Anonymous, 12 May 2016Please, sell this in EuropeHi! You will be able to buy it via kyoex.
holy shooot it looks prettt nice, now I'm having second thoughts whether to get this or Sony Xperia X. Eitherway their both definitely Japan Premium made products and not cheap chinese one's. Guess I'm gonna do some toss coin.
Great collaboration, moto zn5 was collaborate with kodak. Can't wait to see canon etc collaboration
and when it enters Indonesian market, its price will rise twice!! just like Sharp Aquos Crystal
Ridiculous bezels, 12 May 2016Wow those ridiculously large bezels from Sharp? Lame move from a company who knows how to make... moreThey'll probably send it to Europe (now with the refugees we've become some kind of thrash can "community" or should I say "bunch" of countries) while Japan will get the best tech.
Ridiculous bezels, 12 May 2016Wow those ridiculously large bezels from Sharp? Lame move from a company who knows how to make... moreI agree, why do we never get the bezelless phones like the Aquos Crystal. This thing looks generic.
I like the design, metal frame sandwiched with dual glass,, there are antenna strip on metal frame to make sure death grip never happen , they know how to make a phone better than sony.
Such a renowned company, but all products avail n Japan only. Like Panasonic it it known all over. Launch n Asia ESP S.E.Asia
HigherPrimate, 12 May 2016I thought sharp got bought by foxconn, or was it only sharp display? Anyway, this phone looks ... moreFoxconn did not buy the whole company. I think they bought only the display department.
Dear GSMArena, this device has a 5.3 inch Full HD IGZO display.
Wow those ridiculously large bezels from Sharp? Lame move from a company who knows how to make almost bezel-less phones. Instead of moving forward they stepped back WTH are they thinking?
Name Please, 12 May 2016I think Sharp collaborated with Sony to make this particular phone (and further phones of Shar... moreVery doubtful. A lot of companies can make good IP-xx phones.
The camera is probably bought from Sony, again as many companies do now.
Collaboration is very common and easy in the phone companies now. Samsung sell their rounded screens, Sony sell their cameras, LG sell their screen tech too.
Linas, 12 May 2016If Sony would have Apple like attitude, they would sue for many reasons.. because phone is squ... more...and on top of that it looks nothing like a Sony phone, more Samsung with it's rounded shape - or iPhone. Many phones look similar to many other phones. Your comment makes it sound like your saying Sharp are cloning Sony.
But, it is a very good point. Apple have had some fantastically ridiculous lawsuits against Samsung. Remember the S2 that looked like the 3GS?
Samsung have taken Apple to court for stupid reasons, too though.
I think Sharp collaborated with Sony to make this particular phone (and further phones of Sharp if possible) fully waterproof. 22.6 Megapixel is also close to 23 Megapixel, so I'm thinking that they worked together, LITERALLY
From when Ricoh is "premium"? Large, multinational... but not premium by far.. they don't even have reasonable DSLR, nor video camera.. the best they do are compact value based cameras... OK they are big in printers business, but that doesn't make them "premium" in cameras market .. maybe Canon, Nikkon... but not Ricoh... Ricoh is like cheaper than Sony (bare in mind almost all camera sensors nowadays made by Sony).... In plain language Sharp gone for "value" camera suppliers, not "premium" one..
If Sony would have Apple like attitude, they would sue for many reasons.. because phone is square, because it is metal with glass back, because camera is on the same side on back, because MP count is around 21MP and finally, because it is potential competitor... Thanks GOD Sony is not Apple...
