Description

The AQUOS Crystal has a 5" 720p display, an LTE-capable quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC running at 1.2GHz, 1.5 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage space, and runs on Android 4.4.2. The battery capacity is 2040 mAh, which might not seem much, but let's not forget that the Crystal display is made with Sharp's IGZO technology, so the company promises three days of battery life with normal usage.
