Sheduled for release in the spring of 2019, Docomo are releasing their first flip keitai in a year and a half (the SH-02K came out at the end of November 2017).

Flip keitais are now traditionally low-spec and are not made to impress – their target market segment is those who can't or won't get used to large-screen smartphones.

The SH-02L has the...

Docomo have officially announced their version of the low-ramge Aquos Sense 2, codenamed SH-01L. Market release is scheduled for Winter 2018.

The Aquos Sense 2 SH-01L comes with a 5.5-inch IGZO panel with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels (FHD+) and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The frame has been further decreased in comparison with...

Docomo announced the Aquos R2 (SH-03K) for their Summer 2018 collection on 16 May. They will be offering it in premium black, platinum white, and coral pink.

The Aquos R2 greatest novelty is the cameras – but unlike in other manufacturers where the two sensors work together, the rear cameras on the Aquos R2 are independent – one is for movies...

The Aquos Mobile SH-02K is part of the Winter 2017/2018 collection and is a business-class mobile phone (quite the opposite of "exciting" as in flagships). Like its predecessor, the SH-03H, it has no camera and no entertainment functions (e.g. OneSeg TV, social networking apps).

What the SH-02K has is security and durability – it is the only type...

Scheduled for release in early November 2017, the Aquos sense SH-01K by Docomo 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...

Docomo's Summer 2017 series only features one new model – the Aquos R, here dubbed SH-03J, unlike Softbank, which also released a low-spec device, the Aquos ea (605SH).

As you will have noticed, the Aquos R is nothing but a Samsung (S6/S7) knock-off. Although weilding some amazing specs, the design lacks any individuality whatsoever and...

Released on 21st October 2016 is Docomo's latest iteration of the flip keitai, the Aquos Mobile SH-01J.

It has the standard 3.4-inch display with QHD resolution (960 × 540 px) and of course an external miniature information display (0.9 inches/36 × 128 px). The main display supports Sharp's latest "Relax Image Quaility"...

Scheduled for release in November 2016 is Docomo's Aquos Ever SH-02J, a device that utterly fails to impress.

The SH-02J is mid-range at best: it comes with a 5-inch IGZO display which guarantees long battery life – and indeed, it is advertised as capable of lasting "three days or more", of course depending on usage. The screen resolution...

Sharp and Docomo have just announced the flagship of their Summer 2016 collection, the new Aquos iPhone... oops, sorry, I mean the new Aquos Zeta SH-04H. In a new and natural form that they call "Comfort & Quality", blah-blah... "Oh, Sharp are trying to copy iPhone," I said to a friend when I saw the release announcement....

Released in late February 2016, the Aquos SH-03H is a strictly-for-business traditional keitai: it lacks camera and entertainment functions, but lays a strong emphasis on security and durability.

The SH-03H is the phone you can bring with in one of those factories and offices where camera equipment is not allowed. It also lacks OneSeg and SNS applications...
