Sharp FX Plus (AT&T)

Phones
-Hey everyone, I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET. Today, I'm taking a first look at the Sharp FX Plus. This is a new phone for AT&T and it is the successor to the Sharp FX, which was also side sliding phone for AT&T. This phone does have an updated. It's got more rounded edges and corners. It's has also got rounder keyboard buttons and matte black soft touch finish that's really nice to touch. Most importantly, it's got android 2.2 Froyo. Now, that isn't the most current android 2.3 Gingerbread, but this is a smartphone and that's definitely an update from the previous quick messaging phone that was the sharp FX. As an android phone, the FX Plus has also the google services that you have to enjoy like maps, navigation, G-Mail, YouTube, and so on. There's also the music player on board. Unlike other android Froyo phones, this one here cannot serve as portable wireless hotspot though. There is a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen, Swype is an option for the keyboard. There's also a 3-megapixel camera and camcorder on the back and it comes with a 2 gigabyte micro SD card for storage, but you can upgrade that to a 32 gigabyte card. As I mentioned before, there is a slide out keyboard and that isn't easy mechanism to use. The keyboard was pretty compact, which is good for my fingers. My only complaint is that that the buttons themselves are little bit flat, which slowed me down a little tad when I was typing. Call quality is good on his phone. Photo quality is acceptable, but not as good as call quality. Battery life on FX Plus is pretty poor, but if you do plan to be close to a power source that line won't bother you as much. It has a very affordable entry level smartphone for first time smartphone owners and it is sold exclusively through Wal-Mart for $28.88. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET.com. You can find all the pros and cons of the Sharp Fx Plus on CNET.
