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....

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 new Aquos Mobile SH-06G signals the complete switch to highly customised Android and the abandonment of the Symbian-based OS for Sharp's flip-keitais, the feature-righ phones that drew so many, myself included, to Japanese phones.

Unfortunately, this switch, commencing with AU's SHF31 last winter, continues the trend of rolling out rather low-spec phones,...

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...

The Aquos Phone sv SH-10D appears to be the smaller brother of the SH-09D from the Summer 2012 DoCoMo collection. The "sv" in the model name stands for "Super Viewer".

The SH-10D features a 4.5-inch CG-Silicon display with HD resolution (1280 x 720) and is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor. It has...

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...

The Aquos Compact SH-02H is the smaller device Sharp released in the Winter 2015/2016 collection, out in December 2015.

Like its bigger brother, the SH-02H has very narrow top and size bezel (EDGEST series) for maximum screen surface for its 4.7-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080px) screen that is built using the IGZO technology for optimum energy efficiency....
