The good: The Sharp FX Plus is a side-sliding Android smartphone with a decent keyboard, good call quality, and 2GB external memory preloaded.
The bad: Battery life is short on Sharp's FX Plus, and the 600MHz processor slows things down. The keyboard keys are also a tad flat.
The bottom line: The Sharp FX Plus is a budget Android 2.2 smartphone for certain first-timers, but when it comes to some features, you get what you pay for.
Awful phone, died twice, do not buy!

Pros: Cheap. That's it. Still not worth the price.

Summary: We bought this phone - and literally the day after we started using it, the screen started flickering and looking funny, then it wouldn't even start at all. We took it back to the store where we bought it, and they said it was a bad battery and replaced with a new battery.
No joke, less than TWO WEEKS later, the phone completely died again! This time I have no idea if it's the battery again or something else, but I give up. This crappy phone is not worth buying or using. Never have I experienced such a useless piece of "technology." Save your money and get something else.
FX plus could have been great, but isn't

Pros: Android phone with a nice physical qwerty keyboard. Appears to be fairly durable.
Cons: This phone is so slow and unresponsive!

Summary: I bought this phone after the screen went out on my MyTouch 3G Slide. I liked the price for a brand new unlocked one I found on ebay. I compared it to my old phone with geekaphone.com and it was very comparable. It has a 600mhz processor, just like my MyTouch 3G Slide, but this phone is so much slower. Sometimes I get texts but the phone will not "wake-up" for several seconds after pushing the button or trying to unlock the phone with the touchscreen. Sometimes I have to touch the screen several times before it will actually change screens (but phone vibrates every time). Seems like it has the hardware to be a nice phone but it lags big time. I mean, it has gotten me by until I qualify for an upgrade, but it's agonizing to wait on it all the time.
The funky and dashing new sharp fx plus is amazing!
by MoStNeR7 on August 4, 2011
Pros: The funky and dashing new sharp fx plus is greatly attractive to most text-friendly users.
Cons: This is a new competitor with other android phones, and is definitely better than the original Sharp FX because of a not-so-laggy screen.
