Too much bezel on the bottom. Shave it off and utilize only what's needed for the front camera. Then you'd have an 125x67 phone which is practically one handed. Via the use of oled and some smart placing you would get it to get bellow 1cm in thickness. The first (and probably the last) usable 5inch phone.
And don't get me started on phones that need two hands to operate. Ever since I got one I do things half as fast as I used to... But I've got used to the big screen, so I long to get back to a usable phone, *with* a big screen this time around. Sharp has their heart set right.
I would honestly rather have this phone than any of this years flagships, except maybe G3. This design is awesome, and I really hope that Sharp phones will soon be available globally.
Weird that Virgin would get the black version and Boost gets the white. Usually the other way around. Also, it uses a tech similar to Kyocera's for the ear piece.

this looks like a statement...a demonstration. otherwise it has no logic. you don't need zero bezel in the upper part of the phone. you do need however an ear piece, a proximity sensor and the camera.
congrats to them for managing this though

The bezel at the bottom should have been minimized and should have been distributed to the top so that we can make sure that we still have an earpiece going on. I like the design though.
