Sharp's first phones for the year: an incredibly compact Aquos mini, and a stylish flip K

EDGEST design paradigm, meaning that the top bezel is incredibly narrow, bestowing a superior screen-to-body ratio to an already rather compact handset. The mini Aquos edition sports a 4.5" 1080p display, returning the rather generous 487ppi pixel density, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 chipset, and 13 MP camera on the back. Sharp's newest IGZO display tech edition is what will return two to three days of operation on a single charge of the 2120 mAh battery, and the munchkin is waterproof, too.First in line is the Aquos mini SHV31, which features, you guessed it, the company's
The second handset is... a flip phone. That's right, in the era of big-screen smartphones, Sharp decided to out a refreshingly nostalgic Aquos K, which looks very slim and stylish, has a powerful 13 MP camera on the back, capable of 1080p video, high pixel density, and a sensing trackpad for navigation of the interface that is skinned a lot like Android, with a full-featured browser, and Google's search field on the home page. Any takers?

Cause there's almost no top and side bezel, but the bottom bezel is huge Not a problem IMO But I'd prefer if the top bezel was the huge one, so the front camera is at the top, and so its easier to reach the top corners

Finally! A properly sized phone with a decent screen and battery life. If they don't screw up something this should be a good seller. I would buy one as I have no desire to tote a phablet around in my pocket! As in, tired of the jokes ("Is that a phablet or are you just happy to see me?!").
