Released in early February 2013, the SH-05E is advertised as a "kids' phone" and, indeed, if we look underneath the now standard smartphone appearance, we will see it is not a phone a grown up person would pick.
The Docomo Junior SH-05E has a 4.1 inch CG Silicon LCD screen and QHD resolution (540 x 960 px), 1 GB of RAM and a dula-core Qualcomm MSM8960 processor humming at 1.5 Ghz. The built-in storage memory is 8 GB and can be expanded using SDXC cards of up to 64 GB.
The SH-05E comes with a 12.1 megapixel main shooter and a 0.3 MP secondary camera.
It supports LTE (Xi), HSPA (3G) and GSM frequencies, is Bluetooth and IR-enabled, but does not have Wi-Fi, and also includes the Felica mobile wallet and the Japan-standard disaster early-warning Area Mail.
The SH-05E is water- and dust-proof just like all other Japanese phones released in the past couple of years.
The SH-05E allows parents to control the usage of the phone by setting restrictions on time of day and maximum aduration for voice calls, and control email and online activity. the SP-mode filter blocks access to harmful sites, and dialling can be confined to only the numbers already existing in the address book. Additionally, the phone will automatically dial a preset contact upon a long press.
The SH-05E has been stripped of other Android commonplace features such as Google Play and Gmail. Pre-installed are a number of education and child-appropriate apps. Downloading of new apps is only possible through a dedicated menu.
The SH-05E runs on Android 4.0, measures 117 x 63 x 10.6 mm and weighs 120 grams. It is available in blue, pink and white.
