  • Pleasantly retro styling. Includes broadcast mobile TV tuner. 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Tons of multimedia features and services, a nice social networking app
  • With a touch screen to complement its full QWERTY keyboard, the Sharp FX's design has a lot to offer texters. Multitasking is a perk, and we appreciate the social-networking shortcuts and carrier features like AT&T Navigator and AT&T Mobile TV

Editors Didn't Like

  • Poor reception. No voice dialing. Blurry, stubborn screen. Buggy camera. Bloatware-infested. A little heavy. Required $20-per-month messaging plan kills value
  • Serviceable but uninspired phone UI, speakerphone has a noticeable buzz
  • The Sharp FX's touch screen is laggy, and the cramped menus are frustrating. Also, the mediocre call quality cast a shadow on what would otherwise be a promising phone
