Hands-on with Sprint's Flash Android Smartphone

| Friday, February 22, 2013 | | |

Sprint has named its new gadget as ‘Flash’ and has quietly slipped into the category of budget smart-phones. ZTE and Sprint released the gadget with less paparazzi by simply selling it in online stores. They also released a spec sheet for customers who are much interested in learning about this new budget phone. This hidden gem has been noted for its 12.6MP camera. Take a look at a detailed description of this phone.

The Beam

The all new feature is the ‘Beam.’ With this feature you can share data with other phones much faster than before. Using the ‘Beam’ you can share contacts, webpages, maps and YouTube videos by merely touching the two phones together. Is your friend new to your town? He might find great difficulty in finding out directions in a map. You can go to his immediate help by sharing directions using the Google Maps.

Verdict

The ‘Flash’ is popular for its 12.6MP camera, but sadly delivers a sub-par performance. The Sprint’s Flash Android Smartphone is a decent one, but can never be compared with some of the high end phones like LG Optimus G, Samsung Galaxy S3 and others. These Android based phones deliver better performance in terms of features, battery life and outward appearance. Whereas, when this phone is weighed against some of the other budget phones in the market, ‘Flash’ holds a special place for itself.
