Hands on with Sprint's skinny bezel Aquos Crystal phone

Tim Hornyak | Aug. 20, 2014
The most striking thing about Sprint's upcoming Aquos Crystal smartphone only becomes clear when you turn its camera on.

Sprint is offering App Pass for US$4.99 per month. Users get free access to popular apps and games across two devices as well as US$5 credit every month for in-app purchases.

Under its new CEO Marcelo Claure, Sprint is pinning at least some of its hopes on the Aquos Crystal as it tries to improve its competitiveness. It lost 220,000 subscribers in the second quarter and T-Mobile USA may soon have more customers, according to analyst Chetan Sharma.

Since it abandoned its bid for T-Mobile, Sprint has refocused on aggressive pricing plans. On Monday it announced shared data plans that offer double the high-speed data for the same or lower price compared to AT&T and Verizon Wireless.
