Pros

    •    Capacitive touchscreen display is rare for a messaging phone
    •    Speaking of the screen, the Sharp FX has a WQVGA display that shows colors crisp and vibrantly. In a word, it looks beautiful.
    •    3.5 mm headphone jack
    •    Memory is expandable up to 32 GB

Cons

    •    Though it ships with a 1240 mAh battery, you'll only get about 1.5-2 days of normal use
    •    For the price, we would expect something better than a 2 MP camera with no flash
    •    Though the phone looks very sleek, the sliding mechanism on the keyboard is a bit loose

Summary

The Sharp FX is one of those phones that just looks cool. The design of the phone and the buttons give it a sleek, smartphone-esque feel to it. Not only that, it has a great QWERTY keyboard and plenty of additional features for social networking. Top it off with the beautiful display and we have a solid device.
