In an era where every smartphone manufacturer is trying to (directly or indirectly) imitate every other manufacturer, it’s actually pretty refreshing to see someone try something different. The AQUOS Crystal looks like it’ll be a breath of fresh air in the mobile world, and a great choice for anyone who’s not keen on the design of any of the current market leaders.
