Design and size is awsome. Sharp needs to make a better solution for the speaker, update the CPU and make a GSM version!
hi guys, it just arrived as pre-order here in Indonesia (GSM-LTE device), but the price tag is set as high as USD350 approx., meanwhile when I'm googling I find that it's sold for USD149 only abroad, is it really that cheap? Or did I make a mistake?
Sharp just needs to make a gsm/umts version of this phone! its awesome and its not fair for the people who live in countries with no CDMA/LTE coverage to be deprived of opportunity to use this phone!

If you want this phone to run on gsm antenna, you need to buy or order it from japan, Sharp Aquos Crystall 305sh model... If you have LTE broadband in your country so you may purchase Sharp Aquos Crystall 306sh model from USA (japanese model will also work for US, but for specific providers and in some cases it has several disadvantages, read below), with is even cheaper then japan one (?) with dramatic prize of 128$... deal of the century. Know that japanese 306sh model is for japan only. It is locked so u need to unlock it in order to change to your provider. And Android OS of 305sh is also japanish... configured and changed for there web services, sometimes problems accured with fonts and so, UI is unfriendly (?). In order to fix this u need to change OS to standard Android.. found in google store, and fonts maybe fixed via rooting through system and adding new administrative fonts on it, any Linux guy will help u to do that. But pls before buying this phone look through your countries antenna-band to know witch model is the best to buy. Design is fascinating, cool and soft... u'll like it to keep on your hand, something other then usual mobiles... so TY ;)
This phone is fantastic looking cosmetics are great. However the phone sound is very poor even on speaker it sounds muffled and you barely hear it, also the keys on the keyboard are way to sensitive when texting

I'm in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro. I just received the aquos crystal SH306 from USA. I need to know if someone got to unlock this cell phone? the device didn't get to find the network here.
I don't understand why the Sharp Aquos isn't going to receive the 5.0 update , new phone running on the old kit Kat.lol why Sharp!
Hello. I wrote one comment a month ago but unfortunately, was not posted. Sorry. Anyway, I am in ph now, went to greenhills to have it unlocked, or atleast use an xsim but did not succeed. My friend who bought this phone said it is already unlocked, but cannot use overseas somehow. Planning to sell it, or if there is somebody who can help me unlock would be great. Cheers! Great phone indeed. No hang-ups, just enough speed, with very pretty design.
Luke, I hope you succeed since a singaporean by the name of benny_hk (seller of JPN and Korean phones) says he managed to unlock all 2g/3g/4gLTE bands on his. But the cost is too high.
Also, I can't find any rooting method for this.
But then again, I also couldn't find cwm for zte v969 on foreign sites but fellow filipinos managed to have cwm on their v969.
