If it's gonna be overpriced for new specs and good specs, it will sell no matter the brand. Take OnePlus, good specs, good phone. Guess what, they sell millions of phones worldwide
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2020You never heard about it because they sell LESS. Simple fact.Huawei selling less? Get outta here lmaooo

Nice phone, weeb
Looks nice - microSD, headphone jack, water resistance, sharp screen, lots of RAM, and lots of storage. The notches are ugly, though. I'd maybe buy it if it eventually has North American LTE/NR bands.

Any electronic can break, no matter who makes it.
How about when a phone battery explode? Usually are Sa,sung, xiaomi and apple.
Never heard of Huawei, Oppo, Sony, Htc, vivo phones exploding.

2) 1.000.000:1 contrast makes it looks "nicer", does not mean accuracy.
3) oled used 2x the energy of LCD when white image is displayed, like websites.
DrakeX, 17 Feb 2020IPS isn't bad, it's just that OLED is always better. They have infinite contrast ratio, better... moreYou done know any better...
High refresh rates
Whites and Grays
Lower sharpness (especially modern non RGB OLED)
In consistent ageing of different pixels (especially blue ones)
Biggest downfall is... Room for growth oled is mature and is at a dead end
Oled isnt more energy efficient it has better efficiency at lower brightness, LCD mops the floor with oled at higher brightness,
Its ironic that you post this here on an IGZO LCD screen phone that is king of energy efficiency
Most people hate the look of the notch for selfie cameras so whos' bright idea was it to put another (even more hideous) notch at the bottom? Other than that this looks like a pretty solid phone
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2020Yeah. It is the company that created the design Xiaomi copied to created Mi Mix.
Yes, Sharp ... moreTo be honest, the Mi Mix series aren't my most favourite series by Xiaomi but they are one of company's biggest hit. It's true that Sharp created such device with same conseption but it was an unstable useless prototype that after several months or even weeks of usage just get broken (similar to the first foldable phones now). Mi Mix was the first really fine (or at least acceptable) working phone from this kind, with good specs & price and worldwide distribution - this was the real innovation. To invent doesn't mean just to create. To invent means to create something stable, useful, practical, accessible with affordable reasonable price & specs and wide availability. That Xiaomi do best - that's why I love their products so much. Just like Tomas Edison's case - he doesn't really crafted the first lightbulb because before his innovation there were several prototypes of lightbulbs but they all had been working only for few hours and didn't make sense to use them. He created the first really usable lightbulb with long lifespan, affordable price and easy massive production - that's why we remember him, not the guys before him.
I hope I have explained it well enough ;-)
Sharp has never disappointed, and as far as I'm concerned, this isn't disappointing either.
Yes you could say the design lacks inspiration & originality, but the same can be said about the majority of phones coming out of late. At least the front looks unique (whether you can deal with dual-notch design is upto you). Specs are pretty solid. Sharp displays are pretty good, and their phones also give good battery timing. Cameras were not that great, but i assume that has improved by now.
Overall, i like it. I'm glad to see Sharp continue to launch new phones.
Very excited to see capacitive fingerprint scanner is coming back. To me it's the best way to lock and unlock your phone . Not only it's very fast but you can also take advantages in navigating.
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2020Exactly this. It's astonishing how much weight spec sheet has and I find it baffling that just... moreIPS isn't bad, it's just that OLED is always better. They have infinite contrast ratio, better energy efficiency and more colours. It's also more expensive to manufacture and replace yet those mid range phones are still able to maintain their pricing. Why should you get something more inferior?
