While the Sharp phones aren't as fun anymore thanks to the Foxconn acquisition, I really wish their phones became global immediately after they hit Japan. Living in Japan was like being 5 years ahead in terms of phones solely thanks to Sharp and Panasonic devices. They were amazing back in the day. But Sharp is still an excellent alternative to many of the western brands.
Luxor, 10 Jan 2019Have you seen Sharp double notch phone? Japan tech is too quirky for me. How could they bring ... moreYes I saw the Aquos R2 Compact. Not only that was the dumbest design ever (the ZTE design that won an "award" looked much better despite the dual notches), but the normal R2 did not have that dual notch.
ProJames-CHM, 08 Jan 2019Quit making notched phones with bezels big enough to fit that dang selfie camera! Also wow,... moreHave you seen Sharp double notch phone? Japan tech is too quirky for me. How could they bring this outside of Japan? Sharp need to be imprisoned in Japan until they learn how to global. Japan still in their galapagos syndrome.
TheWanderer, 10 Jan 2019lol you need to stop using drugsSince when reading tech news is being on drugs?
I'd rather be high and educated than dumb and in denial.
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2019Sony uses oled from LG. They do not make it... Who is this they you are referring to?
TheWanderer, 09 Jan 2019I said "once ALL phones have notches" Do you understand English?Well you certainly can't read news about transparent AMOLED. That will get rid of notches forever. No holes either. 100% pure STB. No motorized selfie camera. Set for 2020.
I'll wait for it on my Note9.
"Why SD845 in 2019??" Because this phone was released August last year...
six_tymes, 09 Jan 2019Snap dragon 845, really?! What year is it, 2017?2015... noob
The pioneer bezel less finally come out and play globally.
Well its a good phone but with just 5 inch screen it should weight even less and why it wont come with SD855 straight from the box???
ProJames-CHM, 08 Jan 2019Or I can be smart and buy older flagships for cheaper. Remain notch-free, save money. I said "once ALL phones have notches" Do you understand English?
six_tymes, 09 Jan 2019Snap dragon 845, really?! What year is it, 2017?Man SD845 is a 2018 CPU not 2017. Get your facts right.
hmm, 08 Jan 2019Sharp is as known as is Sony. But Sharp is known more in other technologies then phones. Shar... moreYou certainly do not know what are you talking about. The phone has Kevlar back as I know, it is very durable material. It has a great and curved OLED screen too, it has IP 68 rating. Why do you think it is too expensive? You will get great built in quality for sure.
