Had this phone for a month now and the phone already had a problem with white screen due to update. Brought the phone to the Service Center( contact details included in the box) and was reformatted to stock. Was also advised the it has an internal "SD CARD" of only 16GB however, it can be replaced to 32GB(SD CARD separate purchase).
Experience with the phone is fine. Limited games only but the large screen is a plus especially when watching videos. False keyboard app is also quite good.
Only sad due to no accessories available in the PH and phone is slow somtimes. Wishing that a Hard Case and other accesories will be available soon in the market.
emma, 22 Nov 2012what?! no microsd slot?! what a bummer. i've checked all the sites about this phone and they a... moreit is 20GB as they say the memory is seperated into two components, the phone memory with about 4GB n the internal memory with bout 16GB.
ok first thing first,if ur looking to get it for high end apps,i thik u better find something else. if nt it is quite a gd phone. it has no micro sd card slot, but the total internal memory equals to 20gb. for the installing oni in the phone memory,that is bullshit, jus go to the settin n set it to install into the internal memory. by default it will install in the phone memory like all phones do-.- dun see why. hmm camera...like they say nt gd...but other than that it is great, the dual sim works lyk a charm,seen better screens but i will say it is average,emails messaging r great...in other words to do work, u got a gd phone. ps. the phone gets dirty easily as its white...duh-.-....still bit weird when making a call i thik it is kinda big..may be jus me.
It is 20 gig it has 2 memorys a 4 gig phone and a 16 gig internal its a bit of a fumble to navigate hence all the negative its only 4 gig comments. It doesn't have the flare of its rivals for the money it costs your better off with just about any other phone i was going to get a samsung duo s but this caught my eye as it is allso dual sim great storage, and a screen roughly the size of a galaxy note, It does everything else you want from a smart phone but without pazzaz its like a no frills smart phone for people that dont like taking pictures... The cammera is terrible and no flash included either but it wouldnt make a difference this phone doesn't take a descent picture in any light if you want 1 of these wait a while im forcasting the price falling quickly
If you're looking for a big screen android with dual sim phone like me, this phone definitely serve you well.
Simple to use and no complicated home screen setup.
I check the Sharp web sit to find this phone But I could not. Do you know where(officially) can I find it?
My cousin is using this phone for the past few months and I never heard him complaining about the phone. In fact he used it for playing games and emails..so far so good.
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2012is this a good mobile? would you huys recommend this? what are the pros and cons?Just got the phone yesterday. No micro-SD card slot that's for sure. Screen not as good as my HTC Desire V though.
Wanted to give you feedback on one of the specifications. The Sharp SH530U does NOT have a microSD card slot. It only relies on the internal phone memory + separate internal storage memory.
Pls.. Gsm arena make a review of this phone...this is the best way to start judging the Feel UX and the brand :)
Grizzly, 18 Nov 2012This phone uses regular-sized sims, not mini-sims. Also, there's no micro-sd slot. I expec... morewhat?! no microsd slot?! what a bummer. i've checked all the sites about this phone and they all claim it can expand up to 32 gigs, even in this very website. thats serious misinformation! thanks grizzly for clearing that up. now im not sure if i still want to buy this. and about the internal memory, is it only just 4gig and not really 20gig as they claim?

Also, there's no micro-sd slot.
I expected the screen to be horrible but im pleasantly surprised. Not the same sharpness as gaaxy note but sharp enough for video playback.
It's a good buy if you will mainly use it for media.
Gaming not exceptional, also it only uses the 4gb phone memory for apps. So you can only install a few apps and maybe 1 heavy game.
I bought it for only for $299 and for me it offers good value for money.
