I have one, bought in Japan, it's a no,no,no!
Despite their IGZO low comsum screen, battery will leave you after 6-8 hours, but camera, camera is a disaster. If sharp doesn't cover with an upgrade on software then this phone is the bigest scam on the market
AnonD-709529, 21 Oct 2017Dude are you on crack? What do you mean a slight difference? After switching to 144 from 60 th... moremaybe he is blind. That is the only reason, why he cannot see any difference at all. I can recognize difference between 60Hz and 75hz. So from 60hz to 120hz is giant leap and good way to go. Finally something interesting starting - iPad pro, Razer phone and now Sharp. And hopefully more to go. Hopefully, SoC will be powerful enough to drive such a high refresh rate!
For sure this is not the most beautiful phone on the world. But it is small. I read somewhere it meashures 132x66x9.2 mm. It is same size as the original Samsung A3 with its 4.5 inch screen. So the big shit on the bottom can be swalloed. Go Sharp.
Tann Hauser, 22 Oct 2017Yup, future for googled VR... But no daydream Im affraid...this is ips lcd screen. And scre... moreI think they wont use LCD's Ever for google Daydream.But a 120Hz Amoled panel would be really great for VR.Maybe next Google daydream will get that upgrade
Hope they change their minds and make a worldwide launch. I'd buy it in a heartbeat. The market is starved of compact phones with decent specs.
Why Sharp? The camera placement is only legitimizing partial screen displays. However, 120hz is the future.
Finally. A 5 inch bezel less phone. Instead of having a pocketable flat screen TV like most other brands trying to make
120Hz display is nice, but the rounded display corner is weird, I prefer squarish display. Rounded display corner and 2.5D or edge display is weird trends. Bezelless is nice for both side, but bezel-less for top and bottom is a bit weird, because the front camera proximity sensor speaker and thumb rest areas are all here.
zodiacfml, 21 Oct 2017Sharp did it again! Though Apple was first to implement one but it is on the iPad.
Do you know which manufacturer Apple bought that screen panel from?
Is it from the same manufacturer as this Sharp's panel?
The only thing about this phone that impresses me is the 120Hz refresh rate of the display.....
AnonD-491921, 21 Oct 2017Google daydream,gear VRYup, future for googled VR...
But no daydream Im affraid...this is ips lcd screen.
And screen cutouts dont help with goigled mobile VR.
Maybe Daydream will change its mind now, with these superb lcd screens. ;-)
They just need to ditch the nonsens cutout design.
AnonD-491921, 21 Oct 2017Google daydream,gear VRI ask about battery. I already said VR & AR.
I wonder how fluid the MOBA game Arena of Valor would be? Since it has a high frame rate setting? but can people really notice the difference from 60hz/fps to a 120hz/fps ???
