Although we will not see them here, we like to go teaching how are new products from Sharp for the Japanese market, mainly by that advance solutions and details of design that can make trends, or others can copy. Also want to know better to the Sharp SH-04F Aquos.
If we are here getting well used to terminals take well advantage of its dimensions with respect to the screen, or what is the same, as the frames are small. The idea is to create more compact phones with larger screens and have the example with the LG G3 just analyze.
Sharp has been working on this way for generations of Android phones, and we could say that they are those who are leading. With the SH-04F Aquos have achieved that the 81% of the front surface is screen.
Looking at it with popular figures, we have that they have gotten into 140 x 74 x 9.3 mm a 5.4 inch screen. Its Japanese competitor of Sony, Xperia Z2, measured 146,8 x 73.3 x 8.2 mm with a 5.2-inch display.
A more potent reference is the LG G3, with 5.5 inch screen and a full size of 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9 mm. As you can see, thickness aside, the Sharp frontal dimensions are at the best level.
It is possible that they could refine further with dimensions, especially the thickness, but it is that Sharp has decided that your phone is also waterproof, with a certified IP57. Also blame the fact of having included a large enough battery, with 3. 300mAh.
If they were not happy with the got size, inside does not lack detail to compete with the most powerful handsets appearing: IGZO screen with Full HD resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB of internal memory (expandable), 13.1 and 2.1 megapixel camera, and Android 4.4.2 cameras.
