Anonymous, 13 Jan 2018Apple was not the first to put 2 cameras in a smartphone. Dude Do some research!Apple was the not the first one to introduce dual camera, but Apple was the first to introduce 2x zoom and portrait mode on mobile using dual cameras, everyone copied including Samsung.
people moan about how Samsung apparently copying apple. this phone looks like somefthing very similer
It does not seem new model of Sharp Aquos S2, but just little face-lift revision of 6 month old Aquos S2. Same AP and memory and battery configuration. Little better than Aquos S2, but hard to tell the difference. If you already own Sharp Aquos S2, no need to look at this model. I can not figure out why Sharp make this minor revision of Aquos S2.
Just wait few months and make brand new model with newer mid-range AP like Snapdragon 670 or 640 of 2018.
Much better looking than Aquos S2, but their android version still leaves a lot to be desired.
Mr , 13 Jan 2018Long you mean 1 or 2 (lg) flagship generation before? :)You are right about apple taking other people's ideas and making it work. That good marketing by them. But sorry to say, apple did not invent both the duel camera and the notch.
Go check up on sharp they had notch before apple, which the essential phone adopted. Apple just added their own twist to it cause of their face id features.
Sharp is actually leading the way with minimum bezel. Just because they are not sold worldwide people do not know.
Not sure who copies who, because this model is based on the predecessor Aquos S2 (8797), which was announced and released before the iPhone X. One could easily say itÂ’s the other way around, but the hype and marketing around said iPhone is just greater than that of Sharp, especially on a global scale. So for folks who havenÂ’t heard of the S2, itÂ’s easy to assume itÂ’s all an Apple copy. I do appreciate both Apple and Android devices, if engineered well in both software and hardware. Just putting it out there.
Why the Notch Sharp..why? Sony, Sharp and Panasonic please redeem your respect from the Evil Copymaster Samsung.
Jimbob, 12 Jan 2018what an awful straight up copy brand... will never buy a SharpThen you shouldn't buy Apple cuz most of their "innovations" are straight off copied from other brands
FVC, 12 Jan 2018An iphone copycatSharp pioneered the minimal bezel design followed by Xiaomi, and Apple copied
Just laughing on the people who are blaming manufacturers for copying Iphones..u must know Iphones never had something new...instead of that performance slow down..I like Iphones due to their performance and secure os but blaming others is just a childish behaviour.

Mr , 13 Jan 2018I guess i never said that Apple was first. But no one cared about that before and didn't bothe... moreUm lg, HTC and Huawei had dual cameras long before apple.. and people still wanted that
Troll, 13 Jan 2018Apple didn't even started the dual camera trend anyway. They also copied a lot from different ... moreApple almost never invents anything. But what they do - they take the best from everyone and puts it all together in one device. And then they have amazing marketing team.
They already proved that they can sell almost anything for almost any price nowadays.
Conclusion - you don't need to invent or be the best
