phones. The devices, to me, are Microsoft's watered down version of Windows Phone 7. There are some similarities, after all, including the panel home screen and a focus on keeping you in touch with your friends - not only through calling and... More

A very fun, engaging device to use

Sharp Kin One

from MobileBurn (4 years ago)

The KIN series of phones, which is currently made up of the KIN ONE and the KIN TWO, are Microsoft's attempt at building a feature phone platform that offers many of the capabilities of a smartphone, without all of the complications. The KIN ONE is the cheaper of the two KIN devices that Verizon Wir... More

There are much better choices for much less money on the market

Sharp Kin One

from Engadget (4 years ago)

And that about sums it up -- there are much better choices for much less money on the market, and Microsoft hasn't demonstrated to us why you would choose this phone over those. You could argue that the 720p video recording is a hook, but our results weren't that outstanding, and we don't know a... More

Offers more Sidekick functionality than ever before

Sidekick LX 2009

from MobileBurn (5 years ago)

If you liked any of the past T-Mobile Sidekicks over the years, it seems very likely that you will love the new Sidekick LX 2009. It offers more Sidekick functionality than ever before, and it does it with significantly upgraded hardware.The coming ability to actually use the Sidekick LX with a corp... More

Smaller and lighter than the prior models

Sidekick 2008

from MobileBurn (5 years ago)

The T-Mobile Sidekick 3 was the first Sidekick that could really compete head to head with regular cell phones and smartphones on features. The new model for 2008 takes those same capabilities and puts them into a competitive form factor, one that is smaller and lighter than the prior models, yet st... More

This is the WORST phone and SHARP has THE WORST customer service!

Sharp Kin One

(2 years ago)

Oh my goodness...this phone does not work after having it for only 6 months. Verizon's system does not interface with this phone. There's no place to put a memory card so everything is stored directly on the phone. You have no idea how difficult it is to get it out! I just called Sharp's custome... More

Not too impressed with Kin TWO

Sharp Kin Two

(3 years ago)

I bought this phone and was impressed at first with some of its feature but when looking in my package for a users manual there was none. Not only now that microsoft doesnt own it and verizon is still selling it u do not get some of the regular feature that originally came with the phone. it is not... More

I agree!!

Sharp FX

(3 years ago)

I like the looks of the phone, BUT the CD does NOT go into enough detail on how to do things with it. I'm not one of those youngsters that can figure out all this stuff automatically. I'm beginning to HATE this phone!

Darn!

Sharp FX

(3 years ago)

I might like my new phone IF I had a booklet that told me how to use it. The C/D that came with my phone won't download on my computer. I like the design of the phone. It performs very well on the things I can figure out on my own -

Award Winningly Horrible

Sidekick 2008

(4 years ago)

I agree with EVERY other post. My 2008 sidekick will also randomly shut off, or the screen will go black forcing me to turn the phone off....aaaand of course when I do that I loose everything on my phone. I actually have all of my telephone contacts written down in a book so that I can re-enter them... More

GARBAGE and WASTE of MONEY!

Sidekick 2008

from Amazon (4 years ago)

Please, do yourself the honest liberty of getting an iPhone if you want true internet freedom, speed, and access. I went wrong by getting this and not the iPhone. T-Mobile's service here in Texas is poor. The internet access and browser capabilities of this phone are TERRIBLE. I cannot express my di... More

Doesn't Deserve the Great Reviews....

Sidekick 2008

from Amazon (5 years ago)

This phone is awful!! I just got this phone in January. Six months later, I'm sending it back to T-Mobile in exchange for a different one. Thank God for the warranty.. It was a great phone up until about two months ago. It started just shutting itself off out of nowhere. I then would not be able to... More

this phone model should be recalled.

Sidekick 2008

from Amazon (5 years ago)

This is the WORST model phone you could buy - seriously. I wonder why it has not been recalled. I got this phone right when it came out last summer because, at that time, the internet/messaging bundle was cheaper than that for Blackberry. I also really like the keyboard - I still think it's one of t... More

Sharp Sidekick LX

from Phonedog (5 years ago)

Pro: very stylish phone, qwerty keyboard is very comfortable and large, screen display is very clear and vibrant. music player is crystal clear. able to download themes. and lights on each corner of the phone is another attraction to this phone. Con: pictures takin with the phone camera isnt so cle... More
