The smartphone has become more than just another technology category. Smartphones have changed the way we interact with each other, conduct business, and entertain ourselves.
Smartphones encourage debate about design, aesthetics and functionality. Smartphones cross age and culture barriers. Smartphones connect people. Smartphones are fashion.
Many major manufacturers are aware of the fashionable status of the products they create; much money is spent on design and development, with talented individuals responsible for shaping the products we use every day.
With this in mind, Sugar have adopted a traditional female-centric ideal and high class approach to producing a device that has quality built in to its very framework.
Swarovski Pure Brilliance Zirconia
The manufacture of a Pure Brilliance Zirconia is a technique closely guarded by Swarovski. The patented procedures create a beautiful gemstone replica, cut to a 57-facet shape and polished to deliver a lustrous rainbow finish. Each stone is uniquely marked with a seal of quality invisible to the naked eye.
Every Sugar Phone has 129 Swarovski Zirconia stones embedded into the metallic frame and edging. The stones are set by hand into a Tiffany classic prong, utilising the skills of trained setters, each with at least 3600 hours experience in the field.
Every stone is hand polished with jewellery grade tools for the perfect lustre.
The introduction of Swarovski crystals bridges the line between jewellery and technology. The result is elegant and highly visible without being overbearing, a classic design augmented with a personalised style.
Your phone, your control
Sugar have more about them than simply adding stones to a smartphone. There are Swarovski studded cases and accessories available for a host of phones that can acheive the same effect, so the Sugar Phone has more tricks than just this.
The Android 4.2 interface on the Sugar Phone has been completely modified and optimised with the user in mind. A choice of themes ranges from a clean and simple set of icons, buttons and colour augments, to a more ostentatious take with shortcut images and links taking on a crystalline appearance.
The quality of the camera also has the ability to make or break the reception of a smartphone and Sugar are fully aware of this.
High quality camera performance and editing
Other smartphones that find themselves in 'mid-range' specifications often fail to deliver a decent camera. Sugar are bucking that trend by ensuring the main camera is of a certain higher quality. Sony produce some of the best mobile sensors and the 13 MP unit in the Sugar Phone is in that category.
The backside illumination technology results in a more receptive sensor that can receive more of the incoming light, for a more detailed and nuanced image. It also performs better in low-light conditions than many competitors.
The average smartphone has a 2 megapixel camera on the front. Some have moved up to 5, but almost none reach anywhere near 8. Sugar have adopted just this, an 8MP front-facing camera, also developed by Sony. The result? Excellent selfies in a variety of conditions.
It's not just down to the hardware though, Sugar have included several software enhancements to help manage your pictures. A One touch beautification button offers 20 unique effects to apply to images. It also utilises face-tracking technology to create skin smoothing effects and other selfie-positive tweaks in real time.
Object removal can be a very useful tool - if you take a picture of a landmark or some scenery and someone walks through it just as you shoot, try this feature to crop them out without having to resort to Photoshop.
A full 3D panorama mode is available too, as well as a GIF creator for creating funny and interesting short clips for friends, loved ones or your social media followers!
