i got Sharp EL-9900 which much better from any smartphone including iPhone 5
More beautiful than S3 Galaxy! If Japanese phones are available worldwide, I think S3 sales will drop a lot.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2012I wish Sharp would release their Japanese phones stateside. Sharp and Casio phones in Japan a... moreCasio is not that good these days, you can't see any new Casio phones which can compete with the likes of LG or Samsung. Sharp of course can compete with everybody, because they are on a high level. Fujitsu is also able to compete with everybody. These 2 Japanese companies are the most strong from their country now.
Ben, 11 Oct 2012How is it better, have you personally tried this phone? If not, stop talking a load of BS. He probably didn't tried it, but as I see, this one looks as it's better. This one is waterproof, it has a 16 MP camera, it has 2 GB of Ram, 32 GB of internal storage, it has a new IGZO screen.

phonegeek007, 11 Oct 2012Is it only for Japanese market. Then what should we do? I'm not japanese.You can buy Japanese phones from j-phone.ru, and all the new Japanese phones DOES not need a Hypersim!
Klaudio, 11 Oct 2012More MP don't mean better image quality... Proof: HTC Titan II...Research before posting something ok? Sharp makes one of the best camera phones from the world, using CCD sensors. They were beaten by Nokia only this year! Sharp is amazing!

s, 11 Oct 2012Wtf I totally don't understand the Japanese manufacturers. It's like.. they release SO FREAKIN... moreI think they are afraid of being sued by Apple. Look at Sammy. When they earned a name in smartphones and gained large amount of market shares, Apple was threatened.
So there solution was to file lawsuits and ban smartphones, especially the flagship ones. And to pay $1B+ for damages if Apple wins. Its called monopoly, I think. Not just Sammy but hTC also had a taste on patent issues from Apple.
aqua24, 11 Oct 2012another japanese phone that seems to look great on paper until once it is release in the inter... moreyou have no idea about their phones since you havent been there. back in 2006 i own a toshiba 911T and it was a great phone that time (that was during the pre-iPhone era).
manufacturers like sharp, casio, toshiba, make most of their great phones just for japan use and and people like you doesnt even know. a lot of good phones they have that doesnt even exist here in gsmarena.
that time (2006), when the world was crazy over Nokia's 130ppi display phones, they have alreagy utilizes 250+ppi, gps navi, digital tv, Felica (something like google walet).
i think the only thing that saves korean phones (like samsung n LG) was the emergence of Android. japanese phones have network proprietary OS.
i think japanese network adapted the use of android just this late 2010.
