It is funny how one day you win a Best Design award with your smartphones, and the next day you release something that lacks any individuality, something that looks almost exactly like the iPhone and the bulk of slab devices out there. The wave of no-uniqueness has hit AU as well and they are releasing their branded version of the SH-04H on Docomo and Aquos Xx3 on Softbank.

In mid-May 2010, Sharp began sales of the "developer" version of a new mobile communication device, called the IS01.

Scheduled for release in early November 2017, the Aquos sense SHV40 by AU KDDI is a mid-range device with little to set it apart from the rest of mid-range Aquos phones. It continues the now-traditional, eye-displeasing and uncomfortable huge-bezel design that makes me wonder if Sharp designers are intentionally trying to bankrupt the company's...

Sensational! A flip keitai by Sharp running Android! Well, kind of... Because it is a heavily modified version of Android 4.4. KitKat lacking Google Play and the ability to side-load apps.

Part of AU's Spring 2015 collection, the Aquos K SHF31 comes in the traditional elegant and beloved flip form: a 3.4-inch screen but now with qHD...

The Aquos Serie SHV32 comes with a 5-inch Full HD IGZO screen and new generation backlighiting "for subtle colour representation" dubbed as S-PureLED. The device is also part of the EDGEST...
