What the Critics Are Saying...


Cnet

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...

- Jessica Dolcourt, Cnet

Millicent

If you are a TMobile customer, be prepared to call your provider to set up the internet. Also cannot figure out how to stop phone from vibrating, which adds to the usage of the battery if you have your notifications on from mail sources. No easy way to turn off notifications either. Overall, not a bad phone, just takes a while to figure out the ins and out.
