Yeah... if only that bottom bezel was gone... it would have been the king of compact phones.

My OCD is going to screw me if I buy this phone. But anyway looks like compact really means compact and not downgrade.

Wonder why they didn't make the bottom bezels as thin as the top, would've been perfect.

I'm guessing their front facing camera and various sensors are at the bottom. Since it seems like there isn't any much space at the top.

Agreed, top bezel is perfect but bottom bezel ruins it.

there is no front camera to it, which is a big drawback.

i think there is front camera on the bottom right..

There is a front facing camera at the bottom right part of the phone. Sharp always puts it there im using a 104sh.

Sharp should sell their smartphone worldwide.

The Z1 Compact finally gets some proper competition. Interesting :)

why do nt they sell worldwide, they do have their network, their LED's are available in most parts of the world then y not mobiles?

If the top and bottom bezels were symmetrical and it was thinner, I would probably import it.

If this phone is a monster - then, the CoolPad 9976A must be a GODZILLA...
18. networkdood (Posts: 6329; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
Sorry, 4.5 inch screens are too small - they should had made it a 5.5 inch screen...would had been awesome, I bet...

Wow, they actually put the volume keys below the display! Logically thinking, thats actually quite handy.
