The screen is awesome(not suprising since they sell HD TV's). Just pretty hard to get.
I actually have owned one for almost 1 yr. The bezels (or rather the lack of) is great and the build quality is excellent but there are certain points that make it a frustration to use
1) Lagginess. For some reason the phone lags like there is no tomorrow. I am suspecting it is due to the Softbank bloatware but disabling most of it doesn't help much. Either that or its the overly aggressive thermal throttling on the SD810. In anycase, I couldn't solve it and it is a major pain :(
2) the lousy main camera. The main camera is S***. The images produced are horrible in auto mode. In manual mode, you can still salvage a passable photo but still far away from the quality on corresponding flagships
3) Software update (or the lack off). Lets face it , if you are using it out of japan, you are stuffed. Without a Softbank unisim, you basically cannot updtate the phone and even if you do, you are still on lollipop now. That's like unforgivable for a last year flagship
4) Sound . The speakers are tinny. With the bezeless design, sacrifices are necessary but you will really strain your ears to listen even at max vol

I used one of their products and was then the best when compared to the latest model of Nokia in 2005. I love this product. I wish if I could find one to buy locally. That handset came all the way from Vodafone UK.
Manbucha, 12 Apr 2016Can I get one in the UK or USA?Unfortunately I'm in the same boat (UK) and the only way we can get them is imports from Japan. This is proof that other companies use unnecessary bezels. I would love to have the chance to look at/buy one over here.
I am using Sharp Aquas Crystal for the last four months which I bought on eBay brand new and I wouldn't hesitate to say that this is the best android phone I have come across in as many years.

It's sad to see a unique phone like this to be so underrated. Sharp certainly needs to step up its game when it comes to marketing.
