The Sharp Aquos 206SH is a smartphone that will arrive in Japan and is highly unlikely to get to our side of Earth, but it’s still a device worth the mention…

Why can't we get good phones like sharp in the u.s? Now that's one massive battery I would love to have!

And Sharp is having financial problems? Perhaps they should expand the number of markets they sell their toys in?

there is no-minor difference in all android phones, this has almost the same specifications as the sony xperia z and SGS4 despite this people say that its not good...

Two days battery life mean 48 hours non-stop usage. Motorola Razer Maxx with 3300mAh battery last 30 hours not Full HD display.

Sharp is not available in US but it's available in Philippines.

I'll try amazon when it's available in the u.s. You can always buy a good Japanese import phones

This isn't a smart move for sharp as the US is a very large smartphone market and with this device they could probably out sell apple and samsung there.

As sharp as a Sharp! Impressive!
Good job Sharp!

Don't forget to try some sushi! Their sushi is the best in the world!

Other manufacturers should also follow the trend of putting bigger batteries on their flagship smartphone. I'm impressed with sharp with the moves they're doing right now

Japan's Softbank GSM or CDMA? If this would run on T-Mobile, be interesting to see if they'd ship it to a US customer.
17. Blazers (Posts: 191; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
They use W-CDMA (HSPA+) 2100 for 3G, and they use FFD-LTE Band I (2100 MHz) for 4G which is not compatible with US LTE networks.

Great phones in Japan and China that aren't exported. Wouldn't mind taking a look at this phone.

How much is the population of Japan.......???? how these companies survive only by selling their products in Japan........... Hope they will move out of Japan, to international markets, just like small Chinese OEM's are expanding their business in other Asian and European countries........

Ya... I am also wondering the same...

The last time I purchased a Sharp product was 14 years ago,

Most Japanese phones looks good on paper but once they are released to the international market they flop both in sales and critics reviews.
